Censored for calling a Man a Man; a justice unable to define a Woman


Wow, there's been a lot of news this week that is enough to make your head spin. Thankfully, some of it involves people taking a stand for biblical sanity. I'll start with the good. The Babylon Bee has been locked out of Twitter because they posted an article awarding "Man of the Year" to the man who calls himself Rachel Levine.

This was a satirical piece in response to TIME magazine naming Levine (the Biden administration's second-highest health official) their "Woman of the Year." Thankfully, the owner/editor of the Babylon Bee refuses to back down and bend the knee to the woke mob by referring to a biological male as a woman.
Along those lines, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Biden's nominee to become the newest Justice of the Supreme Court, refused to answer the question of "What is a woman?" when it was posed to her by Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee. Judge Brown replied that she doesn't know how to define what a woman is, stating, "I'm not a biologist."

This is the epitome of the moral relativism that pervades our society. It is a mark of all philosophies that rise up against the knowledge of God, in that they desire to deconstruct everything that the Creator has set in order. They think they are wise and clever, but they are actually fools who have rejected God's truth (1 Cor. 1:19).
Twitter blogger Ron Coleman said, "The logical and moral absurdities of pretending not to know how to define the two sexes are bad enough--very, very, bad. This is especially bad for someone writing opinions involving the myriad laws premised on the parties' sexes." Further, he said, "It involves a fundamental break with reality," and "While our Republic has survived many foolish judges and justices, this choice manifests a serious deficiency of character--an infinitely plastic morality." I found that to be a well-worded assessment.

Our culture's morality is "plastic" in that it can be bent and shaped to fit the carnal desires of the individual. But the moral law set forth in God's Word is based on His holy character, and therefore does not change. Indeed, Jesus said that Scripture cannot be broken (John 10:35).
As Bereans, we must hold the line on objective truth. We are the salt of the earth and light of the world (Matt. 5:13-16). If we do not confront the lies with the truth, we will not preserve anything from further decay, nor will we point others to the truth of the gospel that they desperately need to save them from their impending, eternal destruction.
