Mitt uppdrag som kristen är att rädda människor för evigheten.
"Den Laglöses ankomst är ett verk av Satan och sker med stor makt, falska tecken och under 10 och med orättfärdighetens alla konster, som bedrar dem som går i fördärvet – de har ju inte velat ta emot den kärlek till sanningen som kunde ha räddat dem. 11 Därför låter Gud villfarelsen få makt över dem så att de tror på lögnen 12 och blir dömda, alla dessa som inte har trott på sanningen utan har valt orättfärdigheten." 2 Tess. 9-12
"Satan deceiveth the whole world" Revelation 12:9
There never can be any true peace—while sins are unforgiven. The sinner with his life's sin unforgiven, can never have true peace. He is sleeping over a volcano. But when sin is forgiven—there is peace with God.
Den gången fick hans röst jorden att skaka, men nu har han lovat och sagt: Än en gång ska jag skaka inte bara jorden utan också himlen. Hebreerbrevet 12:26
Should Christians use the preferred pronouns of transgender individuals when referring to them?
Answer: Transgenderism’s embrace by popular culture presents Christians with difficult choices. Among those is the issue of personal pronouns: words such as he, him, his, or she, her, and hers. In some situations, those who wish to identify as the opposite of their biological sex prefer to be spoken of using pronouns that correspond to their preference, not their biology. For example, a male who self-identifies as female might ask to be referred to as “she” or “her.”
Beyond this, some persons claim to be completely different genders or combinations of genders. Such persons might ask to be referred to using pronouns such as they or them, or even “new” words like xi, xim, or xer.
So, does that mean a Christian can or should use “preferred pronouns,” even just to be polite? Or should believers make a point of not using such terms at all, to avoid endorsing something untrue? As with many specific issues, the Bible does not give an explicit, word-for-word answer. There is no “thou shall” or “thou shalt not” for the use of modern preferred pronouns. What believers can do is look for guiding principles in order to make the best choice in a given situation.
In short, while Christians need to be careful and respectful, respect cannot extend to endorsing ideas that the Bible calls false. Whatever choice a Christian makes with respect to preferred pronouns, it’s important that they not give the appearance of endorsing sin or self-deception. At the same time, believers ought to tread lightly on any issue that touches on sensitive emotions.
Some Christians may conclude that preferred pronouns are simply not an option. Embracing those terms rather than factually accurate pronouns is to speak or write in ways that agree with something false (Isaiah 5:20). The person in question, in reality, is a member of a particular gender, not whatever gender he or she prefers or feels. As such, using pronouns that imply something else is at least inaccurate and might be construed as dishonest, hypocritical, or a rejection of biblical ideas.
Respect for All Persons
Even when disagreeing about an important issue, believers must act in gentleness and with respect (1 Peter 3:15). Rebuke and condemnation have their place (Proverbs 27:5; Titus 1:9), but when a person is sincere and seeking, “mercy” is supposed to be the guiding principle (Jude 1:22). No matter how a Christian chooses to handle the issue of preferred pronouns, it’s imperative to do so in as gentle and peaceable a way as possible (Romans 12:18). All people are broken without Christ (Romans 3:10).
