BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, July 11, 2021

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.

On Thursday July 1st, the US State Department announced that it will be adding a third gender to passports for Americans. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, made the announcement, saying that the Department of State is committed to promoting the freedom, dignity, and equality of all people – including LGBTQI+ persons.  He went on to say that  since assuming office, President Biden had taken several executive actions demonstrating his administration’s commitment to human rights and has directed agencies across the U.S. government to take concrete actions to promote and protect the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons around the world.  He further added how the Department would be taking additional steps toward ensuring the fair treatment of LGBTQI+ U.S. citizens, regardless of their gender or sex, by beginning the process of updating our procedures for the issuance of U.S. Passports and Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (CRBA).

“Most immediately, said Tony Blinken, “we will be updating our procedures to allow applicants to self-select their gender as “M” or “F” and will no longer require medical certification if an applicant’s self-selected gender does not match the gender on their other citizenship or identity documents.  The Department has begun moving towards adding a gender marker for non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming persons applying for a passport or CRBA.  We are evaluating the best approach to achieve this goal.  The process of adding a gender marker for non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming persons to these documents is technologically complex and will take time for extensive systems updates.  The Department will also be working closely with its interagency partners to ensure as smooth a travel experience as possible for the passport holder.”

But almost immediately, Evangelist Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, responded to this decision, condemning it and expressing disappointment that our government would fall for this kind of absurdity. He said, “This administration seems to have declared war on common sense, and they want everyone to go along with a lie. This is another reminder of the desperate need for Christians to PRAY for our nation and all those in leadership. We need God’s mercy and help.”

Evangelist Graham is perfectly correct. The Word of God makes it abundantly clear that God created two genders only, male and female. But our leaders seem to think that they have now taken the place of God, so that they are adding a third gender. Our nation is in trouble with God! We need to heed Graham’s advice and begin to pray earnestly for our nation before it is too late. Amen!
