A Public Holiday Mocking Our Lord

We Can No Longer sit back while our God is Mocked! We must pray and speak up, Dear Christians.

Today's post is an "extra" Saturday post. It's not the typical Bible Love Notes one-minute devotion. It will take you four to five minutes to read, and I pray it will prompt you to pray. It's one of several subjects that God has laid on my heart, and I feel like Jeremiah felt in Jeremiah 20:8-9. See Like a Fire for more on that verse.

I avoid addressing issues on Bible Love Notes that are strictly political. But I'm compelled to speak up for biblical values even when they deal with politics. That's why I frequently address abortion. It's a moral issue, and Scripture strongly warns us to speak up about such things (Proverbs 24:11-12; Proverbs 31:8-9). 

A holiday that mocks God's creation design

We Can No Longer sit back while our God is Mocked! We must pray and speak up, Dear Christians.
Today I feel the need to directly address another issue that is both political and biblical: the March 31st Transgender Day of Visibility. 

Even though TDOV has been celebrated since 2009, Biden is the only president who has issued a proclamation about it. And the fact that it fell on Easter this year further highlighted its mockery of God. 

The U.S. government under Biden officially wants to celebrate and honor transgender people and they focus heavily on what they call their mistreatment. However, what they mean by mistreatment is failing to approve and promote every aspect of transgender lifestyles. And they make the unsubstantiated claim that disapproval of transgender lifestyles causes suicides and depression. Please see Don't Fall for Suicide Propaganda to read more about this tactic.

Protecting those without adult reasoning skills

Legally, adults have complete freedom to choose surgeries and drugs that alter their gender. Biblically, we know that this is harmful to their hearts and souls, and we should be unashamed to share God's loving commands.

We Can No Longer sit back while our God is Mocked! We must pray and speak up, Dear Christians.
But the White House Fact Sheet for Transgender Day last year (2023) wasn't about adults. It focused on children. It doesn't matter to our government that these children lack adult reasoning skills. They demand that we trust a child's ability to decide his gender even if he's too young to decide his bedtime. 

Instead of praising people who propose and institute laws that protect minor children from life-altering drugs and surgeries, the White House calls any limitation on these things "callous government overreach that threatens families." 

What our government is promoting is child abuse. 

Evidence does not support government claims

In order to advance their agenda, our government is ignoring the increasing evidence that many children will change their minds about transgender choices as they mature (source). In addition, the drugs given to these children have proven to cause bone loss, leaving some of them with lifelong skeletal problems in addition to permanently preventing normal sexual function (source). And surgeries performed on these children permanently remove healthy body parts.

Other countries have promoted these medical treatments long before the U.S., and here are a few of their findings:

"Finland, citing concerns about side effects, in 2020 cut back puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones to minors. Sweden followed suit in 2022 and Norway this year [2023]. Britain’s National Health Service shuttered the country’s largest youth gender clinic after 35 clinicians resigned over three years, complaining they were pressured to overdiagnose gay, mentally ill, and autistic teens and prescribe medications that made their conditions worse." (source)

"The conclusions of the systematic reviews of evidence for adolescents are consistent with long-term adult studies, which failed to show credible improvements in mental health and suggested a pattern of treatment-associated harms." (source)

It's helpful to have this evidence from completely secular studies because it reveals that the White House agenda is purposely ignoring relevant facts in their "Fact Sheets."
But, as Christians, we don't need to depend on studies. We base our beliefs on God's Word, and we fully trust that our Creator knows more than we know about gender. If you would like to read the biblical view about gender, please read A Letter Defending Male and Female and What Does Scripture Say about Gender (short article) and What the Bible Teaches about Gender (longer article).

2024 highlighted the mockery of this holiday

We Can No Longer sit back while our God is Mocked! We must pray and speak up, Dear Christians.
Transgender Day doesn't protect children. It promotes and celebrates child abuse and mocks God's loving design.

And this year that mockery was highlighted when our President proudly announced this perverse celebration on Good Friday, the day our Savior suffered for the sins of the world. And this year it was officially celebrated on the day of Christ's resurrection, when He offered man freedom from the dark things which damage men's souls. 

The President issued a 94-word Easter message and a 639-word Proclamation on Transgender Day. His transgender proclamation included remarks such as this:

"Extremists are proposing hundreds of hateful laws that target and terrify transgender kids and their families — silencing teachers; banning books; and even threatening parents, doctors, and nurses with prison for helping parents get care for their children." 

Please notice that propaganda creates fear and misrepresents opposing views with words like extremists, hateful, terrify, silencing, and threatening.

If you want to translate this from the language of propaganda into the language of truth: The current administration opposes laws that protect immature children and teenagers from making life-altering decisions before they have adult reasoning skills.

This mockery breaks my heart, and if you know Christ, it should break yours as well. Please take some time today to pray about this mockery that is destroying our nation.

Galatians 6:7: "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows."

And consider this prayer of the early disciples when Christianity was mocked in their time:

Acts 4:25-26, 29: "You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David: 'Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed one.'…Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness."

Bible Love Notes


  1. March 31st was always Transgender Day. Easter fell on Transgender Day. We are to pray for transgender people, love them, but hate the sin.
    The lies and hypocrisy of politics. That is why I am non-partisan. Don't bring politics into this. Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but God's Word shall stand forever.

    1. Hi Be-an-encourager,
      Did you read this part of the article:
      "Even though TDOV has been celebrated since 2009, Biden is the only president who has issued a proclamation about it. And the fact that it fell on Easter this year further highlighted its mockery of God."

      This year the mockery was highlighted by the day it fell on, but I never said that was the reason the holiday is ungodly. It's ungodly whatever day it's celebrated.

      Secondly, nowhere in this article do I say anything hateful about transgender people. Quite the opposite. I love them enough to warn them of the damage they are doing to their hearts, souls, and bodies. If I remained silent while they violate God's commands and separate themselves from God, that would be hateful.

      Thirdly, LGBTQ lifestyles are issues of biblical morality. Whether or not they are reflected in the goals of a certain political party doesn't change that. If they were put forth by a Republican President, I would have written about them in exactly the same way.

      I admit I'm partisan but I'm not talking about politics. I'm going to side with God when it comes to issues of morality no matter what political party mocks Him.

      Jesus make it perfectly clear:
      “Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me.” ~ Matthew 12:30
