LCG: Nepal leads the world in gender reform

Nepal leads the world in gender reform.

The South Asian nation of Nepal decriminalized sodomy in 2007. This year (2011), census workers recorded not only the male and female genders, but also a “third gender.””In what is believed to be a world first, Nepal’s Central Bureau of Statistics is giving official recognition to gay and transgender people–a move seen as a major victory for equality in a country that only decriminalized homosexual relationships three years ago.” Gender rights groups in Nepal have used the courts to pressure the government into adopting policies that do not necessarily represent the views of the majority in the nation. One government spokesman for the Statistics Bureau noted, “… the new categorization was an attempt to open up the traditionally conservative country up to different points of view” (, May 31, 2011).

God warned through the Apostle Paul that, “in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves… unholy… without self-control… despisers of good” (2 Timothy 3:1-3). We are witnessing a time when our global society is increasingly despising what is good and endorsing evil instead–just as God predicted!

Of course, few in Nepal actually claim to believe the Bible.  Perhaps they should read it.  Yet, the Bible teaches:

15 Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city! (Matthew 10:15)

People everywhere, including in Nepal, need to repent. But God is a merciful God of love and wants none to perish, but all to repent:

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

The New Testament also shows that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed as an example:

6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; 7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire (Jude 6-7).

Sadly, Nepal is encouraging the going after what the Bible calls “strange flesh”.  But those there, and elsewhere, will receive an opportunity to repent.
