Recommended Posts

Blessings Iam4rgiven

    Welcome to Worthy,you truly need support right now and prayers & also encouragement,Glory to God that He has lead you here to us,,,,,,,,I do believe you will be Blessed with Wisdom & Understanding through this Worthy Family by the Power of the Holy Spirit the ,,,,but first let me explain a couple of things to you so that you will get the most replies & many responses,the more the better

     This is the "Seeker Forum" ,here a moderator must review all replies before they are posted so that all said will be in accordance to the Word of God & appropriate as this is the place where the "seeker" or "unbeliever " can ask questions.......so the responses can take a while to receive them,,,,,,

       Everyone must have 5 posts before they can start a thread of their own,,,,,,,When you start oout here we would like to get to know you so we have a "Welcome Forum",,,,let me suggest that you go there & introduce yourself so that everyone can meet,greet & welcome you,,,,then simply respond to your welcomes & you will have 5 posts before you know it,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,THEN you can start a thread (on what you discussed here) in a more appropriate forum where you will get the most traffic(Perhaps"Am I alone" or "Need Advice") Oh & even put in a "Prayer Request",the prayers of the faithful availeth much.......

      I do want you to get the best advice & support that you can,,,,,,,we are here for you

 

 

Now,you are 100% correct,your daughter was not born "this way",,,,God Almighty,our Loving Father,does not make mistakes..........I would be very unhappy to hear if my child was bound by this spirit just like you are,,,,,,,,,& she is very wrong about thinking"How can God hate me",,,,,,He does not hate her,He abhors what she does,her sinful lifestyle,,,,,,,,it is abominable to Him,that does not mean that He does not love the child He created,,,,,,,,,She needs help,she needs prayer,she needs deliverance & she needs to know Gods Truth,,,,,,,,she has been greatly deceived,,,,,,,

    No Mom,you do not need to ask God to change you,,,,there is nothing wrong with you,you do love your daughter unconditionally,you cannot & should not accept her CHOICE,,,,and yes,it is the same as if she were a fornicater,a thief,an adulterer & so on,it is SIN

Does she know about Jesus?Perhaps she has heard but she does not KNOW HIM,,,,,He is the One to make her anew,to forgive,to reconcile to our Father

    I am praying for you ,you are weak right now & this is the time you can be made strong because He Who is in you is GREATER than he who is in the world,,,,,this is the time you must increase your Faith by hearing the Word of God,now is the time for you to cast your cares on Jesus(His yoke is easy & His burden is light)       If you are not firmly rooted & grounded then what will you display by your walk?You can have Peace,Comfort & Joy through these circumstances and you can love your child without agreeing with the choice she is making,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Well,there is lots more to talk about ,I hope to encourage you to post this topic elsewhere & I will gladly talk more with you & help in every way I can,,,,,God Bless you,& I pray your daughter's heart is softened & convicted by Gods Holy Spirit,that He draw her unto Himself                               With love-in Christ,Kwik

I'm a mother of a 16 year old daughter and she just told me that she's gay.  I'm devastated to a point where I cried every night, could'nt sleep or eat.  I love my daughter very much but I have a hard time accepting this. My husband on the other hand is more accepting. I didn't get mad at her when she told me this.  I was calm.  She believes that she's born this way and that this is who she is. I, on the other hand believe that it's a choice. A lifestyle choice. I believe that nobody is born gay...just like nobody is born a murderer, a gambler, an adulterer.  I explained to her that having sexual desires with the same sex is not a sin unless you act upon it. She then told me that she believes that being gay is not a sin. Her exact word is "How could God hate me if this is the way I was born? God supposed to love everyone". I'm really hurt by this and just today i caught myself questioning God. I even asked God that if this is something she's born with then I need help for him to change me...to make me accept my daughter unconditionally...but if this is something she is choosing to do, then please help my daughter to change, to guide her to the right path, to open her eyes to the truth before it's too late.  She's a good daughter.  She does good at school, she doesn't drink or do drugs, she's still a virgin ( she's not sexually active).  I really don't believe that she's gay because she had one bf before and it lasted for almost 4 months. I'm just so confused right now.  I need prayers...and I am asking God to guide her with the choices she'll make. Please I need help.  I'm so depressed right now I don't know what to do or how to handle this situation. Please help.

One of the things in your foundation of thinking is flawed:

I believe that nobody is born gay...just like nobody is born a murderer, a gambler, an adulterer.

