In the USA a CNN reporter named Cole made this statement which was taken seriously by the mainstream media outlet: “It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.”
For all of human history people of all cultures and races have relied on a very simple way of knowing the sex of a child at birth. Take a look between the legs and you know if the new born baby is a boy or a girl.
The US Democrats are proposing a law which will ban the use of terms showing the difference between sexes (father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister etc) in favour of gender neutral terms (parent, child, sibling etc) in official documents.
Margaret Harper McCarthy wrote about this:
In the UK, Relationships and Sex Education has become compulsory in schools and is being used as a tool to change the culture of Britain.
Judith Nemeth from the ‘Values Foundation’ warns us that we need to be alert to what schools are teaching children. She says that sex education lessons sexualise children from the age of four, encourage children go through a process of questioning their gender and teach them that homosexual activity is normal and healthy and equal to heterosexual relations.
We also have children’s fairy stories like Cinderella coming to Amazon Prime with a “LGBTQ sexless godmother,” played, unsurprisingly, by male homosexual Billy Porter.
The BBC is also plugging a new children’s book called My Daddies, the story of a motherless little girl adopted by two men, described as “the first picture book about two gay dads with both an LGBT author and illustrator.”
LGBT toys are also “all the rage”. Potato Head family sets feature gay and lesbian couples on the box.
Barbie wears “love wins” T-shirts along with her girlfriend. Lego has unveiled an LGBTQ-themed set called “Everyone Is Awesome.”
If you express objections to this, you are likely to be de-platformed (not allowed to speak at a public meeting), you may lose your job if you work in education, social services, the police or the media.
The Scottish Justice Committee has proposed a hate crime bill making ‘gender identity’ a ‘protected characteristic’. It intends to ban criticism of transgender ideology, with a potential two year prison term for anyone who transgresses this.
The established church for the most part goes along with it. Former Evangelical, Steve Chalke, has now become a vocal supporter for LGBT rights
and advocated prosecution by law for anyone preaching that homosexual practice is sinful in the eyes of God (Romans 1.18-32).
Stephen Cottrell, Archbishop of York, says that biblical teaching should submit to 21st century Western cultural beliefs and teach that homosexual practice is acceptable to God otherwise they will be ‘legitimising homophobia in others”.
Tim Dieppe of Christian Concern says:
In fact, we are on the way to a police state in which a vocal minority are able to impose their views on society and crush all opposition.
The problem is that their views are based on ‘the strong delusion’ that comes upon those who reject the truth and believe the lie, as prophesied in the passage from Thessalonians which I started this article with.
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
The way to escape the ‘strong delusion’ is to receive the truth, the message of the Gospel, that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead to give eternal life to all who believe in Him.
Jesus is the Saviour / Messiah who died for our sins to save us from the power of the evil one and to give us new life as we renew our minds by the Holy Spirit and the word of God. He rose again from the dead to give eternal life and forgiveness of sin to all who repent and believe the Gospel. Jesus told His disciples:
