‘He Redeemed My Life’: Man Who Lived as Woman for Years Now Shares Christ With Transgenders

HeyerLOS ANGELES, Calif. — A California man who obtained a sex change operation in the 1980’s to live as a woman and later reverted back to his biological gender is sharing his story of how God redeemed his life and gave him hope.

Walt Heyer lived as Laura Jensen for eight years and even had a job with the U.S. government while living as a transgender, but says that having a physical operation did nothing to resolve the mental and emotional struggles that he faced.

Heyer told the Daily Mail recently that he believes his problems stem from his childhood, when he was sexually abused by one relative and cross-dressed by another.

“[M]y grandmother, when I was being babysat by her, started dressing me in female clothing. She even made me a purple chiffon evening dress,” he recalled. “And when dad found out what grandma had been doing, and dressing me up like a girl, it did change everything.”

“[My father’s] adopted brother Fred began to sexually molest me,” Heyer said.

His mother’s strong disciplinarian personality was also difficult to cope with as well.

“Mom’s discipline got even more severe,” Heyer explained, “and I would learn much later in life that on one occasion, her discipline was so tough she thought she had almost killed me.”

He said that the insecurity he felt over the circumstances soon led him to believe that he was a girl trapped in a boy’s body, and he began becoming more recluse. Although Heyer went on to marry and have children, at the age of 37, he decided to obtain a sex change operation to become a woman.

He said that he divorced his wife just before the operation because he did not want to put her through the ordeal. However, his children were not happy with how the situation was destroying their family.

“When a father does that, you’re betraying your children, and what came to my mind later on was I saw myself as much more important than my kids,” Heyer explained. “That is probably the most self-centered, narcissistic thing a person can do. It’s just nonsense to place yourself over a couple of kids, who needed someone to be there for them.”

He lived as Laura Jensen for eight years and worked for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. But one day while studying psychology at the University of California, Heyer had an epiphany: He wasn’t a transgender. He was a man with a psychological problem that trying to live as a woman wasn’t going to fix. Heyer also learned that his answer wasn’t within himself; it was in Christ.

So, eight years after obtaining the operation, Heyer reverted back to living as a man, and now says he doesn’t believe that people are born transgender.

“Gender dysphoria is a psychological condition where you are dissatisfied with your gender,” he told the Daily Mail. “Nobody’s ever born a transgender. They’re manufactured as a result of something, a developmental childhood issue that has yet to be determined for many people. In retrospect, I can see that changing genders, quite frankly is just pure foolishness.”

Heyer says that those who struggle with the condition are not receiving proper care, and many medical professionals are too quick to agree to surgery.

“All of them have some level of depression, and we’re not treating them,” he lamented. “We’re just cutting off body parts and giving them a new name and a new gender.”

“[But] biologically, no one can transport to the other gender, it’s not even possible,” Heyer stated. “All they do is pump people full of hormones, put in breast implants and declare that they’ve manufactured a female. It’s biologically impossible to make a man into a woman.”

The now 74-year-old man has since made amends with his children and runs a website to compassionately help others who struggle with gender identity or are expressing regret over having a sex change operation.

“God designed man; He designed women,” he said in a video recorded last year. “God will redeem the lives of people who struggle with gender identity issues just like I did. He redeemed my life, and I’ve been free from it as a result of that.”

    I have said it for years, gender dysphoria is a lie, it is a scheme of the devil to destroy lives; and often, as in this case, it destroys families. Yet in our liberal, secular, practical atheist world these people do not get the emotional and spiritual help they really need, what they get is so-called medical professionals to ONLY encourage their gender confusion, pump them full of drugs and send them into surgery to make them into something they are not. God does not make mistakes, He created men and women and they are what their sexual organs dictate, they need help to accept their gender, not change it and they need God. Yet, even talking about real help to get well and about God is now almost a crime in this nation, it is certainly passionately attacked and the people wanting to help them hated.

    • Michael Castner

      Right.one person out of millions backed up your point of view.

      • Fundisi

        The truth is the truth, it is not about numbers; but, I suspect truth may not be a very high priority with most people.

        • Michael Castner

          The truth is the christian needs to stop sticking their noses in other peoples business.they may or may not even believe in your god,and your condemnation of them becomes irrelevant.do you have any divorced people in your church?thats not something god likes is it?why dont i see postings about divorced people showing up?

          • Fundisi

            Whether you like it or not, we Christians are called to light and salt in the world, to contend for souls by standing for the Truth, which means we are concerned for the everlasting souls of every human being, to contend for them against all that is false. Let us say we Christians are against child sexual abuse, should we stop sticking our noses in other peoples business and remain silent on that issue as well?

