Anonymous said: I'm curious as to why you are Christian given that the Bible has nothing but negative things to say about your sexual orientation, e.g. describing homosexual acts as an "abomination". I'm atheist by the way, just in case if u thought otherwise. Because I feel that your kinda disrespecting yourself dealing with something that says you ain't shit. I feel the same when it comes to women who are dealing with other religions, especially the Abrahamic ones.
I don’t recall reading that in the Bible.
The God that I serve loves everyone and doesn’t make provisions on said love based on the preference we are born with or who we give our love to.
John 4:8 distinctly says that God is love and if one doesn’t know it, they don’t know Him. It doesn’t say “God is love, except as it pertains to homosexual people.”
John 3:16 distinctly says that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son etc etc. It doesn’t say “God loved all of the world, except for gay people.”
Proverbs 8:17 distinctly says that God loves those who love Him & those who seek Me, find Me. It doesn’t say that God shows love to everyone but gay people and plays a mean game of “keep away” because of ones sexual preference.
Maybe I’m wrong in my interpretation (I’m still learning) but the common denominator here seems to be that God is love and that love is unwavering and nondiscriminatory, as we are all His children. I am a Christian because of that love, and no matter other’s interpretation of what His love is about or who it’s reserved for, I’ll continue to love and serve Him.
Hope that helps some. I appreciate you for (at least in MY opinion) asking the question respectfully. Enjoy your evening!
