Yahoo News published an article written by Rev. Lori Allen Walke, titled, “Instead of banning Oklahoma drag shows, reconsider doctrine of original sin.” The article twists the truth of Scripture into a labyrinth of lies to accommodate her support of LGBTQ issues.
Walke accuses “conservative evangelical legislators” of trying to limit “reproductive health treatment options, banning gender-affirming care, forbidding evidence-based sex education and proscribing drag shows — you name it, they are trying it. Why are they so obsessed with genitalia, gender expression and other people’s bodies?”
I do not think there are legislators opposed to “reproductive health treatment options.” The LGBTQ people by their support for same-sex marriage are opposed to reproductive health. They think children who have been indoctrinated to believe they are a different gender than what they were born should be able to make life changing decisions about surgery and hormonal therapy not based no science but fairy tales.
Parents do not want their children forced to watch drag shows and when it comes to being “obsessed with genitalia, gender expression and other people’s bodies” it is the LGBTQ crowd that is obsessed with the desire to indoctrinate other people’s kindergarten and elementary school age children with their perversion of those things. Same-sex couples have no reproductive options, their only “option” is to indoctrinate the children of heterosexuals.
Not satisfied with promoting their on perverted propaganda Lori Allen Walke takes aim at the Bible and seeks to pervert its message to accommodate her own brand of sinlessness. She writes, “Much of their fixation is rooted in the doctrine of original sin, which argues that human nature was corrupted by the first sin of Adam and Eve, causing all humans to be inherently sinful. It is a theological construct, erected from various passages in scripture. Genesis 3 is its seminal story, known as “The Fall,” the moment when humans were no longer welcome in the Garden of Eden. Nowhere in this story is the word “sin” mentioned, much less the phrase, “original sin,” but early church theologians never let facts get in the way when developing doctrine.”
If Adam and Eve did not sin as Walke suggests, why did God kick them out of the Garden of Eden? Sin is defined as “an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law.” Did Adam transgress divine law? God asked Adam, “Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” Adam replied, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.”
Adam’s last three words “and I ate” are a confession of his transgression of God’s command. The word sin may not be mentioned in this account, but it is plainly described. Like the serpent who perverted God’s command and deceived Eve with his lie, Walke wants to deceive us now.
Walke continues by questioning whether we inherited our sin nature from our first parents. But the Scriptures declare “through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men,” Romans 5:18, and “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23. The Scriptures tell us we are sinners by nature and sinners by choice. The Scriptures should not be perverted by one who claims to be a reverend.
Moses warned us, “You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you,” Deuteronomy 4:2. We are told not to be deceived by the serpent or people like Walke who add to or take away from what God has said.
