“Church leaders called for the revisions to correct the “overwhelming use of masculine language” which they believe to be a “barrier to evangelizing young people,” according to Fox News.”
No, what they mean is they want to evangelize the LGBTQPXYZ crowd and bring them into the fold, just as the Catholic Church did with the Pagans long ago by adapting and mingling their beliefs into Catholicism! It is called Leaven in Scripture and you need to know why the Lord gave the parable about it. Catholicism, Anglican, and Protestants have, and are currently leavening in incremental bits! Galatians 5:9 “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.”
The whole of supposed Christianity has gone Apostate with the exception of very few who will not Bow to Baal!
The Lord knew this and is perhaps why he had the Holy Spirit, (who is Masculine BTW) inspired Matthew to record the Words of Jesus!
Matthew 7:13-19 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”
There are a few Feminist Jezebel’s who have infiltrated and are not only leavening the Church of England, but across the whole religious gamut They are demanding that God NOT be referred to as Masculine! What it all boils down to is this: The Queering and Feminizing of Young Boys, and Lesbian Collage Pharisee to Teach “Queering the Bible” Course
Matthew 15:7-9 “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
More and more these religious leaders, these Hounds of Hell, are caving into the Satanic Feminist agenda. They, the limp wristed men with lace on their panties, have been gelded and are mere tools of Lucifer!
1st Timothy 4:1-2 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”
Breitbart – Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has said that God is “not male nor female,” after female bishops demanded the Church of England stop referring to God solely as “he.”
The head of the worldwide Anglican communion told attendees at a lecture at St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square: “All human language about God is inadequate and to some degree metaphorical.
“God is not a father in exactly the same way as a human being is a father. God is not male or female. God is not definable.
“It is extraordinarily important as Christians that we remember that the definitive revelation of who God is was not in words, but in the word of God who we call Jesus Christ. We can’t pin God down.”
Professor of Christian history Diarmaid MacCulloch backed Archbishop Welby’s statement, telling The Times that the reason God has been perceived as male is due to “patriarchal assumptions” of early Christian societies of Greece and Rome. Read more here
Declare: To make known formally or officially.To state emphatically or authoritatively; affirm. To reveal or make manifest; show.
I really don’t think God needs these Pious, Pompous Fools, The Arch Bishop, nor the Pope to declare anything of, or about HIM! We have Scripture, via a correct translation, that declares what God thinks, what HE says, and WHO HE IS!!
There is always a BIT of truth mixed in with the LIE that Lucifer wants MEN and Women to believe. He whispered into the ear of Eve, and now he put a bullhorn to the mouths of Fools to deceive the masses.
With that said, let’s give this obvious Homosexual, and the Jezebel’s who are demanding WE not identify God with Masculine pronouns a bit of BIBLICAL instruction! Because one, they do NOT know God, and two, they obviously have never read scripture, Or they have just cherry picked they ones they want to support their Luciferian agenda!
As mere mortal humans, we can NOT know why God did, and does things the way he chooses to do. What we do know from Scripture is this; Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
Adam and Eve surely did know before they disobeyed and that knowledge was stripped from them starting in Genesis 2:15 through the whole of Genesis chapter 3. That reader, IS the Fall of MAN and where the Sin Nature, the Curse on humanity, came into existence! See Generational, Ancestral and Family Curses that proves it by Scripture!!!
1st Corinthians 2:14-16 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
The Question? Is God Male or Female? I offer this from Got Questions because it explains it well. (Emphasis mine)
Answer: In examining Scripture, two facts become clear. First, God is a Spirit and does not possess human characteristics or limitations. Second, all the evidence contained in Scripture agrees that God revealed Himself to mankind in a male form. To begin, God’s true nature needs to be understood. God is a Person, obviously, because God exhibits all the characteristics of personhood: God has a mind, a will, an intellect, and emotions. God communicates and He has relationships, and God’s personal actions are evidenced throughout Scripture.
