First Baptist Church Senior Pastor Robert Jeffress took a strong biblical stance while recently addressing the volatile debate going on in American cities over “transgender” access to restrooms.
During a Sunday sermon he delivered to his megachurch congregation in Dallas, Texas, Jeffress drew a hard line in the sand about what he believes God has to say about “transgenders” having access to bathrooms of the opposite gender — those that do not correspond with their natural sex at birth.
He pointed directly to Scripture in order to clearly make his point to congregants — if they had any doubt about God’s stance on the issue — impressing that there should actually be no confusion when it comes to those suffering from so-called “gender confusion” using the facilities.
"It's not that confusing,” Jeffress insisted, according to Charisma News. “In Matthew 19:4, God's Words are applicable.”
He went on to explain that God couldn’t have been more clear when he proclaimed that there are only two sexes.
“The Bible says 'God made them from the beginning male and female' — not male, female and question mark,” the Texas pastor declared from the pulpit as he attacked the topic of transgender confusion and its detrimental effects on American society.
In an attempt to put an end to the LGBT community’s claims that there are dozens of different genders out there, Jeffress argued that there are not even three genders.
“God has determined how many sexes there are,” the nationally renowned Christian leader continued. “There are two — not three."
Not the natural order of things
Rebutting many of the claims made by proponents of so-called “LGBT rights” — who call the gender debate a civil rights issue — Jeffress contends that those who consider themselves to be transgender are suffering from an abnormality that needs attention … not encouragement.
"Gender identity confusion is an emotional disorder that should be treated professionally and compassionately,” the respected Baptist preacher asserted.
Jeffress then blamed United States President Barack Obama and his White House staff for their part in promoting and encouraging Americans to embrace and advocate harmful and sexually deviant lifestyles.
“Gender identity confusion should not be exploited by social activists — like those in the Obama administration — who want to deny the God-given distinction between the sexes,” the outspoken Christian proclaimed. “This is a rebellion against God's plan."
Promoting transgenderism from the Oval Office
Since Obama’s first term as president, he has actively pushed the agenda of the LGBT community in the public schools and the military, as well as in the public and private sectors of American society, with his latest attack on traditional values surfacing in North Carolina. In the Tar Heel State, the president’s administration is challenging legislation that was passed there to protect women and children from potential transgender sexual predators entering restrooms of the opposite sex.
Jeffress is not the only conservative leader to criticize Obama’s aggressive homosexual agenda of late.
Globally recognized evangelist Franklin Graham, who serves as president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, has recently attacked the White House’s directive for public schools across America to accommodate students who proclaim to be transgender.
Political opposition has also been voiced against the Obama administration’s latest attempt to straight-arm pro-transgender policies inside school gates, as GOP lawmaker, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), recently called for civil disobedience against the president’s transgender bathroom directive.
