Hi, I’m Matthias!
I know what it is like to want to hold onto my faith and feel like I can’t because of my sexuality.
I used to believe that the two couldn’t co-exist. Like many people, I was taught the lie that gender and sexual minorities can’t be Christians. Or that sex before marriage is a sin. Yet, when I realized that I was gay, I started digging deeper into this theology. What I found was people in the church have been gravely wrong. Now, I create resources to help people fight bad theology so that we might live confident and fulfilling lives.
Want to join me?
