So let me explain-
I'm a Christian, or at least I think I am. At this point I don't really know. I'm just having a really hard time keeping my faith in God, and I need some help. I think this started once the gay community sprung up I guess. I don't understand why being gay is a sin. Honestly some nights I cry knowing that all gay people are sinning just because they love someone else. I just don't understand. And then there's my doubt that God even exists. I mean how are we to know? All we have to take in account is a book that pretty much could've came from anywhere.
Anyways do any of you guys have any advice? I really want to believe, but it's really really hard right now. I'll even take some inspirational stories.

I went through this. I am also a part of the gay community. I grew up in a Christian family. I debated if I was Christian or if I wasn't and if I was if I was sinning. I decided being gay may or may not be a sin. But it says in the bible that we can wash our sins and still go to heaven. But just WHAT IF there is no afterlife or no heaven. And I lived my entire life being with a man who I couldn't actually fully love because id rather be with a woman. If there isn't a heaven.. Then it was all pointless.. So id rather. Take the risk and love who I love because at the end of the day life is too short to not live the way that makes you happy. And I still have at least a chance if there is a heaven. And if you want to believe. Believe. My only issue with this whole issue between gays and Christians is: I respect your religion. It doesn't effect me or my health. So why does my sexuality effect yours? I dont come up to you on the street and tell you being a Christian is wrong. So dont just randomly judge me by the fact that I'm gay. I'm still a loyal friend and I care for the people around me. I'm still as human as you or anyone else. So I just want to be treated like it.2
