I kissed a girl. And I liked it. The song played way before I thought it possible. This girl though wanted me to. I am a Christian. This feels too right for Leviticus 18. And worse for Romans 1. I mean we can negate the Old Testament for being too old. We are the assembly … Continue reading I KISSED A GIRL
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!
A few weeks ago, my friend and founder of this blog, Steve, approached me and asked if I could pen a series of articles on the theme Seen, Known and Loved. It had been upon his heart to do it, and at the same time, I was looking for something to contribute here. He handed … Continue reading Seen, Known , Loved [Prelude]
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
I am in a WhatsApp group chat for the men music ministers in the church community I serve and fellowship in. Aside from the football memes and dad jokes that are shared alongside verses of inspiration, links to Twitter threads on subjects of various interest are also posted. One that was shared recently was a … Continue reading Abomination?
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
And Yes, almost of them are men!
When all is said and done, I want to HAVE JESUS MORE. More of JESUS and Jesus MORE
For to be known, and loved is the sweetest gift that anyone can be offered.
The year 2020 began with much anticipation. I was both excited and scared to be...
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
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.
They won't like you no moreWhen they realizeWhat makes you beautifulIs your very brokenness. And just like that,What beheld beautyWill behold scorn. They will look at you like a curse,Only acknowledge your beautifulBut never call you one.Because when they do,They'd be saying you're normal.But you are not! And that conflicts them badly. They'd rather you're … Continue reading Beauty from Broken
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?
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,
But at the core of it, I believe every human is seeking intimacy, before sex, and that's all I’ve also wanted.

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?
Have you ever had a secret so devastating that the very thought of it being let out,rips through the fabric of your existence, your life and tear it into shreds?
Generally speaking, why would one choose to be gay? Especially in our extreme homophobic society? Who loves himself/herself that little?
I had a crush on him, am I gay? But I still love girls, what's wrong with Me?
What if he told you he was gay, what hope would you give him or her?
