Hi again, Rob,
Just a quick response until later as I have company until Tuesday (unless I am up in the night).
Julian’s genetic code that results in confusing sexual identity is not his fault and just “is” as you said. I believe you are right, his response to his situation is between him and God. Practically speaking I would say that it seems better to live out the sex that is the most obvious but that is only opinion and I know people’s feelings about their sexual identity are a reflection of a lot of things. I do believe that the scriptures are consistent in their condemnation of homosexual activity. I do not believe it is a specially awful sin. All sin separates us from God. As far as trans-sexual identity and altering parts goes I don’t know the answer in his case. That is why I focused on our relationship to God as persons primarily. That is clear. In regards to those who chose to change their sex who do not have ambiguous genes I do not think it is something that is necessarily approved by God just because the person feels different. All the transsexual people I know were abused sexually as children… ALL of them. The identity change choice is the way they deal with it. Only God can change a person’s heart and heal the awful pain from abuse. Just a few thoughts for now.
