					The Problem with
 “Redefining”…
           Redefine
        “To give a new or
            different
         definition to a
             word”


        Isaiah 5:20-21
Isaiah 5:20-21
  Woe to those who call evil good,
and good evil; Who put darkness
for light, and light for darkness; Who put
bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe
to those who are wise in their own eyes, And
prudent in their own sight!

  Redefinitions may satisfy
consciences, but they do not satisfy
the God of heaven!

  – Luke 1:41,44; Psalm 139:13-16
Luke 1:41,44
  (41), And it happened, when
Elizabeth heard the greeting of
Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and
Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

  (44), “For indeed, as soon as the voice of
your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe
leaped in my womb for joy.”
Psalm 139:13-16
  For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother's
womb. 14 I will praise You, for I am
fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are
Your works, And that my soul knows very well. 15
My frame was not hidden from You, When I was
made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the
lowest parts of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my
substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book
they all were written, The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.

Acts 17:25
  Nor is He worshiped with
men's hands, as though He
needed anything, since He gives to all life,
breath, and all things.

  How presumptuous it is of man to
believe that life and death are within
his right to take as he sees fit while
ignoring the will of the Giver of life!

  And the LORD God caused a deep

and He took one of his ribs, and
closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib
which the LORD God had taken from man He
made into a woman, and He brought her to the
man. 23 And Adam said: "This is now bone of
my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be
called Woman, Because she was taken out of
Man." 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father
and mother and be joined to his wife, and they
shall become one flesh.
Romans 1:26-27
  For this reason God gave them
up to vile passions. For even their
women exchanged the natural use for what
is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men,
leaving the natural use of the woman,
burned in their lust for one another, men
with men committing what is shameful, and
receiving in themselves the penalty of their
error which was due.
