Woe to Those

This one is probably going to get me some hate mail, but it’s the truth, so I’m going to say it.

God created this world. He designed it to run a certain way, and with certain rules. And ever since Satan fell, both he and fallen man have looked for ways to change God’s rules at every possible opportunity.

That is how the same people can scream at you for being “anti-science” for doubting the claim that man is causing catastrophic climate changes, while at the same time rejecting basic biological facts which people have known for thousands of years (men are men, women are women, and unborn babies are alive).

The whole idea of transgenderism is, in a word, nonsense. A man is a man, as God created him to be a man, and he can be no other. Period. He can be a man, or he can be a man pretending to be a woman. But he’s still a man. Biologically there are a hundred different things in a man’s body that tell scientists that he is a man from his skeletal structure, to the structure of his brain, the amount of brown fat he has, all the way down to the chromosomes in almost every cell of his body.

There is a man on Jeopardy! right now that is wearing a dress, calling himself “Amy,” and insisting that people refer to him with the pronouns she/her. And it’s not just that he has created this fictional world for himself. Somehow these people have co-opted the media, major corporations, the government, and many people in this country to believe that if you refer to a man as a man, you are not only wrong, but you are being hateful. “Transphobic” is the word they use. This word, much like “homophobic” makes no sense linguistically, because it means “afraid of trans people,” which leaves no room for people like myself who are not afraid of any human, just in disagreement with the choices that they have made.

The word we should be using is “sin-cursed.” These people have been confused by the sin-cursed earth we live in, and their sin-cursed brains are telling them that up is down, black is white, and wrong is right. The Bible has something to say about this. Isaiah 5:20 says “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”. The word “woe” is used in the Bible to refer to those who stand in judgment by Almighty God. Isaiah used the word “woe” when he said in 6:5 “woe is me for I am ruined!” and he goes on to describe his sinfulness and the sinfulness of his people. In the New Testament the Lord Jesus Christ uses the word “woe” frequently to refer to the self-righteous Pharisees who rejected him, and therefore ended up going to hell for their sinfulness. He also used this word to refer to Judas Iscariot who the bible calls the “son of perdition” which means he was permanently lost, spiritually. And finally in the book of Revelation the word woe is used to refer to the final three trumpet judgments upon the world, which ends with most of the people on earth being destroyed.

Woe. Woe to those who call evil good. Woe to those who look at God’s standards and reject them, who say that what is morally wrong is right, and condemn those who stand up for the truth of God’s word.

Every time I see the world praise a homosexual or transgender person for being “brave” or for “coming out” I am reminded that God’s standards aren’t movable. He created the world and therefore He gets to say how we should live and act. To reject His standards is to invite woe on your life on this world, and in the next. I pray for those who reject the Lord, that their eyes will be opened and that they repent before it’s too late.

That they, like the people of Nineveh, would have said about them, “When God saw their deeds, that they turned from their wicked way, then God relented concerning the calamity which He had declared He would bring upon them. And He did not do it.
