I am no longer calling myself a Christian.

Ok I’ve had enough.

The message of Christ has been diluted so much by people like UKIP who have turned it into “gay’s can’t get married”, to “Christian Concern” who seriously think that you can make a gay person straight, trust me I tried everything to be straight, I got married, I went to conferences but guess what I’m still gay. The damage caused by these groups over the years is huge, just google ex-gay and read up  on some of the psychological problems caused by trying to make someone change their sexuality.

Last night on LBC radio there was  Christian saying that she had 2 gay friends who were celibate. (basically that means lonely) she said they had to live that way, would she live that way? I doubt it, she’d go have a nice family, but she stands by why LGBT people are supposed to be alone. Unfair, unjust and frankly unchristian. What about Genesis where it says it is not good for a man to be alone?, What about Paul’s instruction that if you have problems with lust you should get married?… (although I’m sure not everyone that get’s married has a problem with lust?!). Paul said there is no law against love but these people make up laws. They reduce sexuality to one act. Whereas sexuality is much more than that.

I cannot for the life of me understand why Christian’s can’t focus on things like Loving your neighbour, instead have become captivated by something Jesus hardly had anything to say about.

What happened to the message of the gospel? What happened? it got hijacked by people who think that they should go round telling other people how to live. I’m angry about it, I want the gospel back to Jesus dying for our Sin, to God so loving every one of us that he died for us.

I am fascinated by the number of overweight preachers that condemn gay people but completely ignore the regular condemnation of gluttony in the Bible. “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone” has been completely forgotten.

I want Christians who don’t agree that I’m worth saving to get off my case. Go to church, do your stuff but leave me alone.

I just want to get back to the Gospel. I want to be like Jesus. I want to follow him with all my heart. Something that is incredibly difficult unless, it seems, you are a child. Then it is simple.

About Jesus it was said, a bruised reed he did not break. So stop breaking us. stop thinking you have any idea what it’s like to be attracted to the same sex. stop it. go back to Jesus, find him and share his love. Then you can bring healing to what is REALLY broken.

    Of course you are a Christian. Don’t be daft. You know that Jesus died so that you had a way of being made whole with God. I was reading 2 Corinthians today (as you do). He says something pretty fundamental in 2 Corinthians 3, verse 6 where he says “He made us ministers of a new covenant – not of the letter but of the spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life”. If ever we had a guideline to live through the spirit of Jesus instead of a deadening law written in stone, then this is it! We are brothers in Christ. Of this I am sure. I am sure that the Holy Spirit is telling me this. Do not give up on your faith.

      To be honest its more about the message that the word “Christian” is conveying right now… ( you did READ it? )

      By the way folks please read Jon’s amazing blog!!!

    I guess you just got to where I was a couple years ago. I feel sorry for you because that loss of faith leaves a wrenching hole; the loss of community makes you feel empty; and the realisation that your smugness was unwarranted leads to self-doubt. Your (former?) holy book says You shall know them by their fruits. And now you recognise their fruits are often immense and unforgiveable harm.
