This Path – Spoken

Father God, help me, guide me
As I swim through this sea of failure
You know me, You made me
Its my choice to follow You

Wherever you go, I will follow
T
hough the road may be so hard that I lose my way
I still will follow You

You comfort me, You carry me
You’re the only one to get me through
You know me, You made me it’s my choice to follow You
(Don’t be afraid to carry on)

Chosen by God to keep our head up high
As we move along this hard, hard life
With trials, temptations, with trials, temptations

They crush me with the things they do to me
Disgust me with the lies they tell me

Father God, help me, guide me
As I swim through this sea of failure
You know me, You made me
Its my choice to follow You

Christians and Gays – John Boruff

Scripture clearly teaches that the gay lifestyle is sinful, but change is possible through repentance and faith in Christ. The church should be friendly and helpful to those trying to forsake this sin, but those who refuse to turn from this sin will not inherit the kingdom of God (Romans 1:24-27; 1 Timothy 1:8-10; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Jude 1:7; Galatians 6:1; 1 John 1:9).

I agree with the Southern Baptist Convention’s statement “On ‘Same-Sex Marriage’ And Civil Rights Rhetoric