As John 4:24 states, “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” Since God is a spiritual being, He does not possess physical human characteristics. However, sometimes figurative language used in Scripture assigns human characteristics to God in order to make it possible for man to understand God. This assignment of human characteristics to describe God is called “anthropomorphism.” Anthropomorphism is simply a means for God (a spiritual being) to communicate truth about His nature to humanity, physical beings. Since humanity is physical, we are limited in our understanding of those things beyond the physical realm; therefore, anthropomorphism in Scripture helps us to understand who God is.
I would like to interject here that Jesus is the SON of God. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” and Matthew 3:17 “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
He DID become MAN in Human Flesh John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Who is the Word? Jesus Christ! John 1:1-2 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God.” So Jesus was with God in the beginning and was who God made the statement about in the next paragraph.
Some of the difficulty comes in examining the fact that humanity is created in God’s image. Genesis 1:26-27 says, “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
Both man and woman are created in the image of God, in that they are greater than all the other creations as they, like God, have a mind, will, intellect, emotions, and moral capacity. Animals do not possess a moral capacity and do not possess an immaterial component like humanity does. The image of God is the spiritual component that humanity alone possesses. God created humanity to have a relationship with Him. Humanity is the only creation designed for that purpose.
That said, man and woman are only patterned after the image of God—they are not tiny “copies” of God. The fact that there are men and women does not require God to have male and female features. Remember, being made in the image of God has nothing to do with physical characteristics.
We know that God is a spiritual being and does not possess physical characteristics. This does not limit, however, how God may choose to reveal Himself to humanity. Scripture contains all the revelation God gave to humanity about Himself, and so it is the only objective source of information about God. In looking at what Scripture tells us, there are several observations of evidence about the form in which God revealed Himself to humanity.
Scripture contains approximately 170 references to God as the “Father.” By necessity, one cannot be a father unless one is male. If God had chosen to be revealed to man in a female form, then the word “mother” would have occurred in these places, not “father.” In the Old and New Testaments, masculine pronouns are used over and over again in reference to God.
Jesus Christ referred to God as the Father several times and in other cases used masculine pronouns in reference to God. In the Gospels alone, Christ uses the term “Father” in direct reference to God nearly 160 times. Of particular interest is Christ’s statement in John 10:30: “I and the Father are one.” Obviously, Jesus Christ came in the form of a human man to die on the cross as payment for the sins of the world. Like God the Father, Jesus was revealed to humanity in a male form. Scripture records numerous other instances where Christ utilized masculine nouns and pronouns in reference to God.
Another point I would like to make is this. God can not die, so that is why Jesus HAD TO come in the form of mortal man. But all the while he retained the attributes of God. In other words, He was fully man, and fully God!
The New Testament Epistles (from Acts to Revelation) also contain nearly 900 verses where the word theos—a masculine noun in the Greek—is used in direct reference to God. In countless references to God in Scripture, there is clearly a consistent pattern of His being referred to with masculine titles, nouns, and pronouns. While God is not a man, He chose a masculine form in order to reveal Himself to humanity. Likewise, Jesus Christ, who is constantly referred to with masculine titles, nouns, and pronouns, took a male form while He walked on the earth. The prophets of the Old Testament and the apostles of the New Testament refer to both God and Jesus Christ with masculine names and titles. God chose to be revealed in this form in order for man to more easily grasp who He is. While God makes allowances in order to help us understand Him, it is important to not try to “force God into a box,” so to speak, by placing limitations on Him that are not appropriate to His nature. Got Questions
1st Corinthians 16:22 “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.”
Anathema - a person or thing accursed or consigned to damnation or destruction.
Maranatha - the Lord is coming” or “come, O Lord.
Ezekiel 33:31-32 “And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. 32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.”
Since God is Spirit should we stop using Masculine pronouns to refer to God? Again I go to Got Questions for a good answer.
Answer: We know that God is a spiritual being. Strictly speaking, He does not have a gender. However God has chosen to reveal Himself to humanity using masculine pronouns and imagery. In the Bible, God does not refer to Himself using gender-neutral terms; He uses masculine terms. Since God has chosen to reveal Himself to humanity in language that specifies the masculine gender, we can and should refer to Him in similar language. There is no biblical reason to stop using masculine pronouns to refer to God.
