I don't know what I need. My faith is

I don't know what I need. My faith is hanging on by a thread. I'm starting to wonder if, deep down inside, I really even want a stronger relationship with Christ. My friends that I once looked up to as spiritual role models are falling away, too. I'm struggling to accept that I'm homosexual. I don't have any close friends in whom I can confide. Going off to college is exciting because I might finally be able to find a good church, make friends, and be rid of my demons... or it could make everything worse.

Speaking of college, I'm totally clueless as to what I want to do with my life. Normally, I would put it in God's hands, but I'm totally lost in that sense.

Sometimes life just seems like too much work.

  • ^ sorry to have asked. you just sound familiar

  • No, I don't go to UT Martin.

  • oh and i know this is anonymous but (talking to the person who wrote this) do you go to UT Martin right now?

  • i agree with the comment above me =D

  • LOVE YOURSELF, AND TREAT YOUR BODY LIKE A TEMPLE. NOTHINGS WRONG WITH BEING GAY!!!!

  • I ain't a f*****' scientist. I'm just trying to help the guy out a******!

  • There's no such thing as biologically wrong, dumbass.
    Being homosexual is just a biological anomaly. Gay people can't help it if they're gay, which is why I don't get unreasonably angry or afraid at them like most dumbasses do.

  • Homosexuality is biologically wrong. Just find a chick to have great a*** s** with, then you'll experience the best of both worlds!

  • The Bible is the Word of God. Jesus may not have been quoted as saying anything against homosexuality but he gave the inspiration to Paul and Moses to write about these things. Jesus was in the beginning with God. If you read the book of Genesis, God said "Let US make man in OUR image and OUR likeness."

    So to the commenter who wrote i'm an agnostic, understand something fully before you comment and make a fool of yourself. You are wrong. Jesus was very much against homosexuality and not just that but all sin. It's all the same, lying and homosexuality are one in the same. One way tickets to the bottomless pit.

  • F*** Adam and Eve. You can't believe that literally. If so, those women ribs sure a tasty.

    As far as I can tell, the OP never actually said that this is about a HE or a SHE. Madam and Eve? Hot.

    The first poster had it right. Find support. If anywhere it will be at a place of higher learning. Certainly not the Internet Hate Machine. The 2nd, 4th, and 5th poster keep that machine well oiled and in working condition.

  • Just about every commenter here is a dumbass. If you're not sure about god, why even believe in him if you think you're going to h*** for being gay, anyway?

    There is no god. Just be an atheist, and as gay as you want. I don't care.

  • Well, God made Adam & EVE, a******, NOT Adam & STEVE..... Forget the GOD thing, you are already damned to H***...

  • ^ WRONG!
    Genesis and Leviticus are in the Old Testament (Jewish scriptures). Nothing about Jesus in there.
    Romans 1:26 and 1:27 does not quote Jesus either.

    Actually, Jesus NEVER said anything about homosexuality.

    I, an agnostic, appear to know more about your "holy book" than you do.

  • Wow the commenter two comments above me is an idiot. How is that a double standard. Jesus never said don't eat with men or don't hang around them. So therefore there's no double standard. He never slept with any of his diciples so it's not a double standard that he teaches homosexuality as a sin. Next time you try to be deep at leat know what you are talking about.

    To the original poster. The second commenter is right about the Bible being against homosexuality. But that's something you need to think about when you are choosing a religion or path to follow in life. And no matter what path you choose there are going to be some haters. But I don't think the second commenter was hating on you. They just gave you a reality check of what you are going to get when you go to most christian churches.

  • Genesis 19:4-8
    Leviticus 20:13
    Leviticus 18:22
    Romans 1:26
    Romans 1:27

  • ^ it's people like that I can't stand. It's okay to love a man who never married and who hung out with 12 other men, and who invited people to eat him, but it's NOT okay to say you're gay? Isn't that a double standard?

    By the way tell me where in the Bible does Jesus say homosexuality is wrong?

  • First of all the gay thing has to go. That's why you are having such a hard time. If you are going to be a real Christian then you can't be gay. That's not only a sin but it's an abomination unto God. In this day in age there are a lot of people falling away from Christ, but again if you study your Bible this is no suprise to you. The Bible warns us that there will be a great fallling away. More people now go to church than ever before but that means nothing becuase most of the people are in church for all the wrong reasons. That's why everybody you look up to is falling away. Christ is clear on what he will and won't accept and regardless of what you may have heard or been told. Homosexuality is a sin. And i'm only stating this because that's what was in your confession. We all fall short and sin, but we can't sin on purpose. That's not Christlike. That's why Christ died on the Cross so that we can be forgiven of our sins. But that doesn't mean that we can just sin on purpose and then ask for forgiveness. You will only find peace in Christ and nothing else. So I say to you take a look at your self and see if you like what you see. If not make a change.

  • If you want to find peace with your lifestyle, you need to surround yourself with other people who accept and don't judge you for it. I am sure some of your college friends will be able to help you find a church or other group who are supportive. Good luck and don't take life so seriously, it's not permanent.
