Isaiah 56:3 "Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree."

Isaiah 56:4 "For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;"

Isaiah 56:5 "Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off."

Consider the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8:27-38. After Phillip explained who the prophet was in Isaiah 53, (he preached Jesus to him v.35) the eunuch believed and was baptized.

We really need to look at the condition of the heart of why the male was castrated. I believe we live under what Christ did on a cross for us. If a male gets castrated because of a medical condition the condition of his heart is correct but if a male decide to get castrated because of his immorality then he falls under the condition of his heart and God will bring judgement upon that male and what the bible teaches of the merciful God we all serve if you truly ask for forgiveness and turn from a in correct heart then I believe all is forgiven..