            If there were stories on divorce in the news, I assure you this blog and every Christian here would comment and be against divorce.

          • Bingo

            Amen!

          • infowolf1

            at least with divorce and remarriage there is a mimic of the original heterosexual model. And it isn’t just other people’s business and it doesn’t matter if they believe in our God Jesus Christ or not. God has mandated some things and most societies have officially at least recognized them even when they were pagans, even though they got involved with the stuff.

          • Michael Castner

            Sin is sin.

          • infowolf1

            not all sins are equal. If you forget bumper sticker slogan think, and look at Jesus’ words about the judgement and Paul’s listing of how things go downhill and his statement in I Corinthians that to avoid fornication everyone should have their own spouse, addressed to people from a wildly immoral background, obviously there are gradations. Such people as he addressed would have included a plethora of divorced remarried divorced again people. There is the ideal and then there is the lesser of two evils.

          • ddo2013

            so Christians can’t stick their noses into the business of others who are committing sin, but all the non-Christians can force their beliefs and morals or lack of, into the lives of Christians. And don’t dare deny it, everybody sees how the homosexual agenda, the islamic agenda, the politically correct agenda, etc. is pervading America. There’s only one thing I can say to any of your garbage: “Don’t be deceived, God will not be mocked. For whatever a man sows, that will he also reap.” Galatians 6:7

          • Michael Castner

            You cant practice your religion?you dont have to accept homosexuals or atheists.they only get upset when you try to butt in to their rights,or make your beliefs laws,or teach it in schools.keep religion in the churches.

          • ddo2013

            I don’t practice religion nor do I have a religion. Being a born-again, Bible-believing Christian has nothing to do with practicing religion; in fact it has nothing to do with religion at all. Instead, it is a personal relationship with the God who created the universe and who is the One who sets the standards and the Bible says homosexuality is an abomination to Him and against nature.

          • Michael Castner

            It also says you should stone an unruly child to death,and it condones slavery.oh,bye the way,homosexuality does occur in nature.

          • ddo2013

            And that rule to stone an unruly child proved to be a great deterrent as you never read in the Bible about it having to be done. So if you’re going to quote something, then you better know what you’re talking about and be able to back it up and yet you can’t. And, no, though it gives rules concerning slavery, the Bible never condones slavery, but it does have requirements on how slaves were to be treated. Again, you are wrong because you have no understanding of Scripture. Try to teach somebody else who has no clue and who might accept what you say, but I’m not the one.

          • Michael Castner

            You dont know if it has never been done.how abour the loving god sending she bears to maul children for calling someone baldy?did the bible say not to own slaves.or that i. was wrong to own people?no.that is condoning it.

          • ddo2013

            Goes to show how you better not mess with one of God’s chosen prophets, as for the rest of your garbage, as i said you have no clue.

          • Michael Castner

            Thats right.kill the infidel.sound familiar?

          • ddo2013

            if you even had an inkling of what you were talking about I might comment further, but there’s an adage in the Bible of casting pearls before the swine and also an admonition to warn people 2 times and then walk away. Pearls are too valuable to cast before the swine and you’ve been warned at least twice. I have shared truth with you and you cannot accept or understand it. Here’s one last thing for you to read, maybe it will help you, maybe not but I’ll post it anyway. https://www.thebereancall.org/content/july-2003-q-and-a-3

          • Michael Castner

            Im sorry,but that is nothing but more excuse making.people can twist anything to mean anything they want.you say i dont understand but i do.Death to anyone who doesnt believe in me.

            And certain animals eat their own feces. Should we do that? “Homosexual” animals use such homosexual acts as a symbol of domination.

          • CJ

            we agree…no more shutting down bakeries, wedding businesses, etc. Agreed about the divorce situation…it started all of this

          • Corinna Carpenter

            Then stop shoving your sexual deviancy in our faces! I’m not a Christian but I AM sick of this crap. I’m a Jew and I go by what Leviticus says about homosexuality and self-mutilation. I sin but I don’t revel in it and parade it around like a badge of pride. No one cares what you do in the bedroom so just shut up and stop making it our business if you don’t want religious people to voice their feelings!

      Your post reveals the profound depth of your ignorance on the matter.

      • Fundisi

        That is just your opinion. it is not fact. Further, your comments add nothing to the conversation at all, so why waste your time?

        • Bob_Barnes

          nope, not an opinion. You really lack EVERYTHING to have this conversation except the religious blinders.

          • Fundisi

            Nope, not an opinion. You really lack EVERYTHING to have this conversation except the liberal-atheist blinders.

