“Times They Are A Changin” #1 Social Insanity
Times change and when they do the transition is often difficult to adjust to. We are in the midst of a transition time right now. We’re moving from what was to what is to come. Transition time from what we have known into the unknown. The more rapid the transition the more difficult it is to adjust to the new normal, especially if you have a few years on you.
From the US House of Representatives, with majority leader Nancy Pelosi, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion has commanded that gender-specific words become gender-neutral in all House documents. The changes mean that the rules for documents will use inclusive language which means words such as “mother, father, son, daughter, sister, brother” will now become “parent,” “child,” and “sibling.” The new rule will also replace “chairman” with “chair,” “seamen” with “seafarers,” and “himself” and “herself” with “themself.”
Genesis 1:27 (MSG)
God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God's nature. He created them male and female.
Revelation 7:9 (MSG)
I looked again. I saw a huge crowd, too huge to count. Everyone was there—all nations and tribes, all races and languages. And they were standing, dressed in white robes and waving palm branches, standing before the Throne and the Lamb
God "will give to each person according to what he has done."
What a person does or fails to do has consequences. Making everything equitable removes consequences. The doctor who invested in “themselves” to become a doctor should be paid the same as the person who found High School socially oppressive and because of lack of opportunity is now living on the streets with the disease of fentanyl addiction. That’s equitable. You may say that will never happen. What do you think Universal Income is all about? Universal Income is a government guarantee that everyone has enough money to provide for a decent standard of living. That sounds wonderful, no more poverty in America. I wonder who defines what a decent standard of living is? The way we are going to pay for this is that we tax the rich and give to the poor, effectively lowering the standard of living for the rich to raise the standard of living for the poor. I wonder who defines what income level is considered rich? I hope not the ones who can’t recognize the difference between the genetic male and female.
Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless.
Remember the former things, those of long ago…
We don’t have to look far to figure out why during this time of transition we are grappling with social insanity. Speaking of those who are out of sync with God, the Apostle Paul writes:
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools…
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.
Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
"When they drag you into their meeting places, or into police courts and before judges, don't worry about defending yourselves—what you'll say or how you'll say it. The right words will be there. The Holy Spirit will give you the right words when the time comes."
"Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they'll be won over to God's side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.
