HOW TO RESPOND TO THOSE WHO IDENTIFY AS GAY CHRISTIANS
We need to remember that those who identify as gay Christians sincerely believe in God. Many have been Christians since childhood and know what the bible says. They have prayed fervently for God to remove their same- sex attractions, but as the years pass and the attractions are still there, some come to believe that either God doesn’t hear them, God doesn’t care about them, God isn’t real, or maybe God is simply okay with these attractions. Since they don’t want to walk away from God because they know He is real, nor do they want to lose their relationship with Him, the only option left is to believe that God is okay with it. That is when they often turn to popular authors, churches and ministries that affirm gay Christian ideology. Once they are around others who agree, their belief becomes more solid and they begin to identify as gay Christians.
