We’re in the time of year when we are preparing to celebrate the birth of this nation and everything it stands for on July 4, Independence Day. We’re also coming out of a time when the ungodly have been promoting sexual perversion as part of their Pride Month. I’ll tell you, we’re at a tipping point in this nation and these things just go to show how we need to take a stand as Christians.

Statistics show that among Generation Z Americans—young adults born between 1997 and 2004—about one in five identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Among teenagers, it’s nearly one in four! By comparison, only one in thirty-seven Baby Boomers (my generation, born between 1946 and 1964) identify with this LGBTQ-XYZ stuff.

The increase is a result of the “woke” culture constantly promoting these lifestyles through movies, television, music, the media, and other ways. The homosexual agenda has become so bold that men are parading naked through the streets in front of children during “pride” parades. That’s just terrible!

Back when I was growing up, no one even knew about these sexual perversions. I didn’t know one homosexual. I’m sure they existed, but no one bragged about it or paraded down the street celebrating it. It was shameful! And if anyone had those tendencies, they hid them because they knew they were wrong (Rom. 1:18–20).

Now, these ungodly sexual perversions are not only being celebrated, but Christians are being pressured to accept them. If you oppose them, you are shamed and possibly even punished.

Our society has removed any anchors that hold people to an absolute standard of right and wrong. It’s anything goes! That’s what happens when you take prayer and God out of our schools. God’s Word is His absolute standard of right and wrong for every generation. And this whole idea of having some gender that is different than your biological sex at birth is absurd. These things have only recently been invented.

Every male has one X and one Y chromosome in every cell of their body. A female has two X chromosomes in every cell. It doesn’t matter what you cut off or attach, a hundred years after a person dies, you could exhume their corpse and determine whether they were male or female by examining their bones. This whole transgender confusion is not science and it’s not possible.

I interviewed a woman on our Truth & Liberty Live Call-in Show whose daughter was indoctrinated in just a few hours into believing she was transgender. According to the parents, their daughter was shy and was struggling to fit in at a new school. A teacher invited the girl to an after-school “art club” where she thought she might make some friends and have a chance to be creative.

Instead, when she got there, a person was telling the students in this club about homosexuality and transgenderism. As a result, this girl came to believe she was not fitting in with the other kids because she was transgender. She was groomed in school! That is just wrong, wrong, wrong.

Thankfully, these parents took a stand. It ended up taking them about nine months to undo what was done to their daughter in just a brief period of time. But now, their family is thriving, their faith has increased, and they are stronger than horseradish when it comes to fighting against this ungodly agenda. They are helping warn others about indoctrination in schools and they are turning things around. Praise the Lord!

Jesus said in Mark 10:6,

            But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

For anyone who believes the Bible, this verse should settle the issue. God only made males and females. There are only two genders, not hundreds of them. But sadly, very few people let the Bible get in the way of what they believe.

I’ve even had people challenge me and say, “The Bible doesn’t even mention homosexuality. That word’s not even in there!” The word homosexual wasn’t even used until the 1800s, so I will admit that the word is not in the Bible—but what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 19:1–25) is a pretty good indication of what God thinks of homosexuality.

Anyone who says God is okay with homosexuality either has never read Genesis 19 or Leviticus 18:22 or is flat out lying to you. In Genesis 19, two angels destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah after the men of those cities tried to have homosexual relations with them. The Apostle Peter said in 2 Peter 2:6 that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was an example of God’s punishment on the ungodly. God hasn’t changed. Homosexuality is still sin.

If the Lord tarries His second coming another one hundred years, people will look back on the foolishness of this generation in shock that they would ever believe such lies. Men don’t have babies. Only a male and a female can have children, and only when your relationship is blessed by God will you experience the blessing He intended marriage to be.

But we are seeing things changing in this nation already. In 2023, it was reported that fewer corporations were taking part in promoting Pride Month. And boycotts against these things are costing companies billions of dollars.

On July 4, 2023, I was worshipping and praising God at our annual Summer Family Bible Conference at Charis Bible College in Woodland Park. That’s when the Lord spoke to me and said, “On the 250th anniversary of this nation [July 4, 2026], even the news media is going to have to acknowledge that the wokeness is leaving; that it didn’t work.”

That means all this promotion of sexual perversion is going to be exposed and people are going to reject it. I also believe it’s going to cause people to repent, come to Jesus, and be freed from these destructive lifestyles. It’s going to be awesome!
