  1. Thanks for sharing.

    The following quote is what stood out to me the most...

    "Mark my words, this law will not be used as some sort of 'shield' to defend vulnerable transsexuals, but rather as a weapon with which to bludgeon people of faith and free-thinking Canadians who refuse to deny truth," Fonseca argued."

    All these are but stepping stones to a society that is void of any good. God being good then must make this society godless and Jesus just another name. Lacking any power for it wouldn't be allowed to show His divinity as the Christ.

    With the love of Christ Jesus.

  2. I'm glad I know Jesus in these days we are living in.

    I of course share all of these articles not for the sake of fear, because in Christ we have nothing to fear.
    But just so we as the body of Christ can be aware, watchful, and alert.
    Wise as serpents and gentle as doves.

    Unfortunately I mourn because a lot of self-professing Christians are getting lost
    in this wave of gender, sexual, and women's rights.

    By this I mean
    Gender rights: The whole transgender revolution that breeds confusion about who we are, why we are, and how we were made.
    Sexual rights: The whole same sex attraction and redefinition of marriage and so called sexual liberation
    Women's rights: I'm not talking about equal treatment for Women or equal pay, etc. I'm speaking of the mislabeling of abortion,
    the act of taking a life as a "women's rights" issue. No abortion is not a "women's rights" issue. It is about taking the life of an unborn
    child. It is about a culture(not always but mostly) that wants to promote sexual freedom encouraging sex outside of marriage and indiscriminately,
    and when unplanned pregnancy happens because of the result of sinful behaviors, they want to have the unborn child pay the consequences
    with their life, instead of dealing with the consequence as adults.

  5. I dont know who started it but I think whoever invented the birth control pill will be judged severely.

    Abortion is not a new thing though..but the people that practice it will also be judged. Vengeance is mine, I will repay says the Lord.

    There are many lost children now in the world with no fathers, and now mothers. These orphans God asks us to look after.

    If you conceive a child, you and your partner are responsible. I really dont think killing your own baby is being responsible is it?!
    Men causing women to become prostitutes to satisfy their lust is a sad reality. When I was growing up every single man I knew treated women like a *****. I think sin has become so much worse after the 60s when it has been taught that men can just have any women he pleases cos they think with birth control there are no consequences.

  6. Media also promotes corrupt and perverse practices, if you look in the newstands, womens magazines like cosmopolitan basically show you how to seduce men and fornicate, while mens magazines just show porn.

  7. Nonsense is very much like confusion, isn't it?

    "For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." I Cor 14:33
  8. I think with gender identity being such an issue with the gay agenda theres now a lot of confused people out there.

    What does the bible tell us? For believers, our identity is in Christ.

    So when people claim they are gay, married, working class, female, whatever, they are thinking only in terms of flesh. A christian is a follower of Jesus and that subsumes any other category.

    Many people are confused about sex and gender now because many actually descend from a wicked and adulterous generation.

    But when we are born again, we are truly born again and become children of God.

  9. People don't know where to turn for help because too many who are called ministers or call themselves ministers, do not know God. They are among those to whom Jesus spoke here:

    "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matt 7:22-23

    Signs and wonders were seen in Egypt as manifested by Pharoah's magicians and wisemen in response to the Lord's work through Moses and Aaron. Similarly today too many manifest the same kind of falseness and unfortunately too many people are taken in by it.

    To receive the truth, God's truth, people need to really get hungry and thirsty for the right things. Don't ever be happy with what feels good or what sounds good. God will help us if we sincerely ask of Him:

    "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled." Matt 5:6

    "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
    For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." Matt 7:7-8

  10. Thank you for sharing @Jesus_is_LORD

    This decaying world is full of nonsense.

    Thank You Lord that we are so blessed to know You....that we are saved.
    Give us compassion to love and lead this world of dying souls who caught up in such nonsense that they may come to know You.

    Praise the Lord
    He reigns through the darkness

    The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
    Clouds and darkness are round about Him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of His throne.
    A fire goeth before Him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
    His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
    The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
    The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the people see His glory.
    Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.
    Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of Thy judgments, O LORD.

    For Thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: Thou art exalted far above all gods.
    Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of his saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
    Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
    Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.

