My Walk of Faith with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

Lately, I have been having a hard time with the LDS church, obliviouhsly, because I am gay. Don’t get me wrong, the people are friendly, yet, some of the policies are getting to me. Like, I can’t be gay, and hold a calling. Which I don’t get. I also of course, can’t drink coffee, or black or green tea in the LDS faith. Now if you know me, I am now drinking coffee and tea, and I feel great. I am also not worthy enough to enter The House of the Lord aka The Temple. It was good while it lasted, and now I just need  to move on with my life.

Lately, I have been getting promptings from God, trust me I know he’s there, that I need to attend another church, and rid myself of the garment. I am indeed following the promptings. So, I have ordered regular underwear, and I am ready to move on. I am also in the process of checking out several different churches. I plan to check out a non-denominational right near my house, and possibly even return to my former church which of course is Methodist. I am in the process of researching how the Methodists deal with LGBT members.

Will I get rid of any of my church materials? Most likely not. It’s great literature. And I love the KJV. But I can get used to other versions of the Bible.

I feel so happy with the way, life is going. It is true that if you follow a prompting good things will come of it.

    How wonderful! I’m LDS and straight, but I have some of the same issues with church policy and was told by the spirit to step away last summer. It was so hard, but it has been amazing! I feel like I have a whole new life–or I’m starting one–that is more fitting for me. I wish you luck on your journey. I know you will find a wonderful place for you where you can be yourself and live your life honestly and fully as God intended. Hugs and love!
