Caitlyn Jenner, the Olympic athlete formerly known as Bruce, made her debut as a transgender woman last week posing in sexy lingerie on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine. He now thinks that he has crossed from manhood, having been married to three different women with six biological children, to womanhood.
Jenner joined Twitter as Caitlyn last week with the message, “Welcome to the world of Caitlyn.” Within hours, He shattered Twitter records with followers. It seems that our society is eager to embrace the most outlandish claims, because they try to destroy biblical authority and principles of decency.
This is a part of the gay agenda to destroy God’s design for the family. Progressives are trying to normalize deviant behavior and turn Christians into the new “weirdos” or the new “kooks.” This campaign is to confuse the masses, especially young people, on sexuality.
The fact of the matter is, gender cannot be changed surgically. Whatever a doctor may cut off or put on will never change that person’s DNA! Scientists know that every living organism has a specified number of sex chromosomes in each of its Somatic cells. Two large X chromosomes in a woman and one X and one small y in a man. This genetic makeup cannot be changed by taking hormones. The bottom line is that gender is more than anatomy and taking hormones or using surgically altering procedures does not change a person’s gender.
The fact of the matter is, gender cannot be changed behaviorally. A man like Bruce who now puts on a dress and calls himself Caitlyn does not become a woman through this method. The Bible says, “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the Lord thy God” (Deut. 22:5). In our day, this is called “transvestism.” God made man and woman different and expects them to stay that way. God’s condemnation is pointed directly at those of either sex who try to break down the sexual differences which exist between a man and a woman.
The bottom line is the gender that we are born with cannot be changed. A man’s claim to be a woman does not make it true. Jesus said, “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female” (Matt. 19:4). Jesus quoted from Genesis 1:27 to prove that God instituted marriage in the beginning by creating man and woman differently. Jesus didn’t say that God made them transgendered, which is a man-made concept and contrary to the teaching of God’s word!
This sin and others which tear at moral decency in our society will be held accountable in the final judgment! (Heb. 927; Rom. 1:32)
