May 25, 2016: Transgender Triumphs


By Jerry Guiltner

There was a time in American history when so-called “transgendered” people were under a cloak of darkness. Most of us never saw or heard from a person who is confused about his or her sexual identity. However, today just as homosexuals have opened the door and walked into the light of day, so are those folks.

Among the latest transgender move is the appointing of a transgender “man” to a faith advisory position in President Obama’s warped world. Bob Unruh, a writer for World Net Daily (WND), posted a story on May 20 telling of the appointment.

Unruh wrote: “President Obama has appointed a transgender man to a prominent faith advisory position, sparking a flood of outrage from conservatives. His recent announcement that Barbara Satin to be a member of the president’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, a choice commentator Tim Brown at Freedom Outpost scorched as a ‘mentally sick transgender man.’”

No wonder there is outrage in conservative quarters. Satin was, according to the WND story, “the assistant faith work director for the National LGBTQ Task Force.” The nearly 82-year-old is an active member of the United Church of Christ and served as part of the denomination’s executive council becoming its first openly transgender member.

Speaking of the appointment, Derrick Wilburn wrote on Allen West’s website, “Its nothing short of amazing how far this president has come since his public affirmation of belief that marriage is between one man and one woman just a few years ago. Satin has a published biography which states in part, ‘At age 54, Barbara took early retirement and then began to explore more fully her transgender identity.’

The head of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, Peter LaBarbera, spoke to OneNewsNow saying, “Obama is obsessed with promoting homosexualism and now transsexuality. He’s engaged in a war o normal for the last eight years, and it looks like he’s trying to do as much as he can to promote xsexual and gender perversions as he can before he leaves office.”

LaBarbera continued, “He (president Obama) takes something that was actually designed to promote religious freedom and respect for religion and he subverts it by putting in a transgender activists from a liberal church who is at odds with the God of the universe. God made male and female. He didn’t make males to become females so the idea of transgender Christianity is absurd.”

Unfortunately, the transgender trash does not stop there. Obama’s transgender bathroom agenda overreach adds fuel to the fire. And Suzanne DeWitt Hall, claiming in a Huffington Post article that Jesus was the first transgendered man, and it is easy to see that the seriously confused sexual identity are making great strides in the United States. Perversion is rapidly becoming a permanent part of our morally sick society.

Ms. Hall claims that since Eve was taken from Adam’s rib, “She was created genetically male, and yet trans-formed into woman. Then along comes Jesus and the whole pattern is both repeated and reversed. The Holy Spirit comes upon the second Eve, and the child takes flesh from her and is born. Born of her flesh. Born genetically female, and yet trans-formed into man.” In her muddled thinking, Jesus was a transgender man.

An unnamed editor for the website, whatshotn, adds a comment on the Hall piece: “Her erroneous supposition that Jesus was born ‘genetically female’ fails to take into consideration that the Holy Spirit, who conceived Jesus in Mary, is male.”

We wonder why this is happening. In addition to a general decline in society, there is a downward trend in American churches as a whole. Maybe the blame should be laid at the doorsteps of liberal churches that allow biblically deviate practices among their members. We see a rise in the number of homosexuals in the pulpit and other high positions in some churches. And they do not rightly divide the Word of truth. If that is true, the church as well as those who promote perversion in the populace will ultimately be greatly judged by God Himself.

Partly this is a fulfilling of prophecy. In these last days it is prophesied that the church will become lukewarm, and put Jesus outside His own church.

We read the words of two New Testament writers. “Woe unto them! for they have gone the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Baalam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots. Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever” (Jude 11-13).

And Peter wrote, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel?” (1 Peter 4:17).
