I am always dismayed when I hear of society falling back spiritually. Moral decline in the world today is no longer incremental. It is in pure free-fall.
A school system in Alabama wants to change its policies so gender boundaries will be removed from what people wear. Like everything else in society, this is derived from a fear of being sued.
A lawyer recently addressed a school board where he:
“cited a case in Atlanta in which a male employee of the Georgia Assembly’s Office of Legislative Counsel was fired in 2007 after wearing women’s clothing to work.”
When my children asked why ridiculous rules existed in schools or in society, my answer was always the same. Somewhere along the way, someone was afraid of getting sued. Our entire society is being ruled by paranoid political correctness.
While the culture is traveling down the wormhole to hell and increasingly bizarre behavior is being rewarded, we must never think that God cares what they think. Before time and culture even existed, God had already decided what He believed and would accept (Psalm 119:89).
God’s Word will never conform to culture. We can burrow deeper and deeper into the slime but God will never follow us. We must not even “think beyond what is written” (1 Corinthians 4:6). If God didn’t approve it in Scripture, then it will never be approved (Colossians 3:17).
Today, we live under the law of the New Testament (Hebrews 9), not American law. God has NEVER taken a public opinion poll and He will never consult us for what we want (Exodus 20:3). We cannot change God or sway him to our side. God doesn’t need our opinions because He knows everything (1 John 3:20; Acts 17:25).
Truth be told, even in heaven there isn’t any discussion of the issues. God the Father is always the final voice (John 14:10; 16:13). If Jesus and the Holy Spirit can’t alter’s God’s mind, why do we think we will?
We must follow God, not men. End of story.
