Eric Mason’s idea of a conversation about race is like that of so many other Woke folk I’ve been friends and family to – a one-sided lecture rather than a genuine back and forth.
Strachan outlines clearly and thoroughly here how wokeness is distinct from and contrary to Biblical doctrine concerning God, man, sin, and salvation.
What makes teen girls so especially vulnerable to transgender activism is a combination of factors, including but not limited to the embarrassment inherent to puberty.

As Dwight D. Eisenhower once famously said, “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”
This is another way of saying that our plans need to have a certain adaptability to them in order to be worth much.
What more could be said is that the process of planning cannot be skipped over for the familiarity it lends to us as battles unfold. The enemy makes their move. The fog of war is lifted. Many factors which had to remain speculative guess-work days or weeks prior now begin to show themselves.
I used to think plans and planning alike were unspiritual. When James writes in the New Testament about the arrogance of boasting about our intentions, for instance, I had a youthful tendency to go too far and yet not far enough all at the same time. As I reasoned, I couldn’t boast about plans I didn’t make.
Beyond this, the passage of years and the clarification which should accompany years and experience, in conjunction with further study and reflection, has taught me that planning is still a noble and virtuous thing to do even if some brag about their plans. The critical distinction is what our plans are. What do we hope to accomplish, and why, and to what end?
If our goal is a life of fame and luxury, self-indulgent and wanting glory for ourselves at any cost, then our plans and planning will have an untoward character. And we actually should hope that both alike fail, and sooner rather than later, because they won’t ultimately lead to a good end.
However, if our goal is a life of decency and honor borne of love for God and one another, such does not happen accidentally. Rather, we have to plan and purpose to be virtuous, decent, honest, hard-working, and prepared to provide what is required of us for those we love.
To the end of clarifying what God’s Word says about plans and planning, it seemed good to me to delve into what Psalms and Proverbs in particular have to say, and to do a little bit of concordance work with the original Hebrew words translated into our English along these lines. Or at least I should say that was my plan and purpose.
