Hi...?
By:
Post # 1

I'm close-minded and a Christian who is gay which is a big no in my religion and I don't want to believe that I'm going to hell after death. Today in church we talked about sins and how bad all this was and I came here to learn about gods and hopefully find mine.

Please be nice I'm new to all this and hope to learn more about all this. All I ask is if you guys can be nice and not judge me I know Christians are sometimes hated for being close minded in stuff but I hope to learn.

Welcome, Wabbit!

I have two pieces of information for you:

Firstly, whether being gay is acceptable is debated even among different denominations of Christianity, and sometimes from one congregation to the next. There are churches which are very open to gay members, and not in the sense of "join so we can change you."

Secondly, with the wide array of beliefs of forum members here, you may be surprised to find other Christians, and even people who follow the same God, but under a slightly different philosophy. If anyone starts getting on your case for your religious beliefs, their criticism will likely be met with resistance from people who believe in openness.

You have found a good community.

In the bible, there is a gay couple. I am Pan and as far as i know being LGQT+ has never sent anyone to hell. Its a choice not a belief. God undestands how different people feel about love

Love between men is celebrated in the Bible with the story of David and Jonathan. “Your love to me was wonderful, surpassing the love of women,” David said in his famous a lament for Jonathan. David’s feast day is Dec. 29.

Their story inspires LGBTQ people and affirms that same-sex couples are blessed by God. New and historical artists illustrate the same-sex love between Jonathan and David here.

The two men met when David was a ruddy young shepherd. Jonathan, a courageous warrior, had returned victorious from battle. Jonathan was the eldest son of Saul, Israel’s first king. David was taken to see King Saul right after beheading the Philistine giant Goliath. Scholars estimate that David was about 18 and Jonathan was at least 10 years older.

Jonathan fell in love at first sight of the handsome young hero. As the Bible says, “The soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David.” Their story gets more chapters in the Bible than any other human love story. There are no actual wedding ceremonies in the Bible, but the covenant between Jonathan and David is described in detail.

David, the second king of Israel, was an acclaimed warrior, musician and poet. He is credited with composing many of the psalms in the Bible. The gospel genealogies list David as an ancestor of Jesus.

The modern idea of sexual orientation didn’t exist in Biblical times, but the powerful love story of Jonathan and David in 1 and 2 Samuel suggests that same-sex couples are affirmed and blessed by God.
