Live chat with a Christian who cares
We get asked many questions by people who are wondering about homosexuality and God, or who are struggling to come to terms with how they are feeling about people of the same sex and asking does God still loves me? We speak to people who are happy with who they are and those who wish they were something different. Whatever your sexuality we are very happy to chat with you and help you to see and understand what God actually does say in the Bible about you – we think you will be surprised by what we explain. We are happy to talk with you about your feelings, your struggles and your questions.
We are all more than just a physical body, we also have feelings, emotions and a spiritual side to us. We really need to think about the whole of us and not just our physical bodies. Here are some thoughts on homosexuality that people have found helpful…
Who do you trust?
A big question for us all is who do we trust? When there is a difference of opinion do you think people should rely on their feelings to decide what is right and wrong? Do you think that every feeling we have is always okay? Or are some feelings not meant to be acted upon? If like us you think that sometimes feelings can trick us about what is really true and that some feelings we have should not be acted upon – then the question has to be – how do we decide what feelings are okay to act upon and which aren’t. What about feelings of homosexuality?
Think about the spiritual you
Do you believe there is a God? God is much more interested in you as a person than in your sexuality. Have you ever spent time trying to learn about who Jesus is, what he did and why he did it?
When people believe that Jesus loves them and is interested in them it gives them a bigger picture of the world around them and of what life is all about. It can give you a new hope and a new focus outside of yourself. The more you get to know Jesus the more you will want to please Him – Find out about Jesus.
Is God against homosexuality ?
Some people think that God hates gay people – but that isn’t true! Do you think God hates heterosexual people who aren’t married but have sex together? The Bible says that any sex between a man and a woman who are not married to each other is a sin – so this covers many different situations and people, not just homosexuality. God doesn’t hate people he cares for them and cares about them – he wants them to find his peace and his acceptance and forgiveness. He wants them to know Him.
Life is about more than sex
Our culture makes out that sex is what life is all about, but that is a lie – life is about so much more than sex. There are many people that go through life without sex as their focus. In fact sex is one of the biggest causes of issues and problems in a relationship! A life that is fulfilled and meaningful can be had without sex but our culture likes to hide this truth.
Same sex attraction is not a sin
There are many people who follow Jesus and the teachings of the Bible and who experience attraction to people of the same sex as them. The Bible never said that experiencing same sex attraction is a sin, it also doesn’t say that feeling attracted to someone else’s wife (or husband) is a sin. The big question is what do we do with this feeling of attraction – do we treat it like a temptation and say no to it – or do we choose to think about it, imagine what could happen or act upon it. It is when we choose to imagine it or act upon it that it becomes a sin – and this is true whether if are heterosexual or considering homosexuality.
