America and its generations of traditional values are under attack these days, explains James Dobson in a new issue of his online newsletter.
For example, the House of Representatives recently voted against biblical marriage, the White House wants children to “change” their sex without telling their parents, Critical Race Theory teaches kids the nation is racist and Christians are being described as domestic terrorists by the leftist media.
Further, Joe Biden wants to install abortion “rights” all across the nation.
But the strongest assaults, Dobson said, are coming against marriage.
TRENDING: Over the line
“In 1996, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) reiterated that marriage consisted of one man and one woman. The bipartisan legislation was passed overwhelmingly by both the House and the Senate. Congress was echoing the will of the American people. Thirty-one states, conservative and liberal, had already voted to reaffirm that marriage is the union of one man and one woman,” he explained.
But today, only about 25 years later?
“All 220 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives along with 47 Republicans voted to repeal DOMA in support of codifying same-sex marriage into federal law (H.R. 8404),” he said.
“Even as I write this, it is uncertain as to whether or not enough Republican senators will stand against the Left’s radical LGBTQ agenda to thwart the Senate’s version of this perverted bill,” he said.
“It isn’t by accident that the Left and the evil forces behind them have set their marks on the demise of traditional marriage. They know if they can dismantle this most sacred union, everything else that stands upon its foundation will crumble as well.”
He quoted Del Tackett, who has written: “The reason God made ‘male’ and ‘female’ was for the purpose of bringing them together into a divine unity, a ‘oneness’ that brings our thoughts to the unity within the Triune God. And it was this unity of the male and female that would bring forth godly fruit… And it is here that we find the fundamental purpose for God creating us male and female, rather than some androgynous being. Any understanding of human sexuality outside of this context leads to serious error.”
Dobson explained the Bible is clear, stating in Genesis: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. … Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
Dobson described it as “foolishness, or worse, evil itself,” to deny the facts of biology.
But he said just because the left’s agenda is “nefarious” doesn’t mean Christians should follow in kind.
“We must remember to treat those who differ from us with compassion and civility. This doesn’t mean we roll over when it comes to addressing the corruptness that is rampantly spreading across our land. Jesus never compromised truth for the sake of relating to those around Him. He never held back on addressing the sinfulness of man, especially when it related to the Pharisees and religious people of His day. And He most certainly didn’t believe that truth interferes with grace. Jesus was and still is the fullness of both grace and truth. He lovingly meets people where they’re at and calls them to turn from their sins and follow Him. This is our directive as well as we address the wickedness of our day.”
The agenda also is targeting children, he pointed out, with promotions of transgenderism, homosexual pride and more.
“Sadly, we don’t have allies in the White House when it comes to protecting our youngest. President Joe Biden and his radical social engineers are attempting to use Title IX to further expand their perverted LGBTQ agenda,” Dobson wrote.
That agenda would provide that boys who say they are girls be allowed in girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms.
The law originally intended to protect girls and woman “will not be used to protect fake girls and women,” he lamented.
He wrote, “Moms and dads, you are charged to raise your children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Sadly, your job has become a much tougher assignment in recent years. From hyper-sexualized school curriculums laced with LBGTQ rhetoric to the false teachings of CRT, your kids need you more than ever to point them to the truth. I cannot stress this enough; your local public school systems do not remotely share your Christian values. And if you’re not engaging the hearts and minds of your children, they will be more than happy to do it for you. ”
Dobson has been called by the secular publications the nation’s “most influential evangelical leader,” and he founded and runs Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson on hundreds of broadcast outlets nationwide.
He also founded the influential Family Research Council in the 1980s. He received a doctorate in Psychology from Souothern Cal and served as an associate clinical professor of pediatrics at the School of Medicine there for years.
He also was on the staff of the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, and he’s advised multiple presidents on family issues.
He has written dozens of books that have sold millions of copies, including “Dare to Discipline,” “The Strong-Willed Child,” “Bringing Up Boys,” “Bringing up Girls,” “When God Doesn’t Make Sense” and more.
