1For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
13 For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters;* only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence,* but through love become slaves to one another. 14For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’
This chapter of Galatians is quoted quite extensively in the book The Children Are Free
. I think this book is probably the best and clearest of any that deal with same-sex relationships and the Bible.
Those of us who are LGBT can rejoice that Christ has set us free. Free from sin, free from the leglism of those who wish to oppress us, free to love each other.
I think that the greatest change I have had in my outlook on life since coming to terms with being gay is freedom. Religion is less about knowing every doctrine or following every rule; it is more about living a life of love no matter what and accepting people no matter who they are. The Bible has become less a book to be deciphered and more a guide. It's been a good change.
