I’m including this short section here, because you need to understand the perspective I am working from. Everything you see on this blog – 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.
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 faith background, (though I strive for unity among Christian denominations). Quoting from my tradition, 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 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.
Accept Jesus as your Savior and Lord and you can have a right and good and loving relationship with God. It’s totally free, and yet totally priceless. Jesus is the supreme treasure of my life.
I desire to help people resist crossdressing, and try to understand themselves better in light of their crossdressing. 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 please please talk to me about it. There is NOTHING I would rather do in this life than to talk to you more about my Lord, and the good news of salvation that we can have in Jesus.
