Christian and Transsexual

    I've mentioned a few times that I come from a christian family and they are having trouble fully accepting me. In fact, from a christian POV or what my family tells me as much as I feel like I want to go FtM and get the surgery, that'd be the final nail in the coffin and would "send me to hell". In other words, if I "give in" and have sex with girls once in awhile I may be forgiven, but if I go through with the lifestyle and get the sex change, there's no way I'll be going to heaven.. So to be 100% honest I'm a bit scared to go through with this at times to say the least. Are there any christian members out there with advice? (Anyone can comment though of course). I probably should've asked this sooner, but I was nervous to be honest. I don't want to offend anyone or be seen as a coward for not living the lifestyle, but I also don't want my family to hate me. I don't believe my mom will hate or disown me, but my dad might... That's why I'm worried.
