Welp, ain't no sin better than the next sin🤷. Ain't nobody perfect and we don't live in a perfect world. Try being more realistic rather than trying to be perfect. We will be here talking about sins all day if that was the case.
Dear lady, lifestyle of sinning ongoing is more serious. It is one thing to be tempted and not give in to it. It is another thing to be tempted and always give in to it. I do not know if cross dressing is a sin or a disease of the mind. But, living the gay lifestyle puts one out of Heaven before one even is judged by God. It is not our place to judge non-believers as Paul says. But, it is our place to warn people that they are following an unwise path. as the old story goes, if you saw your child doing something dangerous like setting themselves on fire, you would stop them.

Hebrews 10:26 ESV
For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

James 4:17 ESV
So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

1 John 3:4-11 ESV / 225 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful
Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. ...


Romans 6:1-8:39 ESV
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?

1 John 5:18 ESV
We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.

2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

1 Corinthians 6:9 ESV
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,


1 Corinthians 5:12, NASB: "For what business of mine is it to judge outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church?"

I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to post a like emoji on Any of your comments because I disagree with everything you said dear. I stand firm on my beliefs, and my beliefs are to wear what makes you happy. Besides, I'm pretty sure you do sinful things, am I correct? We human, not perfect
I John 1:8-10 applies to giving in to temptation from time to time, not continuous sinning.

Wait a minute you are now talking about sins which as far as you are concerned you don't see anything wrong with cross dressing therefore do not see it as a sin or anything that's unhealthy or inappropriate...so how are you now making reference that I sin myself "too"...So by even saying "that" you are saying that there's some form of hypocrisy going on my part to be saying cross dressing is inappropriate ect when I myself do inappropriate things..
🤣🤣🤣...this is crazy..

The actual OP said himself that he wants out of crossdressing and is struggling.Why you think this is the case?
Coz he is Gods child and can discern a degree of inappropriateness in it all..🤷‍♀️
She was judging you friend.

Bless your heart hun..I was trying to have an intelligent debate with you, but you made it out of a joke. To make a long story short. A sin is a sin. Rather cross dressing or whatever it is you do that's inappropriate in Gods eyes. Therefore, God can make that judgement, not man. God bless you and have a bless day
What is the difference between abomination and a sin?

I haven't made it into a joke at all..I just responded according to your previous comments..However there comes a point when reasoning a matter becomes silly because sin is seen as not sin in your eyes and no matter what moral truths I expound upon you see no value or relevance of it even though it's biblical in source..
Even the OP posted on here in the 1st place because he wanted to stop cross dressing yet has been struggling and was here to ask for help/advice of how to be free.
Your comment was just to say keep cross dressing if it make him happy which totally defeats the purpose of why this precious fellow was here in the 1st place.

Pretty straightforward really..
Anyway I wish you have a good day ahead
I think the fact that OP wife disproves is reason enough to stop doing it. I was raised a "christian" nudist in a cult (LDS fundamentalist) known as the Sextons. We do not go to nudist camps. But, we agreed that I can have my private fenced in area to sunbathe. Sometimes, she does join me. Wearing a Bikini to a nudist camp is a sin because it tempts others to lust. Most people in nudist camps are way out of shape.

Ps no God doesn't love him any less in that sense but God wants him to be free from it for sure and its because this man is a Christian that he can discernment an inappropriateness about it all and wante to be free..This man is in the worlds but is noted the world...God wants him free and his sexual/masculine identity restored..
If I did not say it, we are praying for him to walk in the Holy Sprit.

@TheLearner ...
The lady has been banned...
Thank You, I just noticed that too.

Hebrews 13:4
Easy-to-Read Version
4 Marriage should be honored by everyone. And every marriage should be kept pure between husband and wife.

Nudism outside of the two becoming one flesh is wrong, that is why I no longer at my wife's request not go to nudist camps.

Hey Ron. Welcome.

The first thing to understand is the world, your flesh, and the devil are never going to stop tempting and assaulting you.
So these things are almost never accomplished with a one and done. Meaning "OK! I've defeated that temptation! I'm NEVER going to have to deal with that again."

This will make the Christian highly discouraged when they stumble AGAIN into the same sin.

But take heart! The second thing to understand is that Jesus has overcome ALL three! The World, the Flesh, and the Devil.

So if you are born again, YOU can overcome all three through Him. But again, this is not a one and done. You have to DAILY pick up your cross. Meaning crucify your flesh. You still inhabit it! Keep telling it that it is DEAD!

Daily Scripture reading.
Daily fellowship.
Daily prayer.
Daily taking every thought captive and not let the sin percolate in your mind.

The Israelites had to gather the manna DAILY. They couldn't do extra Bible reading, prayer, etc.... for the NEXT day. IT WOULD SPOIL!

This is a helpful video. It's mostly about porn, but the principals can be applied to all addictive sins.

Be Blessed!

Thank you for your wisdom PennEd, please continue praying for me. Thank you. I am saved and do read the word almost daily and sometimes twice a day. I know the spiritual world is real and all Christians need to know that the war is bigger now than ever. I’ve never experienced the temptations that have happened to me in the past few years but I KNOW that Jesus is my savior and he will cure me and everyone who calls on his name! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and THANK YOU JESUS FOR LIVING FOR ME!

Our communication with the Father in Jesus name should start like a phone call first thing when we arise and then we don't "hang up" all day. "Pray without ceasing".

He is already showing you the way, no one is guided by Him to sin, that is always a temptation from the adversary, giving in to it is a choice we should not make.

I’m so sorry this has caused such a mess, but on the other hand the truth needed to come out. I KNOW that cross dressing is an abomination to God and it’s only a temptation that the devil uses to keep me from my spiritual gifts that God has given me by the grace of Jesus! Thanks to all of my brothers and sisters in Christ for the prayers and I pray that you will continue praying for me. I pray that no Christian will ever accept an LGBTQ whatever lifestyle because the Bible clearly condemns that which again I know and am praying for healing from any type of that kind of thing. It’s time that we all stand up for Jesus and get this Jezebel evil spirit out of our nation, churches and homes. All have sinned and fall short of God’s glory but we don’t have to accept the sin and temptation into our lives. DEAR GOD HELP US ALL! Prayer is our most powerful tool and we should use it to help out each other in Jesus name. Amen

I see you disagreed with my post #72, that may be a help that you did so.
I posted the truth of scripture and you disagreed, when we do so we open a chink in our armor and the devil exploits the chink in the armor.
Each item you discard that is tied to the sin free you up a little more, like in Isaiah 28, "here a little, there a little".
