Androgyne (Background of  androgynous behaviour)

Androgynous phenomenon has increased significantly in the present time. What are the things behind androgynous behaviour? What are the things that cause androgynous behaviour? In this writing I try to give answers to questions mentioned above.

The purpose of my writing is not to provoke or agitate anyone against androgynous people or someone else, but study the background and a phenomenon called androgyny. I am studying in my writing androgyny at the present time, historical roots of androgyny and androgyny in the light of the Bible.

Androgyne (aner - gyne)

Androgyne comes from Greek words aner (male) and gyne (female). The definition of anfrogyne is diverse, because androgyne can feel that he is not male or female, but he is so called third gender and like this he can be in different situations either male or female. Generally androgyne is defined as a person who has not gender or his gender is undefined.

Feelings of androgyne

Some androgynes don't belong that they are not male or female- Some androgynes can feel that they are at the same time male and female or change their gender depending the situation. Some androgynes have adopted psychologically gender of an androgyne and other androgynes can question their gender or live in the gender in which they have been born.

Sometimes androgynes have been categorized as transsexual person and at times they are seen differently as transsexuals. Some androgynes don't get to dress up men's clothes or women's clothes, but some can get dressed up depending on the situation either men's clothes or women's clothes.

Androgyne can express himself more male or female depending on the day or his mood. Some androgynes can unify masculine and feminine personality in a way that they are at the sane male and female.

Some androgynes accept the gender in which they have been born, but some want to change their natural gender with the help of hormones and an operation. Generally androgynes accept their natural gender, but they may dream and fantasize opposite sex body or some body parts. This dream can be sometimes very powerful and lead to unpleasant feelings (dysphoria) or transsexual feelings. Some androgynes can end up to a process in which they change their natural gender of the opposite sex.

Androgynous behaviour is diverse, but we can classify them by these groups: Feminine androgyne, in which femininity is dominant feature; masculine androgyne, in which masculinity is dominant feature; Neutral androgyne, in which is as much feminine and masculine features.

The sexuality of androgynes is also diverse. Some like women and some men, some are bi-sexuals. Androgyne who has been born as a woman and likes women can call as a lesbian. Androgyne who has been born as a man and likes men can called as homosexual. Some androgynes are interested as sexually other androgynes, which can be either same gender or opposite gender.

Background and roots of androgyny

Ishtar (Astarte-Ashtart) was Babylonian, Assyrian and Sumerian goddess of fertility, war, love and sex. Ishtar has been described as androgyne who has men's beard and who was as the evening star as a woman and as the morning star as a man.

Babylon. In ancient Babylon they believed that God was an androgyne (at the same a man and a woman) and that at first Adam was created as androgyne (Adam-Kadmon). Some Jewish kabbalists rabbies adopted Babylonian teaching that at first Adam was androgyne. From Babylon the doctrine about androgyny spread out elsewhere and, for instance Gnosticism taught that Adam was created at first as light body, spirit and he was called Adam-Kadmon, heavenly Adam. They believed that Adam-Kadmon was not a man, but an androgyne (male-female person) who over time fascinated from the matter and incarnated as the flesh. According to Gnostic doctrine, Adam the divine androgyne in his incarnation split up as two genders and became as Adam and Eve.

Gnosticism. According to Gnostic belief, God is androgyne, because His name means mother-God (El-Shaddai). According to Gnostic belief, God is both a male and a female and when God created a man, so He gave a man His own characters, the characters of a male and a female.

According to Gnostic belief, Adam-Kadmon - Adam-Eve was in spiritual androgynous condition and in his veins was not blood, but he was full of divine light. According to Gnostic belief, when Adfam changed the matter, so the divine light congealed in his veins and changed as the blood and then from him divine splendor and glory disappeared.

In Gnosticism was also different variations about androgyny. According to Gnostic belief, Barbelo was a goddess who created goddess Sophia. Goddess Sophia was according to Gnostic belief, virginal divinity who bore Jahveh God, about which became the God of Hebrews (Israel).

Gnostics believed that Barbelo was the most high divinity of the universe, who created everyone else lower divinities and those lower divinities created the world. According to this belief lower God created the world. They believed that Barbelo was the womb of the universe from which everyone else has been originated. They believed that Barbelo was the power behind the creation and Barbelo represented the fertility and the birth. They believed that Barbelo was an androgyne (the third gender), who is a mother and a father, because he copulated with himself. They believed that Barbelo copulated with those people who love him and that all things consist in Barbelo. They believed that Barbelo was the womb, which gives the form to all things and who bore the light that shines magnificently.

