I was a bit hesitant to write this post.
I wanted to tackle the issue head-on but not seem insensitive to others.
But I realize that I’m at that age where political correctness is not my thing and that truth is truth. Especially when it comes to proclaiming the Gospel.
Which brings me to the article that I will link to at the bottom of my post.
Essentially, the author is claiming that Jesus was the first transgender man.
Yep, that’s right. Jesus was the first transgender man.
I’ll stop while you catch your breath.
What concerns me the most is that the author of the article claims to be a Christian. Here is her explanation as to why she believes Jesus was transgender:
“The worst offenders are the Christian’s who claim to take the Bible literally. Of course they don’t actually do that; they impose their own filters on stories and phrases to fit their particular ideology. If they really did as they claim to do, they would quickly see that Jesus must be, by their own exegetical rules, the first transgender male.”
She goes on to say that Eve was the first human clone because she was created from one of Adam’s ribs. Adam (being male) has an X and a Y chromosome. She believes that, since Eve would also have this same chromosomal pairing, God would need to change her into a woman. At this point, she is making assumptions. This is, of course, a false assumption as Scripture points out:
“With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10:27)
With God, all things are possible. God knows all. He created man; He created him with all the parts and pieces he would need. He knew what they would need physically, mentally, and genetically. Don’t you think He would know that Eve would need to have two X chromosomes?
The author then goes on to say the following about the birth of Jesus:
“Then along comes Jesus and the whole pattern is both repeated and reversed. The first couple’s refusal to cooperate is turned around by Mary’s yes, and the second act of cloning occurs. The Holy Spirit comes upon the second Eve, and the child takes flesh from her and is born. Born of her flesh. Born with XX chromosome pairing. Born genetically female, and yet trans-formed into man.”
An amateur understanding of basic biology will tell you that only one chromosome comes from the mother (an X) and the other comes from the father (a Y). In this case, the Y came from the Father, through the Holy Spirit. And as an added bonus, the Y came from the Father because if it had come from a human male, then Jesus would have the same sin nature that has been passed down from Adam since the fall in the Garden of Eden.
I think what concerns me most is that new Christians will read this and ponder its possibilities and take it as truth rather than the deception that it actually is. Authors such as this can lead many Christians astray unless we are properly armed and in the Word, studying and learning.
Pray up and be ready because there are more people like this author out there.
