Part of what made my journey out of the LGBT life even more miserable was the confusion about God’s Word because of “Christian” liberal theologians who were twisting God’s Word and insisting that God made us gay, that God’s Word affirms homosexuality, that we are under “grace”, not the “law”, etc. It cost me about three more years of my life before finding healing and peace of mind.
In my book, FROM QUEER TO CHRIST, I detail the “talking points” of these pastors, even the LGBT activists, and debunk them.
To the LGBT individuals who are listening to this false theology, we know God is not the author of confusion. God’s Word is clear that SATAN is the father of lies and the truth is not in him. (John 8:44) If homosexuality is ok in God’s eyes, and society and liberal pastors are telling us it’s ok, then why is GOD delivering people OUT of that life? SOMEONE IS LYING and IT’S NOT GOD!
Those well-meaning pastors/teachers are doing the right thing by making sure LGBT individuals have a safe place to worship God, for no one should be mistreated or bullied, but just as there is God’s grace, there is also God’s judgment. The pastors conveniently leave that out.
Grace doesn’t give us the right to trample on it. Grace is there when we “fail” in various areas of our life. God extends His grace and offers forgiveness that is available because of what Jesus did when He shed his PRECIOUS BLOOD on that Cross! Grace does not give me the right to do as I please without repercussions. If so, I would have remained in that life. I CHOSE, by my own free will, to TURN MY BACK ON THAT LIFE and follow my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Why did Jesus die? It was to save us from a place called HELL. Just as there is a LITERAL Heaven where God resides, Jesus shed His LITERAL blood to save us from a LITERAL Hell!
The pastors/teachers who push the LGBT agenda are not only enslaving you into a life of misery but into further rebellion against God. They’re going to answer to God for it. You are still responsible for your decision because you are an adult and God gives you free will. You will never know the real truth of God’s Word unless you study it for yourself.
If you fear reading God’s Word, let me encourage you with this thought. When a parent disciplines us for disobedience, it’s because they love us and they’re trying to teach us responsibility and to know right from wrong. It’s the same with God. He’s our HEAVENLY father who wants the best for us.
When I got the chip off my shoulder and read God’s Word with that in mind, I saw that God was never out to “get us.” His instructions were to help us! When He became angry it was because His children were being rebellious and not obeying Him. God is no different than a father or mother who reacts the same way. HE LOVES YOU! He wants the best for you but we MUST come to Him HIS WAY, that’s through Jesus (!), obey Him and do our best to lead a life that is pleasing to HIM. We cannot live as we please and then expect Him to still bless us. A parent doesn’t reward us for disobedience. It doesn’t work that way.
Yes, there is a cost to following Christ because we have to deny ourselves of certain pleasures that God finds detestable, like sex outside of marriage, pornography, drugs/alcohol, idolatry, murder, witchcraft, disobedience, rebellion, hatred, etc. If you’re miserable and you’ve tried everything else, please give your life to Christ and study God’s Word for yourself. Ask God to give you discernment and wisdom for He delights in helping those who approach Him with a humble heart and a true desire to know Him and the truth.
There are NOT many paths to God. There are many “gods” but the ONLY path to the LIVING GOD is through Jesus Christ! He was made “sin” for us so we could have a relationship with His father and have eternal life. (John 3:16)
You don’t have to be a heterosexual. Some transition into that life while others, who still have a same-sex attraction, have chosen a path of celibacy. I’ve been on the road of celibacy over 10 years now and God has filled the void and loneliness in other ways. After 25 years in the miserable LGBT life, it’s wonderful to finally have peace with myself, my peace of mind and, most of all, peace with God!
