Ezekiel, Jehovah's prophet
Many of us gay Jehovah's Witnesses have committed homosexual acts before we got the truth or even after we came into the truth, things too perverted to mention. Then we learned or took to heart Jehovah's view of homosexual acts. Can you identify with this image of how we felt about such acts and that we needed to stop and change?
The emotional guilt we feel can result in oppression. As it states in Ecclesiastes 7:7, "oppression can drive the wise one into madness." Oppression in this case could mean mental pressure or distress. And madness could imply thinking that is very dangerous.
Thus, 'mental distress can drive the wise one into thinking that is very dangerous.'
We could think we are unworthy, unworthy even of Jehovah's forgiveness. The danger here is what it states in 2 Corinthians 2:11, "so that we may not be overreached by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his designs." That's his design here, to make us feel we are too unworthy for Jehovah's forgiveness, to make us give up, and to make us stop serving Jehovah.

So, we read these words in Ezekiel 33:14-16:
And when I say to the wicked one: “You will surely die,” and he turns away from his sin and does what is just and righteous, and the wicked one returns what was taken in pledge and pays back what was taken by robbery, and he walks in the statutes of life by not doing what is wrong, he will surely keep living. He will not die. None of the sins he committed will be held against him. For doing what is just and righteous, he will surely keep living.’
We strive to put away homosexual acts, "by not doing what is wrong,"
so that we can "surely keep living"!
And how is this possible?
Because of God's love in providing the ransom for us sinners.
We thank Jehovah for the ransom,
and we thank him for his boundless love and patience.
As it states in 2 Peter 3:9 - "Jehovah is not slow concerning his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire anyone to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance."
