Here is another short take Christian worldview with David, we need quality accurately been talking about the program as well, which is not passed the House of Representatives and becoming before the Senate fairly soon, and this would add homosexuality and transgender is him to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and thus setting a situation a a zero-sum game between the LGBT Q movement and those who any organization or any person who won't participate in what they know to be sin is going to be a zero-sum game.

One side will win one side gonna lose and so one homosexuality and transgender is and get codified in laws part of the Civil Rights Act is going to put at jeopardy.

Those who hold to biblical morality.

Now there was an amazing speech made on the floor of the U.S. House when the equality act was being debated by Greg stupid. He's a congressman Republican from Florida and instead of getting up there in speaking about the you know the scientific studies that are transgender-ism is bad for someone's health and they have a higher rate of suicide, although things may be true Greg still be did something that I haven't heard done and probably many many years on the floor of the U.S. House. He used a biblical foundation why the equality act should be rejected.

Here's what he said.

Like most beaches you hear on this for today only to start with the truth. Deuteronomy 25 states woman must not wear men's clothing nor man where women's clothing for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this now. This verse isn't concerned about clothing styles, but with people determining their own sexual identities is not clothing or personal style that offends God, or rather the use of one's appearance to act out or take on a sexual identity different from the one biologically assigned by God at birth and his wisdom, God intentionally made each individual uniquely either mail or female.

When men or women claim to be able to choose their own sexual identity. They are making a statement that God did not know what he was doing when he created them. I'm going to quote directly from Dr. Tony Evans commentary Bible in this passage of Scripture. Men and women equally share in bearing the image of God, but he has designed them to be distinct from and complimentary toward one another.

The gender confusion that exists in our culture today is a clear rejection of God's good design. Whenever nations laws no longer reflect the standards of God that nation is in rebellion against him, and when will inevitably bear the consequences.

And I think we are seeing the consequences of rejecting God here in our country today, and this bill speaks directly against was laid out in Scripture our government through this bill is going to redefine what a woman is and what a man is they can be anyone who identifies that gender at any time you're going to single-handedly end women's sports and all of the gains for women's rights contained in title nine was passed in this body. Since 1972, single-handedly destroying women's sports in the name of equality. How ironic if biological men can compete in women's sports, then it's no longer women's sports that all we might as well just have one sports team per event and women, transgender women, men, transgender men can all compete against each other. How is that for equality if biological biological differences didn't matter.

We would never have created and funded separate teams for men and women we know science supports the idea that there are performance differences between biological men and women in competitive sports, and it's just common sense. The vast majority of Americans just not commonsense to this Democratic majority in Connecticut. Three high school female track runners have had to file a lawsuit because their title IX protections were violated by biological male athletes competing against them. They had no choice but to file suit after they were forced to compete against biological male athletes and after those biological male athletes brought home 15 women's state championship titles. I could stand up here and give you example after example of this happening throughout our country in all sports categories but I don't have near the time. If you want to protect women sports than vote against this bill argued that and then in the spirit of Romans one Jerry Nadler, the Democratic congressman had this to say in response to Greg's to be speech Mr. Silvey what any religious tradition described as God's will is no concern of this Congress. Did you hear that Minna played again.

Mr. Silvey what any religious tradition described as God's will is no concern of this Congress that my friend is exactly what is the problem. What is going wrong in our country that we have no concern as a nation. Yes, there are some people who do have concern about the things of God but those in leadership and a vast sizable part of our population has no concern for the things of God. And when that takes place there is a consequence of God's judgment for rebelling and shaking your fist in his face.

But here's the good news the country may be a sinking ship and we don't know exactly what's going to happen. God can do amazing things in the revival. Who knows for certain interaction is one away from God, but God on that sinking ship is still saving souls from being sunk. This is been a short take Christian worldview with David.
