I’m Gay – Will God Still Help Me?

January 30, 2012

“I am a gay male in my twenties. I was raised in a Christian home, but my parents kicked me out when they discovered my then-boyfriend and me in bed together when I was still in high school. Ever since then, I’ve kind of wandered away from the church – too many judgmental people – life is hard enough. But now I’m struggling with a pretty bad eating disorder (anorexia), and even though I feel totally alienated from the church, there is still a big part of me that believes that only God can rescue me from this disorder. So I guess I’m wondering… a) do you think that God would help me even though I’m gay, and b) what can I do to receive that help?”
