Christian BoyLove Forum #66882
I'm sorry about what happened to you. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain you endured, and probably are still enduring.
It's so nice to hear you are feeling at home in our humble meeting spot.
I remember the time I first discovered myself being attracted to boys, I started googling the topic and was startled by the presumption, that I was bound to offend. It was repeated in so many places that, eventually, I found myself believing that.
Then, upon finally finding the first site describing how an individual like us can lead a good, chaste, orderly life (which was VIRPED) and reading testimonies of people living that way for years, I was INCREDIBLY relieved.
That feeling was so strong it was almost physical. I realized what pain and sadness I had to endure as long as I thought that (in some scenarios) man-boy sex is ok. Getting rid of those opinions and feelings of loneliness in the struggle made me feel like a human being again.
I hope you have experienced or will experience something similar, because having such a burden lifted from your shoulders feels like being cured from some kind of disability.
My best advice to you, and everyone in here, is to first of all to read and turn to life the words of the Gospel (especially John and Lucas) as often as you can. It just never fails to amaze Godly people with how much He loves us.
Also be aware that some, including me, believe God can cure such attractions (you might want to check out David Kyle Foster's YouTube account. I will write a little bit more about it on this forum soon).
Stay strong and praise the Lord for what He's done for you.
Feel free to contact me at the email address provided above.
You are in my prayers,
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
(Psalms 27, 4)
PS. What virped gave to me, I believe, is given to many BLers by this forum. That's why (kinda answering Mordecai's question) I believe this forum should be held online. For people in pain to find relief in seeing others who struggle, to see how to solve the common problems of ours, and to be able to say something about themselves and receive constructive input and prayer from others. And because I don't know any other place that could replace this lovely work of God and human hands.
PS2. What other BL forums are there (apart from boychat)? Any Christian ones?
