The Terrible Danger of Mistaking Perception for Reality (Part 2)
This needs to stop before it gets out of hand!
In part one of this two part article, we explored the issue of gender-neutral restrooms and changing facilities in public places such as schools, universities, locker rooms, restaurants, and the like. It was prompted by North Carolina's House Bill 2, which was signed into law in early April 2016, and got widespread media attention and sparked a national debate on whether or not transgender citizens should be allowed to use the bathroom designated specifically for the biological sex they identify with, rather than the opposite one that corresponds to their actual biological sex.
The thief [Satan] comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.— Jesus Christ (John 10:10-11)
Confusing, but not complicated: Cisgender is the Opposite of Transgender; but as a Cisgender you can be Gay or Straight...
"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace..." ~ 1 Corinthians 14:33— God
Here is Where it Starts to Get Interesting, yet Absurdly CraZy
The problem is the lifestyle of the LGBTQummunity is contrary to nature and the Word of God—The Holy Bible. As a result, many who prefer this lifestyle do not believe in God, or like everything else, they attempt to redefine who or what God is under their terms; in order to fit the concept into their lifestyle.
They have gone so far as to rewrite and create their own translation or LGBT version of the Bible. "In an effort to resolve 'long-standing interpretive ambiguity in key Bible passages regarding homosexuality' a new version of the classic King James Bible — this one titled The Queen James Bible — claims to be the first ever gay friendly Bible to 'correctly' [sic] translate the Christian scriptures." (Huffington Post).
They've created terms regarding sexuality contrary to God's original design. And the sad thing is, they've convince most of the world that they ought to be accepted as normal and right:
- Gay is a homosexual male.
- Lesbian is a homosexual female.
- Bi-sexual is a male or female that sexually enjoys both males and females.
- Transgender/Transsexual is a male who identifies as a woman, or a woman who identifies as a man; even though the vast majority of them haven't gotten a sex change.
"The fact is that very few transgender people seek sex reassignment surgery, whether because of cost, personal beliefs, concern about surgical risks or the limitations of available procedures. In a recent survey of 6,450 transgender people in the U.S. conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, fewer than 25% of transgender women had undergone genital surgery, and fewer than 5% of transgender men had." ~ Lambda Legal
- Cisgender is one who identifies with their own biological sex.
- Heterosexuals are automatically presumed to be cisgender.
- Homosexuals, male or female can also be cisgender and gay, lesbian or Bi at the same time.
- Yet when it comes to Transgenders, cisgender is the opposite of transgender, but some, like Kaitlyn Jenner, still sexually prefer someone of the opposite sex. Go figure. #SMH
I'm I the only one who sees the overwhelming confusion and chaos in this nonsense?
So in a desperate attempt to validate and legitimize their lifestyle, under the guise of "civil rights" they're on a quest to socially re-engineer and redefine society by redefining marriage, redefining God, redefining His Word, redefining gender and now redefining the use of public restrooms and changing facilities. #SMH
This makes about as much sense as ones IQ not defining their intelligence, or ones physique not defining their level of fitness or ones chromosomes not defining their sex.
This is not only Spiritual Warfare...this nonsense is MADNESS!!!— Mike Gentry
This is not fiction! It's the real story of a man who identified as a woman but who now identifies as a female dragon—and has a big Facebook following.— Dr. Michael Brown has spent years committed to spiritual awakening, moral and cultural reformation.
The Bottom Line and Crux of the Matter is the Battle for Your Soul
After seeing this you must conclude that this person has a serious psychotic disorder or is demon-possessed. There is absolutely no other explanation. I opt for the latter, for even "Eva Tiamat Baphomet Medusa" which she calls herself, also claims to be Legion 4WRMNY. This reminds me of a passage of Scripture in Luke 8:26-39, when Jesus restored a demon-possessed man, and asked him:
“What is your name?”
“Legion,” he replied, because many demons had gone into him. And they begged Jesus repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss.
A large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside. The demons begged Jesus to let them go into the pigs, and he gave them permission. When the demons came out of the man, they went into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned."
You may not 'perceive' nor believe that Richard Hernandez a.k.a. "Eva Tiamat Baphomet Medusa" is demon-possessed, but this man claims the identity, not only of a woman, but also a female dragon and the persona called Legion 4WRMNY. If that is not the epitome of demon-possession, then what is it?
