Dear Editor,

The article that appeared in the paper a few weeks ago, about the “transgender” individual, was very saddening. It seemed to imply this person’s actions were “okay.” I am not by any means making an attack on this individual, but I would like to say that choices like being a transgender are very wrong. It goes against the laws of nature, and worse than that, spits in the face of the mighty God Who made us. Genesis 1:27 says, “… God created man in His Own image … male and female created He them.” God made each person how He wanted them. He makes us either man or woman, and does not intend for that to change. For humans to decide they do not want to be the way God intended them to be is blasphemous and wrong. “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to Him that formed it, ‘Why hast thou made me thus?”  (Romans 9:20)

God specially made each individual the way they are. We should not mess with our minds or our bodies to make ourselves something He never intended us to be. The Bible says in Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil …”

Our whole culture is doing this. We should love the individuals, but we also need to hate the sin, and speak against it. And the only true fix for our sin is for us to realize that Jesus died in our place, for our sins, and we need to believe in Him to be saved.

Please note that this is not my personal opinion, but rather what God Himself plainly states in His Word.
