Is There Room In The Christian Church For The Transgender Preacher/Pastor/Teacher??
Reader, for me there is much confusion when it comes to the topic of transgender. According to GOOGLE transgender and homosexuality are two different things and should be treated as such. Transgender is a term used to describe people whose gender identity differs from the sex the doctor marked on their birth certificate. Gender identity is a person's internal, personal sense of being a man or a woman (or someone outside of that gender binary). While ‘Gay’, ’Lesbian’ and ‘Bisexual’ refer to sexual orientation, in other words – who you are attracted to. A man who is attracted to other men could identify as ‘Gay’ or ‘Homosexual.’
------------------The question I have, can both groups be considered an abomination to God?--------------------
The below statement comes from Bishop Demetrius Sinegal Facebook page:
No matter much you may downplay it THIS IS AN OFFENSE TO THE SACRED DESK. This man calls himself a pastor, the person standing beside him is the first lady....the problem....THEY'RE BOTH MEN. It's one thing to be in the pew, but calling yourself a pastor, leading people, and making THIS THEIR STANDARD. Church WAKE UP, if WE don't call foul on this type of atrocity we will be ALLOWING innocent babes in Christ to think this is ok. This is not love, this is a perversion. This is a DISGRACE to our seat as God's representatives and a disgrace to the church. Who am I to judge? I'm a Bishop in the lord's church, an apostle of faith and dominion, a prophet of God, a Christian; the righteous are CALLED to judge righteous judgement Again, I don't know these people, I don't know them to reach them, this is NOT about them, this is ABOUT THE CHURCH. The church is NOT weak, it is not perverse, it is DIVERSE, it is STRONG, it is HIS embassy. I don't want to attack them, I don't hate them, I don't want ANYONE writing hate speech, but we must BIBLICALLY attack this false representation.Thoughts?
