Moral Controversies That Have No Right to Exist

Sexual sins: Gender sins and “Gay Pride”

 


Gender Sins

One of the most obvious and easily proven facts in the Scripture is that there are exactly two genders: male and female.

[The Bible specifies exactly two genders (male and female) and disproves any and all notions that gender is identified as a “personal feeling” or expression, that gender is fluid (fluctuates), that gender is not defined (non-binary) and that gender is a social construct.

Gender and sex are, therefore, equivalent descriptors for the exactly two genders.

Gender is a fact of biology. It is not subject to the whims of society; even the proponents of “gender fluidity” use the language “the gender assigned at birth” (since they have to begin their hellish argument with at least a semblance of reality). The idea that a person may simply declare their own “gender” at any time, in mutually contradictory ways depending on the day, or even time of the day, is nothing less than intellectual and moral insanity!

The rational mind instantly rebels against the idiotic gender notions multiplying at breakneck speed today.

The next chapter will handle transgenderism, the “feeling” that a person is the opposite gender from the way they were born, along with the extraordinary lengths to which he/she will go to "transition" to that gender.]

 

IMPORTANT NOTE ON INTERSEX:

In this subchapter I reject the addition of the group of individuals known as “intersex” with those identified by the idiotic proponents of the “gender fluidity” nonsense. The "gender fluid" and "gender-is-a-social-construct" crowd are truly grasping at straws when they lump intersex individuals into their flawed reasoning.

An intersex person is one who was born with differing external and/or internal genitalia due to a DNA replication anomaly. It is not based on how the person affected by the intersex phenomena "feels" about himself/herself. It is not based on gender dysphoria.

Intersex is frequently very confusing to the person, but certainly in no way should be regarded with any shame (though that seems to happen because of the sometimes-oftentimes relative cruelty of adolescents to each other). It may take years to be properly diagnosed if the anomalies are internal only, since it will require medical imaging (for which there must be a reason for a physician to prescribe, something often not realized).

Intersex is an identifiable physical condition as determined by appropriate medical exams. It is relatively rare (estimated to be 1% - 2% of the US population). There are medical procedures available should the person decide to transition to male or female as best suits their individual case (if they “need” to transition at all). There is abundant information on the internet that shows that the overwhelming majority of intersex individuals elect for surgery to confirm the gender which is right for them.

Again, intersex cases are not examples of the “gender fluid” nonsense so typical today. They do not belong in the same category. Intersex is a biological construct, not a social construct! (The proponents of “gender fluidity” lack medical and/or biological proof of their insane theory, so they use the “red herring” of intersex individuals in a futile attempt to bolster their gender confusion and obfuscation.)

It is interesting to note that while intersex individuals can be identified as such by a medical exam, there is no legitimate medical exam which can validate that a "male feels like and female", a "female feels like male", or that a person feels like something which is neither or both male and/or female.

 

The testimony of Scripture is simple and direct:

Gen 1:27
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Gen 5:2
He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created.

Mat 19:4
And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, …”

Mar 10:6
But from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female.

There is no room for ambiguity or any other understanding: our Creator teaches us that He created exactly two genders. Except in the case of birth defects in the genitalia or intersex births, the gender seen at birth is that person’s gender. Any discussion about “gender identity” is a manufactured construct ideally created by and suited for a generation of people who reject the LORD and His Word. As the Scripture says:

Rom 1.22
Professing to be wise, they became fools …

What could be more foolish than a male calling himself a female or a female calling herself a male!

[Here are a few representative links to demonstrate the spectacular foolishness of current discussions of “gender fluidity”:

63 GENDERS… NOW 81 GENDERS
“However, “gender” is a much broader array of attributes than most people realize. Through the practice and use of using both Yin and Yang energies, you can increase the power and flexibility of your magical workings.”
[Well, that was particularly instructive… #SARC]

How Many Genders Are There In 2021?
[This is a list of 112 genders!]

How Many Genders Are There — And Why Does Talking About the Spectrum Of Identity Matter So Much?
“There’s only one good answer to the question of how many genders there are: Gender is a spectrum, an umbrella term, and there are as many gender definitions as there needs to be for every person to have a label that lets them feel true to themselves.”
[So, let’s throw biology away in favor of “feelings” or the psychological need to "feel special".]

]

As I noted in this subchapter, the two divinely-designed genders were created to support human procreation:

Mat 19.3-5
Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?” And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh.

“One flesh” is the LORD’s expression for the sexual union by means of which offspring is produced (the pattern of the creation). It should go without saying that human offspring can be produced only from the union of the male sperm and the female egg; there is no other possibility.

There has never been a case in all of human history in which two human sperm by themselves produced human offspring; likewise, never have two human eggs by themselves produced human offspring.

