David P. Smith: Where Will This Stop?

Hurricanes and tropical storms are named as either male or female with names that typically sound male or female. In this era of inclusiveness, it’s only a matter of time before the hurricane naming procedures need to undergo some changes. To accommodate everyone who now demands that we be tolerant, the naming procedures should name some of the “male” hurricanes and tropical storms with female names and vice versa. Also, some percentage of them should be named as male or female, but then the name could be considered to change gender at some point before it’s dissipated. Maybe we should just have all gender neutral names for the hurricanes and tropical storms. This may sound ridiculous, but it’s not anymore ridiculous than what we are seeing taking place all over this country right now.

Now that the military is allowing open homosexuality, there are already demands for the military to also recognize “transgender” persons (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/sep/28/after-demise-of-dont-ask-activists-call-for-end-to/). Now that the gate has been opened, there is no logical reason to stop anywhere with this. If no morality is to be recognized as absolute, there is absolutely no reason for anyone to follow any moral code of behavior. Without someone outside of ourselves being recognized as the author of what is moral versus immoral, there is no argument for rejecting anything as immoral except by the worldly way of deciding it by majority rule and relativism. God’s word is clear that what God says is sinful is still sinful even if everyone believes otherwise. The DNA of someone who wants to call themselves either gender still makes it clear what gender that person really is; if they don’t want to recognize the obvious, it doesn’t change it.

The absolute truth contained in God’s word must continue to be taught whether it’s rejected or not. To deny the full authority of scripture is to destroy the entirety of its truth and relevance to humanity in all times. The pastor in Iran who is sentenced to die (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=iran%20pastor%20faces%20execution&source=web&cd=4&ved=0CDkQFjAD&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fworld%2F2011%2F09%2F28%2Firanian-pastor-faces-execution-for-refusing-to-recant-christian-faith%2F&ei=whSFTt3kFse1twfqpv0s&usg=AFQjCNGz8gmL9LdMWFmrcsFSlcLdgeVopw) solely for being a Christian certainly understands the absolute truth of God’s word and he is willing to die for it. Cannot the pastors and churches in America who don’t face this kind of threat (not yet anyway) find it needful to boldly proclaim the truth of God’s word in the face of opposition? The New Testament church did so. Will we?
