IS THIS “THE BRAVEST ATHLETE IN HISTORY” OR A COMPLETE SHAM?

Lord, Your word says "know that the Lord is God. It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves."(Psalm 100:3) Help us Lord as a nation hold onto Your word and not fall victim to the evil seeking to change Your truth.

You may have heard this one. A while back, a man and a woman got into a fight. As is often the case, the man was bigger and stronger, and his repeated blows knocked the woman out and broke seven bones in her face. That ended the fight.

The man was never arrested or charged with a crime because this fight was a sanctioned sporting event, although the term “sporting” seems a stretch here. Fallon Fox is the name of the man, and he identifies as a woman. The MMA, blinded by political correctness, refuses to acknowledge the obvious and allows him to fight in the women’s league.

HOW ARE YOU PRAYING ABOUT THE TRANSGENDER CRISIS IN AMERICA? LEAVE A COMMENT.

Tamikka Brents, the woman he beat that night, reportedly did not realize before the fight that she was going up against a man. On another occasion, a different woman that fought Fox was beaten so badly she will never fight again.

What is the response to this? Outsports, an LBGTQ sports magazine, honored Fox as “the bravest athlete in history.” It wasn’t his opponents who were brave, but him. Or “her” as they misguidedly call him. As I perused twitter comments on the topic, I saw a common “so what” attitude. “Sometimes people get hurt in MMA fights,” one person tweeted. No remorse or guilt at all.

How did we get to this point, where a man beating a woman senseless is brave?

The LBGTQ dogma, and specifically transgenderism, in this case, is a false religion that has swallowed much of our world and teaches a terrible lie — “I am who I feel I am.” So prevalent is this delusion right now, that not only does our culture call a man a “she,” we allow a man to beat up a woman, and insist that it’s really two women fighting, so all is fair.

Christians, and seekers of truth, in general, must remember that this worldview is bankrupt. The fact is, we have no right to say who we are. We were not consulted at our creation. We were not asked. We had no input in our design. We are who our Maker says we are.

“Know that the Lord is God. It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves.” (Psalm 100:3) That is Christian doctrine, and it is based firmly in reality.

But LBGTQ teaching is the opposite. “Don’t let anyone tell you who you are,” they would say. “Anyone can be a woman. Or a man. I am a woman if I say I am.”

It is true that some people are uncomfortable with who they are. Actually, that is true for all of us at different points of our lives. But it is one thing to struggle with accepting who God wants us to be, and quite another to reject who He made us.

Paul puts it like this. “Who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why have you made me like this?”’ (Rom 9:20).

We are mortals, and we do well to remember our place because the idea that “I am my own authority” is limitless in its destructive variations. History has shown us that.

Just recently, a 45-year-old Michigan man, Joseph Gobrick, brought up on charges of child pornography, has offered a very postmodern defense. He claims there’s nothing wrong with what he’s doing because he’s actually an 8-year-old girl. Such a comment fits in fine with the familiar slogans — love is love, who are you to judge, and I’m actually a girl, plus I’m eight.

This begs the question — if Fallon Fox really is a woman because he says so, why isn’t Gobrick actually an 8-year-old girl because he says so? If it isn’t our Creator who decides, but we ourselves, on what basis is this man wrong? On what basis can anyone ever be wrong?

Mark my words, this philosophy of transgenderism won’t just leave beaten and bruised women as its victims, but also sexually exploited children. When we replace God with the idol of self, the damage we can do, and justification we can offer, is endless.

These stories are a warning to us and our entire culture. We must not go down this path. There is a power and authority greater than ourselves, and we reject this truth at our peril. If we do nothing, it will corrupt our minds. We’ll stand by idly and watch as a man beats a woman unconscious, we’ll applaud his courage, and call him “her.”

  1. Oh God. Our God. Please be with your great prayer warriors to discern the Enemy. His evil way to use this political platform and get defended for displays and manifestation of the spirit of anger and hatred. A person with the name of Fox or Gobrick are used as a pawn for breaking down sensitivity to calling on the name of Jesus to release unaware souls from the grip and bondage of demons that hurt others. Please send disciples to cast out demons and heal by the previous blood of Jesus, Lamb of God. Amen

  2. I’m so sorry that I didn’t read this sooner. This “man” “woman” is pathetic…both for his changing identity and deliberately hurting, possibly destroying, a weaker individual. And the wickedness continues … HOW SAD!

    Sodom and Gomorah are still here.

  3. Oh God forgive us of our foolishness. Let us be bold and stand for truth. We claim every life that has been tormented with a lack of identity will find you, Jesus, and your redeeming identity will crush this cursed belief system which the blind have cherish.

  4. Dear Lord please help us because we need You. Lord our society is so dysfunctional and this issue is one of the many reasons. May we turn towards You Lord. Father please be our God and call us to You. Help us to be Your people. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

  5. Father You are worthy Almighty God of all honor and power and glory. I ask you to intervene in the lives of all those who identify as someone other than what you created them to be. I pray that the power of Your Holy Spirit whis is greater than the influence of the enemy who has brought blindness upon the life of those peole,woulds open up their hearts to the truth. We bind up all deception and lose truth and healing to those blinded y deception. We acknowledge that all power and authority in Heaven and one earth belongs to you.

