Alive // Hillsong Young & Free

In the midst of the darkest night
Let Your love be the shining light
Breaking chains that were holding me
You sent Your Son down to set me free
Everything of this world will fade
I’m pressing on till i see Your face
I will live that Your will be done
I won’t stop till Your kingdom come.

I’m certain that God is much more concerned with the destruction of God’s creation, the exploitation of the poor, or the greed of those who already have more than enough rather than the gender of the person one loves or one’s own gender identity or expression thereof.

I was twelve years old when I came out.

True story: 

I was told (by a priest) that I didn’t have a choice to be gay or straight; I was gay and I had a choice to be authentic about who I am or hide it, and that God was really proud of the choice I had made.

That’s literally how it should be for everyone, because that’s how God actually feels, I think.

And this, friends, is the proper Christian response to coming out. I am so glad that you had this support.

I think God is a little too busy to worry about which people like each other Spencer Carlin (South Of Nowhere)

I love this saying. If you can show people that being gay is hard, and that you have overcome these difficulties, you can show your sexuality as a strength. You are different than the norm and that is something to be celebrated. No one can insult you because you are you. You are who you are supposed to be.

Anonymous said: My coming out was awful. I got nasty messages from people at my old church, the minister gave an ex-gay sermon, and people tried to recruit my younger brother into ‘fixing’ me. I’ve since left that church. My sister wants me to join another one, but the people there seem very judgemental about gay rights, so I said no. My sister says I’m being too sensitive and should get over it. I just don’t want to go through that again. Is she right? Or is it okay to be too scared to attend?

Those people at your last church are not being examples of Christ to you. If Jesus walked the earth today He would see you, greet you and embrace you. He would not hate you, preach against you, or try to “heal” you. But do not be bitter towards those people because most likely, they are just ignorant about scripture. They are destroyed by the traditions of the past and it fills them with ideas that are not holy and are hateful. 

There is something you may have to understand. There is a difference between supporting gay rights, and loving a gay person as your neighbor. In a church setting, you should seek a church that loves you as you are. They may not support marriage equality, but as long as they love you whether or not they agree with your lifestyle does not matter. It is helpful if they do agree, of course. There is a lot more to finding a church than being at one that accepts you. You want to feel at home at a church. You want to be comfortable worshiping there and growing there. 

You are not being too sensitive but you really ought to think about what makes a church good for you. Is it that they support marriage equality, or is it that the church suits your spiritual needs and loves you? 

It is okay to be scared. Pray about it. God has the ability to cease your anxiety. If you pray about finding a church home, God will deliver.

Anonymous said: I need some advice. I was supposed to be president for my Christian fellowship group on campus but because I'm a lesbian they said it would hurt the reputation of the group. I understand why they might think that but it still hurts. Some of my friends who are in student government want to keep the club from getting money next year because of it but I don't know if I should let that happen.

Sorry for taking so long to reply. This is a sticky situation. If I were in the christian fellowship group, I would hope that these people would put aside the reputation if they thought that you would be best suited as president of the group. However, it is not an offensive gesture towards you. Gay christians know how the outside world sees us even if the church doesn’t see us that way. 

The friends who are in student government are not friends at all. You should not allow them to take money from the club unless they have justifiable reasons for it. In fact, I am almost positive that they would not be allowed to take money away from the club due to the sexual orientation of its members or president. That is wrong. It is hard sometimes and sometimes we get hate but we must always stand for what we believe in and take action towards equality. 

Do not let your orientation become a weakness. Make it your strength. 

Best wishes,

-Marisa
