Sometimes, if you’re not in the right place, things like Drudge Report headlines can be really depressing. Or really inspiring. Or a mix of the two.
This week we got an added dose of “really creepy” to go with depressing in the form of a link to People magazine’s story covering the ongoing degenerative mutation of former American Olympic hero and gold medal winner Bruce Jenner.
In Bruce Jenner is ‘Transitioning into a Woman’, People reports in a most affirming tone that Mr. Jenner is in the process of more and more aggressively pretending to be a woman by any and all means made available to him. The profound delusion that has overtaken Jenner is embraced as legitimate by default, with all subsequent discussion and “analysis” then purposefully reduced to the sort of brainless pagan cheer-leading and naked satanic propaganda that has become the norm here in “the land of the free” and the home of the brave.
“Bruce is transitioning to a woman,” says a source close to the family. “He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.”
And according to a different Jenner insider, the 65-year-old reality star is filming his momentous journey, to be shared with viewers on a docu-series this year. “It will air when he is ready to be open about his transition,” the source tells PEOPLE. “But he’s acting more and more confident and seems very happy.”
Jenner’s much-documented physical appearance (he’s been photographed with longer hair, manicured nails and wearing makeup) has led to much speculation, but according to the insider, Jenner’s decision to transition slowly was made in part so that his family would have time to adapt to the change.
One thing to note out of the gate is that the Jenner story sells. It is very marketable. As such, it is very profitable, making it just fine (and good, even) on many levels to many Americans, including many “conservative Christians” who have made the pursuit of the dollar an inherently good thing to the point that the open celebration of pro-perversion, culture-killing bilge like the “Bruce Jenner pretends to become a woman” story is good in a meaningful way as long as it makes a buck.
As long as it boosts the sales of the stores and venues through which it’s sold, it has to be positive in some sense. As long as the “good Christians” who hold stock in the companies manufacturing and promoting this anti-Christ perspective are made more financially prosperous through the increased sales brought through such materials, then it’s at least good enough to…well…profit from.
Well, no, but when we live in a land flooded with professing Christians who routinely fund and handsomely profit from such stuff without thought, concern, or even the beginning of a twinge of conviction, then we can see once again how it is that this culture’s ongoing sprint to oblivion is even now being greatly enabled (and temporarily profited from) by professing Christians. The desire to separate realms like business, economics, law, and education from active submission to Christ as King is a desire embodied and emphatically advocated by the vast majority of professing conservative Christians in America. We would be well served to start with that group as we consider how to revive the culture through the call to repentance and submission to the Word of God through the Gospel. (See: Judgment begins with the Church…not the Democrats.)
This unpleasant reality leads nicely into one of the other potentially depressing/creepy headlines to hit Drudge over the past 24 hours or so – NYT: Jebworld pushed Mitt out! – a story that covered how the Jeb Bush machine had basically squeezed Mitt Romney out of the controlled, contrived, wholly corporate owned game known as the Republican/Democrat presidential nomination process.
In Support waning, Romney Decides against 2016 Bid, we learn that 2012’s anti-Christian Republican nominee for President, proud Mormon Mitt Romney, who was seriously considering another run in 2016, was effectively shoved out of the ring by the latest member of the Bush clan to make a run at plunging our land and its people deeper and deeper into Orwellian Statism in the name of “good conservative principles”.
Just as the broader culture has accepted and embraced the tragically idiotic and culturally catastrophic notion of a man “transitioning into a woman”, so too has the professing Christian conservative subculture become not only comfortable with – but enthusiastically supportive of – the notion that open unbelievers with decades-long, miles-deep track records of confirmed anti-Christian worldviews in action are somehow, some way, going to lead us in a good, God-glorifying direction.
Cycle after cycle, decade after decade, and generation after generation, Christ-less “conservatives” are given opportunity after opportunity to lead the land and its people to a better place, yet the power of the State only grows as the power of the Family and Church necessarily and purposefully shrinks.
Through Corporate control and ownership of select puppets assigned the role of “Right Wing” representative, most of those who claim the name of Christ have been utterly neutralized, politically, and enslaved to what amounts to little more than a bad game show or ‘B’ movie crafted for the purpose of achieving their enslavement by entertaining and distracting them to death.
Distracting from what?
Christ, of course.
Those who have been encouraged and conditioned to put their “conservatism” (along with their patriotism) before Christ as their guiding light have then been easily led into darkness. Apart from the saving grace of God through His Gospel, they will cling in pride to their idols, leading others to do the same and join them in ruin…all in the name of America, patriotism, “good conservative principles” and even Christianity.
These are two of the most popular American worldviews that we must actively, lovingly confront and correct with the supernatural Gospel-fueled Great Commission of Christ the King.
If we want to truly save sexuality, the family, the work ethic, and the world of economics and business, the only path available to us is through the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
Bruce Jenner is not “transitioning into a woman”.
Secular conservatism is not “transitioning into (or even inching closer to) Christianity”.
They are both at war with God and as such can only ultimately lead to death and darkness.
There is no wig or nail polish that a secular worldview can put on that will somehow magically transform it into a Christ-centered, God-honoring creature.
There is no way to work one’s self (or one’s culture) toward God. Any approach to life or government based upon a contrary assumption can and will only lead further and further away from Him.
There is no way to honor God without purity of motive. Any claim to the contrary denies the fundamental nature of God, man, sin, and truth as clearly defined in Scripture.
Man-centered worldviews are all fundamentally satanic.
They all lead to ruin.
No matter how much lipstick they glop on or how many patriotic slogans they spew, they can only lead to death.
With all of this in mind, here’s a suggestion:
Let’s stop defending, enabling, and encouraging culture-murdering cross-dressers of all stripes.
Let’s repent of our past perversion enabling behavior and obediently take up the Gospel-fueled Great Commission, so that this culture might actually be restored…one supernatural salvation at a time.
