GOD has Created each one of us in a specific design which cannot be altered, regardless of what lies, we embrace. We are born either male or female. Our DNA is not the only deciding factor which makes us male or female, we have over 6,500 genetic markers that make us distinctly male or distinctly female. No surgery in the world can change our sex that GOD Almighty created us to be. Changing our sex is not possible. Even with a sexual reassignment surgery (now known as 'gender-affirming-surgery'), we remain what and who we were Created to be, even if we choose to mutilate our genitalia.
Transgenderism is not a sexual orientation at all, but just one of the many types of confusion (mental disorders), a type of bondage. Those who tell us that it is just one of many sexual orientations seek to keep us in bondage, whether they know it or not.
Once we embrace our design, we can find the Freedom from the bondage of confusion and we can discover our true identity in JESUS The CHRIST, as we learn the root of our stronghold, and deal with it. Being set free from transgenderism is just as obtainable, just as real, and just as common, as a drug addict being set free from the stronghold of drugs. Our "true self" is exactly who we were created to be from conception.
Sex means biological sex! Its definition did not change because someone suffers from a disorder. Each of us is born with a race, a color, a sex, an orientation and a nationality. Sex is objective, not subjective, and binary — either male or female. Gender dysphoria is confusion; confusion is a condition; conditions need healing, NOT hormones; conditions need treatment NOT encouragement. It would not be called deception if one knew they were being deceived.
When a male begins identifying as female that male is no longer mentally stable and there is a reason for this type of behavior and it must be discovered & dealt with. To enter into the "transgender" world one must undergo, and continue in, extensive mental health counseling; that fact alone says that the individual is not mentally stable.
The suicide rate amongst transgenders increases with the hormone treatment and even more so with the procedures and especially the surgery. We cannot change the meaning of words just because a small population of mentally unstable individuals "think/feel" they want to be what they are not.
There are many people being set free from transgenderism and, in fact, there is a whole movement of ex-trans (detransitioners) that are speaking out and exposing the darkness of the lgbTQia+ trans-queer-gender movement. You will not hear much about these men and women, as the powers that be do not want their stories told.
I have had contact with many men who at one time identified as female and have been set free from those deceptive lies and now live healthy, productive lives as the men they were created to be. And the same for many women I know who once identified as male.
I once stated, and sincerely believed (at the time), that I “felt like a woman.” That statement was absurd because having never been a woman, I could not possibly know what a woman feels like.
I Belong Amen Ministries is an outreach ministry that has one goal.... to bring HIS Truth, in Love, to a lost and dying world. Exposing the darkness of the lgbTQia+ movement and the devastating confusion that comes with it, while also revealing what the difference is between the lgbTQia+ movement and those who are, were or will be victimized by this movement! Letting Truth be known in a world where even the saved have been misled.
Truth can be, and often is, offensive to those who do not live in it, however, "making nice" or "stroking your ego" is not my goal, nor is it my responsibility. I do not want to be your friend. My only goal is to be your brother, and I will befriend you with the goal of becoming your brother.
Our One, True, Living GOD, has worked signs and wonders in and through my life more than I could've ever imagined possible. For me it all began with my father committing suicide, being molested as a child, opening doors to the occult by way of witchcraft books and symbols and an existence that had no purpose, no dreams, no goals.... only desires and lusts.
I feared being Same-Sex Attracted because of the guilt, shame and condemnation that heavily weighs down on that lifestyle. I recognized that stigma even as a child. I chose to dissociate from who/what I was in hopes of escaping the shame, guilt and condemnation from culture, society and the church that was targeted onto Same-Sex Attracted individuals.
Suicide. Molestation. A life doomed & littered with drugs, alcohol, prostitution... even murder. It was a prison guard that reached me, with Truth, in Love. I was confused; then I was saved; but now I see with clarity like never before.
