One of the questions I seem to get asked more than anything is how I can be both Christian and bisexual. ‘Oh, you’re Christian? But I thought you were gay?’ is the usual reaction.
Yes, I’m Christian.
No, I’m not gay. I’m bisexual and married to an amazing woman.
No, I don’t think the two are a contradiction in terms.
My general response is along the lines of God created me the way He saw fit and He loves me. I mostly tend to feel sorry for people who judge me based on who I love and pray for them to be more aware of the love that surrounds all of us.
I have never felt unloved by God. I have never felt alone. He sees my actions, he feels my emotions, my pain – sees me striving for greatness – when no one else can or will ever know. I find truth in the innate desire to never feel alone, to fall in love, to live happy, to become what one dreams to achieve.
If all those subjective reasons to believe in God mean to you that I’m delusional – it’s what people put a word and meaning to feelings they can’t describe, to hopes they can’t share. These are things that are deeply engraved into a person’s soul. The truth is – no one has ever seen God, and no one can produce him. It’s a risky belief for some because God can’t be produced. This is when people build faith and fuel it with going to church, reading the Bible, praying, serving others.
However, when one seeks to know if God exists – something incredible happens. When one receives knowledge that God is real, one can never deny (even under penalty of death) that God is real. I takes a sincere dedication to live that way.
