Like the North Carolinians who passed HB 2, Texans are now considering legislation that would require individuals to use public facilities based on “biological sex.” And, just as this common sense initiative has wrongly been vilified in the Tar Heel state, so it’s now being denigrated in the Lone Star state.
It’s bad enough when misguided citizens, those sunk deeply in the muck and mire of worldly values, come out against what’s clearly an irrevocable law of nature. But it’s nothing less than a scandal that reaches heaven itself when clergy do it in God’s name.
According to various news sources, Rev. S. David Wynn, the senior pastor of Agape Metropolitan Community Church in Fort Worth, along with hundreds of LGBTQ advocates, protested the Texas proposal outside of the state capitol building in Austin. Flanked by other Progressive ministers, Wynn, a female who identifies as a male, claimed the Texas “bathroom bill” is discriminatory against transgender persons, and that “God is transgender.”
We’ve become so accustomed to such perversions today, outrage is seemingly dead. The fact of the matter is, however, Wynn’s lifestyle is immoral, and her assertions nothing less than blasphemy!
Blasphemy, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, means to insult or show “irreverence toward something considered sacred or inviolable.” Unquestionably it’s insulting to God, and most irreverent, to attribute something corrupt to His holy, sacred, inviolable nature.
Dr. Michael Brown has sufficiently addressed claims like Wynn’s, noting that biblical teaching concerning God’s creation of male and female in His image, no more means God is transgender “than it teaches that God has sexual body parts or that He physically procreates.”
“Rather, it teaches that the fullness of male and female distinctives are found in Him, which does not mean that God is transgender; rather it means that He transcends gender. And so, while male pronouns are used to describe Him, and while He is called the heavenly Father (not Mother), He can be likened to a compassionate mother, because, as stated, as an eternal Spirit, He transcends gender categories,” says Brown.
“More importantly,” Brown adds, “when it comes to the bathroom controversies – in the beginning He created us as male and female and called us to procreate (“Be fruitful and multiply”), which only a distinct male and distinct female can do. There is no ambiguity here, nor is there ambiguity regarding male and female distinctives throughout the entire Bible.”
