“Help! I’m a Gay Christian”
10 Reasons God Loves Gay Christians | Time
Everyone at Living Out has a story to tell of God's wonderful love and the impact that following Jesus has on our lives. Listen to same-sex attracted Christians tell their different stories of enjoying their new identity in Christ. What does God really say about sex and sexuality? Is what we assume the real story? Does following the biblical teaching on sexuality cause us harm or is the Christian sexual ethic actually life-giving and healthy? Is it possible to live as a same-sex attracted Christian without compromising biblical teaching on sex and marriage? Is God being unfair in asking same-sex attracted people to give up having sex?
How Christian Parents Should Respond to Their Child's Gay Identity Crisis
Many gay men and lesbians claim that the Christian faith is the guiding rule of their lives. Some of them hold that their sexual orientation is given by God, that it is good, and that there is nothing wrong or sinful with their homosexual activities. These persons say that the Bible and Church Tradition do not condemn homosexual behaviour, but have been misinterpreted and misused, sometimes unknowingly and other times quite willfully, by prejudiced and hostile people who hate homosexuals. Those who believe in this way obviously want others to agree with them, and many are now working hard to have their views accepted, particularly by fellow Christians and Church leaders.
Some Christian denominations do not consider homosexuality or transgender identity to be sins. These include entire religious denominations , as well as individual churches and congregations. Additionally, some denominations which are not LGBT-affirming have member-organized groups which are not officially sanctioned by the denomination. There are also ecumenical or para-church programmes that are explicitly outreaches to LGBT people, but do not identify with any particular faith tradition or denomination. Today some Christian denominations are accepting of homosexuality and transgender identity and inclusive of homosexual and transgender people, such as the United Church of Christ and the Metropolitan Community Church.
