My gay christian buddy and i took in a guy cause he was going to be homeless

we have known BRUCE and became very close to him for about a year

worked with him in community services ( my buddy and i are the cooks that cook for the disadvantaged  and pass out groceries at our church - many in our church make this happen every week)

and Bible study and prayer at a mutual christian home every week

he moved up here from the bay area

we are in the forest mountains at the snow line

no one in church offered so we stepped in out of love for him and the desperation that came to a head

(the church has alot of old peeps with big old homes- cause children left long ago ect, but the conditions of Bruce parole are too restricting -no guns or booze or drugs ect - they will search the whole house- cause of the nature of his felony crime)

this is going to be a temp situation till he gets on his feet

God has worked mighty miracles on his behalf and we cant wait to see what GOD will do

BRUCE is a new christian (year and a half)

and gotten into alot of trouble that made him turn to JESUS on his knees in  deep repentance

amen

the funny thing about this situation is that BRUCE is gay and the church has no clue

they think he is some straight redneck cowboy

BRUCE has heard  what christians say about homosexuals and know not to come out

its so unsafe to be who you really are in most churches

(that goes for straights too)

Now we have three gay guys living together in the mountains that go to the local SDA Church

what are the odds

(btw they know my gay christian buddy and i are gay)

pray that he will find a place on his own soon

he is still going thru the legal mess and the parole people have very strict rules that he has to adhere to

#MERRY MOUNTAIN MEN OF WINDSOR

:)  using this opportunity to share more of GOD's  love and wonderful design/power


i will share a spiritual law GOD has revealed a long time ago to me that may be lost on so many esp. the ones who are earnest with all these supposes and comparing their walk and how it looks to others...


getting to know the christian gay man at church all these months -me and my christian gay buddy formed a bond with him.
a brotherhood. a spiritual connection. A family of God thing with Jesus as our mutual foundation.


there is no danger of a seduction going on between us gay men anymore than there is a seduction going on between two brothers or family members.

Can it happen? yes but not likely. just think of your own siblings, people!
thankyou for your own visuals


hope it helps understanding this SPIRITUAL LAW!
God created all men who are in Jesus to relate to each other as brothers.
period!


My  gay christian buddy and i were lovers a long long time ago in a place far far away but thru Jesus has become brothers in Christ. that means.... uhhh no sex or tickling allowed.

(or slow deep kisses)


it has taken too many years to finally take-  u know the Sancification process u all here have a part in (uhhh...maybe/hopefully)


it has become a law engraved in our hearts by the HOLY SPIRIT
we have no history of  sexual stuff with the church member so it wasnt a battle

HELLO!
the gay community has knowledge of this in its own way called SISTEEERHOOD. Sisteeers dont sleep with sisteeers! has there been exceptions? o yes    ! but not common.

#inspired

maybe one day i will wax long and arduous on how GOD's Will can be accomplished thru monogamous very  long term gay relationships in a later thread

 the same principle of becoming brothers enacts the same way :)

God is the great designer that gets HIS WAY!

God bless your ministry MFG....its kindness as you provide from GOD that makes the world a better place....

Mt 25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick (/gay), and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Shalom

Let's not be naive, there are no gay christians. There are Christians who may live in sin. Some choose to eat pork, others...

No gay christians.

No christian prostitutes.

No christian rock music.

No christian drug parties.

No christian abortion.

Just sin.

#its not sin to be gay

That's not what Jesus said.

1 Cor 6:9 Know all of you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?  Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionists, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but all of you are washed, but all of you are sanctified, but all of you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 

You are right. This is wrong. Gay christians are liars

I am confused.  When you say all three of you are gay, are you actively participating in homosexual acts?  Or are you saying all three of you are happy?

I am trying to get the gist of this thing.  If I said, my wife and I, (who are straight), brought in a homeless woman (who is also straight) to live with us, and all us are straight together, it might make someone ask a similar question I suppose.

Now, I suppose if I said my wife and I invited a homeless Christian woman felon to live with us until she got on her feet, there would probably be less questions.

You might understand the general confusion.  I am simply looking for clarification.

I guess it is fair to say that our propensities once they have germinated in our cognitive minds and become our pet sinning habits, that removing them through the power of the Holy Spirit takes time....I have yet to meet anybody once saved by Jesus who has all propensities removed during baptism....that would be nice though....

SO if the person sins, that would be a sin-offering not unto death, because Jesus is able to cover over our sinning of propensities until in co-operation all wilful sinning and ignorant sinning is removed...This is a time relationship process....between God and the Believer....

I once took a baptised friend to church many times and befriended him...other SDA people would not go near him because of his alcohol on his breath...he was still SDA and still alcoholic....

How many of us are still sex addicts and still SDA and still trying to remove our pet sins of porn, or self abuse ? Or maybe we don't want them removed ? Once we trample upon the Holy Spirit, there is no sacrifice for sin-offerings left but only a fearful judgement of Jesus....Heb 10...

The Bible tells us to confess our faults one to another...my friend was an alcoholic, but I was always a friend to Him....sinning and all....if we concentrated on the Saviour more our love would not notice the multitude of sin-offerings in the other person....

Hope this helps

Shalom

I don't know if that is the situation or not.  Which is why I asked the OP for clarification.  Only he knows the details of his story.  I do not, and neither do you.  The language was confusing.  The choices of emphasis were a bit baffling, perhaps a problem with the written word and not the spoken word.  So, I will wait to see if he chooses to clarify to help my understanding.

I wonder if my wife and church would be OK with me having a sleep over at my ex's house if my car broke down.  Little bit of a double standard for gay sleep overs and straight sleep overs. 

Confused ? try this....

Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Does paraptoma mean faults or sins ?It can't have both meanings depending upon Bible context....

Shalom

Not confused.  1 thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.  I avoid being alone with unrelated women out of respect for my wife and my church. I do believe MFG when he says they live celibate.  I am just saying I would not be judged the same way. 

 thank you Rob very much for saying GBU

and articulating so eloquently the process of sanctification  

in a believer and the body of Christ rallying behind that

 Heisenberg i guess if we start supposing we can suppose anything

i am not supposing anything just telling what is going on

i will clarify things for you

when someone says they are gay

it doesn’t mean they are having gay sex shaking their fist at God

when someone says they are straight it doesn’t mean they are fornicating on the spot

and i could be gay and happy at the same time

it doesn’t have to be either nor or

i hope that clarifies things for you

#its not sin to be gay

I don't want to steal your thread MFG, but there are many who do not understand what a sinner does while in Jesus during the transition from missing to being without guile.

Here is a sermon made controversial called the Saved Smoker.... http://spiritualsprings.org/ss-1026.htm  

It uses Bible text and Science object lessons to verify a truth we ignore and judge others harshly....

Shalom

i must say its weird for christians who struggle with their own hurts, hangups, habits that do not glorify GOD

and miss the mark with words, deeds, and thoughts dont understad in their own souls/theology/discourse others are also christians who also strugggle

its like they have no idea about their own condition and dont uderstand the process of the walk with their GOD

uhhhh..... like they dont walk with GOD!

just cough up  ideas/rules/dogma without substance or experience or conversion
