What is your personal view about LGBT?

I was asked by this young man to write about LGBT and I immediately expressed my hesitation to even inscribe a single word about it. You know, this matter is undeniably debatable – an activity that my old self enjoyed for the longest time – something that my new self carefully inhibits, cautiously avoids and vigilantly constraints from being entertained (again) by it.

Nonetheless, the invitation to join this BLOgUEST 101 with the subject that has been imposed upon me actually threw down the gauntlet in me. Being on a 42-day social media hiatus where I cannot even see my blog site makes me crave on writing and sharing my ideas. The longing is kicking in. The hunger is somewhat painful.

So, let’s get straight on it. What really is my view about LGBT? I honestly see them as an ordinary people around me. A human. A sinner, just like everyone else in this world. Someone who needs and entitled to be respected. Someone who longs for and worthy of a prefect love and affection.

Truth is I always have them in almost every group of friends I belong. They are fun to be with. They are sincere. They have a good heart. I confide to them. They’ve been with me during my darkest and deepest sorrow when I was moving on from a throbbing heartbreak. They, too, are hurting. They, too, are getting frustrated. They, too, are being cheated and being robbed from the happiness they fully deserved.

However, these special friends of mine are completely aware of my perspective about their gender preferences that come along with having same-sex-relationships. I once told them individually, “You know that my love for you is indisputable. But you know as well that being a follower of Christ, I am not approving this and that.” Bound by strong friendship, (and maybe knowing that I have all the biblical references on this case), mutual respect was automatically displayed. That’s what real friends are for, anyway. Yep, we’re sharing memories for almost a decade now.

At this point of my writing, I am addressing this argument to the Christians. Brethren, let us not put anyone into the Condem Nation. Yes, you may view them as different – just like you and me; for we are His workmanship, wonderfully and fearfully made. (Psalms 139:13-4.) Yes, you may view them as sexual immoral – just like you and me; for impurity includes pre-marital sex and intercourse out of wedlock (1 Thessalonians 4:3-5). Yes, you may view them as sinners – just like you and me; for all have sinned and fall short on the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Yes, you may view them as one bound for hell – just like you and me; for Apostle John wrote on Revelation 21:8,But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars – they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Now tell me, who doesn’t lie?

Lastly, just like you and me, they need Jesus in their lives; for He died on the cross, once and for all – not for a few, not for some, but for all.

Gays, lesbians and the like; men and women alike, may we all learn to be far from the danger of displaced dependence; may we all learn to treat everyone in loving and kind way and may we all learn to live each day with the main intent to inspire and not to impress.

    Nice blog, bro about this controversial topic. I also share the same sentiment. Sin is sin and any sin should be repented of. We can judge a person’s action, but not their eternal destiny. It’s God’s prerogative. As Christians, we have the responsibility to shine as lights and not “convert” anyone. As they say, hate the sin, love the sinner. 🙂

    By the way, please permit me to post a link to my blog post about this topic. Sana okay lang. 🙂 The title is, “Homosexuality and Christianity: Can the Two Come Together?”
