Caitlyn Jenner and Jesus Christ

If you have been on the internet at all over the past few days, you know about Caitlyn Jenner’s cover photo and the resulting social media backlash from both sides: “I’m so happy that she can be herself.”  “That *insert bigoted slur here* is so creepy.”  “Mutilation doesn’t make you a man…still calling you, Bruce.”  Are just a few examples of things I’ve seen and, unfortunately, witnessed.

Most shocking/not shocking are first hand accounts of other Christians deliberately mocking and shaming her.  If that’s you, then this post is for you.

You should know I know very little about trans culture and the people who struggle with it. I am trying to learn.  Also, if by some chance Caitlyn reads this, I want you to know I do not think you’re disgusting or repulsive.  I don’t think Jesus thinks you are either.

1. Caitlyn is a human being

It’s really sad that a lot of Christians need to remember or even hear that.  A pillar of our faith is that humans…all humans, are created in the Image of God, making us have intrinsic value, meaning, and purpose.  That stands true regardless of actions or choices of any individual, including pursuing a sex transition.  I’m so glad God doesn’t define us by our past, present or future, but rather He defines us by His love for us.

2. You’re not being like Jesus

Making comments like the aforementioned has no place in the Kingdom of God.  Remember how Jesus hung out with lepers and even touched them?  In Jesus’ time, lepers were considered some of the most disgusting humans on Earth.  Lepers were generally excommunicated from their city and certainly not allowed to enter the temple.  If anyone touched a leper, that person would also become unclean and had to undergo a cleaning process before being reinstated to the community.  But here we have Jesus…touching one.  Jesus didn’t mock someone because they were different – he invited them to commune with him.

3. Take some time to understand

There is increasing and convincing evidence that Gender Dysphoria is a medical condition that affects trans people.  Which means, they are stuck with it.  How many times did Jesus ever mock or bully a person because of the biological hand they were dealt?  Not once.  In fact, he actually stood up for them.  Every person, no matter what circumstances have happened in their life, have developed struggles.  For some it might be an addiction.  For others it might be self-harm or depression.  For Caitlyn, it’s her identity.  A staggering 41% of all transgender people have attempted suicide at least once in their life. Before you post something on social media, take a moment to get over your political agenda and remember – every life matters to God.

4. Understanding is not condoning

So much of our culture as Americans is about standing up for what we believe in and doing it almost to the point of ad nauseam, but here’s my opinion.  Is what Caitlyn doing right now God’s best?  I don’t think so.  Do I think God desires anyone to pursue a sex change? No.  Do I think God understands though?  Yes.
Jesus became a human 2,000 years ago and because he was human, he can identify with our struggles: 

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. – Hebrews 4.15

Notice how the author of Hebrews said Jesus was tempted in every way.  That means whatever life throws our way Jesus understands.  That goes for transgender people too.

  1. Matt,
    I am so happy you posted this…. So many Christian people have been hateful towards Caitlyn Jenner and it makes me sick that people are so mean.

    We all have struggled in one way or another.

  2. Lepers had a disease and no cure at that time, they did not chose to have this disease. Those born with deformities had no choice in the matter. Bruce Jenner made a choice. He took his “temple” and chose to mutilate it rather than seek and continue with psychological help. You are correct that we are all created in the image of God, His creation and Mr. Jenner was created a man, no matter how he felt inside, he was created a man and the God I serve does not make mistakes. I am thankful that I have a forgiving God and pray that Mr. Jenner seeks a relationship with Jesus Christ and receives forgiveness.

    1. God doesn’t make mistakes, but people are born with both male and female genitalia sometimes. People are born with an extra chromosome sometimes. Physical, genetic gender is sometimes fluid (whether or not that’s the case here I don’t know) and then what? What’s the moral choice for those people– to live as dual gendered, the way God made them? Or to pick one, and likely even have surgery, so they can identify as male or female according to their own choice and fit into gender norms? There are cases in which gender isn’t even physically clear cut. This is an issue that I don’t understand or know yet how to respond properly as a Christian, but I do think it’s a complex issue, that to treat it as a simple one is to dismiss those who have this struggle, and that we should be seeking to genuinely love and relate to those who are transgendered.