  6. Dear God of compassion and omniscience, you know what abuse has happened to each transgender confused person that hooked them into this lifestyle of lies to try and escape the pain. Your love and forgiveness through the blood of Jesus, is powerful to save, cleanse, restore, heal, rescue and redeem every person from every malady or circumstance or evil that has been committed against them. Lord, I ask, in the name of Jesus, by your authority and the shedding of your sinless blood on our behalf, to reach down into the hearts of every single person on earth who had been deceived and lied to and hurt by transgender thoughts and determinations. We renounce this evil in their lives so that they will fall out of agreement with it. All demons must Go! out of their lives forever. Holy Spirit, rush into their hearts and set up house there, turning their darkness to light and the power of Satan to the power of God. Even those who have had surgery will know the miracle of having their body, mind, soul and spirit transformed into the person that they were created to be. May you give a clear and unhindered message of redemption to the world through those who have been changed from transgender bondage to wholeness. Nothing is too hard for you. Thank you, Jesus, for your lovingkindness that knows no bounds. Amen

  7. Obviously we as Christians believe we are what God created us to be. But the subject of this athletic problem IS: is this fair when a man’s physique competes against a woman’s physique, no matter what the sexual preference IS,and especially in a person of either sex who has exercised and is fit.
    The most important thing for those who wish to have a sexual change and be noted as a member of that sex, is to be accepted as that preference. (I am not arguing for this preference but to make those who believe in this see what the harm IS in sports and whatever the “sport challenge” actually is.)

    Here is a report, and it is not based on sexual preference or the genitalia of a body or even if the person has taken female or male hormones. It is about muscle mass in men and the same in women:

    Gender differences in strength and muscle fiber characteristics.

    Abstract
    Strength and muscle characteristics were examined in biceps brachii and vastus lateralis of eight men and eight women. Measurements included motor unit number, size and activation and voluntary strength of the elbow flexors and knee extensors. Fiber areas and type were determined from needle biopsies and muscle areas by computerized tomographical scanning. The women were approximately 52% and 66% as strong as the men in the upper and lower body respectively. The men were also stronger relative to lean body mass. A significant correlation was found between strength and muscle cross-sectional area (CSA; P < or = 0.05). The women had 45, 41, 30 and 25% smaller muscle CSAs for the biceps brachii, total elbow flexors, vastus lateralis and total knee extensors respectively. The men had significantly larger type I fiber areas (4597 vs 3483 microns2) and mean fiber areas (6632 vs 3963 microns 2) than the women in biceps brachii and significantly larger type II fiber areas (7700 vs 4040 microns 2) and mean fiber areas (7070 vs 4290 microns2) in vastus lateralis. No significant gender difference was found in the strength to CSA ratio for elbow flexion or knee extension, in biceps fiber number (180,620 in men vs 156,872 in women), muscle area to fiber area ratio in the vastus lateralis 451,468 vs 465,007) or any motor unit characteristics. Data suggest that the greater strength of the men was due primarily to larger fibers. The greater gender difference in upper body strength can probably be attributed to the fact that women tend to have a lower proportion of their lean tissue distributed in the upper body.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS).

    1. I’m a nurse. This email is eye opening. It reads like an article in a medical journal. May I acquire a copy? [Complete with citations,I see some are already noted]. I hope you get to publish it – or something like it has been or gets published in a peer reviewed journal!
      Thank you for Sharing!

  8. Father, awaken our culture and especially your church to this evil. May we as your children not buy into this but stand on your word. Give us courage to stand for truth as it is written in your word. Protect our children from this evil. Awaken our nation to the truth of your word.

  9. Father,
    We are created as male and female in Your image. We pray for an awakening of this Truth. Help us all to value ourselves in light of how You fashioned us in our mother’s womb. Set us free from sexual identity confusion. We pray for the sanctity of the sexes. We pray for righteous leaders to set forth and uphold godly laws and refute evil laws. Heal these woman and empower them to speak out and receive justice for their suffering. We rebuke the leaders of this organization that recklessly promoted this practice.

    1. Lord God, only you can bring sincere true repentance for love and forgiveness for not knowing how to pray about sin and this confusion coming straight from Satan. Thank you for showing us through your Word, thru the prayer points thru the love of Jesus Christ, how many times you want us to do what Jesus would do. Thank you Lord for only thru love, prayer and speaking the Word to denounce sin. Lead us at the Divine appointed time for how you, Lord Jesus, want us to speak. There is an appointed time for everything, please help us to have the Victory for saving souls. For HaShem formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils,and man became a living soul.
      Please forgive me for not always waiting for you to give me the words of love that come from Your Word by the power of the Holy Spirit. Help me to speak your words. Lord Jesus, Genesis 2:7, Gen. 2: 21-23,shows the unbelieving and the confused the Truth of God.
