Wake Up World: Should Men Be Competing In Women’s Sports?

The obvious answer is no! An overwhelming no. However women’s athletics is facing a new threat, transgenderism. Secular Progressive, are obsessed with stating that gender is just a social construct, not rooted in biology. They have put sex and gender in separate categories, so that the sexes are malleable. One is what nature makes you, the other is what you choose for yourself.

None of this is rooted in objective thinking. It’s purely their desire to, I really don’t know. I know their linguistic arguments, but it is purely irrational. On the surface they are championing this because they can say, men can be women. But if they come and say that “trans women” can’t compete in women’s sports since they are biologically male; that hurts their claim, that men can be women.

Which reveals this for what it truly is, a bunch of mentally ill adults playing dress up. That is also part of the horrifically destructive sexual revolution.

The rest of society knows this to be true. But are too big of cowards to open the their mouth, because the LGBTQIA+ political lobby will come after you.

Even people who would fit into one of those alphabetic characteristics are under attack. Martina Navratilova, is a tennis legend, who happens to identify as a lesbian. Complained about this very thing, but of course the alphabet people came after her, for stating an obvious fact. Though previously, she was a champion of theirs! But, even if the LGBTQIA+ lobby likes you, you can not criticize any letter of the alphabet. If you do, they shun you and seek to destroy you.

Common sense must prevail. There is a reason that no matter where you go in history men have been the warriors and the ones who do the most physically demanding task, to build a society. My five year old nephew, can see this. But you mean to tell me adults, politicians, and sports league administrators and coaches can’t. Then we are supposed to accept this, otherwise we will be hurting this persons feelings? Ok. What about my feelings?

But since I’m a cisgender woman, my feelings don’t count.

The picture you’re looking at is of June Eastwood, from the University of Montana. June is a man, who has competed in NCAA D1 cross country for three years. He has never placed, won a medal, received any awards, or any type of national or league recognition for his college athletic skills.

But now,

His senior year, he decides to compete as woman, and he is being happily embraced. Though his personal best which doesn’t even put him in the pack in the men’s cross country; would smash the current women’s cross country record by 4 seconds! In track, that is a lot. When many races com down to milliseconds.

Then the University of Montana’s athletic director wants to play stupid. Saying that he isn’t sure if men have an athletic advantage over women.

What a liar. A bald face liar.

We all know that’s crap. But for these liars, here are some facts, not Human Rights Campaign approved talking points. Men are typically bigger than most women, taller, faster, more muscle mass, more hemoglobin in their blood, bigger hearts, bigger lungs, more fast twitch muscles, the advantage of narrow hips and broad shoulders, (women, because of our hips are more prone to knee injury) not to mention women have periods!

The differences between men and women isn’t just the presence of certain hormones, but even how our hormones are cycled.

But none of these facts matter, what does is people who rank high on the victim hood hierarchy’s feelings.

Now, what are we going to do. Let the feelings of mentally disturbed people rule society, because we are afraid of the Secular Progressives coming after us. Or are we going to speak up, and VOTE, like people who follow Christ should. But even if you’re not a Christian, you still should have common sense, and acknowledge this as wrong.

Being a woman isn’t a feeling or a costume it’s in your DNA!

Wake Up World!: Keep On Sinning…

One of the hallmark tenants of Christianity is forgiveness. Jesus teaches that when we follow him, that we are born again and forgiven for our sins. But in contemporary Christian culture, we seem to not understand that we are forgiven after we repent.

If a spouse says a cruel word to the other, than later approaches the other apologizes, and actually takes steps, such as walking away when angry and being more conscientious of their words. Then the apology/repentance is sincere. But let’s give the same problem, and than two days later they do it again, and again. Then they look at their spouse and say, listen, you know I can’t help myself so you’re going to have just deal with it and forgive me, because I’m not going to stop.

This is precisely how many so called Christians behave. They think that they can continue to do whatever they want, and God is just going to have to deal it. Jesus didn’t die to make you comfortable in sin, but save you from it. Romans 6:1-2 “ What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?” This needs to be read by more churches today. Like if my mortgage company gives me a grace period, that doesn’t mean that I don’t have to pay my bill. They are just giving me time to get it together so I can pay. But God, in the case of sin, is helping us get it together.

As long as we are breathing God’s grace never runs out. However, we are to repent and have a repentant heart. God is the judge, so he knows your heart. He know we won’t be perfect. But followers of Christ aren’t going keep doing the same things over and over and over, then say, “God knows I’m a mess, and I’m not going to stop.” There is no repentance. Repentance must precede forgiveness. 1 John 5:18 states this as well, that those born of God don’t keep on sinning.

Again, there is difference between a believer who is struggling with a sin, and is clinging to God for strength to overcome this issue. And they are repenting and working hard, seeking the Holy Spirit, and submitting to his instructions with a repentant heart. Compared to a person who says, I don’t care, I’m going to do what I want. In Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus plainly addresses these types of people.

