Many gay men and lesbians claim that the Christian faith is the guiding rule of their lives. Some of them hold that their sexual orientation is given by God, that it is good, and that there is nothing wrong or sinful with their homosexual activities. These persons say that the Bible and Church Tradition do not condemn homosexual behaviour, but have been misinterpreted and misused, sometimes unknowingly and other times quite willfully, by prejudiced and hostile people who hate homosexuals. Those who believe in this way obviously want others to agree with them, and many are now working hard to have their views accepted, particularly by fellow Christians and Church leaders. While some of these people are not willing or able to identify the specific reasons for their sexual feelings, though still affirming that they are not good and are not to be indulged; others with the help of what they believe to be sound biblical interpretation and accurate psychological analysis, identify the source of their sexual orientation in faults and failures in their family experiences, particularly in early childhood, and perhaps even before that, which contribute to their sexual makeup. These people hold that they are called by God to struggle against their homosexual tendencies as all people are called to struggle against the sinful passions which they find within themselves, while they work to heal the causes of their disorientation and disease.

List of Christian denominations affirming LGBT
Please contact Susan if you have any corrections or additions, or visit our congregational update page or campus group update page! Being a More Light campus group is important to us because we are the only publicly affirming Christian campus ministry group at George Mason University. Our students have long advocated for and been a safe place at GMU, and we want to publicly declare our welcoming statement to all six of the denominations that support Arise. Our church began the journey to affirming More Light by creating a new ministry under our mission team.
Christian leaders have written about homosexual male—male sexual activities since the first decades of Christianity ; female—female sexual behaviour was almost entirely ignored. However, in the 20th century some prominent theologians and Christian religious groups have espoused a wide variety of beliefs and practices towards homosexuals, including the establishment of some "open and accepting" congregations that actively support LGBT members, which they consider biblical in light of other rebukes in the New Testament that Christians might gloss over, such as wealth,  women refraining from speaking in church  or covering their heads while praying,  and Protestant churches' lack of support for adults who do not want to marry, such as building monasteries,  even though New Testament verses speak of the virtues of remaining single,  such as the example of , males who are not to be "defiled"  with females before being redeemed in the Apocalypse. The first instance of the English word "homosexuals" used in a Biblical translation was in the RSV New Testament published from until ,  which simultaneously removed most "fornication" admonitions found in the prior ASV and KJV Bibles. Several post-World War II translations now have one to four verses literally rebuking homosexuals while replacing all mention of fornicators with "the immoral" or "sexual immoral" and leaving ambiguous homosexual or heterosexual immorality.
