What the Bible Teaches About Transgenderism

What the Bible Says About Transgenderism
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.(Genesis 1:27; 5:2Mark 10:6).

Who would have thought this verse would become controversial?

If we truly have compassion for mankind, we'll accept Biblical teaching and pray for people trapped in the harmful sins of transgenderism(1) and transvestism.

Our gender is no accident:

Psalm 139:13-16: "you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb…Your eyes saw my unformed body..."

We damage our souls when we defy God's choices:

Isaiah 45:9: "What sorrow awaits those who argue with their Creator. Does a clay pot argue with its maker? Does the clay dispute with the one who shapes it, saying, 'Stop, you're doing it wrong!'" (also Romans 9:20)

We have different personalities, interests, skills, and mannerisms. Not every man need be ruggedly masculine nor every woman lacy feminine. But God assigns gender, and He knows us better than we know ourselves (Psalm 139:1).

(1)This devotion is not discussing ambiguous genitalia (atypical genitalia), which is a birth defect where a child is born with genitalia that are not clearly defined. This devotion is discussing people who are clearly born with male or female genitalia but claim they are meant to be the opposite sex or who claim they are neither or both male and female.

As Christians, we know that the most powerful voice for any subject is Scripture. But there are also some strong voices in the secular world that still consider transgenderism a mental disorder that needs to be treated, not enabled. Perhaps they will be silenced as time goes on, but they are worth noting:

  1. I agree with whatever our Bible says and what Dr.'s say. My personal opinion is to have sympathy for those that are confused but to enable them is worse than telling the truth. There are many sicknesses of the mind and the ones that deal with sexual confusion can be difficult to approach.

  2. I believe what the Bible says and what the Dr.'s say. There are a lot of mental illnesses but ones that deal with sex can be very difficult to approach. I also think that to enable a sick person is very dangerous and needs to be approached with caution and with love but the main point is that it is not normal and needs to be treated with love and respect but it really needs to be addressed.
