We’ve been thinking about some of the contemporary issues things that are taking place in our society and trying to think about them from a Christian perspective what ought we to think about these different things that are happening how are we to respond to these things and whenever we look at I mean when I use the word we I mean we Christian whenever we look at what is taking place my encouragement is let’s always look at these things from a Christian perspective let’s look at these things as people who live here maybe we enjoy living here but we always remember and understand we’re not from here this is not home we have somewhere else to go and so we don’t have to rise and fall with everybody around us we have a different Lord a different law that we’re interested in than most of the people around us and that ought to affect how we see things I thought we would talk at this hour about something else that is happening in our society and I know it’s probably of interest to you hear this idea about transgenderism and so forth you know there was a time when people would have thought it was completely unbelievable and completely unacceptable that two members of the same gender would find each other attractive and try to proceed as if they were members of the opposite gender now imagine what people who couldn’t believe in except that would think about the idea that someone could change their gender well the science continues to move along and sometimes science is used for good and sometimes science is used for evil as science continues to go and to move along we’re seeing some things now that phrase we’re just not used to seeing and these things are becoming more and more common the new normal in these United States our Christians supposed to deal with it there’s a man named Bruce Jenner 1976 he was the gold medal decathlon winner and because of that accomplishment he was looked upon by many as sort of being the pinnacle of manhood he was looked at as an example hey here’s what a man is here’s what a man is supposed to be here’s what a man is supposed to be able to do about 40 years after accomplishing back feat in April of 2015 mr. Jenner appeared on a televised interview with Diane Sawyer in which he said and these are his words my brain is much more female than it is male it’s hard for people to understand that he says but that’s what my soul is that female side of me that’s who I am a few months later mr. Jenner was awarded the prestigious Arthur Ashe award for courage by ESPN and he was given this award because of his public quote unquote transition from being a male to a female he changes his name from Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner he appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine I listen I don’t read the magazine but I even if you live in a bubble like I do you may have messed around and saw this cover because it was everywhere so we’ve got a man who’s about 70 years old dressed in a dress with makeup on presenting himself as a female a little while later he was awarded the cover of Time magazine for the same reason the man is being celebrated and given Awards because he says I’ve been confused my whole life about my true gender I know I was born a man I know it but I’ve always felt like I’m a female and so that’s how I’m going to live my life from now on and our society has decided to celebrate that kind of thing Bruce Jenner suffers from what used to be called gender identity disorder now you know the times we live in were like this order may offend some people so now it is commonly called gender dysphoria people who have this disorder are referred to as being transgender now basically that means they are anatomically physiologically members of one gender male or female but mentally psychologically they say I identify with the opposite gender this is where you get this language of a man trapped in a woman’s body or a woman trapped in a man’s body mr. Jenner is the most famous transgender in our society and maybe in the world but he certainly is not alone I remember this chastity bono is the daughter of Sonny and Cher and before mr. Jenner she was on television programs Oprah and so forth and she was saying the very same things except that she was saying I’m a woman physically but I’m a man mentally and I feel like she would say my body has betrayed me and so she wrote books and published the movie and all about her becoming Chaz instead of chastity according to the studies that I’ve seen the most recent research available to us we are told that approximately 0.6% of adults in the United States or 1.4 million individuals identify as transgender apparently we have about a million people walking around thinking that their body is not the same as their true gender some percentage some percentage of people who have this disorder will seek to make changes to their physical bodies to make their physical body conform to their thinking now one of the things that I think you ought to be aware of if you’re not already is that these kinds of physical changes are being implemented at younger and younger ages people are doing things to children small children because the parent has decided I always wanted a boy and though I got a girl I’m going to make a boy out of this girl I’ve seen this I’ve seen this sending little kid little boy to school dressed up like a girl of the dress on and all of that and I listened that child doesn’t have a chance that child doesn’t have a chance that child did not decide at five years old you know what I’m actually a girl the child didn’t decide that the parents decided that they were going to manipulate that child into living life that way and so some of the things that people do physically include surgical procedures and so I want to talk with you a little bit about how this happens you know sex change operations is what we have come to call these things people call them gender reassignment procedures