Here is another sort to the Christian worldview.

With David we know, for those of you who are listening last week to the program likely heard the sound bite by Congressman Craig's to be from Florida when he spoke on the house floor against the passage of the equality act which is going to put homosexuality and transgender is a mess part of the 1964 civil rights act.

It will be illegal to discriminate on the basis of these two categories. Now homosexuality or gender identity immediately putting Christians who have a biblically-based worldview at odds and under threat of being prosecuted if they don't affirm or go along with homosexuality and transgender is and I want to play that soundbite again because the response to it by one of the highest ranking members in the Democratic Party.

Jerry Nadler's response is incredibly telling about where we are as a country to start with the truth.

Deuteronomy 25 states woman must not wear men's clothing nor man wear women's clothing for the Lord your God, to test anyone who does this now. This verse is a concern 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. 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 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 Mr. still be what any religious tradition described as God's will is no concern of this Congress. Let me repeat what Jerry Nadler just said in response to Greg's to be what any religious tradition ascribes as God's will is of no concern to this Congress. Unquote why that's a falsehood is because every viewpoint, every viewpoint, whether it's professed to be secular or any other viewpoint comes from a source whether it's a book, maybe it's a religious book, maybe it's an observation someone makes maybe it comes from a writer or a teacher, a scientific study.

Every viewpoint comes from a source in so-called secular sources. As Jerry Mather says we shouldn't have any religious tradition have any part of discussion here in Congress so-called secular sources have been much influenced by religion, for instance, why does Jerry Nadler believe murder is wrong.

I assume he does. After all, for animals like secularists believe, why does murder matter between humans and animals kill each other all the time that the reason Jerry Nadler believes murder is wrong. I'm assuming is because the biblical worldview has influenced his thinking, even if he completely rejects the biblical worldview, so there is a borrowing of even those who are secular from religious sources and the second point is this that secular sources are actually religious.

The worldview of secular humanism that is actually a designated religion go to a college campus and look up the list of religions on the campus you'll you often find secular humanism as a designated religion third of all it's impossible to divide or bifurcate the sacred from the secular nets actually really not that important to do so at secular that's that's sacred that's religious.

That's not really important. The important thing is is the assertion being made actually true.

Is it actually match reality is what Greg's to be declared from God's word that God designed two genders and one can't change their gender. The issue is not one of religion.

It comes from a religious belief, but the question is, the issue is, is it the truth is he actually speaking the truth that there are just two genders and you can't change your gender, because if what he said is true, then it needs to be embraced otherwise. If you reject what you said you were going to be following a lie, a falsehood and that is exactly the problem there too many people today in our country who have believed the lie about the transgender issue. The homosexual issue in the church is not doing enough to counteract it.

This is been a short take on the Christian worldview with David.