      1. I couldn’t have said it better myself!! I’ve really been struggling with this. I’m a Christian but I’ve been struggling a little bit because I don’t really feel like I think most Christians feel that I’m “supposed” to feel (if that makes sense?)… I do know this much though, Bruce/Caitlyn won’t have to answer to me when that day comes. So why should I judge what he/she does? It doesn’t affect me, my kids, our lives, etc. If that is what makes him happy and chooses to do, then so be it! Poor power to him/her. God forgives rapist, murderers, etc without even a single thought. All sin is sin…there’s no bigger sin than another. If what he’s doing is “wrong” then that’s what he/she will have to deal with. Not me. Great response!! 😉

    2. Amen BELFLOWER1957!!! In Hebrews 4:15 Jesus was tempted as we all are everyday. However, the key point to this verse is that even though Jesus was tempted on every side HE DID NOT SIN! We are made in the image of God and we are to be like Christ and SIN NOT!!! No matter how hard that is!!! Everything is not a “medical disorder”, despite what this world tries to make us believe!
      Ephesians 6:12 – For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Jesus did gather with those that were “Cast Out” and He loved them as He still does, but He did not condone their sin and tell them “Oh , you were born this way so just be who you feel you need to be and be happy, it’s okay”. We can love people in their sin, but we must lead them to the truth that is in Jesus Christ! 1 Corinthians 3: 16-18 – 16.Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17. If any man defile the temple of God , him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 18. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

      1. So Dawn your saying that if I have surgery to remove something it’s a sin no I think not ! No I don’t believe a he sould become a she or the other way around but I belive in love for all and that is what our Lord wants us learn is to love

      2. Is one sin greater than another? 3/4 of Americans are overweight and obsessed with food yet we don’t carry signs that say “fatties go to Hell”?? And quote scripture about gluttony?? Loving someone is not saying his/her sin is okay. It is treating them like a human with a story and struggles which is exactly what Jesus does EVERYDAY, EVERY SECOND for YOU and for me. The church is all about pointing fingers and quoting scripture when convenient. Leading people to Christ starts with meeting them where they are which requires people to get out of their church pews… something the Church doesn’t seem to want to do anymore.

      3. My understanding is that Jesus wants us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, which means wanting what is best for someone. Sometimes I dont know what is best for people. I don’t walk in others shoes, although I may try to understand. I think the answer to what is best for Caitlyn is between her and God. There is no way for me to know the answer. And I fear that it’s prideful to think otherwise. While I can appreciate that people may be well intentioned when trying to point out something they believe to be sinful, I also think it is easy to slip into focusing too much on other people’s stuff rather than working on our own. An observers opinion about Caitlyns decision being right or wrong seems at the end of the day, rather irrelevant to me. Faith means we will trust God has the wisdom and understanding when perhaps we are falling short. Hope is a solid trust that whether we like what is happening or not, events will transpire for the good. And God’s love teaches that in the midst of it all…loving each other is the ultimate mercy. God is love.

        My fault is that I have a difficult time showing mercy and love for people who don’t do that for Caitlyn. I will be working on that. Like you dont agree with or understand Caitlyn, I don’t agree with or understand you. Looks like we are the same after all. Thankful that God understands and loves us both.

      4. Just one question to you Dawn Kennedy…..are you over weight??? Do you over eat? PROBABLY!! Better be careful…..I think there is a whole lot more to these Bible verses….throwing around the Bible to fit your judgement is wrong!!! How about…John 3:16 For God so love the world that He gave his only SON, so that WHOSOEVER believes in HIM shall not perish but have everlasting life!!! Are you saying because he made this choice he doesn’t believe? You can’t help to lead someone to the Lord if you point the way….you have to show them the way…..just a thought!! Jesus loves Bruce Jenner and we do not know where he stands with God….our job is to love him right where he is at….God will take care of the rest!!

    3. Bellflower, I understand what you’re trying to say here, but this is exactly why trying to push your own opinions does not necessarily work. How many of us wear makeup, style our hair, exercise to look a certain way, adorn ourselves with clothing and accessories to feel beautiful, eat ourselves silly until we are overweight and riddled with health issues, etc.? These are only a few examples of the things we do to our “temple”. To claim that he/she (Jenner) has done the ultimate mutilation to the body seems a little harsh and unfair. It seems popular in our culture that everyone HAS to have an opinion on everything. Why is that? Why do we let the media influence not only opinions, but even the things we think about? I have not paid much close attention to this story, nor do I have a clear opinion on it. Does it really matter? When we come before God at some point, do we believe He’s going to applaud us for our “opinions” on such matters? I think it would be wise for us all to take a step back and ask ourselves what really matters, our opinions on such things or the simple compassion we can show people day to day, no matter their struggles. Jenner has obviously struggled, in ways I cannot relate…maybe it’s time to leave this to him/her and God.

