God's Opposition to Homosexuality Part 2

In the part one of this article we stressed that God did not design the human body for homosexual union. Sexual intimacy as an expression of genuine romantic love is only to be known and shared in the heterosexual union of husband and wife. It is a gift our Creator gives to a man and a woman who join together in the covenant of marriage. The Bible identifies homosexuality along with fornication, adultery, rape, incest, prostitution, bestiality, looking on another’s nakedness and lust as sinful and commands the people of God to abstain from them.

God's Opposition to Homosexuality Part 1

Deceived individuals in our society are busily attempting to remove all prohibitions against homosexual behavior, fantasy and identity. Even within the church we hear calls for reversing the long-standing condemnation against homosexuality. More than one counselee in the throes of the emotional work to find freedom has yearned for God to permit homosexuality so there would be no need to resist the desires of the flesh. Yet the Word of God speaks with clarity and unity against homosexual practice and desire.

Who I Am in Christ

Have you confessed with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believed in your heart that God raised Him from the dead? If so, you are saved from the dominion of darkness and brought into the kingdom of Christ. You have been purified and born again because you have obeyed the truth which is the word of God. In Christ you have found reality. Now let the reality of Christ, Which tells you who you are, dwell richly within you.

When a Leader Falls

The news of Pastor Ted Haggard from the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado and the president of the National Association of Evangelicals, having been involved with a male prostitute and using drugs during the experiences, was devastating. We had met him and his wife while we were in Colorado Springs as part of a Focus on the Family Apologetics Conference for Teens. Our dear friends, Brian and Susan Kerkhoff attend that church and had introduced us to the Haggards after a Sunday morning service in August 2005.

Demystifying Temptation

One of the most frustrating things about working toward freedom from homosexuality is the sudden and unpredictable flare-ups of sexual desire. Numerous people have had the experience of attending a LIFE ministry meeting where they have gotten in touch with the truth of God and soon after leaving had a strong desire to have sex with someone. Some counselees are abruptly tempted by sinful desires while sitting on the subway or at work or even in church. When I was a pastor and struggling with homosexual feelings I often had thoughts of and desire for my homosexual partner while I was preaching!

What is this Craving for Love?

In understanding homosexuality, it is essential to go beyond the common explanations that it is love needs that have not been met, or a defensive detachment from the same-sex parent. These are starting points or catalysts, but they are not what homosexuality really is. Homosexuality is what grows out of the ungodly reaction to not having love needs met, and just giving love will not avail because our responses are twisted. Love can become dependency, we sexualize love, we want to control love, or we have no place for love.

Homosexual Covenant - Good News?

An ad for Dr. Tony Campolo’s recent book, “20 Hot Potatoes Christians Are Afraid To Touch” states that he is “not a man to shy away from controversy”. In the chapter, “Does Christianity Have Any Good News for Homosexuals?”, he has certainly stirred controversy. The definition of controversy is a “dispute concerning a matter of opinion”. In his introduction, Dr. Campolo says, “The time has come to be bold and to declare from the rooftops what I have been hiding away in my closet of opinions”.
