biblical resources for LGBTs
A message from Rick Brentlinger
I need your help! Since October 2006 when this website first appeared online, donations from loving people have averaged $35 a month. I thank God for those donations but $35 a month doesn't go very far. I no longer have enough income to keep paying all of the expenses myself.
If the excellent biblical information on this website has helped you find peace about being gay and Christian or has helped you find the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, will you help us with a financial donation so we can keep helping others?
Expensive and time consuming costs of answering thousands of email questions, phone counseling those who are hurting, researching, writing, hand-coding html, designing and publishing, updating and keeping this website online are paid for and performed by Rick Brentlinger, founder and webmaster.
We love and appreciate our readers! I've answered thousands of your questions and counseled you and prayed with you by phone and email. God has also blessed me to minister in person to many of you. I've also sent thousands of dollars worth of free books to people who couldn't afford to buy a copy because I love you and want to be a blessing to you. I have no more printed books to sell or send.
I need your regular financial support so I can keep reaching the gay and lesbian community around the world with the glorious gospel of Christ. We currently reach 50,000+ people each month in 190 countries. If God has used Gay Christian 101 to bless you, will you bless us back with a one time or a monthly financial donation? Everyone who donates and provides an email address will receive my eBook, Gay Christian 101, as a FREE Thank You gift. Thank you for your support!

and peace of mind for us when we believe what He says in the Bible. The most important question to answer right now is: Am I sure I am saved? Many gays are cultural Christians instead of born again Christians. They grew up in church or they are religious or they are spiritual. They try to do the right thing but they've never personally received Jesus Christ as their Savior from sin.
Why do so many young people quit church?
The best preparation for being a disciple of Jesus is to know for sure you are saved. Everyone needs to be saved from sin and hell and the wrath of God. Here is what Jesus taught about hell and God's wrath.
Jesus teaches Hell 101
What is the wrath of God?
Getting saved and becoming a disciple of Jesus means not trusting your good works, confirmation, baptism, sacraments, being a cultural Christian or grace allegedly infused through a church, instead, trusting by grace alone through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ alone to save you.
What must I do to be saved?
Once you know for sure you are saved, it helps to understand what happened when you got saved.
What happens when you get saved?
Once you understand what happened when you got saved, it helps to understand how long you are saved for. Is your salvation temporary or eternal?
Am I saved for all eternity?
Yes, joy and peace are available when you believe God's truth instead of man's lies. Who you choose to believe determines your peace and happiness. If you believe the haters, you'll never have peace. If you believe God and the Bible, your life can be a peaceful oasis in a sometimes crazy world. God loves you with an everlasting love!
"May God bless you