30+ years of darkness and death, I now live in Light and Life. GOD pursued me. GOD chose me, for such a time as this. GOD fed my hungry heart with Truth. GOD Loves us all, sinner and saint alike. However, HIS Love doesn't get us into The Kingdom of Heaven... HIS Mercy does that! We do not have to obtain HIS Love to get into The Kingdom, we must obtain HIS Mercy.
And they [the Church] overcame him [the enemy] by the Blood of The LAMB, and by the Word of their Testimony; and they Loved not their lives even when faced with death. ~ Revelation 12:11
After living for 30+ years in darkness (transgenderism, prostitution, sexual brokenness, drug-addiction, alcohol addiction, deceit, trauma and tragedy) there is nothing more Joyful than having The Almighty GOD, stop you in your tracks and give you exactly what you've been asking for and seeking your entire life!!
I really was lost & broken, hurting & destructive, confused & deceived. HE rescued me! HE gave me clarity and focus, as well as purpose. Then my vision was blurred and I became misled... by the misleading of others, false doctrine, words out of context and thoughts & feelings. I was seriously misled to believe that even my being Same-Sex Attracted was sinful. HE gave me a second touch, and cleared up that fog.
The FATHER has given me clarity that being Same-Sex Attracted is a part of my own innate individual design, and HE allowed it. HE gave me Courage & Strength to embrace my design and I am so very grateful and honored.
I am a man of GOD that happens to be same-sex attracted. I have seen this very clearly regardless of how many years I have tried to deny this part of my design. I have attempted to come up with the many reasons that same-sex attraction doesn't exist. I was hoping that if I denied it long enough that it would go away. It didn't, and it won't, because this is who and what I am.
Christian By CHOICE. Gay By DESIGN.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore, if anyone is in The CHRIST, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come."
I have surrendered. I am in The CHRIST. Old things have passed away.
All of my confusion and deceit, as well as thoughts & emotions, have truly passed away. Many things from my past remain, but why? Because they are a part of my make-up, or design, not of my old fallen nature.
As much as I have said that some things are a part of my old sinful nature in the past, and maybe I even wanted that to be true because I believed what I was told about Scripture, it just isn't so. Same-sex attraction happens to be one of those things that are a part of my make-up, my design, and not a lust of the flesh.
This may be a shock to many, and I know it is going to be a real divider. There is a huge difference between "denying self" and denying our design. I refuse to deny my design any longer. And The FATHER in heaven doesn't want me to either!
The question is, are you going to walk away or are you going to remain with an open mind to understand what The FATHER has, and intends, for each of us as individuals? This one topic has given many only one choice to make, choose either the church or your design. I am not forced to decide when it comes to something that is not sinful, but of my design. Nobody should be forced to make the choice between who and what they are or the church. I choose GOD Almighty over the misled church by the way.
The difference between the lgbt movement and those who have been used & manipulated by this movement? The movement itself is not individuals or people, the movement itself is a dark political mass of wickedness and evil that is using, confusing, abusing & bamboozling individuals to believe the deceptions and lies over Truth and Design!
The lgbTQia+ trans-queer rainbow gender ideology movement is not a "cause", it is a prideful & spiteful ignorance that is damaging, traumatizing and raping the minds of individuals that are weak, weary, worn out, confused, broken, hurting, deceived, emotionally unstable and just seeking some affirmation and Love.
The bright and colorful, shiny and 'happy-go-lucky', rainbow movement has truly done some serious damage to individuals, especially the youth! The youth are being indoctrinated and tricked by way of their emotional fragileness.
It is time we started mending those wounds by establishing intimate and loving relationships that introduce these individuals to The One, True Living GOD that can and will heal their wounds, while HE reveals to them exactly what their "design" is and that they can be Same-Sex Attracted and even in a Same-Sex Relationship while still walking in The Way, HIS Way, The Only Way!.
Come On Church!! It's Time!! Let's get this right so we can stop with the division and the ultimatums on things we don't truly understand if we have not walked in those things. AMen!
