Anonymous asked: I suppose I agree with you to an extent. I agree Christians do lie, Christians fornicate, harbor anger, and so on but that’s where repentance comes in. and after repentance you try your best to not repeat that same sin. So why would a Christian woman start a relationship with another woman, repent daily and stay in that same relationship? If you could do this with every sin than why commit your life to Christ to begin with?
I think our sexuality like so many things is subject to the rule and reign of the Holy Spirit. I believe that lives both in the pages of the Bible but also in our lives. As long as we give our sexuality over to God to rule and reign we are in the clear. For some people that might look like heterosexual love. For others that might look like homosexual love. I believe God’s plan for the world is co-creation with man and redemption. Maybe homosexuality was not God’s plan for man in the garden, but God allows us the room to create and what God does is redeem what we have made. He kicked us out of the garden… that doesn’t mean that God will destroy the city man made afterward to house him and his family. What it means is when God extends his hand into the city, he makes man’s creation perfect. That’s why in the end times we don’t return to Eden… we are residents of the city of ZION. In this way man creates history with God and God perfect this. I believe this is possible with relationships. I believe its possible with love. If two people are committed, monogamous, self-sacrificing, and walking in God’s love towards each other, why should that categorically be a sin….
I hook up with boys too. I kiss them. I let them touch me. I touch them. I date them but I’m not married… I repent when I hook up with someone out of a desire to use them or a desire to feel powerful or wanted. But I don’t repent for being intimate with someone I care for and who God placed in my life. According to your logic, that would make me not a Christian… Instead of focusing on other people’s sins how bout we focus on God’s love for them. All sin comes out of mistrust which comes out of fear. And we both know a perfect love casts out all fear.
