July 31, 2023 DDF Liberty/Old Age & World View

This is funny:

I did a push-up today

Well, I actually fell down, but I had to use my arms to get back up,

So, close enough

Now I need chocolate

Anyone else out there feeling old?

I also dread when something rolls under a chair as I used to be able to pop, lock, and drop it in my youth.

Now, I just groan, pop, and crack very loudly. Then I take a long breath and plan out in my head the standing

up part. Just saying that getting old sucks. I still exercise 5 days a week, but I think I threw out my hip,

so I had to google low-impact exercise videos. Uggg, my body. If you feel anything like I do then crack

something in my honor.

So, here is another piece of advice I read this past week:

“It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decision than by putting those

decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong” (Thomas Sowell)

The reason this quote stood out because I have been reading some real contradictory borderline oxymoronic

so let’s see if you can guess who said these:

Quote 1:

“Adolescence is hard and puberty is hard. What if you’re going through the wrong puberty?

What if you inside feel that you are female, but now you’re going through male puberty?”

Quote 2:

“I have no regrets because if I had transitioned when I was young then I wouldn’t have my children.

I can’t imagine a life without my children.”

U.S. Assistant Secretary of Health, R. Levine

So, this leads me to believe that the aggressive agenda to encourage minors to use puberty-blockers,

cross-sex hormones, and disfiguring surgeries knowing that all these destroy the ability to conceive or bear

children later as adults. Sterilization of minors is just not okay.

Now, let’s all take a look at Canada. This logically will trickle down to the U.S. I thought the article

was a really bad joke, but it's true. They have a government program called Dying with Dignity-It’s your life.

It’s your choice. Okay assisted suicide has been around a long time, but not targeting “mature minors.”

WTH? A minor can apply to assisted suicide with the pretense that that minors are mature enough to end it all.

We have preventive programs that help minors not kill themselves, but here we go. 

So, it just gets stranger as a transgender adult is fighting with the Canadian government for assisted suicide that

they did not approve. This person is seeking to be euthanized to escape trauma from transition surgery. 

Why are these issues important? Because our world view dictates our behavior. Our  worldview tells us the

truth of what is influencing society in all parts and facets that extends from the individual to the collective.

Our worldview is the way we see life formed by our culture, how we were raised, books we read, education,

and the media we are exposed to. 

So you have two options: Biblical Worldview and Moral Relativism Worldview

Biblical Worldview:

-we believe that absolute truths come from the Word of God

-we don’t base our beliefs on our emotions

-we are created by a personal God

-our beliefs are based on what the Bible teachers

Moral Relativism:

-considers nothing sacred

-people are more “spiritual” so morals and ethical standards are customized

-belief there are no absolute truths

-we are just random products of an evolutionary process

-born good, so only bad because we are products of our environment

***Side note: there is no such thing as a Liberal Christian-that is just moral relativism under a new name.

You can’t say you have fundamental faith and live with liberal views and actions.

“I do not think the devil cares how many churches you build, if only you have lukewarm preachers and people

in them” (Charles Spurgeon). (links to the articles of the stories from above are on my blog with extras-also my notes

from my Constitution class)

This song just made me pray for those who feel lost, broken, confused, and are hurting.

“Perfectly Loved” by Rachael Lampa. The lyric I wish for all our kids today:

Who said that you weren’t beautiful

And that you didn’t belong in your own skin
