I Am a Christian Who Is a Transgender

    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...

    In my life I have been afraid of many things.

    A great number of my fears centered around my knowledge that I was not like the other boys in my town. I lived in fear of social ridicule and physical violence. I feared rejection by my parents if they knew my feelings. The fear produced in me a sense of shame, so that no matter...

    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...
