Transgender movement showcases wickedness of America
If wickedness could be bottled, it would be labeled Transgender Movement.
Nothing else showcases the turn of America from God, and the resulting biblically-based judgments that befall nations that forget their Creator, than the current transgender fight, political response and cultural demise.
From Romans 1: “Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the degrading of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator …”
From Jeremiah 21: “Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will lay before this people stumbling blocks against which they shall stumble; fathers and sons together, neighbor and friend shall perish.”
From Psalm 81: “But my people did not listen to my voice; Israel would have none of me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels.”
Think America’s entered a phase of topsy-turvy beliefs, where what used to be right is now wrong – what used to be immoral is now moral? And those who dare say otherwise are now the intolerant, divisive or downright evil ones?
Well, that’s what happens when a nation that professes to walk in God’s path – that professes a government based on “self-evident” principles with rights “endowed by their Creator,” as in America’s roadmap of Declaration of Independence – but doesn’t actually walk that way. A mocked God turns His back, washes His hands of the people and lets them pursue their own lusts and stubborn desires, and then watches as those same stubborn lusts and desires prove to become snares for the people.
Voila. A Target store policy allowing men to enter women’s bathrooms and dressing rooms is born.
A federal Department of Education memo explaining that schools ought to regard transgender students by their gender of choice, not birth, becomes national policy.
A girl who thinks she’s a boy and sues her school board for discrimination because they barred her from the male bathrooms wins a Circuit Court’s OK.
The list goes on – and likely will continue to go on, and on, because America is in the throes of what biblical passages would suggest is a period of God’s judgment, when right becomes wrong, and evil is good and common sense is blocked, and His response is to just kind of sit back and let the chaos unfold.
Don’t buy into that? Well, look at our current pattern of common sense. Boys are boys, except when they’re girls, it seems.
Girls are girls, except when they’re feeling a bit on the masculine side.
And the snare – the confusion of the public, the floundering of our justice system, the vicious rhetoric that’s being hurled, the corruption of youth, the bullying of schools, to name a few – has been made all the worse when it’s considered how very simplistic the issue itself is: Birth sex is pretty much indisputable.
What a great time to be a Satanist in America.
The chaos this blinding of reality has brought about has been nothing but more chaos.
But there’s another biblical principle that aptly demonstrates this sad state of affairs, from Galatians 6: “Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” And America would do well to take heart in this thought: That passage doesn’t have to be a warning. It could just as easily be a promise. And it would be, if only God were allowed to lead.

I think the Obergefell ruling, ushering in gay marriage across the nation, was the last straw.
The moment where God says, OK America, that’s it. I’m done with you – you’ve mocked me one time too many – and now, I’m pronouncing judgement.
Look at Nineveh, the once majestic city that occupied lands now called Mosul, Iraq. Jonah predicted its fall, based on God’s word. So the Ninevites, every man, woman and child, repented and prayed and God, hearing from Heaven, took mercy and turned from His plans of destruction. But then came Nahum; turns out, Nineveh went back to its old, wicked ways, angering God once again to the point where He brought up annihilation by its enemies.
Well, what’s keeping America from similar fate?
Only the hand of God – and who knows how long that hand will stay.
Think of the country’s current crime statistics, divorce rate, sexually transmitted disease stats, economic instability, financial enslavement through debt to other countries, humiliating loss of AAA credit rating in recent times, abortion rates, morally bankrupt media culture, break-down of traditional marriage, and loss of logical mind on how to maintain gender-based public restrooms – and this, from Jeremiah 2: “I brought you into a bountiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land and made my heritage an abomination.”
Or this, from Galatians: “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
And this, again from Jeremiah: “Thou hast forsaken me, saith the Lord, thou art gone backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee, and destroy thee; I am weary of relenting.”
The Supreme Court ruling, from a heavenly perspective, ought not to be simply dismissed. Life may be moving on, the sun may be shining and commerce may be progressing as usual. But I suspect God has not simply shrugged His shoulders and accepted America’s misstep. And in that regard, it may very well be America’s best days are behind her.
