I know everyone has their own opinion about this. I personally don’t have anything against homosexuals, but I do feel that it keeps one from being close to God. If you aren’t a Christian, please do not respond, as I am only looking for opinions from those that believe Jesus is the son of God and died for our sins and that HE is the only way to Heaven. I am NOT judging those of you that aren’t Christians, but I am looking for opinions from Christians only.
I do appreciate it!
People do not choose to be gay, people are born homosexual or heterosexual.
You should love and accept your child.
What do you mean ":wants to be gay":? One can’t choose to be gay. You either are or you aren’t. I know I didn’t choose to be straight. If your child is a homosexual then there’s nothing you can do. Just accept them for who they are. Isn’t that what your messiah Jesus would do? As I recall he was pretty big on love and acceptance. If you insist on believing in a loving god then why would such a being care about ones sexual orientation? I thought he was supposed to love everyone unconditionally. Do you really think that the omnipotent creator of the universe would care one way or the other? Besides according to Christan belief isn’t god infallible and doesn’t he have a plan for everyone? If this is what you truly believe then it would seem you have nothing to worry about. Being gay can’t separate him from god if that is the case. By the way seeking answers only from like-minded individuals is often not the best way to go. In addition being so certain that your way is the only way will not serve you well in in dealing with this problem. Open your mind. There are many paths to the mountain top yet we can all still see the moon when we get there.
I was 16 when I got pregnant. I am telling you know if you let your girlfriend get an abortion you will regret it for the rest of your life if you truly love her. I wouldn’t sugest moving out together with her being 15 I would stay at home and save up money to move out when she turns 18. a baby cost a lot of money. I was on medical assistance, wic, and food stamps her father was there for us and still is and there were days when we didn’t have money for diapers because I had to stop working. I didn’t make enough money to put her day care and the waiting list for daycare vouchers would take years. I am just saying before you go and move out with eachother you have to think about a child that you will have in a few months, you guys need any love and support ypu can posibly get from your families. I hope that both of your famiies are behind you and supporting you 100 % during this big change in your lives. Just remember a baby needs love and nurture and just because the baby was an accident that is not fair to that child to be aborted. there are other options that you have if you do not want to keep the baby there are plenty of couples that can not get pregnant and would do anything for a baby. not saying to give the baby up for asoption but please do not abort this child it was not there decision to come into this world it was yours and your girlfriends. just remember you would not be here if your parents would have done that to you. I wish the best of luck to you and your gf.
Being ":gay":, stealing, lying, coveting – they are are all symptoms which are typical of human behaviour. That is, every person on the earth [non-Christian] deciding for the self what is right and what is wrong (called being independent). Should your son, decide to follow the gay lifestyle, there is nothing you nor I can do about it since it his arbitrary choice. Adam &: Eve did it (followed Satan’s lead and ate of ":Tree of the knowledge of good &: evil":) and severed their relationship in Paradise [Eden] with God. Jesus is the ":door": back to that relationship and until your son decides for him self, that he wants to have that relationship with God, it is best to allow him to continue to exercise his arbitrary ":right": to independence and the choices there-in.
The term ":close to God": is better rendered ":a spiritual relationship": with God. Christians prior to his or her conversion (at least quite a few), had to travel that road of independence – experience it, to come to the state of mind of surrender to God to enable that spiritual relationship.
JESUS and Doctors kind of help each other. Although JESUS needs no Help. But it wouldn’t hurt to find a Good Child Physiologist. And have him talk to the Boy.
And you being a Woman of Faith! Pray to JESUS for guidance, And HE will help you. Being a Christian? You know the alternative?

There is more Joy in JESUS in 24 hours, Than there is in the World in 365 Days. I have tried them both.(ME TO)
Your son needs to repent, homosexuals don’t inherit the kingdom of God. And for the people who call themselves ":Christians": and are accepting of homosexuality, they are following only what they want, they don’t want the truth, they are living a lie. Don’t pick and choose what you want to believe, if you believe only certain things said in the bible, you don’t really believe anything, because God’s word is TRUTH!!!
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NKJV)
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,[a] nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

Well? As my son was growing up, He was saved young. And in training him as he was growing older, I was alerted to the things that try to train children to be sexually immoral. It is the hidden agenda in some cartoons. So? I didn’t like him to watch certain cartoons. And I can sense a cartoon that promotes homosexuality. So I would change the channel during those.
And some grade schools promote this or witchcraft or sorcery in their library book readings, etc… So I would pray about these things.
And another attack on our children is that they may be abused sexually by someone. Or harrassed by other children who keep saying they are gay. Now some children think they are gay because of their personality. When really there is a gift in the personality that some accuse of being gay &: is a gift, not homosexual at all. Many gifted children are a threat to the devil with their gift. So the devil tries to get a strong hold in their life &: also to get the child to think they are gay &: especially at the age of accountability or decision, the devil gets its claws out more so.
And so I would try to tell my child to stay away from the pocket monsters (poki mons). Because I saw this as micky mouse ‘sorcery’. And so also the devil can get a strong hold &: it will cost me money. My son disobeyed me &: ended up playing those on line sorcery games at my expense. As his checking account was in the negatives &: would increase with the $20 fee for each transaction that made the account more negative.
Iniquities are expensive. And in the 10 commandments, the iniquities go on to the 3rd &: 4th generations of those who hate God. So my son had a choice to obey God &: stay away from sorcery, or to disobey behind my back. And that is what he did for a while &: suffered with his grades, sleep &: financially because of it.
If you son thinks he is gay or wants to be that way, It is because of what others have accused him of or the world subliminally trained him to be this way or he is being disobedient &: hating God in some area. And he chooses to believe the lies of the world rather than believe in Gods Word. All types of sexual fornication is disobeying God &: so is an iniquity passed on to the 3rd &: 4th generation of those who hate God. And this is realized more fully at age of accountability (different for everyone). You son has a choice to love &: obey God, or to choose to hate God &: break the 10 Commandments. Idolatry or having other gods before the LORD God is what really is chosing to hate God. So sorcery. And you should just let your son know. He might get mad, because he loves his online sorcery games, I don’t know. But whatever it is that is opening a door to the devil.
So that is getting to the root of the problem. And pray for your son to find out his high calling in Christ Jesus. Pray that he make goals &: write his plans &: give them to the Lord in prayer. That he understand that if he chooses God, all things will work out for the good for those who trust in the Lord.
What makes you think someone can’t be gay and Christian. I think you’d find a lot about yourself, and preconceived notions, if you did a little research.
Don’t be surprised if the majority of the opinions from christians you’ll get here is that he is choosing to sin against the christian god.
I’m not a Christian. And you make me glad I’m not. I’m not dedicated to any organized religion for this reason. Why would you need opinions on someone elses life? It’s that persons life and he or she was born a beautiful person just like you. Open your eyes and love everyone for who they are, especially your own child.
And, just FYI, you can believe in Jesus and God and not be a Chrisitan
I don’t know. It’s a sinful lifestyle, the bible is clear on that. But it’s not a sin worse than any others. All you can do is let him know it’s sinful, and let him know you love him no matter what. Just like any other sin, if a person wants to cling to it, it will cause tension with the person telling them it’s wrong. It’s rough. I feel for you. My daughter is promiscuous, and I love her through it, but she knows where I stand on it and what God says about it. I can only pray that her conscience not be totally seared and that she accepts Jesus as Lord. She hasn’t come around yet, and maybe never will, but I’ve accepted that I don’t control her, and I have told her the truth about it, and I love her, and she must go her own way.
I have peace mixed with my sorrow. So to speak.
