Pastor Jeffress: How Christians Should TREAT Transgender People

There seems to be no bigger debate in our nation at the moment than one of whether a guy should be able to use a women's restroom if he "self-identifies" as a female.

For Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, the answer is simple: "It's not that confusing. In Matthew 19:4, God's Words are applicable. The Bible says 'God made them from the beginning male and female.' Not male, female and question mark. God has determined how many sexes there are — there are two, not three."

But how should Christians treat transgender people?

Jeffress answered that question when addressing Target's open bathroom policy during his sermon last Sunday.

He said, "Gender identity confusion is an emotional disorder, that should be treated professionally and compassionately. Gender identity confusion should not be exploited by social activists like those in the Obama administration who want to deny the God-given distinction between the sexes. This is a rebellion against God's plan. That's what we have going on here, and it's important for us to say that."

His words were met in his congregation with a standing ovation.

Jeffress also addressed how people who are speaking the truth of God's Word on this issue are being labeled as hateful, saying, "Don't anyone confuse this. This is not hatred. Christians should never ridicule or show hatred for those experiencing gender confusion. They should not do that at all. We ought to treat them lovingly."

He concluded with these powerful words: "And the most loving thing we can do for somebody who's suffering from gender confusion is to assure them that their gender is not a mistake. It's a part of a loving, perfect plan of God for their lives. That's the message of the Bible. It's really clear when you use God's Word. God's Word clears up a lot of confusion."

Do you agree with what he's saying here?
