Ex Gays are Not In Battle With Gays and Lesbians

Ex Gays are Not In Battle With Gays and Lesbians

I think about how some of us get into little spats or down right drag fights over homosexuality. I have to admit I have felt this way and have probably not been as compassionate as I could have to those who don't agree that being gay is against God's will.

What I had to realize and others should too is this is really not our fight. Its God's battle. We as ex-homosexuals are here to tell of the goodness of God and how He can save us from our sins. Homosexuality is one of those sins. The bible says: "The wages of sin is death". When people who are homosexual or others who defend them don't agree with the scriptures, we need not fight about it. Every person who was once homosexual knows the lifestyle. They know how it all started for them. They know in some ways why it started. Also, many will admit they knew it was wrong to be gay.

In my case, I grew up in Catholic school but I never heard anyone speak on homosexuality. I just knew it was not right in God's eyes. Now, knowing is one thing and doing is another as I eventually did live the lifestyle I professed was wrong as a school age child.

So, when I was homosexual, no one could tell me different about my life. I didn't want to hear it and didn't want to change though I was not completely happy nor was I completely fulfilled. Satan knows how to engage us just enough so we don't change but because he can't fill our spirits completely like God can, we still experience emptiness. I have spoken to many ex homosexuals who state they did not know what to do but stayed in the lifestyle because they knew nothing else or too ashamed to leave.

Ex homosexuals know the pain and agony that homosexuals do not want to admit. We were there. We know it all. The difference in a homosexual and an ex homosexual seems obvious but there's more to it. Homosexuals are content at this time in the lifestyle. They don't see themselves doing anything different and no one can tell them otherwise. Many of them feel they were born this way because the world has pushed this phenomenon. Many will argue tooth and nail that they do not need to change and can love who they want. They don't want to suppress how they feel.

Now, many ex-homosexuals have felt the same things as well. We lived in our sin as well and was comfortable enough to do what we wanted too. But now that ex homosexuals have reached out to God and accepted Him and His love for them, they know the truth. We came to a point in life where we were miserable, confused or suicidal or all of the above. And believe it or not, many homosexuals will get to this point but we all do it in our own time. To become an ex homosexual, one has to be 'sick and tired of being sick and tired'. Ex homosexuals were no longer happy or comfortable with themselves or life and wanted a way out.

God is that way out and you can call for His help right now and He will save you where you are. There's no time to lose. We are not promised tomorrow and we all want to be sure we make it to heaven with Him. Please do not believe the lie that God loves homosexuality. God loves the homosexual but not the sin. He loves every single person on this earth but it is up to us to want to live for Him. And why wouldn't we want to? God is so loving and compassionate. He loves us even when we don't love Him.

So ex-homosexuals are not in a battle with homosexuals. We are passionate about helping those who want out of the lifestyle. That truly is our mission. We love homosexuals just as they are. We were once turned away by family, friends or the church too. We just want them to feel and live in God's goodness because He is so good to us.

God Bless.

If you are struggling with homosexuality and want a way out, don't believe the negative hype. You CAN be delivered from being gay, God will do it for you as you come to Him with a open and humble heart. Please visit us True Ex-Gay Talk page to request an appointment to speak with T. Marie.
