A Common Millennial Question to Dad and Mom
QUESTION? / COMMENT!
I have a couple of friends that identify as transgender and I completely believe them when they say their body parts don’t line up with what they feel in their mind Biologically speaking, sex can not be changed entirely but I think gender does not have to do with sex. I think gender is just a set of “rules” we associate with being a “man” or a “woman” (ex: pink is a girl color, men can’t paint their fingernails, or women have to stay at home for the kids sake, etc.. So my question is if gender is more of a man-made concept and/or what the bible may have a say in this matter.
ANSWER! / COMMENT?
I notice alot of people that are not people of faith change definitions of words and concepts, this why they can justify anything. Look up Deuteronomy 22:5 in the Bible, it says it all..."A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this." Some progressives say the body doesn't matter what matters is the soul. Our humanity is made up of body and soul, the body is weaker but is still good and holy, imperfect as it is. We do not have right to destroy or mutilate a healthy body to "change" it's original state, just to change it. In reality it's nature is not changed just damaged or "molded".
God is simple in his essence and if we are made in his image and likeness, we are not divided in our original nature. Our sins and learned behavior can corrupt our knowledge of our self awareness which leads to a person to embrace false realities. If someone says they can separate gender from sexuality and separate body from soul into two distinct realties in the same person, that is like someone saying they can separate water from being wet or fire from giving off heat. You cannot separate the very nature of something or someone from what it is. Unless you are God, and a transgender person as they call themselves cannot change their nature by declaring it or by altering their appearance by whatever means.
I pray for people who struggle in this area, they are greatly deceived. Here is some extra help pertaining to the transgender subject:
What determines someone's gender? Is it the genitalia? Is it hormones?
No. Not at all. Genitalia and hormones do not determine gender. They are the result of gender determination. So what determines Gender?
WHEN DO THEY COME INTO PLAY, AT BIRTH?
NO, AT CONCEPTION! (chromosomal defects are exceptions, i.e. someone who has more than two sex chromosomes XXY)
ONLY GOD DETERMINES GENDER. GOD ALONE.
WE CANNOT CHANGE OUR GENDER NO MATTER WHAT WE DO. THERE IS NO WAY TO DO THAT NO MATTER WHAT WE SAY OR DO OR OTHERS DO TO THE BODY.
Transgender philosophy and lifestyle is false, evil, and a demonic attack on the beauty of human life. Those who feel this way are victims of false perceptions of their own identity. Prayer and knowledge and true reason are the weapons against this evil trend.
The argument of those who want to justify it, is "I was born this way or God made me this way". For Catholics and Christians who think it is ok, they forget about the effects of original sin and/or when there are birth defects and disorders after conception. Some can be medically corrected. That's allowed because it was correcting a defect or saving a life.
Gender is not lethal and it is not a defect. It does no harm to the human person, in fact it makes up a very important reality of a human person. God created them male and female God's image and likeness.... And it was VERY GOOD. Not bad, or not quite right so we have to alter it like clothing, and, especially, not to change it by chemistry and mutilative surgery.
But God's intention for male and female happens at conception. After that for emotional, psychological, and spiritual reasons there is another explanation - trauma in the womb, learned behavior after birth - conscious and unconscious. That's not God creating someone a certain way that is someone having problems and suffering hardship in one's life. Just like anyone else. So one has to deal with these things with God's grace and right discernment. It's hard enough to deal with our imperfections and defects even with Gods grace, what happens when grace is rejected, ignored, misinterpreted, and not understood or believed?
Look at our society...
It is another attack on the Incarnation and the Bodily Resurrection Christ (which includes the Passion - Jesus saved humanity by suffering and dying in his human body).
The Body, to those who argue this) isn't important except to be used for ones pleasure and needs. Instead of consecrating it to God.
The body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor. 6:19-20 “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
Jesus is the God made Flesh.
All this is an attack by Satan on Jesus Christ come in the flesh, God in a human body.
2 John 1:7 “For many deceivers have gone out into the world, men who will not acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh; such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist.”
