What Should The Christian Church Say to Bruce Jenner?


Bruce Jenner been trending all weekend and the church community have not been asleep. Transgender is a term for people whose gender identity — their internal, personal sense of being a man or a woman — differs from what’s typically associated with their sex at birth. Some transgender people alter their bodies through hormones and or surgery, although many don’t.

Anyhow, Southern Baptist Convention’s Russell Moore offers a solution to alienation from identities that transgender people struggle with. The problem is, he explained, that the old Gnostic heresy combined with contemporary expressive individualism gives rise to “the idea that I must be true to whomever I perceive my ‘real me’ to be on the inside in order to be ‘authentic.'”

They feel alienated from their identities as men or women and are seeking a solution to that in self-display or in surgery or in pumping their bodies with the other sex’s hormones. In a fallen universe, all of us are alienated, in some way, from who were designed to be. That alienation manifests itself in different ways in different people.” Understanding their struggles, however, doesn’t mean we should “fall for the cultural narrative behind the transgender turn,” Moore warned. “This narrative is rooted in the ancient heresy of Gnosticism, with the idea that the ‘real’ self is separate from who one is as an embodied, material being. Body parts and chromosomal patterns are dispensable since the self is radically disconnected from the body, the psychic from the material.”

    1. They should love Him like Jesus. Don't force the bible down his throat, then He will resist against it. By loving Him I don't mean approve His actions, I mean show Him Jesus with your actions not with your words. Jesus called us to love not to judge. Let Jesus do the judging.

    3. That's ...uncalled for. That's your example of Christ? Name calling and cursing? Then dismissing the person you're addressing? You do realize you're talking to real people right? We shouldn't behave this way on a church blog.

  5. I knew a transgender who had to have surgery and a none functioning uterus was found in his body. I work with people with developmental disabilities and have seen some with vestiges of both male and female genitalia. What if God allowed these anamolies as a test of our compassion?
