Just when it seems that those immersed in the filth of human debauchery and debris have reached the lowest levels of sub-human activity, other individuals, desiring to descend to lower levels, either discover or invent additional sinful pursuits. Such is the case with the thought and practices of Transgenderism.
The subject of Transgenderism is that type of sexual perversion that is inclusive of, “Trans-sexuality, “cross-dressing,” and seeking “gender identity development, i.e., physical identity through radical surgeries, hormone treatment; and more broadly, “gender atypicality that is inclusive of an irrational thought process where individuals falsely conclude that there are more genders than that of male and female. Such is a myriad of subcultural expressions of self-selecting gender.
Such ethically depraved perverts desire to choose their own identity of male, female, or somewhere in between do not comprise a third sex. They remain biological males or females. They simply refuse to accept rational thinking and realization of reality in the way that they have been procreated in the image of God.
It is a pathetic notion to see the regression of human thought which degenerates into the dangerous secularistic and humanistic views of Michael Foucault and Kimberle Crenshaw, and, increasingly, advocate and argue for public school textbooks that endorse transgenderism. We have reached a point of American thought where government school administrators, members of boards of education, and teacher union representatives view concerned parents, who oppose “drag queens” reading to kindergartners as domestic terrorists. Such is a clear indication of how far that we have collectively drifted as a nation. Such also is a prime example of the clear and present danger that results from the elevation of subjective thinking over that of objective truth.
Transgenderism is Opposed to Scientific Facts
Science is properly defined as observable knowledge. Such is based upon knowledge that is empirical in nature and is subjected to facts that are known based upon the use of human senses. Empirical knowledge is not the exclusive knowledge that is extant to humanity. Contemplative knowledge is also a legitimate branch of knowledge. Such knowledge is based upon that of contemplation, logic, and epistemology. When we deal with the physical aspects of humanity we must make proper usage of the laws of physical science, or that which is observable.
While the concepts of origin, such as recorded in the book of Genesis, deals with that of contemplation; the way scientific reality functions is that which is contingent upon observation and the analysis of scientific data. Such is the case when it comes to the study of human gender. Certainly, contemplative knowledge
is of crucial importance regarding such a study. A proper analysis of factual information regarding the Genesis account of creation is a necessity to understand divine revelation regarding such. However observable knowledge of the function of the human body is equally important. The American College of Pediatricians correctly observed:
Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of male and female, respectively—not genetic markers of disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident.
Divine Revelation Reveals Truth About Gender
While certainly it is the case that all individuals today are accountable to the New Testament of Christ (John 12:48), and while it is also the case that the Old Covenant has been nailed to the cross (Col. 2:14; Hebrews 7:11-12); it is still nonetheless true that eternal moral principles stated in the Old Testament also apply in the New Testament of Christ. That knowledge of God views immorality in the Old Testament gives information how God views the same immoral practices today.
A study of Old Testament History indicates how pagan rituals would have included some aspects of transgender practice. Sexual sins, including transgenderism, were among the most heinous practices of the people that were living in Canaan. The lessons of their judgment because of deviant sexual practices remain as critical danger signs as well as a divine warning to us today.
When individuals reject the basic message of the Bible and repudiate faith in God they also reject what God has revealed about His work regarding the essence and/or nature concerning His creation. Case in point: Michael Foucault, noted French philosopher and social critic, has attempted to ague that Theism and belief that the Biblical concept of creation has leveraged cultural powers to repress human sexual expression. It is interesting to note that which God accomplished in the creation of humanity regarding the aspect of male and female as being that which is good (Gen. 1:26-31). Such being the case, when human efforts to thwart that which God has accomplished are introduced the results are sinful therefore bad.
The Creation of God in Humanity Being Limited to That of Male and
Female is Exclusive in Nature and is Therefore Sinful to Alter
Whenever individuals seek to change a divine arrangement sin comes as a result of such change. We note such in God’s scheme of Redemption, The New Testament church: Its nature, organization, worship, and work. We also note such in the development and revelation concerning the word of God. The same principle is the case as it relates to the creation of the universe, the material creation of our planet, and as humanity in accomplishing God’s purpose for our existence.
Regarding humanity: God created only male and female. God has not left us without information regarding His will concerning human sexuality. Consider the fact that humanity is binary (Gen. 1:26-28; 5:1-2). There is no third or fourth category of humanity. Homosexuals, lesbians, and those attempting a transgender approach cannot physically reproduce. Such stands squarely in opposition to God’s physical law in addition to perversion of that regarding spiritual law.
Regarding the New Testament of Christ and its relationship to all of humanity Christ noted:
Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together let not man put asunder (Matt. 19:4-6).
All sexual sin is an abomination. While the texts under consideration is a divine indictment against same sex relationships the same divine condemnation also apply to the transgender movement’s “intersectionality” instrument inclusive in our study.
Old Testament passages during patriarchy that condemned the sin of Sodomy also in principle condemns the sin of Transgenderism (Gen. 19:1-29). The same is true regarding sexual perversion regarding Sodomy under the covenant of Moses:
1 Kings 12:24
1 Kings 15:11-12
2 Kings 23:7
Transgenderism expression is not new. Such a practice is a deviant and sinful expression of rebellion against the created order of God. Such was true under the covenant of Moses (Deut. 22:5) and such is true under the New Testament of Christ (1 Cor. 11:3).
Whenever society promotes a confusion between the sexes deviant sinful actions comes as the result of such. As New Testament Christians we must be alert to the anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Bible evil age of Secularism. Transgenderism is a definite component within this system of heresy that has been conceived by the Devil and hatched in hell to destroy civilized society.
Romans Chapter One and Transgenderism
It is difficult to imagine a contemporary social movement that is more dangerously consistent with the downward spiral of Romans chapter one than Transgenderism. Such is an outgrowth of the Sodomite movement and gives traction to its goals and accomplishments:
Romans 1:18-22: Humanity from antiquity had known through patriarchy the invisible attributes of God inclusive of His eternal power and divine nature since the creation of the world. Such being the case, humanity is without excuse in sinking into the depths of gross immorality by dishonoring God.
Romans 1:26-28: Because of this reason God gave those who had corrupted their minds over to dishonorable passions that are contrary to nature. Transgenderism is a contributing factor to such identity. Such thinking promoted women exchanging natural relations for those contrary to nature, and men giving up natural relations with women. Such passion is not only sinful within themselves; such is also fueled by the Transgender movement as well.
Romans 1:29-32: Paul depicts an immoral descent into the sin of one’s own making. Unbelief and the rejection of truth leading those to repudiate even nature itself in the presence of the undeniable joined with intellectual and spiritual anarchy devolves into the normalization of the irredeemable, but also the codification of the indefensible.
Transgenderism is a grievous sin that must be opposed with all of our might. It is degrading by nature, filthy in its conduct, and eternally fatal in its results. While we must have a holy hatred for all sin in general and for this sin in particular, we must always remember that our hatred must be directed against the sin itself rather than upon the sinner. This distinction does not suggest that we develop a toleration for sin, but rather a genuine love for the sinner—to persuade them to turn from evil practices that they may escape the righteous wrath of God in an eternal hell through obedience to the gospel as well as faithful living.
