Never Too Far

Once some years ago, I read a book by a former transsexual. He had gone through the hormonal treatment and the SRS and was miserable. As I recall, the man came to know Jesus. He came to the conviction that he needed to reverse the procedure and become as much like a man again as possible.

If you are in the position of having changed your apparent gender, then there is still hope for you. Seek the Lord Jesus Christ and ask Him what you should do. I am not in your shoes and would not pretend to know what the answer is in this given circumstance.

In John chapter six, Jesus says: “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.” Jesus does not throw His children away, like some do in this world. When I was in my teens, I read from Deuteronomy chapter 22: “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the LORD your God.”

For a time, I thought that I was an abomination. I did not know what to do.  But then God showed me that I was a believer in Christ, that He had changed my heart, and that I could not go on practicing sin as the unbelievers do.  Yes, I bought clothes, wigs, makeup, jewelry and more … yes, I cross-dressed and pretended that I was a woman … but God always brought conviction of sin and brought me to the point of throwing everything away … even the photos. How many times did I go through the cycle of buying and throwing away? It is beyond count. But, as I’ve said, Jesus took down the feminine idol in answer to my prayer. God did not abandon me to my sin.

There was another verse that spoke to my need. God told me in no uncertain terms that it was wrong for me to seek SRS. Deuteronomy 23:1 says: “He who is emasculated by crushing or mutilation shall not enter the assembly of the LORD.” Again, for those who have had SRS, there is still hope. Jesus said that He will not cast out a person who comes to Him for salvation.

No matter where you are at in the transgender world, Jesus still says, “Come unto Me.” Matthew 11 There is still opportunity to turn to Him before He judges the world with fire. He will bring an end to all things and will set all things right.
