Yours is the voice of experience and wisdom. I feel I always learn something from you. Your story is such an important one, your viewpoint really matters. I hope there are homosexual men and women who hear you and really hear you, and repent. It is really heartbreaking to imagine a young man going there to find the attention and love he should have gotten from his own father. So many fathers walk away from their children, and look what that can do. Thank you again Joseph. God bless you and keep you. Please take care of yourself. Kabir October 15, 2018 at 8:12 am Joseph has some great insights on gay life. The chaste way, though difficult, might be the only way to real happiness for gay people. However I take issue with flaky theories like ‘distant father/dominant mother’. Not true for me or the dozens of people who I know at least. Maybe it’s true for some people though. I see ‘gay’ as an inborn defect, a congenital abberation…I don’t harbor false hopes that deep deep inside I’m actually straight. Too old for that nonsense now. For reasons unknown to me, the lord gave me this cross – I have to bear it somehow. NG October 19, 2018 at 10:04 pm Dear Kabir, I respectfully disagree with the idea that ‘the Lord gave me this cross’. It is very clear in the Bible that God is not tempted by evil, and that every good gift comes from Him – He does not give people something that He Himself calls abomination. We have many frailties and weaknesses (and inborn temptations towards different sins) because of the Fall. Thank God, He gave His Son Jesus to rescue us from our sins, and He is your hope and comfort as well. Blessings and love your way. Comments are closed.
