2Jo 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. He that gives him these prayerful greetings and encouragement becomes a partaker, to that extent, in his evil deeds.

My stepson who is 23 is a transvestite, has changed his name to a girl's name (not legally, but informally). He comes over to our home often on the weekends to spend time with us, eat with us, etc.. I no longer give him make up and beauty products or women's clothing, but is having any relationship with him at all "Godspeed"? My husband would not forbid him to come to the house, and I cannot impose this in my husband but want to be obedient to the Lord. What should we do? Is there an answer in Scripture? Does this verse apply to spending time with lost relatives? My parents are not born again either. How do I apply this verse to dealing with relatives?
