Brother Dino,
I should like to point out 2 things.
The fact that you have to ask the question is a answer within itself.
Only God, can answer that question, which is one we all struggle with, I hope.
That is why it is called the fear of God.
Psalm 14:1 New International Version (©1984)
For the director of music. Of David. The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
Romans 3:10 New International Version (©1984)
As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one;
1 John 1:8 New International Version (©1984)
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
Your eyes are the windows of your soul, so you need to reflect on what you see, is what is in your heart.
Maybe these links can help you find a faith family to help you walk in the light of the Lord.

I did a search for gay friendly churches in Tarpon Springs, FL.
On Amazon.com there are many books that deal with the issue and the struggle of being both Christian and Gay. So you can check them out.
Also set aside some time for you and God, read the Bible or other spiritual books, and let the Holy Spirit guide you and give you comfort on your journey.
Volunteer, for some charitable work, at a soup kitchen or a AIDS service organization.
When we give to others our joy is complete in loving God.
Be patient with yourself, nothing happens over night.

You are in my prayers. Be at peace with yourself, Love God above all things, and may His Holy Angels watch over and protect you.++++++++++++

dear dino many Christians struggle with porn. let me tell you if you already don't know the effects of porn they will never leave your mind they burn the image into your brain so when you least expect it will come before you.as in commune with god our father.. and it destroys what will love is all about! i would suggest finding a group of men that meet in your area and start being accountable to them on this! as for your relation ship with god only you are the only one that will know that! if you have accepted him and try to live for him on a daily basis the word says nothing can separate you from him. but the more you live in this world as in porn the day he returns to get us you will miss him be cause you will be to busy with porn and not him!

Sounds to me like you need to get out, meet people, engage with them, talk with them, make friends, develop relationships. If you do these things you will not turn inward so much or need porn as a surrogate for real human to human contact.

Falling in love and enjoying a monogamous relationship will not happen without you putting in a lot of hard work interacting with other people. Perfect love does not just arrive at your doorstep one day.

I would advise you not to wait till you die to hope to go to Heaven. That's too late. In my book Heaven is right here on earth - here and now. We each can help create Heaven for ourselves and for others by what we do here on earth. The good things we do, the example we set for others, the loving relationships we develop. Get to work now to find what Heaven can mean.

Leave the porn, or just watch a bit from time to time, and use the time you have on this earth to do good, enjoy life and love your fellow Man. Then you might find what Heaven can be.

Hi Dino, I love this quote from Brennan Manning's book "The Ragamuffin Gospel" (I encourage you to get a copy) regarding this subject: "The Good News means we can stop lying to ourselves. The sweet sound of amazing grace saves us from the necessity of self-deception. It keeps us from denying that though Christ was victorious, the battle with lust, greed, and pride still rages within us. As a sinner who has been redeemed, I can acknowledge that I am often unloving, irritable, angry, and resentful with those closest to me. When I go to church I can leave my white hat at home and admit I have failed. God not only loves me as I am, but also knows me as I am. Because of this I don’t need to apply spiritual cosmetics to make myself presentable to Him. I can accept ownership of my poverty and powerlessness and neediness". and :" Whatever our failings may be, we need not lower our eyes in the presence of Jesus. Unlike Quasimodo, the hunchback of Notre Dame, we need not hide all that is ugly and repulsive in us. Jesus comes not for the super-spiritual but for the wobbly and the weak-kneed who know they don’t have it all together, and who are not too proud to accept the handout of amazing grace. As we glance up, we are astonished to find the eyes of Jesus open with wonder, deep with understanding, and gentle with compassion". Brennan Manning
