The Experiences of Homosexual Trads
#84
Quote:But I would have you to be without solicitude. He that is without a wife, is solicitous for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please God. But he that is with a wife, is solicitous for the things of the world, how he may please his wife: and he is divided. And the unmarried woman and the virgin thinketh on the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she that is married thinketh on the things of the world, how she may please her husband. (1 Corinthians 7:32-34 DRA)

Those with SSA have an opportunity to be servants of the Body, being not solicitous for the cares of the world. While they generally are not priests or religious, this allows them the chance to have greater freedom in Christ. A heterosexual priest does not automatically lose his sexual desires. A single man who is not with SSA doesn't lose his either.

The die is cast, the lot is know, the choice is easy to see: Christ, or the Devil.

Keep up the fight. Not all in the view of heterosexual couples is accurate. There's much consternation. A man with wife and children can't just randomly do things. Neither can a priest. You all with SSA have a greater freedom in Christ than many; do not look on what you can't have, but what you can. Do not look on the taunting images of abusive relationships cast as "love", within the unchaste milieu of the homosexuals. They are slaves to slavery. In Christ, you are slaves to freedom in Christ. You can choose to live simply and serve all. Or, God forbid, you can choose to serve self.

Either way, no matter one's proclivity, the choice remains: serve Christ or serve the Devil.

It ain't easy on the "straight" side. The grass is green with toddler puke. It's affection with mood swings. It's keep my mouth shut in front of a shithead boss so wife and children don't go without.

You don't have those problems. Praise God and keep running the race.

Life is short on earth. Don't forsake eternity for now. Such is the goal of all, gay or straight.

Keep fighting. Stick with Mary. Be Christ in the world.
