“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
In the Genesis account of creation the first things that we read about our own race is that God created man in His own image, that He created us to take dominion over the earth, and that He created us as male and female. The distinct, complementary roles of man and woman are at the very foundation of what it means to be human and to live in accord with the divine will. From the beginning Satan has attacked humanity from every angle, and in recent years the attack on God-ordained gender roles have become quite fierce. The forces of evil are following what has by now become a familiar pattern: subvert secular society, then subvert the worldly, compromising churches, and finally subvert the conservative churches. This is the pattern that has been used to promote miscegenation and Cultural Marxism, and it is now being use to spread sodomy and transgender ideology.
The Church of England is the latest church to compromise on the transgender issue.
From the BBC:
“The Church of England’s governing body has voted to look into special services for transgender people.
Supporters of the services said the Church should offer a welcome to people to mark their transition…
The motion recognised the need for transgender people to be “welcomed and affirmed” in their parish church…
The Archbishop of York, the Most Reverend John Sentamu, said that “theology has to be done” by the House of Bishops, but “it can be done very quickly”.
During an earlier debate, the Bishop of Liverpool, the Right Reverend Paul Bayes, said: “As the world listens to us today, the world needs to hear us say that LGBTI orientation and identity is not a crime, not a sickness and not a sin.”
Meanwhile, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, said the Church would spend three years on a document outlining a new stance on sexuality.”
Christians are called by God to defend the truth in all areas of life. By failing to stand up to the false ideologies being promoted by the world, these so-called Christians are aiding the advance of the most despicable evil.
This is especially troubling given that transgenderism is now being aggressively pushed on children. The British government is already using taxpayer funds to convince children to accept gender reassignment, and now the British church can join the British state in this project.
From the Telegraph:
The number of children being referred to gender identity clinics has quadrupled in the past five years, figures show…
Figures from the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS), which is the NHS’s only facility for transgender children based at the Tavistock Centre in north London, show that 84 children aged between 3 and 7 were referred last year, compared to 20 in 2012/13.
The number of children referred to the service under the age of ten had also seen a four-fold increase, from 36 in 2012/13 to 165 last year…
Dr Polly Carmichael, a leading NHS psychologist and director of the GIDS, defended the teaching of transgender issues in schools.
She told The Sunday Telegraph: “It is good that schools are putting it on the agenda. It can never be negative if schools are being thoughtful and offering opportunities to discuss topical issues.”
She added that gender is a complex subject, and children should only be taught about it in schools in an “age appropriate” manner.
Children can only be referred to GIDS by their GP or by the child and adolescent mental health service.
After six months of psycho-social assessment by a clinician, an action plan would be drawn up, which could be continuing with counselling, or it could be a physical intervention.
Children who have started puberty, from around the age of 12, can be referred on to an endocrinology clinic which can prescribe a course of hormone blockers, which postpones puberty.
Children aged 16 and over could be given cross-sex hormones, which would enable them to take on the physical characteristics of the opposite sex.
I can confidently expect that there is a particularly unpleasant spot in hell for the “clinicians” who spend months trying to convince mentally ill and confused children that they are in need of genital mutilation and gender-bending medication.
Let us pray for these children who have fallen prey to the deranged social engineers who run our societies, and let us pray that Christian magistrates might be raised up to punish those who seek to erase God’s created order.
