One Christian gay guy’s thoughts and experiences along this whirlwind journey called life.
Brandon - I saw your comment on Jim's Moral Science Club blog, and was impressed. I'm a gay guy also, and wondering if you want to have a back-and-forth on homosexuality and faith.I really struggle to understand those who retain their Christian faith but know that they are gay. But my first motivation is always to understand that which I don't, so let me know if you're game. :)
Hey, Ryan. Sure.I'd say the reason I am able to retain my faith in Christ, knowing I am gay (meaning that I find other men attractive) is because I know, too, just how much Jesus has accomplished in my life. To turn away from Him, knowing how much He's done for me, would be ridiculous and foolish. I suppose I could pursue a relationship with another man and still retain that faith as others have done. But I think to do that, my conscience would destroy me. It's just that I know how much Jesus has done for me. To deliberately disobey the Word which He has given us just doesn't set well with me. It eats away at me whenever I do things I beleive are sinful. But all that aside, I don't believe Jesus faults me for being gay. I don't think that's anything of considerable concern to Him. What I do think He cares about is how well I attempt to resist temptations to act on homosexual feelings. And so that is my attempt. And I can cling to Christ to fight those temptations.Anyway, maybe that's enough of a start for now. What do you think?
