II Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. Paul made this statement concerning ignorance, and Satan could get an advantage over us.
If we are going to protest anything we should never be unlearned and ignorant in the matter that we are protesting.
If you just want to take a stand on something that's your business, but when you are trying to be a teacher of others, at the least know the truth of the matter. The writer of Hebrews said, it this way, at the time you are to be teachers, you have need that some teach you.
We should Know that we know, and we have without a doubt studied it inside and out, so that we are not ignorant, and have all the insight in the matter. As Christians we are supposed to have wisdom.
The concordance on Ignorant says this
Ps.73:22 So foolish was I, and ignorant I was
I Co.10:1 I would not that ye should be ignorant
12:1 Brethren, I would not have you ignorant
14:38 if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant
I Th. 4:13But I would not have you to be ignorant
II peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of
II Peter 3:8 beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing
Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness,
and going about to establish their own righteousness,
and have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
All these look good in context of the concordance, but when I take any of these out of context to use to become all holy, and self righteous, that doesn't look nor sound to holy, to other it sounds and looks sanctimonious. I believe in being sanctified, but I don't think we should get so far out there, that you get sanctimonious.
Solomon said don't be over righteous.
Not to long ago President Obama in a news press said,
that we as Christians shouldn't be so arrogant,
that there has been some horrible things done in the name of Christianity like slavery, and a lot other things.
And he got slammed for it by critics in the news and talk shows.
But the truth is the horrible things is still going on, some out of ignorance and others Hatred.
I know that I probably can't change the haters,
but the ones that are ignorant I'm going try my best to help them to make the change,
that I think God wants them to make.Recently I was watching the news and seen some in protest in N.C.
on the issue of trans-genders,
and in a few days the Hate Groups got started,
in protest with the ugly names, calling them Freaks, illiformed, afflicted.
The KKK in Ga. got started, putting flyers in peoples yards using Bible scriptures to condemn them,
and turn around and call them Freaks and ugly names.
During the same time I got an Email, from someone I love very dearly, protesting right a long with the Haters " sign a petition against N.C. trans-genders laws in which I trashed",
then I got another to drop my pay pal account,
because they are for the N.C. in which I trashed,
out of ignorance protesting something they don't even have a clue nor understanding in.
With an angry spirit they have taken a stand and have not taken the time to know the background behind the matter.
Solomon said, To answer a matter before you hear it, "is not wise"
Gr. means ignorant, or a fool,
and we know that Solomon said, in a lot of the scriptures a fool would not receive correction, but wise person receives it with joy.
They try to put The Sex Change and Jenner PERVERTS in the same pot with the born trans-genders,
and mark them all as evil, or of the Devil.
I want make you aware of this one thing,
Satan does not have the power to create a living soul.
So that only leaves God to be their creator.
I know that this is something that they don't want to hear,
but Luke 9:55 Jesus said, it this way, to James and John. ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
It is very easy to be in a Wrong spirit,
so as Christians we have to be careful not to offend, and guard our actions and our attitudes that we don't come across as be being sanctimonious or Pharisees.
I took a course in Bible College on Personality Traits. That you're not even aware of, it can undermine your ministry.
It was Titled Dr. Jekyll & Pastor Hyde
by Doug Anderson director of Oak Glen, Inc.
The professor gave an assignment of home work "not promoting porn" but as a way of educating his class on what he wanted them to see. Go on line type in Trans-gender porn and look at the number of trans-genders, Being very critical as some of the other guys went on line I reluctantly observed it. It blowed my mind being a country boy I had never heard of no such a thing, and the number of them was even more mind blowing 3,632 the last two numbers may not be exact,
but that's just to give you an ideal of the ignorance behind trans-genders.
when the professor ask about the assignment, I embarrassingly slid down in my seat, hiding as much as I could, thinking to my self is this something evil until I heard his point of the matter.
Are we suppose to be Haters of these people? How does God expect us to treat them, to love your neighbor as thyself is a commandment of God. The class went into the statistics 1.6 per cent of population are born trans-genders just to make you aware of how many that is 16,000 out 1,000,000 they have been here from the beginning of time.
you have probably talk to a few and never even knew at that time.
They have never been a problem, until it has been magnified by the new laws.
God was using this class to prepare me for what was to come.
As a Christian Counselor with a local office I got my first experience of counseling a Trans-gender, because of privacy and ethics I will only use the first name Samantha was brought to me by a neighboring county juvenile correction center to be counseled.
I started my little Family tree theory, thinking I'll find out where this came from, and what was the cause, two brothers both normal, two sisters both normal, mom and dad both normal all their siblings normal, grandparents all normal. My little Family Tree Theory was now blown out the water. Ok Lord now what ? I was now in an arena that was out of my league, I now needed a counselor I thought, I was almost in a full panic attack. I was just waiting for her to ask, how did I end up like this? When the Lord just whispered she's just human just like you, when an unexplainable peace came over me.
To me it was easy to see she was a she, but to her that would be the biggest decision she would ever make, she explained my mom wanted a girl, my dad wanted a boy, and in the process they literally got both.
My dad called me Sam, my mom called me Samantha.
I was born a full trans-gender with both male and female at thirteen had to have a bra.
She explained how she ended up in prison. I thought I had a very good friend, I really trusted her, I thought we were friends for life.
So I made the mistake of telling her I am a trans-gender, at that moment she became my biggest enemy, she told everyone.
They begin to call me ugly names the main one was Freak, I could no longer go to the restroom without a fight, some of the teachers even begin to call me freak.
so I would have to ask the teacher to be excused to go to the restroom, my ex friend and two others knew what I was doing so they met and waited until I went to the restroom they jumped me, and the only thing I was thinking was survival, I cut one of them and here I am she said.
Now in the suicide tank because they can't put me in the cell with the girls, because they say I could rape some of them, they can't put me in the boys cell because I could be raped.
I was to help her make the biggest decision of her life.
She wanted to get out of that tank, but her biggest worry was what would God have me to do ? three months later at eighteen Sam became Samantha.
God did not give us permission to hate things we don't understand and people with handicaps I Corinthians 13:1-5 Paul said, though I speak with tongues of an angel and have not love, I am become a sounding brass, and a tinkling cymbal Nothing but a bunch of noise. Though I have all the gifts, understand all the mysteries, and have faith that I could move mountains, and have not love I am nothing. Love suffereth long, and is kind,...is not puffed up...doth not behave itself unseemly...is not easily provoked....thinketh no evil
