Boy Scouts Deal with "Gay" question...

 I read an article about the boyscouts dealing with the "Gay" question. Here is my problem with an article like the one posted below at the bottom of this post. Havings struggled with this myself when I was younger, there are two statements that operate under false assumptions in this article.
  1. LDS says that you "can be gay but can't act on those feeling"
  2. "And I want every boy, regardless of sexual orientation, to be able to participate in the scouting program."
These statements operate under the premise that you can be "Gay" just like you can be black or white, male or female, etc. Gay, contrary to popular cultural belief is NOT a state that one is, but a mindset one operates under.

Now, Christian's have been quick to call it a choice, which in essence it is, but it's a choice in the same way that alcoholism or addiction is a choice. It's a result of mindsets and decisions, but not a direct choice. Nobody says: "I think I'll choose to be an alcoholic" Likewise nobody(not most of them anyway) says: "I think I'll choose to be gay."

However, this is not to say that being alcoholic or gay is choiceless and automatic. Both are the result of conditioning and beliefs. Anyone who wants to be free of alcoholism can be, anyone who wants to be free of homosexuality can be. Not through pop culture programs either. AA isn't any more effective for Alcoholics than other so-called "Gay recovery programs" have been for Gays. Those fail because they attempt to use psychology and therapy to do something only Faith in the Word of God can do.

All mindsets are the result of the overflow of the heart. What have been put in the ears, in the eyes and spoken by the mouth becomes belief. We see this with anorexia all the time. You can tell the girl she is TOO skinny, and it's unhealthy, and she needs to eat, but in her mind she is fat and nothing YOU say can change that. To her, she is fat and she must stop eating. It's not truth, but to her it feels true. This is the case with "gay". You may feel gay, you may believe you are gay. There actually is no such thing. Gay is a state of mind. All twisted or incorrect states of mind can be changed by the renewing of your mind through the Word of God. You need to saturate yourself with who you are according to the One who created you, and not who the broken world says you are.

This is a VERY unpopular teaching and I don't expect it to become any more popular, but it's the truth. If you don't want to be "free" of being gay, don't be, that is your decision. If you want to be you can be. Here are three great resources for help:

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36).

Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…
