Hi there! I borrowed the DVD from Melbourne Feedom group. I'm in Qld at the moment visiting family & old school friends. Just came out to my family a few weeks ago. I'm glad I did & was quite uneventful really. My parents trust my faith.

But sitting down to watch this was interesting. They didn't say much & I guess I didn't have expectations really. Just hope that they will slowly come to see that who I am is nothing to be afraid of. And that gay Christians do exist.

It was also just as much for me to watch & keep learning about what my beliefs actually are.

Even though I'm free now & not hiding, part of me is still unsure of gay marriage. It seems that it wasn't my family's reaction to me that worries me the most (i've already been hurt & rejected by my church friends) – I still worry about my salvation. ME personally. Not anyone else. I'm not wanting to judge anyone & I can't. But I need to be responsible for MY life.

If anything I'm.glad I'm at least starting to have a relationship with God again. And I feel heaps better about that. I needed to come to Him in my own time.

AND make the choice for myself. I've been submitting to others for a long time so listening to others advice recently has been hard to do. Hope I am making sense. Trusting other Christians again has been difficult. But I feel I need to work on that because relationships are important. I'll get there.

Thanks for listening

Don't worry about what other Christians have to say. Just trust in God who loves you with unconditional and unending love, who claims you as a beloved child. With this kind of God you have nothing to fear about your salvation. God would never reject a person made in God's image who trusts in the grace and mercy of God.
