A Prayer for Gay Christians
(by Josh Thomas)
Holy God, the One beyond gender, who has made us Lesbian and Gay in your own image: Give us daily knowledge that you love us just as we are; that no matter how much others may hate and fear us, we are yours. Grant that we may treat ourselves, and all our brothers and sisters, with as much love as you have shown to us. Bless your Church that it may grow to have one mind and heart as large as yours; through Jesus Christ, your gentle Son, who bore for us the violence of a sinful, broken world. Amen.
I cant even begin to assail the theological error contained in this prayer.
FOR THE BEST USE OF OUR SEXUALITY*
O Lord, you give us life in our bodies, and enable us to share passion and joy uniting in love. Guide us in the best use of our sexuality. Help us to recognize and honor our partners full humanity. Teach us to put the other person first; show us all that love can become. Protect us when we are vulnerable, open us to greater sharing, and bring us ever closer to you and to each other; through Jesus Christ, who triumphed in his body to become our Savior. Amen.
Lord, is it okay to call you Big Dude? If so, will you bless every Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered kid on this planet? And our Straight friends too? Can you and I hang out together? Im not ashamed of Jesus, Im just scared. Its so hard to fit in, to find a safe place. But they say youre the hippest Dude of all, so feel free to send me a download anytime; I promise to answer right back. You are so Awesome! Bless my parents, my school and my friends, and help us all figure out this crazy world. Thank you for being so cool. Now I guess I should say Amen, huh? Thank you, God.
I dont think an actual teenager wrote this
FOR OUR ARMED FORCES**
O Lord God of Hosts, stretch forth, we pray, your almighty arm to strengthen and protect the armed forces of our country, especially those who are Gay or Lesbian. Support them in the day of battle, and in the time of peace keep them safe from all evil; endue them with courage and loyalty; and grant that their superiors and all our citizens may value their inestimable service; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
especially those that are Gay or Lesbian. It is all about sexuality after all.
I guess these "prayers" are supposed to tug at our heart strings? Consider mine un-tugged.
Like you, I do not believe that a teenager wrote that prayer.
My first reaction is of ridicule, but my, how these people must agonize in confusion and guilt...and hope for love and forgiveness.
Do these people ever think about anything but SEX?
All ye shall worship the movie Brokeback Mountain! Kneel to the media onslaught! See the cowboys in love! See the beauty of cowboy booty sex and poopie mouth by the campfire! It's all so natural! /lotsa sarcasm off
Blackout of the soul.
From what Hell did you dredge that up?
Homosexual Agenda Ping.
Kind of easing back into the job as "ping host". I looked in vain for the words "Onion" or "Scrappleface" (or whatever it is). Apparently this is serious. Took my appetite away.
Better if people who want to reject God's message and instructions just make up their own little "religion". It's vilely offensive for them to make up false prayers and act pious while glorying in the most deviant of behaviors which are in direct opposition to every holy book in the world.
Freepmail me and DirtyHarryY2K if you want on/off this pinglist.
"Better if people who want to reject God's message and instructions just make up their own little "religion"."
I think the Bible is clear that in the end times the followers of the Antichrist will be very religious. There are a number of verses that make references to that.
This is just the kind of worship they will offer up to their "god".
I think I'd rather not on this one.
uh...isnt that the ENTIRE issue concerning homosexuals?
Click through and ask Brad Drell!
I watched the trailer for Broken Back Mountain and I didn't realize it was a comedy.... I laughed my ass off. It is just a comedy; I thought it might be a drama.
He said be fruitful, not be a fruit.
"He said be fruitful, not be a fruit."
Now THAT is funny.
Bumper sticker time!
Very few people think "I am bad and irreligious".
Real saintly and godly people are very humble. They certainly aren't proud of faults and sins.
I used to think the same thing (that homosexuals think only about sex, because that's the overall message they present) but now what I think it is is that they think only about A CULTURE OF SEX, about SEXUALITY as personal and group identity.
In that sense, yes, they "think only about sex," but it's now become a CULTURAL INSISTENCE by homosexuals, as to some cultural, social "order" of sexuality that they are trying to craft into an actual "religion" -- of religious proportions among their numbers.
Thus, the recent group-think-message to everyone else that homosexuality is something "God made" -- it's like saying God made evil, so let's all embrace and be evil and thank God for evil accordingly.
It's very twisted thinking and certainly a corruption of Judeo-Christian morality and theology itself, and has NO Biblical reference nor support.
It's entirely humanistic, "man made" as to fervor and relies upon a NON Biblical perspective to defend, explain itself, and is, therefore, quite entirely corrupt and abhorrent within a Scriptural perspective, and I do believe, in God's eyes.
You are so completely right.
