The Persecution Of Today’s Christians

Hey guys 🙂

Long time no post but today I have to let this out because it’s been eating at me for awhile now.

I am not typically one to make waves but when I feel like my morals, values and beliefs are being stomped on simply because I won’t conform to certain mainstream thinking, I find it hard to sit back and let it happen.

Our current world preaches love, acceptance, free speech, self expression and unity…a global joining of hands. Yet as a Christian, in today’s society, I feel I might as well be burned at the stake for what I believe in and identify with.

My fellow brothers and sisters, this should come as no surprise. We are warned in the Bible that this would happen. As we prepare and wait for God’s return, we will be persecuted for what we believe more and more each day. It’s already happening at an alarming speed.

2 Timothy 3:12 

Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,

We are being pushed into a global agenda that claims we should all accept the other for who they are, what they are, who they love, yet somewhere along the way, the Christian community got left out of this equation.

As a Christian, it seems as long as I am willing to shut up and put up with mainstream opinion, it’s Ok to be Christian. If I speak out, or promote an opinion that does not line up with the majority, I am unaccepting, unloving, unreasonable. I am a bigot, evil, selfish, ignorant, intolerant and the list could go on but I think you get my point.

One agenda currently at the front of it all is the transgender movement. Along with this movement, there is a genderless movement. Some people are identifying as aliens (no joke)

Just recently, the first birth certificate with no gender identification was issued right here in Canada. What has the world come to? It’s one thing to ask kids to decide which gender they most identify with before their first year of school, (which I don’t agree with) but to not even give the child a choice either way?

A new born child. They will never know or understand what it means to be a man or woman or even switch that role if they so choose. The parents made the decision of genderless for them before the child’s first words!

Where do we draw the line?

In other Canadian news, Nemis Quinn Mélançon-Golden of Montreal is an 8 year old drag queen. His parents (is it Ok to attach a gender label on this? I’m never sure anymore…) help him prepare for his shows.

I am going to tell you something…

At one point in time, I surrounded myself with many gay friends. I still have friends that are gay but what I am saying here is different….I was very much entrenched in the culture and lifestyle although not gay myself, I felt accepted in a time where I felt I didn’t belong anywhere and I don’t have any regrets there but I draw the line when you start putting kids in very adult and explicit situations.

One of my friends at the time was a drag queen. I used to go to shows thinking it was all great fun but after awhile you start to see the dark side of the drag community.

It’s derogatory in nature. If you think women are the stereotypical “catty” types, hang out with a drag queen for a day…or watch Rupaul’s Drag Race and listen to the insults and competitive low blows fly. It’s not completely exaggerated for TV folks, it is an accurate portrayal of a day in the life of a drag queen. At least from what I saw when I was around it.

The clubs I would go to were riddled with drugs and alcohol and yes most clubs are whether or not it’s a gay club. My point? You think it’s cute to encourage your 8 year old son to dress like a prostitute, be exposed to drag culture and perform provocative shows because “that’s who he is” Do you honestly know what you are exposing your child to? At 8 years old, does your child really know who they are?

No child on this planet should have to be exposed to explicit, adult content. This is not an innocent game of dress up. If you have seen a drag show it’s R rated at best. Highly sexual and explicit in nature yet the world rejoices as this little boy finds his identity as a drag queen. Aww, how adorable… This sounds more like child abuse to me.

In saying all this, I still come out of this the bad guy in most people’s eyes. Why? Because I don’t agree? I don’t have to agree. Just because I don’t agree does not make me a hater.

I am not interested in hate and this post is not about hate but if an 8 year old boy gets to be a drag queen and that is adored, encouraged and accepted then as a 33 year old woman, I am allowed to be a Christian and talk about it openly. In fact, I can talk about whatever I want…can’t I?

It works both ways (supposedly). The double standard and hypocrisy that exists around these ever changing agendas and forced acceptance is mind blowing.

You can be anything you want. Literally anything. If I wanted to identify as a toaster right now I could and probably get my birth certificate changed to prove I am in fact a toaster…but a Christian? Oh no, anything but that! That’s just pushing things too far…

1 Peter 4:4 

With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you;

 

Take Care and God Bless ❤

  1. Freedom of speech means freedom to speak what is currently not considered “hate speech.” Tolerance is the order of the day–except for Christians. In these last days, we have the obligation to be a witness for Messiah, yet we are also required to speak the truth in love. We are obligated answer truthfully when asked, but also cautioned that in such days as this prudence means being silent. We, in America, have yet to experience the persecution experienced in other countries by our Believing Brothers and Sisters in Messiah. But we shall do so more and more as the time grows short. May G-d have mercy upon us. May G-d bless you, keep you, and may His Light Shine always upon you.

    • Thank you for sharing your love Kristi Ann ❤ It's comforting to know I am not alone on this subject.

      Prayer is powerful and those of us who wish to follow God's word struggle everyday to keep that integrity. May all our prayers be heard and may God guide us through these troubled times. It is only going to get worse as time goes on.

      Just as we need God now, as the days go on we are going to have to be willing to face even more persecution. We surrounded by constant threats to our faith but in the end those of us who hang on to God will pull through and rejoice. ❤

      Much love to you! ❤
