Just saying hello. Might lurk for a while. I am a woman just into my 30's. . . just now thinking maybe I don't need to heal attraction to women . . . but still consider celibacy sometimes because I don't know what to do with scripture. . . I am not out. I am not in an open or accepting church. All that to say, the internet is my resource right now.
I look forward to reading some of your discussions. . . that's about all I'll say but thanks for existing online. :)

glad to have you. You are starting a new exploration into self discovery. I recall a Dutch proverb. "once you are outside the door, you already have a great deal of the journey behind you."
Acceptance and affirmation of your own NATURE is the foundation of Spirituality
Some say being gay is a choice. They are half right. You can choose to be
true to your nature and experience passion, romance and love, all essential
parts of a balanced normal life. Or you can falsely pretend to be attracted to the opposite sex and live an empty passionless lie.
There is no verse in the Bible that can leap off the page and harm anyone. The only harm comes from what some one might do to you in the name of their God. Violence in spirit or material form is not God's will. If a verse causes you to feel fearful, negatively, or angry toward yourself or others, then you are just not ready at this time to understand it. Select another verse that makes you feel love toward yourself and others for this is God's message that you are ready to understand.
God wishes us to love one another (man or woman) so that he can share in our joy!
love and affirmation,
