Target panders to LGBTs; and the bride’s wearing soiled undies.

CAUTION: Today’s post contains a frank, candid discussion of the state of the bride of Christ. To err on the side of caution, I recommend it for adult readers only.

Today at Target stores if you’re a guy and feel like a girl, you can use the girls’ bathroom. Or if you’re a girl, and feel like a guy, you can use Target’s mens’ bathroom.

Target announced on April 19, “We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,”

“Nearly everyone has a mother, wife, daughter or friend who is put in jeopardy by this policy,” American Family Association President Tim Wildmon said. “Predators and voyeurs would take advantage of the policy to prey on vulnerable little girls and women.

“Everybody knows it’s wrong for men to use the same bathrooms and fitting rooms with little girls,” Wildmon said. “Target has decided they don’t care about the vast majority. They only care about the tiny, tiny minority.”

No one got to choose their parents, or how God delivered them on their birthday. No person can choose his/her identity.  Our physical, spiritual and emotional identity was created by God. Guys can’t load up on estrogen (or girls on testosterone) and change what God created. Just because some folks don’t believe that doesn’t mean it’s not true. It is.

The church is responsible for this and dozens of other social and cultural abominations.bride of Christ The church is at fault. Not society. Not government. Not rock & roll. Not Hollywood. Not gays. Not transgenders. Not bad parenting. Not drugs. Not over-sexed teenagers.

It’s the church.

The Bride of Christ has soiled undies. She’s been slowly abdicating her role as Ambassador for Christ. She is forgetting the covenant with her God. She has not listened to the voice of her teachers. She is almost in utter ruin. She is loosing her influence. She is losing her power. She is losing her beauty and her luster.

The world no longer gazes on her and smiles in acceptance and admiration. The world looks at her and laughs and mocks. They criticize her values and beliefs and call her a hypocrite. They accuse her of being intolerant.

That’s us, folks. We are her. She is us. Oh, some folks are passionate about their causes or their mission trips or their committees or their Bible study class or their church status or the Bile verses they’ve memorized. Some folks boast of their years as a believer. Read their Bible daily.  Tithe. invite dozens to church. Many folks truly believe they’re doing everything right.

But, as Christ admonishes the church at Laodicea,

I know your deeds, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. From Revelation 3:14-21

We are the bride of Christ.  Our undies are soiled.
And our singular hope for regaining our ravishing beauty for Jesus is 2 Chronicles 7:14.

    God does not make any mistakes – He created men and women..those who doubt or muck around with God”‘s perfect plan have to suffer the consequence or pay the price of moving out of His will, even affecting their loved ones? It is not the blood bought body of Chtist at fault,, it is those who would straddle between choosing God and their own preferences.

    i can understand and embrace the passion but the argument is at best false and a significant example of the one thing the church is guilty of
    equating the sinner and sin
    Jesus loved the sinner yet abhorred the sin and actively worked to show people why the sin was an error. if the church is “guilty” it’s the abject cowardice of living expressing and voting their convictions rather than a simple label.

    consider this
    everyone wants to guard the women’s restroom what about the men’s room who’s watching it
    people can judge transgenderism yet the larger perviersion is ignored for the sake of a seemingly moral victory that doesn’t account for the fact
    men born men and women born women are having and acting out some horrible thoughts toward children and one another for that matter.

      Thank you, RT. It’s a real upheaval in our culture and I believe we’re headed down the wrong path. Thanks for sharing.
