It’s present in every media source, and every political dialogue. It’s being promoted or opposed in every legislature and in every country. It’s a war that is claimed more lives than any World War or civil war.

It’s raging in our universities, and right down to our preschools. It’s raging in our corporate boardrooms, of which the majority are creating whole infrastructures to support this war. It’s even raging in many of our churches, who have followed the lead of the societal influencers.

It is the war on Motherhood.

My Bible reading today took me to Genesis 30, and the inception of the nation of Israel. It’s a dramatic story of two sisters and what would arguably become at one point the most powerful nation on Earth, ruled by their offspring.

In that day and culture (and pretty much every one up until today) child bearing was desired and exalted. Some tribes and ethnic groups, like the Mayans, sacrificed their children and their culture out of existence, but it wasn’t the norm.

“So Rachel said, ‘With mighty wrestlings I have wrestled with my sister, and I have indeed prevailed.’ And she named him Naphtali. When Leah saw that she had stopped bearing, she took her maid Zilpah and gave her to Jacob as a wife. Leah’s maid Zilpah bore Jacob a son. Then Leah said, ‘How fortunate!’ So she named him Gad. Leah’s maid Zilpah bore Jacob a second son. Then Leah said, ‘Happy am I! For women will call me happy.’ So she named him Asher…”

“Then God remembered Rachel, and God gave heed to her and opened her womb. So she conceived and bore a son and said, “God has taken away my reproach.” She named him Joseph, saying, “May the LORD give me another son.”

“Be fruitful and multiply,” the first commandment, was always a part of Godly human culture. The nation of Israel followed that commandment, and western society with its Judeo-Christian roots and ethic followed it also. It’s also part of the Natural order of things. If there ever was a species with the “gender confusion” akin to the “progressive” part of the humans species today, they will have gendered themselves out of existence.

The chemical castration that the medical community is doing on children masked as puberty blocking is likely irreversible, but they’ll surely make billions of dollars on attempting therapies, just like the infertility procedures they make the big bucks on (and that are probably necessary) because of the damage hormones and abortions have wreaked on young women. And record numbers of young men are becoming infertile.

My Bible reading also included Romans 1, which tells us the core sickness that fuels this war on normalcy and motherhood.

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.”

“And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,”

“Degrading passions.” “Indecent acts.” Paul portrays people who have rejected God, and God allowed them to descend in all sorts of things that would dishonor their bodies. But at the levels of influence in our world, where denying God is encouraged and all these levels of perversity are taught as acceptable? Those people and institutions are the generals and armies of this war. Make no mistake, they have their own supreme leader, who leads them in these doctrines of demons.

“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron,” 1 Timothy 4:1-2

Men and women of faith need to be confronting this evil at every turn, in every way, in casual conversation or in contentious school board meetings, in a letter to the editor, or a letter to their pastor. Rise to the battle! Encourage motherhood!
