Jimmy DeYoung and David James: The Church Must Prepare for a Biblical Response to Transgenderism


LEAD STORY Transgenderism has become a global issue Read Jimmy’s report on today’s top story, and how this event relates to Bible prophecy.

On a weekly basis Jimmy DeYoung and Dave James have a conversation on an issue that the body of Christ must have a Biblical basis upon which to discuss the issue. This time the issue is “transgenderism”. With Bibles in hand Jimmy and Dave will discuss transgenderism, an issue that has become a global issue. They will ask how should the Church, and the family deal Biblically with the subject. This is a very important issue that you need to hear about in the up-coming conversation between Jimmy and Dave.


JD: We’re just slowly being conditioned to accept the perversion of human sexuality, would you agree with that?

DJ: I would and I think the fact that we now live in such a global society with instantaneously transfer and some information and ideas around the globe. Literally within seconds Amazon.com has started pulling all books that discuss any sort of conversion therapy or anything that disparages the LGBTQ community. Amazon.com it recently removed their three year old book about transgender issues from its platform because they decided not to sell the books that frame transgender and other sexual identities as mental illnesses.
JD: And since inevitably it is coming what do you think churches and ministries need to be doing to prepare people for what seems to be coming and very quickly?
DJ: Well I think several things can be done. There are preemptive steps and I don’t know how effective they’ll be but we need to start being on the move and being prepared. I think the majority of believers and at least most conservative evangelical churches are personally committed to Biblical values concerning human sexuality. But I also think most may not be equipped to answer challenges by those who are committed to the range of LGBTQ arguments by those who have carefully developed gender identity ideology and language. Are parents equipped to speak about these things with their children especially to effectively counter with Scripture arguments that kids are going to be exposed to. I think churches and Christian schools and parents are going to need to be more proactive in dealing with these things. And I think some of us as we keep on keeping on and reaching the truth we may faced with spending jail time for our convictions and we need to be prepared for that.
JD: David James helping us to understand the global issue of transgenderism.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
David’s report brings to our attention a very controversial issue. An issue that must be dealt with in our world today especially in our churches and our families. The basic source for Godly information has to be the word of God the Bible therefore let’s look at what the apostle Paul’s thoughts were which are found in II Timothy 3:1-3. Paul says that in the last days men will be lovers of their own selves without natural affection and then Paul says from such turn away, that’s verse 5. Paul’s words are describing our day, a day when Jesus could come.
