Teen's suicide shows tragic folly of "transgender" delusion
On Sunday, December 28th, a mentally ill Ohio teenager committed suicide by stepping in front of a semi-trailer on an interstate, selfishly forcing the driver to run him down. The driver, who was minding his own business, will now have to live with this horror the rest of his life. How do I know the kid was mentally ill? I know, because 17-year-old Joshua Alcorn believed he was a girl trapped in a boy's body and had apparently labored under this tragic, "transgender" delusion since he was a little boy. In his suicide note, he blamed his Christian parents for not supporting and encouraging him in his fantasy. Instead, they did the best they knew how in getting him psychiatric help and telling him the truth that he could never be a girl.
According to one study from 2010, over forty percent of "transgender" people have attempted suicide. Proponents of "transgenderism" explain this high figure by mistakenly blaming society's disapproval for "causing" these people to attempt suicide. That's not it. Anyone in open rebellion against God's design for human sexuality will suffer for it, and suicidal tendencies are just one of the many ill effects.
"Transgenderism" is a deeply disturbing mental and spiritual sickness. Any person who believes he is the opposite sex has serious problems, and society's rightful disapproval is the least of them. Not everyone will like to hear this, but demon possession certainly plays a part in homosexuality and "transgenderism." In the Bible, we see that demon possession was commonly understood to be prevalent, but the knowledge of it has been largely lost or buried today, as if our "modern" culture is too "smart" to give credence to the reality of spiritual forces at work in people today, just as they were then.
We often read that some who are homosexual or "transgender" have believed this since they were children. Demons do not spare children any more than adults. [...] How many of these cases today are demon-related? I don't know, but it is certainly a factor.
