HELP!!!
« on: Mon Apr 06, 2015 - 13:30:36 »
I'm having a serious problem and I don't know what to do. I know the one true savior is our Lord Jesus Christ and I devote my life to him. I live to praise His name and I do my best in life to follow his values as well as trying to share his values with those who don't know or who are misinformed. Like all of us sometimes I struggle with sin and the evils that Satan has put here to tempt us. I know that homosexuality is one of those sins that will condemn a soul to eternal hellfire. And I know that even though nonbelievers will tell you that homosexuality is not a choice, my faith tells me that can't be true. Our Lord Jesus wouldn't do that to his children. It's a temptation put there by Satan. But I keep having sinful homosexual fantasies that are starting to test me. I have talked with my Pastor and I have read the verses he recommended and prayed on it daily. but the fantasies have only gotten worse. It has gotten where I am uncomfortable laying with my wife and Jesus please forgive me I have even thought of men while with her. I want to faithfully serve my Lord Jesus but I don't know what to do. I am afraid I am on a path to damnation that I can't change. Help me please.  And Praise his name.

I am praying for you, the enemy is tempting you but you have strength in knowing that the Holy Spirit is with you. God will never put more on you than you can handle. You have the power to keep rejecting, continue to be strong as long as you realize the Lord is with you, you have nothing to be worried about. God bless

Having these temptations is not a sin, nor will they exclude you from eternal life.  That is a lie from the devil.  It takes more than a temptation to sin to put us in danger of rejecting God.  You are doing well, you are struggling against your temptation, and that is pleasing to God!  As long as you struggle to be chaste you are on the right path!

I would encourage you to check out "Courage".  They are a group that will help you with this.  Obviously this will be difficult to deal with if you remain in the dark with your wife.  Pray for discernment on how you might get help.  It would really be best if you worked on this together, but perhaps that is just not something you can deal with right now.

The website is "http://couragerc.org".

Sometimes when I read post like this one~I ask myself...."Is this person just there trying to see what Christians think of this, so that he can use it agaisnt us~or does on truly desire to be delivered from such wickedness."

There is deliverance from God from all wickedness, if one truly seeks to be delivered.  ALL manner of sins can be forgiven, and grace would be given to that person who so desires to please God first.   Your desires are against nature, and you should seek God to deliver you from such wickedness, and wickedness it is. If you fear God, then prove it by crying out to him for help.  If you seek him with your whole heart, then he will be found of you. That's his promise.

Jb, what church do you belong to? You said your pastor gave you council.

Homosexuality would certainly appear to be a choice when there are celebrities that being public figures also make the news when they profess to have chosen to be homosexual.

And acting on any sinful impulse is certainly a choice as well. God's word tells us that homosexual sex is an abomination to God. In the new testament we are told that the unrepentant sexually immoral will not enter the kingdom of Heaven.

Before I suggest resources for you it is important to know when you say you are a Christian what denomination you may be affiliated with, if that applies to you at all.

Pray brother. Seek the wisdom of God. That you have a conscience about this and fear the penalty for your sin tells you that it is not right to follow your carnal lusts in this regard. That tells you God, at least in my opinion, is speaking to your heart.

I hope that no one thinks that I am being dishonest about this. Our church is a Methodist congregation. I have not shared this with many people because I'm ashamed and scared of someone finding out. I trust my pastor to keep his word. And I have prayed. Lord knows I have prayed and cried and begged Jesus to make this go away. I have always thought of myself as a devout person and I feel like He isn't listening. If He was testing me I think I have proven my power over temptation. Now I just want the thoughts to stop. It seems like no matter how hard I try or how much I beg my Lord the thoughts won't stop. Sometimes I'm afraid something might be wrong with me.

