In this episode, we discuss how to talk to your children (and others) about transgenderism and other LGBT issues, from a Biblical perspective. We recently witnessed several young children at the playground conversing with each other about LGBT and transgender issues. It was surprising to hear that type of talk coming from children.
If we as Christians believe in the authority of scripture, then we must continue to uphold God’s created order for our identities, our marriages, and our families. How can we engage with people on this topic when they don’t embrace the Bible as the inerrant word of God?
We need to love them, while compassionately discussing the issue of identity, sin, and failure to believe who they are in Christ. This isn’t just an issue of dealing with gender confusion. It’s a sin issue. We all fail to identify with Christ when we sin, regardless of the type of sin. Helping people to understand their identity in Christ is the catalyst for change in behavior.
We encourage you to practice hospitality not only to your like-minded church friends but also to people that you may not feel as comfortable with in your home. We believe this is the way to connect with and show compassion to people that need Jesus.
