Reversal Surgeries

According to an interview with the Telegraph, world-renowned genital reconstructive surgeon, Miroslav Djordjevic, says his clinics are currently faced with an increase in “reversal” surgeries. The people requesting them are experiencing crippling depression and, in some instances, suicidal thoughts.

Severe depression and suicidal thoughts are not trifling matters. They are signs of something that is seriously wrong. What this rise in requests for reversal surgery points out is that SRS or Gender Reassignment Surgery is not a cure-all solution.

The Apostle Paul, in 1 Corinthians 2, says, “that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” So, we are not to put our faith in the solutions that men come up with, what they devise with their own wisdom, not with God’s wisdom.

This is a significant truth that we need to pay close attention to, that men do not have the answers, only God knows the correct way. Jesus Christ said of Himself, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

Fallen men devise all sorts of ways, schemes, even religions to save and protect themselves, but Jesus is clear about the fact that He is the only way to safety and security (see John 14:6).

King Solomon gave the following counsel to his sons in Proverbs chapter 4, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil.”

SRS or Gender Reassignment Surgery is an invention of men that cannot deal with the unseen issues of the heart and mind. Do not look to it for your safety and security. Ask Jesus to show you why you really are pursuing a change in gender. The reason(s) will surprise you and you will clearly see that SRS is not a solution.
