Transgender and/or Homosexual Children

Every day, there seems to be news reports about children as young as 2 or 3 "choosing" to be either the opposite sex or homosexual. Now, I don't know about you, but I quickly become skeptical about these claims. A 2 year old boy wanders into the room and sees his sister's Barbies™ on the floor, and picks them up and plays with them. Does that make him want to be a girl? If you leave him alone for a few minutes, I'm pretty certain that the Barbie play could turn violent (as in head pulled off, etc.). What about boys wanting to wear girl's clothes? Really? Can a 2 year old understand those types of decisions? What about parents not wanting to reveal their children's gender, allowing them to choose their gender at some point?

To me, these are silly scenarios. I can understand a child being born either genderless or with parts of genders. That is another more-complicated issue that I cannot go into in this post. However, this media-driven and society trend toward pushing children to choose transgenderism and/or homosexuality is ridiculous. California signed into law this week a bill allowing children to use whatever restroom they feel like they should use. The Girl Scouts (an organization that gives to Planned Parenthood to help support abortions, by the way) allows boys into it's organization now.

So, can someone explain to me how a 6 year old boy chooses to be a girl? What have the parents been teaching this child, or have they? Society is saying that it's not about choice, that it's about what they were born, but God says that he created male and female (Genesis 1:27). A boy born with boy parts as a boy, and vice versa. Yet, our society continues on this downward spiral of calling evil good and good evil. I very likely will be called a homophobe and/or racist for writing such a post. There is something inherent within us that causes us to choose sin, and that's called sin.

When a homosexual chooses to engage in the act of homosexuality, he is sinning, because that's what his nature tells him, due to the fall of the human race in Adam. The same goes for a murderer, a liar, and a thief. They choose to be those things, because of sin. We don't see society quite saying that a murderer was born that way or a liar was too. Even though, technically they are born that way. We all were born that way. Lady Gaga is right in her song, to an extent.

There is hope, however, and that hope is found in Jesus Christ. He has called us to put aside that sin that entangles us and cling to Him. He told the woman in adultery to go and sin no more (John 8:11). He did not condemn the thief at the cross who believed in him, but forgave him. Parents have caved to society's pressure to let their children be who society wants them to be. A sin has been accepted in society as not a sin, by even churches. Those churches do not deserve to even bear the name of Christ, the lies and deceit that they are teaching. I fear for the lives of these children that are being allowed to "choose" their own gender roles, even though their minds do not comprehend what they are choosing, even as young as 2 years old. I pray that they find Christ and and their parents find Christ, and their hearts are changed. Yes, I do believe that homosexuals and transgenders can change, but it's only Christ that can change them.
