The Seventh-day Adventist Church released a statementon April 11, 2017 regarding the position of the church regarding transgenderism and the attitude that SDA Church members should have toward transgender individuals. I found the statement to be very carefully thought through and compassionate while being grounded in bible truth. I’m including the entire text below for your benefit.

This post is not intended to be a full manifesto on this big topic of how to keep the Sabbath* holy. I’d just like to stress a few points, because too often I see Sabbath-keeping Christians refraining themselves from working on the Sabbath and yet making others work on the Sabbath; or in other cases indulging in worldliness during the Sabbath.
