In a culture where truth has been exchanged for a lie, Jesus has called his church to be the light on a hill and for our light to shine before others. Christians should boldly speak the steady truth of the Bible with grace, even when everything around us is wavering. So what should a Christian’s response to the transgender movement be? In this message, Pastor Chad addresses this elephant in the room.
Many today have heard that Christianity is oppressive – oppressive to women and the marginalized. Is there any truth to this claim, or has a wrong representation of Jesus clouded the lens of which society views Christianity? In this message, Pastor Chad addresses this elephant in the room.
“Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon, than the word of God.” Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason -1794
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent (almighty, infinite). Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent (wishing evil or harm). Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?” Epicurus, 341-270 B.C.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Truly you are a God who hides himself. Isaiah 45:15
