Faith without works is dead.
be-yourself-un-apologetically-d asked: Do any of you ever worry that your relationship with Christ is weaker because your gay (or did you feel like that when you first realized you were)? I seem to feel like that ALOT lately now that Im accepting the fact... :/
I believe that wherever there is love in a relationship there is God,especially if that relationship is Christ centered. A relationship does not fall apart because it has two people of the same sex but because those two people aren’t going to work at that time and place or maybe they just aren’t the right people for each other….Our relationships are not inferior or weaker than heterosexual ones.
2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.
5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,[b] 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”
13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”
safelytoshore asked you: So I don’t know if you know anyone who lives in/around the Phoenix, Arizona area, but this Sunday, my church (Jacob’s Well in Chandler) is doing a series “Bullied by the Bible” and the theme is homosexuality. My pastor said it’d be encouraging for anyone who is LGBT Christian… it’d be awesome for any people who want to hear about it and live in the area to come!
klaiby asked: I have a question that's been bothering me for some time now.. (I've been getting mixed messages from Gay Christians who I have trusted and respected). Is it alright to have gay sex... since most states don't allow marriage? If so, does it give us a license to do what ever we want with whoever we so choose? and if that's true, how are we any better the kind pagans? is there some basic code of conduct we should follow? Or is oral sex permissible, so long as you are young and horny? thank you
I think as Christians we should treat our bodies as “temples of the holy spirit” which for me means only having sex with people I am in love with and am having a long term relationship with. That doesn’t mean I haven’t slipped from that path but as a general rule that’s what I stick to.
I however won’t tell someone not to have one night stands (as long as they are being safe) because it is not my body, it is theirs.
Sex and sexuality are gifts from God and they are there to be enjoyed. As long as you are safe and happy revel in one of the many pleasures in life that God has given us. If you don’t feel like you are honouring God with your sex life then change your behaviour.
