Here’s a nice example of the latest leftist to vomit forth some sacrilegious rhetoric with the sole purpose of trying to piss off Christians. In a tweet posted on Christmas Day, flaming liberal progressive comedian Sarah Silverman decided to mock Jesus by claiming that the Savior of all mankind was actually “gender fluid.” Here, take a gander:
Obviously, this sort of thing really isn’t all that surprising coming from someone who actually mocks Christianity on a regular basis and starred in a PSA video promoting abortion — the same video in which Jesus is depicted as approving of baby murder. In the video, the faux-Jesus visits with Silverman and says, “Fertilized eggs aren’t people. People are people.” I think that adjectives like ‘inflammatory’ and ‘tasteless’ are really an understatement. Personally I would opt for words like ‘vile,’ ‘disgusting,’ ‘evil,’ and ‘satanic.’ But, that’s just me.
Anyway, I honestly wouldn’t be giving her the time of day unless I thought that her words and actions were indicative of a larger cultural problem: a continual “rebranding” of Jesus that casts Him as either being politically correct by modern standards or as a radical feminist, a woman, a homosexual man, a nonjudgmental wimp who came to party with sinners or, apparently, ‘gender fluid.’ In case you’re unaware, a gender fluid individual is one who identifies as various genders over the course of their life. In other words, they believe that their gender can and does change over time, fluctuating between male, female, neutrois and other non-binary, “genderqueer” categories (whatever that means.) Apparently some ‘gender fluid’ folks also believe that they are simply a mix of both male and female qualities and that it really just depends on how they feel when they get up in the morning. I guess that centuries of human anatomy and biology have not only been sacrificed on the altar of political correctness, but are now equivalent to nothing more than an individual’s emotional whims. In other news, I think I’ll declare myself to be a trans-hermaphrodite-double-spirited avocado.
Truthfully, any human being with half a brain and a basic understanding of middle school biology should be offended that, say, a man who believes he is a woman can be treated as such. I mean, doesn’t that essentially reduce femininity and womanhood to nothing more than an emotional state of existence? Doesn’t that mean that there’s nothing special at all about actually being a real woman? (You know, like the ability to birth children.) Leftists are quite literally saying that a man with male parts who feels like a woman truly is a woman — which leads to really stupid things like allowing transgender high school boys to use the girls' locker room (which I would argue is tantamount to child abuse.)
Progressivism has really ventured into blatant sacrilege, apostasy and heresy by alleging that Jesus (the man) was a so-called ‘gender fluid’ individual. But, I guess it’s not quite apostasy since progressivism has never really adhered to any sort of spiritual or moral code in the first place — particularly when it comes to the transgender movement. Regardless, I think this is all just further proof that liberalism has descended into absolute madness.
So, seeing as how these misconceptions about Jesus are running rampant on the Internet and all the social media sites, I’d like to make two very important points:
1.) First: No, Jesus was not and is not gender fluid, gay, transgender, a woman or anything other than a sinless God who came to earth in the form of a male human being.
For centuries, people have made Jesus out to be whatever they want Him to be. In 19th Century Europe, He was cast as a Romantic and eventually an Existentialist. In early 1900’s America, He was a social reformer, then a radical revolutionary and then a libertine homosexual. And if I’ve learned anything from the movies, it’s that He was obviously British, gorgeous and possibly the first Abercrombie model in recored history. This continual “rebranding” of Jesus is really nothing new. Some folks in Ireland even put on a play which depicted Jesus as a female transgender — labeling Him “The Queen of Heaven.” I’m wondering if by trolling Christians online, Sarah Silverman realizes that she has essentially ripped up 2,000 years of Christian theology and historical accounts and transformed Jesus into the contemporary equivalent of a radical LGBT activist. Frankly, I’m less concerned with her personal attack on Christians and more concerned with her mutilation of the Bible.
Moreover, it’s embarrassingly clear that Ms. Silverman really knows nothing at all about Judeo-Christian theology or just plain, simple Biblical text. One wonders if she’s even read the story of the birth of Jesus (ironic, since this is the time of year many people celebrate that event) recorded in Luke chapter two — in which every personal pronoun used to refer to Jesus [translated from centuries of original Greek] is a male pronoun. Mary gave birth to her “firstborn son; and she wrapped him in cloths and laid him in a manger…” Notice that it does NOT say that Mary gave birth to a beautiful blonde girl and wrapped her in pink cloth and laid her in a Hello Kitty crib. Even the Old Testament references to Jesus utilize male pronouns as well. (Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6). And every subsequent pronoun for Jesus throughout the rest of the Bible is male.
I could go on and on, but you get the point. If Ms. Silverman is going to claim that Jesus’s human gender fluctuated often from male to female, she’s going to have deny centuries of literal Greek and Hebrew translation. Period.
2.) Secondly: Jesus really does hate it when you lie about Him, Sarah.
Scriptural text and linguistic debates aside, this is really the more important and more relevant point: In alleging that Jesus came to Earth as a ‘gender fluid’ individual, you’ve taken what your ilk often refers to as “fundamental Christianity” and turned into some sort of progressive distortion of truth or, as I like to say, a heretical abomination. I’m sure that, were I to ask you for Scriptural proof of Jesus’s ‘gender fluidity,’ you would likely do nothing more than skim through a few random passages, select some random phrases, divorce them from the original context and then throw all of the dismembered parts together into some sort of nonsensical amalgamation and call it “truth.”
Sarah: this is why I vehemently despise your ideology. I don’t despise you as a person — I love you because you were created as a child of God. But, I despise liberal progressivism because it concocts lies out of nothingness and convinces people to stray from the Truth. What Jesus really does hate is sin and by lying about who He was and who He is, you’ve tried to destroy His flock and create dissension among those who love and follow Him. Furthermore, you’ve driven a wedge between the person of Jesus Christ and His Word, and separated the two in an attempt to turn Jesus into something that He is not, while simultaneously disregarding what His Word (the Bible) says about Him in the first place. This is quite nonsensical and frankly impossible considering that Christ is the Word made flesh (John 1:14) and that everything contained with Scripture is infallible and true — which means everything that it says about Jesus is infallible and true.
The Bible tells us in Proverbs 6 that God hates a lying tongue and in Colossians 3, we’re told not to lie to one another. In fact, lying is what ruined things for the human race in the first place.
Of course, many people today believe that it’s folks like me who are hateful for pushing back against anyone who creates their own “version” of Jesus. They’ll say that I’m wrong for doing it. But, in truth, it’s wrong to remain silent. It’s wrong to remain unfazed.
And, Sarah, it’s wrong to lie about who Jesus was and who he is. That’s wrong. That’s hateful. And it’s blatantly evident in your words and in your actions. I’ll say a prayer for you.
