Excerpt From The Answer
“We have vilified what it means to be made in the image of God. We have forgotten that Genesis 1:27 says that we are made in the image of God as male and female. And we have, instead decided that the image of God means whatever feeling I want to interpose upon that and somehow have God bless it. So there is no such thing as being a trans Christian or a gay Christian in the image of God. Trans and gay come from the world, the flesh, and the devil. They are sins to be repented of, to be rejected. They are not examples of my image of God. And the evangelical church is off course because many of its leaders have betrayed us.
They need to repent. I don’t know what else to say. I mean, we are Christians. We’re not gonna hold you to it, but if you sin, you repent and you receive God’s forgiveness. But there is no such thing as a gay person. I’m sorry, you don’t have a gay daughter. There is no such thing as a trans person. You may have a deluded daughter deeply under a seductive evil.
You may have a daughter who has been taken captive by sin, but gay and trans are not categories of personhood. They’re categories of sin. And the way that they became categories of personhood is that the Holy Evangelical Church bought the feminist distinction, which is a false distinction by the way, between sexual anatomy and gender. These category mistakes after they go on for a while, they affect the way we think.”