New-Age. Some New-Age circles teach that the blood is congealed light, which was the consequence about the fall of Adam (Adam changed himself as the matter when he forsook the divinity) and that the blood of a man must come as the pure light, if a man want to return his former androgynous divine condition.

Occultist Helena Blavatsky taught that God was an androgyne and Adam-Kadmon was an androgyne.

Masonry (freemasons). In masonry they are worshipping god Baphomet, who is an androgyne, in which combines a male and a female. Baphomet has woman's breast and a man's sex organ that has described in erection. Around Baphomet penis has intertwined two snakes.

The lie of Babylon and Gnosticism

When we study the teaching of the Bible about the creation of a man, so we see clearly that androgyny is the deception of satan, which began in ancient Babylon and it will reach its peak in the last day society before the second coming of the Lord Jesus.

Gen 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God (El-Shaddai); walk before me, and be thou perfect.

The Hebrew word shad means a breast of a woman, a man and animal. From this many people have made conclusion that the God of the Bible is an androgyne. The Hebrew word Shaddai comes from the word shadad, which allegorical meaning is powerful. The word Shaddai comes from the word shadad, not from the word shad. Thus the claim that God of the Bible is the mother God who has a woman's breast is a false claim. The Bible doesn't teach that God is a male of a female, but the Spirit. God of the Bible is not an androgyne, because God is not a human person, but the everlasting Spirit.

The Babylonians and Gnostics wrong belief about God is a result from the deception of satan who want to deceive all people to believe that they are gods. According to this deception a man would come as a god through androgyny. The God of the Bible didn't create a man as a God, but as a man who lived his life according to the will of God, which means becoming as the image of God.

According to the testimony of the Bible, God is the Almighty (El-Shaddai) the Creator and He is not an androgyne.

Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Gen 5:1 ¶ This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

Gal 5:
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Some people say that God is an androgen, because He created a man and a woman in His own image. The making of the image of God doesn't mean that God make of a man as God, but that God make of a man as the image and the likeness of God who as a man of thoughts, words and deeds would act and live according to the will of God. The likeness of God doesn't mean that a man is a God, but as the condition of the heart and the mind, in which a man lives according to the will of God. Thus we can forget allusions that God is an androgyne, because it is non-Biblical and wrong teaching.

Gen 2:7  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

According to the truth of the Bible, God created Adam of the dust of the ground. Adam has not been existed before creation. Thus Babylonian and Gnostic lie that Adam exists as divine androgyne being before coming the flesh is deception and wrong teaching.

The motive behind androgyny

Androgyny is not today's invention, because in the early days of mankind's history androgyny impacted in Babylon. From Babylon androgyny has spread to all over the world.

Who invented androgyny? In Babylon, satan engendered androgyny for the reason that people would believe that God is an androgyne and that through androgyny a man can become God.

I believe and think that many androgynes of the present day don't understand or reach for divinity by androgyny. However, the fact is that in ancient Babylon was the doctrine that a man can come as God through androgyny.

Thus is very clear that behind the present day andorgyny impacts the same Babylonian motive and doctrine that every androgynes doesn't know or recognize. According to the Bible the goal of satan has been from the beginning to deceive people away from the salvation and the truth of the word of God. A certain part of this deception the lie that a man can come as God through androgyny. I believe that in the last days people begin to say that androgyny is a divine thing.

The opponent of God is satan who hates the truth of God and people whom God has created. For this reason satan wants to destroy them and distort masculinity and feminity. Therefore, satan wants to destroy the sexuality and masculine and feminine identities that God has created.

2 Thess 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

According to the teaching of the Bible in the time of the last days in the world impacts antichristian powers and by those evil power aspirations is to make of a man as God. We can see it already in the time where we are living that from the impact of antichristian spirit the effort is to make a man as God.

In Wiccanism many rites leads people to an androgynous way of thinking. The goal is to adopt at the same time masculine and feminine features.

