Does God Have Attitude?
By J.L. Robb
“You have a real attitude problem!”
I said that to one of my kids a few years ago, along with a few other choice words; and she stopped speaking to me for six months. I suppose I could write a book about the things you just don’t say to someone.
Attitude is an interesting phenomenon, because people and God seem to be a lot different. If a person has a grumpy attitude, they hardly ever have a congenial attitude. If a person has a deceptive attitude, they seldom have a trustworthy attitude. If a person is always depressed, they are hardly ever happy. There are exceptions.
God seems to have a complete handle on attitudes because He goes from one attitude to another, in the blink of an eye. His attitudes are forever changing. He is judgmental and then is forgiving; He can be harsh and then is loving and tender; He can punish and then hug; He can love and then hate.
There are many believers who think God cannot hate. There are churches today that teach that God loves everyone, no matter what their attitude or lifestyle; but that just isn’t true, according to His book. It is as though to some of today’s churches, Leviticus 20 was never written, like maybe God did not really mean it.
“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” Paul
To suit our own desires. Do we do that?
Headline: NY POST
Mother and son are becoming father and daughter
Sometimes our children lead the way. Corey, 14, socially transitioned from boy to girl in the past few years. She gave her Mom, Eric(a) the courage to begin her own transition from female to male. They are moving in opposite directions but toward their true selves. After her first shot of testosterone Erica said she finally felt “complete”.
Corey was age 10 when she decided she wanted to be a boy, which is now called transitioning. Her mom encouraged her. This is called enabling instead of nurturing, according to the Bible. It is also child abuse.
Then her mom, Erica, discovered that she really felt more like Eric. Now, with a little medical expertise, mom and daughter actually seem to believe that they can be the opposite sex. That of course means they can use the Men’s Room instead of the Womens’ Room, but that now seems to be part of the progressive-social indoctrination that guys wanting to be gals is normal and acceptable. A guy in the Ladies’ Room is no big deal it seems. Get over it. It is a societal attitude. Brainwashing is another term. Of course, we who disagree and think that DNA evidence shows, once a guy, always a guy are labeled as phobic and bigoted, racist, misogynistic, Nazi.
Can you imagine what your mom or dad would have said if, at age 10, you asked for transitioning hormones so you could be the opposite sex? What if you wanted to be a catfish? I would still be in orbit.
When Paul wrote to Timothy and stated, “… to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear…”, what was he saying?
Paul was saying exactly what we are doing. If now we disagree with certain laws and morals, especially those dealing with sexuality, sexual behavior and abortion, we simply change the laws with a little marketing. We hire teachers and experts to tell us what our itching ears want to hear. Hollywood has been a great marketing tool for decadence.
The Founding Fathers who founded the most moral, generous and compassionate country in world history, warned the future generations of this falling away from Christian teaching. That is why they endorsed and demanded the Bible, Old and New Testament, be taught in the education system to guide the children. The lady above is guiding her children, according to progressive-think; but she is guiding them to despair. It should be child abuse instead of, “Oh, how cool is that?”
In the case above, our experts have decided the Founders missed the boat on helping kids through God, and apparently the Founders misinterpreted what they said and wrote about the Separation Clause. Unfortunately, today’s lawyers have helped us out.
But we have surrounded ourselves with those who Paul was warning us to avoid, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
Pandora’s box has been opened and is running full-speed ahead.
We have gathered together around us, here and all over the world, teachers and preachers, experts and philosophers who tell us what we want to hear. If it feels good, do it. There are no rules. Jesus was a socialist and anything goes.
Not according to the Bible.
That philosophy, it’s all about me and feeling good, came to play in the mid-sixties during the Vietnam Conflict. Many college kids, we were the draft-pool, wanted to make love not war when a mere ten years earlier, Ozzie and Harriet slept in twin beds! How fast falling away happens.
According to cnsnews.com, children raised by gay parents have great difficulties, including depression at a 50% higher rate than children raised by heterosexual parents. A report/study by CBS News reports that children raised by gay parents have many more emotional problems. The NY Times has reported that children raised by gay parents have moderately more problems. All these reports have been denigrated by gay-rights “experts.” The experts tickle the ears of the falling, telling them that wrong is right and right is wrong.
The problems suffered by others, our children, mothers, fathers and siblings, because of a desire by society to relabel moral values seem to be of little concern to what Hollywood and the present-day media believe society has become and should remain.
So what have we done? We, society, have accommodated. We have shown a more tolerant attitude than that of the Founders, not quite so Christian as it once was. We have enabled what was considered decadence a single generation ago. We hire experts to tickle our fancy, like the American Psychological Association who said this in 2004:
Research suggests that sexual identities (including gender identity, gender-role behavior, and sexual orientation) develop in much the same ways among children of lesbian mothers as they do among children of heterosexual parents (Patterson, 2004a). Studies of other aspects of personal development (including personality, self-concept, and conduct) similarly reveal few differences between children of lesbian mothers and children of heterosexual parents (Perrin, 2002; Stacey & Biblarz, 2001; Tasker, 1999). However, few data regarding these concerns are available for children of gay fathers (Patterson, 2004b). Evidence also suggests that children of lesbian and gay parents have normal social relationships with peers and adults (Patterson, 2000, 2004a; Perrin, 2002; Stacey & Biblarz, 2001; Tasker, 1999; Tasker & Golombok, 1997). The picture that emerges from research is one of general engagement in social life with peers, parents, family members, and friends. Fears about children of lesbian or gay parents being sexually abused by adults, ostracized by peers, or isolated in single-sex lesbian or gay communities have received no scientific support. Overall, results of research suggest that the development, adjustment, and well-being of children with lesbian and gay parents do not differ markedly from that of children with heterosexual parents.
The experts tickle our ears.
However, eleven years later the American Psychological Association has had to revise their research. The July 28, 2015, headline from APA has changed: Children of Same-Sex Parents Face Challenges, but Will Be OK
Only many of the children have grown up to have numerous sexual and sexual identity problems. One needs to look no further than the growth of the transitioning community. For whatever reason, one element of society believes that everyone has the right to be happy in America, but that is not so. Citizens have the right to pursue happiness, not the right to be happy. Additionally, of someone’s right to pursue happiness infringes on the right of another to pursue the same, who wins?
I do not believe that God thinks too much of transitioning and our other social-sexual fetishes that society is enabling. The growth of pedophilia and sex slavery industries is phenomenal.
The first time I read the Bible and got to the Sodom and Gomorrah story, it was astounding that the entire population seemed to be sexual perverts except for a handful. I remember wondering how that could happen to an entire metropolis? We are watching it happen.
God does have an attitude, and I’m thinking we are about to see a harsh but just side. Society has spent too much time telling Him he is wrong about some things.
