JESUS IS NOT YOUR BOYFRIEND!
I thank GOD that my Mother introduced me to GOD and I have a personal relationship with Jesus. The Word of GOD says no one comes to the FATHER but by the Son. GOD’s Word does not change. People change. Even circumstances will change, but thankfully GOD’s Word stays true.
Go to any church, small or large and you’ll see the women outnumber the men at least 3 to 1. That’s probably too conservative an estimate. Find a woman who is a single parent in the congregation and you won’t go far. A lot of young women have gotten “saved” after having a child out of wedlock. Many sought the refuge of the church after a failed marriage. But more use the sanctity of their relationship with GOD as an excuse to not have any type of relationship.
I believe that my faith has kept me sane, but so many use their faith to hide from the world. I John 5:4 For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
I’ve met many women who are completely devoted to their church and their children to the exclusion of all else. Being a woman and a Christian doesn't have to be a conflict in terms. Steve Harvey tells the joke about if we weren’t meant to be sexy then where did all these little Christians come from? He has a point.
I’ve felt attacked when I have chosen to acknowledge the sensual and sexual part of myself. One woman told me I was going straight to hell when I told her Jesus was not her boyfriend. One thing we are never honest about in church is sex. We don’t talk about it. We don’t speak about it. And we certainly don’t teach about it. That’s the problem. I do believe that sex is a sacred part of a marriage and should be within that framework. However; to assume that we can wait until marriage and not acknowledge that we have sexual feelings is unreal. The repercussions are unwanted pregnancies, teenage pregnancies, sexual confusion and last but not least, sexually transmitted diseases. Oh, let’s not forget the countless pedophiles that quietly reside in the church. Talk about a wolf in sheep’s clothing. We have generations of damaged people who were molested or violated in the church or by someone in the church. Because we quickly explain that Jesus is our boyfriend and curtail our children from being taught sex education we have hundreds, no thousands that suffer in silence.
If you have a sexual feeling or a sexual thought you are taught to pray it away. To deny is supplication unto GOD or at least we believe. Not true. GOD hears our prayers and doesn’t require perfection but submission. It all sounds crazy to me. So if you’re gay can Jesus be your boyfriend too? When you put it in that context it contradicts everything we’ve ever learned from the church and the life we are committed to living as Christians.
As long as there are children suffering unspeakable sexual abuse, as long as there is homosexuality that is never discussed, as long as there are single mothers that have not received a high school diploma or received a wedding ring; Jesus cannot be your boyfriend. It’s just not that simple.