and surgeries now if a person says they’re transgender and they want to have some kind of surgical procedure or they want to engage in some kind of drug regimen that’s designed to change their bodies typically what they have to do is go to some kind of a mental health professional and I sometimes don’t know all the different psychologist psychiatrist they have to go to some kind of mental health professional who would diagnose them as having gender dysphoria and once they get this diagnosis once they have that in and they take that letter of recommendation and then they can begin to engage in hormone therapy so you have men taking ingesting estrogen and all this kind of stuff in order for them to grow breasts in this kind of thing and you have women taking hormones so they can begin to grow facial hair and this kind of thing to try to change the body physically through drug therapy they begin living their lives they have to live their lives publicly for up to one year as a member of the opposite sex so now you get into what we what we used to call trans vestas embed is a person who is a man walking around dressed like a woman wearing a wig and presenting themselves as a woman or a woman doing the opposite dressed and appearing presenting herself as a man they have to do that for for up to a year and then they can begin to have surgeries physical procedures women desiring to live like men often times will have mastectomy and hysterectomies that is removing their ability to reproduce cutting off their breasts and so forth men who want to live as women can have procedures to alter the appearance of their eyes and their noses and their chins and their Adam’s apples and of course to remove their penises and their testes these kinds of procedures can cost well over 100 thousand dollars and of course now you know we have to pay for this with our taxes and our society that we live in we have to pay for people to go through these kinds of procedures there’s been a lot of efforts to provide legal and social support for transgender individuals people who want to engage in these kinds of surgeries and so forth you’ll recall maybe that target just this year target issued a statement saying they welcomed transgender team members employees and and members of the public to come in and start using the bathrooms of the sex they identify we so what they were saying is listen you’re a man we can see that you think you’re a woman you are free to use the woman’s bathroom and I insert this parenthetically because they didn’t say it with all the little girls who would be using the woman’s bathroom that’s appropriate this is where the up outcry comes in whoa wait a minute why don’t you get some places would do this just have some unisex bathrooms where one person can go in and use it and lock the door so they don’t have to look that’s not good enough that’s not good enough we want people if they think there’s something other than what they are we want them to be able to live and express that and if that imposes something on you some inconvenience that’s your problem now that’s my spin that’s my interpretation on what’s in i’m giving you the shorthand here in may of 2016 the federal government threatened to withhold federal funds from schools that did not allow the same thing that is little boys and girls going to school if they believe that they are members of the opposite gender they can use the bathroom of the gender they identify with rather than the one that you really and truly are and a school they would not support that is threatened with having federal funds with drawing I remember a couple years ago being in DC a school district in Northern Virginia was fighting this very bad off of course in some instances parents become very upset in some instances students become very upset of course when we see this kind of thing and again I know that you guys have had these kinds of battles here with what the law is going to be and people not liking the fact that you don’t necessarily want to subscribe to all of this and companies withdrawing their business and people refusing to bring certain venues to your state and robbing you of the revenue and so forth that comes along with those decisions people are alarmed and saddened by all of this I think it is important for us to realize though this is the new kind of evil it’s a new kind of evil Paul didn’t have to deal with this okay people may have been confused about their sexuality but they were not confused about their gender though it’s a new kind of evil the Bible still speaks to everything we need to know about in that something that’s good about the Bible there’s nothing new Under the Sun I mean it may take on a different kind of flavor but the Bible addresses all of this and I want us to see that this morning the Bible has a lot to say about human sexuality if you pull out your lexicon or your your Strong’s Concordance you won’t find a sex change operation listed as one of the subjects that is covered you can look now but you won’t find gender dysphoria but you will find Scriptures clearly addressing every aspect of trans vestas ‘um and sex change operations that we have to deal with the Bible gives us all things that pertain to life and godliness second Peter 1 and verse 3 and this is a good example in light of what I just gave you in again it’s just a brief introduction to these things I’ve done a fair amount of reading and research on this stuff I’m interested in these things that happen because I know they’re going to affect the church and I’m trying to help the church know how do you deal with this you know I tell people all the time one day six foot four 200-pound man is going to walk in here and address and demand to use the same bathroom as your daughter what are you gonna do about it better start thinking about it now because it’s coming better start thinking about it now so these things always catch my attention but let’s think about