  1. This raises an issue beyond the question of homosexuality and the church. I'm thinking of a host of identifiers who have their own idea of how much their gender, or sexual orientation, their race or religion, their class or their physical or mental features, figure in the estimation of the people they deal with in the course of living, whether those people can be assumed to be of good will or not.Whether in the world of the church or outside it the movement to get in the face of the general public on these issues has resulted in the church world stumbling sometimes toward welcome, nevertheless compelled to choose between affirmation or denial. At one time Christians would rely on 'love the sinner not the sin'. Add to that the reason why some Christians will not drink alcohol; they don't want to lead others into temptation. To bring an end to this post: is everybody going to come out of the closet? Are all sinful natures going to confess their sins? Or are Christians going to find their gift in the church and put it to use and save their confessions for an appropriate outlet? Perhaps if a congregant finds a sinner in the midst he should confront him, accompanied by another; or take it to the leadership. Anyone with a question should be able to inquire of his spiritual leader. The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it? So, maybe better not to wear it on the sleeve.

  2. Cogent, coherent, and the best articulation of the Christian position for this topic I have found yet. Thank you for posting this for our organizations' review and consideration. We must all be so well versed on the topic and act more faithfully to love as you admonish and deeply care for everyone struggling in their various areas of brokenness.

  3. Homosexuality – like heterosexuality and bisexuality – is a state, condition or orientation. As such, they are morally neutral. The words homosexuality, heterosexuality and bisexuality never appear in the Bible because they were coined in 1892 by Charles Gilbert Chaddock in a translation of Richard von Krafft-Ebing's study on sexual practices.
    And this is the point: Even if one agrees that the Biblical descriptions of carnality do in fact correlate to our present-day understanding through the use of those terms, nowhere in the Bible is homosexuality itself condemned – only its practice. Nowhere in the Bible is heterosexuality itself condemned – only its practice outside of Biblical marriage.
    Failure to distinguish clearly between the state of homosexuality and its acts is sloppy thinking at best and homophobic at worst.

  4. So let me get this right! God is going to send people to eternal punishment for eternity! That is for ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever. Because they are gay! Because if we are saying that they are not allowed to because it's sinful , so they are not allowed to have any human intimacy for all their lives! and if they do they are going to hell! Well I'm not sure if I want to believe in a God who is like that! I mean some are clearly different when they are young ! Not like the other boys not playing football etc! And you can see that they are going to be gay! So God created them even though they didn't ask to be created! And then they are going to eternal punishment! Wow that's great news! What a lovely God!

  5. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NLT
    Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, [10] or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people-none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.

  6. Two concerns….first, the word "Gay" is only used once in Scripture and it is describing a type of clothing, and second, in Romans Chapter one, we see that those who are practicing these wicked sexual acts are doing so because they did not want to retain God in their knowledge, therefore God gave them over to a reprobate mind. So you are right, they didn't "choose to be gay" but rather once they are given over by God, their animal instincts come alive with the resultant deviant activity. Your thoughts?

  7. Just blessed I don't struggle with this kind of insecurity! I just am myself. I have my own insecurities however I am able to face it when I need to. I am just glad I don't feel overwhelmed about my sexuality that I make an identity out of it and beat myself up cause of what society thinks of me. Society can go screw itself

  8. Thank you for the sharing. Recently turns of events God graciously save me from suicide and brought me out of depression because of my problems with my bf. We broke up eventually. God made me reconsider my faith again and I have been listening and reflecting on my lifestyle decision and biblical truth. It's really a hard truth on what it means to deny self and carry our cross. I really hope moving forward, I can please God and honour God with my life.
