A Christian doctor’s belief in Genesis 1:27 is “incompatible with human dignity” according to a British judge. Dr. David Mackereth was employed by the British National Health Service for 26 years. But he lost his job after he was “interrogated” about his personal religious beliefs by his boss.
Mackereth explained his beliefs to The Telegraph newspaper: “I believe gender is defined by biology and genetics. And that, as a Christian, the Bible teaches us that God made humans male and female.”
This belief led him to refuse to use transgender pronouns while working for the NHS which led to his firing. He chose to fight back but lost his appeal before an Employment Tribunal.
The judge’s determination stated that: “belief in Genesis 1:27, lack of belief in transgenderism and conscientious objection to transgenderism in our judgment is incompatible with human dignity and conflicts with the fundamental rights of others, specifically here, transgender individuals.”
Dr. Mackereth took a bold stand before the court stating that the concept of transgenderism is a “rebellion against God, which is both pointless and sinful.” He also said: “I am, of course, aware that there are men and women who believe they have been trapped in a wrong body, and I do not question the sincerity of their convictions.
“Up until recently, such a belief was considered by medics to be delusional and a symptom of a medical disorder. It is only recently that transgenderism has been recognized as normal and such delusional beliefs accepted at face value. What is responsible for that change is political pressure, not scientific evidence,” Dr. Mackereth pointed out.
The judge also claimed that the doctor’s faith “was not worthy of respect in a democratic society.” A press release by Christian Concern observed that “The ruling puts a belief in the Bible on a par with the racist and neo-Nazi ideologies which have been held to be ‘not worthy of respect in a democratic society’ in earlier judicial decisions.”
If American believers think that this is irrelevant because it occurred in another country, we need to think again. If the current homosexual juggernaut is not resisted, the same isolation of Bible believers will happen here. The same global forces of evil have no respect for boundaries.
The doctor was right in standing up for biblical truth. Satan’s lies have become so powerful that our freedom is no longer safe. Unless those lies are exposed for all to see, they will continue to gain strength until persecution here will equal China, Russia and the Islamic nations. And we know from the deadly treatment in those nations that mercy is not in the equation.
In the past, revival was preceded by saturation by scripture-filled gospel tracts. Chick tracts use only the preserved words of God, faithfully translated into English —from the Bible authorized by King James. It is the only Bible with a 400-year history of great awakenings and world-wide missions. There have been no such powerful moves of the Spirit supported by the modern “popular” versions.
