Please hear me out because I know this topic is controversial but I need guidance. So, I’m a girl, and I’m starting to having feelings for someone of the same gender. I like men too, but I don’t know how to face this. The verses in Leviticus are hard to justify because in the original text it’s a lot different than the English translations. I need some advice and please do not be rude. Love you guys.

Honestly, it depends on what you believe about what the Bible says. I personally believe all loving and monogamous relationships are okay and should be considered marriage. I believe that marriage is intended for the two people to be a reflection of God’s love to the other person and I don’t believe same-sex relationships violate that in any way. Like we even tell you for hetero-crushes and relationships, pray about it. Listen to what the Spirit is telling you with a pure heart that’s following Jesus’ example.
I’d say wait to see how she feels about you and treat it as you would any other crush. The subject does make for controversy and different interpretations. I hope that whatever conclusion you come to regarding this, . your relationship with God becomes stronger because of your contemplation and struggle. God bless!

Hmmm..i think you should read try to understand your bible better cus it will help..every answer you need is there. I don’t think its right to have a same sex partner. Do things that keep you busy and not thinking of her. think of what you know is right and what would build a better relationship with God 🙂 🙂 🙂

This was from a blog that I wrote last year. I have struggled with very similar things in my past, but the Lord has brought the Scripture in the blog to convict me and change my heart and bring me away from those sins. http://jbrown346.wordpress.com/2013/12/20/and-such-were-some-of-you/

Hey there. I haven’t visited this site in a couple years, but I found it again and a lot has changed for me. I used to struggle with my attraction towards ladies too, and it confused me because I still had the same attraction towards men. Then I found a pretty good community of people on tumblr who feel the same way I do, and they helped me see that this attraction wasn’t wrong. I’ve identified as bisexual for two years now, and it’s the happiest and most confident in myself I’ve ever been.

Spot on with vickifay and nerdygirl. I’m bisexual, too, and honestly, I felt closer to my faith when I accepted myself because I was not lying to myself or God about who I love and how I feel. Lots of lgbt religious people I know report the same feelings!

Pray. Pray. Pray. No matter what this world has to say, just listen to His one voice and pray.
Lots of hugs and best wishes on figuring everything out with God. 🙂

Same-sex romantic relationships are NOT Biblical. Yes, we should love everyone with the same self-sacrificing love Jesus loved us with, but romantic relationships are meant for one man and one woman and that’s it. We all struggle with different sin and attraction to the same gender happens to affect many people. Prayer and time spent with God is the best route to take.

First off, ok yes, Leviticus is confusing BUT 1 Timothy 1 mentions homosexuality as a “contrary to sound teaching”. Romans 1 says it is a “dishonorable passion” and “contrary to nature”. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 reads “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”

I just would like to add, if my last message sounded too fuzzy, that I don’t support homosexuality, bisexuality, or any of those things.

I would like you to know that many, many organizations out there exist for LGBT teenagers who are Christian, that plenty of individuals and even churches do not condemn it, and that your sexuality is a part of how you experience the world, and not evil.

Seconding everything that maryse has said! It’s a struggle at first to find where your identity fits in with your faith, but there are tons of support networks out there so you can feel welcome no matter how you identify.
(@maryse: I didn’t notice before since I was on mobile, but nice Mortal Instruments pic! Looks like we’ve got two things in common :))

I think that you should pray about it and ask God what these feelings are that you are experiencing. I have a lot of friends that I go to church with that say they have had feelings like this for girls, but they eventually realized that while they did love the girl, it wasn’t in a romantic way. Sometimes when you are really close to someone, it just gets kind of fuzzy what you really want in your relationship with that person. With that said, if it turns out that the way you feel about this girl is in a romantic way, treat it like any other relationship and go for it. And don’t let anti-LGTB pastors or anyone for that matter scare you or make you feel like you’re not God’s beautiful creation. Be you and do what you feel will make you happy because that’s what matters. At this point, I feel it is unneeded to state my opinion on the subject because honestly, no matter what I think or what anyone else on here thinks, you deserve to make this choice yourself and choose what makes you happy. God will help you through this situation no matter what happens 🙂
