What about gender identity issues?

Similar to same-sex attraction, gender confusion itself is not a sin.  When someone embraces a gender identity apart from their biological, God-given identity, it is sin.  God created mankind “male and female” (Genesis 1:27, Psalm 139, 1 Corinthians 6:9) so when someone identifies or dresses themselves as an opposite gender, they have rebelled against God’s creative plan.
“A woman shall not wear a man's garment, nor shall a man put on a woman's cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.” (Deuteronomy 22:5 ESV)
