As a Gay man growing up in the Southern Baptist Church I struggled continually with my faith. I was constantly told that the loving God in their Bible was going to send me to an eternal lake of fire and brimstone. At one point I even attempted suicide. My attempts to pray-away-the-gay never worked. I questioned God. I got mad at God. I turned away from God. Yet in the back of my mind, God was always there. Perhaps just a whisper but still calling out to me.

I am on my journey back to God. But it is not the God that is preached to me via a literal translation of the Bible. I am searching for a loving and compassionate God. 

Where are you at in your spiritual journey? Let talk. Maybe we can learn from one another.
