There are few issues in the world these days that trigger more emotion than sexuality and gender. Unfortunately, many on all sides of the issues have become so angry it prevents them from loving one another and listening to those involved. God desires we live in joy, and He knows how he designed us to experience that in our lives.
We can have very strong thoughts about being with the same sex or changing our gender. That does not mean those thoughts or feelings are from God or that He wants us to act on them.
We each face a different set of temptations and are all involved in a spiritual battle for our souls. Satan attempts to deceive us and urges us to question God’s perfect design and plan. One of Satan’s oldest ploys is to make us dissatisfied with how God made us. To some he whispers, “You’re fat and ugly.” To others, “You’re stupid and clumsy.” And to still others, “You look like a boy, but you’re really a girl.” In each case, Satan’s underlying message is the same: “God messed up on you.”
These are simply lies meant to push people further from God and think they will be happy if they are something they were not created to be. God clearly tells us sex is meant only for a husband and wife relationship so any sex outside of that is contrary to his perfect design and harmful to us. He loves us and does not want us to pursue sexual relationships outside his perfect design or change gender. He desires for each of us to grow closer to Him and find true joy and purpose through His love for us.
