I have been a Christian for a long time but for the past year, I have been questioning my sexuality. This has in turn brought questions about my faith as from first glance it is very precise in what it says. Man shall not sleep with Man. This is a difficult thing to get your head around when you think you are pansexual because what if I end up sleeping with the same gender. I get to the point where I am ok with it, I have got both my faith and my sexuality in line together and things are good and then someone says something and I question everything all over again. Over the last few days, I was away with some Christians and decided to come out to them and one of them, in particular, has really made me question everything with is not helping my mental health. Suddenly every conclusion I had come to does not matter and it is like my brain is stuck on repeat. With this, I have hurt other people because I get stuck on a topic and I just don't know how to get out of this loop. I just hate it so much. Yes there was confusion but I wish I could just go back to being 'straight'.

    Faith and sexuality are a tough one. There's a lot of self hatred that comes along with it. I'm glad you came out but I'm sorry it didn't go that well.

    There's a lot of different ways to look at faith and sexuality. The Bible has been tramslated many different times and with each translation things got lost. You could also consider the time the Bible was written and that it was written and translated by man.

    I can say that I have walked away from religion so my mindset is skewed more towards that. My dad came out as gay in 2009 and still has faith in God. He doesn't go to church because of negative experiences but he has a solid relationship with god and says he knows God doesn't hate him. It's possible to have faith and be who you are. It might take time to get there but it can happen. Plenty of my LGBTQIA+ friends have gotten there and some still attend church.

    I'm here if you want to talk. Just know you can be you and find peace about your faith. I know this is tough place to be. I was there once
