Another male athlete competing against young women is annihilating the competition. Olympic gold medalist, Michael Phelps weighed in saying… Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce, also commented on the dilemma. You’re not going to believe what Jenner is saying.
A remnant of Christian pastors including John MacArthur recently said, “There is no such thing as transgender.” YouTube labeled his recent sermon “hate speech” and removed him from its platform.
We’ve been warning for years this would come to America.
We’ll address Lia Thomas and the swimming controversy in a minute.
Canada’s Bill (C-4) is broadly worded and would likely make certain Scriptures illegal and in effect, ban biblical teachings on sexual ethics. About 4,000 preachers spoke out recently, protesting the law from church pulpits, affirming their stance on God’s Word.
Liberty Coalition Canada warns that wording of the bill is broad enough to allow for “the criminal prosecution of Christians who would speak biblical truth into the lives of those in bondage to sexual sins like homosexuality and transgenderism.”
Since YouTube backs the Canadian law and affirms the Bible is hate speech, let’s look at some of what pastor John MacArthur said in the sermon:
“There is no such thing as transgender. You are either XX or XY, that’s it. God made man male and female (Genesis 1:27). That is determined genetically, that is physiology, that is science, that is reality.”
“On the one hand, the reality of that (transgender) lie and deception is so damaging, so destructive, so isolating, so corrupting that it needs to be confronted;
YouTube reportedly reviewed the sermon and said it violates their “hate speech policy.”
Thomas More Society special counsel, Jenna Ellis represented MacArthur when Los Angeles County tried to shut down Grace Church for defying pandemic-induced health orders. She rebuked the big tech giant for censoring MacArthur’s sermon.
“The big tech oligarchy in the United States is implementing the equivalent of Canada’s insane law by censoring truth and the right of pastors to teach the Bible,” Ellis told the conservative commentator. “If Americans don’t stop big tech, this new Regime will circumvent the Constitution to foreclose our fundamental rights to speak and exercise religion and the impact will be devastating.”
We’ve been relatively spoiled and free from religious persecution in North America. Not anymore. And please understand this will impact private conversations. It’s not just pastors and religious leaders who will face consequences of speaking biblical truth, individuals are already being suppressed, censored, and limited on many platforms.
We need to pay more attention to attacks on Christians and intolerance of the biblical worldview in other countries.
In Finland, for example, Päivi Räsänen (Pivey Rausenen), a Christian member of Parliament in Finland is currently on trial. She has been fighting for freedom of speech and religion in court because she posted a Bible passage on social media which condemns homosexuality. She was charged with three counts of hate speech.
But the transgender locomotive is steaming through culture and through every major institution in America including the hyper-secular university system.
Pennsylvania swimmer, Lia Thomas actually competed with the men’s team for three years. But last year joined the women’s team and has dominated all female competition. Just last weekend, Thomas obliterated swimming records previously held by female athletes, chalking up two more victories at a meet against Harvard.
It’s important for truth and clarity to breakdown recent comments by Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce. He said biological boys should not be playing in women’s sports. Most of us would agree.
But listen to what else he said and pay attention to the wording. He criticized this woke culture were living in right now and said it is not working. Again, agreed.
But he hypocritically reverts back to the delusion when discussing the unfair advantage men have when competing against women in sports. Jenner continued by referring to Thomas as she and her – which is part of the woke culture:
“I don’t know why she’s doing it; “She knows when she’s swimming, she’s beating the competition by two laps. She was born a biological boy. She was raised as a biological boy. Her cardiovascular system is bigger, her respiratory system is bigger, her hands are bigger, she can swim faster.
See the problem here? And if you state the obvious, the biblical truth, the scientific and physiological and biological reality, you will be penalized in today’s culture of confusion.
Naturally, Democrats, globalists, and those who are hostile toward the truth of Christ as well as those of us who believe it, are all in. Think I’m exaggerating? In the Nancy Pelosi-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, the so-called Equality Act I’ve warned about for years has already passed.
Elections have consequences, and if this piece of radical legislation passes in the Senate, Bible-believing Christians will face persecution most of us didn’t think would happen in our lifetimes. The left will gleefully criminalize an entire worldview to advance their godless agenda.
Pastor John MacArthur is also quoted as saying:
“This notion that you are something other than your biology is a cultural construct intended as an assault on God. The only way you can address it, honestly, is to say, ‘God made you and God made you exactly the way He wanted you to be.”
He emphasized the fact this is a war on God.Those professing another identity or gender are not only fighting God and His physical creation, they’re fighting His sovereignty.
Thankfully, more and more people are waking up, and I pray it’s not too late.
