    Jesus Loves Me, This I Know!

    For the first 33 years of my life I was into guys.Then I met a woman that I was friends with for a few years and fell in love with her and her with me. We were both married to guys, but both marriages were not good. Because of our faith we both struggled and tried to stay away...

    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?

    It's Not The Love That Is Wrong, It's The Sex!

    It is not the love that is wrong, it’s the Sex! This is what the pastor and first lady said to us as I was sitting beside the woman I've loved since I was 16. We had spent four of the most pleasing months helping them establish a church, hosting events to raise money for said...

    Its quite confusing. Its hard to explain

    and I loose a lot of friends because of both things. My christian friends tend to turn their noses up at me when they find out I'm a lesbian and my LBGTQ friends get upset when they find out I am part of a religion that often does not support their efforts. Meanwhile I am just...

    A Test From God?

    I’m a heterosexual female, I plan to stay a virgin until I marry and I strongly believe in being like “Christ”. I wish I could say that was completely true because I wouldn’t feel as if the worst child of God ever. I grew up in a Christian family and God is a huge part...

    Science, God, And Me

    I am a homosexual. I am also a Christian. Here's why I think that it is possible for a person to be both: God made us in his image. God made human beings with brains and complex nervous systems. The brain is responsible for the production of hormones, which are responsible for...

    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 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...

    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...
