It’s finally here.

We looked at the sexual moral crisis in society as something at a far distance; in someone else’s neighborhood, someone else’s country and someone else’s issue.

Not anymore.

It’s here at our doorsteps.

When I was 15 years old I went to a Billy Graham Crusade in Minneapolis Minnesota. At the end of the event, my mother and sister went to the bathroom and I stayed outside of the girl’s bathroom waiting for them. As I stood outside, I noticed a guy going into the girl’s bathroom. It was a man posing as a woman wanting to satisfy his voyeuristic desires. I started to yell inside the bathroom! Remember, my mother and sister were in there and this pervert was in there. He came running out. I chased him down the halls and a police officer saw the chase and joined me in capturing and arresting of this man.

Even as I write these words, schools in Canada and different cities in America are considering dangerous and irrational laws that impose unfair and potentially dangerous burdens on the vast majority of citizens, all in name of helping a tiny number of deeply confused individuals.

When will we learn?

To allow this in our schools is a guarantee of trouble making in public bathrooms and locker rooms, imposing of “gender neutral” on our loved ones. It is an experiment in social madness, and it is completely without justification, no matter how much we care about men and women who struggle with gender identity issues.

Think about this: An individual’s self-identification is the sole measure of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, not the gift of their gender given by God at birth.

All school-aged children – of any age from Kindergarten on up through high school – are free to determine for themselves who they are. For example, a five-year-old boy could make up his own mind that he is not a boy, but a girl. A ten-year-old girl could do the same thing, or a fourteen-year-old boy, etc. Not only that, but a child could identify as a boy one day, a girl next week, and then as neither one or ‘neutral’ today. (they’re are calling this gender fluidity) The guidelines make no mention at all of an appropriate age at which a child might make this decision.

This is only the start for greater problems. Just a couple days ago in Seattle “A man undressed in a women’s locker room, citing a new state rule that allows people to choose a bathroom based on gender identity.”

What kind of lunacy is this?

“How could any adult possibly think that it is fair to these little boys to have a confused little girl use their bathroom, or a confused little boy use the girls’ room? And how could any adult possibly think that it was fine for a confused (or opportunistic) teenage boy to share a locker room with teenage girls?”

I urge every man and woman of conscience and decency to stand against these laws while, at the same time, working to help those who are gender-confused get to the root of their struggles.

This social madness must stop!

We do have a window of opportunity here as parents to inform ourselves and then respond.

If you live in Canada and in Alberta there are some options that we can proactively do. Its not a time to sit idly by and be silent. We must NOT be silent any more!


  1. Make a face to face meeting with your MLA (as of today, they are home until March 1st) and convey your concerns.
  2. Write your own letter to Minister of Education David Eggen.
  3. Write your own letter to the local school board that has authority over your child’s school.


I believe in prayer. I urge you to pray. Pray for a turning of a nation back to God!

HOW TO PRAY FOR THOSE BEING PERSECUTED

HOW TO PRAY FOR THOSE BEING PERSECUTED

Christelle Baldovinos  | Society

 

Since the resurrection of Jesus over 43 million Christians have become martyrs.

“Right now 200 million people face persecution for believing in Jesus and 60% of those people are children”, according to Christians in Crisis International Ministry, a prayer advocacy ministry for persecuted believers. 

“The number of Christians in the Middle East has plunged to just 10 percent of the overall population from more than 25 percent in 2011.”1

In some of these nations, “Conversion from Islam is a crime punishable by death, suspected converts to Christianity face societal pressure and government security personnel intimidate and sometimes torture those suspected of conversion.” 2

It seems hard to believe that as we in North America are trying to get in our last vacations and trips to the pool before summer is over, the world is being turned upside down and chaos is escalating.

These past weeks countless news reports are surfacing of families being murdered, bombed, torn from each other, raped, sold into slavery, imprisoned and hung, all in a very public way. 

Many of these attacks being directly aimed at Christians. It seems those in terrorist groups such as ISIS and Hamas are scoffing in the face of God and setting a full-scale assault on those who name the name of Christ. 

Israel is being attacked in a way that forces us to pay attention and see the signs of the times.

With our brothers and sisters all over the earth in such turmoil, as of late, I found it difficult to live life as usual. But part of the turmoil inside me was really a frustration of feeling there was nothing I could do. But God has been showing me that there is much I can do.

I CAN PRAY.

What the persecuted believer’s in the Middle East and all over the world need more than anything is prayer.

We can move things in the heavenlies and I want to invite you to join me. Lets allow God to burden us with intercession that is birthed from the passion of our heart and compassion for others. 

Here are Some Examples of What to Pray:

  • Pray persecuted believers would be filled with hope (Eph. 1:8).
  • Pray the Holy Spirit would strengthen them with might (Eph. 3:16).

 

  • Pray persecuted believers would the love of Christ that surpasses all knowledge (Eph. 3:17).
  • Pray that the Gospel would be boldly proclaimed and that many would come to Jesus in these regions (Ep. 6:20).

 

  • Pray that they would remain strong amidst physical and emotional abuse.
  • Pray that justice would be released and God would make wrong things right. 

 

  • Pray salvation for those persecuting, that they would know Christ.
  • Pray for angelic encounters, dreams, visions, prison doors opening and freedom (Acts 16:27).

 

  • Pray persecuted believers would have access to a Bible.
  • Pray for the protection and intervention for children who are being abused in many ways at the hands of merciless men.

 

  • Pray that God would provide persecuted believers with safe places to live and hide.
  • Pray that they would be strong to the end and have courage counting it all joy for the sake of Christ (James 1:2).

 

  • Pray for the protection of families and for miracles such as provision supernaturally of food, water and shelter.
  • Pray that they would walk humbly in identifying with Christ’s sufferings (1 Peter 4:3).

 

  • Pray for believers who have been rejected by family and friends. Pray that God would surround them with a new Christian “family” who loves them and supports them emotionally and physically.
  • Pray for God to be an advocate for women who are socially vulnerable or have lost the custody of their children because of their faith.

 

“ We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Cor. 4:8-9, 16-18)
