Gay Christian 101
Gay Christian 101 provides truthful information
for GLBTs and their friends worldwide.
From October 9, 2013 to February 2014 - I'm in Long Beach, California, working with Pastor Paul and his G3Y ministry to gays and lesbians. I could really use a donated camper van or motorhome, to stay in on this trip. If anyone has a camper van or a decent used motorhome you can donate or loan, it will be much appreciated.
A friend will allow me to park in the driveway behind his house while I'm in SoCal, giving me a low cost place to stay. If you can help, please Contact Me. Many thanks for praying and supporting this ministry to the LGBT community.

You are intelligent. You think about your beliefs because you want to live an authentic life.
Gay Christian 101 provides insight to help you grapple with tough questions, especially questions about reconciling the fact that you are authentically gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered and authentically Christian.
Finding answers to difficult questions requires Bible study, prayer, a believing approach to scripture and practical application of life experience.
Our Bible-believing, Jesus-following, gay-affirming free resources help you wrestle with the questions as you grow in grace and knowledge of God. We encourage you to read your Bible. Be like the Berean Christians who,
“searched the scriptures daily whether
those things were so.” Acts 17:11.
Yes, peace and joy are available when you believe God's truth instead of man's lies. Gay Christian 101 tells you the truth. God never said the unkind things about gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders that some Christians say about us.
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. You get to decide which one you want.
God loves you with an everlasting love!
GLBT Christian - you are a wonderful part of God's Creative Plan. You are NOT a freak of nature. You are not an accident. God loves you, John 3:16, and according to Jesus, God intends some of His children to be born gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered, Matthew 19:12.
GLBT people are not the result of a sinful personal choice nor are we the result of the fall of Adam. As the story of the Ethiopian Eunuch demonstrates, GLBT people are as much a part of God’s Redemptive plan as everyone else.
"Taste and see Psalm 34:8
Life is an adventure and God wants to share the adventure with you. Will you make the Lord Jesus welcome in your life today?
that the Lord is good."
"May God bless you
