Why Gender Tree
In our culture we tend to think in terms of a dichotomy when we think of gender, Female or Male.
I was in a really boring meeting one day and realized I am as guilty of this sort of thinking, even thought I am “gender variant”. I realized we need a new model that was three dimensional, and visualized a tree with its almost infinite branchings.
The body of Christ is divided all too often, because of our natural tendency to be uncomfortable with people who are different. This writing, and the pages that follow, are an attempt to both educate and challenge Christian believers to “Test everything, [and] hold on to the good” in obedience to 1 Thess. 5: 21 (NIV). To lay aside their learned reaction to such individuals, and take an honest look at the scriptures, and their own hearts.
I have dealt with guilt and shame and fear most of my life. My goal is to help those that are gender variant to understand that what you are, is not inherently wrong or sinful!
the grace of God you are what you are.
those whose lives are spent searching for truth are well aware that the glimpses
they catch of it are necessarily fleeting, glittering for an instant only to
make way for new and still more dazzling insights. The scholar's work, in marked
contrast to that of the artist, is inevitably provisional. He knows this and
rejoices in it, for the rapid obsolescence of his books is the very proof of the
progress of scholarship."
