Understanding Homosexuality: An Orthodox Christian Perspective
Lord and Master of my life, cast away from me the spirit of laziness, idle curiosity, love of power and vain talk. Prostration But grant me, Your servant, the spirit of moderation, humility, patience and love. Prostration Yes, Lord and King, grant me to see my own faults and not to judge my brothers and sisters. Prostration For You are Blessed forever. Sometimes I see in my heart that evil thoughts surround my mind like wild beasts, but cannot at all harm me.
Saint George Greek Orthodox Church
For Orthodox Christians, no discussion of sex whether it is autoerotic, heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, or the current polyamorous sex, can be divorced from an Orthodox theology of sexuality. All sexuality and sexual behavior is based on divine love; a love that is beyond any human feeling, empathy, or ethical standard, and even approaches the essence of God Himself. St John tells us "… for love is of God … God is love" 1 John This love is also given to man to experience and apply in relationships with his fellow man.
