saying I am a 'Gay Christian' is a small part of my testimony.. To share JESUS and what HE is doing for me!

Perhaps those who identify themselves as "gay christians" are doing just that... using it for a testimony. I have not seen any "gay christians" advocating homosexual sex or adultery. Have you?

I personally (along with a large portion of the men on this board, whether they admit it or not) have viewes copious quatities of pornography. By the grace of our Savior, Yahshua the Messiah, He has overcome this sin in my life. I asked for cleanliness on the outside (ie no masturbating or viewing porn) and, when I followed Him, He gave me cleanliness on the inside. Hallelujah my mind was/is free. Does our adversary still tempt me in this area? Of course! Do I fall? No... because I am connecter to the One who can keep me from falling and present me faultless before the Father. I now know what overcoming is like. Do you? I still have other sin to overcome. Do you? I am still a sinner saved by grace. Are you?

I am a sexually devious sinner saved by grace. Are you?

I am not a homosexual saved by grace... but than again... they fit in the same category as me listed immediately above. Do you think that when you meet a brother who struggled with homosexuallity in heaven he will "keep it in the closet" up there because who knows why... I'm at a loss for reasons fill in the ___________? Of course not. Brother MFG will stand up and cry aloud "Though I was lost in homosexual sin I am found!" And I will stand next to him tears streaming down my face and cry aloud, "Though I was lost in sexual sin I am found!" And we will both fall at the feet of OUR Savior and thank Him and Praise Him. Will you? (I need a minute -- I already have tears streaming down my face)

My Bible says in James that if you break one law you have broken them all. So in effect we all have broken the laws that state that homosexual acts are sinful. Have you sinned?

Indeed we all have a sinful (carnal) nature... Have you lost yours? I need a Savior every day to lose mine. I rely on Him. Do you?

I bet MFG relies on Him too. Maybe you should ask him. I know that if I separate from my Savior I will eventually sleep with some other woman. How about you?

If MFG separates from His Savior...

Come on! Can you not see that sin is sin is sin is sin!!!!!!!

MFG is not walking around everyday looking at every man lusting after them. It just is the temptation that OUR and I mean OUR adversary put on him. Is he not your adversary?

Stop making people YOUR adversary... OUR Savior did no such thing. Are we not supposed to emulate Him?

Did he say to the woman caught in adultery. Unless you change your nature you cannot be saved? Or did He say "Go and Sin No More"?

I want no part in sexual immorality just as much as MFG wants no part in his sexual immorality. WE both realize that there is a Savior in OUR hearts that is MIGHTY to SAVE. He can SAVE to the uttermost... will He completely block off the adversary from us?

Has he cut of Satan from you?

Are you no longer tempted to sin?

Have you shared your area of sin and how our Savior is powerfully bringing you through and out of it?

Until you open up and are as vulnerable as MFG I think you have no stones to throw?

In fact, unless you open up and are as vulnerable as MFG you will not obtain victory over sin.

Confess your faults one to another and be healed...

Shalom,

Will

 u know how hard the fight is and how important it is to reach out to a fellow sinner who struggles!

 EGW calls us to be a transparent christian!

it is at great risk!

gives more accusations to hurl from accusers

it is a constant thing to bring into captivity every thought to the obediance of Christ

every judgemental thought toward others as well as lust toward others

we as sinners go that way naturally

Thanku for testifying so i dont feel alone in a room full of male christians

i want to say again..

u know how hard the fight is!

u identify with my fight (rightly.. so though in a different venue)

to Surrender!

i wish more men would understand that! and express that thought instead of the status quo

when they do they will share what u share

and what i shared

albeit in other threads- GOD SAVED ME! 

God bless u!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and where on earth did u get deep understandings on this?

it is not common

i cant emphasize enough how this is how men are to be who have conquered sexual ( or still struggling) sin to each other with Christ as the foundation

anything less is an embarrassment to fellowship

The Body of Christ

Thanks MFG,

I was bigotted and hateful towards homosexuals in my younger years. I was scared of "them." Then I realized my deep need of a Savior in my own walk. It was then that I realized how dreadfully awful my sin was. I, along with Paul, claim to be the chief of sinners. Not as bragging but as a sinner saved by the infinite grace of Yahshua the Messiah. Now I realize that you and I can walk together. I am not afraid of you as I used to be. I seriously thought that "homos were predatory rapists." After meeting a few men, some of whom have children, who struggle with same sex attraction I have reallized that, like mary magdalene, those who have been forgiven much are that much more thankful for the forgiveness they receive.

All I can say is trust in Yahweh and lean not on your own understanding and He will lift you up, higher and higher.

I only hope that He will build in me the compassion he had/has for ALL the harlots, homos, adulterers, thieves and everyone else who is a sinner out there... Perhaps when that work is complete in me I will be safe to bring into the kingdom.

With agape love Shalom,

Will

amen amen

i covet your prayers
