Bruce and the Bible

Home > Pastor's Page > Bruce and the Bible

A little boy and a little girl had just been introduced.  Soon they were trying to decide on which game to play.  The boy said, “I have an idea, how about baseball?”  The girl replied, “Oh no, I wouldn’t want to do that, baseball is a boy’s game.  It’s not feminine to run around on a dusty vacant lot.  No, I wouldn’t want to play baseball.”  So the boy suggested,”Okay then, let’s play football.”  But the girl responded, “Oh no, I wouldn’t want to play football, that’s even less feminine than baseball.  I might fall and get dirty.  No, that’s not a girl’s game, either.”  He suggested, “All right, I’ve got an idea.  I’ll race you to the corner.”  She countered, “No, girls play quiet games; we don’t run and get all sweaty.  Girls should never race with boys.”  The little guy scratched his head, trying to think of what she might want to do, and finally blurted out, “I know, let’s play house.”   The little girl immediately agreed voicing, “Good.  I’ll be the daddy!”
Olympic track and field star, Bruce Jenner, was named Male Athlete of the Year for his decathlon gold medal winning performance in the 1976 Olympics.  The 6′ 2″ muscular champion was the poster boy for American masculinity, appearing on the coveted front of the  Wheaties cereal box three different times.  He was even considered for the starring role as Clark Kent in the 1978  Superman movie.  It was often said that if you looked up the definition of a “real man” in the dictionary, you’d find his photograph next to the meaning.  But this spring, Jenner dropped the proverbial bomb when he announced to a huge television audience that he is on a transgender journey, going from being a man to becoming a woman.  The now 65-year-old said he possesses the “soul of a woman” and in another month would conclude years of plastic surgery and hormonal injections.  And sure enough, in June the male gold-medal winner stepped out before the cameras, wearing a female gown and now going by the name of Caitlyn.  In turn, the LBGT (Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Gay, Transgender) community is promoting Jenner  as a real hero for transvestites everywhere. All of which begs the question, what does the Bible say about this?

● God’s Distinct- Gender Creation

Genesis 1:27 – So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

● God’s Distinct-Gender Command

Deuteronomy 22:5 – The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.

● God’s Distinct-Gender Conversion

I Corinthians 6:9,10,11 – Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind … and such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

The bottom line?  Transvestites have the highest suicide rate in the world (even after the injections and surgeries).  But God can save them, be they Bruce or Caitlyn.