However, if he/she/it lives an otherwise normal life, no one will bother him; and the LGBTQummunity expects this person to use any public restroom he wants, no matter how much his appearance may be shocking to children and adults alike.
To abandon the sexual identity that God made you to be, is like spitting in His face while telling Him he made a huge mistake.
‘Transgender’ Preacher Tells Baptist Gathering ‘Angel of Reason’ Helped Affirm His Desire to Be a Woman
According to the Christian News Network, "the nation’s first “transgender” Baptist preacher spoke to a national Baptist gathering on April 8, explaining that the doctor who delivered him as a baby was wrong in declaring him a boy, and that it was an “angel of reason” that caused him to accept his inclinations to identify as a woman."
It's worth being said again, to abandon the sexual identity that God made you to be, is like spitting in His face while telling Him he made a huge mistake.
For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.— God in Psalm 139:13-16
What the LGBTQummunity fails to realize is, the One True Living God of the Bible has already proven Himself throughout time, whether they or anyone else for that matter, believes in Him or not. We are not only physical beings, we are spiritual beings with an eternal soul (Mind, Will and Emotions).
Our bodies are driven by our fleshly sinful nature craving the appetites of this world, which are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life; all of which are not from God the Father, but from this evil world (1 John 2:16). Consider the following Scriptures concerning human nature:
- Our hearts are deceitful and desperately sick (Jer. 17:9).
- We are full of evil (Mark 7:21-23).
- We love darkness rather than light (John 3:19).
- We are unrighteous, do not understand, do not seek for God (Rom. 3:10-12).
- We are helpless and ungodly (Rom. 5:6).
- We are dead in our trespasses and sins (Eph. 2:1).
- We are by nature children of wrath (Eph. 2:3).
- We cannot understand spiritual things (1 Cor. 2:14).
According to the Bible, mankind is distinct from all the rest of creation, including animals and beasts, birds of the air or fish in the sea; in that we are made in the image of God.
"Then God said; Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (Genesis 1:26-27 NASB)
As God is a tripartite (three distinct persons in One) – Father, Son and Holy Spirit– hence Him saying "Let us make man in 'our' image. So man too is three parts –body, soul and spirit. In the most explicit example from Scripture of these divisions, the Apostle Paul writes:
"Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may yourspirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Thessalonians 5:23 NASB).
Rather than get further into a theological discussion on this matter, I'll let readers contemplate and meditate on this for a while. However, God is pure and holy. He made us to be like Him, without sin. But He also gave us free-will to choose to be holy or follow our sinful nature. Without the Spirit of God dwelling within us, we have no other choice but to sin (Romans 8).
God is spirit and He seeks those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). That is the truth of who He is, the truth of His Word and the truth of who you truly are; and in the sincerity of your love for His son Jesus Christ; for the truth of who He truly is too—God incarnate. He made us part spirit in order for our spirits to be a conduit to His Holy Spirit, who is to lead us to Christ, if we desire to pay attention to His drawing us nearer to seek Him.
So I implore you to seek Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. And if you don't believe in Him or insist on living life your way rather than how God planned in advance for you to live, then consider this:
If a transgender person is "passable" there shouldn't be an issue, at least from a worldly perspective, because no one will know, and they sure as heck aren't going to announce the fact upon entering a bathroom.
If on the other hand they are not "passable" if a single occupancy 'unisex' restroom is available, then perhaps that's the one they should use. Otherwise if they insist on using multi-occupancy gender specific restrooms, they will continue to cause some 'real' men and women, and perhaps most young boys and girls to feel uncomfortable using the bathroom with someone who claims to share the same sex as they do, but actually appear that they do not.
At the end of the day be it Bruce Caitlyn Jenner or Chastity Chaz Bono, a transgender person is still biologically, genetically and by virtue of their chromosomes and DNA, a male or a female, respectively.
And as far as God is concern biblically, and apparently according to North Carolina's House Bill 2, they do not have the right to impose their false sexual identity on those who see them differently. This is not a matter of sex discrimination, it's a matter of both privacy, decency.and common sense.
So my suggestion is, if they aren't going to repent and accept the grace of God found only through faith in Jesus Christ, then they should try to marshal their resources and do everything within their power to become "passable" or risk being exposed for what sex or creature they truly are.
