Did God make me gay?
Suddenly it really matters.
It’s not because I need to feel that being gay is legitimate. It’s not that I need permission to be me.
It is because being a Christian, I want to trust my whole life to God. I want to live a congruent life. I don’t want to section off bits of my being and say: I follow one set of principles here and another set of principles there.
And being a gay Christian means I need to be able to trust my relationships to God’s hands. If God made me gay, I can presume that, following His will, I should eventually find a man and have a happy and fulfilling relationship. If God didn’t make me gay, presumably no such relationship is in store for me.
(There is a third alternative: that God made me gay and still doesn’t want me to have a relationship. That’s a whole other question…)
Can I follow God and still seek a partner? Or is that diverging from His plan?
