FORMER TRANS “WOMAN” DESCRIBES HOW YOUTH ARE LED INTO TRANSSEXUALISM (Friday Church News Notes, July 22, 2022, www.wayoflife.org, firstname.lastname@example.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Trans Woman returns to life as man,” New York Post, July 11, 2022: “‘Coming out of my transition was like leaving the Twilight Zone, but the rest of society is still in it.’ After living nearly a decade of his life as a transgender woman named Brianna, Brian Wagoner ultimately came to realize his transition had been a mistake. ... ‘There’s a lot of money to be made by doctors here. They see the dollar signs, and in the end, money talks.’ Wagoner reached out to The Post after reading an article in June that profiled two young women who regretted transitioning to men in their teens. ... As a closeted teen, Wagoner began dabbling in drugs, and by the time he transferred from a junior college to the University of La Verne in California to study sociology at age 20, he said, he was regularly using marijuana, ecstasy, Adderall and cocaine that he got from friends and dealers at his school. ... Gay porn led him to transgender fetish content--which sparked a sudden feeling of gender dysphoria, also described as a discomfort within one’s body. ‘Before I discovered this bizarre subgenera of pornography, the idea of being a woman never crossed my mind. Never. It just came out of nowhere, really,’ he said. Desperate for a lifeline, in early 2012, he started searching for information about the transgender movement on YouTube and found a clinical social worker based in Los Angeles who made videos about trans people. He made an appointment to see her. During their first in-person session, he said, she immediately told him he could be transgender. After just a couple therapy sessions, the therapist gave Wagoner, then 22, a referral letter to see a doctor in Hollywood who wrote him a prescription for estrogen on his first visit. ... He was also rewarded socially for transitioning to a woman at college, where he remained a student until he was 25. ‘At my college, I was basically like a minor celebrity for being trans.’ ... After he started tuning out ‘woke political beliefs’ on social media and listening to contrarian media figures like Jordan Peterson and Joe Rogan, Wagoner said, he realized he no longer wanted to be Brianna. ‘Once I got off drugs and got a real job, I just had a clear head and started feeling a new gender dysphoria all over again,’ he said. ‘I was looking at myself in the mirror and looking at my childhood photos as a little boy and started thinking, What have I done?’” CONCLUDING NOTE: This man’s story is very telling. America’s pop culture is a wicked, unhealthy thing, and this young man is a sad product of it. Not possessing the life-changing power that comes by a personal relationship with his Creator through faith in Jesus Christ, and lacking the wisdom that comes by God’s supernatural Word, he was a pawn in the hands of the demonic pop culture, its lies, and its fatal attractions: evolution, atheism, humanistic psychology, moral relativism, yogic mysticism, the glorification of sexual freedom, unisexuality, occultism, the drug culture, pornography. It’s a conspiracy, but not man’s, and it cannot be defeated with human weapons. It’s the devil’s mystery of iniquity. He laughs as his victims are enticed, trapped, defiled, corrupted, ruined, and sent to the depths of hell. I thank the blessed God for the saving gospel of Jesus Christ which is the power of God unto salvation for all sinners, even those who are in the depths of moral depravity.
THE LIE THAT NO SCIENTISTS REJECT DARWINIAN EVOLUTION (Friday Church News Notes, July 22, 2022, www.wayoflife.org, email@example.com, 866-295-4143) - In June 2022, Armin Moczek, a biologist at Indiana University, told Stephen Buranyi of The Guardian (London), “There are certain core evolutionary principles that no scientist seriously questions.” Richard Dawkins says: “Evolution is a fact, and [my] book will demonstrate it. No reputable scientist disputes it, and no unbiased reader will close the book doubting it” (The Greatest Show in Earth). This is not true. Dr. Jerry Bergman has compiled a list of 3,000 “Darwin Skeptics,” including about a dozen Nobel Prize winners. See https://www.rae.org/essay-links/darwinskeptics/. Bergman has a private list of about 1,000 names of persons who do not want their names on a public list “because of real concerns over possible retaliation or harm to their careers.” Bergman says, “I estimate that, if I had the time and resources, I could easily complete a list of over 10,000 names” (“Darwin Skeptics: A Select List of Science Academics, Scientists, and Scholars Who Are Skeptical of Darwinism,” Aug. 24, 2014). This is a result of the Darwinists who act like howler monkeys and Nazi SS troopers to try to stamp out every vestige of “creationism” from the field of science. (For documentation, see Silencing the Darwin Skeptics: The War Against Theists by Jerry Bergman.) The Discovery Institute has published “A Scientific Dissent from Darwinism” -- https://dissentfromdarwin.org. On the front page is the following quotation from David Berlinski, Ph.D., Philosophy, Princeton University: “Darwin’s theory of evolution is the great white elephant of contemporary thought. It is large, almost completely useless, and the object of superstitious awe.” As of May 2021, the list had been signed by about 1,213 scientists who agree with the following statement: “We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged.” The book SCIENTISTS WHO BELIEVE THE BIBLE, available in print or a free eBook edition, contains testimonies of nearly 100 scientists and inventors of the 20th and 21st centuries who believe in a literal six-day creation. Most have earned doctorates. We have included selections from their testimonies and writings. Many of these men and women are former Darwinists who rejected it on the basis of evidence.
SALIVA IS NOTHING TO SPIT AT (Friday Church News Notes, July 22, 2022, www.wayoflife.org firstname.lastname@example.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is from CreationMoments.com, June 14, 2022: “Someday, instead of having to give a blood sample during your physical exam, the doctor might just ask you for a saliva sample. Saliva is an amazing fluid. Besides helping us moisten and digest food, saliva is able to speed healing and fight bacteria, fungi and viruses. Saliva is chemically almost identical to the clear part of your blood. It even has, in lesser concentrations, the infectious organisms found in your blood. Let’s say, for example that you suddenly find yourself in a stressful situation. The level of the hormone cortisol will increase in your blood in response to the stress. Within 20 minutes, that increase will be evident in your saliva. This means that someday saliva tests may replace blood samples. In the United States, saliva tests have been approved to diagnose AIDS, illegal drugs, periodontal disease, alcohol and premature labor. If the hormone estriol rises in a woman’s blood before 36 weeks of gestation, doctors know that the woman may go into labor prematurely. Saliva testing is also used to check hormone levels in women who are having a difficult time conceiving a child. Other countries have approved a saliva test for hepatitis B. Saliva’s remarkable abilities are a witness to a loving Creator. He knew that we would sin and thus bring disease into the world. So He gave us saliva that, not only defends us against infection but also helps us heal. But the greatest love He has shown us is in sending His Son to give us spiritual healing. Ref: Judy Foreman, ‘The spitting image gains credibility,’ Star Tribune, September 12, 1999, p. E3.”

The News Notes remind us that the hour is very late, and we need to be ready for the Lord’s coming. Are you sure that you are born again? Are you living for Christ? “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof” (Rom. 13:11-14).
