Well there is no such thing as someone who is a genuine christian and homosexual there is a christian person who is battling with the sin of homosexuality but not homosexual christian because in order to become christian you have to repent from your sins and make a 180 degree turn from your past life and start going away from your sin and homosexual Christians say that being homosexual is fine… they are deeply mistaken and their mistake will cost them eternity. There are many places in the bible that say that it is wrong like Romans 1-
22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
See that is why their cannot be born again christians who are gay…

I’m a gay Christian.Catholic, to be precise. For me, my relationship between sexuality and faith is not antagonistic. I do not believe the the bible, taking in translation and context into matters, forbids consenting, loving relationships between adults. I also believe that gender roles were rules applied as seen through the eyes of the author of the bible, and that God does not enforce gender roles or compulsory heterosexuality, and that that is a human invention.

Does anyone else realize that we almost went a whole year without this topic coming back up? Not that I mind, it just usually ends in a 32 page debate.

We have multiple forums on this but the best thing you can possibly do to get an answer is to contemplate the bible, pray to God on the matter, talk to people who are gay and Christian, who consider themselves as struggling with homosexuality, who choose celibacy, who embrace their faith and homo or bisexuality or just read their experiences and opinions. I’ll pull up a link to two essays by two gay Christians with differing beliefs…I’ll comment it below.

@trulyblessed …. Okay? Any particular reason? Or what? Do you just randomly dole out agreement/disagreement here, or did I say something you specifically didn’t like?

I am not gay (though many people think I am for some reason…) but my sister is Trans, bi, and asexual. She is a Christian. I honestly don’t see what the problem is. By saying that you can’t be gay and a Christian is kind of you basically saying YOU aren’t a Christian. Because as far as I can remember the Bible says to love everyone.. And that anyone and everyone can be a Christian. And you saying that someone who is gay can’t be is you just saying that you are openly sinning by trying to convince that person they can’t believe in God. So, remind me again, what’s the problem?
