I appreciate your up front testimony....

I always will be gay.
How do you know that God won't send an angel, a dream, or someone into your life to show you otherwise???
God NEVER changes but man can....esp when it comes to OBEYING God....
God can prick your heart/conscience to change in a second...
Many people deplore hard preaching that may prick their consciences, but rather cry:
Isaiah 30:10
10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
They demand <smooth things> that will lull them into a spiritual sleep.
To those who are guilty of some sin that sin needs to be pointed out and specifically condemned when there is need.
As sin separates us from God.
Tony....you are 'living according to the flesh' vs.'living in the Spirit'....reason often vanishes when weighed against lust and self-gratification.
Galatians 5:19-21
19 ~~~The acts of the flesh are obvious:~~~ sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;
20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions
21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Think about it!
I know God won't send me an angel or a dream to the contrary for because:

1. Why wouldn't He have already done so by now? What would He wait for?
2....for the same reason I know God won't send an angel to change my dog into a cat: He made the dog for a purpose, and that purpose has not changed. Can He do it? Of course. Will He? Of course not. Why would He?

Please do not mischaracterize me. I have always obeyed God. I have never been ruled by lust.

If I were ruled by lust, I would cheat on my husband. If I am so immoral, why don't I do that? If I have so little self-control, why not? Why doesn't he do the same?

Because we are not "in lust," we fell in love and got married before God til death do us part.

You, like Laci, make so many presumptions - and you're wrong. I read these paragraphs about people who don't want to hear what God has to say, etc.- that in no way resembles my life. You make it sound like we have drunken orgies. I'm sure there are people out there who are led around by their sex organs, or who are alcoholics, drug addicts, etc.- that life is not mine. I am not addicted to my husband. We have a very nice, tame life. We do not do wrong things.

The fact that you can't believe that because of something you've read and attribute to God is truly crazy. I will put my real life experience with God against your interpretation of a misinterpreted book any day, in good conscience, with no fear.

HELLOOOOO..... open up your ears.... you are sinning with your arrogant condemnations of others.
Humilityy isn't doubting your faith it is recognizing God has a relationship with all his children. You are NO better than anyone Else, sinner.

Some time back, my (autistic) son found out that I was planning a menu that he did not like. He warned me that if I did not cook what he wanted, he was going to reconstitute the Nazi army and the Soviet army and unite them under his banner and defeat me.
Your threat is just as meaningless, just as childish, but not nearly as cute.
was it effective?

And neither you nor I can determine who, how or when God will establish a relationship with someone. I have a realtionship and believing as I do that God's grace is waiting for all I faithfully believe those who seek God will find him.