Brother, God loves you no matter what. You have accepted Christ and as such are an adopted son of God and have been bestowed his absolute grace of forgiveness for whatever sin you may do or think of doing. You need to understand that all sins are equal in the eyes of God, that is why we are given grace through the sacrifice and resurrection of his only begotten so Christ Jesus. Homosexuality is no difference than the multitude of sins listed in the new testament such as lying, fornicating, adultery ( which is merely thinking of another woman/man and not just the physical aspect).
This sin of homosexuality in the new testament is no difference than lying, being hypocritical, being deceitful, and all the rest. So if you are going to be damned to hell for homosexual tendencies, then everyone who has accepted Christ will be damned to hell for the multitude of sins that we all do on daily basis.
People need to understand what grace really means. The law is dead, if you live by the law you are judged by the law. If you accept Christ, you will not sit in the judgement seat, because that is what grace is all about. God doesn't bestow grace on those who accept his son as their saviour and then take it away.
We all need to read the new testament from front to back, and then again and again and again, until we start understanding the word in the spiritual sense and not the sense of the flesh.
Brother, i don't know what is right or wrong for you. But know that whatever your choice is, God loves you more than you will ever know and you can never be banned from heaven after accepting Christ and the grace that goes with it.
If God would banish you to hell for the sin in your mind, then we are all damned, every single Christian will be damned because as i stated above, God does not distinguish between sins, only man does that.
Good luck brother, i will pray that you find your path and continue to live in the spirit of the word.

Btw brother, take some time and read the New Testament yourself and Christ will give
you the answers you seek. The answers won't come from a pastor or a friend or a shrink
but only from a relationship with Christ himself and the word that was written
specifically for you in the New Testament.
God bless brother.

Having reached the ripe old age of 60 recently, my memory just gets worse with each passing day.

I don't recall any celebrity saying they chose to be homosexual, could you please refresh my memory and name the ones that said this. thanks.

Homosexuality is a huge jumbo sin.  Masturbation, homosexuality, contraception, abortion God hates the most. Having these sexual fantasies in your head is sin. Temptation is not sin but if you continue to think about it and have lust in your heart then it's a problem.  Do you masturbate?  Usually homosexuality evolves from masturbation and sodomy.... If you masturbate, stop it NOW....If you overcome it then the sex demons in your body will flee. I had fleets of big masturbation demons in my body when I used to masturbate....tok me 5 months to overcome, and then 3 additional months fighting these demons in my dreams...

Sex demons in your body?   ::doh::
it's true for real. There are billions and trillions of demons on earth, some of them also reside in our body. All of us have demons in our body. Some have 15 demons... Some have 150. Some drunkards and drug abusers can have as many as over 10,000... I come from experience with the demons. They appear in my dreams and tried chasing me, scare me, harass me...tempt me...set me up trap, etc  demons will come attack you when you really start to follow Jesus. Demons don't attack those that are not of Christ.  I never experienced demons until I actually walking with Jesus....you'll also get supernatural prophetic dreams. When I stopped masturbating for real this hot sexy female demon came to my dream and jumped me.....I lust over her and relieved myself... When I woke up I panicked and got scared because I fell to temptation and committed a sin of lust. I cried out to God and asked for forgiveness and asked him to rebuke these demons so I won't lose the battle next time and God listened and helped me out.  I also had this pastor who baptized me in water came to my dream and tried to engage intimate conversation with me and all of sudden he tried to kiss me. I turned my head away from and said NO! He tried again and I said No!!  Then I heard the growling sound.....

1. What bible verse says demons can posses your body esp if you are a christian and that space is filled by the holy spirit.
2. Sexual sin is one of the biggest weapons in the enemies arsenal
3. Pretty much what a man does with his penis is always a choice.
4. God warns us about sexual sin and homosexuality many places in the bible because God knows our enemy and knows how he will attack.
5. Just remember when you have those thoughts and fantasy's it is the enemy attacking and do you really want to loose to him. Many times his attacks are very subtle and he always twist the truth like homosexuality is a choice or it is natural or its natural for a man to sleep around and lust after women. I hate his lies. Nothing changes with satin. He tempted Adam and Eve in the garden by twisting what God said by saying will you truly die. Today he says you can do whatever makes you happy and its ok with God. You can be a Christian and not live for Christ but live for whatever makes you happy

The brain is like a rolodex. It whirls and stops on any thought at random. It is not a sin if one has momentary evil thoughts. It is sin only when one dwells on an evil thought that pops up and lets it master him. You have the power to give your brain another whirl and let it land on another thought, no matter how many times the evil thought comes up. Easier said than done, but it can be learned if your thoughts are really causing you pain.
