cowboyrev: I am gay part 2

I am gay part 2

Sep 21 2017 at 07:14pm
So I sent a copy of my blog I am gay, to a friend of mine who is married, straight and a Baptist. This is our transmission:

"I agree with you that people don't just chose to be gay.  They same way that people don't chose to like certain foods. A person likes what they like. 


I just wanted you to understand what I believe, which is that being born gay is not a sin but acting out on the impulse is.  I am not saying that we can't be friends because of this because we are all sinners.  I also recognize that I don't know everything and could be wrong on this issue as I could be wrong on many issues.  The fact is that only God knows everything.  I try my best to please God and do what is right, but like everyone else, I sometimes fail. 


We don't have to agree on the issue."

"In your reply you said, "I just wanted you to understand what I believe, which is that being born gay is not a sin but acting out on the impulse is." 

So in a way that sounds a tad bit hypocritical, if I was born straight it would be ok to act on that impulse, but since I'm born gay, it's not.  That would be like me giving you a brand new truck, but keeping the keys.  


Sometimes our beliefs are based on what we were told since growing up.  I was put in a position where all my beliefs were torn down and then rebuilt.  Talk to God directly about this matter.  Ask Him about this matter and if you're still convinced then I'll drop the issue for the time being.  Sex, gay or straight, outside of a committed relationship is sin."

So far he has not replied back.
