Christian BoyLove Forum #66338
I have been living in a small town now for several years. I used to live in a major city where people were pretty anonymous, but in a small town it doesn't take long before everyone knows your name. I go to a church that is very accepting of all races, sexual orientations, sexual identities, etc., but I don't think they would be quite so understanding about pedophilia.
Well, now that I've been here for a while and often volunteered in the community, people tend to see me as trustworthy, so I often get placed in a role of youth leadership. I feel blessed with the chance to work with wonderful children and youth, but also there is a certain temptation that comes along with such a position of trust and authority. I will not succumb to the temptation, but I feel like everything in my life has led up to me being in this place, and now God is putting my willpower to the test by placing me in a situation that could so easily be taken advantage of. I fully intend on meeting this challenge by creating meaningful and beneficial relationships with the youth, while not making any kind of sexual advances.
Well, I just wanted to get that off my chest, since I don't know anyone in real life with whom I could talk about it.
