Christians are an easy target for insults

I am writing to you to voice my dismay at the production which depicts my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, as a transgender woman, showing Him as the queen of heaven.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the sinless, spotless, Son of God and God the Son, the Second Person of the Divine Trinity.

He is the One who left the realms of Heaven to come into this dark world of sin. He came to go to the cross of Calvary, to suffer, to bleed and to die for guilty sinners.

The Bible teaches us that on the cross the price of our redemption was paid in full. Then, on the third day, He rose again from the dead, ascended into Heaven, where He lives and reigns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Ruth McCarthy says she understands some people may take offence at her portrayal of Christ. I believe that many people who know the Lord Jesus as their Saviour will indeed be offended and horrified.

To a born-again believer, the Lord Jesus Christ is precious. They love Him, serve Him, follow Him and live for Him only, because He has done great things for them.

But then, Ruth McCarthy and the LGBT people do not understand this, nor do they care.

All they are interested in is their own agenda.

So, if a Christian hotelier refuses them a bed, they are taken to court. Same if a Christian baker refuses to decorate a cake in the way they wish, or if a Christian printer will not take on a commission for them. Christians are seen as ‘soft targets’ – but be warned, this same Jesus, Whom these people depict as a weak transgender, will one day be their Eternal Judge. And, on that day, every wrong will be put right.

“Because He (God) hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness, by that man whom He hath ordained (Jesus Christ); whereof He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:31)
