Am I Going to Hell Because of My Sex Change?



I had a sex change many years ago. Now I love Jesus and am willing to stay single the rest of my life to stay pure. Something keeps telling me that because I changed my sex and cannot change it back I am going to hell. Is this true?


Absolutely not! You cannot undo what has been done physically and God does not hold that against you. The “something” that keeps telling you this must certainly be the enemy. The devil knows that discouragement is one of his greatest tools to getting believers to give up.

If you have been truly converted to Christ, and it certainly sounds like you have, then you have a new spiritual body. Your physical body is a secondary matter.

Having said that, I must address the way you live your life. You were a man and had your sexual organs physically altered to resemble those of a woman. I assume you have also been on hormone therapy, which diminishes masculinity and enhances femininity. This leaves you very vulnerable to the enemy—who led you down this path in the first place.

Should you live the rest of your life as a man or as a woman? That is something you must learn on your knees before God. He loves you and is not angry over what has happened in your past. “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5) The Lord knows just what you should do in this difficult situation. Go to Him in the confidence that He wants to help you.