    • Spoob

      You’ve said that gender dysphoria is a lie for years, have you? And what exactly do you know about it? Did you read about it in medical journals, from clinical documents, or do you know all you need to know about it from reading the Bible?

      • Fundisi

        Thanks once again for proving your atheism. If you knew God, if you really knew Him, you would rely of His Word for everything as touching life and eternity. But, for you it is not a resource for any truth at all.

        While I have an extensive background in both clinical and research medicine, I also know that medicine has become almost wholly politically driven and that to a liberal bias, conforming to liberal dogma, that is especially true of the discredited psychiatric profession, which is more like witchcraft that medicine.

        The facts are that these people were born with certain biological organs which define their gender and any so-called gender confusion are influenced by factors in youth, by failed, liberal, even demonically
        influenced nurturing and even sexual abuse, causing them to be swayed into thinking they are something they are not; and, while not stated, they have been born with a susceptibility to false the suggestions forced upon them.

        Further, and what is much, much worse, because of our wholly discredited psychiatric profession and a terribly sick liberal minded culture that demands every perverse desire be normalized and accepted, these people are denied the professional medical care that would help them accept their true gender identity and be emotionally healthy. Your side refuses to accept that these people are ill and need help, your side in a false sense of compassion deny them the help they need to deny this lie of gender identity confusion.

        I do not expect you to agree, you are so bound up with lies and spirits of darkness that you would rather see them in hell than get they help they need, not just emotional help, but spiritual healing as well.

        • Spoob

          You always call me an atheist as though it’s the worst possible insult you could be doling out. I think I’ve made it pretty clear that I’m not, but I have to say, I’d much rather spend time with or have a conversation with, ANY atheist over yourself.

          And if you have any background AT ALL in medicine, then your attitude towards homosexuals as well as transgendered people is shocking and disgusting. You SHOULD know better.

          • Fundisi

            It is not an insult, it means that unless you repent and are born again, you will spend a conscious eternity in hell.

            It is the way of the world today, all scientific inquiry is politically driven and must conform liberal dogma or else. There is no such thing as a transgendered or homosexual person, they are emotionally ill and spiritually dead. They need Christ and His healing.

          • Spoob

            I happen to not believe that, in fact it sounds like the product of a disordered mind. And a conspiracy theory.

          • Fundisi

            You don’t seem to believe in God or Jesus, so why would I expect you to believe anything even close to the Truth?

          • Spoob

            You don’t know what I believe, stop pretending you do.

          • Fundisi

            Words have meaning and your words betray you!

          • Spoob

            Yours betray you as a Christian supremacist.

          • The Last Trump

            I think you mean a SUPREME Christian! And you’re right! Fundisi serves his Lord well and is a great representative of genuine Christianity.

          • Spoob

            He, as you, is a wonderful, shining example of self-righteous, narrow minded arrogance and Christian supremacy.

          • The Last Trump

            Why thank you, Apostate! That you consider me to be of the same cloth as brother Fundisi is high praise! Do, please, continue to point out that our genuine Christianity has NOTHING in common with your anti-Christian drivel. God might be watching. 🙂

          • Spoob

            Yes for genuine Christians you are definitely True Scotsmen.

          • Spoob

            I would really like to know how your Christian Faith as you practice it has done you any favours in your life. You’d almost be better off as an atheist. At least as an atheist you wouldn’t be hateful, bigoted, willfully ignorant, anti-logic, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-Catholic, anti-women, superstitious, paranoid, judgmental, and murderous. Is this the price one pays to be A True Christian?

          • The Last Trump

            Back to that old tactic again? Argument not going so well, start the slandering and the name calling eh? Told you before. Quote me. I’ve got nothing to hide. I gave you scripture. YOU gave me HATE. I sleep just fine at night knowing God will judge me justly and I will get what I deserve, good or bad. But by God one of my “sins” will not be twisting and “interpreting” the Word of God to get people to do what it most assuredly tells them NOT to do. You should be pissing your pants with worry that you just miiiight have twisted it wrong and interpreted it incorrectly (what, with ALL OF THE OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE AND ALL) but you are just too self absorbed or plainly stupid to realize that to fall into the hands of the living God “IS A TERRIBLE THING”! Hebrews 10:31. God help you, you poor fool.

          • Spoob

            You have demonstrated that you have all these absolutely disgusting qualities, not that they were ever there in the first place but that you have DECIDED to ADOPT them, and I think that’s the most shameful thing of all. And why would anyone willfully decide that people deserve death and suffering based on an orientation they don’t choose, why would they shut off the brain they were given to form opinions with, why would they hate entire groups of people?

            I learned long ago that it is futile, trying to argue with a fundamentalist! The name says it all fundamentalist — a simple minded individual. They will never be able to comprehend their ignorance! So you can never win the argument.

