Hi
I am not sure how many on this forum have actually been touched personally with the whole transgender revolution.
I have personally as my adult niece came out identifying as a male named Ben over a year ago. She has actually had a complete sex change operation and last summer I saw a picture of her in a bathing suit topless beside her mom; both of them smiling.

Although I knew about this, seeing this picture made it a little more personal, to say the least.
When I first saw the photo, I wondered who it was standing next to my wife’s cousin. She was completely unrecognizable to me, looking very much like a young adult male in good shape.

She was brought up in a Christian home and her mother now says she has no problem with this. Yet I know very much that her dad does and I do not know how he is handling the situation. He is a fan of John MacArthur and has even posted things on Facebook that John MacArthur has said on this subject.

I have not personally seen my niece for about 10 years now, when I saw her play soccer, which she was very good at back then and looking very much like a 16-17 year old teen aged girl.
To add a little bit of irony, on my wife’s side, that particular family is the only ones who went to Church and we felt very comfortable around.

Many relatives on my wife’s side would probably find this extremely strange, especially my wife’s uncle, who I can almost guarantee would frown on something like this.
Now, I am not sure how I would handle it if I was to see her at a family event, which I have been to on many occasions over the years.

I am definitely asking for prayer for the whole situation.

Tue Dec 01, 2020 8:48 PM Counted Righteous In Christ ~ R.C. Sproul [by Rick Bates]

This is a message from the late R.C. Sproul. He preaches on the imputation of Christ's Righteousness with great clarity and how it is
inseparable to justification by faith. I was blessed by this message and I hope you are also.

Tue Dec 01, 2020 12:29 PM The Christian's Special Duty of Giving Thanks - Thomas Manton [by Pilgrim]
DOCTRINE 1: ONE SPECIAL DUTY WHEREIN THE PEOPLE OF GOD SHOULD BE MUCH EXERCISED IS THANKSGIVING.

December's article of the month is a short but poignant reminder that in these troubled times which exist in many places around the world Christians, those exercised in their souls by the Spirit should be moved to give thanks to our Great God and Redeemer. Yes, there is no denying that in our frail state at present circumstances can often dominate our mind and emotions. However, it is such circumstances that we should offer up heartfelt thanksgiving for all the wonderful and marvelous benefits we have received from the hand of God. We have God's own words directing us to do so when we are down:

Quote
Psalms 50:14-15 (ASV) 14 "Offer unto God the sacrifice of thanksgiving; And pay thy vows unto the Most High: 15 And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me." and the Apostle Paul having personally known dark providences wrote: 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ASV) 18 "in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus to you-ward."

and we have several examples throughout Scripture of the faithful, being in less than ideal circumstances, offering up praise and thanksgiving in word and song, e.g. Acts: 16:22-25. Here is a short list of what we should offer up thanks for:

To God
Ps 50:14

To Christ
1Ti 1:12

Through Christ
Ro 1:8; Col 3:17; Heb 13:15

In the name of Christ
Eph 5:20

On behalf of God's servants
2Co 1:11

In private worship
Da 6:10

In public worship
Ps 35:18

In everything
1Th 5:18

Upon the completion of great undertakings
Ne 12:31,40

Before receiving food
Joh 6:11; Ac 27:35

Always
Eph 1:16; 5:20; 1Th 1:2

As the remembrance of God's holiness
Ps 30:4; 97:12

For the goodness and mercy of God
Ps 106:1; 107:1; 136:1-3

For the gift of Christ
2Co 9:15

For Christ's power and reign
Re 11:17

For the reception and effectual working of the word of God in others
1Th 2:13

For deliverance from indwelling sin, through Christ
Ro 7:23-25

For victory over death and the grave
1Co 15:57

For wisdom and might
Da 2:23

For the triumph of the gospel
2Co 2:14

For the conversion of others
Ro 6:17

For faith exhibited by others
Ro 1:8; 2Th 1:3

For love exhibited by others
2Th 1:3

For the grace bestowed on others
1Co 1:4; Php 1:3-5; Col 1:3-6

For the zeal exhibited by others
2Co 8:16

For the nearness of God's presence
Ps 75:1

For appointment to spiritual service
1Ti 1:12

For willingness to offer our property for God's service
1Ch 29:6-14

For the supply of our bodily needs
Ro 14:6-7; 1Ti 4:3-4

For all people
1Ti 2:1

For all things
2Co 9:11; Eph 5:20

As Thomas Manton rightly wrote, thanksgiving and praise are inseparable yet different. Read this short article and come to understand the difference and that giving thanks to God in all things is a matter of the heart.

Sat Nov 21, 2020 11:30 PM An Accusation against Amil [by Tom]
I heard another accusation today about Amillennialism that actually is a new one on me.

The following is basically my attempt to give the gist of what was said. I think I am giving a correct understanding.
That Amillenniallism has its roots in Platonism (philosophically) and Gnosticism (theologically).
Among the claims they made is that although the early Church eventually responded to heresy by forming doctrines such as the Trinity; they did not get rid of the influence of Gnosticism in their eschatology. They claim that Gnosticism’s influence put too much on the spiritual rather than the physical. Saying that the physical (Earth) is bad and the spiritual (heaven) is good.
At this point, I do not intend to answer them. Rather, I would like to understand the issue better. I thought the Highway would be a great resource for that.
If you know of something that would help on that front, I would appreciate your input.
Tom
