ARE YOU PUTTING YOUR TRUST IN MAN OR GOD?
I’m a healthy woman with a sexual appetite, but I would NEVER discuss this in Church. It’s taboo to even think about it. We talk about reaching out to young people and mentoring them because they are labeled “at risk”. How did we get here? Teenage pregnancy, AIDS, STD’s, homosexuality, rape, and molestation….the list goes on. We went from expecting teachers to raise our children to looking to the Church. Where are the parents in this? My Mother has a great friend who is an awesome preacher and is openly gay. Is that a contradiction in terms? I don’t think so. Only GOD can judge, but we all can LOVE. There is a singer that I am crazy about. The minute he came out of the closet these so called “church people” turned on him. There is no denying this young man has anointing and a calling for the ministry.
I personally think that most of these discussions need to happen in the home, but we need to talk openly in the Church as well about EVERYTHING! Let’s stop hiding. There’s no reason to pretend. Straight, gay, bi-sexual, I still LOVE you with the LOVE of GOD. Right now we have young people so confused about who they are and their sexuality that it’s enough to drive anyone insane. How do you purport, “Jesus loves you” when so many have been molested in the Church by entrusted members? Women are desperately seeking male role models in the Church and unknowingly putting their children in the hands of their perpetrators. Years ago Rae Lewis-Thornton spoke at my home church and when she begged those in attendance to have a frank and honest conversation about sex she was practically ostracized right then and there. My job is to start the conversation.
If not now then when?
