Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Gender Non-Discrimination

BibleCharlotte, North Carolina, a city with which I have some ties, just voted to approve a non-discrimination bill. This bill will allow people who are confused about their gender to use whichever restrooms they feel their gender is on any given day. This perversion is going on across America.

I want to get to the root of the problems we are having in these legal battles. I am not a lawyer, and I don’t have any background in studying the law, but I have noticed some changing trends. Now we have a new standard which courts are debating. Our government is passing immoral laws and our judges are legislating from the bench.

They are getting way with this because Christians have failed to be the salt an light and to stand for righteousness. Christians have been unfaithful in their Christian responsibility to be involved in the political process in our nation. They have not been going to the voting booth and putting in God fearing people. Because we have bought into the lie that pastors shouldn’t preach about political things and that Christians shouldn’t be involved in political issues, Christians have become cowards.

The problems we are facing are do to our removing God, His morality, and His standard of righteousness from the public square. These things used to guide this country. The precepts of God’s Word used to be the moral compass for America. It was our commitment to God’s principles that made this a great nation.

Starting in the 60’s and 70’s we took the Bible out of government by allowing the courts to redefine the First Amendment. The First Amendment restricts the government’s intrusion into religion, but it does not restrict religion’s intrusion into government. Our founders said that without religious convictions to control the people our system of government would not work. We are now being told that the church and religion has no business in the affairs of the state.

When this happened we lost our moral compass. Our moral compass has been replaced with an ideology called equality. This ideology says that there should be no restriction on our practice because all beliefs and all lifestyles are equal. The result is the chaos we see in America today.

Let me give you an example. The Bible makes it both men and women are equal in value. However, there are many areas where men and women are not equal. It is very clear that women do not possess the same physical strength as men. This is why we have women’s sports and men’s sports. The  point is that men and women have some very clear differences. All things are not equal.

Back when I was in school the girls seemed to be smarter than us guys. Us guys were too interested in goofing off and the girls made better grades. Women have proven to have equal ability in the business world and in many areas of the workforce.

God has gifted women with certain things that men don’t have. The woman is more qualified for the day to day raising of children than men are. Don’t get mad because I said this, there are centuries of data to prove this point. I am just pointing out that there are differences and everyone is not equal in every area.

If  one gender applies itself, it can do pretty much anything the other can do but not always as easily. The fact is that God has gifted each gender gifts for different roles. We could go through a whole list of differences, but it would accomplish nothing to do so.

I sometimes jokingly say that I was once trapped in a woman’s body, but then I was born.

Did you know that the chromosomes cannot be changed no matter what they do to change the physical appearance or by giving hormones. A male will always have an xy chromosome and a female will always have an xx chromosome. Even those who are borne with out the genitalia of a male or a female will have either an xy or an xx chromosome. They cannot be changed. God created male and female.

The results are silly laws based upon the equality standard. This is what happens when you remove God from the equation. We can expect to see more and more laws that are anti-God and violate His righteous precepts.

We have already made a law that says a man can marry a man and a woman a woman. Before long we will see the legalization of polygamy. This will open the door for the polygamous marriages of Islam.

In Islam one man can marry up to 4 women. This doctrine of equality will say that a woman will be able to have up to 4 husbands. How do you think this will sit with Muslims?

Let’s look at what the Bible has to say on this subject. When people turn their backs on God, He gives them up to a reprobate mind. Starting in Romans 1:19 we see what happens when man rebels against God.

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. (Romans 1:19)

Notice that that which may be know of God is manifest in everyone. God has given us a conscience that tells us there is a God. This is why all cultures, no matter how primitive or advanced, has the concept of some kind of a god.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. (Romans 1:21)

We see that when man knows God and down’t glorify Him as God, his vain imaginations darken his foolish heart. Are you starting to see the process? God has manifest Himself to every man, and then their hearts are darkened because of rebellion against God.

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; (Romans 1:25-28)

A reprobate mind is a mind that cannot make right decision, that is incapable of thinking correctly.

We are under the judgment of God for what we have done. When we turn away from God, He removes Himself from us. He judges us by leaving us to suffer the consequences of our rebellion. When this happens to a society it declines in to more lewdness and debauchery. We have descended to the point where we are making laws to allow this kind of thing, and making laws to criminalize those who stand for God’s righteous precepts.

God’s people need to stand up, speak up, and take this nation back. Will you join us at the corner of truth and courage?
