By now, you’ve likely heard of the princess boy. You know, the little boy that wants to dress like a princess (on a regular basis). His parents completely support his decision and, in fact, his mom wrote a book about her supportive stance.
Then there was the mom that allowed her little boy to dress as female character last Halloween. Did you hear about that one?
The latest news is about the popular retailer whose ad depicts a mom painting her son’s toe nails a vibrant pink! Again, the social support has flooded in and I’m assure the retailer is simply thrilled for the press and national attention.
But, is a larger issue at play?
As guests on the morning talk shows discussed the latest ad, the commentators largely support it. In fact, conflicting opinions were labeled as “bullying” or inappropriate. In other words, their minds are completely open to accept transgender realities, then completely closed to views of Christianity or any conflicting modalities.
Have you noticed that society can speak of any lifestyle and any of choice, but when Christian values are raised, the social “boot” drops. What do you think? Does the world hate authentic Christianity? Now, I am not speaking of Christianity that is synthetic, all-accepting and wimpy. I mean a true, real depiction of the faith that is Bible-based, and encompasses the Godly standard while mirroring the life, commandments and knowledge of Jesus.
Hey, a simple visit to an online news outlet discussion group quickly reveals the contempt people have for a Christian World view.
So should Christians assimilate in silence or take a stand to confront wrong, sin and erroneous theologies? If so, then why don’t more Christians do it? Bear this scripture in mind as you contemplate your answer:
“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.” John 15:18-19