From the very start in the Bible, God refers to Himself using masculine pronouns: “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). God refers to Himself from the beginning in masculine terms. Ancient Hebrew had no grammatically neutral-gender pronouns, so all items were intentionally given a grammatical gender of masculine or feminine. That pronoun was deliberate. In the Old Testament, the pronouns referring to God are grammatically masculine.
The same thing is found in the New Testament. The epistles (from Acts to Revelation) contain nearly 900 verses where the Greek word theos—a masculine noun—is used to refer to God. Although Koine Greek had gender-neutral terms, God is still referred to in the masculine gender.
In addition to the grammatical constructions, the imagery used in the Bible also confirms that God has chosen to refer to Himself as possessing male qualities. Several metaphors and titles are used to describe God. There are hundreds of references to God as a Father, King, and Husband. Jesus taught us to pray specifically to “our Father” (Luke 11:2). There are numerous other references to God as Father, such as Deuteronomy 32:6, Malachi 2:10, and 1 Corinthians 8:6. God is explicitly called a king (not a queen) in many passages; for example, Psalm 24:10, Psalm 47:2, Isaiah 44:6, and 1 Timothy 1:17. He is also described as a husband in places like Isaiah 54:5 and Hosea 2:2, 16, and 19.
In one place a simile is used to refer to God comforting His people like a mother comforts her child (Isaiah 66:13). Even there, God does not say He is a mother, only that He will comfort His people like a mother. Isaiah 49:15 is another verse that mentions a mother in a description of God, but it is not even a comparison; it is a contrast: God cares more for His people than a nursing mother does her baby.
The greatest revelation of God to us His Son, Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:2). In the Incarnation, the Son came to earth as a physical man, not a woman. Jesus consistently referred to God as His Father, not as His mother. Before His crucifixion, Jesus prayed to God, calling Him, “Abba, Father” (Mark 14:36). In the Gospels alone, Jesus calls God “Father” well over 100 times.
Again, God is spirit; He is not “male” in the sense that any man in this world is. God has no physical characteristics and no genetics. He transcends gender. At the same time, God has purposefully revealed Himself to us using masculine language. God is always a “He” in the Bible. Since God uses masculine pronouns to refer to Himself, we should continue using masculine pronouns to refer to God as well.
This idiocy coming from the Church of England, the Catholic church, as well as other supposed Christian entities, is merely a ploy to confuse and indoctrinate the masses into accept this idiocy of Non-Genderism that is being shoved down our throats! If they can twist scripture with half truths and convince people that God says so, then billions will fall into the trap and perish.
It is Lucifer’s plan to place doubt and challenge the Word of God! He did it to Eve and then to Jesus when he, Satan, Twisted Scripture, gave half-truth, and tempted the Lord in the wilderness… Luke 4:9-11 “And he ( Satan) brought him (Jesus) to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: 10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: 11 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.”
Satan knows Jesus is God and is also the Son of God manifested in the flesh! 1st John 3:7-8 “Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.“
“Ze” gender-neutral pronoun being pushed by safe space universities is identical to Communist China pronoun
“Guidance offered in a leaflet by the students’ union advises against using traditional pronouns, arguing that doing so suggests there are only two genders. Deliberately using the wrong pronoun for a transgendered person is an offence under the union’s code of conduct.”
I have news for all the snowflake “biological denialists” at Oxford and other “safe space” campus across America: There are only two sexes in humans: male and female.
This attempted removal of gender-specific pronouns from the English language is a blatant (and horrifying) campaign to sterilize the English language in order to appease a tiny fraction of the population that is, technically speaking, suffering from a condition that’s still recognized as a “mental illness” by the World Health Organization.
Esteemed psychiatrist explains why transgenderism is a mental disorder
“Transgenderism” is not rooted in biological reality. It is a mental disconnect from reality, and universities have no place trying to force gender-neutral language onto everyone just to appease biological denialists. As John Hopkins psychiatrist Dr. Paul R. McHugh wrote (source below), “…let us address the basic assumption of the contemporary parade: the idea that exchange of one’s sex is possible. It, like the storied Emperor, is starkly, nakedly false. Transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men. All (including Bruce Jenner) become feminized men or masculinized women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they ‘identify’.”
