The Gender-Neutral Movement: What Does The Bible Say?

Man, oh man.

Sorry, was that a gender-biased way to start this column?

Oh boy.

Well, I just did it again.

Is there anything inherently wrong with saying something that uses a word for one gender but not another? It seems pretty silly, really, but that’s essentially what started the misnomered “feminism.” It all began back in the 1970s when common sense ideas got out of hand. The real message was and is that somehow men and women aren’t really meant to play out the gender roles that our Creator established for us.

The feminist movement laid the foundation for every other gender-based “civil rights” movement that has come since, including all of the current issues about LGBT rights, same-sex marriage, and even small fringe (so far) movements to legalize polygamy or ban marriage altogether.

Earlier this month the editor-in-chief of the Kentucky Kernel urged the University of Kentucky to change all campus bathrooms into gender-neutral facilities. We’re all grown-ups, his argument essentially went, so having a bowel movement in the same room as someone of the opposite sex isn’t a big deal.

This misguided gentleman isn’t alone voice. He’s the latest echo of a growing movement to require gender-neutral bathrooms in every public space (and some private one). New York is considering legislation that would require businesses to offer gender-neutral bathrooms. If you live in Seattle, you may know that all public single-stall bathrooms must now be gender neutral.

And the University of Tennessee’s Pride Center is urging all students to stop using pronouns such as “his” and “her.” Instead, we are to use “ze.”

So are these changes bad? Should we all just “grow up” and get over it?

What does God say about it? Well, one of the first things He said about anything at all was this: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). He then called His creation “very good.”

On the gender-neutral (or all-gender) bathroom situation, most of them apply only to single-stall bathrooms. That means only one person can be in them at a time anyway, like a port-a-potty. That’s not really a big deal.

This, though, is the problem: These individual incidents and issues in and of themselves really are a little trivial. However, taken as a whole the big picture is clear: Gender roles are being diminished and eliminated, slowly and steadily. That’s why Franklin Graham came out against Target dropping its grouping of toys by gender. Quoting Matthew 19:4, Graham quoted Jesus, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female.”

It’s not about girls playing with trucks. It’s about the order set up by God when He created the world and how He intended us to manage it until Jesus returns. Men and women were created different and are different. God made us male and female, and, to quote the Bible, it was “very good.”

This is the stickiest of subjects in our modern times, but we each must decide whether the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God or not. If so, then two set genders are clearly established.

Gender neutrality is definitely and clearly in opposition to a biblical worldview. These small steps are part of a very large and slippery slope that we are already sliding down. We can’t get caught up in the trees, or we’ll be forever lost in the forest.

The Gender-Neutral Absurdity

December 12 2016, 12:24 PM 

Perhaps women should never have been given the right to vote! Women have been turned into such bleeding hearts. Satan uses the weaknesses of women to get a foot in the door. Thank The Lord he created men to balance woman's emotionalism. Now we need more men to put aside the feminine arts, and start thinking with the rational logical side.

Women in the bible whom satan used

December 12 2016, 12:39 PM 

This is an excerpt from the following link:


http://www.piney.com/FathAphrahatDemon.html#3

§3. For it was through Eve that he came in upon Adam, 49 and Adam was enticed because of his inexperience.

See Testament of Judah Judah was tempted by his own daughter in law and therefore PAWNED the scepter of his rule. It was Judah who sold Joseph into Egyptian bondage.

And again he came in against Joseph through his master's wife, 50 but Joseph was acquainted with his craftiness and would not afford him a hearing.
Through a woman he fought with Samson, 51 until he took away his Nazariteship.

Reuben was the first-born of all his brethren, and through his father's wife, 52 (the adversary) cast a blemish upon him.

Aaron was the great high-priest of the house of Israel, and through Miriam 53 his sister he envied Moses.
See Miriam whose name means bitter and rebellious. She was probably a prophetess of Hathor.
Moses was sent to deliver the people from Egypt, and took with him the woman who advised him to shameful acts, 54 and the Lord met with Moses, and desired to slay him, till he sent back his wife to Midian.

David was victorious in all his battles, yet through means of a daughter of Eve 55 there was found a blemish in him.

"Before the establishment of the kingdom under Saul, it was the women who, as in every young civilization, played a major part in the performance of music. Such figures as Miriam, Deborah, Jephthah's daughter, and the women hailing the young hero David have become almost archetypes of female musicians.

"Characteristic of all these cases is the familiar picture of a female chorus, dancing and singing, accompanied by frenzied drum-beating.
This is the scene known to the entire Near East, and not
"even the severe rule of Islam could wholly suppress this age-old practice." (Int Dict of the Bible, Music, p. 457).
Amnon was beautiful and fair in countenance, yet (the adversary) took him captive by desire for his sister, 56 and Absalom slew him on account of the humbling of Tamar.
Solomon was greater than all the kings of the earth, yet in the days of his old age his wives led his heart astray. 57
"Women and girls from the different ranks of society were proud to enter the service of the gods as singers and musicians. The understanding of this service was universal: these singers constituted the 'harem of the gods'." (Music & Wiorship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity )

But when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal of the house of Judah (Grandchildren). 2 Chronicles 22:10
She missed one grandson and when they proclaimed him King they effectively sounded the musical censure against her and killed her.