what the Bible teaches first what does the Bible teach about determining one’s gender interesting a new study came out just a couple of months ago and this is the conclusion that the study came to now I’m going to show you what the Bible teaches play but this study scientific study that was done by people who are not Christians and not friendly to Christianity they surveyed all of the research they surveyed all of the studies that have been done over decades and here’s the conclusion that they came to the hypothesis that gender identity is an in a fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex that is that a person might be a man trapped in a woman’s body or a woman trapped in a man’s body listened to it I don’t know why people don’t pay attention to these kinds of things I mean people who like science you know they’ll just keep going and keep going to keep going saying the science this decisive here’s what the science says is not supported by scientific evidence there is no science now we know what the Bible says we’re going to look at there’s no science that suggests that a man is trapped in a woman’s body or vice versa it doesn’t work that way what does the Bible teach on the matter when I opened my Bible when you open yours you read the guy created one man and one woman he made Adam and he made Eve a male and a female at the time of creation they did not get to make up their mind somewhere along the way the guy made a mistake that they were somehow trapped as something other than they were they were male and female the Bible tells me in Genesis 5 verses 3 and 4 in particular that this man and this woman were capable of procreating an idea procreate and their offspring after them were either male or female now listen when they were born they were either male or female they didn’t have to wait until they were of a certain age to make a decision about which one they were Adam and Eve knew when they came out which ones they were the Bible teaches me that a male is one who has an AM atomic ‘old includes the ability to produce seed for impregnating the female genesis 38 and verse 9 you remember that that one of the brothers did not want to raise up seed to his brother so he spilled his seed on the ground and God struck him down for that but see as a man he had an anatomical design that was capable of him contributing seed to impregnate a woman to raise up children that’s part of being a male by anatomical design the female on the other hand has an anatomical design that is consistent with bearing and nursing women I’ll show you this although I know you know look at Genesis chapter 4 you look at Genesis chapter 4 there’s several examples of this I’ll just show you a couple in verse number one the Bible says the man knew Eve his wife and she conceived and bare Cain and said I have gotten a man with the help of Jehovah and again she bear his brother Abel and Abel was a keeper of sheep but Cain was a tiller of the ground the woman is the one who has an anatomical design consistent with bearing children men don’t do that if you look at verse number 17 Cain knew his wife and she conceived and bare Enoch and he builded a city and called the name of that city after the name of his son Enoch she had the ability and anatomical design consistent with bearing children in verse 25 Adam knew his wife again as she bare a son and called his name Seth for she said God has appointed me another seed instead of Abel for Cain slew him anatomical design consistent with bearing children look at First Samuel chapter 1 in First Samuel chapter 1 you’ll remember that Hannah I’ve wanted to have children desperately and she had quite some difficulty in doing that eventually the Lord opens her womb and she has samuel the Bible tells me in First Samuel chapter 1 and verse number 23 elkin and her husband said to her do what seems good to you Terry until you have weaned him only Jehovah establishes were so the woman tarried and gave her son suck until she weaned him the woman has an anatomical design consistent with nursing children man can’t do that only thing I’m pointing out to you is listen there’s a lot more we could look at but I feel like we just be kind of beating a dead horse here God created men and woman they’re not the same they’re their appointment as male and female was consistent with their anatomical design men have bodies design one way women have bodies design the other way and the determination about whether one is male or female is that is made based on their anatomical design everyone who comes into the world fearfully and wonderfully made by God male or female now when can we know the decision or the determination about whether a person is male or female can be made at birth it’s not based on what a person thinks because we can know if a person is male or female when they’re born when they don’t have the ability to think about these things when they don’t have the ability to explain what they might prefer look at Genesis chapter 17 Genesis chapter 17 and I want to look at verses starting to verse 12 look at a couple of verses here now God is dealing with Abraham here and he says he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you ever email throughout your generation see that it’s born in the house or bought with money of any foreigner that is not of your seat he that is born in your house and he that has bought with with your money he must be he needs be circumcised and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant and the uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin the soul that soul shall be cut off from his people he has broken my covenant question how are you going to know who the circumcised on the eighth day unless you can tell the difference on the eighth day between a male and a female because the female we don’t need to do anything the mail we need to circumcised the eighth day now that eight days old the child is not going to