All Things Are Possible.



Back when I was a freshman in college (4 years ago), I listened to this song and prayed that God may change me. I mean, He can do the impossible, right? But I realized the point of the song is that all things are possible, but God will not grant all things, even if we think it’s for our own good.

Adjusting.

I’m still not accustomed to WordPress. But I learned how to approve comments today. If only I can change the template to something dazzling, yet serene, that would be great.

On every Christian forum I go, there’s a topic on homosexuality, so naturally, I butt in. Well, the other day, one of the lovely fundamentalists told me I’m oppressed by demons and that I need to take care of that pronto. I learned long ago you can’t pray the gay out of you, unless God grants a miracle. This is why I fear going to church – the image of people conducting an exorcism on me, when in fact I know “the gay” isn’t a result of demonic forces trying to take my soul away. I believe in Jesus, and I always will. I thanked them for their concern and never went back to that forum.

There was the typical “You’re a liar because even women think women’s bodies are beautiful”.

And “If homosexuality isn’t a choice, then how come I know a former gay man who is happily married?”

I don’t know if I’m supposed to embrace or suppress my sexuality. Some say God is love, others say following Jesus and taking up the cross mean denying ourselves. Both seem logical and right. I don’t know what to do.