          • Spoob

            You are exactly right. Fundamentalists are not open to reason and they are never open to discussion or debate. There are never any shades of gray with a fundamentalist. They think they alone understand the word of God and they do not bend from that understanding. You may as well have a discussion with a wall.

          • Ken

            “I gave you scripture” Scripture is the word of MEN, not GOD! God wrote nothing! Men who believed in GOD wrote scripture. It was neither divine or inspired. It was simply the belief that that particular writer believed, and nothing more. That is the problem with all fundamentalists, whether they be Christians or Muslims. They take the word literally. It was simply never meant to be. Now I know my comment is out of context, as I did not read fully your diatribe. The fact is fundamentalists believe the word as the word of God. That’s their big mistake, and woe to them when and if they ever meet him or her face to face!

          • Spoob

            What we were just discussing applies to this guy, Last Trump – you will not get anywhere. You’ll get lots of self-satisfied sarcasm and name calling, though.

            Ken,
            The Bible is Gods inspired Word. The Bible is clear about that. It has all the answers of life,. It is a love letter, a guide, it has healing, peace, joy and the wonderful Words of Christ who died so that we could live eternally with Him. The Bible refers to God as He and Jesus as His Son. As far as living the homosexual life style, those people will one day hate those who condone what they do, instead of giving them the truth of Gods Word. They will one day be saying “why didn’t you tell me?” If you know anything at all about Gods Word, you will see how God predicts what will happen throughout the existance of the world, you will also see that no one has been able to destroy Gods Word no matter how hard men have tried. No one ever will be able too either. There will always be a remenant to carry on. God is Love. Love the sinner, hate the sin. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Begotten Son that whosever beleiveth on Him should not perish but have ever lasting life.

          • Ken

            Like I probably already said. There is no point in arguing with a “bible banger”. They will never learn to accept fact from fiction. Be they Muslim or Christian, they are all evil.

          “…any so-called gender confusion are influenced by factors in youth, by failed, liberal, even demonically
          influenced nurturing and even sexual abuse, causing them to be swayed into thinking they are something they are not; and, while not stated, they have been born with a susceptibility to false the suggestions forced upon them.”

          My son told me that he is transgender. There has not been a day that I do not weep for this child of mine. It has literally torn our family apart and has been a hell that I do not wish on anyone.

          We have been a God-fearing, God-loving, conservative close family. There was not any sexual abuse or liberal ideas forced on him. He never acted like a girl or asked for girl things.

          I am only sharing this for you to understand that we can put labels on people and assume they must have acted a certain way as to why they are the way they are. None of that is true for our family. We were/are a typical conservative family.

          In no way do I condone homosexuality or transgender people but I do look differently at all of it. I do not judge them to hell because only God can do that. I do see their pain.

          I pray every night and day that my son will have a conversion before he goes through all of the surgery and heartache that this man in the story has gone through. He has already told me the pain he had endured as a child. I wish I would have known something, but there was not a shred of evidence that something was wrong.

          I ask God almost daily what I did wrong, but I have since realized I need to focus on Jesus NOW for me and not in the past.

          You may think you have all the answers. I did at one time as well. Please, before you think you have everything figured out, pray for these poor people and for their families because they are on the same journey as you.

          • Fundisi

            First, in the name of Jesus, I offer you my sincere prayers and heart felt compassion for this great spiritual trial for your son and your family. While I have never faced this particular problem, my own son went astray with alcohol, drugs, deviant sexual conduct and even some criminal activity. While by God’s Grace he thankfully did come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, he died an untimely and most horrific death; and losing one’s child is a pain that seems unbearable, but I was comforted by knowing he died in the arms of the Lord. So, I can in some way relate to your inner suffering over the trial your child is facing.

            That being said, we are not very often the best judges of our own family, blinded by love. My late dear sister was dearly loved by everyone she knew for her strong Christian faith, for her steadfast prayer life and she raised her daughter to know the Lord. Yet, until the day she passed away, she could never admit to herself that her daughter, because of a wicked man she married, had become addicted to alcohol, drugs and even dealt drugs. My point is, especially with mother love, they are often willfully blinded to the sins in their own family and forgive me for saying this, but I suspect your statement to the effect, “We have been a God-fearing, God-loving, conservative close family. There
            was not any sexual abuse or liberal ideas forced on him. He never acted
            like a girl or asked for girl things,” simply cannot be true, there was/is something there that you have refused to admit even to yourself. This did not happen to your son in a spiritual vacuum, something was/is going on that opened the door to this clearly demonic activity that holds your son in bondage to the lie he is of a gender other than his sexual organs dictate.

