Franklin Graham Speaks Out on Bruce Jenner’s Sex Change

Barb Wire

There is no lack of Christian options about Bruce Jenner coming out as transgender.

The ABC interview with Diane Sawyer rocked the ratings, Jenner’s Twitter account quickly surpassed President Barack Obama’s (who congratulated him with a “You go, girl!”), and his Vanity Fair cover put the proverbial cherry on top.

Now, evangelist Franklin Graham is speaking out.

Graham points to Vanity Fair‘s cover story about Bruce Jenner’s gender change, in which the author talks as if Bruce and his newly chosen identity of “Caitlyn” are two separate people.

Bruce’s son Burt said, “I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce.”

“The article also says Jenner openly acknowledges mistakes made with his children as Bruce, and ‘expresses genuine regret.’ I have news for them—changing the outside doesn’t change the inside,” Graham says.

“No man-made modification can fix what’s wrong with the heart. Only God can fix the human heart. If we ask for His forgiveness and accept by faith His Son, Jesus Christ, He will wipe the slate clean. The Bible says, ‘Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new’ (2 Cor 5:17).”
