Welcome to our Brave New America, where nothing is sane and nothing is safe…except for our pride, of course.
No gender is safe.
No concept is safe.
No area of life is safe.
No word is safe.
And ultimately, no thought is safe.
This tragic reality becomes more and more clear when we bother to consider what certain definitive phrases and terms have come to actually mean these days here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.
What do “freedom” and “liberty” actually mean here now? (See: So the American State has to destroy our freedom in order to protect it? Oh yeah, that makes sense.)
What does “privacy” actually mean here now? (See: Privacy is for masters. Transparency is for slaves. Welcome to “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.)
What do “gender”, “man” and “woman” mean here now? (See: Gender Chaos: The Insanity (and Impossibility) of “Sex Change”.)
What does “family” mean here now? (See: Duggar Drama and the Trans-Jennerism of American Culture.)
What do “money”, “work” and “economics” mean here now? (See: Fiat $lavery: We have been bought and paid for…with nothing.)
Most revealingly and important of all: What does “God” actually mean here and now in America? (See: The America Idol: How “Christians” Worship and Enable the Anti-Christ State.)
In America, “God” means whatever you want it to mean. The “God” of America has even given us “the right” to worship any god we like…something the one true God of creation despises, which is one rather glaringly obvious way of clueing us in to the fact that the “God” of America is not the God of Christianity. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)
This is what happens when God gives people over to their pride, and few cultures in human history come close to modern day America when it comes to flagrantly Christ-dismissing pride.
Whenever man – even American man – sees himself as free to define reality apart from the binding Nature of God as revealed in His Word, all bets are off, everything’s on the table, and everything on the table is ultimately doomed.
Welcome to ‘Merica!
Along those lines, this week in Caitlyn Jenner to be Honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at The 2015 ESPYS on ABC July 15, we learned that:
“Almost 40 years ago, Bruce Jenner’s Olympic success came as a result of strengthening both his mind and body leading to his status as one of the world’s greatest athletes, but the decision to publicly come out as a transgender woman took a different kind of courage and acceptance of one’s self. To celebrate that bravery, ESPN today announced that Jenner will be presented with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at The 2015 ESPYS Presented by Capital One. Presented annually to individuals whose contributions transcend sports, the Arthur Ashe Courage Award is the pinnacle of the sports celebration . . . “
Well howsabout that?
The “pinnacle of the sports celebration” is to center on a man who has mutilated his genitalia, pumped himself with hormones, and is now pretending to be a woman.
Well done Disney! (Who owns ESPN and has done such a fine job helping America to “transition” into a Brave New understanding of sexuality, family and gender for such a long time now. See also: Disney, the NSA, and Republicans’ relentless pimping of the America Idol.)
So how long before “Miss Courageous” gets a reality show of his/her/its own?
I hear that a time slot has recently opened up on TLC, where some crackpot Christians – none of whom are even “Transgendered”! – used to promote arcane, insane Christian approaches to family life. (See: Please pray for the Duggars. This world REALLY hates them.)
Sounds like the perfect symbolic slot for the sure-to-come Miss Courageous reality show, no?
These are the kinds of twists and turns on the way down the drain of history that really shouldn’t surprise us at all. Oh sure, they’re often bizarre and very sad, but surprising?
Not when we understand as Christians that everything in life, culture and civilization is inextricably defined by the Nature of God as revealed in His Word.
This culture is only doing what it’s doing because we have encouraged and led it to do so. We have abandoned the life- and culture-saving truth and power of the Gospel-fueled Great Commission, trading it in for Candy Christianity, Magic Christianity and a pathetic, weak little “Gospel in a Bottle“. (See also: Judgment begins with the Church…not the Democrats.)
The one and only hope for this culture and the people of this land is for the Church – the true people of Christ – to lead the way in personal repentance and reformation, taking up the Gospel-fueled Great Commission mandate to make obedient subjects of Christ the King in every realm of life right here and now.
Only then will culture be saved.
Only then will family be preserved.
Only through Him can freedom and liberty be real. (See: How to truly love (and really save) America.)
While the restoration of these things may sound so very appealing to the ears of many, the road to that restoration is hard. It requires self-sacrifice. It inspires persecution. It is not for the weak, apathetic, lazy “Christians” that now define American culture. Not at all.
This path requires courage.
And, by the grace of God, that is exactly what He has given His people. (See: Roaring into Post-America Christianity.
