Christian BoyLove Forum #64386
Granted, my beliefs are different than many here, but I can only offer words from my own experiences.
I see 3 basic statements in the above mission:
1) Live life with integrity,
2) Express faith in a way that honors God
3) Demonstrates the love of Jesus to all
Integrity is defined differently depending on whom you ask, but the general idea is there, and not really related to your sexual orientations. As a Christian, one is expected (IMO) to live their life out as best they can, as morally sound as possible. The fact that we are BL's instead of regular males does not contradict this. Males in general suffer from lust/wanton thoughts, with regard to the female body (and oft-times much worse than our own). Does that make them any better or worse off than us? Not really. The fact that society would condemn our orientation doesn't really chance its status.
I think 2 and 3 are connected, and basically can be summed up to maintaining positive relations with people, having a servant heart, and spreading the "good news" with others.
I try to volunteer my time whenever I can, and usually it involves boys, since that makes it actually fun for me. But I'd find it hard to believe that simply because I would feel attracted to the boys I'm around, that negates the fact that I'm trying to better the world, and volunteering my time/money. Seems unreasonable to me, to say the least.
The way I see it, having the desires and attractions, that's normal, and you can't be faulted for it. The minute you take it beyond just having the attractions, it becomes sinful. That's how I deal with that in my own life, and I deal accordingly, with God, to account for all my sins.
Sorry for the lengthy reply, I hope it helped somewhat.
