The homosexual pastor on his Facebook page revealed how he had on diverse instances thought of committing suicide.
He noted: Iâ€™m not ashamed of being who I am. In spite of the fact that I am happy to have divorced my ex-wife in 1994, I feel repentant not knowing my sexual taste before I got married.
â€œI am truly not bothered, as the inclusive Christian ministry with the House of Rainbow, brings me in contact with many people who are similar gender loving, thousands of people around the world absolutely like me.
â€œPredominantly, I have encountered God with anÂ inconceivable love.
â€œTo be rejected by family hurts, substantially parents and children.
â€œI had to block another family member and unapologetically share with another, who is willing to listen.
â€œSince I came out as gay, I have several times thought of taking my life. The rejection cuts deeply into my heart and my soul, but knowing Christ and believing in an awesome God has been great.
â€œAnd To be able to tell gay people on a daily basis that God love us just the way we are is a humbling experience. And I thank God for calling me.
â€œGAY signifies, GodÂ cherishes You, God Accepts You and God Affirms You.
â€œJeremiah 1:5 â€“ Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. And before you were born I consecrated you, I appointed you a prophet to the nations.
â€œPsalm 139:14 â€“ I praise you because, I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful and I know it with my heart.
â€œI am not ashamed to be gay, even though I regret not knowing before I got married to a woman in 1991. But Thank God I was divorced by 1994. There are millions of stories only if we pay attention.
â€œI thought I will share this, I apologize if this is unbearable, and I needed to share. God bless you. Jide Macaulay.â€
