An Antidote To LGBT Confusion?

An Antidote To LGBT Confusion - Encounter Today - Blog

Gender confusion has been on a steady increase for over a decade now, so what can be done to help our youth from falling into the trap of confusion and deception?

One union comprising two words: Godly parents.

In a 2020 nationwide study that surveyed 20,000 teens who identified as “LGBT” between the ages of 13-17 in America found that 90% of teens who identified as “trans” were born girls and 90% of teens who identified as “non binary” were born girls. The youth trans movement is almost entirely a phenomenon of teen girls.

If we are to look at this attack on female children in particular from a spiritual perspective, the issue becomes only too simple when approached from the understanding that our true adversary hates human beings.

From this simple understanding, we know that women are the only ones created in the image of God that have the ability to reproduce more image bearers. The attack on their identity has been fueled generation after generation by lies of the enemy. As children of God, we have this ability to say the lies stop at me, they’re not allowed to affect the next generation of my family.

As Christianity in America has dropped, we have seen the increase of confusion enter the land. A simple cause and effect situation. A population without any moral guidance is bound to go wayward.

Also true is that we become what we behold, meaning, whatever we put in before our eyes and ears is what further informs our formation.

One example is from the 90’s, when entertainment and magazines popularized and even normalized unhealthily thin women which sparked a desire in the youth of society, predominantly amongst young girls and women, to try and achieve the same look as those flashing across their screens. Parents have always had a choice at what their children consume. This is, again, a cause and effect situation.

The need for parents to stand in the gap for their children is evident. God didn’t give children to industries or government, he gave them to fathers and mothers to raise them in his ways and to be the first example of Christ to them!

Parents get to determine the environments their children are put in, as well as the people they are around and the content they consume. Just as we have seen an increase in negative data points, so too have we seen the incredible impacts of children with parents in the home who serve God!

Here is a list of ways Godly parents help their children well into the future by living according to God’s laws:

  1. When both parents attend Bible study in addition to the Sunday service, 72% of their children attend Sunday school when grown.
  2. When only the father attends Sunday school, 55% of the children attend when grown.
  3. When only the mother attends Sunday school, 15% of the children attend when grown.
  4. When neither parent attends Sunday school, only 6% of the children attend when grown.
  5. If a father doesn’t go to church, even if his wife does, only 1 child in 50 will become a regular worshiper.
  6. If a father goes to church regularly, regardless of what the mother does, between two-thirds and three-quarters of their children will attend church as adults.
  7. If a father attends church irregularly, between half and two-thirds of their kids will attend church with some regularity as adults.
  8. If a mother does not go to church, but a father does, a minimum of two-thirds of their children will end up attending church.
  9. If a father does not go to church, but the mother does, on average two-thirds of their children will not attend church.
  10. If a child is the first person in a household to become a Christian, there is a 3.5% probability everyone else in the household will follow. If the mother is the first to become a Christian, there is a 17% probability everyone else in the household will follow. However, when the father is first, there is a 93% probability everyone else in the household will follow.

Whilst these data points lean more so towards the significant impact a father’s faith has on his children, we also know that mothers have an immense part to play in the faith lives of their children. From a child’s emotional well-being to their identity formation. A mother walking out her faith in Christ provides a framework for her children to seek Christ and to provide them with an avenue to understanding their purpose in life, which can contribute to a strong sense of identity.

In an age of identity confusion, fathers and mothers serving God is the antidote that our youth so desperately need. Children are sponges, they soak up whatever they are immersed in. Parents, you are the prevention of further decay!

Let me encourage you with these words which Moses spoke by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the fathers of the new generation in Deuteronomy:

“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:6-9
