As dit begin drup in die kerk (‘geslag maak nie saak nie’), dan reën dit in die wêreld (‘geen geslag maak saak nie’)

Women’s Sanitary Bins & Bathroom Theology

AS DIT BEGIN DRUP IN DIE KERK ….

“Janse van Rensburg sê die enigste laagtepunt in sy loopbaan is dat hy nooit daarin kon slaag om die meerderheid mense in die Gereformeerde Kerk in Suid-Afrika te oortuig dat geslag geen rol hoef te speel by die oorweging vir besondere dienste in die kerk nie.” – 29 Januarie 2016 (beklemtoning bygevoeg) 

Wat is die gesegde, as dit begin drup in die kerk, dan reën dit in die wêreld?*

Dit wat baie kerkmense in die 20ste eeu as ‘bevryding’ beskou het – radikale feminisme in die wêreld; en ‘evangeliese feminisme‘ in die kerk – is besig om in ‘n nagmerrie te ontaard in die 21ste eeuse wêreld.

Dekades se “geslag maak nie saak nie” propaganda (lees: God se skeppingsorde en wil maak nie saak nie) is besig om nou vrugte te dra in die westerse wêreld ook deur die afvallige kerk.

Behalwe al die slegte vrugte van die 20ste eeu, is daar vandag al meer ‘n oproep dat kinders self kan besluit watter geslag hul is, ongeag dat die Here hul ‘n seun/man of dogter/vrou geskep het.

Saam met dit is daar ook ‘n oproep vir ‘geslagsneutrale’ toiletgeriewe. Wat God onderskei het, sal ons nou deur wetgewing saamdwing.

Sien bv hierdie artikel in Suid-Afrika: Who will put down the toilet seat at Wits?

En tragies, as die kerk van Christus, as predikers en teoloë nie die Skrif se skeppingsorde meer handhaaf nie, gaan die lidmate dit nie meer handhaaf nie, en dan natuurlik – nog minder gaan die samelewings waarin die kerk haar bevind dit doen, as daar nie meer ‘n reg verkeerd is nie, as ‘geslag nie meer saak maak nie’.

As die kerk nie meer die Lig van God se Woord self handhaaf nie, hoe kan hul dit wees as ‘n sout en lig in hierdie wêreld (Matt.5:13-16) ?

Sien die volgende artikels wat wys ‘geslag maak saak’, want dit is God se skeppingsorde en wil in Jesus Christus, vir die huwelik, maar ook die besondere ampte in die kerk: Geslag maak saak

Ek plaas met erkenning dr. Peter Jones se artikel hier, sodat u sal besef wat alles op die spel is, ons lewe in een van die grootste rewolusies ooit, in die woorde van Ps.2, waar die valse kerk en valse staat saamsweer teen die Here en sy Gesalfde se skeppingsorde en wil vir die mens:

Women’s Sanitary Bins & Bathroom Theology

What has been for millennia a self-evident truth has become within a year or so unthinkable prejudice. The principled experts of the twentieth century, Ringo Starr and Bruce Springsteen, have quickly jumped into the moral crusade of ethical outrage, amazed that the state of North Carolina would refuse to allow grown men to use the ladies’ restrooms.

An employee of a Catholic university (Loyola Marymount) committed cultural blasphemy by stating that there are only two genders (a view entirely compatible with Catholicism). The university, however, has suspended her and is currently investigating her for a “hate crime.”

It gets more manifestly insane. Students at my alma mater, Cardiff University, and in other UK schools, are demanding the installation of women’s sanitary bins in male toilets “for men who menstruate.” This is logical lunacy. The inevitable demand for urinals in women’s restrooms will surely follow. This demand actually affirms the opposite of what these progressives claim, forcing them to admit that women pretending to be men still need sanitary bins, because they menstruate, and men don’t. Human sexuality is defined by an objective biological binary trait—either “XY” or “XX” chromosomes. But by using the term “gender” to mean not one’s biological sex but one’s sense of being male or female, moral outrage can find full expression. Laws that can put you in jail are no longer based on objective biology but on subjective, changeable feelings.

What is the deep motivation for this bizarre state of affairs?

This “faith” in feelings, which disregards biological objectivity, is both mental insanity and spiritual rebellion. While we’ve never needed bathroom humor, presently we do need some serious bathroom theology!

Clear-headed theology reveals what is happening in our Left-leaning, progressive world. We are witnessing the reappearance of an old heresy, Gnosticism. The Gnostics rejected the flesh and embraced the spirit. For them, the physical, created world was an evil thing, made by Satan. They believed the spirit revealed the true “god within,” as do many today, in search of their “higher selves.” Interestingly, the ancient Gnostics also rejected creational sexuality and sought the higher form of “androgyny,” the experience of being both male and female—which is the same rejection of the male/female gender binary that we observe today.

Here are a few examples:

  • Oberlin College, founded by two Presbyterian ministers, is now committed to “finding a space that…defies the binary in our society…that you were assigned.”
  • all five of Scotland’s main political parties have pledged to push for a “non-binarygender legal recognition…in all areas of life.”
  • the goal of yoga, according to a serious practitioner, is to create “… direct awareness of the unity of everything, to break through the usual false binaries within which we tend to live.”

One of the “false binaries” that Hindu thinking eliminates is that between the Creator and the creature, serving a deeply religious goal. This suppression exhibits, as we say at truthXchange, the conflict between the only two worldviews, Oneism and Twoism. We now observe a growing worldview by which people, especially young people, are taught to reject differences and distinctions.

Recently a deliberately set-up video showed US college students so brainwashed that they refused to counter the outlandish claims of a 5”9’ white man to be a 6”4’ Asian woman! Their insane response was: “How can I judge what is true for you?”

Clearly, the rejection of any objective binary is not limited to sexuality. It is also a new theory of education. One education expert said:

One of the key strategies to unsettle and trouble entrenched ways of [children’s] thinking is to blur all kinds of boundaries—the clean categorical identity boundaries that support binary thinking as well as the boundaries between academic fields. This is why I think it is so useful to deploy a binary-busting, Queer perspective across a range of disciplinary contexts.

The seeds of Eastern mysticism sown in the West a generation ago are bearing copious fruit. The legendary Buddhist spiritual teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, influential among UN leaders, declared: “We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.

Separateness is not an illusion, in two senses. In a positive sense, we are separate (distinct) from the Creator as his creatures, made in his image, males different from females.  In a negative sense, we are separated from God by our sin. In the cross of his Son, Jesus, we can know forgiveness and personal reconciliation with the Creator and, through this, rediscover the sanity of the objective distinctions God placed in the creation for our good and his glory.

* ek weet die gesegde is eintlik andersom (dus wat in die wêreld aangaan beïnvloed die kerk), maar ek wil juis doelbewus die punt maak dat wat in die kerk verkondig word beïnvloed ook wat in die wêreld aangaan, ten goede of ten kwade (sien Matt.5:13-16; 2 Tim.4:1-5).
