Thank you for having me on your show and looking forward to our discussion, I had to give you a good commercial today is the Dir. of admission and so I just want to gurgle we really jump into our subject today is funk. I can't tell you what great great school. This is and I know if you like to visit Dr. Finch and her team would love to give you a tour and send you a lot of information so be sure to take a look.

Dr. Vince before we get started until all the political and social things are going on today always like our guests have the opportunity to share with the listeners of who they are and how to get you know you on a personal level, and then after that if you could maybe share how you came to know the Lord saying everything I crack in campus Florida and back and back riding a calm, radiant back for another season that I grew that we did not go to church regularly, that we were part of our life and going for an Easter and enter any times a year, but I think the first time I remember hearing the gospel.

I Have Hwy., Philly wrestling land when I believed and had older brothers and sisters and I saw that became committed to the Lord and I realized that I didn't know what would happen if I die I die conference.

It was right before I started high school and I clearly heard the gospel like I was a sinner in need of a Savior and I gave my life to Christ. Right before I started high school and everything changed for me. My my Highlands and my time, my direction in life and shortly after that I felt like the Lord may be calling me into ministry that looks like in the 15-year-old young woman. I was really thankful for men and women in my church came along find me they were tightest teammate and women in my life and I like the Lord made economy and administration – I really have a heart for discipleship in college. I try to work in my church here in Tampa Florida doing girls ministry and got my undergraduate degree in interpersonal communication.*I get something to a degree in something that will help you with people. I think in kind overseas working with international mission board with teenagers and whale and then I think I picked a degree that had been next Bible class is really passionate out the word of God and passionate people understanding what God cannot subject matter versus much of what the culture stack because bargaining colleges pretty heavily influenced by the world via secular and and so when I got to seminary and started really examining what does God's word say and also leaving that if God is good news and inside I got into Scripture.

My natural dignity and I'll send my PhD in systematic theology, and I'm delighted now to be at Mid-America.

I met Prof. here as you send again when inside you to come alongside our our ladies that are here wanting to be better equipped to be working unashamed correctly handling the word of tree and serving the Lord and biblically appropriate way you spell it like a light should be here in Memphis Tennessee. We have good barbecue. Although I have to tell you crack just made Ted Memphis on yet and everyone sat were known for barbecue here, but I'm actually partial to North Carolina barbecue.

The vinegar base south. Now I and a few years of graduate school in North Carolina and fell in love with the barbecue. There often lived in Texas for I for many years and so all of those places think they have good barbecue but I am partial to the North Carolina time of the major speaking of earthly and the business people, but I live it, but my hope is to realize that what you're talking about love. The world doesn't know about that Eastern North Carolina vinegar baseball is really different day to yellow meltwater and I'm hungry. But what about loving the barbecue.

Well let me give you a will is you just moved to Memphis so there are different types of barbecue. You may not realize the thought of this but I would recoat both the barbecue and I used a piece of years and is a professional barbecue circuit based out of Memphis Memphis in May and the third different one Kansas City different areas around the country, but where you live just coming up in a couple weeks. There's a huge, huge barbecue festival is really called the Super Bowl of swine. It's called this and met the world barbecue championships and is right down there on the banks of the Mississippi River.

So you probably their style is not the vinegar base but you ought to get a ticket and just go down there because the best cooking teams in the world will be converging. I think it's the third week of May. I'm not sure it is the this has nothing to do with gender studies, but it's important to understand barbecue at the outages check about you learn something about a different culture there. The Memphis of barbecue style culture while you're working there at Mid-America Western medicine out. I am so hungry up all love me barbecue anyway. I wanted to touch you will get the breaker just as I could. But before we do. Hello there you mention we were sharing your testimony that your pastor gave you advice a great testimony and that's something that I think many young people do is go to your pastor and think about drugs wanted to commend you on that and think your pastor for putting some thought into what you should study how that would apply in your life down the road that something you counsel women on is your baby as you have applicants coming to Mid-America to talk to their youth pastor.

The senior pastor to get a vitals on the study that they should look into what to go to college. When you know I love working with teenagers. It's really the age group that I'm very passionate about part of what we do see people that are pursuing studies are in our churches.

