I used to think like so many Baptists out there.
I used to think I knew everything just by reading the Bible face value.
God shook my core and showed me I was taking the wide road.
Most Christians (definitely not all) will tell you homosexuality is a sin…an abomination.
Then out of “love” they will point this out to someone that claims they are gay even if this gay person is clearly running after God (personally, I still make mistakes).
Instead of comforting them and embracing them just as they are they in turn push them away from God.
I did this…to myself.
I prayed and prayed God would make me straight to protect me from myself and to please God.
But His response wasn’t what I expected.
He embraced me. He showered me with blessings and desires of my heart. He helped me run more after Him while being bisexual.
I sometimes convinced myself that I was actually straight but later I realized that God didn’t want me to be ashamed of His creation. He knit every part of me. He knew what I would like and dislike. He knew who I would be attracted to and who I wouldn’t be.
I refuse to be ashamed of part of me just because some claim that part of me is immorally wrong. God is perfect; He does not make mistakes. I am not a mistake. My sexual orientation is not a mistake. I refuse to hide or stay in the closet because this part of me is part of God’s creation just as my eyes, my nose, and the fact that I don’t like cilantro.
Okay okay I don’t go around proclaiming I don’t like cilantro so why am I throwing up my hands saying I am bisexual??
Because I’m tired of people being ashamed of this part of themselves when God created EVERY part of them. I’m tired of others trying to play the judge saying that this persons sexual orientation is wrong and needs to be changed…healed…etc.
Look at yourselves…I’m not going to insist that you straighten your hair when God made it curly…so why do you insist that I be straight when God made me bisexual?
Do I wish I was straight? Sure.
He makes NO mistakes.
I am His child just as much as you are.
God is the only one who can judge each of us for we are HIS creation.
