Imagine.


I am a mostly-closeted transsexual woman and a Christian. I am also married and have three children. I write this as a believer to believers.
Galatians 1:8-9 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!
Galatians 5:12-14 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Here it is place the law bare before you. Love me as you would yourself.
Put yourself in my shoes. Imagine feeling that something is wrong about you begging and pleading with God to make it go away. Imagine feeling like you had to be something even though you weren’t. Imagine hating yourself and wanting to die. Imagine a day where you decide the world would be better off without you. Imagine failing.
Imagine then accepting who you are. Imagine making peace with God. Imagine telling your parents, siblings, and others.
What would you want? What would love be?
Would you want to be forced to out yourself every time you have to go pee? Would you want to have people that will kill you for no more reason than because you are expressing your truth?
Why would you tolerate or accept as normal a violent reaction? Why would you assume that I am a rapist or a child molester?
Why would you deny me in your church?
Why would you avoid me?
Are you living as Jesus did? Do you really know him?
I am your neighbor.
This is my cross and millions of others carry it too.
As a believer, I am asking you to reconsider your actions. I am telling you I am not your enemy. The anger and hatred that you might feel towards me does not come from God. Your pity is also not from God.
Moreover, I am warning you if your actions cause Gods children to turn from him, he will hold you accountable.
There are an estimated 100 million to 600 million LGBT people in the world and the vast majority of them believe that God is mean and evil or a fairy tale because the leaders of Christian movements say words that make them feel hated.
Why would someone you are loving think you hate them?
Because they are being killed, beaten, taunted, and generally condemned for doing nothing more than expressing their inner truth.
You want to love your neighbor as yourself? Put yourself in my shoes. Hear what is being said.
There are always examples of people living a life that is filled with horrible sin and debauchery but you can’t possibly expect that to change when the message from the majority of believers is that God doesn’t really accept them. Doesn’t want them in their church. Doesn’t recognize their loved ones. Takes joy in their affliction.
Change that message and watch all of HEAVEN open up with a revival larger than any before. Imagine 400 million people turned to God.
Imagine.
