Is it possible to maintain a decent relationship with Christ with any sort of sin in the way? Watch porn all the time? No. Compulsive liar? Nuh-uh. Cheatin' on your s/o? Stealing things? Worrying? Being a gossip?  From personal experience, I say no.  These things even though they are more "accepted" amongst the denominations can be just as problematic and destructive to your relationship with God.

While I do think homosexual believers exist and are totally valid in their walk with Christ, what it boils down to is, how are they living their life? Are they living in a worldly fashion or trying to be Christlike? Is this a temptation, a weak spot of theirs or is it how they live?  Even Jesus himself was tempted by worldly things, lust for power being the main one I can think of right now. 

I mean, I guess it's POSSIBLE to be an unrepentant homosexual believer, but given all the verses about how sin drains you and dissolves your relationship with God(Rom 8:9-16), how you will be rejected by God for being "lukewarm"(Rev 3:15)... would anyone really want to stay in that boat?

I went ahead and moved this to the "ask a Christian" forum. :) I don't have anything additional to add, I think Boogles makes many excellent points!

it is not who you are, but how you live your life. Is the life you are living pleasing to the Lord (1 Thessalonian 4), and in verses 3-6, it is clearly stated... 

3 God wants you to be holy and to stay away from sexual sins.

4 He wants each of you to learn to control your own body[a] in a way that is holy and honorable.

5 Don’t use your body for sexual sin like the people who do not know God.
