Dazed and Confused? Hard questions they won’t answer.

These are some “hall of shame” dazed and confused issues:

1. The cornerstone argument of abortion-on-demand proponents is, “it’s my body, and I have sole right to determine what I do with my body?” Then you are saying there is only one body involved in the decision to terminate……..what? The “what” is the legitimate question. To help clarify, other legitimate questions are, can one body have two different blood types, or two different sets of fingerprints, or two different  heartbeats, or be two different sexes? And not only that, but who initiated those changes in your body after pregnancy?

2- But while the abortion-on-demand proponents claim the primacy of their own body, the transgender proponents claim their true gender is trapped in the wrong body. They are saying “it’s NOT my body. My body would be the sex (chromosomes, DNA) that I feel like I am.” But, I ask, what if you have the right body but the wrong mind? What if it’s your mind that’s messed up, rather than your body? Oops, too late for that question if you’ve already gone under the knife and been flooded with sex-change hormones!  

3- Starbucks training: One of the first videos criticized the concept of being “color-blind,” insisting that no one is able to ignore race. The proper concept to strive for, the video explained, is to be “color-brave,” a term the employee said was never specifically defined. The video made sure to underscore that racism and racial biases are deeply rooted in American history. Hmm, racism deeply rooted in American history. Is that why the racial sensitivity training was held only here, rather than in Japan, or China, or India, or all those other countries where there is no racism, and where Starbucks does business? I dare you to look up the history of racial bias in Japan, China, India.

4- Christians with homosexual/lesbian children: To really be a “christian” means you have been “born again.” What does that mean in practice? When your “heart of stone” is transformed to a “heart of flesh” through being imbued with the “spirit of Christ”, you are living “under grace” rather than living “under law.” That’s a lot of jargon, but what it should look like is an end to striving to be outwardly pleasing to God, because you now inwardly want to please God. Striving is living under law, being is living in grace. The “dazed and confused” aspects of this is, if you have to ask “does grace mean I can do whatever I want, even terrible things, and God will still forgive me?” then I question whether you even know what living under grace is. 

Some of the sins you used to be a slave to…..you will still indulge in, because those habits are wired into your nervous system. However, under grace you now hate those habits, and over time, as grace works it’s way into you (and those pesky neuronal pathways), those habits are replaced by what you love, more of God. Habits the Bible condemns, like sexual sin, start to weaken and fade under grace. Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6). Have you trained up your children? Are you now under grace but you don’t think your child is? Your child will be in God’s time; illicit desires will fade, desire to please God will triumph. In the meantime, pray, relax in the Lord, and love your child.
