Re: Coming Out Celibate

Finding out someone is homosexual often explains a lot about the relationship and that person but it certainly isn't a reason to no longer associate with him.  I avoided contact with my ex-husband because he was not nice to me, not because he was gay. 

The kids and I always prayed for him and said "There is always hope until he is dead."  Well, he is dead now and we saw that relating to him as father and friend probably made a difference in his life and he died in the arms of the church even though he may not have ever repented of his disordered behaviors.  But that is for God to sort out not for us. 

Many factors lead up to a person "discovering" they are homosexual and God is just and merciful.  For many, it was a painful upbringing and perhaps culpability is diminished for some.  The cross they carry has the grace they need and we can always help them carry it.

Stay informed
