So you think being gay is a sin? I have a challenge for you.

This post is a perfect example of why the pro-gay or “affirming theology” is so shallow. You cannot find a good social/psychology/biological/theological defense. Affirming theology is always heavy on the idea that if you simply knew someone who identified as gay, that you would change your mind. I know a lot of sinners, and I’m a practiced sinner myself. It’s shallow theology to say that to know a sinner means someone isn’t a sinner. It’s disappointing really that we can’t even find people who do a good job of defending their theology. People really only believe it because they WANT TO.

Word Made Fresh

We are six days into 2017 and the conversation that has dominated most of my social media in recent days centers around the sinfulness of LGBTQ people. For those who do not know, the presenting circumstance was a sermon preached by Kim Burrell, a Gospel singer and pastor, wherein she said that gay Christians in her church would die in 2017.

This is honestly a conversation I am tired of having, mostly because the conversation does nothing to change hearts and minds. No matter how many times you point out the inconsistency and incoherence of anti-LGBTQ theology, those who hold such views refuse to see it.

I am not writing this article to convince people about the holiness of human sexuality generally, including non-heterosexuality specifically, because that would do nothing to further the conversation. Instead, I am writing this to challenge all straight-identifying Christians who interpret non-heterosexual and non-cisgender (

Current Culture: Anything Women Can Do, Men Can Do Better

Genesis 1:27 — So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Time Magazine’s latest cover says “Beyond ‘He’ or ‘She’: The Changing Meaning of Gender and Sexuality”. Once again, an emperor without any clothing.

We live in a culture that has gone legitimately nuts. We live in a world where everyone is supposed to cheer the continued subjugation of women as men get cheered for dominating women’s sports.

Man wins female weightlifting competition.

Man wins female bike race.

Man wins female track meet.

Man competes in female track at Olympics.

Woman taking testosterone to “transition into man” wins against women not allowed to take said drugs.

Other ways our culture is saying men are better women than women are:

Man named “Woman of the Year”.

Man named latest “Cover Girl”.

And hey, don’t worry African-American community…you wanted to see more roles going to strong black women? Well here…we’ll give them to men pretending to be women, like on the new show Star.

Where are the true liberals? Where are the feminists? Why are so few standing up and saying that men don’t get to be women just by feeling they are so…or by chopping and reassembling body parts? Where are those standing up for the women and children being terrified by men (who aren’t even pretending to be women, mind you) in women’s bathrooms?

Read this blog about a woman who observed a man standing and just smuggly enjoying watching everyone inside the women’s restroom at DisneyLand. None of the women felt like they could do anything in protest.

Gender is fixed. Gender is immutable. Your feelings don’t determine your gender and neither does society. Both male and female are required for procreation and the continuing of the next generation. The emperor has no clothes. And the madness is terrifying.
