God's Cure for the
by Tom Brown
Marcus was a few days from getting his sex change operation.
He grew up in a loving Christian
family, though without a father. From the time he could feel sexual
attraction, he felt it for boys. As he grew older, he went into the
homosexual lifestyle, even though he knew that the Word of God was
He plunged even deeper into the
lifestyle by dressing up as a woman. He appeared more attractive as a
woman than a man, he and others thought. This bode well for him to
attract a greater number of men. One man in particular, he fell in love
with. The man, too, seemed to love him, though he was put off with the
fact that Marcus had a penis. He pleaded with Marcus to do the
sex-change surgery so he could resemble a woman from below the belt.
Because Marcus loved the man so much, he decided to do it for him.
He convinced the doctors that he
was a woman in his soul, and that he was assigned the wrong gender at
birth. The doctors believed him. They scheduled his sexual reassignment
Days before the surgery, his
mother died. This got him to contemplate his upbringing. Though his
mother loved him unconditionally, he also knew that his mother prayed
for him to change. It took her death to get Marcus back to his Christian
He gave his life to Christ,
cancelled the surgery, broke up with his boyfriend, and started to
attend my church. Marcus is a gentle soul. He told me that he finally
feels free. He loves to tell the story of his homosexual and trans
lifestyle and, ultimately, his conversion to Christ.
This article is written for the
Marcus's in the world. It's not going to be an article that will
convince the LGBT activists that they are sinning. Unless the Holy
Spirit convinces them of sin, they will continue their sinful lifestyle
and the promotion of it.
Not a Healthy
It is my intent in this article
to help bring freedom to those wanting out of the transgender lifestyle.1
God's Word is clear on the matter
of transgenderism: "A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man
wear women's clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does
this" (Deuteronomy 22:5). There is no deep interpretation needed;
the trans lifestyle is forbidden and for good reason: It is not a
healthy lifestyle for the one practicing it and it is a form of
deception to snatch opposite genders into a sexual relationship. God
does not say something is wrong, simply because He is a kill-joy. He
knows how we are made, and He tells us not to do anything that ruins
Consider the high suicide rate among the
trans community. Tragically, 41% of transgender people have attempted
suicide, and it is not because of societal rejection, but, rather, their
own inner demons, psychological illness and confused identity. The
answer is not hormones that reinforces the wrong identity or surgery
that supports the lie--that's like giving sugar to a diabetic; it only
makes him sicker. The answer is deliverance, inner healing, and coming
to Christ to find one's true identity in Him.
The trans community lies about
the cause of the high rate of suicide. They want to blame me, the Bible,
Christians and society in general for their own soaring suicide rate.
They claim it is discrimination that causes the sky-rocket suicide rate.
But discrimination doesn't account for the suicide rate.
Stats show that racial minorities
that are discriminated in society, actually have a lower suicide rate
than the favored majority. It appears that discrimination makes someone
stronger and resilient in the face of other troubles. Why then is the
suicide rate lower among those experiencing racial discrimination, yet
very high among both the trans and homosexual community? It's because
the gay and trans lifestyles are plainly unhealthy psychologically,
often physically and definitely spiritually.
God wants you whole, and so He
warns you about sins that ruins or distorts the image of God in you. If
you were born a male, then God intends for you to be a male. To try to
change your sex is to call God a liar. It is to say that He made a
mistake when He made you. But God did not make a mistake in creating you
the gender you were born with; it is the devil who lies to you about
your gender. He tells you that you were a mistake at birth and that you,
as a human, should correct that mistake. Satan really is accusing God of
making a mistake with you.
Consider this beautiful passage:
"For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb. I
praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are
wonderful, I know that full well"
You are created wonderfully by
God. But a confused individual doesn't understand the last words: "I
know that full well." A trans does not know full well how
wonderful he or she is, just the way God made them. It should be obvious
to any soul that his life is a creation of God. God took personal
responsibility for knitting you in your mother's womb. You look the way
God wanted you to look. The color of your eyes and hair, your finger
print, you nose, your mouth, your height is the way God wanted you to
look. And you look beautiful or handsome to Him. Society may not
consider you beautiful or handsome, you may not like the way you look,
but they and you are not the Artist that made you.
Trans people basically reject themselves. They reject their birth; Their
gender; All that God beautifully made. So it should not surprise us that
they have such a high rate of suicide. The answer, though, is not
disguising your gender or taking hormones to make you look like the
opposite gender, or, God-forbid, getting surgery to cut off the organ
that God put on your body. When a person does this, they are cutting off
a piece of God's creation. This is self rejection! This is a form of
with the doctor's help!
The healing of the psyche comes
when you accept yourself the way God made you. If you were born a boy,
then be a man. If you were born a girl, then be a woman.
The Link to
I could write volumes on the
causes of transgenderism, but ultimately, in most cases, it is an
offshoot of homosexuality. (Click
here for my article on the causes and cure for
homosexuality.) While there some cases of heterosexual men that dress up
as women, take female hormones or even want a surgical procedure to try
to look more like a woman, the vast majority of trans people are
homosexuals. Transgenderism is simply a degrading downward from
Paul said it this way, "Having
lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so
as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more"
(Ephesians 4:19). After a while, it is not enough for the homosexual
male to have sex with men, they have a "continual lust for more".
They want something different that turns them on.
This is the way all sin works.
The Bible talks about going from "bad to worse" (2 Timothy 3:13).
No one starts off with big sins. A thief does not start with stealing
millions of dollars. He starts with stealing from his parents or
relatives. He steals a small item at store. In time, he steals
thousands. He goes from bad to worse.
