The Truth about Transgender and Gender Identity

February 6, 2018

In a chapter about a difficult subject that all churches must think about on a practical level (how the Holy Spirit works in His people) Paul states this:

33 “…for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” 1 Cor. 14

This video says nothing about God. It simply states the Biological facts about what a person is. If we can’t even get the “what” right, it stands to reason that there will be a great amount of confusion.

We are born male or female, just as God intended. Much of society has gotten this seemingly simple thing horribly wrong and the consequences can and have been devastating.

I want to make it crystal clear that I harbor no ill will against transgenders except that they should not try to sway others to experiment in the same way. The stakes are too high and the research is unbelievably sketchy in spite of how fast the approval of the experiment is occurring. As articulated in the video below, the swift growth of the acceptance of medical intervention is happening without adequate study. I have major issues with those who are performing medical interventions like these with the insufficient amount of research that has been done on this topic. Who is benefiting from such “treatments?”

I am saddened but not surprised by recent figures dealing with transgender suicide:

“Researchers found that transgender adults were 14 times more likely to think about suicide and 22 times more likely to attempt suicide than rates in the general population.” SOURCE

I wish I had an answer for this problem. I do think people would learn to accept, with the help of God, what they were born to be if they had a clearer understanding of God’s Word.

I would love for this problem to go away but it only seems to be getting more prevalent. I think it is a sad sign of our times. Our technology is way ahead of our wisdom and understanding. May God help those who are dealing with this issue.
