HOW TO GET ONE OF THESE ARTICLES
Website Background and Overview...
ay Christian Online was one of the first, is one of the oldest (over twenty-five years), and is still one of the largest wesbites on the Internet providing information, articles, referrals, and personal assistance and support for gay and lesbian Christians, and for gays and lesbians in general.
For a description of what this website is and is not, its purpose and scope, you can read about it here, Gay Christian Online Welcome.
If you are interested in reading about me... my personal life, background, growing up, professional careers (ministry, counseling, education, etc.), family life (marriage, partnership, parenthood), and current events (yawn, HaHa), you can read about me here, Ben's Autobiography.
If you are interested in learning about the background of the creation of this website, you can read about it here, Gay Christian Online Introduction.
Those pages should give you a basic outline of the website. Now, for some details about what this website is, and what it can do for you...
| Website Purpose...
ay Christian Online is NOT a forum or place to discuss or debate the issue of Homosexuality, nor Christianity and Homosexuality. If you are looking for this, you will not find it here. There are people, books, and websites available to assist you in that regard... just not here, and just not me.
Gay Christian Online is designed to provide for gay and lesbian Christians, and gays and lesbians in general... Love, acceptance, support; uplifting positive information, encouragement and affirmation; guidance, growth, and maturity; and, the skills and tools necessary to live a healthy, responsible, and positive life.
| For Those Who Think Being Gay or Lesbian Is Wrong...
ou may e-mail me, if you wish. I will give you the courtesy of a reply. But, please understand I will not debate, nor discuss the validity of being gay and lesbian. It is a waste of time to tell me you think being gay is wrong, I am going to Hell, nor do you need to cut and paste dozens of Scripture verses in your e-mail. Be courteous and give your name, background, and location, so I may know with whom I am conversing.
Most of the "being gay is wrong" e-mails I receive are sent anonymously. Often these e-mails seem more venting than honest dialogue, their purpose more about making the writer feel good about themselves and secure in their own righteousness, than a real desire to witness Christ and show interest in my personal welfare.
No, I am not avoiding anything. I just honestly do not have the time, nor the calling (again, there are other websites and people who are called to discuss and debate about Homosexuality).
Unless you are personally struggling with your sexuality and/or spirituality, you are honestly trying to understand what it means to be gay or lesbian, or you are trying to support and help someone who is, then thanks for visiting... but... I really need to devote my time and attention to people who really need my assistance.
If this is not you, then as you move on elsewhere on the Internet, may Jesus touch you with God's Love.
|For Those Who Need Information, Help And Assistance...
f you are struggling with your spirituality, sexuality, or life in general, or you sincerely desire to understand, or assist some who is, then... "Welcome Home." It is my sincere prayer you find Love, Hope, Information, Assistance, Support, Wisdom, and Peace through this website.
|Wow, This Website Is Big!
es, it has numerous articles on a wide range of topics, with over four hundred pages full of information, insight, and assistance. It is worth the time and effort to read an article completely to fully understand, and apply the positive principals and knowledge to your life. You can even acquire and receive these articles by e-mail or regular land mail, and then read them offline. Contact me for assistance in getting an article. Additionally, I provide recommended and referenced books and other Internet links on a wide rang of topics, too. There are even some fun pages, poetry, music, and games (designed to inform, and teach about what it really means to be gay or lesbian).
Also, here is a search feature, where you can find a word, phrase, subject or topic within the entire website.
And remember... you always have what makes this website so unique and special... a personal touch... contact with me. Feel free to e-mail me, write to me anytime, and about anything, too. That is what I am here for, and why I am here for you. When you write, please include your name, and give as much information and background as you can; the more information you give me, the better I can assist you.
|The Personal Look And Sound Of This Website...
he pictures, artwork, and background music reflect my personal hobbies and interests, my love of antiques, Classical art and music, all things Walt Disney, especially the movie Pinocchio (memorabilia which I collect), support or bring emphasis to the topic of the article or page, and give the reader visual and listening interest while reading.
I include changing artwork and background music to reflect various holidays and seasons. Photographs of myself and family are included to give you a face behind these words, and a personal touch.
Peace and Hugs,
