Thank you, Dr Brown, for your wisdom. I have dealt with severe mental anguish since childhood. My issues are not sexual in nature, but my heart cries for these people who feel they don't fit in to their gender. How awful a feeling! I certainly don't know the answer to this dilemma. I don't think the surgery, in most cases, actually resolves the issue. As far as it being a sin, that's God's arena, not mine. If such surgery is done, I believe the Father is waiting, anxiously, to forgive. But, the sex change is done and it is between God and the person to determine the next step. I believe in showing love, kindness and mercy to these tortured souls.

Very good and well written article. I guess I'd have to ask under what circumstances would it be ok to have surgery and why not just remain as is because how would one really know how/what God created them to be? Also, your article begs one question that wasn't addressed. If a person does have surgery to change their sex then how would they repent from that? It seems to me that when one goes to the extent to actually surgically change that which God has created it would be the height of Romans 1 and they'd be in very real danger at that point of being turned over to a reprobate mind for having worshiped the Creature vice the Creator to the utmost. I'm not dogmatic about it but I seem to think the same occurs with SSM. Of course Scripture doesn't specifically address this but I'd sure be interested to hear your thoughts. Either way one thing is for certain. These are difficult issues that the Church must start addressing.
