I Am a Christian Who Is a Transgender

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 209 People

    For most of my life, I have struggled with my

    identity as a transgender. It caused me to question God. What is His purpose for me? Why would he make me this way? I could only see it as a kind of curse. I felt betrayed because everyone I knew was "normal". Their bodies fit what they felt inside. Why didn't mine? I felt...

    as a Baptist church attendee since

    for as long as I can remember I have been told that its wrong to want to x dress. but they are just clothes and I think god made me this way and have been dressing off and on for 44 years now. and when I die they will most likely find me in a dress and heels

    T But Not Lgb

    I get so annoyed when people thinks I must be gay just becasue I'm transgendered.  I wish people could understand that unlike being gay, but transgendered is not about physical attraction, now yes there are people out there who are trans and also are LGB, but not...

    Why?

    I am a Christian, but I'm also transgendered. I knew I was different long before I became a believer. It's not sin to be transgendered but it does beg the question why a God who loves us could let us be born like this. Despite this belief, it has caused me much pain and grief as...

    WOW!! Tonight's message at church was about

    taking risks and stepping out into the unknown and doing what God is asking you to do, totally I felt as if the message was meant just for me!! And I feel I really need to go to my pastor about tonight's message after hearing it.

    For The Transgendered A Christian Walk Can Sometimes Be Quite A Struggle.

    We can get lost in an uncaring church, but we can ask God with prayer to teach us in His ways. A portion of the 86th Psalm: Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will glorify your name forever...

    God'S Kingdom Is Diverse

    Last June, I came out to my church family as Gennee. It was one of the best events that happened to me. God created us as we are. His plans aren't ours and for some, they cannot grasp a hold of the fact that God's kingdom is rather diverse. Reading through scripture not all of...

    and Christian. So with that said where do I go for support? Men's groups, I did that before I came to terms with who I am, and it was okay. It just was a little off and now I know why. But now knowing who and what I am I just can't see myself going to a men's group anymore...
