"Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord"

I pass a Disciples of Christ church nearly every day. Recently, for Easter, they put up the slogan: "Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. (*)"

Now, of course, the Biblical text is: "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." (Psalm 118:26)

And Christ applied this to himself in Matthew 23:37-39 -- "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’ " This is a horrible prophesy/curse against "Jerusalem" (i.e. Judaism, the Jews)

But, my point here is not the prophesy/curse that Christ pronounced, but rather the feminist/leftist twisting of the verse itself.

Feminism, like leftism in general, is rebellion against God. It is the attempt to dethrone God ... and claim his place.

To be sure, feminists (and leftists in general) hate men and masculinity. But, they also hate women and femininity. They hate the Image of God, as God created us: male and female; and they hate the Image of God because they hate God.

So eager are "woke" pseudo-Christians to denigrate masculinity (and femininity), that they are now trying to erase the masculinity of Jesus Christ.

(*) Hmmm ... don't they know that 'Lord' is masculine?