As he continued in “Transgenderism: A Pathogenic Meme,” “[transgenderism] is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerge.”
Communist China has no gender-specific pronouns, either… Oxford wants to turn English into a sterilized “communist” language
One fact in all this that virtually no one seems to consider is that Mandarin Chinese does not use “he” and “she” pronouns at all. People are referred to as “ta” which could mean either gender. I speak Mandarin Chinese, so I’m very familiar with this pronoun form. It explains why people from China tend to confuse “he” and “she” in the English language. You will often hear a Chinese man, when speaking English, say something like, “My wife, he went to the grocery store today…”
What’s really fascinating about this is that once children are raised to speak a language that lacks gender pronouns, as adults they can rarely speak correctly with such pronouns.
In other words, what Oxford and other delusional “safe space” universities are attempting to do is permanently remove gender pronouns from the English language, making sure future generations of Americans can’t even grasp the concept. This is nothing short of “linguistic eradication” of gender pronouns.
This is precisely the kind of social engineering that college campuses are now prioritizing in their indoctrination campaigns. Today, colleges aren’t trying to educate young people; they’re attempting to indoctrinate them with a new, radical left social agenda.
That agenda includes eliminating gender-specific pronouns, “normalizing” the mental illness of transgenderism, destroying the male archetype and feminizing everyone in society to the point where they are all turned into pathetic, self-loathing neutered weaklings ruled by domineering P.C. gender-jihadi facists.
Remember, in the world of delusional P.C. leftists, feelings matter more than facts. “Facts” actually have no place whatsoever in the leftist worldview. Only “feelings” determine their reality, which is why they can exist in such total contradiction to their biological reality.
Now, delusional leftists want to force their mental illness onto everyone
The most disturbing part of the left’s radical transgenderism agenda is that they are demanding all Americans adopt their mental illness and delusional, twisted worldview. If you believe that an individual cannot change XY chromosomes into XX chromosomes through wishful thinking, you are going to be derided as a “vile hater” who’s mean to people. But if you embrace the complete lunacy of believing that a male can be magically transformed into a female by declaring himself to be a woman, then you will be embraced by the mentally ill left, a dangerous “cult” that has proven itself to be utterly detached from reality on countless issues, from climate change to transgenderism to believing in lunatic Russian conspiracy theories about Trump’s election victory.
On a personal note, knowing how self-deceived these people are about sex, gender and climate change, I’m beginning to doubt everything claimed by the lunatic left. I’m coming to realize that the logic and reason parts of their brains no longer function at all, and they exist solely as “emotional animals” with no logic-based cognitive function whatsoever. You can’t reason with these people because the “reason” parts of their brains don’t work anymore.
So NO, those of us who are capable of intelligent thinking based in reality are not willing to acquiesce to the mental illness of the “alt-left” and their P.C. lingui-cide. They want to kill language, destroy rational thinking, obliterate logic and demand absolute obedience to their lunatic “bubble” fairy tales.
In essence, the goal of the radical left is to make you believe that utterly false, mentally insane narratives are “facts,” while things you know to be literally true are marginalized as “conspiracy theories.”
This also explains why left-wing news isn’t rooted in factual reality, either
Now, their false (and ridiculous) narratives have completely taken over academia, Hollywood movies, TV shows and most of pop culture. But repeating a falsehood over and over again doesn’t magically make it true. Just as they believe that gender is a “feeling” and not rooted in biological reality, they also think news facts should be based on feelings rather than evidence. Their fact-free lunacy pervades every institution of society, from education to news publishers to the workplace.
It’s all a sickness on society. It is mental illness run amok, pushed by delusional snowflakes who are so mentally malleable, many of them literally worship Hillary Clinton as a spiritual goddess. The “cult of leftism” is a danger to us all, and we must halt their transgenderism transgressions against sanity, reason and reality. We must reject their lunatic language sterilization attempts and bring our culture back from the brink of left-wing insanity.
