I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

I was reading THEOLOGY NOW BLOG the other day and while reading this entry, the idea to write today’s entry hit me. Like he said, Many Christians are in the "hate the sin, love the sinner" camp when it comes to homosexuality. They follow a bible that says, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” (Leviticus 20:13). Though the bible also lists several other 'sins' punishable by death, they seem fixated on that one. Now the interesting thing for me is MANY of us gay men AND women share their feelings…you LOVE being gay, but HATE that you are? 

Many of us try to find some middle ground by lending their time, talents, and financial support to churches that place us in such a moral position. Without us, many churches would be but a mere shadow of themselves. How is it that we have allowed them to do this to us? How did we become good enough to do God’s work, but NOT good enough to go to heaven? I say we allowed them to make us feel this way because we feel like they’ve given us a choice when they REALLY haven’t.  

We’ve been HATED for SO long that THE VERY LIVES we live only gives us misery AND despair. Those of us who are wondering in the dark can’t help but see ourselves as two things: A SINNER & A HOMOSEXUAL. We have yet come to understand that the place we should seek comfort is in ourselves first AND foremost. So for homosexual men AND women who have yet to REALLY know who they are, can you tell me where you stand? ARE YOU A SINNER THAT’S HOMOSEXUAL or A HOMOSEXUAL THAT SINS? I don’t see a middle ground for you as long as you ONLY give yourselves the options THEY handed down to you…
