Bruce Jenner is a seriously misguided in his thoughts and actions. No one is born as someone else or as another sex. No one born a male was meant to be a female. It’s not like God flipped the wrong switch or forgot to pull the lever or missed pushing the button determining the sex of a fetus. All are born as they should be, male or female. No one is born the wrong sex. The infection and dementing power of sin influences people into taking paths that they wouldn’t take had they not been left inside their own heads unchecked.
The part of this that is almost as confusing is the backlash when people disagree with what happened. Bruce Jenner decided to become another Kardashian and we are supposed to not think he is out of his mind. Poor Drake Bell, only expressing an opinion about what Jenner did, is attacked on Twitter for saying that Bruce will always be Bruce to him. He would not embrace the reinvented Bruce, and people hated him for it. The sad part is people were calling Bell irrelevant when their reaction to his tweet made him relevant, for about ten minutes.
What happened to “freedom of speech”? What happened to being able to express an opinion about something? It seems that an opinion cannot be made if that opinion contradicts the current popular trend in this culture. We are to embrace the perversion and delusional actions of anyone and allow them to be. We are not to speak out against sin but to accept it as progress. Our society seems to be in a constant state of evolution, evolving to the state of any perversion is good and any opinion or appeal to the Creator’s original intent is bad. Paul spoke about this at the end of the first chapter Romans.
The world is embracing the twisted alternate reality brought about by unchecked sin. Not just unchecked, but fully engaged in changing the perspective of all of society. God no longer has a place in our daily life. We have been able to figure out how everything is supposed to be, through government programs and the mainstream media and the movers and shakers in Hollywood. Their perversions are meant to be accepted as mainstream. But we must persist to resist the temptation to approve of the twisted path our culture seems to have taken.
As Christians, we are to resist sin and to speak out against its perversion. But how active are we supposed to be? Are we supposed to be in politics fighting against this progression of perversion, or are we to remain quiet and keep to ourselves, become our own little subculture separate from the rest of society? This is a topic I may delve into deeper at some other time because how we respond to the twisting of the Creator’s original intention is important. But for right now, this preposterous notion that it is wrong to hold a negative opinion about anything that the influential part of society puts forth is more anti-American than restricting free speech.