  11. Amen praise the LORD indeed. He reigns supreme and is sovereign.
  12. Women react to drugs differently then men. There are some drugs you never want to give to a women, and there are some drugs you never want to give unto man. Somewhere down the line this non gender child will have to have a record showing what sex it is before drugs are administered.

  13. Well the forbidden fruit was the first drug. Eve thought it would make her wise, but she became foolish and so did adam.

  14. Very good point and I'm going to stay here for a little bit more.

    I think the trick that the enemy is trying to use is that different means deficient, and that is not the case.
    People have this notion that to admit difference means that something is bad.

    For example, even though racially there is not gene for race, we do have different ethnicities because of cultures and human pattern of behaviors.
    To acknowledge that someone is of an Asian culture or an African culture is not a bad thing. To acknowledge that someone is older in age is not
    a bad thing. To acknowledge that someone is a male or a female is not a bad thing.

    Now why do people feel this way. Well the fact is because in the past people have used differences to discriminate. People will say, I'm of this religion and you
    are not so I must hate you. Or I'm of this race(even though there is no gene for race) and you are not like me, so I'll treat you different. Or I'm a man and you are
    a woman so I'll treat you bad. So because in the past differences have been used as a metric for discriminating, people don't want to acknowledge the
    differences and rush towards "we are all the same".

    However, that is not true. We are not all the same. The truth is we all have the same value. Jesus died for everyone equally. Jesus loves all of his children
    equally. That is the truth, but that does not mean we are the same. People hesitate to acknowledge the difference because they automatically thing based on history
    that what immediately will follow is that you will expect them to act a certain way or use that as a basis to unfairly discriminate against them. Which is unfortunate.

    So are there certain ways that people should act because of these difference? Shouldn't parents expect a girl with a dress to sit differently than a boy with pants. Wouldn't it be ok for a boy playing football to tackle another boy by grabbing his chest, whereas if he was tackling a girl it would be inappropriate for him to grab her chest(breast) to tackle her?

    In terms of treating people directly, because we are different we should be treated differently. Obviously we should be treated fairly and loved equally, but there is
    nothing wrong with treating people differently if you understand where I'm going. For example as Curtis wonderfully pointed out in terms of medication. We are biologically
    different. This doesn't mean that one body is superior, just that we are different. Women may get pregnancy leave at work because their bodies are different and they
    give birth. Does that mean that men need to protest so they have get just as many medical days as women because it is unfair? I don't think so. Women vitamins may have
    certain ratios of nutrients compared to men because they are different. Women bathrooms are designed differently because woman go to the bathroom differently than men.
    But unless you acknowledge the difference you can't even do that. Vegetarians don't eat meat, so is asking someone if they are vegetarian a bad thing or acknowledging that so
    a school can prepare the right ratio of meals for their students a bad thing? Hispanics speak Spanish, is gathering that information so that a school can know how many
    Spanish tutors to hire a bad thing? No. But those who don't want to acknowledge any difference because "we are all the same" are not helping people.

    We are not all the same, which is what makes the human race wonderful. Women and men are not the same, which is what makes sex(in the confines of Marriage) a beautiful thing.
    It is also what makes God's love shine in a romantic relationship.

    I'll go even deeper. God designed Woman's bodies to be better suited to be in a supportive nurturing role to their families. Women's body chemistry allows them to carry more fat, this is
    helpful during pregnancy when the mother needs to feed the baby from her body nutrients as well. Women are hard wired to be more emotionally in tuned, which is there to balance out
    the logically goal driven men. Men are often task oriented and designed that way so that they can be good leaders(in the home). When leading you don't want too much emotions clouding
    your judgment. However the wife is there to help Him with her intuition and emotional focus to help point out things he might miss, and also be in tune with the emotional needs of her children. Where are the father is there to teach the values and offer discipline. He is less likely to be manipulated by a sad face when it is time to get a spanking or timeout (I understand men and women don't neatly fit into these categories). As a result of all of this, ideally ( I know many women will call men sexist if they say this) the family works best when the women is in the home because her gifts shine there. I could go on and on, but I'll stop here.

    The take away is we are different because God designed us that way, but we are all equal in God's eyes. Our difference make us beautiful and at times also serves a functional purpose in God's design.
    Similar to your left and right hand, they are different, but that is the beauty, their differences are made to compliment each other.
