DJ: Some time in the last couple of months I heard you talk about transgender people. I’m a born again Christian. I am not transgender but you talk about transgenderism as though it were some kind of horrible sin.
JD: David based upon her understanding of the Bible she described homosexuality as an abhorrent abomination. But doesn’t that then raise some serious questions she said, since she also believes that transgenderism a person trapped in body of the wrong gender?
DJ: I would say that she is right concerning her observation about what the Bible says about homosexual behavior and that would be sexual activity with anyone of the same genetic sex. A female gender trapped in a male body could that person actually have sex with someone who is genetically of the same gender? Does that then put under the category of an abhorrent sin? It raises a lot of serious questions medically, genetically and Biblically. I think it’s helpful that we discuss this. You can’t have it both ways then that would mean that celibacy would be the only sure way to keep from committing sin.
JD: You know one of the things that I think bothered both of us was the use of scripture to defend her theory about transgenderism without any remote reference to the word of God; that bothers me.
DJ: Well it does me too. We understand that in the beginning we read in Genesis chapters 1 & 2 that God created 2 genders, male and female and that those genders are rooted in our DNA and God created these 2 genders. If you separate from the word of God any reference to transgenerism that poses a problem in my mind with regard to II Timothy 3:16 which talks about everything that we need to know for life ungodliness can be found in the scriptures. If there is some kind of third gender or a third combination there’s no reference to that in the word of God at all. I think that poses some serious questions that need to be answered.
JD: David James with a Biblical look as to how to help a true Bible believing born again Christian have a prophetic prospective on the issue of transgenderism.