Yes we are born sinners and the sin we will do... it is the way of the world! This is a salvation issue where she

needs to be born of a new heart and capacity to think, desire, work differently. The Love you need to show her 'IS'

God's Love and that is not acceptance of her choice of sin but the gentle, prayerful, loving rebuke of the sin she

has chosen as okay... certainly we pray for you in this but more importantly you must draw near to our Lord and in

brokenness of spirit and a broken and contrite heart -The Lord will require this of you

Ps 51:17

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken

and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

KJV

and as this living sacrifice to God you will be foundationed in this promise

Ps 34:18-19

18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;

and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are

the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth

him out of them all.

KJV

The reward is before you- it is your daughter standing at the brink of destruction...

My prayer is that your daughter see what sin does to a pure heart- that of The Son

on the cross this brings repentance and why all sin is to be disdained and avoided

at all cost this brings the need of salvation! Love, Steven

Ok Omegaman, I bow to your precision here on the parent thing  ,but I do think that on observing very young children  ,

 

each of us has a particular weakness, which can be exploited by those whose souls are less than pure in their motivations .

 

Those who make money ,those who need to have power over others etc.

Hello Iam4given,

Many people out there believe that people are born gay and that is not true. The gay agenda has been pushed by the government and is accepted by so-called Christians. Many people who are gay, do not even believe in a higher power. Being gay is a choice and that choice goes against God. The reason that is an abomination to HIM is that nothing comes from it. People cannot have children if they are gay. When God spoke to Adam and Eve, Noah and his family after the flood; he told them to go forth and multiply (have children). People who are gay cannot do that! 

I will pray for you and your family!

(Lev 18:22)  Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Proverbs 22:6.  

She is still young so I believe her mind could change.  I would ask her about what type of future she would like to have (i.e. kids, wedding day) and see if she's really thought it out.  If she does eventually want kids, I'd explain to her that she' be denying her kids of everything her father has done for her.  I think you've done a great job of being understanding.  Keep praying and hope that her heart changes.

      We had recently here as Worthy had a spirited discussion about homosexuality and discrimination in the church. The nature of the discussion did not allow for too much thoroughness in related issues, and the theology around them. I was cruising YouTube this morning, and coincidentally, this topic came up in the recommended for you suggestions, probably because I have watched some Walter Martin videos.
      Anyway, I found them informational and helpful, in understanding some of the issues and background to these topics. There are several views represented, and they are moderated, so it does not get out of control. So, for you consideration are the following four videos:

      If someone’s gay, can they pray it away, or ask the lord to help them? If not, what can they do?
    • By FindingHim
      Hi there! I am going to start off by giving a bit of a backstory, and please hear me out by reading all of this because I am in dire need right now.
       
      I grew up in a lovely home with Baptist parents who attended church every Sunday. However, I hit very traumatic times at about 7 years old, and now I am 16, going on 17, and my life is healing from the trauma of divorced parents, dealing with calling defax on my own mother for emotional, verbal, and sometimes physical abuse, hating my father for years due to my mother calling him unworthy every chance she got- only to find that my father did everything he could to make me realize he meant no harm, and all the mental issues which came with these life experiences. Shortly after turning 12, four years into my nearly 10-year real-life conflict, I found myself falling far from God. Although I had become fully saved according to the Baptist faith and believed with all my heart that God was my savior and my all at age 10, I fell far from Him only two years later. Two years later, at 12, and hardly 12 at that, I text my friend late one summer night.
      "I don't know that I believe in God anymore," I sent her, crying my eyes out because all I needed right then was someone to pull me back to God and say that I needed to hold on. I desperately needed someone to grab my ears and pull me up saying, "Hello!! Jesus is alive! He is alive! And He loves you more than you'll ever comprehend!"
      But, the reality was far from this. My friend responds less than a minute later.
      "I am an Atheist."
      My heart dropped at the message. But... strangely enough, it later was found with relief. I felt ACCEPTANCE for falling from Him! It sounds crazy because it is. I researched for a long time, mainly in the wrong places, and I found myself to identify as an Atheist. This lasted for years, all the way until a month or so ago to be frank. I am going to be 17 in July and going into the 12th grade next year, and I believe this all happened in the summer of going into 6th or 7th grade, which would have put me at 11 or 12. So for 5, possibly 6, years I have been very lost and falling blind of God. I fell into believing I was transgender, from female to male, to believing I was gay and dating a girl almost a full year. Many, many tragic things followed this initial start of trauma when my parents got a divorce at 7 years old.
       
