    Gay And Chistian?

    Many people here claim to be both gay and Christian. I'll give you folks some things to ponder on: 1) What is "love"? I have read so many posts practically saying that it is okay to engage in homosexual lust and acts so far as it is based on "love", because God is love. The...

    Well, To Be Honest, I'm Bisexual, But There Wasn't A Group For That.

    I know I was born bisexual, but I did not become a Christian until I was in 1st or 2nd grade. I wish all Christians could understand that God just loves. God does not hate, and he certainly does not hate people for the way they are born. Any love is beautiful love.

    Here's My Viewpoint, For Better Or Worse

    I've heard of people coming to the "conclusion" that in order to be themselves (homosexual) they have to give up God entirely or else live in guilt. I think that's the result of religious brain-washing, but then again I've been lucky enough to have a more "open mind" of religion...

    Hey everyone out there.

    Throughout the past I've been both afraid to come out of the closet as a gay and show full love and devotion to God. Honestly I can't fight the feeling of loving guys, and I want to love God because he's gotten me through a lot of rough times. I'm going to make this work because...

    Struggling With Being Gay

    I'm 17 years old. Ever since I can remember I've been attracted to men. Never once have I been turned on by a woman. I grew up in (and still live in) a very conservative christian home. I was taught that being gay was a sin and "unnatural". My family loves me very much though and...

    I Hate It When..

    When people say, "It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve."First of all, it'd be pretty stupid of God to create the first two humans if they couldn't reproduce. He'd be like, "Damn, I should've thought that one through.."And don't forget that Eve sorta.. doomed humanity.. Steve...

    Feeling Bad?

    Even when you feel ugly or depressed or guilty or ashamed, there is an inner spark in you which is light. This light is your beauty. This light is your reflection of God. You are a child of God, thus you are beautiful.

    The Kingdom Of Heaven Is Within.
