A Gay Christian Bachelor

“If I was created by God, then why wouldn’t I have a sex drive that I can’t act on? It doesn’t make sense to me!”

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.

    It’s obvious that you love the Lord with all your heart and want to do His will. I am continually amazed at all of the goodness I see around me… even in places where I may have been judgmental in the past, I now see God’s grace and mercy.

    Praying for you, Brother in Christ.

    To Bro Elman,

    I agree with what you said. It is truly that only the Holy Scriptures (the Words of God in the Bible) has the sole power to do killing the lusts of the flessh (in us). By God’s grace and divine intervention and the will of our FREEWILL to follow God in ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS He is EXPECTING OF US and FROM US. I was once astrayed and swerved from the MAINSTREAM, the CHURCH OF GOD, her Doctrines and her RELIGIOUS OBLIGATIONS that I ought to do. I have no peace of mind and heart in me. I found myself so to be very alone in the wilderness, realizing that my life seemed to be very MISERABLE and I felt within me taht I am useless and meaningless due to too much guilt i felt and the torment of my conscience to my heart. I would even reached the suicidal state of my mind. I withdrawn myself from getting in in our gatherings and all that. All are getting worst and worst. It seemed to be like the Armageddon (Rev.16:16) of my flesh and my my inner man, my good side and the bad side in me. Until one day, I visted our website and listend to what BRo. Eli is saying, his inspirational talks about his deepest deisre to go to the Heaven of heavens (2 Cor. 12:2), just even to the humblest part of it like the John or RESTROOM if there’s like that in Paradise (2 Cor.12:3), I was moved to repentance and prayers. Until I have found myself crying for hours and tears upon tears falling. Bro. Eli serve as my inspiration and so do more are the Word’s of God that he is preaching especially during our Pasalamat sa Dios ng Israel (Thanksgiving to the God of Israel) every Saturday in Apalit, Pampanga, in the Philippines. I know that God is really working in my life in countering the sex drive and the lust in me and so do more to Bro. Eli for he is leading the entire brethren and the entire universe to righteousnes and eternity. (Some of the readers may ask why I use the term “ENTIRE UNIVERSE”?) ask me why and I will give you the answer.

    sincerely and lovingly yours,

    Thank God for your uplifting words Brother in faith. May I just post here a timely verse for both of us and to those who experience the same cross that we both carry with Christ.

    Galatians 6

    1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    2Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

    4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

    5For every man shall bear his own burden.

    6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

    7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

    10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

    11Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.

    12As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

    13For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.

    14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

    15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

    16And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

    17From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

    18Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

    Bro. Elman, one of the true men of God:

    All I can utter to your post above is AMEN… AMEN… and AMEN. To GOD of ISRAEL be all the glories, homors, powers forever and ever Amen!!!

    I remeber the very FIVE WISE WORDS that the PANTAS (WISE MAN) have said to his fellow wise men-servants of God:

    There was once a feastive party and grand gathering of the wise men in the most illustrious venue. The GRAND WISE MAN was the distinguished “Guest of Honor” and the “Keynote Speaker” expected to deliver the most of his wisest words and wisdom that would edify them all. Thirty minutes to three hours or more was alloted for his speech. The ceremony had started early just to give more time for the speaker’s wisest address yet the speaker had not yet arrived. They were all excited and anticipative of what his message would be. They had no idea on what would it be at all but one thing is for sure is that, his words are the wisest of all. The speaker had tarried long but they patiently and untiringly waited for him while their zealousnes and excitement grew eagerly as the hours paased by.

    “At last!” someone shouted aloud, “The ‘Grand Wise Man’ had come.” “Come, let us all stand, meet him and see him in our midst.” The Grand Wise Man entered in their rendezvous receiving an ear-breaking noise and rejoicing and loud plaudits from the audience.

    The speaker stand in their midst. The audience was expecting for the lengthy yet wisest of his words but the speaker proved them wrong to their former expectation. He began opening his mouth and uttered his “FIVE WISEST WORDS” for that grandiose event saying, “(1.)NEVER (2.)EVER (3.)EVER (4.)GIVE (5.)UP!” and immediately left them after all.

    They all stood up and once again made the great noise of jubilation for the new inspiring words and wisdom from him. They offered sacrifices of thanksgiving to the Almighty for such blessings they received and heard. Out of the five simple but the wisest of his words they had heard from him, everybody was pacified and edified for they believed those words came from the Almighty GOD whom they served. They were delivered to them by HIS humble but wisest instrument, the GRAND WISE MAN.

    The message of the GRAND WISE MAN is very simple yet full of wisdom that comes from above. And it means “SALVATION, LIFE and ETERNITY, etc.” Bro, you may immediately ask WHY? and HOW? Remember that the WISE WORDS have the WISE MESSAGE or MEANING right? LOL. SALVATION is LIFE and LIFE is ETERNAL or ETERNITY (Remember one of the topics in our pasalamat? That God is using some terms that fit to human understanding.)

    The answer to that questions is found in Matthew 10:22 saying,
    ____________________________________________________________________________
    22 “All men will hate you because of me, BUT HE WHO STANDS FIRM TO THE END WILL BE SAVED.”
    ____________________________________________________________________________

    and that Grand Wise Man as we all know is none other than our very own, The Singular Sensible Preacher Of Our Time. I hope you also got the message of HIS and his words. May it will inspire us more and more to move on FORWARD unto PERFECTION that GOD of ISRAEL is expecting of us and from us.

    sincerely and lovingly yours,

    X-ian (christian)
    Your tiny brother and useless servant in/of Christ
