I’m so confused. My whole life I was told that homosexuality was sinful. That it was a choice. Asa teenage, I didn’t really care. People’s choices where theirs, not mine. But I’m 15 now and I have feelings for a girl.
I think Iam bisexual. I would hate to say im gay then have feelingfor a guy.
Starting from the beginning, a few months ago this girl I knew and I became friends. We started spending time together. I knew something was up with my emotions and freaked out. I convinced myself I liked this guy. I spent a few weeks away from her and the feelings went away. But now their back again. Stronger this time.
If I came out as anything but straight, my family would disown me. My mom would never look at me the same. My friends would probably cut contact with me. I would be living in sin. At least that’s what people say the bible says. It never applied to me so I never read into it. But now it does directly and I’m afraid that if I read it, it will just scare me more.
What do I do? Can and should I fight these feelings? Is homosexuality even really a sin? I’m really conflicted. Please help me.

Im going to tell you what I’ve been taught. That yes, homosexuality is a sin when acted upon. The thoughts themselves are not sin. I am bisexual with a tendency towards men (meaning I tend to be attracted to men over women, but I still will find myself attracted to certain girls) my sister is pansexual and may possibly have a girlfriend here soon, and my other sister is asexual.

Im sorry your family would disown you. That is definitely not Christian like. If you are at risk of those things (and its not just something you are scared of) I would suggest staying quiet. At least until you are dating a girl, if you ever do. That is my sisters tactic

I have no idea if it’s a sin or not.

You’re welcome for such brilliant advice 😉

Seriously though, it seems the Bible is clear that it is, but there have been other verses that seem clear on subjects but when probed into are shown to have meanings that were only pertinent to certain people at a certain time. (Such as verses on slavery and women speaking in church)

That being said, are you sure your feelings are sexual? We had a thread about a similar topic before–about loving our female friends. I for one tend to adore my friends, especially my female friends when I can relate to and understand them well. I absolutely feel love for them, I’m a very touchy-feely person so I love to hug and be close to them and basically feel very connected to them (if it’s a good friend). Sort of like Anne of Green Gables when she swore her undying love to Diana (or something like that ha ha ha). But I’m not bisexual. I don’t want to have sex with a woman, or date or marry a woman. It’s just a good, pure friendship.

Honestly, I think maybe a lot of people go through what you’re going through right now. Don’t freak out, don’t lie to yourself, and don’t label yourself. Maybe you’re bisexual, maybe your emotions are just all over the place because you’re growing up. Give yourself time, and give yourself grace.

Also, here’s an interesting article:

What I’ve been taught is that being homosexual isn’t necessarily a sin, it’s the stuff that homosexual people did that dishonoured God.
Also, God still loves you! No matter what happens, God won’t abandon you despite your feelings or what your parents think. Just trust in him, if you lean on Jesus and his word, things will eventually even out. Trust him!
I hope this helps!
