Now "Education" is Blaspheming God

A month ago, we learned that Loyola University, a Chicago-based Catholic school, will offer students a course in “transgender” medicine, including the treatment of “trans children.” The two-week course would allow students to shadow staff at gender clinics and learn about irreversible, experimental gender treatments and surgeries. 

As we've said before, gender surgeries ---child mutilations---are a growing cash flow for hospitals and doctors who do the surgeries.

Now the Leftists are turning on the Creator Himself.

We're learning that another Chicago-based school, The University of Chicago, will offer a religious course in the 2023-2024 academic year titled “Queering God.” 

According to the course description, it will include “queer Jewish, Christian, and Islamic theologies” and ask students to consider “Is God queer?” 


Be informed, not misled.

From the University of Chicago catalog:

Can God be an ally in queer worldmaking? Is God queer? What does queerness have to do with Judaism, Christianity, or Islam? This course introduces students to foundational concepts in queer and trans studies by focusing on queer Jewish, Christian, and Islamic theologies. We will analyze the ways that contemporary artists, activists, and scholars are using theology to reimagine gender and experiment with new relational forms. Our readings will include a variety of genres: memoirs, letters, scriptural interpretation, and a novel. There will be no presumption of previous acquaintance with any of the readings or topics discussed, or indeed with any academic theology or queer theory at all.

To be clear: Practicing  Jews and Christians serve and worship the same God. The God of the Bible. 

Muslims do not serve that God. "Allah" is not the God of the Bible.

There are not, as Oprah, Barack Obama, and other Leftist so-called Christians, tell the country, "many paths to God---the God of the Bible." There is only one way to the true and living God: Through Jesus Christ. By accepting him as Lord and Savior.

U.S. News and World Report states that the University of Chicago is ranked sixth-best university in the United States. 

Previously the U. Chicago taught a course called “The Problem of Whiteness” in 2022, which was eventually postponed due to public backlash. The course description explained that the seminar would “[examine] the problem of whiteness through an anthropological lens, drawing from classic and contemporary works of critical race theory.” 

Critical Race Theory, or CRT, has been banned in some states for its divisiveness. 

The class was a blatant attempt to undermine the foundations of our country. Fortunately, because of the public backlash, the class was postponed.

Now education is trying to "Queer  God" and "Deconstruct  Him."

"Queering God?"

In an interview with The Daily Caller, Joseph Flores, student co-president of a Christian ministry organization on campus, said, “Progressive actors seek to conquer and remake God into some crude mockery in their own image.” 

“The Christian God is without gender, without sex. To think of Him in such human terms and reduce Him to these categories is deeply disrespectful,” he explained. “The idea of ‘Queering God’ is, on its face, quite ridiculous. Simultaneously foolish and offensive, such a line of thinking is emblematic of the societal and spiritual decay we are suffering in our country today.” 

Again, let me be clear: This is blasphemy.

A Confused Culture

Yesterday Breitbart News published a story that begins with this: 

Americans are a people of faith, with strongly held beliefs in heaven, angels, the power of prayer, and the supremacy of a higher guiding force, a poll released Saturday by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research shows.

Pollsters found some 69 percent of people across the nation think angels are real, while the same number also believe in heaven, and 72 percent believe in the power of prayer.

However, the profile from the study shows, in my mind, a level of confusion as to who God really is.

This graph identifies what Americans who believe in God believe about Him and the Bible. 

Eighty-six percent of adults who believe that there are things that science or nature cannot explain also believe in God or a higher power, while 14 percent do not.

The widespread acceptance of angels shown in the AP-NORC poll makes sense to Susan Garrett, an angel expert and New Testament professor at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Kentucky.

“They’re very malleable,” Garrett said of angels. “You can have any one of a number of quite different worldviews in terms of your understanding of how the cosmos is arranged, whether there are spirit beings, whether there’s life after death, whether there’s a God … and still find a place for angels in that worldview.”

Ironically, more adults believe in angels and heaven than the devil and hell. And that's precisely the way Satan would have it.

What do you believe about God?

It matters what we believe about God.

According to a survey, "Not Believing in God" is a "Greater Liability in Dating" than Being "Very Religious."

While 42 percent of Americans say a potential partner being “very religious” is more negative than positive, not believing in God “appears to be a greater liability in dating,” according to polling from the Survey Center on American Life.

Daniel Cox, the director of the Survey Center on American Life, wrote that despite the United States being a “relatively religious country,” some Americans are not interested in dating someone they view as “very religious.” However, 20 percent view religiosity as a positive attribute, and 36 percent say it would not make a difference.


Polls and surveys aside, what do you really believe in your heart?

What do you believe about God? Ultimately it matters a lot.

The Bible says in  Hebrews 9:27:

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment."

How can we get it right before that moment?

Romans 10: 9-10 tells us precisely what we must do to have a personal relationship with God.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.

Be Informed. Be Certain. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.
