Deuteronomy 32:3-4 New King James Version (NKJV)
Without the Truth, what is justice? Without the Truth, how can we determine what is just? If the concept of justice — if the word justice — is to have any meaning, then we must know the Truth. Instead of each of us making our own Truth, the Truth must an objective reality, of God Himself.
Consider the crime of robbery. When a thief robs a man, and a man finds the one who robbed him, what must that man do to get his property back? He must be able to show that that property belongs to him in truth. Otherwise, the thief will proclaim that in his reality that property belongs to him, that he possesses it, therefore, that property is his.
Consider another example. What is a man? What is a woman? Why do Christians adamantly reject that social construct, “gender identity”, and insist that our sexual identity is determined biologically at conception? The concept of gender identity is a device designed to reject the truth. When he quotes Rod Dreher, this is the point Everett Piper makes.
“At the heart of these issues about sexuality and gender are some core principles about the relationship of the body to the metaphysical order, and what it means to be a human being … [If we] don’t recognize that, then [we] are confused about first principles. To give LGBT activists and progressive allies what they want — total affirmation — is to affirm that they are correct about the body, and about human nature. This is something that [I am not] willing to do. To be a Christian means that you believe, as the Bible teaches, that man is made in the image of God. This is at the root of human dignity. This necessarily means that human nature is given. It is not created by us; it is created by God and given to us. We either receive it or we don’t. As Christians, we cannot believe that we have permission to create ourselves in our own desired image.” (from here (washingtontimes.com))
What was the sin of Adam and Eve? Did they not want to be God? Didn’t they take that first bite of the forbidden fruit because they wanted to recreate themselves as gods? Are not our egos still that huge? Don’t we each wish we could stamp our own image upon all creation?
So what is the LGBT agenda? It is sinners trying justify themselves, trying to make what they want to believe “true”. It is just one more departure from Truth, the lie that sex is “love”, and “love” defines the truth of our sexual identity.
At its start proponents of the 60’s sexual revolution based their movement upon scientific propaganda. Don’t think so? Then consider the absurd propaganda the crony capitalist news media is peddling now, ‘Conservative Obama,’ pregnant men and other liberal media fantasies (washingtontimes.com) by Robert Knight.
What sets our current age apart from previous ones is not only technological wonders but the shocking abandonment of truth.
For Marxists, a lie is as good as truth if it works to advance their cause. A case in point was a recent nearly full-page article on the front page of The Washington Post’s Sunday Outlook section. Next to a large, serious portrait, the headline proclaimed: “Barack Obama: Conservative.” Sure. And Bernie Sanders is a moderate Republican.
Never mind that Mr. Obama was the most radically leftist president in U.S. history, with a background full of Communist mentors and connections. He appointed so many wackos to federal judgeships that our battered republic will be feeling the effects for years.
There is method to The Post’s madness. If you can make the case that Mr. Obama was actually something of a conservative, this pushes anyone to his right into the abyss of extremism. It doesn’t matter whether it’s true or not, only whether it succeeds in casting Republicans and even dwindling moderate Democrats as Nazis. (here (washingtontimes.com))
The notion that former President Barack Obama is a Conservative is too rich for Knight to avoid mentioning it, but he moves on in his column to point out the lies being told about the gender identity of human beings. He also points out that these lies are more than just philosophical issues.
This is child abuse on a massive scale. When an entire generation is taught that truth is subjective, and that the only god they should heed is their feelings, they’ll fall for anything. (here (washingtontimes.com))
When we cannot discern the difference between our desires and the Truth, we are blind. We cannot protect ourselves from our own impetuosity. Worse, when we refuse to know the Truth, we cannot repent of our sins and turn to God for salvation.
How did we get into this mess? We can trace the tale back to Adam and Eve, but the current generation has also failed. We failed to teach our children and grandchildren the Truth and about the God of the Truth. We did the easy thing. Instead of confronting the Truth about God so that we could help our children learn the Truth, we let politicians secularize the education of our children. We tried to hide from the Truth.
There is still time, at least for those of us who still live. We can repent, ask for the forgiveness of our Lord and beg for the salvation of our souls. We can also pity and pray for those blind souls who refuse to repent and persist in their lies. When they demand “justice” and threaten believers with “no peace”, we can remind them that without the Truth there can be no justice, that there is no peace.
