It has never been a sin, nor will it ever be.
It has never been a sin, nor will it ever be.
That is to say: What do they look like?
I say, boldly, that Crusaders, many of the Medieval, Renaissance, and 18th century *popes(Urban II who called the Crusades), and modern day Fundamentalists are not Christians. Now I’m not saying that they are all going to hell(thats God’s place, not…
Or so I’d have it called! This summer, me and my youth pastor are starting up a group to support and love on other LGBTQ students!
I don’t imagine that it will be big, 3 or 4 students (at most) at first. But I definitely see that it’ll make a difference =)
*Called “Ex-Straight” by me b/c said LGBTQ persons are casting off their heterosexual/coming out of the closet(at least to the group).
While it is important to extend grace, love, and compassion to Conservatives who believe that our/our friends’[for Hetero. allies] feelings are an abomination, that same humility must coincide with firmness! Because remember, if their stance is not against just you. Rather against every man, woman, and child that feels romantically for the same sex (or are transgender/both)!
Matthew 18:15-20 sums up how to handle the matter perfectly:
“If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.
I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
In this way, defend those hurt by Bible-Abuse.
You don’t understand how much I love you and appreciate your support. You truly cannot comprehend how much I actually love you.
Gay, Straight, Queer, white, black, off-white beige: I love you. I try to, and do , as Christ does (given my, sadly, limited ability).
I do not post what I do in order to self-vindicate my sexuality, or to feel good about myself, or crusade fer’ JeSuuuusS. No. No I don’t.
I post and support LGBTQ Christians because of the Holy Spirit induced urge to vomit my entire phsycal being when I think of the pale, lifeless faces of young boys who couldn’t live with themselves any longer because of their God-given sexuality being an "an abomination"/"unnatural"/"an affront to God”. To see the bloody and scarred faces of a woman in South Africa who was raped for “corrective” purposes. To have your head ring with the envisioned or imagined, yet almost real SHRIEKS and SCREAMS of men bound together to a pole being cooked alive "in the name of Christ" from almost 1,500 years ago.
Those nightmares, those crimes are not of Christ. It is not Love, it is not God.
They are atrocities, they were begun by the lies of evil, ignorant, corrupt men(while, yes, Christ extends His love to them as He did to Saul/St. Paul) in an attempt to consolidate their power and justify their own predjudices using the veil of “Christianity”. The hurt and gut-wrenching pain they commited then, proliferates still today.
To me, I would be criminal to let it go unaddressed. I feel that it’s every Christian’s duty to defend the oppressed and to love them. Especially, if circumstances had been less kind, you’d be just as miserable.
Yes I am Gay. Yes I am Christian. Yes I love you. Yes I love Christ.
NO, homosexuality is NOT A SIN.
I feel that it is my job, in this tiny respect, to let you know that, LGBT kids and adults, God loves you. Straight friends, He loves you too.
And if I don’t change a single Conservative’s mind on here, so be it. If no one shares about what they read on here, so be it. Thats Christ’s job to touch hearts, I’m just a simple servant. No more.
And if I DO, please tell that I may know!
But my faith doesn’t hang in the balance for it.
Thanks for reading =)

Joel, it’s not natural to you because it’s not in your nature to be attracted to another man. It’s just as unnatural to me to be attracted to women. I love women. They’re magnificent creatures. My mother is a woman. But I’m not attracted to them. I have no desire to have relations with them, to…
