Psalm 119:32 – I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.
Many people come to this website who are not Christians and yet they find themselves stuck in a crossdressing addiction or in the despair of gender dysphoria. Others come who would call themselves Christians, but are just now starting to be interested in their relationship with God as they try to get his help to overcome their addiction. This page is for all of these types of people. I want people to be able understand my Christian perspective. Everything you see on this website – every blog post, every comment I make, things I choose or don’t choose to blog about – all of these things are colored by my overall outlook on the meaning of life which I describe below. This post is just a very brief introduction to the Christian faith, about what I believe and how I live.
I believe that the meaning of life, the reason that we exist as humans, is to worship God and enjoy him forever. I am from an evangelical protestant faith background, though I strive for unity among Christian denominations. Here is quote from the Westminster Shorter Catechism –
Q. 1. What is the chief end of man?
A. Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever. (Westminster Catechism)
Life is about having a relationship with the God who created us, about giving him the worship that he deserves and finding extreme pleasure and enjoyment in him. Without a relationship with God, it really doesn’t matter whether you crossdress or not. Everything in life becomes pretty meaningless. But if we do know God’s love, and love him, and have a relationship with him, then everything we do in life becomes meaningful.
Unfortunately, we as humans have messed up our relationship with God through our sin and disobedience. Only through Jesus Christ can that relationship with God be restored. He lived the life we could not live and gives us the rewards that he earned by that life. He gives us his righteousness since our own righteousness is not good enough. And even though Jesus was innocent, he died to take the punishment we deserve for our sin. He conquered death on the cross and allowed us to be saved from our punishment. He is our perfect representative.
Accept Jesus as your Savior and Lord and you can have a loving and right relationship with God. It’s totally free, and yet totally priceless. Jesus is the supreme treasure of my life.
How do we learn about what Jesus did for us? How do we learn about God, this world, and ourselves? How do we learn about how God wants us to live? We learn these things through reading the Bible, the written word of God, inspired by God and written down by people. For a summary of Christian beliefs, you can read the Apostle’s Creed.
In practice, I live my life in obedience to God’s commands, trying the best that I can, and I do this in gratitude for all God has done for me, not to earn anything. I obey because I have been forgiven, I don’t obey in order to be forgiven. I pray daily and read the Bible daily, and I go to church on Sundays to worship God along with other people who know Him. I find community and accountability and love in the local church.
I desire to help people resist crossdressing, and try to understand themselves. I desire people to be healed from their pain and become whole people once again. But whoever we are, whether we crossdress or not, true healing, meaning in life, salvation, hope, grace, and eternal life can only be found in Jesus.
This of course is just an extremely brief summary of what I believe, but hopefully it gives you some food for thought. If you would ever like to talk about the Christian faith or why I believe what I believe, or how you yourself can become a follower of Jesus, please talk to me about it. There is nothing I would rather do than to talk to you about my Lord, and the good news of salvation that we can have in Jesus.
