And He will live in the soul who humbles himself and asks Jesus Christ to be Lord of their lives. It has to do with one Christian family and what homosexuality and pornography did to them. Catherine was 25 years old and pregnant when her husband deserted her and their children.
We also believe the homosexual lifestyle is wrong (sinful) and that God makes that very clear in His Word.
It is our responsibility as Christians to speak the truth in love, understanding that sin separates us from God, but the moment someone repents and makes Jesus Christ his or her Lord, fellowship and relationship with God can take place.
As Christians, we cannot say to the world that homosexuality is acceptable, but we can say to the homosexual, we love you and care about you.
We believe God, through Jesus Christ, can help you come out of the homosexual lifestyle, as He has promised to give strength when He is called upon.
That does not mean you will never have a moment of weakness or temptation, but freedom and peace are always just that sincere prayer of repentance away.
We have all sinned and fallen short of His glory, but we must deny our fleshly lusts, renounce them, and then trust His grace to help us. it is only through Jesus Christ that we can receive forgiveness, and that is a free gift.If you are a born-again believer who is struggling to find victory against the homosexual lifestyle, please do not give in to the pull that says, "It's ok to continue in that lifestyle and still consider yourself a practicing Christian." While anyone of us can cave in to temptation, we cannot minimize the importance of "putting on the full armour of God" that we might find victory. But we must "take up our cross and follow Him."If you have never been born-again and accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can come to Him just as you are, and if, in sincerity, you give your life wholeheartedly to Him, He will wash you and cleanse you, and by His grace deliver you from darkness.Christianity Today (11/11) said of Henri Nouwen who died Sept. They are no different." But I want to say something that shows why homosexuality and pornography are harmful and why they destroy families and society.21 (1996): "Acknowledged as one of the world's great spiritual writers, the renowned Catholic theologian left behind a wealth of insights..." The Fall'96 Record (a pro-homosexual newsletter of Evangelicals Concerned) said Nouwen taught psychology at Notre Dame and theology at Yale/ Harvard. Even if Ted Haggard were not guilty as this man says he is, I think the Christian leaders, as a whole, have been walking in deception and sin for some time, and they have bankrupted Christendom and at the price of truth, and souls have been lost because of it.It said: "For the past quarter century Nouwen was supportive of "a deep personal relationship based on a strong mutual attraction between two men or two women." It quoted Nouwen as writing (1971) that he who pretends not to have homosexual feelings is "like a man who pretends to be able to live without a heart." know that gay rights activists, the liberal media, and others are going to say, "See, why should we ban homosexual marriages? I pray there will be judgment in the house of the Lord - that the sexual perversions, the mysticism, the New Age, the over zealous marketing and deceptions will be eradicated and the true body of Christ will shine through (even though Jesus said the world will hate us - did the leaders forget that part?) As leaders like Rick Warren and David Jeremiah have contacted Lighthouse Trails, and as I have seen first hand their efforts to defend themselves and cover up the truth, I have wondered why they should still be called the leaders of the church.
