In my time of dying

The issue whether crossdressing is a sin or not has been argued by two friends of mine, at least. The first said it is not a sin, because it doesn’t harm anyone beside human when they are dead will be judged for what they do for others. The other said that crossdressing is a sin according to a verse in the old testament of the bible that says “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this”.

But, didn’t some verses in the Old Testament have been overhauled by Jesus ? Like in Matthew 5:38-42.Instead of demanding an eye for the replacement of an eye, He teaches us to give our another cheek when we had been slapped on the right cheek.

Isn’t crossdressing issue almost similar to food that sacrificed to idols issue in 1 Corinthians 8 ? Some say we can eat it, but some say we can not eat it.

Then the first said that my God isn’t going to judge me on my sexuality or my gender dysphoria. I believe He is going to judge me on how I conduct my life, how I treat others, how I help when I should, on the acts of goodness or kindness done unknown to others.

What he said is almost similar to this song below “I’ve only been this young once. I never thought I’d do anybody no wrong. No, not once. Oh, I did somebody some good.” A very popular song originally done by Blind Willie Johnson (originally titled “Jesus Make Up My Dying Bed”,1928). But rearranged by Led Zeppelin with title “In My Time Of Dying”. It’s about someone who is dying. Listen to the lamentation of the singer Robert Plant.

I don’t mean to interrupt your dialog. Just an intermezzo while you’re doing your dialogue. Happy holidays to you. Peace on earth good will to men.

Maybe if I were dying I do the same thing as the singer did, lamenting,  begging and  shouting His name. Will He open the gate for me ? What I am afraid of is that He will say ” Get away from Me ! I don’t know you”. ( Matthew 7:23 )
