On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank tells the tragic story of Nathan Verhelst. Nathan was born as a girl in Belgium, and at some point, she decided that she would be better off if she were a he. After hormone therapy and several surgeries to transition from female to male; Nathan tells of looking into a mirror and being disgusted. A year following the last sex-change procedure, Verhelst was euthanized. And so, the Belgian health service tried to turn a woman into a man, had failed, and then killed her. The trans train has roared into town in record time—far faster than the “L,” the “G,” and the “B” in LGBTQ+. Time Magazine referred to the trans movement as the next civil rights movement. If you so much as suggest that a trans woman is not the same as a biological woman, your career is in danger. It is incumbent on us to stand for truth no matter the cost—but to do that we must be informed, and we need the love and care that was demonstrated by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- We find a lot of quotations from the Septuagint in the New Testament, so why do we not use it today?
- The Bible teaches that we’re saved by grace through faith, not of works; but Romans chapter 8 seems to imply our works get us into heaven. Can you explain this to me?
- Revelation 20:3 talks about Satan being bound for a thousand years and loosed for a short period of time. What is that short period of time?
