Don't Try to Go it Alone

In this enlightened age when everything is open to declaration and constant re-clarification, sexuality has not become clearer; it's become more confusing and more conflicting than ever. If the conflict between your personal understanding of morality and culture's constant redefinition of morality is creating chaos in your soul and conquering you through internal division, you're not alone.

You never have been. And needn't ever be.

How can something so productive -- sexuality -- be so destructive?

For the past few years, we, as a nation, have been busy passing laws and changing rules to clarify sexuality and erase discomfort; to make all things right in our own sight. We seek to create sameness where it should not be, avoiding the reality of God's intended creativity.

Legal definitions change -- same-sex marriage for example -- but morality remains, and for Christians, the Word of God will always stand above the laws of man. His understanding supersedes all confusion and presents clarity, no matter what dimly-lit alley the world chooses to saunter down into darkness. We change our laws; He does not. We revise our words to suit the day; His have always suited every day and always will.

Don't go it alone.

  1. I am so saddened and sorry to see this site, Thom. Thought of you today and wondered how you were doing after all of these years... many years away from when we worked together. This is where I found you. I am just about speechless... but want to somehow convey my sense of frustration and profound sorrow that you feel a human life cannot be well lived as a gay person. Being gay is not wrong. It is not a sin. It is not a choice. I cannot for the life of me fathom how anyone who believes in God also believes that God will not accept them for who they are.
