Transgenderism is a cult religion making the individual person who identifies as transgender their own god with their own authority to deny their creator and given sex. In place, they assert ‘their truth’ and gender identity unto others. Adherents to this religion recognize the individual’s authority to reject God their creator and to own and assert with all authority as God, ‘their truth’ of gender upon others and their speech, actions, beliefs, and spaces. In this exercise of their authority and rejection of their creator and their sex, they dehumanize themselves by removing them from the source of truth that defines their humanity and their inherent value.
They begin this exercise by creating new words for old thinking. Cis-Gender describes the person who identifies as the gender they were “assigned” at birth. And then introduce gender-fluid, gender-nonbinary, and the list goes on. They have developed and approved ways of speaking and writing when it comes to gender. You can read The National Council of Teachers of English’s official Statement on Gender and Language who supports and documents many tenets of the transgender religious speech code.
The pronouns we use as it relates to sex, regardless of our beliefs, speak to the truth of creation and the authority of God and carry with its spiritual meaning (1 Cor 2:13).
Our words matter. Life and death are in the tongue. (Ps 18:21) It is wholly unloving of a Christian to knowingly use the wrong pronouns for a person. To knowingly do so would be to affirm a lie and make God a liar. May this never be. May the believer love their neighbor as God created them, male or female. May the believer never speak evil, the wrong pronoun, over another human.
Unfortunately, Transgender adherents seek to force ‘preferred pronoun’ use on others so that in other people’s use of their pronouns, they receive affirmation of ‘their truth’ and feel ‘safe’ and ‘respected’ and ‘valued.’ The transgender individual and their adherents are often and easily offended when their authority over ‘their truth’ and ‘their identity’ and ‘their pronouns’ are not recognized or used by others who know the sex of the person and fear God and desire to honor the person’s sex with the correct pronouns.
To ensure everyone in the transgender religious community feels affirmed in ‘their truth,’ the scribes of their faith have collected dozens of new pronouns they have been declared ‘true.’ And many pronouns are captured that are ‘gender neutral’ so as to not offend any transgender adherents’ sensibilities. The use of ‘they/them/theirs’ has become prevalent.
The religious practice of pronoun use has protocol and tradition. When introducing yourself as most people do with, “Hi, my name is,” the transgender adherent will inject their pronouns as well rather than let someone assume, “and my pronouns are they/them/theirs.” This declaration is not a polite invitation to use their pronouns as much as it is a declaration of their truth and the requirement for the hearer to adhere to those pronouns when speaking.
Destruction of Sexed Words
In an act of religious tyranny over the historical use of sexed language, the transgender religion has gone as far as taking it upon itself to de-sex languages. They claim that to continue using sexed words is offensive, hateful, and dehumanizing.
They have demanded replacing words such as Postman to Postal Carrier, Chairman to Chair, Father or Mother to Parent, Son or Daughter to the child. Even the sex on a birth certificate is taught as an offensive act and renamed the process of identification of one objectively true sex to ‘sex assigned at birth.’
Transgenderism Adherents Dehumanize Themselves
And for this offense, the transgender demands by their authority, and by the collective cult authority of other transgender adherents, and surprisingly even now the authority of governments, to punish those who don’t believe and speak as they do. They would have us dehumanize them.
Dehumanize, you ask? That is exactly what ‘preferred pronouns’ do when they are used. The very thought and words in the ‘preferred pronoun’ are religious statements. Until now, we’ve taken them for granted to mean male or female sex, something that is so obvious in our western culture because the Judeo/Christian belief in a creator and objective observation of humans as male and female was so widely accepted.
But now, the transgender religion is being normalized at breakneck speed, so people have suffered from the whiplash of being rear-ended by this transgender religion. The average American has never had to think about pronouns before. It was just a given. Now we are forced to figure out the epistemology of pronoun use! Why do we have pronouns and use sexed pronouns? To honor the Creator and the human as male or female! We are showing dignity and value to people’s sex by using our language with correct pronoun use.
Transgender religion has done away with the ‘construct’ of sex and now requires all people to be identified by gender. This requires denial of our Creator and the dignity of being human created in His image as male and female. They would argue that to assign sex at birth is to be violent against the human who hasn’t yet chosen their gender. So objective reality and language around sex have been deemed a sin in transgender religion. To the Judeo/Christian believer, the use of a wrong pronoun would be a sin. I would go as far as an abomination toward God, as it denies His authority, His good works of creation, and the dignity and inherent value of the individual as a created being, male or female, made in the image of God (Gen 1:27). In obedience to and love to God, a Christian cannot label a man as a woman, or a woman as a man, through the forced use of pronouns. I would rather die than offend God in this way (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).
Government Power and Unalienable Rights
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of HappinessDeclaration of Independence
Thank God that in the United States, we have the 1st Amendment, which puts into writing our unalienable rights so that our speech and freedom to worship God in our speech and behavior is protected from the tyrannical forces of darkness that want to force us to dehumanize people by using the wrong pronouns, their ‘preferred pronouns’.
The source of our unalienable rights is our Creator. Any government which would deny the Creator evidenced their denial by passing ‘trandgender rights’ laws or policies that dehumanize men and women, boys and girls, rejects the authority of our Creator and His sovereignty over us. Such a government that has rejected God is unrestrained from the fear of God and judgment and therefore will desire in rebellion to deny inalienable rights exist and replace them with ‘human rights’ given by the government’s authority, or more plainly, by mankind. Such governments are taking the authority of God for themselves. This behavior, loudly expressed in the LGBTQ agenda, and especially in the transgenderism religion, is tyranny over the people. And this type of tyranny ends poorly for the people. We do not want to give this kind of power to the government nor align with a godless religion. In the United States, the government is entrusted to protect our unalienable rights, not destroy them and replace them with faux transgender human rights based on the rejection of our Creator and His good creation of mankind. Citizens beware. Your vote is the currency of your virtue. Use it wisely.
We pray and appeal to our Creator, our heavenly Father, for mercy and grace that we would repent of allowing transgender religion to take hold, that anyone who has participated in rejecting our Creator and dehumanizing others would repent, and for the grace to return the truth and authority of God. We pray that our hearts and minds would be transformed to be like the mind of Jesus Christ. We pray that by the grace through Jesus Christ that those who are trapped in the transgender cult would be set free. We pray our government leaders would repent for forcing such degrading and dehumanizing false religious beliefs on our people. These beliefs reject our Creator and deny His good works in creating us, male and female. We pray the light of Christ will be seen through the church and draw in people to repent from transgenderism and be restored to their right minds as male or female as God created and willed for them. We pray that God would raise up virtuous people to replace those in power who are harming our children with these transgender laws and policies. We pray the heart of our people in this nation would return to their Creator, that courage and boldness would be given to the men to rise up and take their place as leaders in the community and put an end to this delusion that is harming our children, communities, and nation. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Genesis 1:27 NASB1995
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. 14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 15 But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. 16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:12-16 NASB1995
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
Proverbs 18:21 NASB1995
13 The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. 14 For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.