Through Jezebel, daughter of Ethbaal, the wickedness of Ahab was increased, 58 and he became altogether a heathen.
See a counter defense of Deborah as model of church leader.

Furthermore, the adversary tempted Job through his children and his possessions, 59 and when he could not prevail over him, he went and brought against him his armour, and he came, bringing with him a daughter of Eve, who had caused Adam to sink, and through her mouth he said to Job, her righteous husband:-Curse God. 60 But Job rejected her counsel.

King Asa also conquered the Accursed-of-life, when he wished to come in against him, through his mother. 61 For Asa knew his craftiness and removed his mother from her high estate, and cut in pieces her idol and cast it down.

John was greater than all the prophets, yet Herod slew him because of the dancing of a daughter of Eve. 62

Haman was wealthy and third in honour from the King, yet his wife counselled him to destroy the Jews. 63

Zimri was head of the tribe of Simeon, yet Cozbi, daughter of the chiefs of Midian, overthrew him, and because of one woman twenty-four thousand of Israel fell in one day. 64

H3576 kâzab kaw-zab' A primitive root; to lie (that is, deceive), literally or figuratively:—fail, (be found a, make a) liar, lie, lying, be in vain
H2174 zimrıy zim-ree' From H2167 ; musical; Zimri, the name of five Israelites, and of an Arabian tribe:—Zimri.
H2167 zâmar zaw-mar' A primitive root (perhaps identical with H2168 through the idea of striking with the fingers); properly to touch the strings or parts of a musical instrument, that is, play upon it; to make music, accompanied by the voice; hence to celebrate in song and music:—give praise, sing forth praises, psalms.

Re: Women in the bible whom satan used

Being feminine does not mean effeminate: Many to most men and women have fled from the effeminate pulpit, musicians and "worship service" defined as the hypocritic arts and crafts.

You will NOT be able to buy or sell at any of the "show and tell" meetings in once-Christian universities.

Only the high priest was permitted to raise his upturned PALMS above his shoulders in the holy places. Comedians have taken care not to be identified as gay troubadours in the comedy clubs by keeping their ARMS from floating above their heads.

Highland church as the mother of most discord has a lesbian teacher who has appeared on the stage with that strange preacher.

Here is why so many have FLED from the Pulpit Persona many led by godly women who know a THING when they see or hear one,.

Re: The Gender-Neutral Movement

Rancor,

You simply copied an article written by Wally Peterson without a narrative or premise of your own. You said it's a good article and comments are welcomed.

In essence, is appears as though Peterson submitted his article to create this thread, and I published it. And you wanted us to discuss Peterson's article?

It would have been the preferred way if you had given at least a brief narrative or premise or statement upon which we can continue with the discussion ... and had quoted Peterson's article to support your narrative. Can we really expect Peterson to engage in the discussion of his article?

Perhaps, you can explain to us what you'd like to accomplish?

Thanks for the image, Rancor. It illustrates your premise ... I think. happy.gif

Apostate theologians: Thou art the man ?

December 15 2016, 7:24 PM 

True Christian principles in spite of commercial religionism has been the foundation of morality or "goodness." "When a free nation ceases to be good it will cease to be free" said someone. So, why not attack the self-proclaimed Trend Setters or Thought Leaders as the seed of the FRUITS. Paul affirmed that sexual confusion is the product of the worship at Mount Sinai (Romans 1). This is affirmed by many Old Testament accounts, The Book of Enoch and The Book of Jude who marked them as foreordained and described as an example or PATTERN.

1Cor. 10:6 Now these things were our examples [PATTERN], to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1Cor. 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to PLAY.


God breathed into the Prophets with the Spirit (breath) of CHRIST. The prophets defined the future REST which would be brought by Messiah and which was available in a limited sense to the godly people who never went to the Temple to hold "worship services."

Is. 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,
Is. 3:2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,
Is. 3:3 The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer [, and the eloquent orator.
Is. 3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.
Is. 3:5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.
Is. 3:6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand:
Is. 3:7 In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.

I knew D.B.Cooper: one of our elders in Seattle was a suspect. He did embezzle bundles from his company and the church had to keep him out of prison. The elders later stole the church for the instrumental sect taking my second "investment with the lord" with them. They sent the group to Nashville--a city set on seven hills with its own Parthenon--and the ZOE group to learn how to infiltrate, divert and musicate.

Temple Robbers are infinitely worse than airplane kidnappers: their parachute HAS failed and they have landed on the pointy tip of a Western Red Cedar.

Roger Chambers: The Sissification of the Church

December 17 2016, 11:02 AM 

The pulpit and pseudo "worship service" is not gender neutral.

http://www.piney.com/ChRogerChambers.html

Few local congregations attract what natural male leadership is available; true masculinity cannot stomach the saccharin unreality that oozes from the pulpit and glows in the assembly. preachers by the hundreds are hanging out their shingle to offer pseudo-biblical treatment based on those very assumptions.

The preaching of the therapeutic Christ is so intense in some congregations that members are made outsiders and oddballs by failing to be blessed with dramatic personal problems.

This web site is not part of or approved by any Church!

...........................THE BOOK

What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?


There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site; http://www.concernedmembers.com/madison

Here is the list of players;

5 Godly Elders
10 Not so Godly Elders
120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
