About TAD




Below is my "OUT" declaration from February 17, 2009. I won't take it back, because every word I said was true, and it was a case of wanting to be truthful, as a follower of Christ. HOWEVER, let me clarify. It is more accurate to say I struggle with my sexuality and what it means to be a faithful follower of Jesus. Pornography and bi-sexuality are both areas with which I struggle. At the point I wrote my "OUT" declaration, I was at a particular up and down phase of that bipolar struggle, in which I was tempted to give up and give in. YET even though I was at that stage, my intent was not to condone (or condemn) bi-sexuality. It was simply an effort to be truthful about where I was in my spiritual journey. Christians are no better than non-Christians. We all struggle with the same things. The only difference is whether or not we ask Jesus to aid us in being victorious over our temptations, or just decide to give in. But it's always a struggle, even for those who have chosen to follow Christ. The closer one gets to God, the more one sees his or her own shortcomings. I believe in eternity, because I could blather on forever. Basically, I'm saying that, if the admission below made some male human beings think that I'm on the market, I AM NOT ON THE MARKET.


NudistPoet JONATHAN TAD KETCHEN ( http://JTK.CA ) just made a major decision to OUT myself as being Bi-Sexual. It only took me 41 years to accept. As a Christian, it's been a difficult realization to come to, but Jesus Christ claimed to be "the way, the truth, and the life." So if he is "the truth" which I believe with all my heart, then I must be truthful as well about who I am if I claim to be his. I am his and he is mine. He saves us, the real us, not the masks we wear.

I am depending on Jesus Christ for my salvation. The Son of God is my only hope. I gave up on Obi-Wan Kenobi.