We help equip them to do is learn how to make decisions on identical perspective and so when you are thinking about you should marry, what degrees you should pursue all of the kind you see God's wisdom ultimately we hear that through prayer and reading Scripture. Another way that we seek God's direction by giving godly counsel and I am thankful that my actors were actually Shepherd they could be trusted. Their preaching character over time and I was really blessed to have people pastor. He pastor Sunday school teachers that put into my life network why older men and women in my life and so you counsel people as they are making decision to seek godly counsel to be honest I don't know every pastor out there and have the way I phrased it in godly counsel look like a people apply look at people that are pursuing the things of the Lord are on the path and with an athlete should seek advice because applicant actors that are not walking with the Lord that are advocating on difficult things and so I hope you are sitting under godly teaching, but the way I phrased it and I said, somebody's asses a lot of this show is brought to you by generous jokes coffee company with the Christian perspective, this is the answer that Christians and conservatives have been looking for a coffee company that gives back causes you care about.

He helped lead the pilgrims Church of England alone in the worship at his home was captured and imprisoned and later fled with him to Holland.

He sailed with the pilgrims to America signed the Mayflower compact was elected a ruling elder Gov. Bradford wrote my dear and loving friend Mr. William Brewster had suffered much for the gospel safe and this poor persecuted church for over 35 years in England, Holland.

This will transcript all American woman Wesley will use my gifts today. Dr. Candy said he is the director of admissions at the dean of women at Mid-America Baptist theological seminary and is also affiliated with the College of Mid-America which is on the same campus with with Mid-America Baptist theological seminary, and we talked about the need for kids to get godly counsel want to go to school and and in the direction of what the study of their life.

Dr. fits what you were sharing your testimony. Are you sure that when you work. I guess we were going into college. There was a lot of influence coming into your life from something called secular humanism. Secular feminism of those rare listeners over there so many firms Dr. fits today culture new terms popping up all the sometimes we don't really know what some of those made. We are here the term secular feminism. What does that make great Christians have misunderstood word alerted where people hear different things. I may think empowerment I'm making hating their high and a historical midnight also a message or worldview or ideology. And so, as a mid bank you can study it like you thing in history you you can study World War I and World War II when you can study different when you study feminism, we talk about it in way and you can study the different ways the movement of feminism and that the first wave was back in 1800, when people were fighting for early women's right to the editing abolition of slavery access to education for women and when people talk about secular feminism on Friday May thinking that first way that happened midnight late 1800s and early 1900, or they may think in the second wave and and they talk about. Anyway, I told you I was record act.

If you think about a way has if you go to the beach. It has a uptake and activity. The Christian crescendo or craft and then a waning of activity to talk about in way because they are Wednesday and usually a momentum building and then a waning and soundly become the waning of the first wave after women received the right to bear in the near after their first ability to vote on something that was consequential for women in the med 1920s and did not turn out that kind of a waning of activity in which which makes sense because what was going on in our nation at the time and so we feminism and really start in the 1960s and early 1969 and some proponents of that wave of feminism are still around today. Like Gloria Stein and her… That probably class ideas feminism that people think about today. Betty three Dan feminine honesty was published in 1963.

That said, women are happy with the role of the client and that women cannot be happy if the work that they do is not paid work and self grade analyst that college educated women to I got married and had kids and felt like that just was not the filming for her and so we see and secondly feminism is a lot of political activism you you here in organizations like now the notion national organization for women on NARAL people fighting for abortion. Try Anderson said that the movement of second wave feminism and then we had third way for them that started early in the 1990 and it was distinct from way because women were worst thing we want to be more inclusive apparently don't hate all Marian and and it was in third wave feminism that either plaintiff or what we are seeing like that gender ideology today way feminine dad that for a woman to be empowered, she had had control of her sexuality and that he would be waning with symbols of the playboy bunny on their shirt thing that this makes me empowered hymen breaking my sexuality.

