Working the Emotional Roots of Homosexuality - Part 3

Any effort to uproot homosexuality which does focus on the emotional roots of this evil desire will fail. The counselee must focus on his/her feelings in order to understand what causes homosexual attraction. Once these painful emotions are identified and the sinful reactions they gave rise to are acknowledged, the counselee can begin to do the work of breaking sexual addiction. Exchanging emotionally based lies for the liberating Truth of God has tremendous power to uproot homosexual desire once and for all!

Working the Emotional Roots of Homosexuality - Part 2

The pain caused by early wounds is not easily forgotten. Satan uses pain—particularly in childhood--to gain access to a person’s mind and will. Negative emotions that are not dealt with in a godly manner will be stored inside. When the person experiences another painful situation, that present pain connects with the reservoir of pain from earlier experiences causing an intense, exaggerated reaction. As a hurt child experiences pain, the alleviation of pain becomes the first consideration of his/her thinking. Thus, the thinking turns to whatever “works” to stop the pain.

Working the Emotional Roots of Homosexuality - Part 1

Since the primary cause of homosexuality is ungodly reaction to pain in childhood, a major part of counseling toward freedom focuses on cleaning out buried negative emotions. We refer to this as “working the emotions”. The point of the pain in childhood or adolescence is the point of the addiction. The mind of the sensitive child exposed to severe pain develops warped patterns of thought that reflect the child’s inability to reason in the face of overwhelming circumstances. Thus, the ungodly emotions become the child’s sole source of guidance.

What is Grief?

I have been learning much about what grief is through the loss of my husband, Ron. We loved each other in very meaningful, intimate and romantic ways for forty-five years. We worked together, laughed together, prayed together, sang together, ate together, lived and loved friends and family together. It was a godly union, a covenant relationship that was God’s plan to show His approval and blessing on us. When Ron passed on to glory, I had such pain and loss that I went into this period of grief I now experience.

The Kinsey Report - A Curse on America

The new movie about the life and work of Alfred Kinsey and starring Liam Neeson is an obvious attempt to portray this man as a pioneer of the Sexual Revolution, “freeing” people to have sex in any way, any time, anywhere, with any gender they feel like. He dreamed of a sexual utopia, where men would have many partners and so would women. He stated in early “sex education” classes at Indiana University as early as 1938, that the only sexual dysfunction was abstinence, delayed marriage and lack of variety in sexual experience.

The Big Lie

There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.
Proverbs 14:12

You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the grave
we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our
hiding place. Isaiah 28:15

They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator, who is forever praised. Amen.

Rebellion

Resistance to or defiance of any authority, control or tradition. This is the definition found in my Random House Dictionary of the word rebellion. It is a word that is difficult to deal with in the context of homosexual ministry in that the person feels he or she did not choose this sin and therefore there is a resistance to seeing that the very act of homosexual sex is a form of rebellion since we all know that God did not create this form of sex.

Purify Yourselves

Among Christian ministries that are working to help people who are ensnared in the addiction of homosexuality, there has developed a wide divergence of teaching in regard to being set free completely. By completely, we mean a person can be set free from the activity and the evil desires of this sin. Then that person would be without any homosexual manifestations and totally in touch with his or her created design of heterosexuality. This is the will of God and it is entirely possible.

Perversity

Perversity is a state of being willfully determined or disposed to go counter to what is expected or desired, contrary. It was refreshing to see in my dictionary which was published in 1967, one meaning of perversion which read: “any of various means of attaining sexual gratification that are widely regarded as being abnormal, especially when practiced habitually and in preference to normal heterosexual intercourse.”. Very politically incorrect, but right on the mark with God.

Looking on Nakedness

God created the world and placed Adam and Eve there to have dominion over the earth and subdue it--to be fruitful and multiply and increase in number to fill the earth. After Adam and Eve were united as husband and wife, They were naked and felt no shame. But after they ate of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, their eyes were opened and they realized they were naked, and they made coverings for themselves.
