While there will be many stories, counter-stories, conspiracy theories and lies told in the next few days, no matter what happens with the electoral college, there are certain threats to your freedom that will remain both domestic and foreign. Here in the United States, the constant drone of anti-Christian rhetoric by Democratic Party leaders, including the deconstruction of familial terms and class warfare already documented in the House Committee on Rules. Led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the Democrats are introducing new “visionary rules” that reflect the “views and values” of the Democratic majority and priorities as “a Country.” This presumption is only part of what will limit your freedom.
In a news release, Pelosi outlines all the rules changes for the House of Representatives. Among them are to “require standing committees to include in their oversight plans a discussion of how committee work over the forthcoming Congress will address issues of inequities on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, or national origin; honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender neutral.” This means that all biblical familial names will be deconstructed by the House across all committees and House hearings. It is an excellent example of how communism calls for the abolishment of the family.
The rule states that the words to be done away with are: “father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in- law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, step-mother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, step-sister, half brother, half sister, grandson, or grand-daughter.” Words to be used instead are: “parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, step-child, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild.” This level of “wokeness” by Congress may seem to some a proper progressive adjustment, but take heed that this is just another step toward limiting your religious freedom.
The Holy Scriptures show us that the Lord holds family and family order in high esteem. He is not gender-neutral in describing the functions of family and relationships between family members. The words Husband and Wife are often used, as are Son and Daughter. Ephesians 6:2-3 says, “Honor your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” Doing away with these terms are teeth in a gearbox to deconstruct the core strength of this nation—the family—and create an atmosphere where those who cling to biblical terms and beliefs are ostracized, further restricting religious freedom by virtue of social pressure, soft tyranny.