Whereas secondly feminism. They said you know they burn playboys and others thinking that with oppression and now there is a difference in how we express what is empowering and I can go on and when talking about that when you get out the word and if the movie and you can talk about what they were advancing like they were fighting for, but it is also a max age worldview and secular feminism is fighting when you think about it.

It might not.

This is actually good thing we should all be for that that movement worldview message is fighting for the social, political, quality for men and women in Christian, you can what we said before that as believers. However, the word quality as defined in anything they're saying you can't have a quality if everything is not okay not a biblical definition of the quality you can have a quality with with distinction O and in first Corinthians 12, it talks about the household of God, the church were all part of one household, one body that we have different members different gas and and so you can have equality with with distinction and feminists would say if it bears no if you have an opportunity that I don't have and that's not a quality meaning if I can't. I on the front lines in our meeting and then that's not equality and and for us with a Christian worldview.

The problem is any worldview that you click ahead of Scripture impact you see the world.

Feminism is like a world where you put glasses or contact and impact how you see things but the worldview of feminism is in direct opposition to the Christian worldview. And so feminism is as I said both a movement that is also on that page that attic heart want to go against Scripture and even as a even some of the things of the movement that I'm appreciative that I had a PhD find very grateful for anyone.

He fought for me to have a right to pursue education when a couple hundred years ago people were making the argument that women created pursue education based on our biology saying that if a woman studied certain subjects.

Her brain would overheat and she would become infertile unthankful correction of the Clark at Harvard and Harvard University made that argument, and in 1800 L and to be generous to him.

I think he was doing that to be protective when thinking that was true the wrong understanding of biology with the wrong understanding and I'm thankful for anyone to is pursuing truth, but I don't think there's any truth outside that doesn't ultimately reside in Scripture. And so I think Christian should have been arguing for the very same thing that early and were not because Genesis makes it very clear both men and women are made in the image and likeness of God. We are fully valued. Fully image bearers and and so I am thankful for that heart and that bird that was that was an anti-communism toward Scripture with a case can inhibit early sentence in the first wave editing a book called the women's Bible and sad as a believer. She said no other book has done more harm to women that the Bible Chris that's just not true. The bio rings brings freedom.

The Bible is the only place for us to find how to have a relationship with Christ and for the morning heading to movement the more I went down the rabbit hole I realized that there's a wow there were some good brought about the movement of feminism. The message behind it is damaging and so will fill the first when the when those people are saying the Bible is hurting women. There's never been a greater number of women than Jesus Christ himself.

When you look at what happened in his life at a time. Will women were treated like property in really worse than property.

The Jesus surrounded himself in a godly way about it to us. One thing that got away with with alien and altered them in a way where no man in that culture had ever done before.

How to click they would say that I Jesus Christ modeled how we should how man should relate to women and the interesting thing about Christ sometimes we think that in order not honor women. We can ever write down or from social media that out when we confront errors.

Some people are saying that misogynistic that the Christ loved Wendy and he included Dan complete chapter 8 it talks about allowing women to minister to hear on but he often confronted error and and so we see Jesus modeling how to relate to a image bearer with dignity and worth that some sometimes the way we show live by pointing to the truth and and said Jesus Christ has raised about in the first century whether you were Greek or Roman women were considered property as black not fully human in Christ definitely model during his incarnation, how he's a great kid. He said feminism is a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know really important role God and the Bible is indicated and founder of American foundation, Dr. Chris four amazing days in our nation's capital with Crystal embark on a journey of discovering the hidden much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal look and how it evolved over the century, the government and the men who helped forge this new kind of Republic and acknowledge the creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of about the fate of the mounting father Christian principles America secure your spot to join this this show is brought to you by generous Joe's coffee company with the Christian perspective, this is the answer the Christians and conservatives have been looking for a coffee company that gives back causes you care about.

We been talking about them.

It is a minute. Gender ideology.

We do what you're talking like a way to grow in the gutters and comes back again and I really think if you feel about a wallet early believe the Christian is supporting the rights of women and I've just been shot.

