You keep using that word…I don’t think it means what you think it means.
The saddest part about that opening sequence is I can quote it by memory. For those of you who don’t know, the title and italicized line are two lines of dialogue from the cult classic film The Princess Bride. One character repeatedly uses the term “inconceivable” when something happens he does not believe is possible. It happens enough that another character questions if he understands the meaning of the word. We are living in a time that is making me question if I understand the meaning of inconceivable, because I keep using it, then something else even more impossible happens and I use it again.
Recently the social media giant Twitter announced a change in its policies. It will now permanently ban anyone who “misgenders” or “deadnames” someone. If you don’t know what that means, Twitter has decided to go all in on the transgender movement, calling it a form of hate speech to call someone the gender they were born to if they choose to identify differently. It is also claims it is hate speech to call someone the name they were given at birth if they have opted for a new name to match their gender. Thus on Twitter, it is now hate speech to say Bruce Jenner is a man. I probably will get banned from Twitter for writing that.
I’ve written about the transgender movement before so I will not completely echo those arguments here. However, I will point out that both biology and Scripture are in opposition to the transgender movement. The Bible makes it clear God has a plan for each of us and He makes us to follow Him, not our own. Biology and anatomy make it clear which gender is which and, since God formed us in the womb, we are exactly how He intended us to be when it comes to gender. Attempting to change that is an affront to God and denies that He is the one we ought to follow. Of course, to the world, that is a non-issue, but to Christians, it should be an issue.
This article, however, is not geared to debunking transgenderism. Instead, it serves as a wakeup call. We have indeed reached the moment where what once was inconceivable is now possible. While Twitter busies itself banning people for using people’s God-given gender and calling them the name their parents gave them, it apparently does not care about open pedophiles on its site. You read that statement correctly. I don’t generally put a lot of stock in Breitbart, but they published a recent article, detailing at least fifty separate twitter accounts, some with hundreds of followers, who were openly pedophilic! Worse, these are not new accounts. One had been on Twitter for seven years! Yet apparently, pedophilia is acceptable to Twitter but calling someone by their God-given gender is not. In a word, INCONCEIVABLE!
I’ve been warning that this was coming for the last two years. The gay marriage decision opened the door, but it was just the first step. Transgenderism and bestiality are the next two logical steps but the ultimate goal is pedophilia. Not everyone in the gay and trans movement wants to get there, but the one behind the movement, Satan, does. He knows how much God loves children and he loves nothing better than thumbing his nose at God. Getting to the children always is his goal, and he is slowly succeeding. What is happening is a direct result of removing God and the Bible from our culture and Christians playing along by undermining Genesis.
If you don’t believe me that pedophilia will become an issue sooner rather than later, check out this article I wrote a few months ago covering this. As if to add fuel to the fire, the popular TV show The Good Doctor recently ran a show designed to create empathy for pedophiles. We are beyond the inconceivable point.
Unfortunately, in this life, it is unlikely we will have a Princess Bride ending with a masked pirate coming in to save the day and make everything right in the world. Instead, we are more likely to have leaders like the cowardly prince who will gladly increase his power at others expense, but has no backbone to stand for anything. The analogy is surprisingly apt. The Bible tells us that Jesus will return when things on the earth are as they were in the days of Noah before the flood. Since we know that the earth was incredibly wicked before the Flood, hence why God had to judge it, then we can assume that we have a ways to go before we reach that state. How long it will take us to get there is unknown, but the inconceivable has become probable. Better buckle up, we’re in for a rough ride until Jesus returns.
