"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." - 1 Cor. 6:9-11

"Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away." Col. 3:5-7

"Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. But that is not the way you learned Christ!—assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness." - Eph. 4:17-24

Well, of course, isn't it obvious that we should accept people as God made them...unless God flubbed it and made them a man when they should have been a woman? Then it's OK to try to change them.

Old and busted: "Try to stop being gay!"

The new hotness: "Try to stop being male!"

The first is h8 speech. The second is reason.

Honestly, America is lost.

"Honestly, America is lost."

I think you're right. Transgender is the new "in" thing. And if you thought the hostility was strong when it comes to speaking out against homosexuality, just try saying ANYTHING about transgender.

There's no reasoning with these people. None. At least with homosexuals there was hope of discussion. When it comes to transgender people, you can't even begin a conversation. You either celebrate this insanity, or you will be destroyed.

Excellent article, well put. Much appreciate the clear biblical approach. Thanks!