The movement made so much headway in the 20th century and then couple weeks ago. We've got a woman who is being nominated to serve on the United States Supreme Court and she's asked what a woman is and she can't even define it, how is the feminist movement allowed itself to be hijacked where they won't even identifies women in several interesting and I don't act on your question, but what was even more fascinating to me when I Justice Jackson answered that question that I'm not a biologist which he flies in the face of the gender ideology pain that gender is self-determined, if not matter biology and she thanked the people to question our biology, but it was very interesting to me.

Gender ideology people that are advancing that worldview are found. Chris and cultural Marxist and the LGBT Q community and within feminist them so interesting to me is third wave feminists that not wave that started in the early 1990s that were wanting to be more inclusive people of different racial backgrounds but also sexual preferences. Wayne was saying that in doing that they open the door for Caitlin Gen. Bruce Jenner to be called woman of the year by Cosmopolitan a few years ago and then it's right way and minute back to the bridge too far because I feel Bruce Jenner was that Olympic athletes you decided that he wants to be a one-man and and so some people are allotting man as brave that others are thinking. Wait a minute you know what it means to be a one then went to live his entire life is the one in doing cleaning for the things that they did. They open the door coming all the work hundreds or thousands of hundreds of years is been done to advance the causes for women and they let themselves be hijacked here to get trouble from someone I don't care Bruce Wayne: Caitlin Bruce Jenner Samantha if you took a blood sample. The DNA is male DNA and it's a slap in the face to women to call him him for was for breach of the call him a woman of the year is just wrong and I don't stand what were all these you in the 60s were burned abroad all the ire. But all the things that women were wanting to do in their silent right now in the wet their identity as women be hijacked by budget men running around pretending to be women just inspires me. I'm sorry it really been vocal about it, but they realize the hypocrisy when society allow the idea that we get to define ourselves when we moved from objective trade to subject entry and that human beings could define themselves. They open the door for this slippery slide and feminists in the second way for saying Betty freeman and others were saying that one is not born a woman that becomes a woman that we lack society define what we are today were saying we want to define. We want to take back the power of meaning open the door for the open the door for that the highest rated NCAA women's swimmer right now is a man you're starting to see pushback because we have guys that are saying now that they decided to be a warning and participating in women's sports is going to destroy women work by will yelling at you.

By allowing this idea that we get to define ourselves. A participant in practice or think about our president making a man as the assistant secretary of Health and Human Services, and I don't know what Rachel Levine name, one that Rachel Levine is Amy the first female four-star I'm rolling in the history of the US Public health service commissioned and unfortunately open the door for that they have no way to object to getting worse and not crest the problem is when you say humanity he can define themselves well why can't we name our own race. Why can't we name her age people are doing.

Naming their species, their people advocating not male or female. They're not human or mythical creatures. You have a man or woman to any lofty petition to have his and each change to be 20 years younger, and the court said that would erase 20 years of history, but this man made the argument based on this gender ideology that will if you can name your gender, why can I name my eight and the implications for what what people have set in motion, not realizing that were making this argument now. How are people to take will really get out of hand. I had a guest on the show about a month ago talking about the public school right now.

You report what people do in the five mythical creatures in an animal or students in public schools with countries that are identifying as animals and there's at least I think it was in Oregon I could be wrong about that, but there was a public school that put little boxes. Dr. Fitch in bathrooms, a young woman in this one schoolgirl told about was identifying as a cat so instead of saying this is nonsense or you're getting her mental health bill just went along with the policy and put little boxes. The bathroom so she could have a place to go to the bathroom and a little crazy. Culture has lost its mind what's happening with gender ideology in school is a tragedy and and where where we used to think I don't think as the role as adults protecting children why we have laws about age of consent and all that were saying that a child is younger for five or six can name his or her own identity or speak.

See back there trying to take parent out of the equation. I just read a story past week when there are schools that are putting at clotted transition closet. So if a young boy aged seven what I want to present as an girl how he can change his clothes at school.

Don't know that he is presenting this way or or and as you say they want to act like a different species that reason that this lunacy let's call it what it is.

Lunacy is happening because society said we get to define ourselves. We target fine, we're not the creator. We are the created we have a great designer and were just ignoring so frustrating and get my blood pressure is up as we talk will help our listeners a little bit weaker auditory good news we hear this gender term gender ideology. What is gender ideology. What is that me the great question. While ideology is just a worldview. Gender ideology is just a way of approaching life except a way of viewing life.

