  Be a Gentle Man
Posted by: Barnabas - 11-29-2019, 02:29 AM - Forum: Sex and Gender Differences Discussions - No Replies

Against the stereotypes of our culture, it is not only permissible, but right and something to strive for, to be a man who is gentle. 

See this article, "Want to Be like Jesus? Be Gentle."  at the Gospel Coalition

  Intersectionality and Critical Theory
Posted by: Barnabas - 11-24-2019, 12:56 PM - Forum: Sex and Gender Differences Discussions - No Replies

Intersectionality and Critical theory ideas are being used to dismantle gender and sex in our culture. It's confusing stuff, but important to be aware of. Read this helpful article that simplifies the theories we are up against.

  Speech about Transgenderism
Posted by: Barnabas - 11-24-2019, 12:54 PM - Forum: Transgender Discussions - No Replies

Ben Shapiro is not always the most sensitive speaker, but he has powerful logical arguments against transgender ideology. He clearly shows how it makes no sense, and shows how it is anti-scientific.  Give it a watch

  Detransitioners

Article about transsexuals detransitioning.  It's worth a quick read

Why the “born this way” argument doesn't advance LGBT equality | Dr. Lisa Diamond | TEDxSaltLakeCity
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjX-KBPm...e=youtu.be

Interesting Ted talk. Not a Christian talk, it comes from a very different worldview. But she gives lots of reasons to reject the "Born this way" argument. A friend recently told me that the vast majority of people in the LGBT community prefer to talk about homosexuality as an identity choice, whereas it's Christians who want to be compassionate who are trying to push the "born this way" argument in order to try to change church doctrines on this issue.

As I, and many others, have always argued, the "born this way" argument has no bearing at all on the moral issues of homosexuality. And it also has no bearing on our compassion. Even if people choose to live a homosexual lifestyle we are still supposed to respond to them with love and compassion as our Lord told us to.

What are your thoughts?

  Powerful testimony
Posted by: Barnabas - 11-01-2019, 12:13 AM - Forum: Homosexuality Discussions - Replies (1)

I came across an article about a new book, but it is really an interview with the author and a chance for him to share his testimony. I highly recommend reading it. It will inspire you to live for Christ and give you great encouragement!

  Pronoun chaos
Posted by: Barnabas - 10-18-2019, 09:22 AM - Forum: Transgender Discussions - No Replies

This is quite an interesting article analyzing the pronouns and language the LGBT advocates are pushing

https://www.dailywire.com/news/walsh-you...n-pronouns

I agree that we should call people by whatever name they want. Names are arbitrary. But I will not use the 50+ pronoun sets that are being proposed for the same reasons he outlines.

  True Repentance

I was blessed by this short article on what repentance really looks like.  I hope all husbands who apologize to their wives about crossdressing can exhibit these traits:

  Egalitarianism or complementarianism?
Posted by: Barnabas - 10-03-2019, 05:56 PM - Forum: Sex and Gender Differences Discussions - Replies (1)

Interesting article - https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/artic...mentarian/
that is in favor of complementarianism.


Are most in this group egalitarians or complentarians? I guess I should be more specific -
1. in terms of women in church leadership?
2. in terms of marriage?