    4. Following your line of logic…. then a baby born with a heart defect should not have corrective surgery because God does not make mistakes? The choice then is to allow the baby to die?

    5. Good thing you are here to throw the first stone. I have too many of my own sins to worry about his. While I don’t agree with what he has done and do believe that it is sin, I will not be casting stones at him. Just curious, since you brought up him mutilating his temple…. Did you ever wear braces on your teeth? Have you ever indulged a little too long at the dinner table? Have you ever had alcohol? Ever smoked? Ever stayed out in the sun a little too long? You too have done damage to your temple. Be careful, dear Pharisee, about assuming you are better than someone else.

    6. Belflower1957…the only reason “Christians” can point at Mr. Jenner and shake their head and say that he should ask for forgiveness is because it’s in your face!! If it’s true that sin is sin in the eyes of God, then “Christians” need to look around….you don’t see the person who abuses children sitting in the pew across from you in church….he or she can hide it….you don’t see the man or woman cheating on their spouse in the other pew…..they hide it…you don’t see the addicted to porn, drugs, or alcohol person who is in the front of church yelling “amen”…it is hidden…..This “sin” is in your face and you can see it…before you shake that finger and head….stop and remember….just because Mr. Jenner has changed his appearance doesn’t mean he is living in sin….many people have surgery to change their appearance….are you assuming that he is having sex??? hmmmm….maybe not!! If plastic surgery needs forgiveness then….there is a WHOLE lot of people in trouble …including your local pastors….it maybe that some “Chiristians” are going to asking for forgiveness for judging!!!

      1. Deuteronomy 22:5 says this. “A woman should not wear a mans garment, nor should a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.” I do agree with you when you say we should not judge. The devil has formed a stronghold in Bruce over a long time that only Jesus can break. Prayers to Bruce, love you brother.

      2. Also I would like to interject on John 3:16. I believe this is often misunderstood. Satan, Demons, and Satan Worshippers believe in Jesus, are they going to Heaven? I would say probably not. John 1 tells us that Jesus is the word and the word is Jesus. So whoever believes in the word of God and follows it, not just the mere existence of Jesus, will have everlasting life. Mathew 7:21-23 says this “not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles? Then I will tell them PLAINLY, ‘I never knew you. Away from me you evil doers!.” God bless all.

    7. Your post sounds so condescending. YOUR God made Bruce Jenner, the soul. The body is secondary. I don’t see that forgiveness from God is needed in Jenner’s decision. And you have no idea what Jenner’s relationship is with his God. Maybe you could ask God to forgive your judgemental stand.

    8. So a baby born with a cleft palate should just live with it cause god doesn’t make mistakes? A woman with breast cancer shouldn’t make the choice to have her breast removed because god doesn’t make mistakes? Obviously Caitlyn Jenner didn’t feel like she was created as a man so who are you to say that she was?

      If there does come a time when your god judges you, I think you may be in for a big surprise

    9. Wow, here’s another greatly misinformed individual. Google “Gender Identity.” Do just a little research and you’ll find that “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” are no more a choice than whether you are left or right handed or have brown eyes or blue. Too many Christians judging people based on misinformation and ignorance and not the facts. Just because we are Christians, doesn’t mean that we should check our brain in at the door.

    10. Amen…..I agree. Healing could have been found; now Caitlin will have to pursue that, I pray he finds Him.

    11. So you’re saying that Gender Dysphoria is not a disease or condition? How is God creating someone with Gender Dysphoria any different than God creating someone with Down’s Syndrome or Schizophrenia? Because you can’t physically see a disability or disease you assume it does not exist? I don’t believe God makes mistakes, either. I believe that Christians who choose to not live in a Christ like manner with true love in their hearts do. I often wonder why God would creates some of us with physical and mental challenges. Can it be that he does so to see how us “Christians” choose to treat them? Do we treat them as Christ would have, with love and compassion or do we judge and condemn? What Christians fail to realize is when they judge they turn people from Christianity instead of leading them to Christ. Humans are imperfect. God made us that way and our judgement should be left to Him.

