AAPS SIGNS DOCTORS PROTECTING CHILDREN DECLARATION
Discussed by Dr. Jane Orient
with Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (www.aapsonline.org)


Part 1 of 2

Dr. Jane Orient is the Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Today, she urges everyone to sign the “Doctors Protecting Children Declaration” petition to send a clear message to WDC that surgeries, puberty blockers, and cross-sex hormones are harmful for children and teens. You do NOT need to be a medical professional to sign the petition. In fact, parents and grandparents are encouraged to sign it!

NOTE: The “Doctors Protecting Children Declaration” is authored by the American College of Pediatricians.

Click here for all the information about the “Doctors Protecting Children Declaration”, including the link to sign the petition.

Questions/Issues Discussed:


Does evidence and research suggest that children are put in serious danger by surgeries, puberty blockers, and cross-sex hormones?

Have many children actually been harmed?  Dr. Jane Orient believes that the malpractice suits that are popping up and the many young adults who “transitioned” who now regret their decision speak volumes. “Children have no concept of what is being done to them… and how much they are likely to regret it,” she says.

What is the purpose of the “Doctors Protecting Children Declaration” petition?

What are some of the many long-term, negative consequences of taking puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones?



PART 2 OF 2 - AAPS SIGNS DOCTORS PROTECTING CHILDREN DECLARATION
Discussed by Dr. Jane Orient
with Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (www.aapsonline.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

More and more children and teens are “identifying” as the opposite sex before puberty. However, once they experience “normal” puberty (i.e. without surgeries, puberty blockers, or cross-sex hormones) do many “identify” with their biological sex?

Should major, life-altering medical decisions be made because of “thoughts and feelings” of the patient?  Dr. Jane Orient responds with this: “Should I affirm someone who thinks they are Napolean or the Queen of England? We can’t lie to a patient and pretend his delusion is real.”

Can a child grant responsible, informed consent?

Some European countries, such as England, have stopped universal healthcare payments for adolescent sex-change surgeries, puberty blockers, and hormones. Are they banning the treatments, as well?

What can concerned parents and grandparents do to combat the transgender agenda?

WORD FOR THE WEEK: ASPARAGUS (MAY 26, 2024)
Discussed by Pastor Johnny Teague
with Church at the Cross Houston (www.ChurchAtTheCrossHouston.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why does Pastor Johnny receive great joy in planting a garden every year? Pastor Johnny remembers not loving it when he was a kid, but learned more about gardening as an adult and now looks forward to it.

Does he see results of his labor immediately?

Is it helpful and productive to learn from others? Pastor Johnny shares more about his aunt, who helped cultivate his love for gardening.

As Christ-followers, we are commissioned to bear fruit. BUT do we all grow, plant, and see the fruit of our labor differently? Pastor Johnny has a great analogy in response!

Can God use each of us?

Should we always keep praying for those who are lost? Is there always hope?

OUR SUSTAINER
Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 3

Pastor Jarrett Stephens begins a new summer series this week entitled: “Promise Keeper”. The focus each week will be on a different promise from God found in the Bible – both the Old and New Testaments. His sermon this week is on Psalm 55:22 “Cast your burden on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.”

Find Pastor Jarrett Stephens’ sermon here.

QUESTIONS / ISSUES DISCUSSED:

OUR OPPORTUNITY


Who wrote Psalm 55? What was he dealing with at this time in his life? (see verses 1-21 and 2 Samuel 15)

How did David respond to the problem he was facing? How did David know how and what to pray? Pastor Jarrett reminds us that knowing Scripture will help us in our prayer life. He also encourages us to not be shy about taking our requests and petitions to God.

What happened to David’s enemies after his prayer?

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, text the word JESUS to 77069 and a pastor or counselor from CFBC will call you back.

PRAYER
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program



O Mighty One, creator of the heavens and the earth, we bow down before your throne.

Have mercy on our souls. Help us to stand upright in your righteousness.

May we be bold in the defense of the weak and the fatherless.

As we go forth in your power and might, guide our steps to help deliver many from the clutches of the evil one.

Many are watching and listening. Many seek spiritual leaders. Speak through our words and actions.

Time is short, but the harvest is ready. Here we are, LORD. Use us to go to war with the evil one and his minions.

Now, let’s go forth in victory.

Praying in and through the name of Jesus Christ,

Amen
