How should you handle this situation: If a Cross-dressing person attended your church, what would you do?

Churches are built up of the people inside.
Churches are built up of the people inside.

As a Missionary and as a Pastor... I would continue service as usual and preach the same message I had prepared before hand... The only change would be that when we have visitors... regardless of what they are wearing or not wearing... (public nudity is a problem in my area) I would make sure that the service ends with a full explanation of the Salvation message and an opportunity for receiving Christ.

I would like to add that after knowing of the persons personal issues... I would also start praying for the person at various times when the Holy Spirit moved me... remembering peoples faces is often the instigation of prayer for that person... and over time.. prayer changes things.

Mountains can be moved.. with prayer.

      Here is a good saying.. worthy of repeating... Jesus Christ came to save sinners... Of whom I am chief.

      Jesus came to save the sick.. the healthy need not a physician.

      Come as you are is what I am feeling here. Our transgendered, gay and lesbian brothers and sisters deserve love and a peace too, but also a clear understanding of what the Word of God teaches about lifestyles that are not in harmony with the prescribed manner God Established with Adam and Eve.

      You are a good man to not scold, but love and teach. God bless your efforts. We need more who are willing to love like that.

      Thanks Reynold

      I have a couple of other blogs/articles in the works which you may find interesting... Church History and Doctrines are of an interest to me... :-)

      I enjoyed this very much. You have this laid out beautifully and it is easy to understand. Keep up the great HUBS. Up one and Useful. Hey! I'm now your fan! I am working a series of 5 novels Seeds From Heaven that touches on a lot of the things you mention. I'll have one published in 2 months.RJ
