In my opinion, based on teaching of the OHCAC and learned experience referencing the work of Dr. Nicolosi…and he says…
“The most important message we can offer,” Nicolosi says, “is that there is no such thing as a ‘gay child’ or a ‘gay teen.’ We are all designed to be heterosexual. Confusion about gender is primarily a psychological condition, and to some extent, it can be modified.”
The OHCAC says that there are “male and female He created them” and there are those that struggle with same sex attraction…using “homosexuality”…“homosexual tendencies” and “homosexual acts” as descriptors.
There can be no such thing as a “gay Christian”…it is a non-sequitor…however we find in the world those that agree and disagree uniting as Christian…
There exists…this…the gay Christian network…without a teaching Church there is a statement of faith
We believe that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Christians are full participants in God’s kingdom, and that the ways of holiness and the ways of sinfulness are equally available to them as to others. Recognizing this, we strive to live holy lives: turning to prayer, Scripture, and the leading of the Holy Spirit to discern God’s will.
We affirm the need for the Body of Christ to be united in service to God. To that end, we recognize that personal conviction plays a part in many of the specific elements of Christian practice. We affirm that love and respect is owed to each member of this community as brothers and sisters in Christ, and this despite differences in personal conviction that will encompass questions involving sex, intimate relationships and the “Great Debate.”
When it comes to gay Christians, there’s one question that causes more debate than any other: Does God bless gay relationships? Or are gay Christians called to lifelong celibacy?
On this site there are accepted debates with those that agree and disagree…as there is not magesterium it is what I think and you think…and we unite under disagreement…
At GCN, we have members on both sides of this “great debate,” and some who just aren’t sure. And though this issue is hotly debated among Christians worldwide, we’ve decided not to debate it here. However, in the interest of discussion and dialogue about this very important subject, two of our members have written opposing essays expressing their very different points of view.
By one man, sin entered the world…we are all disordered and by one man we were made righteous…but to be “gay” is to deny that righteousness. To be gay is to accept the agenda and the lifestyle…to be Christian is to deny ourselves and the “gay” does not do that. There is no need to identify as “gay”
