As with any form of sinful behavior, the transgression comes not in being tempted , but in willfully engaging in activity that is contrary to God's law. So yes — you can be a Christian and struggle with homosexual tendencies at the same time; but no — you can't be a faithful, obedient Christian while willingly involving yourself in homosexual acts. Anybody who seriously desires to follow Jesus Christ needs to make it his or her goal to abstain from sexual practices that the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.
To go further: Not alongside you, not over you, but in you. This is the deeper reason why a practicing homosexual cannot be a practicing Christian. The same would go for any human being engaged in any sexual sin; just as Paul says in his first letter to the Corinthians, "Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?
Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! The app worked with GLAAD, the cast of Transparent , and trans activists to make sure it met the diverse needs of the trans community.

Chappy Free version: Yes See Details. Chappy is the latest app to cater to the relationship-seeking crowd among gay men. In , Chappy was introduced in three major cities: Los Angeles, London, and New York. Chappy brands itself as an app that caters to three demographics — people who are looking for long term relationships "Mr.
Right" , those who are looking something more casual "Mr. Right Now" and those who don't know what they want "Mr. Who Knows". It's unclear whether Chappy will produce longer and more satisfying relationships for me than traditional apps like Grindr. If nothing else, the app at least gives people the illusion that such a partnership is in their future. Delusions schelusions, we'll take it. Chappy is relatively small and young in app terms, so don't expect the overpopulated dating pool you might find on Grindr or Scruff.
The app requires users to have Facebook for verification purposes, so it won't work for those who've rightfully abandoned the platform. You're disproportionately likely to find people like this on the app. Chappy is free to download, though as their user base grows, so too might potential in-app purchases. Best for inclusivity. A-List Basic: Yes A-List Premium: It would be great if someone developed more queer- and trans-specific dating apps.
She loves, supports, encourages, and cares for me in ways I've only dreamed of. She is open and confident in her sexuality me on the other hand I was raised to believe it as a one way ticket to hell to love another female. I struggle with this everyday. My family who doesn't know of our relationship is completely against it and will not accept it under any circumstances nor will my friends.
I'm so afraid God will send me to hell as they say, so afraid of losing my family and friends and being judged, and I'm also afraid to lose the only true and real love I've ever known. I keep looking for answers, reading the bible but I am sp confused. I don't want to misinterpret the bible and think what I'm doing is right if I will go to hell,nor do I want to let go of my love if the Lord won't send me to hell as I've been taught. It just hurts.

Hi Lashae - There is help for your hurt in Jesus. Second, once you know for sure you are saved, it helps to understand what happens when you get saved.

My first question is I've always been attracted to women in a way but men as well. My partner is only attracted to women, I fell in love with her not because she's a woman but because if who she is, so do you believe God would view that as "Making a choice" not technically only being attracted to my same gender but both, in other words am I wrong for choosing a woman not a man. My second question is we are both growing in the Lord and being saved sex outside of marriage is a sin, we all know this.
We won't to be married once we are will this be a blessed union or will we still be sinning if we have relations. I'm ready to give my life to God and be free from worry and thanks for your help, so much. Thank God for you and your site.

Satan works directly through those people. So let me be as clear as 1 Corinthians 6: It says: Now Jesus does love us all. In this case homosexuality. That simple. Hi Boris - Your funny comments made my day! Paul didn't put the word, homosexual, in 1 Cor 6: There are many words Paul could have used if he wanted us to understand he was condemning gays. That you believe "there is no such thing as taking out of context" indicates you are a young Christian who doesn't know much about the Bible.
Otherwise, it is better to remain silent and make no comment on issues about which you have no knowledge.
Jan 07, ancient translation by: I guess there was interpretation problem?! Hi April - Good point and one I make many times on this website. In fact, I made the same point in my Oct 07, answer to Boris about the Greek language, just before your comment. Jan 10, i am bisexual by: This Good Person page explains all about it. Mar 02, No heaven for gays by: M Gay people will not b in heaven unless u change your wicked ways.
God already said in the Bible it is an abomination. Smart move using only the initial M. I wouldn't want to associate my name with that kind of bigotry either. May 27, Wow by: Sully It's very interesting that literally copied and pasted how to be saved straight from "The Way of the Master but yet you don't repent of homosexuality which by the way IS sexual SIN. I wrote to Ray and requested permission and Ray gave me permission to post the tract on my website, via Julie, his executive assistant, who answered my email request and relayed Ray's permission.
At the bottom of the page on which the tract appeared, was a note that it was posted with kind permission of LivingWaters. In the several years the Good Person tract was on my website, I had a dozen people or more write to let me know they got saved.
I should also point out that in my request for permission to post Ray's tract on my website, I included a link to my website so that it was clear from the beginning that my website takes a different view on gays than Living Waters.
- Is it true that I will go to hell because I am a lesbian and how can I know for sure?.

The point is that I did not post the tract on my own, simply disregarding Living Waters' rights. I requested and received permission from Ray to post it on my website. Julie relayed Ray's okay, granting permission and also pointing out that her brother is gay, that she and Ray and others from Living Waters have witnessed to him and asking me to pray for his salvation.
You may not be aware of it but there are a number of gay and lesbian Christians who have taken Ray and Kirk's Evangelism course, who use Living Waters and similar tracts and who witness and win souls on a regular basis. In April, , Allen Atzbi, who works for Ray Comfort, rescinded permission for me to feature Ray's tract on my website. After ascertaining that Ray supported Allen in his request, I removed the Good Person tract from my website. In its place, I wrote a witnessing script using the Ten Commandments and adding in lots of Bible verses which are not normally used in Ray's presentation.
So to be accurate, I did not literally copy Ray's words although I did use a similar approach. I hope this explains it to your satisfaction. Jul 20, Then why in the OT was being gay punishable by death? M Ok then why in the old testament was being gay punishable by death? Hi M - There is no chapter in the Old Testament where being gay is punishable by death.
Every passage cited to support that view is ripped out of its biblical cultural doctrinal historical linguistic and religious context, in order to teach that lie from hell. God bless as you read and study His infallible word, 2 Timothy 2: Dec 01, Highly at The verge of losing my mind by: Yvonne Im Lesbian but I truly love God and would really want to be saved but I have my other christian friends who keep preaching to me about the verse that talks about homosexuals not going to heaven and also the destruction of Sodom n Gomorrah, It leaves me devastated. Hi Yvonne - God has a good reason for bringing you to my website.
God has good news and peace of mind for us when we believe what He says in the Bible.
