Confusaed

I have been a Christian all my life I grew up going to church and became rooted in faith when I was a freshmen in high school. I am 20 now and have had HSV2 for about eight months. Due to other events I stopped going to church almost a year ago, but I never fell away, I still pray and ask God to guide me, but I've just been thinking. This seems a little extreme but now I feel like...well I'm unclean and wont be able to get to Heaven. :/ I know God loves us all but I guess I fell away hard for a little bit and now all these thoughts are circling through me head :(

I one hundred percent believe God would never ever seclude you from Heaven because of a virus. His eyes see the beauty and purity in us no matter what kind of mistakes we've made or what kind of viruses we acquire...He loves us! He loves YOU! :)

I agree with keepswimming, God ponders the heart, not the body. The Bible is very clear that there is forgiveness for ALL sins through Jesus Christ. However I do personally believe that to earn that forgiveness we should always be doing our best to better live up to Jesus' teaching and not continue to carelessly repeat the same sins as in our past. We've all made mistakes, some costlier than others, but it's never too late to gain God's forgiveness and love!

HI punkrockkid...If you are a Christian, you know the path to Heaven is through Jesus Christ...and you know that you when excetped him as your Savior when you confess your sins they are forgiven, and FORGOTTEN! :)

It is normal to feel "un-clean" when you contract this virus..but with time that will get better! This silly little virus is not going to keep you out of Heaven!!

I believe I got herpes because my lifestyle was not the best. There are consequences to sin. I went along with the lie it was okay to sleep with men if they were your boyfriend even though not married. I an a Catholic Christian and know better. Now after herpes, dating and sex are low my list and serving God is #1. God ABSOLUTELY forgives and forgets and He does help u love w the consequences.

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
