He knows better than you (you meaning all of us Christians), that's why WE need to be led by the Spirit, instead of CHECKED BY the Spirit.

This isn't really complicated here....

Default So why is cross dressing a sin?

There are no set rules in the bible for who should wear what. It is set by society. So what! Does this same guy think that women shouldn't wear pants? It is an OPINION. That's all. Why do Christians force their OPINIONS on others?

So Fundie, you have been to all nations and have not only made disciples there but have also baptized people? This is what the scripture says for you to do, yes?

Farmers plant their seeds in fertile soil that has been prepared to receive it. Some seed may scatter to the other places but we would be wise to look for the soil God has already prepared. What a shame if we are busy spreading seeds among thorns and rocks and missing the fertile soil God has prepared.
Matt 13:3-23; Mk 4:2-20; Lk 8:4-15
Does the person in the video represent fertile soil? I don't know. If God has not prepared his heart then it matters not that the seed was sown in him, it will not produce fruit.

YouTube - Living Waters University: Victor or Victoria?
Wow! It was so peaceful because Victoria had much patience.

Thar was the first thing that struck me in this vid. The cross-dresser might make you uncomfortable...but that's not a sin. Trying to "save" Victoria seems a little presumptuous to me. He/she seemed pretty level headed and secure in his/her own beliefs. Respectful and intelligent, too.
I don't see any reason for God (or anyone else) to judge this person poorly.

Well, I wouldn`t say unloving.

But as far as being a fundamentilist church follower... I think you said it best.

Fundy...isn't "the gospel" the death burial and resurection of Jesus? I didn't hear them telling this person about that....only that he was a sinner cause he didn't dress "just right."

Seeing then reading the posts on this person I would say with great but sad admiration for what I believe he subjected himself though was a complete waste. His/her thoughts were conceived by himself then actual doing to unlock the feminine side in him that he/she probably feels good about is not something the Lord would see as a just and God fearing person would engage ourselves.

We can love his/her spirit but not the changes he had someone perform. I was taught then began believing that the body is not ours to do what we want. It is our eyes and our minds that bring us to do abnormal things some do to a body they were born into. If the body is deformed then some human gave us the disease to deform us.

I have not changed however I am sure some would think I could use some plastic surgery......

Thanks and God Bless our Veterans and Troops
