Gay Christian – An Oxymoron?
avatar

“How can one be gay and call oneself a Christian?” These words bring back memories of the time when I thought that “gay Christian” was an oxymoron. Since then I, a conservative Christian who believes that sexual activity was designed by God as a special bond and procreative act within heterosexual marriage, have gained some … Continue reading –>

Are you gay?

As a Christian, how do you answer that question? Being same-sex attracted, Tim felt that he was “gay.” So when Andrew asked him, “Are you gay,” he got that deer-caught-in-the-headlights look, which was a give-away even without the “yes” that followed.

His Take: The Bible really does condemn homosexuality

Do we know what abomination really means? Let’s see if the rest of the Bible sheds light on the … Continue reading –>

Did God Make Me Gay?

“God made me gay” is a common justification for engaging in gay sex.  After all, if God didn’t approve of gay sex, “it would be like creating a bird with wings and telling it not to fly.”  It’s a variation of the “The devil made me do it” argument.  Both arguments assume that we cannot … Continue reading –>
