Just to be plain about it: transgenderism is a way of thinking born of Satan. Through the many generations of this country, there have always been some people who identified as part of the fringe elements, that is, they were not normal in accordance with society. Tragically, the norms of society have changed wherein the fringe-element seems to be normal with some, while those with conservative Christian values are regarded as out of step with society. From this, people can’t tell you what is right, or even wrong. If, perchance, they can, you can be nearly sure they can’t tell you why something is right or wrong, only that they feel that it is. Press them on this, and you’ll get the answer, “I don’t know why!”
Evidently many descendants from the WW2 generation developed a convoluted way of thinking associated with freedom from God and the moral constraints He obligates. They are not only populated on this country’s coasts, but now run rampant (amuck) in our universities teaching the younger generations. And, why not? If there is no God to whom we must give an account for the life lived (a lie they willingly embrace), just live as you want. Remember: “Do your own thing, man!”?
In the book of Judges, the nation of Israel was trying to find their way religiously, geographically, and to whom they would be loyal. As they were doing this, they were struggling (and failing) to implement the Lord’s way; while some wanted to stay loyal to the Lord, many chose a different path, they did not want to go the way of holiness or righteousness. Consequently, the nation had many tragic ups and downs in life. In Judges 17, the Scripture reads, “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (17:6, ESV).
Replace the word “king” with the word “God” and the idea plays out the same in our country.
The psalmist wrote, “…for behold, the wicked bend the bow; they have fitted their arrow to the string to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart; if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:2-3)
When the Lord is kicked to the side, when the Lord’s moral constraints for the community is replaced with something else, evil takes hold and innocent people suffer. This is the way of thinking, necessarily, of every secular liberal and progressive leader in this country. They want nothing to do with the Lord unless it advances their agenda.
Transgenderism is an ideology born of Satan and “he” is having a profound impact. If/when you resist on moral grounds, rather than dealing with the substance of the argument, the one on the moral-short-end of the argument disparages and raises a mob ruckus to suppress the one who offered it. “Exactly whose morality are we to follow?” they ask with condescension and the lack of moral wisdom.
As with people, so with nations, “And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment…” (Heb. 9:27).