    12. So… since Bruce/Caitlyn “made a choice” to have this medical condition as described above, when did YOU make the choice to be free of a condition such as this? Since when is a medical condition a sin? If you truly believe that God doesn’t make mistakes, then accept people for who they are and who they become as they journey on His Earth. Bruce/Caitlyn doesn’t need God’s forgiveness for being who he/she is. We really need to stop trying to figure everything out down here… God’s got it covered.

  3. I have seen some seriously mean hateful things on Facebook lately regarding Caitlyn and it makes me ashamed to call those people my friends. Thank you for posting this!

  4. Matt thank you for showing the love that Christ has for all of us. I truly feel that we miss the mark with topics like this on occasion. The crazy part of this is that people can forget, God loves her as much as he loves us all. We are all his children. John 8 covers the condemnation of others rather well (“He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”) We need to be careful not to become the high priests ourselves, there is more than fair notation of how they completely missed on God’s will for us.

  5. There was a study done back in the 90’s that did show there is a physical abnormality within the brain of a transsexual and a later study performed in the US backed those findings. There are over 40 known types of intersexed people known to exist. I say God makes no mistakes and everything is for a reason. Before you go passing judgement on anyone best know at least some of the facts. The reality is that we do not know the full circumstances of Jenners journey that is between Jenner and God alone and not our job or right to judge.

  6. Thank you for tackling this tough subject and communicating you stance, the biblical stance, and how we as Christians should react. We are called to love others and we can love other without loving sin. His sin is no greater than our sin and we should not throw stones at his sins, as we would not want others to throw them at our sins. I don’t believe it is God’s best for him nor do I believe that sin we struggle with day by day is God’s best for us. We shouldn’t condemn him or cast him out. We should pray for him. Pray that he recognizes his sin and strives to turn away from it, as each of us much do with our own sin.

  7. I do not think that it is our place to judge the choices of others. God gave each of us free will and it is up to God to judge our choices. Regardless of whether something is right or wrong it does not give anyone the right to be hateful and cruel. Jesus said “he who is without sin cast the first stone”. That is valid today as well. One sin is no worse than another with exception to blasphemy. Let’s try to rember that we are supposed to love our brother as we love ourselves. Caitlin Jenner is a human being regardless of the choices made. Our behavior as Christians is scrutinized daily and when we don’t follow the teachings of Christ we are setting a bad example of Christianity and taint the possibility of bringing others into Gods open arms. Please, think twice before you spread hate and cruelty. Pray for Caitlin and each other. I pray that God will guide our feet down the right path.

  8. Great thoughts, Matt. I noticed it didn’t take long for the finger wagging, bible verse quoting , and shaming comments to start popping up. I’m curious to ask these folks: have you pierced your ears, do you have a tattoo? Do you wear makeup, polish your nails? Do you style or color your hair? Why? Did God make a mistake? Why do you feel the need to “improve” or defile God’s creation? I pity any family or friends of these folks who think everything can be cured or fixed through prayer and piety. Do they accept depression, anxiety, addictions, etc. as sins and “choices”, as well? Keep telling yourselves what you’re teaching is right and ordained by God. Then you can explain to Him one day why all those “sinners” didn’t want to find out about Him because you were His representative. Think about that while you are quoting bible verses and turning your backs on “sinners.”

  9. Thank you Matt for sharing this post and your heart on this sensitive subject. It truly sheds light on how we, as Christians, should love one another and never judge. In my personal experience and attacks towards me and my struggles, it always saddens me that people tend to be so harsh towards things they do not understand. You might not agree with something someone else has said or done, but it doesn’t give that person the right to show so much hate. Even if you truly disagree, love that person, pray for them and try to see things from their perspective too. Again, you do not have to agree with the actions or support them (aka reposting hateful comments all over social media), but God calls us to love people “where they are”. As we always say at church “it’s ok not to be ok, but it’s not ok to stay that way.” Share your love with others, share the gospel in love, not hate or condemnation.

  10. Excellent Article & very well put.
    Shame on those who are hateful and judgmental they too are with sin right?
    May God open our hearts & eyes to a better understanding of others and please help us with out tolerance of others.

  11. God did not make Bruce Jenner a woman. he was made on this earth as a man.with me and body parts. performed as a man in the Olympics. my thought is that if he was not created a woman then that’s what God meant for him to be is a man.if you read the Bible that I read God makes no day we’ll all have to answer for our sins but thank God we’re all sinners saved by grace. but I do not believe that he is it Caitlin he is Bruce Jenner that is what God made him.