With many churches shying away, from discussing sin, they are feeding this problem. We go to church, and the pastor is supposed to petition a God, to get a specific word to give his congregation. Sometimes, it’s going to be words of encouragement and some “self-help”. But, not every Sunday. Even those Sundays when God wants the pastor to give a word of encouragement, that also will include correcting people’s behavior. God isn’t the author of evil. And 99% of people except for like kids with cancer, have done something to cause their current problem. And is typically, something very specific God told us NOT to do.

But in 2019 America, the biggest issue is sexual sin, above all else. Even most professing Christians engage in unrepentant sexual sin. Those type of people, sorry folks, aren’t saved. They are following Satan. How can one get salvation if they refuse to repent? If sin is ok, then why did Jesus die? Being a Christian isn’t a title, it means you are a follower of Jesus Christ.

I say this out of love. Because so many are deceived. And the don’t judge wing of the church is helping Satan, and making people comfortable in sin. So they can keep doing it. When you follow Christ, the Holy Spirit will check you when you’re doing wrong, and you won’t feel comfortable. Some will actually suppress the Holy Spirit’s voice, so they can sin “comfortably“. Pastors who refuse to address the rampant sexual sin, and the don’t judge wing in many churches, are helping to suppress the voice of the Holy Spirit in people’s lives, and Satan is so proud.

From an Apologetic stand point, this just points to more evidence as to why Christianity makes sense. God is instructing us to be self-regulated, which maintains a peaceful and prosperous society. But, due to our fallen nature, he helps us achieve that, because we can’t do it on our own.

We as Christians must spread the Gospel, and to do that, we must speak about sin. There is difference between telling people to come as you are, and God will clean you up. Compared to do anything you want because God forgives you. It will cost people their souls, and there is nothing worse, than spending eternity separated from God.

Wake Up World! 08/21/19: Are You A Friend?

Lawlessness is when there is no restraint or restrictions. Where people just do anything, because it feels good and/or what they want to do.

Not society can sustain that.

But when we hear the word Lawlessness, we must be careful not to attach it to firmly to governmental laws. You also have natural laws, that are fixed to something beyond us. When they Bible speaks of the man of Lawlessness aka the Antichrist (2 Thessalonians 2), it’s not about breaking the laws of a nation, but rather the Laws of God.

We look at society and people seem to just want to indulge in themselves and every vice. Now this is nothing new. Human history, are just stories of struggle. Man vs. man/men, man vs. environment, man vs. himself. But the the most dangerous of all, are man vs. himself.

Why?

Because, no one can destroy us like us. When live in the age where are encouraged by society, to self destruct, on drugs, food, alcohol, sex, self-pity. When in previous years even though we had our own personal struggles, society encouraged dare I say it, decency. Now, we are encouraged to turn completely inward in our focus, and rebel against God. Humans now have to wrestles with a culture, that puts pressure on us to rebel. Even now schools are teaching sexual rebellion as part of its curriculum. It’s the antichrist spirit, that is running rampant in our society.

Of course, there is a sociological explication for all of this madness. As Christian Apologist, we trained for being able to speak to the historical and sociological causes behind this ire and rebellion against God. Lawlessness that is being forced down the throats of kids and adults.

But, we must not forget that this ultimately is a spiritual problem. You can have two people see and/or experience the same thing, yet have totally different perspectives. That is due to your worldview. How you view the world, will determine how you interpret information and your experiences.

The next question is what determines your worldview, and that is your spiritual condition. The antichrist spirit of lawlessness, brings spiritual corruption and hedonism. Which will source your worldview leading to materialism. But those who want the hedonism of materialism, yet still want want to acknowledge the spiritual world turn some sort of pantheism or witchcraft. Which all help Lawlessness spread throughout our society.

When we engage, support, or are entertained by lawlessness, you’re being a friend to the AntiChrist.

Wake Up World! 08/19/19: I Want Power!

Money, power, and sex are the three motivators for human evil and corruption. Those things in themselves aren’t inherently bad, and can be very good and beneficial depending on how we plan on acquiring these things, and what we plan to do with them once we do.

Example, say you have woman who is unhappy with the way things are going in her neighborhood she feels things are unsafe after a string violent crimes, so she decides to run for city council. She wants power, to improve the lives of others.

Or a excited woman who is a getting married and decides to swing by a specialty lingerie shop to look sexy for her husband on their wedding night. Or a young man who decides to start a string of restaurants so he can be finically successful and provide a nice and comfortable life for his family and create jobs.

These aforementioned examples of money, power and sex are positive and very beneficial to those individuals, their loved ones and/or society.

Yet we can think of countless examples of people acquiring and using power, money and sex and committing great acts of evil.

As Christians we know how to behave sexually, only in the confines of a marriage between one man and one woman. We know that money should be acquired in honorable way, free of deceit, violence, or theft, also that we are donate our first 10% to Lord’s house and the spread of the Gospel. Also in caring for the poor.

