Welcome to visitors and potential members alike

I have lived all of my life trying to hide my homosexuality. That's because I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and always felt that others would reject a homosexual who did that, especially if he did not "magically" turn into a raving heterosexual when he accepted Jesus into his life. But now I am at the point where God has told me that as long as I am "in the closet" with friends and acquaintances, that I will be of little use to Him. That is because He has called me to witness to others that it IS possible to be homosexual and yet live a life pleasing to Jesus Christ. But don't be fooled! It is not really very easy to do. The easy thing is to "embrace and celebrate" my homosexuality and life that lifestyle to its fullest, and who cares what Jesus thinks about it. But I know that for me it would be wrong, and have always known that.

What's different now is that God is calling me to encourage other homosexuals who are struggling with reconciling their sexual orientation with their desire to serve Jesus to tell them that it is possible, but it will mean a life that is far less "fun" than if we all lived "according to our flesh."

I have a lot more to say about this, but time does not permit me to put it all down at once. But if you have an interest in this topic, stay tuned. Perhaps there may be some healing or spiritual renewal done through this community.

By the way, as mentioned in the info on this community, "gay bashing" will not be tolerated. It is offensive, and never leads one to Christ. It is ineffective as a witnessing tool, and only serves to drive away the very fellow homosexuals that we would like to minister to. Why would anyone ever want to give his or her life to Christ if Christ's representatives on this earth are full of hatred and condemnation? Speaking for myself and this community, Jesus did not put me here to condemn, but to love and minister to others.
