“Sincerely Your’s,” a very nice way to end and sign a letter. When the receiver of the letter reads this, they naturally assume that the writer had every intention of the readers good in mind. It seems to reflect an honesty, a forthrightness, an openness. The reader assumes their own benefit has been considered in every way. Or…could it be that the writer is attempting to throw you off and distract you from the real intentions and the real goals? In this case, not only is the writer using a false sincerity, but is also sincerely wrong in what is being promoted.
Such is very much the case in all of the recent hyped up promotion of the LGBTQ+ groups, especially as it relates to gender identity and the teaching of our children. Pressure has been applied to School Boards across the country (and many other countries also) to deregulate the use of restrooms, locker rooms, etc. The goal has been to allow a student of either gender (male or female) to use either and any of these facilities according to their current identity rather than by their God-given gender at birth. This has caused a plethora of problems, lawsuits and privacy issues everywhere it has been implemented.
Students have been the most affected as they are the ones most often caught in these difficult situations. Following their school’s leadership and their parent’s non-involvement and non-leadership, students are constantly being confused and embarrassed by this terrible shift in our culture.
However, we are beginning to see some push back to these very bad decisions and the confusion they have caused. Some leaders are rightly finding that it is constitutionally correct to require the use of bathrooms and locker rooms for the gender of birth by all. Apparently common sense, real science and true morality is coming back into play as everyday citizens are realizing the insincere ploys that have been used against our children and citizens in general.
The importance of knowing the truth of God’s Word and teaching these truths to our children, politicians, school boards and teachers shows its importance in that when we fall for the lies of the world and neglect to stand firm against them, then the collapse of society and the family is just around the corner. It is the way of sin every time. “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Him who is the Head, that is Christ.” (Ephesians 4: 14-15).
Teach, encourage and model before your fellow believers the importance of knowing God’s Word and trusting Him to bring those truths to fruition. Supply resources for going further and deeper into the individual topics you are facing to help believers study, grow and become prepared (1 Peter 3:15). Be certain that, in the end, you can sign your letter of life, “Sincerely Your’s.”
