THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR ACTIONS! by Earl Sutton

 

In 1996 a grain ship, “Bright Field,” was heading down the Mississippi River near New Orleans, when it lost control, veered toward the shore and crashed into a riverside shopping mall. The impact demolished parts of the wharf and injured 116 people. According to the Coast Guard investigation, the ship’s owner and crew had failed to repair long-standing engine problems. This is a clear example of not doing what you should do and receiving the consequences of bad decisions.

            The Devil deceived Eve into thinking that there would be no consequences for eating the forbidden fruit (Gen. 3:1-7). God said, “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, ye shall not eat of it lest ye die” (v.3) The Devil said, “Ye shall not surely die.” (v.4) Eve dilly-dallied with the temptation and contemplated the possibilities that the Devil had suggested and threw away all restrain and ate the fruit!  Why?  The Devil deceived her into thinking that there would be no consequences for sin.

            The Devil continues to lie to us today and tells our society that a little sin won’t hurt, a little indulgence is not a problem, a little transgression will never hurt anybody! The Devil tells us that we are only human and go ahead and enjoy sin. The Bible says, “The way of the transgressor is hard.” ( Prov. 13:15)

            Our society believes that it can live in disobedience to God’s will by practicing homosexuality and never suffer the consequences. The scriptures teach that there will be consequences for our actions. “Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth unto his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption: but he that soweth unto the spirit shall of the spirit reap eternal life.” (Gal. 6:7-8) This basic principle applies to the physical world and spiritual realm as well. The word, “mocked” is a Greek word (mukterizete:) which means to turn one’s nose up at God. The point is that if a person sows to the flesh (homosexuality and sinful living) and turns up his nose at God, he shall go the way of all flesh, -- die and face the judgment of God where there will be consequences. (reap destruction – Gal. 6:8)

The scriptures emphasize the consequences of sin in other verses. Ezekiel said, “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” (Ez. 18:4) Paul said, “The wages of sin is death.” (Rom. 6:23)  Over and over, again and again, the Bible under all circumstances, emphasizes that we reap what we sow and that sin is always followed by consequences.

            There is rebellion in the hearts and in the behavior of many people in our society today. In view of the fact that sin will always have consequences, what can we predict for the future? According to the basic law of sowing and reaping, the answer can best be given in the words of the prophet Hosea, “They sow the wind and they shall reap the whirlwind.” (Hos. 8:7) There is one time of sowing (while alive), and there will be two times of reaping. We reap in this life and also reap beyond this life in the hereafter. Sin brings forth its consequences both here and hereafter.

            People may do things without realizing the consequences of their actions, but one day there is going to be an accounting! (Rev. 21:8)                                                                                                                                                                                           

TRANSGENDERISM IS A MYTH by Earl Sutton

 

It is about time that science has stepped up and dropped a bombshell on the transgender myth. A former psychiatrist at John Hopkins Hospital has revealed the truth about the transgender myth that leftists are pushing in our society. Dr. McHugh unleashed some very compelling facts that, “It’s biologically false that one can change their sex.”

            The truth of the matter is “Transgender men do not become women nor do transgender women become men.” All that have sex changes become feminized men or masculinized women --  counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they identify.     

The idea that one’s sex is fluid and a matter open to choice runs counter to science and common sense. This nonsense has done much damage to families, adolescents, and our children without any biological foundation. Dr. McHugh added that we need to examine the real effects of these efforts to support transgenders which has had far-reaching consequences. If a person wants to know what sex they are, simply look down at their physical body.

It is amazing how such a tiny minority in our country, just three-tenths of one percent, has forced a national debate about whether the public bathroom they visit should or should not match the gender of their bodies. The false idea is being spread by the LGBT community that a person is bigoted if they believe that humans come in only two flavors -- male and female.

Dr. McHugh, who was psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital for 26 years that pioneered sex-change surgery and later ceased the practice, stressed that the idea that one’s sex is fluid and a matter of choice is extremely damaging to young people. He said those who wish to change their gender suffer from a psychiatric condition--  not an accident of birth. He further stated that gender dysphoria, the official psychiatric term for feeling oneself to be of the opposite sex, belongs in the family of disordered assumptions about the body, such as anorexia and body dysmorphic disorder.  Its treatment should not be directed at the body as with surgery and hormones.

The bottom line is that it’s not nice to fool mother nature. The truth is that the transgender movement is a part of the gay agenda to destroy God’s design for the family. This campaign is to confuse the masses, especially young people on sexuality. 

            What does the Bible say on this issue of being transgender? “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the Lord thy God” (Deut. 22:5). God’s condemnation throughout the Bible is pointed directly at those of either sex who try to break down the sexual differences which exist between a man and a woman.

            Research studies from 2009 – 2016, looking for a transgender gene, showed not a smidgeon of abnormality in the genetic makeup that would cause someone to become a transgender person. The truth is that transgender individuals need psychotherapy, not access to cross-sex restrooms, showers, and dressing areas. The reckless disregard for the mental disorder of transgenders in favor of enforcing preferred pronouns in our society is complete madness. Sexual differences between a man and woman will exist until the day we die!
