Yes I Am Gay, and Yes I Am Saved
I wanted to compose my thoughts before rushing out and posting here, because claiming to be a gay Christian is a very touchy subject for some people. I'll try to keep it as short as I can.
I know what the Bible says about homosexuality. I know it's wrong, so does my fiance. It's an uncomfortable, hurtful, confusing and torturous position we're both in, because we are in love and will always be in love and never turn away from our homosexuality. It's just not going to happen. Am I prepared to pay the price for that? Absolutely. Because I can't help who I fall in love with anymore than the next person.
I don't think it's fair to claim that I can't be a homosexual and be saved. God made it eternally clear that there is no sin that can separate us from heaven except the rejection of Jesus Christ. All of us fall short of the glory of God. No one is good enough to enter heaven because of who they are and what they do. And all sin is sin in God's eyes, my homosexuality isn't any worse than your murdering/stealing ect.
Jesus died for my sins. He didn't die for everyone's sins except homosexuals, and to suggest that homosexuality is the one sin that will remain punishable is to deny God's power.
I'm not an informational convert. I didn't just agree to being saved and was saved, I've felt God and his presence, and know what it feels like to feel the Holy Spirit. That is my testimony. I have felt God, and that is the primary reason why I know He is real and alive. No one who is saved can explain that sudden rush of understanding, that feeling of total consciousness that God is there. It's like feeling God's personality.
And you know what? I've heard God say He loves me. You can call me crazy, but there was a time I was so emotionally destroyed that I prayed, "God, just once, tell me you love me."
And I heard Him tell me He loved me for a whole minute. I knew it was God, you want to know why? Because He always goes the extra mile for his children, and He knew I didn't need to hear it once, but a hundred times.
