The closest the Bible comes to mentioning transgenderism is in its condemnations of homosexuality (Romans 1:18–32; 1 Corinthians 6:9–10) and transvestitism (Deuteronomy 22:5). The Greek word often translated “homosexual offenders” or “male prostitutes” in 1 Corinthians 6:9 literally means “effeminate men.” So, while the Bible does not directly mention transgenderism, when it mentions other instances of gender “confusion,” it clearly and explicitly identifies them as sin.
by ADMIN4 on JUNE 4, 2019 in FEATURED, PRESS RELEASE The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) and the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) applaud the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for issuing a proposed rule that restores the scientific definition of sex and moral conscience protections to healthcare.“Treating patients in accordance with gender identity, as opposed to their biological sex, could lead to tragic results,” said Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of ACPeds. “Health maintenance, disease presentation, and therapies can differ according to sex. These things do not vary according to peoples’ internal perceptions of their sex.”The previous administration’s HHS rule redefined sex discrimination to include both gender identity, which it defined as one’s internal sense of being “male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female,” and termination of pregnancy. This definition troubled many physicians.“We commend the HHS for proposing a revised rule consistent with both science and the First Amendment of the Constitution,” said Dr. Donna Harrison, executive director of AAPLOG. “This will allow physicians of conscience to practice evidence-based medicine consistent with the Hippocratic Oath.”Dr. Cretella originally made her point about treating patients based on biological sex in a joint letter and petition to HHS on December 4, 2018. As she explained now and then, sex does not and cannot change. An individual who identifies as transgender remains either a biological male or female. This objective biological fact has bearing upon their health even beyond sex-specific illnesses.Furthermore, when the previous administration redefined sex discrimination in relation to termination of pregnancy, it compelled physicians to violate the Hippocratic Oath, which forbids performing or referring for abortion.For laws and policies to safeguard the health of all Americans they must be based on biological facts; not on ideological falsehoods and at the expense of physician conscience. ACPeds and AAPLOG strongly support the common sense changes in this proposed rule. Source
‘Six year olds think that if you change your clothes, you change sex’
In a recent talk and subsequent Internet post, a professor of psychology disputed the idea that children can honestly determine their “gender identity”—whether or not they are a boy or a girl—at their earliest ages.
Katie Alcock, a psychology instructor at Lancaster University in Lancashire, England, recently gave a presentation on childhood gender identity that she then turned into a post on Medium. In that post, Alcock states that she is “very interested in how children learn about sex and about stereotypes.”
Noting that transgender activists routinely insist that children as young as three and four are capable of deciding whether or not they are a boy or a girl, Alcock states that research into children’s “developing knowledge of sex and gender” has been going on for decades. That research has revealed some telling consistencies, she writes:
[W]hen [boys and girls] see all the girls at nursery wearing pink and having long hair, well, that’s what girls do! And they also realise, from what people are saying, and from how their parents dress them, what toys they are given, and what toys other children who look like them (same clothes, same hair) what they are supposed to like and do based on what sex they are…
So, based on the idea that girls have long hair and boys have short hair, [a three-year-old boy] is also age-perfect in thinking that when appearance changes, sex changes too. Until the age of about 7 (yes, 7 — in some children it’s older) children think that when something changes its appearance, its underlying reality changes too. This doesn’t just apply to sex, it applies to pretty much everything.
This kind of generalization, Alcock notes, is generally “a very useful skill for a baby or child,” insofar as it allows them to make associations between things with which they’ve had prior experience, such as food or automobiles.
But though this generalizing can help kids figure out how to be associative, it also means that impressionable children are given to highly simplistic thoughts about sex:
By the time children are about 6 or 7 they are getting better at understanding that objects don’t change their real essence when they change their appearance but they still think that people change their sex when they change their appearance — this is known as sex (or gender, if you’re squeamish) constancy.
Alcock writes: “[S]ome children can understand that men have penises and women have vaginas, but still think that changing clothing makes a girl into a boy…In other words, to get to a mature understanding of sex constancy you need to understand what makes a boy and a girl, biologically, and also understand that the underlying essence of a thing isn’t dependent on its appearance.”
“[Young childrens’] version of the world, at their age, means that changing sex is totally possible,” Alcock writes.Source
It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.
The proliferation of ‘pep talk Christianity’ and the lack of expository Bible teaching in church today have done essentially two things.
Firstly, it has watered down the gospel message. As John MacArthur quipped, “Sin has become less offensive, heaven less appealing, hell less horrific and the gospel less urgent.” Christians have lost their ‘saltiness’ and have become incapable of preventing the world from falling into decay. As the saying goes, when the church loses its voice, the world loses its conscience.
Secondly, it has created an environment that enables false teachers to flourish. Again, this is part of the end times scenario that Jesus warned of in Matt 24:11, “…and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.” Consequently, the result of the mass deception is the great falling away.
