Has the Nation Gone Mad?
Texas had a little drama this week. Remember as you read this that Texas is considered one of our most conservative states. Millions of people in Texas will tell you they are a Christian and the state has the reputation of having a strong Christian heritage and atmosphere. Well… then how does something so immoral and culturally-left happen in a state like Texas? Here is what occurred:
On October 21st, a jury in Dallas, Texas, decided that a father, Jeffrey Younger, could not prevent the gender-transition therapy of his 7-year-old son, James. James’ mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, is a Dallas-area pediatrician who said that her son has been acting like a girl since he was 3. James has a twin brother, by the way. James’ transition to a girl would mean the use of hormone-blockers to prevent puberty, which is chemical castration. Did I say he is 7-years-old? The ramifications of this for his life are grotesque to think about. (Read more here.)
But, all was not lost. A couple of days later, Governor Abbott said the state would investigate the situation as a child abuse case through both the State Attorney Generals’ office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Senator Ted Cruz said, “A 7-year-old child doesn’t have the maturity to make profound decisions like this. The state of Texas should protect this child’s right to choose—as an informed, mature person—and not be used as a pawn in a left-wing political agenda.” (Read more here.)
Then, on the 24th, the presiding judge in the case, Judge Kim Cooks, overturned the jury decision, and granted joint custody to the parents, including joint medical decisions. No gender transition company could perform the transition process without the consent of both parents, in other words. (Read more here.) There has also been an outcry from the public in Texas to exact legislation that prevents a medical procedure of this kind before a child is 18 and can decide for themselves. To say it was a shocking week in Texas is an understatement, but it is sadly unlikely to be the last case of its type in the nation. We must pray!
“From the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” (Mark 10:6; KJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Intercede for James. His mother has treated him as female since he was 3 years-old. His psyche needs to be healed.
- Pray for his father, Jeffrey, to have influence in James’ life. Pray that he would know the Lord and throw his whole trust on Jesus to minister to his son.
- Ask the Lord to introduce Himself to Dr. Georgulas, James’ mother. Ask that scales be removed from her eyes and from her heart.
- Intercede into this spiritual war against gender. God has created each of us exactly the way He desired us to be. Society is becoming deeply deceived about this. Some people are trying so hard to accept gender-confusion as normal, but this is something we must stand strongly against, especially where it concerns children. It is deception and child abuse.
A prayer you can pray:
Father God, You are a good and loving Father. You are a wise and perfect Creator. You knew exactly what You were doing when You created mankind as male and female. The devil has hated that from the beginning. He has now brought society to a place that people are questioning their gender. It seems impossible to think that something so basic and simple could be questioned. This is a demonically-designed attack against humanity. Save us, Lord. Save all these children, like James, from their deceived parents. I cannot even think about how James’ life would play out once he becomes an adult and realizes the effects of this abuse on his body. Children are not social experiments! We pray for James today. Help Him, Jesus. Thank you for Judge Kim Cooks who has helped to save him from his mother’s deception. Show James the wonder and benefit of being a boy who will be a strong man someday. Reveal Yourself to his dad, Jeffrey. Teach him how to be an impactful father and great male role model for his sons. Save Dr.Georgulas. She needs to know You, so she can realize what a tragedy she almost brought on her son. She needs You, Jesus. Unveil her eyes and her heart. Do this across the land. So many are walking in this strange deception. So many are giving into it. National deception is even worse than personal, as the group is afraid not to think independently and righteously for fear of being rejected. Oh, God, we cry out to You to save us in Jesus’ name! Amen.
Our children will not be made social experiments in America, but they will be honored as God created them to be—biologically male and female.
