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.

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.
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.
People are deceived by this cult and need to be aware of the deception. I know these facts to be true.
