Where is the compassion?
We should care. We should care, GREATLY. As a Christian, when someone is going through a struggle, our first response should be compassion. Pushing them away and closing the door to anyone, especially to someone going through a tough time, is a terrible witness to Christ and makes for a bad evangelism tool. The entire Bible is founded on compassion and it’s our job as Christians to exemplify the teachings of the Bible by being compassionate to others. Paul explains exactly how we should respond to our transgender neighbors in 1 Thessalonians 5:14, "And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all." Paul continues this reminder in Romans, "As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions." (Romans 14:1)