Three specific things that truth is relative that biology is meaningless not gender a self defined as a worldview that says all of those things and people that ascribe to this idea. This way of looking at life as I said earlier and a bunch of different camps you find people that are advocating truth is relative. Biology is meaningless universal define you finding in the LGBT community where you find them as I said with a Munson or among cultural Marxists and their motivations are all different. I use even in those spaces advocating those ideas is not basically what we have always made out the terms applicable to Joe's body or can you help our listeners understand so there so many terms W nearly all of them. One term we hear all the new law now is gender binary. What what does that term well binary to what gender people that are advancing this idea that truth is relative and gender is meaningless candidate want to get beyond a gender binary meaning that there's only male and female that there's only two options and so they're trying to destroy idea of a gender binary that there's only male and female. So what is gender fluid so it's interesting term actually was life through pop culture we get people like David Bailey, QA, gender bending or Harry styles.

They are it used to be a part of the very popular boy, Dan, and they were gender bending or gender split mean that there's not male or female, but you could present. In some cases flatware your feet Harry styles wearing interest on the cover of the magazine with Carl or he may present more and what they need very complicated. This idea of sex and gender herself. Gender fluid is an excellent take that Christmas I may use gender in this way until probably 50 or 60 years ago 50 or 60 years ago gender. In fact, meant the same thing when we were talking about biology by two psychologists wanted to diagnose mental illness and they said people that one guy Robert Stoler. He had patients who were Maren that wanted to cross-dress so he had this idea of transsexuality and would use the term gender to describe how someone expresses their stacking. He split the terms and need is a guy named John many comes along to me Jesus he was an advocate for celiac he did experiment line young children and he came up with the idea sexual orientation and gender. If we divorce the term sex from gender we can say that maybe maybe it's because of your gender that you are attracted to what you're attracted to. Whether that adult man to little boys or girls other girls or boys that are blatant so started that we definition of terms to this explosion now that you get gender fluid or pain, sexual, and all of the idea because they're trying to redefine trying to get away from God made man male and female would break up your money yesterday was Cicero name organization or individual brands like the Energizer social social in a world crowded with viewpoints of voice condition after a set of financial problems.

I'd like to invite Ray sharing his strategies like joy the United States of America has a strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know the truly important role God and the Bible is this you host and founder of American foundation, Dr. Chris four amazing days in our nation's capital with Crystal embark on a journey of discovering the hidden much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal look and how it evolved over the centuries learn about the government and the men who helped forge this new kind of Republic wanted to acknowledge the creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of about the fate of the mounting father Christian principles America.com secure your spot to join this Mid-America on gender and feminism. And if you've been so helpful to a lot of you asked me what do these different terms mean you want out before the commercial break. You said pansexual can you tell our listeners go ahead and also tells transgender so what's up pansexual and what transgender sure. I will give you. I cut a common understanding. Today, however, deep terms had evolved, so I started teaching on gender redefinition about 15 years ago I was teaching on girls ministry and determine continue to evolve right now. Sexual became popularized because there artists like Miley Cyrus used to be on a children's show on the Disney Channel and now as a recording artist. Sexual means that a person is attracted to sexually all type Miley Cyrus headed this way. She's down to get down so I don't want to be crass but that's what she said down to get down with anyone and teenage… Actual has to do with your sexually attracted to you through that would've been but many do like the matter woman go with anything around whether the crack lawyer in the Keller. They identify androgynous work or if there is a person identifies a woman adult woman identifies a young a man is attracted to other men and and so that that's what that term is an all-encompassing term and another one that you said why transgender cases actually know the word on that when when I told you that the two psychologists that were riding in the honestly one was writing in the early 1960s, one in the late 1950s trans sexual first had to do with what you are biology back to biology what you are sexually attracted to is different than your biology and into a transsexual would be a warning to at first was attracted to another woman. We use the term lesbian today.

