On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (02/24/20), Hank notes the shift in culture today with nearly half of main-line protestant pastors now supporting same-sex marriage. What was once rallied against years ago is now trending in the opposite direction and the same is now occurring with gender, where the culture has decided that gender and sex should be separate. An article in The National Review titled, “Notre Dame Plays Host to Transgender Ideology” by Alexandra Desanctis talks about how the University of Notre Dame recently featured a gender studies program in which every speaker affirms that boys can be girls, girls can be boys, and both can be something other than a boy or a girl. Further, that gender is something multi-dimensional and non-binary, and children must be allowed to assign their own gender and be reinforced by medical professionals through counseling, puberty-blocking drugs, cosmetic surgery, and so on. In short, says Desanctis, the University of Notre Dame “would rather risk the wrath of faithful Catholics than condemn the prevailing dogma of modern society.” See our resource this month, God and the Transgender Debate.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- Who were the imprisoned spirits mentioned in 1 Peter 3:19?
- Were Satan and a third of the angels cast down before or after the creation of Adam and Eve?
- Can angels procreate?
- Why was polygamy allowed for Jacob and others in the Old Testament, but is now restricted? Did God change His mind?
