Those Seeking Freedom

Addicted to Acceptance

When a child is born into a family, there begins a discovery by the child of who he or she is. This discovery is done by relating to the mother and father during infancy and early childhood. If the parents pay attention to the baby, pray over the baby, speak to him or her, laugh and play with the baby and attend to the needs of the baby, the formation of the baby’s personhood can develop naturally. But if there are distractions, crises, dysfunction in the parents, inability to express love or give the baby what he or she needs, then the baby cannot grow and discover who he or she is.

Selfhood

A major ingredient for moving into freedom from homosexuality is having a healthy selfhood. So many people who come to be set free from this sin have never realized who they are as an individual. There are various reasons for this lack. One reason is the lack of attention, affection and affirmation that the parents should have given to a child so he or she would realize they are unique and individual with qualities that are given by God to bless the world.

A New Response to Pain - Part 1

Homosexual attraction, the evil desire for unhealthy same-sex relationship or contact, develops in children and pre-adolescents largely as a result of practiced ungodly reactions to pain. As a child experiences pain and emotional upset, the temptation to seek an unhealthy, ungodly way to make the pain go away will loom large. The more the child gives in to these ungodly suggestions, the more he/she opens to spiritual evil.

The Walk of Faith

As I was talking to Bel, one of the leaders of the ministry in Liverpool, she said to me, "After one has a revelation of the internalized pain and how that connected to the sex drive and even knows when the pain began and has worked through most of the ungodly reactions to that pain, this is not enough. There must be something further to stop the addiction." I quickly agreed with her. We saw together that we must work by the three cardinal biblical principles of freedom and building a temple of praise to God set forth in the Mt. Moriah teaching. Those principles are:

No One is Created Homosexual

In the problem of continuing acceptance of homosexuality as a viable lifestyle, there is no greater question that needs to be addressed than the question of whether or not a person is created homosexual. If in fact God creates people with intrinsic homosexual desires and planned for them to live out those desires, then gay marriage, gay adoption, gay spousal benefits and acceptance of homosexuality as a viable lifestyle would be right and good.

Chris's Journal Entry

I’ve been around this ministry for years now and more recently I’ve been riddled by thoughts – will I ever change, am I going to keep making the same mistakes over and over again? OK, so I asked those questions just about every four months. But I’m still not interested in wearing a t-shirt that says "Lifer at LIFE". I want to move on, I want to be married, so I’ve been motivated to consider living another way.

Working the Emotional Roots of Homosexuality - Part 6

Putting an End to Contending with God. Homosexual desires are often rooted in a deep-seated case against God. Hot emotions such as anger, disappointment, confusion, or fear are stored from painful situations in childhood. From the pain the person questions why God permitted such things to happen. Many feel frustrated that God seemed to ignore their prayers and did just what He wanted, permitting the suffering to continue or even get worse. To many, it seemed like they were pushing against an immovable wall or blocked from the happiness they sought.

Watch Your Words

It is truly eye-opening to see the strong statements in the Bible about the power of the tongue and the import of what we say on our lives. I suppose we should not be surprised, given the fact that God spoke the world into existence, and we, being made in His image, speak our world into existence. The most powerful words to shape our lives is our confession of faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and our personal Savior. This makes us a new creation in Christ, who comes to dwell in us.

Think on These Things

In the great eighth chapter of Romans, which is the solution to St. Paul's wrestling with his sin in chapter seven, we see a profound truth. It is that those who live according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires, set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh. But those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit, set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the Holy Spirit. So the life of the Spirit requires a mind change.

Is Homosexual Desire a Sin?

Within the past month on the television broadcast of 20/20 there were three ministries that help people out of homosexuality represented and they put forth the message that people who have homosexual desire for the same sex will always have that desire and the need then is only to learn to choose not to act on those inherent desires. This is departure from the scriptures in that we are called to be holy as He is holy, to be purified, to be washed, sanctified ( set apart for holy use) and justified (made as if we had not sinned). As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
