I wasn’t quitting on my faith, NO, how could I, Jesus seemed the realest! I was basically saying, “I cannot ignore my feelings of same sex attractions, and I didn’t know how to remain Christian amidst them.” Being home with Christ felt like the only comfort; I became suicidal!
Few months to Jan 2018 I had heeded to God’s leading in serving full-time in a Church; a one year internship contract. Having been greatly inspired by reading the story of Charles Spurgeon, I looked forward to a momentous season of ministry. Little did I know what lay ahead. I will not talk about the … Continue reading 2018; the year that I almost lost it all #Throwback
Do you feel my heart-beat, any time we meet?
I write today, not to give my story but to actually give you a glimpse of what's it's like for me.
What word does the Christian have for them apart from, ‘don’t
engage in gay sex’?
Once again we feature another story, we will call the owner of this story as Mr Z. Blessings as you read. ................................................................... This is the second time am penning this down. The last time I did so, I gave up writing when I was in the middle of it. I have been adamant on sharing … Continue reading ONE DAY AT A TIME: MY STORY
Internet told me that I was gay! I hated gay! Everyone hates gays, even God hated them so much that he burnt a whole city because of them.
I am not gay!
That was my now biggest prayer. God I don’t wanna be gay. I was hopeful. I fasted. Read the word and all my tender mind could think.
So, take courage today! Pray that God would grant you strength even as you seek to battle with these desires. Ask that He in His mercy would allow you to see His work in your life.
Yes. Some Christians experience same sex attractions. Many Christians in fact. Hehe
#I_Press_On Phil 3: 12- 16 God has made us his own. God has obtained a salvation and inheritance for us. God has called us to live as his own and to receive the reward of being his. >> However, much of that in some way remains yet to be realized and at times does not … Continue reading PRESS ON
And Yes, almost of them are men!
2 Kings 5:1-14 STORY TIME -Naaman- an Assyrian a mighty man of valour, but a leper. -A little girl, an Israelite servant working for Mrs Naaman tells him about God's healing in Samaria. - The King who held Naaman so highly quickly sends him to Israel for healing. - Israel's king is shocked by this … Continue reading WASH and be CLEAN! ???
My obvious response to all the loneliness and pressure will be to desire him, the one whose looks I will be awed at. The one whose intimacy will flush away all my loneliness. Someone whom...
It was the year 2014 and I was attending this mission experience. I had already confessed to one of our facilitator that I struggled with homosexual feelings (the very first time when I gathered courage to call what I was feeling that). So time came for us to go to the mission field. Well, another … Continue reading Telling it raw: In the mission field

"It's she, the white witch, that makes it always winter. Always winter and never Christmas; think of that!"
This is an article I wish I never sat down to draft, not due to its content but more so due to my context. Though I seek to be understood many will end up doing otherwise. In hope, though I will pen my words down, someday maybe, someone will get it. This has come about due to my own personal experience and the many stories I have heard from people who experience an enduring pattern of physical, emotional and sexual attractions towards the same gender. I label that experience Gay
I need a language to describe my enduring pattern of physical emotional and sexual attractions towards my same sex
Thus when Jesus comes, he moves ahead to declare that Shalom/Eirene. Peace to the woman who had struggled for 12 years with bleeding- Mark 5:25-34, peace to the disciples who most likely would be frightened by his departure-John 14:27 and much more peace to those who would be justified by Faith to God through him
Yes, the 99 were safe in the fold, but the 1 mattered, and he was willing to go seeking for it in the open field.
To all who consider yourself FALLEN this is for you, Jesus table is yours, DINE with him.
For that is his DELIGHT!
Hi Steve, it's always fascinating to see your articles on sexuality issues. I find it relevant to my ministry as a youth pastor. Maybe we can have some discussion on the same.
In a documentary that was premiered on the 21st of October in Rome, Pope Francis is quoted to have said, “Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or made miserable over it. What is needed … Continue reading What did the Pope really say and why did we react the way we did?
The million dollar remains, is there a form of cuddling that is safe for the same sex oriented man/woman
It is thus okay to conclude that the terms malakoi and arsenokoitai point to the men who have sex with other men.
Sexuality-wise, I am almost exclusively oriented towards my gender
I however wish we all knew how much complex the issue of sexuality is. Probably more complex than we think.
Just because it’s persistent, it doesn't mean that it's the most important and authentic fact about you,
No failure is ever a success story. But it can be a redemption story

Next came the part I dreaded most; having to tell someone I could trust what I had been going through. Who could I trust with such a burden?
