Join us in today’s prayer and devotion: -Praying Thru Proverbs: 4: 10-19:

10 Hear, my son, and accept my words,
that the years of your life may be many.
11 I have taught you the way of wisdom;
I have led you in the paths of uprightness.
12 When you walk, your step will not be hampered,
and if you run, you will not stumble.
13 Keep hold of instruction; do not let go;
guard her, for she is your life.
14 Do not enter the path of the wicked,
and do not walk in the way of the evil.
15 Avoid it; do not go on it;
turn away from it and pass on.
16 For they cannot sleep unless they have done wrong;
they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness
and drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
19 The way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know over what they stumble. –ESV

-Martina Navratilova: Allowing Trans Athletes Compete Is ‘Insane and Cheating’

by Dr. D ~ February 20th, 2019

LGBT activist and professional tennis legend Martina Navratilova has come out against allowing trans female athletes compete as women. From the Blaze:

After promising to research the topic further, she penned an op-ed on Sunday reaffirming her views and calling it "insane and cheating" to allow a man to switch genders in order to "win everything in sight."

In December, Navratilova tweeted, "You can’t just proclaim yourself female and be able to compete against women. There must be some standards, …

Online outrage ensued. The nine-time Wimbledon champion — who in 1981 became one of the first prominent worldwide athletes to come out as bisexual (and then subsequently as lesbian), and who has long campaigned for LGBT rights — was labeled "transphobic"…

<Read the whole article>

Response: Martina, like the boy who declared that the king was wearing no clothes, is stating what should be obvious. Someone born genetically male who competes as a trans ‘woman’ has a natural advantage in strength. However, when it comes to progressive activism, the truth doesn’t matter if it gets in the way of a PC agenda.

Navratilova, a long time LGBT activist herself, has ironically been called “transphobic” for stating the obvious and asking for standards.  She was a pioneer in LGBT rights yet others have now attacked her online for her rational views and she was even kicked out of a LGBT rights group that she was part of for years.

For decades LGBT activists asked for toleration. But lately very little toleration is extended to anyone that does not wholly accept their views and lifestyles. It is shocking that one of their own long-time heroes is now receiving this kind of intolerant treatment.              *Top

keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom; get insight;
do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will keep you;
love her, and she will guard you.
7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,

9 She will place on your head a graceful garland;
she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.” –ESV

16 Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman,
from the wayward woman with her seductive words,
17 who has left the partner of her youth
and ignored the covenant she made before God.[a]
18 Surely her house leads down to death
and her paths to the spirits of the dead.
19 None who go to her return
or attain the paths of life.

20 Thus you will walk in the ways of the good
and keep to the paths of the righteous.
21 For the upright will live in the land,
and the blameless will remain in it;
22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land -NIV

-Federal Judge: University Can’t Single Out and Ban Christian Student Group

by Dr. D ~ February 12th, 2019

University of Iowa

Colleges and universities all across America have been banning Christian groups for demanding that there leaders be—wait for it—actual Christians. One group at the University of Iowa sued the university and won their case in a District Federal Court. From the Christian Post:

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the University of Iowa can’t selectively enforce its non-discrimination policy on a Christian student group that requires that its leaders abide by a Christian statement of faith.

U.S. District Court Judge Stephanie M. Rose issued an injunction barring the university from enforcing its human rights policy against student group Business Leaders in Christ (BLinC) so long as the school continues to allow other registered student organizations to have leadership requirements that also are deemed to violate the university’s policy.

<Read the whole article>

Response: The authorities at Iowa were using their ‘non-discrimination’ policy as an excuse to single out and actually discriminate against Christian student groups. We have pointed out in previous articles that Christian student groups are being discriminated against while the policy is not enforced on other groups.

For instance, Muslim student groups have never been challenged even though they may require all of their leaders to be practicing Muslims. Also, political student groups continue to be allowed to choose leaders that support their main tenants and reasons for existence.  in addition, fraternities and sororities continue to be allowed to disregard the gender discrimination part of the policy.

University officials are claiming that they are going to notify all campus student groups and expect them to comply with the policy or be expelled off campus. The lawyers supporting BLinC in their lawsuit (Becket) do not believe that they will follow through however:

  “It is very unlikely because the university would have to tell fraternities and sororities that they have to integrate and sports clubs would have to integrate.  Military support groups will have to allow people who do not support the military or disagree with the military to be leaders. It is very unlikely to happen. If it did happen, we would still challenge that decision.”

It will be interesting to see how the administrators will ultimately respond to this ruling. The university is also being sued by InterVarsity Christian Student Fellowship and their case is expected to receive a similar ruling.                *Top

2 My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
