Being a Gay Christian

Here are my struggles to reconcile my religion & sexual orientation. I used to think that being a Christian and being gay were mutually exclusive. God revealed to me that I am his child, created Just As I Am. God’s awesome gift comes with challenges, yet opportunities to share the good news to many who have rejected religion. Or who have suppressed their sexuality to keep their religion. I welcome this ministry and the unbelievable strength he gives me to do it.

Name:

I'm gay and while that does tell you which gender I want to fall in love with, it tells you nothing about my lifestyle. As you read you'll learn about that.

How Many More

"How many more gay people does God have to create before we ask ourselves whether or not God actually wants them around?" Rep. Steve Simon of Minnesota asked.

God was a volcano. Stop worrying about everything. Now please spread the word. Islam is taking over the Western world. If you think Christians give you a hard time, think how hard it will be when Islam takes hold.

God didn't creat gays just like he didn't create fornicators, liars, thieves, child abusers or any other sinner. God doesn't judge the person, He judges the sin in that person. Too many "christians" judge the person instead of judging the sin. I have gay friends that are christian and I don't care that they're gay because I love the person, not the sin. I pray for them and that they do what God calls them to do in their lives. God doesn't create sin, stupid people blaming God create sin.

Heyy i like the way you express your self about your situation. Im 25 and not out at all. I love God, but feel so confused about what to do with my life, just feels like the two spirits post, thats my thing. Would love to feel free of having a good man next to me and praise God in his company. But thats imposible! Mostly where i live, in Guatemala i would love to chat and have friends who understand me.

Nearly every person who acknowledges an aversion to homosexuality does so on the basis of what he or she believes the Bible has to say. In their mind, there is no doubt whatsoever about what the Bible says and what the Bible means. Their general argument goes something like this: Homosexuality is an abomination and the homosexual is a sinner. Homosexuality is condemned in both the Old and New Testaments. Therefore, if we are to be faithful to the clear teachings of Scripture we too must condemn homosexuality. Needless to say, this premise is being widely debated among evangelicals today and seriously challenged by biblical scholars, theologians and religious leaders everywhere.

It rarely occurs to any of us that our reading of Scripture is profoundly colored by our own cultural context and worldview. In light of the post above and since I happen to speak and write on this very topic, I thought you might find some of these posts of particular interest and relevance. I would particularly recommend the following:

“Genesis 19: What Were the Real Sins of Sodom?
"Leviticus 18: What Was the Abomination?"
"Romans 1: What Was Paul Ranting About?"
"Romans 2: Paul's Bait and Switch"
“Genesis 1: Turning the Creation Story into an Anti-Gay Treatise”
"Why No One in the Biblical World Had a Word for Homosexuality"
“Exegesis: Not For the Faint in Heart”

Interesting thought. I'm a firm believer that God created men in the image of him a man/person NOT by sexual preference what difference does it make who you decide to fall in love with.

God gives us road blocks in our life and gives us the chance to clear them. God loves to see us triumph over the difficulties he puts in our lives and that is how he sees us. Gay is not bad it is just one of those road blocks he put up and wants us to over come and live our lives normal event thou he put people on earth that dislike us. He is testing us that is what I believe it is and he want to see if we are worthy of living in his kingdom.

I honestly wonder if one can be a "Gay" Christian. You are born that way, but has a true "gay gene been discovered? Is one actually born so? Isn't one purpose of a relationship with Christ to change our "human and sinful nature" to be more compliant with Holy God? Can one truly claim to love God, yet continue a lifestyle of sin? Isn't repentance a condition of forgiveness from God? A TRULY repentant heart? Did not God create man and woman as partners, sexually as well as emotionally? How does one "explain away" some rather strong anti-homosexual verses in the Bible, the Christian's only source of TRUTH!! Why must humans claim "wrong interpretation" whenever something is 'hard' to accept in the Bible? Does it mean homosexuals are less 'human?' NO..or less worthy of love? NO!! NO!! But God doesn't love us to let us stay as we are! HE wants to CHANGE us...to make us like His SON! Are you growing to be more like HIM? Does God hate Gay people? NO NO!! Does He love them? YES YES! If you have the Holy Spirit, He will convict you, immediately, of your sin and bug you until you repent; that small still voice. You dear heart, wouldn't need to have a blog, and to defend yourself, if you were right with God. You know you are living a life that is not pleasing to God. If you love Him, the name of the game is SACRIFICE! Which do you Love more? Being Gay or Loving God? Are you willing to put Jesus first, before your need to be Gay/have a partner? Jesus said either you are for me or against me; those who are 'lukewarm' will be spit out of His mouth? Which will you choose? God Bless!

Hey Scott. Out of love I must talk to you. Is God love, mercy, forgiveness, acceptance? but He is also holy and no one shall behold Him without holiness. About being Christian and gay I had doubts but when I read Matthew 19:1-6, I understood that Jesus was clear about that. I won't tell you a thing. You read this and tell me what you think.
