The Transformation of a Society

What a glorious Time to be alive!

We are presently living in a day & age where the transformation of a formerly male athlete into a 'female engenders more social prominence than the transformation of our police force into a military-style gang of legal thugs! In this day & age, it seems that the societially accepted 'norm' is to 'come out', whether it's as a homosexual ( male or female ) or as a 'transgender'. 'What is a 'transgender'?', one might ask; according to the Wikipedia article on the subject, 'Transgender is the state of one's gender identity or gender expression not matching one's assigned sex'. Notwithstanding the genetics involved & the unavoidable depth to which feelings register in this whole debacle, what it all comes down to is feelings, the feeling that one doesn't belong where the Creator has placed them, the feeling that the Creator made a mistake when they were formed in the womb!

Admittedly, the differences between male & female, in certain instances, anyway, have become blurred over the years! They are apparently examples out there ( of both sexes? ) where certain sexual organs are present. Without going too far into the subject ( it may be uncomfortable for most ), hermaphroditism has been found in certain ( rare ) human beings; according to the Wikipedia article on this subject, 'Aside from having an ambiguous-looking external genitalia, true hermaphroditism in humans differs from pseudohermaphroditism in that the person's karyotype has both XX and XY chromosome pairs'. For whatever reason, the Creator of all has structured our human biology in such a way as to allow for a form of evolution, that is to say, that to a point, our biology allows us to become what we eat: as the 80s rock group Petra wrote, 'Garbage in, garbage out'!

It is easy for most of us, Christians especially to disregard these anomalies out of hand, one might say & 'chalk it up to the fallen or sin nature of man; this would be akin to saying, 'he ( or she ) is just acting out; it's just a phase'! The plain, or not so plain, fact of the matter is, whether these anomalies stem from rebellious feelings or not, as the case may be, the anomalies ARE present; we MUST deal with them & yes, we must LOVE them, not what we would call the abnormalities, maybe, but definitely the human beings ( for they ARE still fellow humans, formed in the Creators Divine Image )!

Homosexuals, on the other hand, are made so by choice, their own ( individual ) choice! Now, some, most even, will say that they are more attracted to members of their own sex through no choice of their own; ' that's just the way it is'! My personal theory, on both sides of the equation, is that they have been so mistreated by members of the opposite sex that they have turned for comfort & healing to those of the same sex! Another theory is that this has gone on for so long that the biology ( micro ) of certain individuals has evolved/mutated on genetic levels so that there actualy is a genetic explanation for these anomalies!

The point is, being transgender is a choice, a choice to give in to one's feelings of inadequacy! Bruce ( AKA, Caitlyn ) Jenner has always wanted to be a women! Well, maybe not always; his treatment of the women in his life & their subsequent treatment of him most likely had a lot to do with his choice, but I'm sure there were other factors involved as well. Though there are always certain factors involved & options to be considered, it all comes down to personal choice! Were you made thus & thus? Okay; deal with it! We always have a choice in how we react to the circumstances of life; whether it's homosexuality or transgenderism, hermaphroditism or some form of disability!

Will you give in to your basest feelings, as so many others have done, or will you choose to triumph over those feelings & be the best of what your Creator has made you to be? Will you choose to live according to the feelings that are subsequent to change, or will you live according to the Law of Love & in Blessed Communion with the Creator of All? We were given our individual biology for one purpose; to glorify our Creator & to use our weak humanity to serve Him; any other use is abuse!