stand up and tell us hey listen I’m trapped in the wrong body but God expected Abraham to be able to make this decision eight days in it wasn’t based on what anybody thought it was based on anatomical design take a look at laviticus 12 in leviticus 12 course now we’re dealing with the time where God has given his law to the people of Israel now obviously this determination was something that could have been made before the law of Moses was given but looking at laviticus 12 we find we find that this this Covenant of circumcision is being continued on to the children of Israel in the eighth day of his flesh of his foreskin the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised so the decision was one that could be made eight days in look at verses 1 and 2 Jehovah spoke to Moses saying speaking to the children of Israel saying that if a woman can see seed embarrass a man-child then she shall be unclean seven days as in the days of the impurity of our sickness shall she be unclean look at verse 5 but if she bare a male child then shall she be unclean two weeks as in her impurity and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days question a woman was considered ceremonially unclean for one period of time if she had a son and a longer period of time and she had a daughter question what she’s supposed to be able to tell at the time the child was born if it was a male or female so she could respond to God’s law regarding the period of our ceremonial unclean this question was she supposed to be able when the child was born answered yes had nothing to do with what anybody thought it was based on anatomical design i’ve got two boys and i did not find out before they were born what their gender was i didn’t want to i knew i was having sons at least I convinced myself that that that was what was going to happen but i was there in both times when my children were born you know how long it took me to figure out if i had a son or a daughter it was instantaneous oh that’s a boy that’s a boy it’s always been that way what does the Bible teach about determining gender the Bible teaches that our gender is determined by our Anatomy it has always been that way God makes me in one way he made women the other way and whatever’s going on in your mind can’t change that’s what the Bible teaches we used to know that as a society somehow or another we have largely forgotten that the Bible teaches that gender is is based on our physiological design and the natural the roles that we are to occupy in society flow out of that God makes men one way and give them a certain job you make swim in another way and give them a different job that has never been confused in the Bible what does the scripture teach about trans vest ISM I told you that one of the things a person has to do that they want to have a sex change operation is they they have to live for a period of time presenting themselves as members of the opposite sex now now this has been changed because of social pressures it’s been changed but I went back and I searched through these we have the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders and every now and again I look through those and if you go back if you go back the second of these manuals and I think we may be on five or something now but if you go back the second of these manuals classified trans vestas ‘um a man dressing like a woman or a woman dressing like a man as a sexual deviation we used to know as a society this was deviant behavior we used to know as a society that a man intentionally presenting himself as a woman or a woman intentionally presenting herself as a man was a sign of a mental problem that required treatment we used to know that somehow or another we seem to have forgotten but that old classification of this kind of behavior as a sexual deviation is consistent with the Bible the Bible teaches that it still is deviant behavior look at first Corinthians chapter 11 first Corinthians chapter 11 verse 13 now listen this is not so much about trans best ISM I want to show you a couple things here just to make a point in verse 13 judging in your cells is it seemly that a woman pray unto God unveiled listen to this does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair it is a dishonor to him but if a woman has long hair it is a glory to her for her hair is given her for covering now what is that telling you what that tells you outside of the sort of religious context there what’s going on with the Corinthians what that tells you is that God expects these differences that we naturally have between males and females to be maintained we have these differences for a reason now listen naturally women would tend to have longer hair than the end there exceptions but you know most most of the time that’s still true most of the time men will have more facial hair than women there are exceptions most of the time that’s still true God makes men and women look differently and he wants those differences maintained look at Deuteronomy 22 Deuteronomy 22 verse number five he says here specifically this is not a physical difference here this is just a difference in terms of how we present ourselves in verse number five he says a woman shall not wear that which pertains to a man neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment for whosoever does these things is an abomination unto Jehovah your God the word abomination is a very strong word it means it is disgusting it is repugnant to you what is for a man to present himself as a woman listen to intentionally put on the attire that culturally belongs to a woman to present himself as that or a woman to put on the attire that culturally belongs to a man to present herself as that Bible says God thinks that is abominable repugnant behavior these verses would preclude a man from intentionally changing his appearance so that he looks like a woman would preclude a woman from altering her appearance so that