God’s Plan has God’s Purpose

                Absurd: “wildly unreasonable, illogical, or inappropriate, senseless…”. I think it’s time to begin throwing that word around more, especially when it comes to the “transgender debacle”.  A presidential candidate recently tied himself into a pretzel trying to include the transgender community in the abortion debate. (Every vote counts, you know).  Listen, Slick….only a woman can have an abortion because only a woman can get pregnant. To state otherwise is absurd. It doesn’t matter what a person thinks in his/her head, males cannot get pregnant. It is physically, physiologically, biologically, and medically impossible. For anyone (news media personalities, Hollywood celebrities, and politicians) to push anything less than that truth is…well…absurd.

Now you don’t have to be religious to know that.  I’ve known and now know unbelievers who have enough sense to know that there are only two sexes and those sexes are quite different and men cannot get pregnant.  But being a believer in Christ and holding true to the word of God, the Bible, we do have the strength to stand up to the absurdities of things that are the result of misguided and yes, sometimes even evil human imaginations.  Ephesians 4:14 says that as we become more mature in Christ “We will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming”.


Ask yourself this question: “why, all of a sudden, has the spotlight been shone on a community of people that represent at best .6% of the population?”.  That is point six percent. As in 6/10 of one percent! (From what I’ve read that’s probably about the same amount of people who believe they were abducted by aliens). That’s absurd.


Many say it’s because they have been marginalized and even discriminated against.  Unfortunately, people with mental problems are often avoided if that’s what you mean my marginalized.  It’s unfortunate, but it not a question of hate so much as awkwardness and not knowing what to say or how to act.  Discrimination? A man dressed as a woman used to come into the fabric store where Angie worked and purchase fabric. You know what? They sold him fabric.  When he left and went out to a fast food place to eat, they sold him burgers.  Walmart would sell him a ladies bicycle.  He can go into any museum, any theater, any public place that his heart so desires.


“But he can’t go into a ladies restroom!  That’s discrimination!”.  Nope. Not even close.  It’s common sense and a safety precaution.  To think that someone with male genitalia should be allowed into a women’s restroom is…absurd.  It goes to that last part of Ephesians 4:14 that instructs us to beware of “the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming”.


God has a plan and God has a purpose.  The sooner people recognize that the better off we all will be and the closer we will be to harmony, peace and unity.


Say good things about your Savior and His Church on the Bluff.