Drug addicts usually start with
something small. Maybe marijuana. Then for some, this doesn't satisfy,
they want something stronger. And when that doesn't give them the high
they want; they go for something stronger. This is the way sin works.
People start small—lusting after
someone of the same sex, then looking at gay porn; then going to a gay
bar; then having their first partner. From there it degrades even
further. Some homosexuals go additionally into the trans lifestyle. It
is bad to commit sexual acts with the same gender; it is worse to try to
change your gender. Just as a homosexual is confused on their sexual
orientation, they are also confused as to their gender. They are
descending further into sin, confusion and deception.
Why do they
There are two basic ulterior motives for people dressing up like the
opposite gender. First, it expands their pool of sexual partners or
suitors. Since homosexuals account for a very small percentage of the
population, there are less available partners for homosexuals. One major
reason for the gay-rights movement was for homosexuals to be able to
come out of the closet. For homosexuals to be in the closet pretty much
kept them out of the market of same-sex partners. If they didn't let
others know they were gay, then they would have difficulty getting
sexual partners. So the gay-rights movement is intended to get
homosexuals into the market of sexual partners.
However, the market of partners
is still very small. And for some male homosexuals, they are not
attracted as much to effeminate homosexuals as they are to masculine
ones. So dressing up as a woman is a good way for them to attract more
masculine males and, possibly, even heterosexual males.
Concerning women that are trans,
it does not translate in the same way as male trans, for one basic
reason: clothes that men wear, women already wear. Women already wear
pants, so this does not distinguish them so much as it would for men to
wear dresses. There are two ways that lesbians can counter this: they
can look very masculine by cutting their hair very short and wearing
masculine type clothes that hide their feminine features. The second way
for women to look masculine is to go into body building, so as to look
very muscular, which makes them look more masculine. This explains why
there is a very large percentage of women body builders that are
lesbian.2 So in a sense, women that are trans will normally
do those two things. Otherwise, they will simply try to advertise their
lesbianism in other ways.
The second ignoble motive for
people becoming trans is because it turns them on. It is a fetish. Just
as some get turned on sexually through strange and abnormal behavior
such as sucking toes, or whips and chains, so some get sexually turned
on by cross-dressing. This fetish could exist with both a homosexual or
It is obvious that if is someone
is heterosexual, then cross-dressing would not expand their base of
suitors; it would likely decrease it. For many of them, they do not find
as much satisfaction in sex as they used to. This is why a great number
of people choose to get their sex change operation later in life.3
After they have had their fill of sex, they now turn to something else
that turns them on. So dressing up as the opposite gender becomes a
fetish for them, so they could feel more aroused. Psychologists have
called this autogynephilic autosexuality.4 The heterosexual
trans gets turned on with their own-opposite sexuality. This is a very
self centered psychological illness, as well as a great sin before God.
No longer does this individual get stimulated in the same way with the
opposite gender, they now get greater stimulation with their own
opposite sexuality. In other words, they turn themselves on.
It's clear that for many of these
people, they have allowed a "continual lust for more" sex, rather
than recognizing that they have entered a new stage in their life where
the desire for sex dissipates with age. This should not be avoided, but
embraced. But for some people, they have trouble embracing the way God
I have pointed out two ulterior
motives of trans. Now I am not claiming every trans has these ulterior
motives. Only God knows every heart. For some trans, they are simply
confused, hurting, and lonely people. They are not really looking for
more suitors or more sexual partners, but just wanting to be happy with
themselves. For those who feel this: listen, changing your gender
identity is not the answer. Accepting Christ and His love for you is the
beginning of your answer. Following "his commands are not burdensome"
(1 John 5:3), yet breaking them is.
Consider the words of the prophet
Isaiah, "The images that are carried about are burdensome, a burden
for the weary" (Isaiah 46:1). Trans are carrying an unreal image of
themselves—they view the lie that they are really the opposite gender.
This is a false image, which is idolatry. This false image will be
burdensome. It will be "a burden for the weary."
Right now, you are reading this
article, because you feel burdensome. You feel very weary! The world
tries to affirm what you know is false. They tell you that you are not
really who you were born as an infant. They encourage you to change your
gender. They tell you to take hormone therapy to feel more like the
opposite gender. And if you announce that you are going to change
genders through surgery, they applaud you. Isn't it sad that the world
lies to you and essentially tells you that you are a mistake of nature?
But the God of nature assigned you a gender at birth, yet, society
agrees with the lies in your mind that you are a mistake. Do you really
think submitting and agreeing with the world that you are a mistake is
going to heal you and release you of your burden?
No! You are not a mistake! God
loves you as you are. He made you for a reason. Embrace yourself the way
you were born, and the only thing you do need to change—it's not your
body—is your spirit and mind. Be born again. Let Christ come into your
life. Change the way you think about yourself. See yourself as "God's
masterpiece" (Ephesians 2:10, NLT).5
For brevity we are not
distinguishing between transvestites from transgenders. In the end,
whether one practices cross dressing occasionally or someone views
themselves permanently as the opposite gender, they are both wrong and
practicing sin. The author uses just the generic term "trans".
Not all women body
builders are lesbians. Some Christians even have a ministry in that
The average age of sex
change operations is 41. But much higher for heterosexuals.
The psychiatric and
psychology fields are so overprotective of the LGBT lobbyists that they
seem to find unfounded reasons to crucify any doctor that shows the
causes and negative affects of transgenderism. Thank God for a few
doctors that speak the truth, even when it is not politically correct.
In addition to coming to
Christ and learning about one's identity in Him, a trans persons may
need deliverance from unclean spirits and inner healing.
