Sin and Prayer



Are there any other trans people who contemplate sin because of cause and effect rather than what is said in the bible? Tonight I prayed to my Father ruler of the universe, that I had been overly tempted by pornography, and had committed adultery in a number of ways. I also prayed  for forgiveness that I had engaged in oral sex anonymously at the LGBT center in NYC. You see I only prayed to have these temptations removed, because I was humbled to the point where they became a problem. I am happily married, but was chased down the street three times. I have to believe my excusals and rationalizations of adultery set me up for this. I am being scared straight again, but am glad that as a Transgender I can turn to the Lord and ask for the sin to be removed. I am curious how other <transgender people> view sin, adultery, outside of the bible, but by asking our Father to have them removed.

For me, as an Atheist, there is only the golden rule.

One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.
One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated.

There is also no heavenly forgiveness. So if I were to do something wrong, I would just live with he guilt, but I never do anything wrong so I'm always ok.