Yet, when it comes to power Christians get shy and nervous. We need Christians in power. Why? Because who is in power in any land determines how much freedom of and from citizens have. But as we can see now, we have an increasingly number of politicians who are hostile to the Christian faith. They hate that we don’t support sex outside of marriage, homosexual sex, transgender ideology and the fact that we don’t support abortion and our belief in the exclusivity of Christ. These are the reasons in America, Christianity is despised by the culture at large. So they continue to push to marginalize Christians from the public square. Use the government to suppress our speech even in California asking it illegal for pastors to homosexuality is a sin. Saying it’s causing emotional harm to the LGBT community. The entertainment industry is trying to America the next Sodom and Gomorrah, and if you raise any objections they fight shame you as aggressively as those men fought to rape those angels in Lot’s house.

Now if there were more Christians as elected officials would this type of insanity occur? No. But this separatist attitude, that this is just the world being the world, is a weak excuse. Many are apathetic, some are afraid, some are politically ignorant. But history has taught us, that when evil people are in power, the citizens under their rule suffer.

This is why politics cause so much conflict, as you can see from the picture above. We all want the people who think like us to be in power, so our interest are protected. But imagine, if people who wanted to be Christlike were in power. If the people in power have a heart after God, this nation would drastically improve.

The fight is never over until the return of Our Lord. In the meantime we are to occupy until he comes, and spread The Gospel, and work to make sure that the righteous are in authority. Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.”

‭‭So either we get in the fight, or become prey for Satan’s followers.

Anxeity….and what to do.

Image Source: ABC Go

Many of us have struggles with anxiety. It’s a weight on you that won’t cease. Being a divorced single parent, anxeity had become part and parcel of my life. Depression which is anxeity cousin, seeps in to the wounds that anxiety has created, and just sits there. I remeber one night driving home, my kids were just in the back seat being children, and I just felt so overwhelmed with the feelings of failure and uncertainy, that I began to struggle to breath. It was as though my lungs were constricting, and my heart was beating too fast. I began to think am I having a heart attack, will my kids watch their mother die. As I began to realize, that I wasn’t dying at the moment, I began thinking will I die in my sleep. As bizzare as these string of thoughts may sound, I had just experienced a panic attack.

Millions of Americans for a myriad reason struggle with chronic stress, that leads to anxeity and depression, which then snowballs into physical illness. Chronic migraines, highblood pressure, heart attacks, cancer digestive problems, and more. Which snowballs futher. Chronic anxeity, impedes on our overall quality of life. Though anxeity and depression is nothing new, one thing is fo sure, the pervasiveness of it is worse. People feel hopeless, alone, empty, but why? We lack relationship/faith in God.

Even myself a Christian, in my head I believed in God, but what about in my heart? Did I genuinely devote myself to him in away, that even when everything around me seemed to be sheer chaos, a steady peace and faith remained? The answer, no.

We live in a very busy world, with lots of expectations, and temptation. A society though it claims to believe in God, still mostly Christian but we don’t live like it. We live as though, pleasure is the ultimate sorce of hapiness. That is why so many people get so volitale when we criticize one of their avenues of pleasure. Whether or not the criticism is valid is irrelevant, it’s like taking a kids lovee. It’s taking away their source of hapiness, what makes life worth living. Whether that pleasure that creates hapiness is material things, money, sex, partying, alcohol, drugs, entertainemt etc. For many Americans, those aformentioned pleasures are simply living the dream. Minus the drugs those things aren’t sinful, some become sinful when we take them out of God’s purpose for them. But, in our society we no longer want God. We want the pleasure sepearated from God, so we can acheive how we want it, when we want it.

But it comes with a price.

It’s like the concept of selling you’re soul to the devil, some day you pay. We have not literally sold our soul, but forsaken genuine relationship with God, for a shell we created ourself that resmebles a genie. So, we can have our sin and a god too. But just like the deaf, dumb and blind gods of the pagans, they are nothing. So we are out in the cold world, feeling alone. But we aren’t alone.

God is there, but do we trust him? Trusting him requires our obedience, but many people don’t want to. Because it requires them forsaking the god’s of this age. So we remain misreable and confused. Many of these things we cling to for a source of hapiness, have terrible consequences when we use them outside of God’s design; and cannot comfort you when tragedy or the difficulties of life strike.

Joy comes from relationship, with the One who created you, knowing you better than you know yourself. God understands better than we ever could what is best for us, and it’s an awesome feeling to know that the One behind it all, “got my back”. Who can beat God??? NO ONE!! So when we listen to the instructions God gives us, not what you think, but what he communicates to us through Scripture, and directly, the anxeity subsides. It must be through concientous prayer, scripture study and obedience, and then the weight of anxiety subsides. It subsides because you know, even in the face of adversity, The Great I AM, has our back, and in the end, has it all figured out.

So don’t worry, though it’s easy to do, remember who is looking out for you! “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