            My goodness, that seems so judgmental, doesn’t it? Yet, if you are going to help your son, you need God’s help to open your eyes to the root cause of this attack on your son, you need to acknowledge that all was far from perfect in your home and his life. This could not happen otherwise!

            That being said, whether you believe it or not, in Christian charity; now you are weak in your faith, while you are struggling to understand why this is happening and why your prayers have not produced deliverance for your son. You need to seek out people of faith, people you know to be filled with the Holy Spirit, to join you in engaging in spiritual warfare against this attack from hell on your son’s life, and the prayers of faith of such people cannot help but bring about deliverance and healing for your son and your family.

            In Jesus Name, I join with this mother, this your child, and in Jesus Holy Name I bind the demons of transgenderism and sexual deviation that are holding this woman’s son in bondage, you foul demons I cast you out, I command you in Jesus Name to let go of her Son. Father I ask you to save her son’s soul, to fill Him with your Spirit and bring real, Spiritual healing to this family! Now if you join me in that prayer, if you seek out two or three Spirit filled brothers and/or sisters in Christ and you all take command in Jesus name over these demons, your son will be set free and healing will come to your home.

            Remember the battle is not yours, it is the Lord’s and you must give it to Him and no matter how dark it looks, trust Him Who will never fail you.

          • tessie

            “Trust in the Lord with all thy heart; lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.” Proverbs 3:5 Given to me as a Word of Knowledge when I first began my journey of faith. It was given because I was pregnant with my third child with no money and no insurance. God provided. Satan has been battling me ever since.

            My fifth child was conceived when I was ill. Many wanted me to abort. I did not. Always being pro-life this cemented in me even further my fervently pro-life stance. This child that I could have aborted, that many wanted me to abort is the child that now Satan is trying to take over.

            I know that this is a battle between light and dark, Good and evil and I know that this is the Lord’s battle. God told me when I was pregnant with this child that it was going to be okay. At the time I couldn’t see how it was going to work out. I told God I would give up my life if it would glorify Him and I would gladly give up my life now for the sake of my son. Right now, things look just as dark as it did when I was pregnant with him, but I am reminded of His promise to me and I cling to that promise.

            My husband and I pray each morning for our children. We will continue to pray and believe in His healing power to come over our family.

            I thank you for your prayers.

          • Fundisi

            I am sorry that you have been suffering so many trials, especially as you have tried to obey God. I know it must be agony.

            Who knows the exact reasons why we must face such trials, such suffering? Not only have I lost my son, but both parents, and all but one of my 9 siblings, four such deaths in the past few years, the loss of my dear sister who practically raised me and dearer than you can imagine was a very hard loss as well. Besides polio, I have been run over/hit as a pedestrian by cars three times, once I had a 350 lbs transformer hit me in the chest, once I was kidnapped at gun point, roughly a half dozen car accidents and on and on, so many great trials I cannot list them all. Yet, God has seen me through them all, I have never known a day without food, clothing, shelter and other basic needs of life. He is always faithful!

            So, I cannot know why such things have come upon you, but I do know that God cares for His children and that no trial is meant for our destruction, but to refine us in the Refining Fire of His Love for our good and His glory. We won’t even ask Him why when we see Him face to face, we will just know that it was all because He loves us and we will rejoice in having participated in the fellowship of Jesus sufferings.

            God bless you! Please seek other Holy Spirit filled people to join in you in prayer, they can add their faith to yours, they can be a source of encouragement and when the answer comes, as it will, they can rejoice with you and share in your blessings.

            I am sorry for your great loss. You have indeed suffered greatly.

            There are times when I feel like Job. My health, my finances (which have been returned to me) and now my children, but it is true, nothing can separate us from the Love of Jesus Christ. He is truly faithful and just like when I was in such physical pain at the time of my pregnancy I began to thank God for the pain and even thank God for the pregnancy that I had no idea how it would work out. I now thank God for this situation because I know somehow it will turn out for the glory of God. I immerse myself in that pain and it truly is like the “Refining Fire of His Love.”

            This is so embarrassing that I have not told anyone, but it is slowly getting out and I will find others to pray with besides my husband.

          • Fundisi

            God does not want you to carry this burden alone, He wants you to join with other true believers (Holy Spirit filled) that you may be mutually encouraged, gain spiritual strength and wage this spiritual war with other members of the Body of Christ. Not just for you – for them too, we are all members of one another, we are all part of Christ, when one member suffers we all suffer, when one member rejoices, we all rejoice.

            I will add you to my daily prayer list as well.

          • tessie

            Yes, I know and part of letting go is being humbled which is where we need to be. God will lead me to whom I should pray with.

            Thank you for your prayers.

