On Saturday afternoon, I wrote an essay for my blog and near the end talked about bathrooms for transgenders. I’ve broached this topic before in more detail. I thought because someone wants to change their gender that doesn’t make them unlovable. God still loves them, their friends and family often still love them. I don’t hold anything against a transgender. Hopefully I’ll still be polite and caring and interested in each individual.
It’s just that I’ve run into people in my lifetime that lied. I can picture molesters and pedophiles coming into women’s restrooms and pretending they’re transgenders so they can attack their prey in a controlled environment.
My mom used to remind me as a young girl that certain behaviors were expected of me because I was growing up to be a lady. A part of being a lady that I cherish is that my husband protects me. In college, a man that hung around college kids approached me to ask for a quarter. We were not on the streets. He might have been a young college student. I looked at him and told him I didn’t have any money. My boyfriend, who is now my husband, told him to leave me alone, I’d already answered him. The guy kept pushing for a quarter and I kept saying I don’t have one. Then my boyfriend walked over to him and quietly, strongly said, “She told you she doesn’t have a quarter, move along.”
He stood toe to toe with the fellow and the man seemed to wake up to the fact that my boyfriend intended to help him move if he chose to continue to harass me. The guy became quite agile in the crowd of students. He disappeared and I don’t remember seeing him again.
The problem with changes made to benefit the few is that the majority of people suffer. Those rights endanger the rights of others. When men and women decide that they are not the sex they were born into, any marriage partner in a heterosexual union gets hurt. It’ll never be the same. Any children involved are thrown into immediate chaos. My husband said, “What are the long term ramifications of these hormonal drugs on each person? I don’t think anyone knows yet.”
So, not only do I think God doesn’t like it when people change their sexual orientation because that insinuates He made a mistake, but He knows consequences. The God of the Bible is all-knowing, all-perfect, good, kind, loving, a just judge and holy. I’ve heard that the book of Isaiah has 66 chapters and there are 66 books in the Bible and the book of Isaiah most closely gives a synopsis of the entire Bible, as well. If you want to know God read the Bible – Jesus is shown in the gospels and in Hebrews particularly well.
I blogged something else earlier and kept it for another time. I wanted to continue talking about the transgender issue tonight and I’m praying for God to confirm the essay I wrote earlier, because I believe God wanted me to give a prophetic word. So I’ve asked Him to confirm it. God is moving; I see it. Be blessed!