In Hinduism Shiva deity and god is an androgyne. The yoga is the way of Hinduism, which is the way of spiritual growth in which people try to control Ida-channel (femininity) and pingala-channel (masculinity) and by those channels he can get a contact to sushuma-channel who is the spirit that comes from on high.

The spiritual growth of yoga leads people to androgynous experience that connects him with universal spirit. The spirit of yoga is the spirit of satan, who deceive people away from the salvation and the truth of the God of the Bible. The spiritual growth of yoga teaches that a man will be united with divine spirit (satan). Through the spiritual growth of yoga the goal is to achieve androgynous experience. Yoga has the same element as ancient Babylon has, which teaches that through androgyny people can come as gods.

The deception. Behind the androgynous behaviour is the deception, in which the deception says that a man can come as a god through androgyny. In androgyny is several variations that people don't recognize, although those things are very clearly androgyny. People don't hold certain things as androgyny, although we can see that they are based on androgynous behaviour.

Androgynous phenomena are among other things drag queen entertainment. The purpose of drag queen is upset and ironize gender roles. The central drag queen element is to perform and behave as opposite gender, in which he goes over the border of his natural gender. Drag queen has earlier connected to gay and lesbian cultures, because at first many drag queens were gays and lesbians. Drag queen entertainment androgynous comes out very clearly from the behaviour and dressing of drag queen. Drag queen entertainment is not harmless entertainment, but androgynous behaviour.

In transgenderism people think that they are opposite gender and that they have born in the wrong body. Transgenderism is also androgynous behaviour, because transgender person tries to be opposite gender and don't accept his natural body. Transgender behaviour is very clearly androgynous behaviour. In transgenderism a person is lost from his own identity and he tries to live according to the wrong gender identity.

Bisexual individuals are also practicing androgynous behaviour, because they try to live in sex affair at the same with the opposite and same sex gender. Bisexual person's sexual identity is broken and mixed with wrong sexual orientation.

Transvestism is also anrogynous behaviour. Transvestism is also called as cross-dressing, because transvestite is attracted to dress himself in opposite sex clothes. Some transvestite men can also make up themselves in the same was as women do. Sometimes transvestite want to disengage himself from his own gender by dressing in the way of the opposite sex. Transvestism is very clearly androgynous behaviour.

Intersexuality is very unusual. If someone is borne by genetic mutation or abnormality of sex chromosome as hermaphrodite, in which he has no male or female sex, so it is not his fault and he is not in charge of anyone about it.

When a man is borne as a man and he has a man's body, so he is a man. If he believes or think that he is an androgen or a woman so into question is a disorder condition in his mind. For this reason he doesn't recognize his natural identity as a man. It is very sad that many authorities support people to live as an andogynes or transgenders persons, although they should guide and support to accept their natural biological gender.

In the last days of the mankind some women want a muscular body that they would look like a muscular man. These women want to be a woman, but they also want muscular body that looks like a men's muscular body. They want to mix up a female and a male in their body, which is androgynous behaviour and insurgency against God. Women's exercise is not a sin, but very good thing. This thing comes as a sin when a woman wants to look like muscular man. To feminity belongs feminine, womanly and womanlike body and women's bodies shouldn't be and look like as muscular men's body. When a woman looks like muscular man so in question is androgynous behaviour, in which the goal and purpose are mixing up femininity and masculinity.

In the last days the border of sexual identity and genders will be distorted and for this consequence, some people drift to androgynous behaviourism as transgenders, transvestites and so on. In ancient Babylon, they believed that Barbelo was a mother and a father (female and male), so also in the last days, many people will come into a condition of disorder that they don't recognize their natural and biological gender.

Like Barbelo practiced sex with all who loved her according to teaching of Babylon and Gnostic, so in the last days, many people practice sex between one another in several heterosexual, bisexual, gay sex and lesbian sex affairs. The same deceiving and lying spirits that deceived Babylonians and Gnostics are deceiving also people of the last days. The same deceiving and lying spirits are influencing in the present time distorted sexuality, in which is not any limits, but sex is practiced by anyone in all distorted and perverted ways.

In the same as the Babylonians and Gnostics identity was lost, so at the present time, many people have lost their natural and biological identity. For this reason many men want to be as women and many women want to be as men. The borders of sexuality and biological gender tried to wipe out and the consequence is that many men and women are confused and they don't recognize their natural and biological gender identity. God has created a man as a man and a woman as a woman, but in the last days sinner societies live in rebellion of sin against God, and that we can see for example through many variations of androgynous behaviour.

