You’ve no doubt heart about the gender debate in Florida..
Legislation has been passed to prevent teachers from teaching sexual topics to 4-8 year olds.
Florida educators (not all of them) are not happy about this.
Disney is also one of the largest vocal opposers to the bill.
A government, a corporation, an education system that seeks to teach these things to children aren’t protecting them, they are harming them.
Florida has now revoked Disney’s 50-year old tax protections..
An article by Mark Hemingway points out this is sexual abuse.
Hemingway writes the sexualization and abuse of children was common-place in the ancient world.
The rise of Christianity created moral intuitions we now take for granted.
Headline – Finnish Supreme Court doesn’t consider sexual abuse of a 10 year old as rape.
Women and children were valued less in the Ancient Greek world.
Progressives today have the same values as Ancient Greeks.
Jesus came and placed value on children.
What progressives are pushing today is nothing more than child abuse. It’s criminal and demands repentance.
What’s going on in Canada… spiritually?
The most concerning religious group in Canada is…
All religious groups surveyed viewed Evangelicals as the group most damaging to society.
74% try to adhere to their religious beliefs.
Why are Christians the one always criticized? Why not Buddha Why not Allah?
It’s because those other gods don’t exist and they know it.
56% of Evangelicals in Canada say they feel ostracized and shut out.
1 in 5 Canadians are classified as unbelievers.
80% are open to spirituality. That’s encouraging.
Todd had an encounter with an unbelieving waitress that was grateful for peaceful dialogue.
Talking with people, listening to them will get you farther than pronouncing their beliefs ridiculous immediately.
A large survey in Canada reveals Canada isn’t a very religious country.
63% of Evangelicals in Canada say they attend church regularly.
Regular is defined as once per month.
Those who identify as evangelicals in Canada say they regularly feel God’s presence.
What does God’s presence feel like?
Evangelical lingo these days is pretty mystical.
“That was a God thing”. “It was just a God moment”
Aren’t they all?
Our feelings don’t inform our knowledge. Our knowledge informs our feelings.
41% of those who identify as Hindu say they feel God’s presence at least once a month.
What do you do with that?
This another opportunity for Evangelicals in Canada.
Engage people with an open ear and desire for a conversation.
Feelings based evangelism leads to false converts who don’t stay the course.
Bad news or good news?
The President and First Lady hosted an “easter” party at the White House.
Biden never mentioned Christ during the “easter” party.
While some see this as bad , it is actually good news.
We shouldn’t desire for non Christians to invoke anything Christian.
Our faith should be so precious to us.
Paul spoke for his great love for Jewish people.
He didn’t hate Jewish people.. He evangelized them first, before the Gentile.
Jesus was Jewish .. He didn’t teach hate for Jewish people.
The point – We don’t mistreat or hate anybody.
God is not finished with Jewish people.
He still has a plan for His people.
Because Jewish people were involved in the crucifixion of Jesus doesn’t mean we crucify them.
