Anonymous said: Hi, so I am a struggling Pansexual Christian coming from a very religious family and I've been feeling very miserable about myself. I've been praying and praying to God to help me. I feel that if I come out, my family won't accept me. I didn't choose to be this way and I hope they will realize that. I believe everything In the bible. I am a born again Christian and I know that practicing homosexuality is wrong but I'm only human, how am I supposed to be happy if I can marry someone.
Contrary to what you’ve been told, sexual diversity is part of God’s creation. God made us all a little bit different in certain aspects, yet essentially the same. And to be pansexual is just as normal as to have red hair. You have nothing to feel miserable about or to be ashamed of. It’s the people who tell you you’re wrong for being yourself who should be ashamed.
Perhaps you should wait until you’re independent of your family to come out. Stick with us and we’ll continue to uplift you and help you strengthen your faith. Be well.

I don't see a point in following Him now because He probably hates me anyways, and He'll probably send me to hell for it. I'm not even sure He exists. I don't understand; if He doesn't make mistakes why does He create bisexual people, especially since He hates homosexuality?
God doesn’t hate LGBT people. God loves us all. We are all God’s children. And all people will ultimately be reconciled with God.
Don’t listen to the people telling you you’re wrong just because of who you love. People look at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart!
My heart breaks for you. May you come to realize that you are God’s beloved; in you God is well pleased. -EM

Thanks be to God! We’re so happy for you, anon, and thanks for your kind words. Ministering to you all is the closest thing I’ve got to a real job, so you have no idea how much your words mean.
Speaking of a job, if any of you have a welcoming and affirming church in need of a pastor, I’m now up for grabs! My preference is to the US Northeast or Pacific Northwest. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Also, I can’t take all the credit for helping folks like you. Past contributors Connor and Ian and current contributors Sean and Rachel are also to thank.
