We do not know much about the author of the following quote but we do like what he says in those two paragraphs we are about to place on this board. The words come from the following link
When many people raised concerns that sexual deviants would take advantage of “choose your own bathroom” policies, and when those concerns proved to be perfectly justified, why did so many on the Left scream about conservative hysteria instead of seriously addressing the question of how to legally distinguish between fake transgender and real transgender?
They did so because they know full well that the main thing a sexual predator claiming to be a transgender woman has in common with a man who has “transitioned” to female is that neither one is what he says he is. The only difference between them is that the former is pretending out of malice and the latter is pretending out of brokenness. But acknowledging this might have resulted in changing their positions, and changing their positions would have required them to stop saying the magic words they didn’t believe
The people who support LGBT issues do not look at the full picture involved in their agenda. They are only concerned with rebelling against God’s standard of right and wrong. They can argue and say that we are wrong but that is exactly what it is– rebellion against God and his ways.
Their words and actions tell the believer that the LGBT alternatives are not of God and that God has nothing to do with them, their agenda is purely of evil which is using these deceptions to destroy God’s creation. I believe it is the ancient Chinese book The Art of War that states ‘know your enemy’ and for the believer God tells us who our enemy is
Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
And we need to keep this information in mind as we oppose the sinful rebellion that has taken root in many countries of the world. Our enemy is not the human who is being deceived, for they need to be set free from sin like we have been set free.Our enemy is a spiritual force that has hatred at its core and foundation, Fortunately, God does not just leave us vulnerable to this enemy but provides instructions to us on how to combat it.
Eph 6:13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Eph 6:14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
Eph 6:15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
Eph 6:16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Eph 6:17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Eph 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
God does not ant us encountering evil with our own strategies, our own efforts but has provided us with the tools and weapons needed to defeat the enemy, even in this LGBT issue. Read those instructions carefully because you need to grasp their full meaning correctly. For example, the belt of truth.- this does not mean that we go with what we think is the truth but make sure we have the actual truth.
To defeat these rebellions we do not go out with the attitude ‘we are doing this to please God’ and leave God out of the battle. No, we have to bring God into the fray and follow his lead. He alone has the power to make the changes we seek. The fact that evil is seeking to destroy whomever it can tells us why we need to pray for our leaders. Evil uses people to lobby and tempt them thus they need spiritual protection just like believers do.
This means that we do not go out and pray that Trump does not get elected president; instead we pray that if he gets elected, God will guide his leadership , his decisions and keep the enemy away from using him to hurt the nation and believers.’ Trump is not the enemy, he is a man like many of us and he is a man who is as vulnerable to evil’s tactics just like anyone else.
We are fighting a spiritual war thus it is spiritual weapons and strategies that are needed to stop the spiritual enemy from having its destructive ways upon other people. Keep the right perspective in the LGBT issue and learn who your real enemy is so you know the right weapons, tools and strategies to implement in order to stop evil from getting worse.
Knowing your enemy helps you to know what to do and where to get your ammunition to defend what is right and protect the innocent. Remember the innocent includes more than just the unborn child. The word innocent as used in the Bible includes people of all ages and genders and they all deserve our protection. The believer fights God’s way for that is the only way for the believer to conquer their enemy.
Use God’s tools and see the difference they make in your struggles outside of the LGBT issue. Believers are to follow God and if we do not then we cannot blame God for our failures or troubles. We can only blame ourselves. Even in your encounters with fellow believers, make sure it is really evil behind their words and action so you know how to handle the problem correctly without stumbling in your faith.We do not seek to divide the church with false accusations and bad responses to what has been done to us.
We return good for evil because returning evil means we are not using God’s ways but his enemy’s methods and the latter ruins a church not builds it up.