  12. What a bunch of blasphemy! My Jesus/God is Holy and righteous and never creates evil. He created Bruce Jenner as a man with perfect DNA. The DNA CANNOT be changed- so Bruce is still a man now with his choice to live as a woman apart from God’s perfect plan.
    You twist the scriptures to accommodate this cultural warp by shaming us to “act like Jesus” when you really have no concept who He is. My God is an all consuming fire, loving those who repent and love Him. For the lost and depraved He weeps over their abominations, BUT make no mistake- He is about to pour out His Wrath on the ungodly. Except they repent- they will all likewise perish. Read the rest of Scripture. It never contradicts !!!

  13. While mocking and jeering is not Christ like . We cannot condone such outward deprave and immoral circumstances . Of course if you are part of the world I guess it’s your choice but the bible tell us not to be as the world. With such notable characters of the world painting an abnormal picture of what is a man and woman we cannot agree being salt of the world. However such reprimand should be with the kindness and love that Jesus Christ have( Christlikeness) Bruce Jenner you were born a man and still is . May God help you

  14. I don’t condemn Bruce Jenner for his actions, I love him and I pray for him. However, I do condemn the glorification of his transformation and the attempt to make it acceptable to mainstream, which is the work of the prince of the power of the air(ephesians 2:2). Love(mark 12:31) Bruce but hold firm(2 thes. 2:15). Love from the Greek word “agape” which means respect, affection, benevolence, good will, and concern for one’s welfare. If you are concerned for someone’s welfare do you not tell them why?

  15. Hello. I don’t know you but I saw this article shared on Facebook and I thought I should come and say a few things. It seems that people are being very careless with their words today and that isn’t a good thing.

    I do find it odd when some edgy news story breaks that Christian bloggers find it necessary to quickly post warnings about being like Jesus and not saying things you shouldn’t about a certain situation. From what I can see it is simply click bait. It is the urge to be in the center of all controversy and wishing to make your voice heard. Instead of speaking about 4 things to consider why not post the 1 thing that is true: Sin is disgusting and should always be hated. We are to be set apart and what does that mean? We should not condone or even side with sin in any way shape or form.

    I’m not saying you have done this but what you have done is put up some unnecessary confusion on the matter. It is true we are called to love others and to have compassion but saying one is shocked and disgusted by this act of sin is not wrong nor should it be cast as such. I am appalled at the Christian who does not speak out about self mutilation. I am disgusted at blog posts that distract from the real issue of sin. Reference for you is John 3:19-20, Eph 5:11-13. We are to expose the evil deeds not reprimand others for doing so.

    You also don’t help the situation calling Caitlyn a her. He is a he and I’m sorry you are missing this simple fact. Is it true that he has a mental disorder? He seems to suffer from some type of delusions of being a woman but does that mean we condone this behavior? May it never be. I don’t tell a person who has delusions of being a turtle they are in fact a turtle nor do I call the crazed man on the corner God because he has claimed deity. Does this make sense?

    So Matt, I have a few suggestions and what I feel to be words of wisdom for you. I will do this to each of your points:

    Point 1:
    This is a true point. Caitlyn (I will use this name because I believe he has had it legally changed and a name does not define sex) is indeed a human but what is the point? Also, where does it say we are defined by God’s love for us in scripture? I don’t ever remember seeing this. I also love how you have seemingly made God the one who has defined Caitlyn as a she instead of a he. Interesting.

    Point 2:
    God mocked those who are wicked. Psalm 2:4 and Psalm 37:13. I’m not saying that we as created being should do this because it is quite possible for us to sin in this manner but YHVH does this to those who are wicked. This is simply food for thought for you. Another point, Caitlyn is not a leper but someone who is acting upon delusions and being celebrated for it. He genuinely needs help but instead Christians post things about compassion and the secular world cheers for the sin.

    Point 3:
    Yes he is stuck with this as long as sin is present and until the Messiah comes, but this has little to do with the fact that sin should not be identified. Something to think on: In Matthew 15 verses 22-28 a Canaanite woman is compared to a dog simply because she is not a Hebrew. Was Jesus wrong in doing so? I agree every single life matters but not in the way you’re probably saying it. YHVH wants every life to live for him according to his word not on their own understanding of the world.

