Child of the World – Is same sex attraction a sin?


Question: “Is same-sex attraction a sin?”

Answer: Same-sex attraction is a physical attraction to a person of the same gender. That is, when men are physically attracted to other men or when women are attracted to other women, then they are experiencing same-sex attraction. This is a homosexual attraction, and homosexual behavior is a topic the Bible is very clear about.

Homosexuality is often lumped in with other sexual immoralities such as adultery and lust (Genesis 19:1–13; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26–27; 1 Corinthians 6:9), so it is important to note that homosexuality is no worse (or better) than any other sin. God hates all sin—no matter what it is. Homosexuality is simply one of the many things listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9–10 that will keep a person from the kingdom of God.

The Bible says that people become homosexuals because of sin (

The Violet

Written by Karen Austin – Angels by Grace Pub. Aug. 2003


Beneath the hillside’s rocks and weeds

Competing for space with other seeds

A violet with tender, fragile shoots

Fights for a stronghold within the tangled roots

And as tiny leaves begin to form

Unprepared for the coming storm

A heavy darkness overcame and broke

The plant beneath the shadow of the Oak.


Crushed and spent by feet on the run

The violet turns its head to the rising sun.

And seeks the dew of each new morn

While hiding from its brother’s scorn.

A tethered flower not free to grow

As only its windswept friends could know

The plant gains strength from the world above

And repairs itself…except for love


And in its own appointed time

Recovers from the silent crime

It stands so quiet, brave and still

Rooted there against the hill

Borne on wings of defiance and hope

Grappling with life against the slope

Til at last Violet raises her regal purple crown

While worms crawl silently beneath the ground. *

Blessings to you.

Angels by Grace

Cyber Support Group

1994 I was facilitating a new ministry the Lord put on my heart. “The Angel Group” was a support group for women who had been sexually abused as children. It was the only Christian based support group within several counties and we had women traveling several miles to attend. The need was, and still is great.

One morning the Lord woke me up out of a sound sleep and told me, “Get up! You’re going to publish a magazine.” I had no idea how to do that but as always the Lord is faithful to walk us through whatever He calls us to do. Standing at the kitchen table with Christ beside me we put together a small outreach publication for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. All submissions were by survivors. The publication started out with only 25 mailings and by the end of four and a half years it…

The Real Church


There are some who say

The church is a sacred place—

And to let my feelings show

Would be a real disgrace.


So as I dressed for church

And finished with my hair—

I glanced into the mirror

To be sure my mask was there.


I heard the Lord so gently

Speaking to my soul

“My child, I long to touch you—

I want to make you whole…”


“I brought you here today—

Not for you to hide—

But that others on life’s journey

Could help you see inside…


“In the world, it’s hard

To let the real you show—

But here, My child, you’re safe—

It’s where hurting people go.


I long to help you children—

That’s why My church was born—

Come unto Me, I’ll help you mend

When you feel tossed and torn…”


My tears began to flow—and

My mask slipped to the floor—

But it’s OK—I’m welcome here—

I won’t need it anymore.

Blessings to you.

Taking the First Step

Cyber Support Group

The door slides open easily and quietly and my eyes fall on a stack of fliers lying on the counter top. I walk slowly toward them, curiosity pulling me toward them. Picking one up and reading I see the bold imprint at the top.


If you were sexually abused as a child, let the Lord help you heal.

As though the paper is on fire I suddenly drop it. Quickly glancing around in hopes that no one has seen me. “No one knows” rushes through my mind as I rush out the door. Leaving the flier behind does not alleviate the nervousness I feel. For the rest of the day the words on the flier keep playing over and over in my mind. Finally I return and quickly grab a flier from the stack and stuff it in my purse.

That is how many…