      • The Last Trump

        That icky Bible again, eh Spoobie? Ruining so many lives and keeping people stupid. Way to promote the Word of God, “Christian”. You’re not fooling anybody, charlatan.

        • Spoob

          Do please enlighten us Rumpy, what great new breakthroughs and medical insights have appeared in the Bible in recent years on the subject of gender dysphoria?

          • The Last Trump

            I’m glad you asked. (Although it’s a shame you had to, “Christian”). It says “no”. “Bad”. And “the cure is Christ”.

          • Spoob

            That’s very strange, because it never said that for nearly 2000 years. Did the words magically appear recently?

          • The Last Trump

            Yeah, magic dum dum. Somehow, for over 2000 years traditional marriage was the law. IT couldn’t be found in the Bible though (duuuh). Magic influenced 2000 years of traditional marriage and considered homosexuality taboo. How embarrassing. “Christian”.

          • Spoob

            That’s fascinating Trumpy, but we have moved on to the subject of gender dysphoria, so why exactly are you hyperventilating over homosexuality? Hard to get your mind off it I guess, eh?

          • The Last Trump

            Oh, not a fan of facts? Time to change the subject and move on again, eh Spinster? Ok little buddy. What would you like the good people here to see you proved wrong about now?

          • Spoob

            No, Trumpy, there is no spin. Read the big bold headline at the top of your screen, take your meds and come on back.

    • The Last Trump

      Boy is this guy going to get it! The only thing the LGBT crowd hate more than genuine Christians is when one of there own blows the whistle on their deviant “born that way” lifestyle. Everybody might wanna step back a little bit. The HATE MACHINE is about to kick it into overdrive. Let the INTOLERANCE flow! This man will have to be silenced or written off as a flake who was “never actually transgender in the first place”, right? Riiiiiiiiight.
      Score another victory for Christ and a defeat for the depraved. One of the LOST has been found. Praise God!

      • Spoob

        WHEEEEE!!! Lookit me with the tinfoil hat, condemning all the people I can’t be bothered to understand!

        • The Last Trump

          Take off your hat, Booob. You’re yelling again! 🙂

          • Spoob

            Rah rah Christ! Let’s beat all these nasty depraved people, up God, you’re my best friend God, right God? Right? Right?

            Trumpy, when you discover all you can on the subject of gender dysphoria and homosexuality from reading only the Bible and think you can come back and write a peer-reviewed document on it longer than 5 words, by all means feel free to do so. Until that time, you’re a tinfoil hat raver.

          • Fundisi

            And you, without any question, are of the spirit of anti-Christ.

    • Deborah

      No one is born gay. It is a choice, and mostly steered into by drastic experiences. This is where the confusion commences.

    • Ken

      Another person filled with hate for his fellow man! I call em as I see em, and you here are all hateful people. The idea that you call yourselves Christians is despicable and an affront to God! Jesus himself would have condemned you all!

      • Fundisi

        On what basis would He condemn us? Because we believe homosexuality to be a sin and gay marriage as well? Is it because we defend the right of Christians not to participate in gay marriages by baking cakes or taking photographs of such false marriages? Why is it hate? To just throw around such accusations without defending them, is certainly not Christian either.

        God hates sin, Jesus hates sin, God hates certain sinners that entice others into sin and away from Him, especially sexual immorality. To call sin to be sin and to call such people to repentance is not hate, it is the very Love of God. To condone sin, to tolerate sin, to suggest that a homosexual can be saved and continue in their homosexual conduct – that is hate, it is to hate them and not care if they lose heaven and go to hell, rather than risk offending them.

        So, next time, defend your accusations with facts or stop wasting our time.

        • Ken

          You know what, I will not waste MY time on BIGOTS such as yourselves. Like I already said, there is no point arguing with a fundamentalist, because they are simple minded idiots, who walk around banging on their bibles, not knowing what they are talking about. End of story. If you want me to go away, then don’t reply to me. You are simply sad excuses for humans, period!

  • Lisa

    Does he care what he put his poor wife through? He wasn’t kind to her either, divorcing her to spare her which it probably didn’t spare her at all. I’m always hesitant to get behind people like this because in a couple years we may read about how he changed his mind again. Hope not, he does seem to be living in the truth.

    • Leslie Curlis

      Well, he was 37 when he decided to do it. He lived as a female for 8 years. He is now 74. Let’s do the math. He has been living as a man again for 29 years now. I don’t think this is going to change.

      • Lisa

        You’re probably right, I’m sure satan stopped tempting him back to his old life a long time ago.

      • Lisa

        Ya never know. I’m always hesitant to say anyone is safe from sin. Even after 29 years.

