My writing will always be a mix of profound statements interspersed with what’s best described as mental diarrhea. Truthfully, I’m not looking for anyone’s approval. If what I say helps someone feel less crazy, mission accomplished. I just needed a place to process my mental baggage, to distinguish between thoughts: good, useless and W.T.H. . Let me be brutally honest. I have been a Christian since I was 10. I also remember being attracted to other guys as early as 6. Christianity and Homosexuality, the oil and water of the spiritual realm. After many years of trying to homogenize the two in my life, I discovered the truth when I turned 27. At 27 I submitted control of my life to Jesus Christ. Jesus helped me walk away from homosexuality and the many facets of sexual brokenness that had a death grip on my life. Homosexuality isn’t genetic. When we say it is, we absolve ourselves of the responsibility of correcting our own mistakes and righting the wrongs done to us in our past.
Sorry Gaga, No one was “born that way”. Jesus Christ offers redemption from all homosexuality. A deceptive belief in the gay community is that Jesus never spoke out against homosexuality. Never mind that Paul, who wrote most of the new testament, not only spoke against it, but also spoke of those who had been delivered from it. In Matthew 15, Jesus addressed sexual immorality. Matthew 15:18-20 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man ‘unclean.’ 19 out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. 20 These are what make a man ‘unclean’… When Jesus speaks of sexual immorality and adultery, he is covering all sexual relationships outside the union of a man and woman, which was God’s design from the beginning. I know many men and women who have turned away from sexual sin, gay and straight, and turned towards God. There is freedom from homosexuality. We are living proof. There are many in the gay agenda that would have people believe that you can’t change your sexual orientation. That’s precisely why I went with the title “Unicorns, Aliens and Bigfoot”. It appears that ex gay men and women have been relegated to the realm of myth. I am here as proof positive that not only do we exist, but we are not going away any time soon. To coin a phrase, “We’re here. We USED to be Queer. Get used to it!” Ex gays are as much a part of the gay community as any LGBTer out there. In fact, I think some new initials are in order. How about LGBTR, with the R standing for Redeemed of course. This is not a message of exclusion or a message to spark debate. If you are trapped in a gay identified life, there is hope. Jesus Christ is that hope. If you are instead celebrating gay and all it’s many facets, we’ll have to agree to disagree, but not debate. I would only ask that in the light of the great religion of “Tolerance” that you allow those of us who don’t see a future in homosexuality to make a choice to walk away as you decide to live it out. May Jesus watch over us all.
