What Does the Bible Say About Transgender Behavior?

Various Passages

Intro

This past week, in the FWISD – transgender bathrooms policy enacted

No school board or parent input….0.03% of population

6th largest school district in Texas

What’s wrong with that, if anything?

Look at today what the bible says about transgender or transsexual behavior

Society has lost its way – anything goes – there is no standard anymore

BUT…there is a standard…the bible is the plumb line for all of us

Look at various scriptures as we go – Pray

Trans: First let’s define a few terms from Webster’s dictionary…

A. TERMS DEFINED

1. What is a Male?

A person bearing an X and Y chromosome having a male genitalia – a boy or man - masculine

2. What is a Female?

A person bearing two X chromosomes having female genitalia to include a uterus and ovaries and breasts – a girl or woman – feminine

3. What is a Transgender?

A person whose gender identity does not correspond to a person’s biological sex assigned at birth

4. What is Gender Identity Disorder or Gender Dysphoria?

It is the desire to change one’s sex or to fulfill the role of the opposite gender

Transgenders describe themselves as “trapped” in a body that does not match their gender

They will often seek hormone therapy or surgery to bring their body’s in line with their “perceived” gender

These people often practice transvestim

5. What is Transvestism?

The practice, especially of men, of wearing clothing associated with the opposite sex for psychological gratification

Trans: Well with these definitions in mind, let’s see what the bible says about

B. Gender and human sexuality

Turn to Gen 1:27; Matt 19:4-5; Mark 10:4-9

God created two and ONLY two genders: male and female

That means a man and a woman – masculine & feminine

Notice what God didn’t say in Genesis

1. He never asked Adam or Eve is they were comfortable or happy with their assigned sex

2. He never created multiple wives for Adam or multiple husbands for Eve

3. He never asked them about their sexual orientation or preference

All of the social stigma’s and modern day acceptance about numerous genders is UNBIBLICAL

Yet our young people are being bombarded and brainwashed that being able to choose your gender is normal behavior

All this really amounts to is an attempt to normalize sin and make people feel better about sinning

Isa 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter”

Psalm 139 says that God fashions each one of us “For you created my inmost being: you knit me together in my mother’s womb…I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”

God’s creation of each individual surely included his designation of gender/sex

Satan, just like in the garden, is deceiving and confusing people

What was the purpose of creating male and female as He did?
