“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” – Isaiah 5:20
It seems that more and more we are being asked to give a blind eye to things that are unnatural, like when a man wants to be a woman. How accepting have the modern youth become to perversity! No matter how much makeup he wears or how many surgeries he undergoes, George Mason’s “homecoming queen” remains a man, albeit in disguise. This is an example of the kinds of delusions Christians should avoid. By refusing to acknowledge and “just go along”, and by refusing to use the nomenclature and language of acceptance, does not mean that we being unchristian. Let your light shine especially in the darkness where it is so much needed. There’s going to be pressure to accept the lie. It’s part of what spoke of where the “truth is suppressed in unrighteousness” (Rom. 1:18ff). More and more we are being asked to close our eyes to what is evil. And the message is that Christians are hateful if they don’t shut up and accept it. Don’t be bullied to accept the lie. “Speaking the truth in love”, and love even the unlovely. There is no redemption to be found in a lie, no matter how dressed up it is.
