I Am a Lesbian and a Christian

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 673 People

    I know there is intersex,

    male and females but in terms of sexuality our biological genitals are suppose to dictate what/who is acceptable to love. I just don't understand why can't we love people for their personality and who they are inside instead of what genital parts they are born with?

    When I Say... "i Am A Christian"...

    It means I am sinful. I am doubtful. My spirit gets weak. I am stubborn. I get lazy. I question His plans. I insist what I want. I get mad, super mad that I sometimes make curses in my head. There are also times that I find it hard to concentrate when I'm on the church. My list...

    I've been Lutheran for

    I just moved to a very small town.

    I'm terrified that I won't be able to find community in Christ, or my sexuality, let alone together. I was always so comfortable with who I was, but I feel like here, there are so many different factors I don't know very much about. I'm sure God wants me to be here, but I feel...

    for a song as I can remember and I have been a Lesbian for as long as I can remember. The two don't conflict in my mind. There is no scripture that says same-sex attraction is a sin. scripture does tell us that homosexual acts are sin but actions and sexualities are two...

    When I moved to Texas from a very liberal suburb of Washington D.C. I thought my life was over. I was coming into my sexuality. I was confused and hurt by what the people around me were saying. They said gay people were disgusting and that they would go to hell. I met my first...

    I'm a lesbian who's on my church's worship team.

    I play guitar for the church and I had to quit for a while because I know that I'm lying to my church about who I am, but it's not safe for me to come out. My pastor has a very strict no gay policy within my church, and my mom is the same way. I stopped playing for two months...

    A Choice?

    A careful reading of 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 reveals that certain Christians in the ancient city of Corinth (infamous for its debauchery) were able to abandon their homosexual lifestyles. How was that possible?

    Finally Found Where I Belong

    I've always known that I was lesbian from a very young age because all the crushes I had were on women.  However, for years I felt ashamed and sickened with myself.  I thought I would die with embarrassment if anybody found out my secret.  I had my first girlfriend when I...

    I babysit for a lot of families at my church.

    I'm not out to most of them because it never comes up and isn't relevant to babysitting. My church had a meeting recently to vote on if we were in support of letting our regional affiliate churches have lgbtq pastors. A woman I babysit for stood up and said she was against gay...

    No One Was Created A Lesbian By God.

    A child of God should not choose to be both a Christian and a lesbian at the same time. I would like to share my testimony. I was brought up in a family where my parents provided me all my material needs. As I was growing up, I noticed that I had an attraction towards the same...

    I'm A Lesbian, I Love My Lord And Saviour, And Mankind Will Not Take That Away From Me

    If you grow up Christian, and you grow up lesbian, it's almost a given that you will grow up cut in half. You will be a "good girl", a rule follower. You will go to Sunday school, and you will listen to the teachings there. You will learn about God's unconditional love which...
