A man dressed in full woman regalia walked out of the door I was holding open for him. He was wearing a blonde wig, make-up and clothes like a woman. Well, since Halloween was over, I assumed I was seeing a transvestite.
I walked up to the counter and as I did, I said a low-key "wow" under my breath. The clerk who waited on me asked me if I was surprised and I knew he had heard me. I told him I was disheartened more than anything. He asked why. I said that Satan had made a mockery out of a man who God had created in His image.
It saddened me to see it. I hope it really was some kind of costume or something. It hurts my heart to think of someone being so confused and lost. I believe people in that condition are shouting their pain out to other people's eyes. And for anyone out there who automatically thinks I am a "hater," you need to know that there was not a smidgen of hate in my heart for that man--only sorrow.
Sorrow, because God loves and has a plan for him but he's also a person Satan hates and has a plan for. And it's sad to see someone give in so totally to the very one who is their enemy. He is the real enemy--this Satan who plants discord in the heart of souls--this "true hater" who uses abuse and/or confusion to lead people to the pit designed for him. That's who the real hater is--Satan. He hates that man. He wants to do everything he can to get him as far away from being what God created him to be as he can and then he wants to destroy him.
The Bible says that Satan is out to steal, kill and destroy. Well, if that man truly was a transvestite, Satan has stolen his manhood and is destroying the future God planned for him and when he finishes destroying any true sense of self-worth as a man, he will do everything he can to kill him so he can take another one of God's creations to hell with him.
Then you know what will happen? People who had no help to give him while they affirmed his "right" to be whatever he wanted, will be the first ones to blame others for the man's death. They will accuse society of not accepting him. They will accuse Christians of hating him. And then they will go on their merry, self-vindicated way as though their tolerance did not encourage a poor, sad, mixed-up individual that it was okay to dress up like the other sex and not even be who their DNA tells them plainly they are.
These "tolerant" people have shook hands with the devil in his plot to destroy mankind. They have helped to destroy a human being by their frivolous disregard. To me, that's the mark of a true "hater."
And if I ever get the chance to hold the door open for this man again, I will gladly do it. And I will pray that real Love, the kind that comes from Jesus will free him from the bondage that has crippled his manhood. Because then and only then, will he know what true freedom is and it won't have anything to do with dressing up his physical body to appear as a woman. It will have to do with allowing a real man, the Son of God, into his heart.
