Hello everyone, My name is Chris. I decided to join the forums for two reasons:
1. My son is struggling with his sexual identity but I support him no matter what he decides. Right now he says he's Bi, I told him what ever he decides, he always has his father's love and support, respect and acceptance.
2. I recently read a wonderful book by Mel White titled Religion Gone Bad. I firmly believe every word he wrote. Many things in there I suspected or could prove myself long before I found his book. I believe I was guided to his book at my local library, and from there to this forum.
Although I myself am Heterosexual it doesn't mean I haven't suffered at the hands of Fundamentalists of many faiths because I question the validity of a literal interpretation of a text. But this discussion is for another forum. I just wanted you all to know that is my primary reason for seeking out this website. I believe in everything Soulforce stands for. I hope I can contribute to this community, if only in a small way. Please feel free to contact me once I have my profile set up.:smashy:
Okay, okay...I know I talk too much. I'll save the rest for another post.
Just wanted to say hello!:love:
Welcome to Soulforce, Chris. It's wonderful to hear that you support your son as he tries to figure things out. Many folks have experienced similar feelings.
I read Mel White's book and couldn't put it down. I will pray for your son for guidance. I will pray that God will encourage both of you. Tell your son that God loves him unconditionally-and so do I.
Welcome to Soulforce Chris. Your words are a gift. Thanks.
Thanks to all who responded. It's great to hear positive things. We all need friends and you can never have too many, the way I see it. There's lot's to say so I will open a thread in general discussions I think, in order to discuss the many things on my mind. Again thanks for your hospitality.
