I understand. I really do.
I watched the Diane Sawyer interview with Bruce Jenner Friday evening on ABC’s 20/20. Surely by now most everybody knows Bruce has decided after becoming a very successful Olympic Gold Medalist, husband and father of several children, that at the age of 65 years is he going to have a sex change from a man to a woman probably in a year. He wants everybody to be understanding. I understand. I really do.
I understand that in the beginning God made man. He made Adam in His own likeness. He made him to have dominion over all the creation of the earth. (Genesis 2:7)
I understand that God saw that Adam needed a helper, a woman, and He made Eve from a rib taken from the side of Adam. Eve was a weaker vessel, but she would fulfill Adam’s needs. (Genesis 2:18-25)
I understand that God made man and woman and told them to multiply and replenish the earth. (Genesis 1:28; 9:1)
I understand that man and woman sinned by disobeying God’s plan for their lives in the beautiful Garden of Eden when Eve listened to Satan and ate of the forbidden fruit. As a result of this sin nothing was ever the same for man again. (Genesis 3:1-24)
I understand that God is perfect, He makes no mistakes. He will not take our sinful ideas and actions lightly. Punishment is promised for those who disobey Him. (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9)
I understand to disobey God, to say by our actions, “God, you made a mistake when you made me the way I am, and I’m going to correct your error,” is like spitting in the very face of God, our great Creator.
I understand to support individuals who openly disobey God is condoning their actions.
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a living God”