  • Deedee Keith

    AMEN..GOD IS GOOD..

  • Michael Lancuba

    Well hopefully he took the time to understand the commandment to repent in the name of Jesus, praying in thanksgiving for this man that God has wonderfully and fearfully made. Praise God.

  • Harry Oh!

    How are the gay trolls gonna explain this one? Have you ever heard of someone who was black, changed to white and then back to black again?

    • Michael Castner

      Oh yea.thats exactly the same thing.Also i am not gay.

  • MC

    I’m thankful that God healed this man’s mental illness.

    • Kara Connor

      Just like the leaders of Exodus, eh?

      • MC

        I don’t understand what you’re saying.

        • Spoob

          Exodus International was the largest “ex-gay” organization in the world until they admitted they were fraudulent and closed their doors and apologized to the entire gay and lesbian community.

  • Michael Castner

    This is one person out of millions.I wish you loving christians would stop exploiting this one person to say “told you so.”you should believe people when they say its not a choice.Mabey this guys lying.

    • Nicole Duvall

      Millions?

    • Fundisi

      If changing gender is not a choice, what is it? If denying one’s gender is not a choice, what is it?

      • Michael Castner

        Its just the way they were born.

        • Fundisi

          I must disagree and also suggest that what you said is just your subjective and might I suggest highly biased, spiritually sick, liberal opinion, not fact. In the story above, it is obvious to anyone with a desire for the truth to see, that this person was influenced by factors in his youth, by failed, liberal, even demonically influenced nurturing and even sexual abuse, to be swayed into thinking he was something he was not; and, while not stated, he may have been born with a susceptibility to the suggestions forced upon him.

          Further, and what is much, much worse, because of our wholly discredited psychiatric profession and a terribly sick liberal minded culture that demands every perverse desire be normalized and accepted, he was denied the professional medical care that would have helped him accept his gender identity and be emotionally healthy. Your side refused to accept that he was ill and needed help, your side in a false sense of compassion denied him the help he needed to deny this lie of gender identity confusion.

          Lastly, it was not only his family’s fault for the real abuse he suffered in nurturing as a child, but by their not being children of God, not fearing God and seeking Him in their lives, they opened the door to the demonic forces that sought to destroy his life. Yet, by God’s grace someone prayed, someone took him to the cross and there, as everyone like him and every homosexual or other deviant needs to go, he found the healing your liberal medical professionals and other liberal minded folk denied him, these latter folk rather seeing him sick and headed to hell than taking Him the the Great Physician for Salvation and healing.

          • Michael Castner

            So can a muslim transgender person be cured by allah?

          • Fundisi

            No! Allah the moon god is a creation of that murderous child molester Mohammad, Allah is a demon.

          • Terry Roll

            It is the same God of Abraham. Mohammad just claimed to reveal even more cool stuff from his discussions with some dude with wings. It is equally as verifiable as your religion.

      • SFBruce

        I suppose you’re correct to say transitioning from one gender to another is a choice, but the overwhelming feeling that one’s identified gender is at odds with the biological one certainly isn’t. I get the impression you think transgendered people undertake this just to stick it to religious conservatives. What’s your theory for how people find themselves in this predicament? I understand that this is far removed from most people’s personal experience, but I simply don’t understand the enormous antipathy directed towards transgendered people.

        • Fundisi

          As to my beliefs, see my response to Michael directly below.

          No, I do not believe that falsely called transgendered people are trying to stick it to religious conservatives at all. First, there is no such thing as being transgendered, it is a lie, these people are emotionally and spiritually sick, they are made sick through a susceptibility to suggestion, wicked nurturing, sexual abuse; and,a most damnable a liberal environment and failed medical profession that is not looking to help these people get free from their emotional illness, but who actually want to reinforce it and that refuse to help them.

          The fact is, the day this country officially turned its back on God, from that day on there was no longer any aversion to deviant sexual attitudes or conduct in our land and forces of anti-Christian liberalism demanded that there be no opposition, that all deviancy was not just to be understood, not just accepted, but they demanded and by force of law say it is normal and rather than be cured, it be applauded.

          • SFBruce

            So it’s all liberals’ fault. The best way to counter bad science is to offer up some good science to refute it; something you haven’t done. I sincerely hope Walt Heyer has found some peace, but the vast majority of men who transition to women have a different story to tell.

          • Fundisi

            I never said it was ALL liberals fault, I listed several contributing factors, but said only that “in our liberal, secular, practical atheist world these people do not get the emotional and spiritual help they really need.” That is what liberalism is all about, it is wholly secular, meaning for all intent and purposes atheist, anti-god. They not only tolerate every sort of evil, they demand such evil be considered normal and that even the Church must submit to that lie.

