Homosexuality

Homosexuality

We affirm God’s design for the two sexes – male and female – and believe that each is a glorious gift from God. Our sexuality is meant to be offered back to Him. For some, this means joining in a one-man, one-woman marriage – for procreation, union and mutual delight. For others, this means celibacy which allows for undivided devotion to Christ. Sexual expression is designed for the marital relationship, and homosexual behavior is one of many sexual sins that is outside God’s created intent and desire for us.

We are deeply concerned about the hearts and souls of those who identify themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual or “transgendered.” We want those men and women to know that God loves them with an everlasting love. Through salvation and the work of the Holy Spirit, He can empower them to live according to His design and standards for sexuality. He offers the grace to accept their true identity – not as gay, lesbian, or gender-confused – but as His sons and daughters, embracing their biological reality as male or female.

We are also concerned about homosexuality’s impact on families, the church and our culture. There has been a growing and very successful effort to gain not just acceptance but approval for homosexuality and “transgenderism” in many areas, including the church, the media, business and education. Society and families always do best when individuals follow God’s created intent for humanity.

FRIDAY FIVE: Where Grace Abounds Ministry

Mary Heathman came to Christ at the age of 27. She had dealt with sexual sin for years and through faith in Christ came to understand God’s plan for her as a woman. Ten years later, when her stepson came to her and told her he was gay, she turned to the Lord for guidance. She started Where Grace Abounds, a ministry to help those struggling with same-sex attractions and their families. Where Grace Abounds now has 6 staff members and reaches hundreds of people in Denver. Some of the staff sat down to talk with CitizenLink.

CL: We asked Roger Jones, the executive director, and Scott Kingry, the program director, what led them to the ministry?

Roger: In 1995, I came to Where Grace Abounds just as a participant. I was raised in a Christian home, realized that I had been struggling for a long time with same-sex attractions, and I didn’t know what to do with that. So, in the process of trying to figure that out, I found out about Where Grace Abounds and actually moved to Denver from Texas to participate in the program. I didn’t expect to find what felt like home there among people who understood what I was going through and could relate. It was a safe place to just talk and be myself and wrestle with my sexuality and my faith and how those interact together.
