Editorial – Winter 2016

Once one abandons belief in the God of the Bible, one loses touch with Him and with reality. A relatively early feminist heroine was Simone de Beauvoir (1908-86) who published The Second Sex to much academic and popular acclaim. Here she asserted that “One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman” – yet another case of nonsense the confused existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre, as well as a number of lesbian love affairs.

The word “they” has taken on genderless singular proportions. “A person does something because they want to” – which is rather bad grammar, apart from anything else. In fact, one group of American lexicologists claimed that “they” now should be used to designate a “genderqueer” person who identifies as neither male or female. Not surprisingly, it was proclaimed to be the word of the year.

Gender no longer reflects biological reality, but ‘choice’. Contrast this to the majestic simplicity of the biblical revelation: ‘So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them’ (Gen.1:27) – which is endorsed by Christ in Matthew 19:4.Peter Barnes 08

If school children are to be taught to be sexuality, there is no limit to the indecency and depravity which will be unleashed. “God gave them up”(Rom.1:24, 26, 28) is a terrifying expression. Gender is now regarded as fluid, but the only thing that is fluid is now it is a matter of choice. We can even have two virginities – one for the male experience and one for the female. Make no mistake, once the unreality genie is let out of the bottle, it will be an horrendous task to put them(?) back in it.
