Transgender agenda: ‘Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil’

‘Pride’ parade


The transgender agenda, which is part of the the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender (LGBT) agenda, is pushing ahead in many parts of the USA.

November 7, 2015

The views of religiously conservative Americans no longer dominate U.S. culture or law. How will LGBT supporters engage with their perspectives on sexuality?  …

The idea that gender and sex are distinct is fairly new. In the United States, psychologists and social theorists began seriously developing “gender theory”—roughly, the idea that male/femaleness is socially constructed, whereas sex is biologically determined—in the late 1960s. This idea has become overwhelmingly accepted in American culture. It is embedded in terminology guidelines from medical groups like the American Medical Association and American Psychological Association; media organizations like the Associated Press; and, of course, LGBT advocacy organizations such as GLAAD. …

Courts across the country are facing new questions of how to balance LGBT rights with religious liberty. Communities are wrestling with confusing challenges, like how schools should assign gender labels to bathrooms and how city governments should write gay-discrimination ordinances…

In Utah, for example, lawmakers passed legislation prohibiting LGBT housing and employment discrimination while allowing certain exemptions for religious groups, the result of a collaboration between LGBT and faith organizations.

It is more than ‘discrimination’ that is happening-those who want to identify males as males and females as females are facing difficulties.  Notice:

Daycare workers fired for refusing transgender demands

2 male parents insisted daughter, 6, be called boy

Two daycare workers in Texas – one of whom is the author of a Christian book – were fired after they refused to refer to a six-year-old girl in their care as a boy.

The demand came from the girl’s two male parents, Breitbart reported. The dads also demanded the girl, whose hair was cut short like a boy’s, also be called by a masculine name.

Madeline Kirksey, who has penned a book for the Christian crowd, told Breitbart she was most concerned about confusing the little girl by calling her “John,” which was not the name given at her birth, and by referring to her as a boy. Kirksey and another worker at the Childrens’ Lighthouse Learning Center in Katy, Texas, were fired, Breitbart said. …The fired worker who asked to remain anonymous actually contacted Child Protective Services about the dads’ treatment of the little girl.

So, you can be fired for not calling a girl a boy!  Child Protective Services should have removed the girl from her homosexual parents, but it no longer seems to consider this child abuse–which trying to make a girl a boy most certainly is.

Earlier this week, the US Department of Education ordered a school district in Illinois to allow a boy to be able to have access to the girls’ locker room and shower at any time, as well as to be allowed to play as a girl on an all girl sports’ team (see also  US DOE orders Illinois school district to allow boy to shower with girls):

The Department of Education is demanding that an Illinois school district allow a boy who identifies as a girl and plays sports on a girls team to have full access to the locker room and showers with the girls on the team.

The district has only 30 days to comply, or it stands to lose Title IX federal funding. …

“All students deserve the opportunity to participate equally in school programs and activities – this is a basic civil right,” Assistant U.S. Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon said in a statement Monday.

The district issued a statement in disagreement with the Department of Education ruling, saying its top concern was protecting the privacy of its students.

This DOE demand is absurd, yet the acceptance of the transgender agenda keeps growing from where it was a few years ago.

Did you know that in California, it is the law to teach homosexual and transgender history? This was law signed in back in 2011:

Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown said Thursday he had signed a bill that will require public schools in the state to teach students about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.

For those unfamiliar, here is how Wikipedia defines being “transgendered” (viewed 06/24/13):

Transgender is the state of one’s gender identity (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one’s assigned sex (identification by others as male, female or intersex based on physical/genetic sex)

A Michigan woman’s Planet Fitness membership was revoked after she complained about a transgender person in the women’s locker room.

Yvette Cormier, a 48, said she was walking into the Midland Planet Fitness locker room last Saturday when she saw someone “dressed like a man.”

The person was wearing a wig and “a little bit of blush,” but was “huge” and appeared “very manly,” Cormier told ABC News today.

“I just stopped right there in my tracks,” she said. “It was a man for sure.”

Cormier, who had been a Planet Fitness member for two months, said she went to the front desk immediately. The man at the desk told her that Planet Fitness policy is “whatever gender you feel you are, that’s the locker room you’re allowed to go in,” she said.

“And then he said, ‘We’ve had lots of complaints about him but we told him to go change in a stall,’” Cormier said.

“He said, ‘if you’re uncomfortable with that you can wait until he’s done in there,’” she said. “I stood back and said, ‘How about he waits until I’m done in the women’s locker room. Or get a unisex bathroom.’ He asked if I would like to talk to the manager and I said, ‘I’m calling corporate.’” …

“I wouldn’t have signed up for this gym if I knew that ahead of time,” Cormier said, adding that the gym is “failing to protect me if anything happens in those locker rooms with a man.”

She said she went back to the gym the next few days and “told everyone in the locker room what happened.” She said everyone she talked to “was appalled.”

On Thursday, Cormier said, Planet Fitness Corporate called and revoked her membership immediately.

“They said, ‘You are talking to people about him in the women’s locker room. You are making people upset.’ That’s my whole point,” she said. “I’m telling them and warning them because you are not doing that. You allow men in there, and we are appalled by it.”

Planet Fitness Director of Public Relations McCall Gosselin said the gym is “committed to creating a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for our members. Our gender identity non-discrimination policy states that members and guests may use all gym facilities based on their sincere self-reported gender identity.”