            “The best way to counter bad science is to offer up some good science to refute it; something you haven’t done.” If I did, you and your liberal minded, god rejecting scientific community would reject it, your side will not allow peer review or publication and destroy the careers of everyone that will not submit to liberal orthodoxy.

    • Liz Litts

      You want him to by lying so you can carry on with your screwed up lifestyle.Truth is not a matter of what you want.

      • Michael Castner

        Sorry mam.im not gay.

  • KCR

    God uses broken people.

    • John Anthony Montanez

      why?

      • KCR

        Because we cannot find Christ when we are full of ourselves. We must empty ourselves of self, so God and the Holy Spirit can fill us again. Broken people, like so many in the Bible, turned their hearts and minds toward things that would not perish, things eternal. These are the things that matter to God and are more important this this short earthly life. Love, God is Love….. without it we are nothing. Shallow empty bodies, waiting to be burned. The blood of Christ was shed for us ALL, we just need to repent and accept this gift from our Heavenly Father. No one else can give this to us.

  • grace4given

    What a beautiful testimony that is BADLY NEEDED at this strange time where we’re told we must accept everything to do with sexual preferences as “normal.” We are doing a huge disservice to our children. And I really loved how he said leaving his family was self centered and narcissistic. I keep reading and seeing gay people “come out” and leave their families who are called “brave.” There is nothing brave about betraying those who need and trust you so you can satisfy your flesh. Like this man, I was healed by Christ of some deep emotional issues that had me in bondage with fear, OCD, depression. Jesus Christ is the one true healer and I am so thankful for his patience and goodness. Nothing is better and more meaningful than to live for His glory and share what he has done in our lives. God bless this man for doing that.

    • Fundisi

      Praise God for your healing and your willingness to share your love of God here.

    • Terry Roll

      The point is that not everyone in America is a Christian. We all have to co-exist on some level, so the best way to do that is to let you live your life as you see fit, and gay folks live their lives as they see fit. They aren’t affecting you by being gay, and you still get your “eternal salvation” for living your life as you please. You don’t have to approve of people’s sexual preferences, but you do have to allow them to make their own choices.

      • grace4given

        No. You are wrong. This “gaying” of America hurts families, children especially and it is all based on a lie. Choosing to cut off body parts to feel normal is not normal. For years homosexuality was classified as a disorder until gays infiltrated the apa and changed that. They now have taken over Hollywood and liberal politics and are doing the same thing. God’s ways bring goodness and life. The way of sin brings destruction and death . These people are not healthy. They are acting out to fill a need formed by dysfunction in a dysfunctional way. God’s love heals that as this amazing testimony demonstrates.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    Yes, the transgender thing is an outright rebellion against God. Creatures should live as the Creator God has designed. Regarding change, it’s repentance that sinful mankind needs.

  • Death defeater

    I am so glad he got born again and found his true person in God and not in what the world offers.

  • Jack Rohde

    This guy is spot on, I’ve had gay friends tell me the exact same things, but the media ones wont listen

  • MichelofChrist

    Good for him.

  • Ken

    This is bullshit pure and simple!

    • grace4given

      So a serial rapist who is happy with himself is just great. I see.

      • Ken

        Typical bible banger reply! There is no comparison between a gender confused person, and a serial rapist! A rapist is harming people, a trans gender person is hurting NOBODY! You say you are Christian but you are a hater, plain and simple! Fundamentalism whether Christian or Muslim is anathema to God!

        • grace4given

          “Either you are happy with yourself, the way you are or you are simply a mess” – this is the comment I was responding to. But even so, this man himself said he acted in a selfish and narcissistic way. You think a man who has children isn’t hurting anyone is they decide to become a woman? Are you kidding me?! I used the serial rapist example as an extreme. But, the point was that a happy serial rapist IS a mess.

  • Bingo

    God bless Walt and his message of redemption to all who suffer this terrible disorder!

  • Wow_Who_Would_Think

    Finally, someone who says the truth about transgender – it is impossible to change one’s gender so live with the gender you were blessed with and don’t spend a fortune trying to live a lie by taking lots of drugs and having painful surgeries.

    When you get born again God will give you boldness to speak truth and truth will make you free to do so
    Ecclesiastes 8:1
    Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.
    Acts 4:13
    Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
    Acts 4:29
    And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
    Acts 4:31
    And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
    2 Corinthians 7:4
    Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation

  • Kathy Verbiest Baldock

    Here is my Amazon review of his book. His problem is not that he is trans — he suffers, by his OWN admission, some pretty several mental health issues.

    Hey, but at least he can make a living out of posing it as a trans-story.
