1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or
drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people-none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (NLT)

1 Timothy 1:8-10
Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine ... (ESV)

Jude 7
And don't forget Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion. Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God's judgment. (NIV)
I am not against the people who are gay, rather the act of being gay. I know it is a sin, like lying or stealing, but it is stoppable and can be prevented. I am for all who want to know God but the first thing that needs to be done is to empty yourselves and crucify yourselves with Christ (Galatians 2:9). There is always a way out of sin (1 Corinthians 10:13). This is not a judgment but an encouragement. Please email me if you want help and prayer. Jonathancochran1775@gmail.com

Being gay is a sin but not one to me condemned over but rather helped with.

GCN has been a place of hope and community for me. One can post prayer requests and get support when in the lowest of times - often, for many of us, when we come out and our fellow Christians denigrate and hurt us. Finding support - even if it is from someone far away - is essential to our learning to accept ourselves. I have not personally experienced organized in-person community on a more local or regional basis in person through GCN; perhaps that is an area for improvement.

The work of The Gay Christian Network is not something you can quantify. You can't put it into words. You can't fit it into a box. The kind of work organizations like GCN do is life-giving. It, in a few inadequate words, allows the "gay" person or the person with "same-sex attractions" to experience that they are loved - whether they act out on those feelings or not. GCN loves and affirms one where they are. There is no pressure. There is a prayer board. There is discussion. There is community. I have experienced the power of the love and concern of people for me that I have never met before; a kind of love and support that literally keeps you going. Things can be dark in this world for someone with gay feelings - sometimes especially within religious settings. To hear that God loves you no matter what anyone has to say about it - no matter what your position is on whatever - is something I can't describe. Non-profits like GCN undoubtedly deserve our respect and appreciation.

This ministry saves lives. I am a gay, 20 year old male who was raised a very conservative, fundamentalist Christian household. I needed someone or something that would help me figure out that what had made me so depressed and overweight and unpopular for most of my life up to age 19 was because I was denying who I was. I was living in a world of black and whites, when the world is gray. It gave me the possibility of happiness found through accepting an essential, God-given part of me - my sexual orientation - instead of painfully denying and attempting to suppress it. It kept me from committing suicide over the despair of trying (and having failed) to change through ex-gay therapy for almost 4 years. If that doesn't far exceed the expectation of what a non-profit should do, I'm not quite sure what does.

figure out ways to increase the activities of the regional groups. Face-to-face contact from GLBT Christian to GLBT Christian would be even more effective, powerful tool at changing lives.

GCN is an organization that has been helping folks who are struggling with reconciling their sexual orientation with their faith. I have been heavily involved with them for three years, and have seen first hand the difference that this organization has made in the lives of those who are members and those who seek guidance and support. Often, this organization is among the first contacts a person makes on their journey of reconciliation. The staff, while modest in numbers, is augmented by over 100 volunteer leaders and many thousands of active members.

I personally have grown in my faith, my understanding and acceptance of my sexuality, and have gained hundreds of new friends who are supportive and contribute positively to my well-being and spiritual journey.

Try and raise additional funding to meet the needs of an ever-growing membership.

GCN whats can I say, one of the only public non-profits that support the belief system of Gay Christians. Im proud to be a member and would encourage anyone to log in and get connected.

GCN is a cornerstone they Ive had the pleasure to be apart of that hellps me connect with others who
believe in Christ and are gay.

Life is tough, God is good, GCN is there for you.


Be Well,