      Now, having all that said... I still feel a strong incomplete pit in my life, this being my relationship with God. I still question my sexuality today. I believe that being abused for all those years led me to believe I was homosexual because beforehand, I never EVER questioned my sexuality. I was your typical "boy-crazy" little girl who would go to their mom after school and say, "Guess what mommy! [Enter name here] talked to me today! I was so nervous!" I can tell you confidently now that I know I am a beautiful, straight female who deserves just as much as everyone else. In my heart, I feel that. However, I hesitate to answer so confidently in person because it takes denying my past conflictions to find my true self deep within me that, yes, I am that person. For a long time I denied this person that I was because of the many times my mother would tell me that I wasn't her daughter, I wasn't what she wanted, and I was a mistake through and through. I believe truly, within my heart, that abuse can cause lifetime problems such as this. Abuse, especially that in childhood, does not just affect your personality, your social life, and your way of coping with life situations. Abuse affects your lifestyle, your beliefs, and all the critical things of yourself.
       
      I am stuck. My ex-best friend and I started talking recently. We grew up together and shortly after I went from a true Christian to Atheist, we fell apart from one another. In the past month, we found each other via social media and I have come to find, not to my surprise, that she is still very faithful and connected to God. Even when we were little and very close, I was inspired by her connection with God and trust in Him, despite our different beliefs. She was raised Apostolic Pentecostal. I was raised Baptist. However, now that we have reconnected, I have caught her up with everything that happened to me in the past years that we haven't talked. She amazes me still at her immaculate trust in God. She is now involved in leading many youth groups to teach the Bible to younger kids, as well as attending her own youth group herself. This makes me intrigued in her beliefs since I am currently not under any official belief besides that in which God does indeed exist. My mother is not much in the picture anymore, so I have free reign to explore all sorts of Christianity that I please without fear of being bashed or shunned for doing anything other than Baptism.  I have been looking into Apostolic Pentecostal all day, trying to actually understand what the belief is all about compared to Baptism, since that is what I know best, and it makes so much more sense to me compared to what I grew up with. Is there anybody who is an Apostolic Pentecostal that could please help guide me and help me in understanding the beliefs? I am very intrigued by this way of praise and church-going. So please, if you read all of this, which I hope you did because it contributes so much to my reasoning behind this, and you are an Apostolic Pentecostal, please give me information on your beliefs and ways of praising and keeping faith. I am finding God again, and I do not plan on losing Him this time. Not again.

      Is there anything wrong with our current model of doing Church? Could there be improvements made? 
      Are the following elements biblical? 
      1. Tithing
      2. Pastor salaries
      3. Million-dollar church buildings
      4. Seminary-trained pastors
      5. Church incorporation 
      Le me know what your thoughts are! 
       
      Thanks

      Description from the ministry on this young woman's testimony:

      "Powerful Coming Out Story -  Emily spent 7 years living out her same-sex attractions while being outspoken about God’s acceptance of her lifestyle. After her engagement with her female partner ended, she was invited to a Bible study. This weekly examination of the holiness of God challenged her day after day until her life completely changed. It is a powerful testimony that calls the homosexual community not to heterosexuality but to holiness. Emily’s story lovingly addresses the heart of the matter: that homosexuality is only one sin among many that manifests itself within a sinful heart. Only by the grace and mercy of God can we be transformed.

      Regardless of what you have done in your life, redemption is provided to you through Jesus Christ. Just like Emily, even if you have sinful desires and affections, God died for you. He can make you a new creation and save you from a terrible fate. God is rich in mercy and full of great love, and He provided a way out. The narrow road to salvation requires that you call sin what it is, repent of it, and trust that Christ’s death and resurrection is sufficient to atone for the punishment you deserve. If any man is in Christ, he is a NEW creation. Unless this happens for you, your sinful desires will always drive your actions and shape your interpretation of Scripture. As culture influences the church, even Christians are deceived on this topic. However, for the person who claims to be gay and a Christian, understand that it is not possible for Christians to remain in willful, unrepentant sin. 1 John 3:9 says, “No one who is born of God makes a practice of sin, for God’s seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God.” God's message has always and will always involve crucifying the flesh with its passions and desires and living for Christ."

      Gal 5:24-25  And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.  (25)  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