she looks like a man here we’ve got a man who puts on a dress in high-heeled shoes and a wig so that people who may not be close enough to proceed with look at him and think he is a female that’s a Bominable babe listen I don’t get an opinion on these things the Bible says it is disgusting to God and that’s what ought to concern us you know here’s a woman who cuts off her hair and puts on the man’s clothes and sort of tries to deepen her boys so that if a person doesn’t play pay close enough attention they might think that’s a man Bible says that’s disgusting so God and listen that’s what matters what we think about it doesn’t really matter it’s disgusting to God he doesn’t approve so the idea that a person is a man trapped in a woman’s body that’s foreign to the Bible listen you have the body God gave you the idea that you can try to deceive other people into thinking that you are a gender opposite of the one you are God does not approve of that either now this last step that people sometimes take the surgical procedures and so forth what does the Bible teach about elective mutilation that is to say you cut your body you damage your body not because it is necessary for some kind of some to save your life or something like that there’s some medical necessity for you know the people you have to have surgery we don’t have to cut you to get in there and deal with that okay this is not that elective mutilation I don’t like my body so I’m going to cut something off to make it more to my liking what does the Bible teach about that because that’s part of transitioning sometimes people taking drugs to physically change their body are having surgeries to bring that kind of thing about look at first Kings chapter 18 I just want to show you a couple things here in first Kings chapter 18 beginning about verse 24 I want you to see the kinds of people who engaged in this kind of elective mutilation 1st Kings 18 beginning at verse 24 the Bible says and call on this of course is Elijah dealing with the prophets of a land called on the name of your God and I will call in the name of Jehovah and the God that answers by fire let him be God and all the people answered and said it is well spoken and the lies you said into the profits of bail choose you one bullet for yourselves and dress it first for you or many and call the name of your God but but put no fire under and they took the bullet that was given them and they dressed it and calling the name of bail from morning until he till new saying Oh bail hear us but there was no voice nor any that answered and they leaked about the altar that was made and it came to pass at noon Elijah might them and said cry aloud for he is a God either he is mu his musing or you go on the side or he is on a journey or perhaps he’s asleep and must be waking listen to this and they cried aloud and cut themselves after their manner with knives and Lance’s till the blood gushed out upon them these people were mutilating their bodies why were they doing that well they were they were pagans they were confused religiously these were not people who were thinking straight at all people who were religiously confused people who engaged in idol worship in Deuteronomy chapter 14 verses 1 and 2 we see that God says something to his people his covenant people about this kind of behavior Deuteronomy 14 you are the children of Jehovah your God you shall not cut yourselves nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead for you are a holy people unto Jehovah your God and Jehovah has chosen you out of all the people for his position above all peoples that are upon the face of the earth what is he saying here listen his people don’t engage in that kind of foolishness now people sometimes with when they were mourning the dead they would do all kinds of things and you know like for example they repent in sackcloth and ashes or if they were in mourning that you sackcloth and ashes but God says listen here’s what you don’t do you don’t go cutting yourself you don’t go damaging your body because you’re not like them you belong to me and that is not behavior that he said was acceptable and of course that’s in the old test all right look in Leviticus 19 and verse 28 Leviticus 19 and verse 28 I’m coming to the New Testament I know you’re waiting on and I’m coming Leviticus 19 and verse 28 there the Bible says you shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead nor print any marks upon you I am Jehovah God does not want his Old Testament people marking themselves mutilating their flesh cutting their flesh he did not allow it in a New Testament look at mark chapter five and Mark chapter 5 we find Jesus is going to be dealing with the man who doesn’t have all this mental faculty mark chapter five and verse number one they came to the other side of the sea into the country of the garrisons and when he was come out of the boat that is Jesus straightway there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit who had his dwelling in the tombs and no man could any more buying him no not with the chain because that he had often been very often bound with fetters and chains and the chains had been rent asunder by him and the fetters broken in pieces and no man has strength to tame him listen to it and always night and day in the tombs and in the mountains he was crying out and cutting himself with stones in my study in my reading I don’t find anyone engaging in elective self-mutilation where God approves where God says it’s okay where God says it’s appropriate the only people I find in the Bible choosing to mutilate their bodies are people who are sincerely spiritually confused and mentally unstable and listen when you read psychological journals and so forth they tell you exactly what you see in the Bible people don’t do this to themselves if they’re okay mentally now what we used to expect as a society was that people would change their minds to come into conformity