At the risk of ruining the joke, this video is deeper than its creator knows. When we reject God’s standard – not only for gender but anything else – we’re left not simply with another standard, but ultimately with no standard at all. That’s because whatever else is proposed won’t have a foundation, and pushed to its logical end, it will topple. And, as in this video, when a real reliable standard is sought, the seekers will then find themselves nearing the standard God has put in place all along.
There is a specific way that Christians are called to disapprove of homosexuality, based not simply on distaste, but on the truth of God’s Word. As John Piper writes:
“Christians do not base what we ought to do on what we feel like doing — or not doing. Desires can be deceitful. Rather, we are to “understand what the will of the Lord is.” God’s truth, not our desire, points the way to freedom: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Some non-Christians may argue that the desire for sodomy is enough to make it good. But by that same principle, the feeling of revulsion toward sodomy is also good. If it feels good, it’s okay. Therefore, sodomy is okay, and revulsion at sodomy is okay. A Christian does not think this way.”
How do we account for 350,000 species of beetles if Noah’s flood was only 4,500 years ago?
Some of these are fantastic. Others…less so. In our house, we play “hallway hockey” with a lightweight ball.
“School shootings in America have dramatically increased over the last few decades. Gun ownership, however, hasn’t.”
The economic system most compatible with Christianity is easily corrupted without Christianity.
