The Truth About Homosexuality

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.

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”.

Notes On Lesbianism

It is interesting to find that a number of women drawn into lesbianism had no sexual activity with a woman before being saved. I believe this change occurs due to the loosening of buried emotions at the receiving of the Holy Spirit and turning away from old addictive patterns that covered the emotions. This person may find, at the same time, a warm, loving Christian woman with whom she can share her new joy and her inmost thoughts and feelings.

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.

God's Opposition to Homosexuality Part 4

In part three of this article we showed that homosexuality is an evil desire. The Bible speaks of homosexual behavior as an objective evil action, in itself repulsive to God no matter what form it takes and no matter how it is rationalized. The person with homosexual feelings is cautioned against identifying with them and saying, “Since I have these desires, I must be a homosexual by nature.” Homosexual desire, though evil, is not inborn and can be uprooted.

God's Opposition to Homosexuality Part 3

When the Bible speaks of evil desire it illustrates at least two important principles. First, the object or relationship that is craved (and/or practiced) is objectively evil. The thing for which the person pines is sinful in and of itself. Because a wicked man craves evil he shows no mercy to his neighbor (Prov. 21:10). Harshness, ruthlessness, insensitivity are his delight and goal, and he relates in such a way as to achieve them.

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.

Marriage

It has been such a blessed experience in this ministry to have the privilege of working to help people become free of homosexuality--to break the power of the lie--and then to counsel the men and women who come with their new prospective heterosexual mates and to prepare them to be married. We have been working with eight men and one woman to prepare them to be married. What joy to see the dysfunction removed and the intended design of God come into place. Let's look at God's design for marriage.

Because of our many visits to Liverpool to establish a ministry there at Frontline Centre in Wavertree, Liverpool, we had the distinct pleasure of spending a number of weeks in the beautiful home of Dr. and Mrs. Chris Holcombe.