    Point 4:
    Again I point back to scripture where we are commanded to expose what is in the darkness. Stand up for the Word of YHVH and don’t add more confusion to the issue at hand.

    Lastly, I don’t really know if you can say that Jesus struggled with same sex attraction and wanting to be a woman. It is like saying that Jesus experienced all the struggles of a woman. Don’t assume what the text isn’t saying. May this find you well Matt and know that I say these things because I hold fast to YHVH and His word. Let us teach that this is not okay to celebrate this self mutilation and it is not okay for the world to cheer it on. Let us pray for Caitlyn but not forget that he is actively living in sin.

  16. @ Jackie > I am going to unashamedly “steal” much of your comment! 🙂
    In fact, I like it better than Matt’s article (sorry Matt). And to piggyback off of that, I will say the same thing Jesus said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
    It’s not our place to judge…period. There is only one Judge, and He will make everything right when He comes again. Whether you agree with Jenner’s decision, doesn’t matter. How you respond to it, does, so be careful you are not condemning yourself while being so swift to condemn another.
    God’s Peace to all!

  17. @Gary and @Jackie

    The problem with both of your statements is that we know what is right and best between Caitlyn and YHVH because His Word tells us what is best. I don’t quite understand Christians and other peoples need to be quick to call for compassion instead of preaching and teaching the full counsel of YHVH. Yes Gary, there is only one Judge but that didn’t stop any of the Prophets in the Hebrew Bible from calling out the sin and calling for the people of Israel to return to their God and Lord YHVH.

    Jesus’ entire message was about repentance. Take a moment of your time to read Matthew 10 and tell me that Jesus didn’t come to produce division. We should be disgusted by the act that has been performed not calling the world to “understand and accept” while saying that tolerance and compassion are not condoning the behavior. I have yet to see one blog post that has called the act performed for what it is: SIN. It is taking the image of YHVH and defiling it and that is kind to say so.

    I am saddened that our society has taught Caitlyn (again only using this name because I believe he had a legal name change, not out of some inner desire to reaffirm his delusions) that it is okay to do what he did because he needs to be who he thinks he is, to find his “real” identity. We should have prayed diligently instead of stand by and watch this train wreck occur while the rest of society cheered it on. Think for a second my friends, brothers and sisters; why are we not calling people to repent for seeing this as a courageous move forward?

    If you’re a follower of the Most High God, the God of Israel YHVH, then please do not add to the smoke screen that is currently being thrown up instead call for truth to be preached and prayer to be heard. Caitlyn is in serious need of help and should be treated the same as any other person with a serious mental disorder who suffers from delusions. How would you care for your clinically depressed sibling or one who had schizophrenia? You wouldn’t cheer on their decision to perform acts against our Lord. I pray this sits well with each of you.

  18. It’s odd how passionate y’all get about things that in no way affect you.

    There’s no such thing as an all powerful being that sits up in the sky judging people, and when you pray, you are talking to yourself.

    But if there is sin in the world, that angry, hateful feeling you get your chest toward other people, is probably the worst one, and using religion as an excuse to be an asshole to people is too.

  19. ” God is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 When God created Adam He was made in the image of God and then God removed a rib from Adam to made Eve.
    When Eve disobeyed God and ate of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil , sin entered into the world, because God had said ,”of all of the trees in the garden you can eat of EXCEPT , THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. They felt so guilty that they took fig leaves and put them around their body parts that once had been exposed without feeling guilty.
    The enemy took sex in the Garden of Eden and made it into what it is today, the downfall of men and women. Eve walked through the Garden and Satan was the one person she was to leave alone. How do I know this? In heaven Satan knew the knowledge of Good and then he turned on God wanting to be greater and knew evil. He was the tree of knowledge if good and evil. Cain was produced from this tree. In 1 John 3:12 “Not as Cain who was of the wicked one.” All of the sexual problems we had started here. Satan is the enemy. We need to pray for those who have fell into his trap. Whether it be formication, adultery, sex change, same sex lovers which the Bible calls unnatural or any sexual sins. Truly love the sinner, but not the sin. I have no hatred in my heart for anyone because I know that I can not enter heaven with hatred in my heart. My prayers are for people to “work out their own salvation as with fear and trembling as unto the Lord. Gal 6:1 ” If you see your brother overtaken in a fault restore such one with a spirit of meekness.” If anyone is my brother or sister I am to seek to restore him so he or she will make things right and go to heaven. God bless you all.
