This article was published in collaboration with Vice. He looked like he could barely hold it together. His dark complexion was ashen, and there was dried toothpaste around his mouth. When I asked him how he was doing, it took a full four seconds before he answered. He said it matter-of-factly, but when I looked at him to see if he was joking, his shoulders were slumped, his head down, his eyes focused on the track immediately in front of him.

How to Tell a Friend You're Gay and You Love Them (with Pictures)
Within Christianity , there are a variety of views on sexual orientation and homosexuality. Even within a denomination, individuals and groups may hold different views and not all members of a denomination necessarily support their church's views on homosexuality. This article focuses on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, covering how the extent to which the Bible mentions the subject, whether or not it is condemned, and whether the various passages apply today, have become contentious topics. Significant debate has arisen over the proper interpretation of the Levitical code; the story of Sodom and Gomorrah ; and various Pauline passages, and whether these verses condemn same-sex sexual activities. The Catholic Church views as sinful any sexual act not related to procreation by a couple joined under the Sacrament of Matrimony.
My friend is gay, what do I do? I'm a Christian.?

This poem conveys the idea of enduring friendship with perfect simplicity, which is the foundation of the three types of Christian friends. In a mentoring relationship we teach, counsel or disciple other Christian friends. This is a relationship based on ministry, similar to the kind Jesus had with his disciples. Mentee Friendship: In a mentee friendship, we are the one being taught, counseled, or discipled. We are on the receiving end of ministry, being served by a mentor.
