Virginia Public Schools Will Now Allow Boys in Girls’ Bathrooms

The public schools in Virginia have received new orders from the government, dictating how schools handle transgender students, as well as which bathrooms students are permitted to use. 
These new policies can be easily summarized as carte blanche.  Students will have access to whichever bathroom matches the gender they assert they are. 

“Students should be allowed to use the [bathroom] that corresponds to their consistently asserted gender identity,” say the new guidelines.

Additionally, no verification or evidence of a gender transition is needed for any given student to access either restroom. In essence, a male student can decide one day that he’s a female, and the school has to let him in the girls’ room that day, no questions asked. 


Owned by Culture

Culture produces a way of thinking and therefore living.
Throughout Scripture, the Bible tracks two cities and the respective cultures they produce: Babylon and Zion (aka New Jerusalem). Every single one of us is owned by one of those city’s culture. Until we are saved, baptized, and filled with the Holy Spirit we are just like the apostles before Pentecost: owned by the culture of Babylon without even knowing it.
