ManuelYou go girl Please add me on FaceBook http://www.facebook.com/mariah.n.velez I have some questions if you dont mind .
Christians believe being transgender a sin but how would they counsel a transgendered person? And tell them to repent...Would the church expect them to have another sex change to what they originally had from birth? Or expect them to continue living as the gender they feel they were born with only this time becoming saved and giving their life to christ? Was just curious because I know many of you are youth leaders...and probably counsel teens in your church about many diffrent issues. And since you believe gay,lesbian,bisexual,and transgenders will not see the kingdom of God...What would be your method of helping this person through christ? This question was lingering in my mind today when I was thinking about ex-gay ministries...What do they do with the transgendered people?...
DISCLAIMER:: This is just a question I am asking to put myself in your shoes...I do not believe being lesbian,gay,bisexual, or transgendered is a sin or is wrong...just trying to understand how the christians on this forum think
I would like to add something to this.. I am transgender and I always felt inside ever since I was little "I'm 27 now" that I was different.. I thought and prayed every night for a couple years asking God why wasn't I female..I felt female and my feelings were that.. I also found out I was born with ovaries but they are inactive and I am also xxy chromosomes.. Now why would God do this to me, is it his way of guiding me though life and not testing me but testing others.. Other people and that includes Christians judge me like there is no tomorrow. I have always said every since I was 16 I didn't want sex and I didn't want to marry.. Now Christan always think that a Transgender is Homosexual.. Your wrong, not all are.. yes you may think and I kind of do also that if a transgender "Male to Female" marries and has sex with men after the sex change may be homosexual in your eyes and God's eyes. But what if they dated women still yes in public view that may be classed as Homosexual "lesbian" but would it really be classed as that in God's eyes. He knows us, he knows our hearts, minds, and souls. So why should you judge us..I do think that I am being tested cause I've attempted suicide allot of times due to the rejections and hate from my Christian family and other people. I use to remember a saying back in youth bible studies "What would Jesus Do" Well think about that really hard.. Jesus wouldn't judge us on how we look, he would judge us on how we act and do.. He spoke to the lowlife and loved them with all his heart and I am sure there were Homosexuals back then..even males that may of been or looked female or dressed female.. So stop judging let God/Jesus do that. Think before you act because it hurts people.. And I have seen so many Transgender that were christian but turn away from Jesus because of Christians that spit on them.
