Transgenderism: The Consequences
Transgenderism: The Consequences
Written By David E. Smith   |   09.09.19

Since the time he was a young boy and his grandmother sewed him a purple dress and told him how beautiful he looked, Walt Heyer had struggled with transgenderism. Through elementary school and high school, where he was a successful student and athlete with a beautiful girlfriend, he hid his secret identity as a woman, and continued to do so through college and prestigious careers at both NASA and Honda, until he went through destructive therapy sessions and became an alcoholic, losing his job and nearly all of his respect. But then something changed–while sitting with a friend who was praying for him, he saw Christ, who promised Walt that “you are now safe with Me forever.”

Walt’s story is a story of brokenness and redemption through Christ Jesus, and a witness to the hope we can find through God alone.

Walt shared his story at the 2019 Worldview Conference earlier this year:
