A Gay Christian Bachelor
Someone asked me the above question. Well, I answered him; I will copulate if I want to. It is not the copulation that drives me, it is but my prerogative. No one can tell me to have sexual intercourse or marry a woman just to act on my sex drive. Obviously, if men appeals to me more, why would I push myself to copulate with women? And I believe I am capable by having the means to choose my man-partner! Yes, I am free to have sex with men as far as my wits is concerned! But since spirituality is a higher concern than physical, my point here is that I was given the freedom but not to succumb to the call of the flesh.
Galatians 5:13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
And more importantly, I am not a hypocrite, like those persons who either call themselves Christian or not.
I am not even doing this “cleansing” just to please any person! I am not a fool to waste the wisdom and understanding given to me, that “grace” from God! I am a gay – bachelor and I opted to be one. Like some Eunuchs that opted to be one for kingdom of heaven’s sake.
Matthew 19:11Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. 12For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”
Now, it is true that God commanded man and woman to produce off-springs.
Yes, but that was during the time when the planet earth has been cleansed: when the life out of the evil hearted men was cut off. That was when the planet earth began to cradle righteous men that came out from the ark.
Genesis 9:11 And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
Remember how the commandment was given to Noah, who obeys God in everyway?
Genesis 7:1And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
Genesis 9:1And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
But now, since the planet earth is overpopulated and again, full of evil hearted men, is it not wiser to stop producing more off-springs that we cannot even teach about the bible? We all know that the end of times is nearing. If I shall have children during this times I would not want them to suffer during the Great Tribulation. I know that I can endure it but I cannot gamble my salvation. The Church can taste the worst experience, one is being killed by the unbelievers or dying from hunger before the end times but I don’t think you can face it seeing your child starved to death. You might succumb to the call of the flesh during those times for as it was said, it will be a tribulation that never happened yet, even in the past. (If this tribulation consists of war of the spirits, of doctrines, remember, Christians does not wrestle in flesh. I do not want to delve more here until these scenarios be revealed by Brother Eliseo Soriano, when he prophesy in the spirit with the divine guidance of the Holy Spirit, God willing.)
More importantly, I don’t want to be anxious about this world but rather be anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit, now that I am learning from the scriptures.
How do homosexual Christians perceive reality and the future? It is all about preparation. The scriptures state:
1 Corinthians 7
25Now concerning the betrothed, I have no command from the Lord, but I give my judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy. 26I think that in view of the present distress it is good for a person to remain as he is. 27Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be free. Are you free from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28But if you do marry, you have not sinned, and if a betrothed woman marries, she has not sinned. Yet those who marry will have worldly troubles, and I would spare you that. 29This is what I mean, brothers: the appointed time has grown very short. From now on, let those who have wives live as though they had none, 30and those who mourn as though they were not mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they had no goods, 31and those who deal with the world as though they had no dealings with it. For the present form of this world is passing away.
32I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. 33But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife, 34and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband. 35I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord.
36If anyone thinks that he is not behaving properly toward his betrothed, if his passions are strong, and it has to be, let him do as he wishes: let them marry-it is no sin. 37But whoever is firmly established in his heart, being under no necessity but having his desire under control, and has determined this in his heart, to keep her as his betrothed, he will do well. 38So then he who marries his betrothed does well, and he who refrains from marriage will do even better.
39A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. 40Yet in my judgment she is happier if she remains as she is. And I think that I too have the Spirit of God.
The message is plain and crystal clear for those who tries to understand.
It is not just about men or women being married, or not being married, but also for every rational being who has the capacity to decide on what his status to retain. Homosexuals or Gay Christians are people too, and some opted to be a Eunuch: not physically cutting off their reproductive organ but instead avoiding sex or the call of lust. It is for the sake of their salvation, to be anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit.
Maybe some homosexuals are called such because they have copulated with the same sex, while gays would just want to be effeminate with the same longing and be a woman in all aspect of being a woman. I for one, want to have sex with men too be it for love or lust, I do not know and I believe it is normal in the flesh. But let us consider also the idea that some of us, gays have not experience copulating with the opposite sex. Would that give us the right to have sex with same gender and to the extent of even getting married?
Only by thoroughly studying the scriptures that gays or homosexuals can be freed from the bondage of lies and deceptions made by the devil: the confusion of whether to have sex or not to have sex, and with whom. And by realizing such, we will be able to proceed to the next step of understanding, to the widerscope out of our own: to accept what we are, and what we ought to do, that with the “grace” of God.
