God knows his heart. He'll either do God's will or he won't (Jn 7:17).
Yes, and others are supposed to tell him what God says in His Word about this so he is informed of the consequences of his decision to knowingly live in rebellion against the Lord.

One needs to know the truth... rather than being encouraged to live in sin and it's all good with God which is a lie cause, it's not all good with God be live in sin!

As everyone has done here, yes (Deut 22:5, Mt 19:4). I don't think he--and he is a he--disagrees. He--and he is a he--lives in disgust with himself. If he's truly repentant, then God will clean him up (Heb. 9:14).

A Christian would not encourage him to live in sin. He'd get that advice from God haters.

...and it's all good with God which is a lie cause, it's not all good with God be live in sin!
Jesus came to set the sinner free (Jn 1:29). He didn't come because he had nothing better to do.

There are tons of commandments in the OT given to the Jews that nobody is expected to follow now. The NT did away with the OT law, and if it isn't a commandment given in the NT, it doesn't apply under the New Covenant in my opinion. You just have to think about the consequences of your actions and make a moral decision. I see no reason why you shouldn't dress however you want to. Using the OT to decide is silly because you wouldn't forbid anyone from eating shellfish or wearing mixed fabrics, or expect anyone to make an animal sacrifice to appease their sins. Plus, the idea of clothing being specific to men or women is a completely human construct and it changes all the time. High heels used to be for men. The color blue used to be a girl color. Clothes are just clothes. Do what makes you comfortable and as long as you aren't hurting anyone, why would it be a problem? We can't just pick and choose bits of the OT to dictate what is allowed now because we think it's weird or icky. That's not biblical.

The real question is: "Are we able to pervert God's blessings and still stand before Him unharmed?" Take a moment in the stillness of His light and your spirit will answer that for the sake of the abundant life felt in the fullness of Jesus Christ. Then ask yourself, "Am I aware of what gives me life and joy? Is it His joy that gives me strength, or is it my (familiar old) desires that drive my joy home for me?" Let yourself get to know the Lord, and He will show Himself as yourself better served in all things. Be patient with God for He is patient with you. He is the wisdom we must attach ourselves to.

Crossdressing - is it a perversion of a good thing? Or is crossdressing simply a godly thing best serving you? The Spirit of God will let you know. And He has an answer for you.
