Gays who follow Christ

The gay rights movement is promoting the legalization of same sex marriage and the belief that homosexual activity is as normal as heterosexual activity.  Anyone who opposes these goals is accused of hating gays.

In some cases the accusation is true.  There are people who hate gays; the existence of the Westboro Baptist Church and organizations like it is evidence of this.  But there are others whose opposition is motivated by love.

God established marriage as a union between a man and a woman and has forbidden any sexual activity outside of this union.  Anyone who truly loves gay people will warn them of the dangers of violating God’s commands rather than encouraging disobedience.

There is a common misconception that all gays support the gay rights movement.  In fact there are many gay Christians who oppose it because they recognize the harm it does.  Here are three web sites where you can learn more about them.

  • Do you have a friend who is homosexual?
  • Do you have a family member who is gay or lesbian?
  • Do you find the whole subject confusing?
  • Do you know how to help and counsel a Christian brother or sister who lives with these realities?

Strength in Weakness Ministries is currently assisting Christians from over 150 Christian congregations in over 50 countries on every continent the world over. As well, we are teaching Evangelists, Church Leaders, Pastoral Care Workers and all Christians how to effectively counsel Christian men and women who are same gender attracted; parents, spouses and siblings how to deal with this challenge in their family relationships, and all Christ followers how to reach out to our gay neighbours for Christ through our workshops.

About us

True Freedom Trust (TfT) is a confidential Christian support and teaching ministry that holds to authentically biblical teaching on sexuality. We offer support to individuals who experience same-sex attraction, but who choose not to embrace a gay identity or to pursue a same-sex relationship because of convictions of faith. We also support families, friends and church leaders of those who experience same-sex attraction. Click on About us to find out more about TfT and click Contact TfT to get in touch.

If you’d like to get a taste of our teaching, you may like to listen to the talk below, given by our Director, Jonathan Berry. Another good place to start is to have a look at our Frequently Asked Questions.

TfT was founded in 1977 by Martin Hallett and the late Canon L Roy Barker. The ministry is now led by our Director Jonathan Berry, who was appointed in October 2009.

Our office is in the North West of England where a number of our staff workers are based. We have support groups and Voluntary Workers (men & women) across the UK. We also provide online help and encouragement to people through e-mail and our  Members Area. We have an active support group specifically for parents.

We also have overseas members in Europe, the United States and beyond who support our ministry and benefit from online resources and forum.

If you would like any further information about our work, how we might be able to help you, or joining the TfT membership please let us know. We are very happy to discuss issues with you and confidentiality is assured. If you don’t wish to join the membership and would prefer simply to make an anonymous enquiry, this is perfectly OK.

spiritualfriendship.org

Spiritual Friendship was created by Ron Belgau and Wesley Hill out of frustration with the prevailing narratives about homosexuality in orthodox Christian circles. We believe that both the focus on political activism against same-sex marriage and the Freudian psychology behind reparative therapy distracted from providing an adequate, Christ-centered pastoral response to LGBT Christians.

We believe in a traditionally Christian sexual ethic: that God created human beings male and female, and that any sexual intimacy outside of a faithful, lifelong marital union of a man and woman is contrary to His plan. But we also believe that marriage is not the only way of life God calls us to, and so we seek to explore different ways of serving God in celibacy. And Christ-centered friendship is, we believe, essential to that task.

In trying to create a new approach to homosexuality, we have drawn on the wisdom found in the broader Christian tradition. We explore God’s calling, the nature of the Church, celibacy, our nature as embodied souls, and related topics. Thus, what began as questions addressed to our situation as celibate gay Christians has led to answers which may be of interest to a much larger Christian audience.
