Jade, I do not believe GOd created inter-sexed conditions. As far as hermaphrodites are concerned I do think things like it are mentioned in the Bible. Not that specific example. But to us, it is just the genetic code breaking down once in awhile. Been happening since the fall and will continue to happen till the end. In the example you posted above in Matthew 19:24, a few verses before 19:12 Jesus is talking about some people being BORN Eunichs, some being made (castrated) into them and some choosing to be celibate for faith.
Disease and the corruption of our genetic code is not a punishment from God (as some idiots claim). It is something that happens in nature. Now again I hate debating a statistical grain of sand, (the numbers of hermaphrodites) vs the greater majority. But of course it IS important to the person who is that grain of sand. (Again statistically speaking) The Bible could not list every possability in life. If I was a hermaphrodite, I would pray first and then seek advice from a spiritual councilor that they like and have learned enough about to trust.
Look, I will be honest and open myself up to more ridicule, I believe the Bible and in God. But do I agree with everything? Of course not, I would be a little dissapointed if God thought exactly like FrankinNJ. (A little scared too).. When that happens, I pray and study.
For the record ANYONE in the LGBT community has as much of God’s love as I have. Christians do not have the market on God’s love. Anyone, anywhere should be allowed into God’s true churches, however, just as when I might not agree with something, they do not have the right to demand the churches views be changed, if it can not be backed up by scripture.
(Forgive my spelling, it is a weakness) and sorry for being long winded and souonding preachy.