Now in MRK and all or a transsexual could also be someone else, a warning to want to dress as a man, which we use to use the word transvestite or cross-dresser transsexual now is a broader term referring to someone to either sexually attracted or expected and fell on the way they dress or the way they identify something different than what what their biology would would say because what people are dying crack gender.

There is a black eye that came out a few years ago that was was written by Sam Kellerman and guide to gender and they expanded the term gender to talk about gender expression how you draft reflect community or masculinity gender identity how you feel, what you believe yourself to be and then on a jet.

They talk about gender biology. What years back, but they also talk about sexual orientation and romantic people you who you are romantically attracted to and it still confusing how you put all this part together, then that's how your athlete your identity yes and so to give you an example, in 2014 a stock if you sign up for Facebook which I know is I really for older people. Now you don't use it is not your back if you sign up for faith that your entering your information before 2014. Male or female. Those were the only gender option on 2014, they expanded that adding other category, and if you chose other other than male or female gave you 56 custom gender option will now stand overspending. Years later, over hundred gender options for people will say I can't find my identity and not where I feel like there's something different which sharpens when we humanity be the source of truth instead of an objective standard like God's word and saying that ever explosion of terms of ways.

I identify yourself to more that always go over the other really need understand that I'll probably booklet with the world was that of the people you mentioned earlier, LGBT Q and L building PDQ plus the keep adding so what is the difference between gay and queer. Okay so that no J usually refers to homosexual behavior.

Someone who is a man that is sexually attracted to other men clear is if they, broader term that could be someone who is not only on their sexually attracted to IA could be a man who sexually attracted to another man, or it could be a woman attracted to another woman but it also could include someone to what we refer to as bisexual, that someone who is attracted to you know a variety of both men and women clear is a kind all-encompassing term though, but it also has to do with how you express yourself so when he's clear on maybe one in his attracted to men that present wants to express her gender and a more masculine way. And so it's just kind a broad term. People you try to to advocate for their sexually attracted to you but also how the hell runs through last also became popular for someone to say they were clear as a way to identify with this community. For someone who sang their clear someone who sang well I don't want to put a definition on and so III identify I feel an advocacy for an affinity to this community on what you think definition because it involved so much what I really appreciate you sure those who do think logically that case there is a confusion about a lot of Abilify. The straight people, people who you follow God particular between the Gaia clear because it was Kimberly's good TV show about something for the queer and like a lot of people associated J meeting male homosexuals. The same thing is clear, but is not the same thing for sure that we will cut like two minutes left of the.

The Marley did in the course of the plan as you want. We just left couple minutes if you got a wrap up word of this leave the church. Dr. French walking. We as Christians do to stop this avalanche of craziness. Social coercion is going on in the country in the world today that you feel overwhelmed? See how quickly this ideology has taken root in the fact that when our president went into office. He updated the White House system for people to put their preferred personal pronoun. I embrace this ideology has been disheartening. However, believers. I always like to say we have a hope because Christ is still on his throne. We still have a mission. Our mission is to advance the kingdom we are to be salt and light and and so we we don't lose hope because we believe that truth. God set us free and I seen believers fable. We lost this battle. I don't want to agree with that but basically left this battle and and so we just gotta get out. What would we gotta find on different fronts because society has changed so much and I would say no. We have to stand for truth because truth is where freegan account and filing account believers keeping we were talking about gender ideology.

It can be easy because it's so, so far gone from God's standard and a can and sometimes we can think this is one and I use at work earlier but I wanted remember that when we talk about that we are talking about people, people that are fellow image bearers I and that God was God died for. I want to encourage believers to remember that we're talking about people that are in the grip of sin to our our confused we want to make sure we are not mocking others. We want to stand for truth that we don't want to do it in a way that is sinful either. This discussion is not just about issues. It's about people and so we have to remember that we have to speak the truth in love, and we have to stand up on what the word of God says because there are believers that are saying that gender can be self defined and gender is not self defined gender is a gift from God. It's not socially constructed. It's not self-determined God has a plan for the uniqueness of our genders and we must stand for truth. We must not leave heart because we had a mission to be salt my use of the park. Thank you so much for being here with us. Both people are more about the Christian perspective.
