From First Baptist Church, San Antonio, Texas:

My Read grandparents in Oklahoma studied the Bible and prayed daily.  It is my prayer that we return to the Bible and it's teaching, as we face each day with the courage that only Jesus can provide.  With the pandemic; with the political and social turmoil in our country, in some cases, deliberately created, as noted in the foreign correspondents reports with updates/full discussion on "The Old South" page, we need to be in prayer about all of these issues that face our country.  (Some of these are detailed in several videos below).

Our country is facing a multifaceted crisis involving a rejection of morals and Christian virtues.  Several people, in places of leadership, are making statements and backing legislation which are outright sinful and disruptive to family life. In addition, our culture, our history, and our schools are under attack by those who do not value our American heritage. We need a return to honesty, integrity and Christian values in public life; by politicians; in our schools, and in our own private lives.  We need a spiritual revival in our country.

Buffalo, New York school system is teaching students to question the nuclear family as part of a new BLM/Marxist-integrated curriculum.  Students taught this nonsense are told they must "atone for their white privilege."  Teaching sessions become a series of scoldings, guilt trips and demands to demean oneself in order to 'empower' another. In Fifth Grade, students are taught that America has created a 'school-grave-pipeline' for black people, and that, as adults, 'one million black people are locked in cages'.  Six year olds will be required to compare their skin color to an arrangement of Crayons.

Gene Whitehurst, son of former organist Gwen Whitehurst at South Norfolk Baptist Church for over 25 years, has written beautifully about the problem of children's transgender and sexual orientation; how parents are viewing this situation; how they approach raising their children.  He has given permission to republish it here.  It is well worth reading.

Male and Female He created them


Train up a child in the way he should go…”  (Prov 22:6)


Recently, I heard where a 5 year old boy thought that he was or was inclined to be a girl.  And his mother was encouraging him to choose for himself.  I’ve talked to young boys who at some time in their early youth identified himself to be an elf; later a brontosaurus; later a ninja; still later an astronaut.  Through these stages these boys would choose outfits suitable to his childish ideas.  These young boys were raised in Christian homes and were trained in Scriptural truths by his parents and church.  It does not take long for a boy to understand sexual differences and accept his sex.


God has built into us certain innate knowledge as to one’s sex.  Unfortunately such knowledge has been distorted and corrupted by a people who increasingly exclude God and His Bible from our culture.  To counter this corruption parents should ensure that a child understands his/her sex.


Parents must be aware of the pressures on a child by culture and to ‘train their children in the way that they should go.’  A young child neither has the capacity nor life experiences to decide to be the opposite sex or to know what that means.  This is especially true if they are influenced by a culture that wants a child to decide for themselves what sex they want to be.  If it is observed at birth that a newborn is a boy or girl, then this should foster the appropriate teaching that that child should receive by the parents – and every other responsible person in their life.


"Male and female HE created them…” (Gen 5:2)


Females have two X chromosomes in their cells, while males have an X and a Y chromosome in their cells. Egg cells all contain an X chromosome, while sperm cells contain an X or Y chromosome.  God created man and woman with this clear attribute.  A person’s sex is chosen by God.  These chromosomes are in the brain not in the sex organs!  God ordains one’s sex at conception, so one is either male or female at conception.  God decided which sex you were to be.  This is Scripture and this is science. 


Trying to psychologically or surgically change one from one sex to the other is trying to reverse God’s decision.  Going against God’s decisions has grave dangers.  Stick with God’s choice.  Don’t monkey with God’s decisions.
