From tomorrow, I will be doing a 10-day series around the issue of sex and sexuality. Why? Because if I am honest, I know a lot of single people (and married) are struggling with it in one way or another and need help in this area. You would need to be a hermit not to notice that sex and sexuality is being bombarded at us from EVERY angle.

When I was younger, you had to make an effort to see explicit stuff and attached to it was shame. Looking left and right before reaching for the top shelf. Now the explicit stuff comes to you. All of the mens magazines are now on the bottom shelves and in clear view of children. Music videos blatantly pushes sex through the screens. You would be hard pressed to name three secular songs that promote purity. Pornography is a multi million business and many christians are just one click away from becoming porn addicts. I have already explained that this area is every man’s battle  and how you can download free accountability software from X3Watch. So I thought lets not sweep this under the carpet but lets address this issue upfront so that we can hopefully help those who are bound but desperately want to get out (and for those who also see no need to get out).

I know what I am talking about because I have been that very person in the past. It will not be an in depth discussion on the topic but hopefully it will help and minister to you all the same.

Please leave your comments during the week and feel free to be anonymous.

    To the “lesbian” that turned straight,

    It is people like you that give people like me such a negative repatation. I’m so angry about some of the things that you have said in that video. It doesn’t take an genious to figure out that your sexual idenity is a genenic factor. Is everyone born mentally and or physically retarded? Is everyone born with autism? The list can go on and on. You are born as a homosexual and most aren’t. Most people aren’t born with autism or born mentally or physically retarded! When I hit puberity, I didn’t know what in the world was going on with me! I started to be attracted towards boys. I was so confused. I didn’t want to feel like that. I thought that something was wrong with me. I gave it time like a couple of weeks, then months, then years. I still was attracted sexually to men. I’m a very spiritual person. I was raised in a Lutheren Church. Thankfully, the church that I belonged to didn’t condemn homesexuality or say that all “gay” people will go to hell! When I say that I am “gay” to friends, coworkers, other people, they can’t believe it. I don’t act like a female. I don’t talk like “gay” people talk. (I guess the “gay” talk is when a “flamer” talks) I don’t look or act gay at all. All through highschool, I had to hide my true feelings to people. I tried so hard to like girls, but I just couldn’t. I can say that a girl is really pretty, sexy, hot, etc. I’ve even “made out” with girls…..Ok, when is she going to stop! I would think to myself. I didn’t get the butterfly feeling in my stomach and I wasn’t aroused AT ALL from any of the women I’ve made out with. I’m a very attractive model like male so the women I would get were beautiful so it wasn’t because they were ugly that might of turned me off. At first I thought it was a stage, then a long stage, then a really long stage! I thought going to college was the answer. There would be all sorts of girls there! Well, 1,2,3,4 years went by and I still didn’t have a sexual attraction for a woman. I tried so hard because I did want a familiy and kids. I knew my parents wanted a grandchild. I was under so much pressure.
    I started to abuse narcotic pain killers inorder to numb my feelings. I felt great for a while. I didn’t think about sex with anyone. Eventually, I had become a drug addict. Ten years of pure hell. I had my first partner when I was 21. The relationship was a very loving one, but he also had a drug problem. He didn’t like who he was either. The damn society we live in had made us hide who we were, make us ashamed of being “gay”, forcing us to like women, have a family and kids…..You know all of the “normal” s*** that goes on these days! Well, thanks to the “norm” my partner and I were drug addicts and eventually, my partner, Nathan, comitted suicde by hanging himself. The pain was just to bad. He couldn’t handle being picked on, harrassed, doing drugs just so he wouldn’t feel anything like being attracted to men!
    Well, I haven’t been in a relationship since Nathan died on June 28th 2007. I’ve been in a methadone program for almost 3yrs now. I have 17 clean drug screens now. The family and friends I pushed away because of my addiction are coming back into my life again. It was the drugs they didn’t like it wasn’t the fact that I was gay! That’s what they all told me. They would say, “I don’t care if you are gay, straight, bisexual, or whatever. I don’t like it when you are on drugs! I never want to see you in that hospial again from an overdose and a preacher reading you your last rights! You have so much to offer this world. I had become friends with Justin. The Justin before he used drugs. You being gay absolutely doesn’t even effect the way I felt about you before I knew you were gay. Who gives a s***. You have a heart of gold and so many good qualities that I wish I had. You need to see those in yourself, not me. People who don’t want to know you or like you because of being gay, they can all go f*** off! They are the one’s that need to change for God, not you. God put’s all of us on Earth for a reason and for a purpose. Justin, you definetly have a purpose, but first you need to quit letting those prejudiced pricks control your life. You need to love yourself before you can really love anybody else or fulfill your purpose.”
    Now, that’s a true friend and a true child of God. For all of those “Christians” out there who hate or have a real problem with gay people, when it’s judgement day for you I guarantee God isn’t going to be real happy with you all. He’s going to chew your asses off. There will be some consequences for your hatred of some of Gods children on Earth.
    I think I’ve made my point. So to the woman who turned straight, I feel sorry for you. Society has either gotten to you or you are a coward and are giving into these “religious freaks” who think you go to hell for everything!
    I should have been dead many times from a drug overdose, car accident, and not being in a car one day when my bestfriend went head on with another car and was killed. God has spared me at least 3 times and if he truely hated gays I think that he would have taken me by now!
    I have a wonderful relationship with Lord Jesus and God. I pray everyday for myself and for all of God’s children. I’m at peace with God and that’s all that matters.
    I wish all of the luck in the world to the “exlesbian”. Do you remember like 100yrs ago, when it was a sin to be black? Think about that question for a while, before you make an awful prejudiced statement again. Think before you open your big mouth!
    Sincerely,
    Justin Scott

    Justin,

    First of all let me say that i am sorry to hear about your friend commiting suicide. Even though you didnt write the above comment to me, I thought I ould just clear up a fe points. First of all, my opinion is not the final authority but Gods word is and it is VERY clear

    Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Cor 6:9-10)

    24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. 26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. (Romans 1:24-27)

    Notice that in the first scripture, along with homosexuals, it includes the sexually immoral, idolaters and adulterers which include hetrosexual people. The bible says that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire (Rev 21:8) so God is not picking out homosexuals. He picks out sinners. those who have broken his moral laws whic include lying, stealing, taking the Lord’s name in vain. That leaves none of us innocent. We are all guilty. That is why we need a saviour. But e must repent (turn from our sins) and trust in Jesus and him alone for our salvation. Our good works ill not save us. God has spared your life as you said but you will die one day and the question is where will you go? Do not try and justify your sin and make up a god which will accomodate your sin which is called idolotary.