with the reality of their bodies we used to say listen this person needs psychological and counseling we need them to change their minds we need them to repent now we have advanced so far as a society we have become so aware as Americans that instead of people changing their minds to conform with their bodies we say listen let’s spend a million dollars its upward of $100 100,000 hundred fifty let’s spend all of this money to change their bodies to conform with their demented minds that’s how far we have progress there are some occasions in the Bible oh by the way when you read the research in the studies you will see that people who do this kind of thing who go transgender individuals but specifically those who go through with the self-mutilation all these surgeries and so forth they have a great many mental and psychological problems before and after and who’s surprised by that that’s what we see in the Bible that’s what we see in the Bible you’ll find people being amputated in the Bible but they’re not doing it to themselves it’s a no it’s a it’s a it’s an army of people who come in and defeat them and as part of their punishment they poke people I people’s eyes out and cut off their noses and cut off their arms and cash straight for me they don’t do this to themselves I see that the New Testament teaches me that our bodies belong to God first Corinthians chapter six verses 19 through 20 and if my body belongs to god I can’t cut it up or do anything else to injury without his permission I keep reading the Bible I can’t find his permission to do so what does the Bible teach about transgenderism well teaches the opposite of what transgender is impeaches people have people are what God made a male or female and if there is some confusion about what a person is because their body is one thing and their man says something else the mind is what needs to change not the body the Bible teaches that if a person was confused in their minds in this way and they thought well what i will do is go and present myself as the opposite of what i am they are going against the scriptures and if a person does things to manipulate and mutilate their bodies to try to make their bodies conform to their they’re confused mass then they are in error they are making a great mistake it’s not surprising that the bible does not speak specifically about having a sex change operation or what we call an eyelid gender reassignment surgery it just it just wasn’t something that Paul had to deal with back in the 1st century but there are some very clear principles very clear precepts in the bible old testament that knew that helped us to see that this is not appropriate first the scriptures teach that gender is determined by physiology not psychology second any attempt to present oneself as a member of the opposite sex is unnatural and condemned in the bible and third elective mutilations are the product of spiritually and mentally confused minds it’s not the kind of thing that we ought to suborn and encourage as a as a nation but certainly as God’s people right thinking people free from spiritual and mental encumbrances don’t do these kinds of things so you know what you know what people suffering from gender identity disorders people suffering from gender dysphoria you know what they mean I don’t need surgery you know what they need they need the same thing I need they need the gospel of Jesus Christ you know what they need they don’t need to be told listen it fine to do that they need to be told you need to repent of your seat and Jesus Jesus will forgive you but you have to turn away from your sin if you want to be forgiven there is forgiveness and healing in Christ or whatever sin might overtake a person including this one and as Christians we ought not to forget that I lived in DC a little different environment than Edenton North Carolina I’ve seen a lot I may have an initial reaction to seeing again a guy bigger than me dressed up like a woman I may have an initial reaction to that but what I really need to do is remember that person needs Jesus and I may be the only person in this environment who knows Jesus well enough to try to teach him about you that’s what you need to see when all this argument goes on the political stuff but we’re going to let people you certain bathrooms and all that in your state okay the politicians will sort that out nothing wrong with having a view on that nothing wrong with trying to push things in the direction that you believe God we want them to go but in the end the real issue here is not about which bathroom these people use the real issue is about which God they serve you can help that Jesus Christ is the son of God he died for your sins and mine your sin and my sin may not be exactly the same sin but the consequences are exactly the same no matter the sin God is upset with seeing every day he’s going to judge sinners he’s going to judge sinners that sinners don’t repent if you believe Jesus is the Son of God then you will depend you’ll just have to change your mind if he’s the Lord then you’ll allow him to make decisions about how you ought to live your life and you don’t get to argue with him there is no voting right the elections not going to go the way you want it to go you do it his way if he’s going to be lowered in your life you confess your sins and you’re baptized to have your sins washed away the Lord is faithful and just he will forgive you he will forgive you whatever the sin is you’ve already done that of course we still continue to fall short don’t we next perfect person I meet will be the first one we all fall short and I’m just thankful that God is willing to continue to forgive because of the sacrifice that Jesus may and if you know that you stand in need of his forgiveness this morning why would you walk out of here still in need you accept the forgiveness he offers right here right now as we stand together and sing this song of invitation
