A Rebuttal to recent ‘Conversations’

Addressing one Churchᵃ

leader’s claim to relentless

pursuit of Jesus…

A ‘Conversationᵇ’

implies discourse, back-and-forth

or else it’s just Pride.

If queerness is wrong,

what on earth did Jesus mean –

entering women?

Is it not true that

He makes us two-spirited

on invitation?

Consider the Source,

for the LORD does not look well

on WORD taught in vain;

It is not I who

rebukes you but our Savior

who demands better;

Instead of stripping

Scripture of context, try this:

Search in earnestness.

Where does my God say

Church has a right to know my

genitalia?

Most Sincerely,

A Genderqueer Member, baptized

Viewer Notes:

ᵃ – Emmanuel Church | https://www.eclife.org/

ᵇ – “Conversation # 2 | Conversations | Pastor Danny Anderson | Emmanuel Church Online Message.” Emmanuel Church, 15 Mar. 2022, https://youtu.be/yYp6CqEIe70. Accessed 24 Mar. 2022.

This video should include a trigger warning for audience members in the LGBTQ community. Its message includes a discussion of ‘transgenderism’ as defined by the Head Paster of Emmanuel Church, whose definition and expounding message fundamentally misrepresents and misinterprets the spiritual, cultural, experiential, and philosophical facts of trans and nonbinary genders. The message argues that (1) Gender and biology are inseparably linked; (2) Gender cannot be assigned and is biological fact; (3) There is purpose and order in binary gender.

The message argues that individuals should, “Let your biology determine your gender identity,” citing the following as scripture evidence supporting the ‘moral law’ of binary gender:

  • The Bible (ESV)
  • Proverbs 3:5-6
  • Luke 9:23, Genesis 1:27-28
  • Matthew 19, Genesis 2:24
  • Deuteronomy 22:5
  • Psalm 139:14

Author Afterthoughts:

“Is [ fill-in-the-blank ] wrong?”

Queries such as these ^

are self-fulfilling prophesies:

When answer given comes across prescriptive,

it may’of been the question was begging;

First instead as open-ended,

then let the heart and mind discern in searching.
