Hi
I am not sure how many on this forum have actually been touched personally with the whole transgender revolution.
I have personally as my adult niece came out identifying as a male named Ben over a year ago. She has actually had a complete sex change operation and last summer I saw a picture of her in a bathing suit topless beside her mom; both of them smiling.

Although I knew about this, seeing this picture made it a little more personal, to say the least.
When I first saw the photo, I wondered who it was standing next to my wife’s cousin. She was completely unrecognizable to me, looking very much like a young adult male in good shape.

She was brought up in a Christian home and her mother now says she has no problem with this. Yet I know very much that her dad does and I do not know how he is handling the situation. He is a fan of John MacArthur and has even posted things on Facebook that John MacArthur has said on this subject.

I have not personally seen my niece for about 10 years now, when I saw her play soccer, which she was very good at back then and looking very much like a 16-17 year old teen aged girl.
To add a little bit of irony, on my wife’s side, that particular family is the only ones who went to Church and we felt very comfortable around.

Many relatives on my wife’s side would probably find this extremely strange, especially my wife’s uncle, who I can almost guarantee would frown on something like this.
Now, I am not sure how I would handle it if I was to see her at a family event, which I have been to on many occasions over the years.

I am definitely asking for prayer for the whole situation.

Tom

Sin has no limits, not only in its expression but also in the serious damage it does to others beyond those who commit sin. I have seen families who were once close disintegrate because of a member choosing homosexuality and one parent chose to be supportive and the other adamantly opposed. As you can probably guess, if faced with such a situation, I would be the one who would be uncompromising since the entire LGBT... expression is an abomination and against nature itself. God destroyed entire cities for this particular sin to display his holy wrath and judgment against all who practiced and even those who simply found it acceptable. And God will cast all unrepentant sinners into eternal punishment even for what men may deem a very minor 'mistake'. However, never forget nor doubt that even the vilest sinner can be called by the Spirit and be granted repentance unto salvation according to God's eternal council. I am a prime example of God's mercy, grace and power to give new life in the Lord Christ. (cf. Ps 40:1-4) Amen!!

Thankyou for you input.
Like you I would not compromise in a situation like that either. I was told however, that it is not uncommon for a mother even when they know what their child is doing is wrong, choose to embrace them, rather than lose a relationship with their daughter/son.
We also have some good friends, whose daughter came out as a lesbian as an adult. Her mom (one of my wife's best friends) told her daughter than she will always love her, but as a Christian, she can not condone her lifestyle. As a result, the daughter disowned her mother and wants absolutely nothing to do with her. As a direct result, the girlfriend of our friend's daughter, confronted her mother and within inches of her face cussed her out. I am told that it took all her composure not to get violent with this women.
According to her husband, he is very concerned about his wife; because the whole experience has left her shaken.

I like the way you ended what you wrote, it is a great reminder of the grace and power of God.

This discussion is a great reminder of if not for the grace of God there go I. May He grant new life, repentance, and faith to those whom the devil has ensnared in his web of deceit.
