Understanding Homosexuality

Many people with same-sex attractions find themselves feeling very conflicted. The Bible and orthodox Christian teaching through the centuries proclaim that God designed full sexual expression to be between a man and a woman in a marital relationship. But sexual feelings are strong, and our culture today shouts, “Go ahead, this is who you are.”

For many believers, faith in God and trust in His word are more important than attractions and desires. If you or a loved one is struggling with this conflict, the resources below are designed to provide help, encouragement and understanding.
