hey 4JC, I am 24 just to add to the cencus.

I come from a very different experince, the oppisite to the Christian bubble. I lived as an active member of the gay community for years and the only Christian person I knew were the ones that screamed obsenities at the Mardi Gras. Not a pretty picture.

Its almost ironic then for me to have done a complete 180 and come to the conclusion that embracing my sexuality is not the right choice due to my Christian beliefs. It goes to show that really, we are not so much the sum of our society and our experinces as we think we are. Anything is possible and everyone’s story is as unique as their fingerprint. Just because something happened to person x does not mean that it will, or that it should happen to you.

The last couple of months I feel alienating from God, because I can not accept His grace over it. I realy love Him so much He is my everything and I want that our relationship will be better.

I can not come I think, I live in a sub town of sydney. 40 min by bus

4JC, all I can say is, just approach God as you are where you are at in your questioning, dont try and work it all out, no one really can, he loves it when we are honest and open with him in our struggles, actually it is when he is the closest to you, remember Jesus said come to me all who are thirsty and heavy laden and I will give you rest for my yoke is easy my burden is light, he meant every word of that, he never rejected anyone, ever!!!! If its too heavy trying to figure it out, just hang and chill a little, you can talk about anything at all on here if you want to, theirs no rush in trying to sort it out. Many of us sometimes struggle with Gods grace, be us gay or straight, it doesnt make sense but its true and its real, he wont see you any differently from before if you approach him with you questioning being gay being ok, he is more compassionate and understanding than any human being could ever possibly be. Didnt he say that he has carved us on the palm of his hand, how can he forget us? that says a lot to me, he just loves us beyond our comprehension, its like a parent, a parent cant erase a love they have for their child, its just not possible (they can reject and say they do but at some point they always admit that they love their kids). I dont know how else to console you, I can see you love the Lord very much and so do I, no matter what anyone says, Jesus loves you, right here, right now, no question about it.

( I apologise if this sounds a bit full on but just sharing the truth, weve all been here before at some point or even now and we do get through, it is possible)

Hello I’m new here and I have a question what is the average age on this forum. I’m 26 years. I’m disappointed in the struggle that I’m in, reading Anthony’s strory and the fall of preachers in this gave a conclusion you can not be free of this feelings.

I’m 26 too 4JC.

33 years old. Although since coming out earlier this year, I’ve remarked to people an awful lot of times that I feel and act more like a teenager in many respects. I guess it’s because much of my development when it came to things like dating and relationships froze in time about 17 years ago.

I’m also very conscious of this whole ‘Christian bubble’ versus ‘gay scene’ thing. This year I’ve had a strong focus on acquiring gay friends simply because I didn’t [knowingly] have any before. It’s the side of me that’s been neglected.

Nevertheless, I am still a Christian. Sometimes it seems that it’s just as much a challenge to get gays to accept that I’m a Christian as it is to get Christians to accept that I’m gay.

Which is precisely why meeting other gay Christians – who can understand it’s possible to be BOTH – is so important and why things like Freedom 2 b(e) are so valuable.