Androgynous behaviour is the deception that leads you into separation from your natural and biological sexuality and gender identity. It is very clear that when you don't live according to your own natural and biological identity, so you drift into problems. At the beginning you can feel that this is a great and fine thing, but in the end you must face all the problems that a false identity will bring into your life.

At the present time, society in many ways supports androgynous behavior, in which tried to destroy the differences of masculinity and feminity. God of the Bible created a man and a woman and placed between them certain differences. Men and women must appreciate and honour one another, but differences of genders of male and female we can't change. In this respect present time people are rebelling against God and insidious impact of androgyny can be seen more clearly in the society.

Rev 17:
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Babylon the great, the mother of harlots has double meaning, because it means end times sinful city and the doctrines, habits and spirit of ancient Babylon's religion.

In the verse Rev 17:5 Babylon the great means Babylon's ancient religion, spirit, doctrines and habits. This comes out of the words the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. The word harlot has also double meaning, which means sexual sin and spiritual fornication (worshipping of idols). Rev 17:5 speaks about spiritual fornication, in which people of the last days are practicing Babylon's ancient religious doctrines and habits by seducing evil spirits.

Rev 17:5 abominations of the earth expose that into question is ancient Babylon religion, which was the first religion in the world. It was mother-god and goddess religion, in which were worshipped queen of heaven and goddesses. Rev 17:5 mother conception connected to harlots of the earth means that Babylonian religion was the first religion in the world and all religion have originated and got influences from it.

This means that in the last days mankind is affecting ancient Babylon's religious doctrines and habits. In Babylon they believed, among other things, to androgyny. This means that in the last days satan impacts in the mind and hearts of person's androgynous behavior and therefore androgynous phenomenon can be seen nowadays so strongly in many things.

Through androgyny satan want to destroy a creation of God, in other words, masculinity and feminity and mix them up with one another. It is very clear that people in rebellious sin against God will come to suffer from it in many ways.

The last day mankind lives in a great rebellion against God of the Bible. In this rebellion the people accept the teachings and habits of ancient Babylon religion (androgynous behavior and so on). In the same they accept Gnostic impacts (also androgyny). Androgyny is not the present time invention, but the lie and deception, by which satan deceives men and women to despise their natural and biological gender identity. Androgynous behaviour is very old and ancient deception.  

2 Tim 3:
1 ¶ This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

The Spirit of God spoke through the apostle Paul saying that the last days people have many negative and sinful features. When we study 2 Tim 3:1-5, so we can see that the Bible also speaks about androgyny as sin of the end time.

In 2 Tim 3:2 words lovers of their own selves is in Greek the word philautos, which means selfish and lover of own self. The Bible mentions selfishness (egotism and loving one's self)as the first sin of the last day people. The last days people are selfish and lover of own selves and those sins distorts the mind and deeds of the people.

In 2 Tim 3:3 words without natural affection is in Greek the word astorgos, which means without natural affection, unsociable, inhuman and unloving. According to teaching of the Bible the last days people are without natural affection, unsociable, inhuman and unloving.

This means that sin has distorted their hearts in a way that some of them can't love them or others by natural love and for this reason they live in homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality and in many forms of androgyny. Some people in the last days are short of natural emotions towards themselves and they are not pleased themselves. For this reason they drift into androgyny and transgenderism.

The word of the Bible testifies that some people of  the last days don't recognize their natural and biological identity and not theirs natural features and not theirs natural emotions. When the mind of a man is mixed up by sins, so he can drift into androgyny and transgenderism. According to the word of God those features are sin and rebellion against God.

In 2 Tim 3:3 the word incontinent is in Greek the word akrates, which means without self-control and intemperate. When sin distorts the mind of a man, so he has no self-control and power to resist abnormality and therefore he drifts under the influence of abnormality. The prophetic word of the Bible says that lack of self-control and intemperate will be increased in the last days.

