⭐What Does God Think?👼
« on: September 25, 2021, 08:44:00 pm »
I found this book on the internet and I purchased a copy of it.  It helps to answer the questions on fitting in if you're Christian and you use the Bible and are a trans person.  It also helps other people to understand where we fit in as well.

I'm really excited to start reading it and I wanted to share it with you guys in this forum.

The author is Cheryl B Evans and the title of the book is, What Does God Think? Transgender People and the Bible

I think God has a sense of humor.  ;D

For myself, I struggled with my religious understanding and the apparent conflicts with my gender dysphoria. I finally came to the realization that God is more concerned about my spiritual self.

I know God exists because I've experienced divine intervention, once. That being said, I am realizing that God wouldn't want me to be a depressed, overweight, mass of anxiety causing heart palpitations, raising my blood pressure, and losing sleep. I declare the Christ and He will declare me. Moving forward, I have learned to accept myself, all of me, and lean on the understanding that God will sanctify me.  Whether I end up a boy or girl doesn't matter at this point.

Prayers for guidance resulted in the path I'm on, which includes my transition. Religious extremists may disagree, but that's on them. Let them argue with God.