The LORD’s “two-gender” design also carries into major portions of the animal world. This is evident in the preparation made during the Great Flood concerning which Noah was told:

Gen 6:19
And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.

Gen 7:2-3
You shall take with you of every clean animal by sevens, a male and his female; and of the animals that are not clean two, a male and his female; also of the birds of the sky, by sevens, male and female, to keep offspring alive on the face of all the earth.

Gen 7:9
there went into the ark to Noah by twos, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.

Gen 7:16
Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered as God had commanded him; and the Lord closed it behind him.

[In the animal kingdom, there is a classification “hermaphrodite” which is roughly equivalent to the intersex classification among humans; the former is estimated to be about 5% of the animal species while human intersex is estimated to be about 1% - 2% of the population. So, logically it is not possible to appeal to the animal kingdom to support the modern notion of “gender fluidity” (though proponents sometimes attempt to do so).]

It is worth asking “Why is there a controversy about gender at all? How is it even possible that some people would attempt to make the argument that a male can be a female and vice versa, or that a person can be neither or both male and/or female? Does this even make sense?”

The answer to this issue is found in Romans chapter 1.

[Please note: the presentation of the Scripture below is not intended to apply to intersex individuals. Their medical condition did not in any way depend on their cooperation or behavior (or sin!); they were born intersex because the LORD was pleased to bring this into their lives for His own purposes. To those who would object to this truth, please note that the LORD does not require either our understanding or our agreement regarding the working of His own will. (Eph 1.11)]

The section in Romans chapter 1 beginning with verse 24 details the sins to which the LORD “gave over” those people under His wrath. Who are the people under His wrath, and why are they afflicted in this way?

  • v18: They are unrighteous men who suppress the truth.
  • v19: They are willingly ignorant of the LORD and His law.
  • v20: They are without excuse.
  • v21: They do not honor the LORD.
  • v21: They are ungrateful.
  • v21: They are futile in their speculations. (Think “gender fluidity”!)
  • v21: They have a darkened, foolish heart.
  • v22: They profess to be wise but are really fools.
  • v23: They exchanges the glory of God for anything and everything inglorious and degrading.

As you read that portion of the Scriptures it is legitimate to see gender dysphoria as one of the many sins enumerated there, along with all other manner of sexual sins!

 


Gay Pride

This section could have been placed nearly anywhere in its parent chapter; I decided to place it here because so much of this hellish attitude is based on the gender sins.

[Homosexuality is the topic of another subchapter and not explicitly covered here.]

I won’t detail here everything that is included in the Gay Pride movement; I wouldn’t be able to do so. In the context of this article, Gay Pride is simply the embodiment of this spoken nearly 2000 years ago in the LORD’s book:

Rom 1.28-32
And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

The LORD placed the conscience into the heart of man at his creation; it was to be his moral guide, designed to direct/constrain his actions to those things which are pleasing to the LORD and away from those things which are contrary to His law. The classic text detailing this is:

Rom 2.14-16
For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.

Frequently, the conscience is typically able to afflict a person with grave moral discomfort, a sort of general moral feeling of impending doom and gloom. In fallen man, the “norm” is for man to frequently seek to ignore his conscience, because:

Jer 17.9
The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick;
Who can understand it?

Short of electing grace , though, the typical person responds to this by seeking the wretched solace of others similarly afflicted, something akin to the line in the play Doctor Fautus:
Solamen miseris socios habuisse doloris.
“it is a comfort to the wretched to have others to share their sorrow”

typically known as
“misery loves company”.

The unforgiven sinner seeks solace wherever he can find it, even when it is false! And what better place to commiserate than in the company of others in the same wretched state! Gay Pride is nothing more or less than the degenerate celebrating and encouraging their sin in the company of other degenerates. As the LORD said through his Apostle:

“they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”

Gay Pride is the modern-day fulfillment of this verse! The very people who hate the LORD and have nothing but disdain for His Law and warnings are the very ones who demonstrate thoroughly its truth! Rather than being filled with shame, they are “proud” – to their own eventual condemnation!

As the Scripture says: “The day will show it.” (1 Cor 3.13)

I revisit the text I cited above, this time to emphasize the last part:

Rom 2.14-16
For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.

There will be no Gay Pride on that Day! Instead, it will be Gay Shame — for eternity!

[At the time of this writing/editing, Vice President Kamala Harris was marching in the Gay Pride Parade in Washington D.C.! To borrow a phrase that Ben Shapiro so aptly named one of his videos, “The Fools Are In Charge | Ep. 1226”.]

Our nation is collapsing morally! This is indeed a very dark time for our country.