In 2 Tim 3:4 words lovers of pleasures is in Greek the word philedonos, which means lover of pleasure and loving pleasure. The word philedonos comes from the words philos and hedone. The original meaning of the word hedone meant such which pleasing sense of taste. The meaning of the word hedone expanded to mean everything such, in which connected pleasures and all that pleased senses. In the Hellenistic era Greek wisdom teachers gave to the word hedone meanings as pleasure of sense, sexual pleasure and uncontrollable passion or lust. In Paul letter to Timothy the word philedonos has the meaning that describes the sins of sexual lust and uncontrolled sexual lust. The last days people are under of sexual lusts.

From the second letter of Paul to Timothy comes out, how 200 years ago the prophetic word of the Bible knew that some people in the last days are lacking natural affection drifting into homosexuality, how some people are lacking natural emotions and lacking to know their natural biological identity, which leads to androgynous behaviour and transgenderism.

Pagan religions and androgyny. Ancient Babylonian and Gnostic cult is the deception of satan. The same deceiving satan impacts nowadays androgyne deception having adding new features to it. For example, New-Age movements, spiritual growth of yoga and freemasons teach about androgyny.

The way of yoga's spiritual growth is based on the teachings of Hinduism. Yoga teaches about Ida-channel (feminity) and Pingala-channel (masculinity), which combine together connecting people to become one with the universal spirit according to the teaching of yoga. This is teaching of androgyny. Wiccanism is also teaching that people should attain at the same masculine and feminine features.

It is indisputably very clear that nowadays androgynous behaviour impacts in many ways and many people are unnoticed about it. This insidious unseen androgynous behaviour influence prepares people to accept androgyny. Ancient androgyny deception has invaded to the life of people who are living in this present time and more and more many people live with androgynous behaviour.

Man and woman. Creation of God.

Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

God created a man and a woman to have a different features. Different genders separate men and women from each other. God meant that a man is a man and a woman is a woman.

In creation of God men have manly features and women have womanly features. God did not create a man to have a womanly features and not a woman to have a manly features. The gender roles have a very significant meaning, because both genders need one another. Men need women in their life and their womanly support and help and women need men in their life and their manly support and help. When a man and a woman are in their own natural genders and live according to the will of God, so their interrelationship works the best possible way.

When people break by androgynous behaviour the gender roles that God has set up, so then comes big problems and people's mind will be broken and they get sick of mental disorder.

Gen 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

An help meet is in Hebrew the word ezer, which means help, succour and one who helps. When God made woman as a companion to the man, so the task of a woman was to help a man and support him. Men should receive women's help and support. In this way a woman has very important task, because a woman is suitable helper and supporter of a man and a man needs help and support of a woman.

When we study more the Bible, so we see that when God had created a woman, so He meant that a man should help and support a woman. Women should receive men's help and support. In this way a man has a very important task, because a man is suitable helper and supporter of a woman and a woman needs help and support of a man.

In the marriage working interrelationship between a man and a woman comes out very beautifully, when both live according to the will of God loving and honouring one another.

Through androgynous behaviour people broke the borders of genders that God has set up. Breaking those borders means that many people are selfish who want for themselves both features of a man and a woman. God has set up borders on genders to men and women and if people break this border, so into question is sin and rebellion against God.

Deut 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

Deut 22:5 do not say only that a woman shall not wear men's clothes and a man shall not wear women's clothes, but that a man can't reach for womanlike and that a woman can't reach for manly features. It is also obvious that, for example, women clothes (brassiere) are not suitable for men.

In the Bible is very clear teaching about the borders of genders that we shouldn't break. I bring out a few examples that shows what happen if we break the natural roles and borders.

If you try to row with rowing boat on the highway, so you are in a big problem, because the rowing boat has planned to use at sea or lake. If you try to drive a car at sea or lake, so you are in a big problem, because a car has planned to use and drive on a road. In the same way, if a woman tries to be a man or a man tries to be a woman, so it follows a big problem.

The choice that God of the Bible offers

The truth of the Bible comes out more clearer when mankind is drifting more and more into rebellion against God. The prophecies of the Bible are fulfilled before our eyes, but yet many people are rebelling against God. The love of God is magnificent, because He calls men every where to repent their sins and believe in the Lord Jesus.

A man can't convert you to believe the Bible, but you can choose it voluntarily. The Lord God offers you salvation through faith in Jesus. Alternatives are eternal life with God or everlasting damnation. The Lord Jesus loves you and want to saves you. You shall decide that what you do with your unique life.

1 Tim 2:
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
