[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Thanks for the image, Rancor. It illustrates your premise ... I think.

This was the closing statement of the article by Peterson: Gender neutrality is definitely and clearly in opposition to a biblical worldview. These small steps are part of a very large and slippery slope that we are already sliding down.[/color]

Donnie, thanks for publishing the dog art.

Ken, I requested a fly over Murfeesboro. One can only image how North Boulevard would be today. Oh well.

Bye!

The Gender-Neutral Movement: What Does The Bible Say?

Man, oh man.

Sorry, was that a gender-biased way to start this column?

Oh boy.

Well, I just did it again.

Is there anything inherently wrong with saying something that uses a word for one gender but not another? It seems pretty silly, really, but that’s essentially what started the misnomered “feminism.” It all began back in the 1970s when common sense ideas got out of hand. The real message was and is that somehow men and women aren’t really meant to play out the gender roles that our Creator established for us.

The feminist movement laid the foundation for every other gender-based “civil rights” movement that has come since, including all of the current issues about LGBT rights, same-sex marriage, and even small fringe (so far) movements to legalize polygamy or ban marriage altogether.

Earlier this month the editor-in-chief of the Kentucky Kernel urged the University of Kentucky to change all campus bathrooms into gender-neutral facilities. We’re all grown-ups, his argument essentially went, so having a bowel movement in the same room as someone of the opposite sex isn’t a big deal.

This misguided gentleman isn’t alone voice. He’s the latest echo of a growing movement to require gender-neutral bathrooms in every public space (and some private one). New York is considering legislation that would require businesses to offer gender-neutral bathrooms. If you live in Seattle, you may know that all public single-stall bathrooms must now be gender neutral.

And the University of Tennessee’s Pride Center is urging all students to stop using pronouns such as “his” and “her.” Instead, we are to use “ze.”

So are these changes bad? Should we all just “grow up” and get over it?

What does God say about it? Well, one of the first things He said about anything at all was this: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). He then called His creation “very good.”

On the gender-neutral (or all-gender) bathroom situation, most of them apply only to single-stall bathrooms. That means only one person can be in them at a time anyway, like a port-a-potty. That’s not really a big deal.

This, though, is the problem: These individual incidents and issues in and of themselves really are a little trivial. However, taken as a whole the big picture is clear: Gender roles are being diminished and eliminated, slowly and steadily. That’s why Franklin Graham came out against Target dropping its grouping of toys by gender. Quoting Matthew 19:4, Graham quoted Jesus, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female.”

It’s not about girls playing with trucks. It’s about the order set up by God when He created the world and how He intended us to manage it until Jesus returns. Men and women were created different and are different. God made us male and female, and, to quote the Bible, it was “very good.”

This is the stickiest of subjects in our modern times, but we each must decide whether the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God or not. If so, then two set genders are clearly established.

Gender neutrality is definitely and clearly in opposition to a biblical worldview. These small steps are part of a very large and slippery slope that we are already sliding down. We can’t get caught up in the trees, or we’ll be forever lost in the forest.

True Christian principles in spite of commercial religionism has been the foundation of morality or "goodness." "When a free nation ceases to be good it will cease to be free" said someone. So, why not attack the self-proclaimed Trend Setters or Thought Leaders as the seed of the FRUITS. Paul affirmed that sexual confusion is the product of the worship at Mount Sinai (Romans 1). This is affirmed by many Old Testament accounts, The Book of Enoch and The Book of Jude who marked them as foreordained and described as an example or PATTERN.

1Cor. 10:6 Now these things were our examples [PATTERN], to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1Cor. 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to PLAY.


God breathed into the Prophets with the Spirit (breath) of CHRIST. The prophets defined the future REST which would be brought by Messiah and which was available in a limited sense to the godly people who never went to the Temple to hold "worship services."

Is. 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,
Is. 3:2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,
Is. 3:3 The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer [, and the eloquent orator.
Is. 3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.
Is. 3:5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.
Is. 3:6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand:
Is. 3:7 In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.

I knew D.B.Cooper: one of our elders in Seattle was a suspect. He did embezzle bundles from his company and the church had to keep him out of prison. The elders later stole the church for the instrumental sect taking my second "investment with the lord" with them. They sent the group to Nashville--a city set on seven hills with its own Parthenon--and the ZOE group to learn how to infiltrate, divert and musicate.

Temple Robbers are infinitely worse than airplane kidnappers: their parachute HAS failed and they have landed on the pointy tip of a Western Red Cedar.

Perhaps, the poster "Scripture" can tell us about "The Gender-Neutral Movement". Donnie, please, no more

excuses.

The pulpit and pseudo "worship service" is not gender neutral.

http://www.piney.com/ChRogerChambers.html

Few local congregations attract what natural male leadership is available; true masculinity cannot stomach the saccharin unreality that oozes from the pulpit and glows in the assembly. preachers by the hundreds are hanging out their shingle to offer pseudo-biblical treatment based on those very assumptions.

The preaching of the therapeutic Christ is so intense in some congregations that members are made outsiders and oddballs by failing to be blessed with dramatic personal problems.