The statement continued, “The manner in which this member expressed her concerns about the policy exhibited behavior that management at the Midland club deemed inappropriate and disruptive to other members, which is a violation of the membership agreement and as a result her membership was cancelled.”

Gosselin added, “As our statement outlines, her membership was not cancelled as a result of complaints about our policy, as we welcome all feedback from our members. Rather, it was the manner in which her concerns were expressed that club management felt was inappropriate, which resulted in the cancellation.”

A Michigan Planet Fitness canceled a woman’s membership after she campaigned to get a transgender person, whom she described as “a man,” booted from the women’s locker room.

“The manner in which this member expressed her concerns about the policy exhibited behavior that management at the Midland club deemed inappropriate and disruptive to other members,” said a statement from the Planet Fitness gym in Midland County, Mich.

The gym called the woman’s actions a “violation of the membership agreement” and the chain’s policy of a “no judgment zone.”

Notice something from a Jewish group:

November 5, 2015

The largest Jewish group in North America adopted a broad transgender rights policy on Thursday, not only stating its own commitment to equality, but also urging synagogues and other Jewish groups to be advocates for transgender rights and to take steps like training their staffs on accommodating transgender people.

“We have a longstanding commitment to bringing in people who have heretofore been on the margins of society,” said Rabbi Rick Jacobs, the president of the Union for Reform Judaism. “For us, this is not just political correctness, but opening possibilities theologically.”

Opening possibilities theologically?

The Hebrew scriptures that the Jews claim to believe teach the following, and the following are Jewish translations into English:

5 A woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment; for whosoever doeth these things is an abomination unto the LORD thy God. (Deuteronomy 22:5, JPS Tanakh 1917)

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, And good evil; That change darkness into light, And light into darkness; That change bitter into sweet, And sweet into bitter! (Isaiah 5:20, JPS Tanakh 1917)

27 And God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. (Genesis 1:27, JPS Tanakh 1917)

The New Testaments also condemn aspects of the transgender movement:

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10, KJV)

Much associated with the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender (LGBT) agenda is an abomination to God. And that agenda is also targeting children.

It is not just Jews who are having theological issues, notice this from a Protestant:

When pastors bear false witness against transgender people

November 6, 2015

by Morgan Guyton …

Pastors in Houston preached sermons and organized a massive campaign against transgender people. They invested hundreds of volunteers and hundreds of hours of time advocating in favor of discrimination. Instead of building the kingdom of God. How is that Christian discipleship? How does that exude the spirit of Christ in any sense? How is that evangelistic? Now, more and more people living in Houston have yet another reason not to give Jesus a chance. The equal rights ordinance actually had a religious exemption incorporated into it. Steve Wells, the current pastor of South Main Baptist Church where I grew up in Houston, observed that “though he believed some of the behaviors protected by the ordinance were sinful, the law would not keep him from believing that.” But this didn’t stop other pastors from lusting after that need to feel “persecuted” by persecuting others.

This is why we Christians are the people from whom Jesus needs to save the world the most. All slanderers will have to answer to God.  …

About Morgan Guyton

I’m the director of the NOLA Wesley Foundation, which is the United Methodist campus ministry at Tulane and Loyola University in New Orleans, LA.

All will answer to God and be judged for their words (Matthew 12:39) and works (Revelation 20:12.  And pastors should point out sin (cf. Isaiah 58:1) and not promote it (Jude 4-8). The Gospel of the Kingdom of God explains how that living according to God’s ways are best for humanity–it is not good to stay in a transgendered state of mind.

As far as ‘religious protections’ are concerned, they are becoming more limited: expect those to erode and criticism of transgenderism to be hate speech and/or discriminatory.

What should parents do to reduce ‘gender confusion’?  Consider the following:

6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9)

6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6).

There is no such thing as two same-sex parents in actuality, nor is one a different gender than their actual genitalia.

33 God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33)

The transgender agenda brings to mind the following from the New Testament:

22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:22-32)

Notice that the Bible condemns not only sexual immorality, but those who approve of various forms of it.

Yet despite biblical warnings, many modern leaders are endorsing the LGBT agenda. The Bible, however, warns about such leaders:

12…Those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths. (Isaiah 3:12)

16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err, And those who are led by them are destroyed (Isaiah 9:16).

So, leaders that ignore what the Bible teaches are leading others toward destruction. Perhaps I should mention that there are two bills in the Congress of the USA that will make all of this LGBT situation even worse–for some details watch Is the US Congress eliminating the 1st Amendment?

The USA will, within the next couple of decades, be no more. The agenda its government is pushing cannot succeed and is contributing to its decline and ultimate destruction:

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)

Promoting transgender ‘rights’ is putting darkness for light.

Because of speech ‘laws’ and actions, the time will more and more come when the following is fulfilled:

13 Therefore the prudent keep silent at that time, For it is an evil time. (Amos 5:13)

Until then, however, we in the Continuing Church of God are striving to fulfill the following:

1 “Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins. (Isaiah 58:1)

The transgender agenda is sinful and it promotes abomination.  This agenda is another one of the sins of the ‘house of Jacob,’ which includes the USA (see Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).  This will not end well for the USA (Romans 1:32; Daniel 11:39).
