4. If you were convinced that God opposed all forms of homosexual practice, would you follow Him anyway?
In my book, I quote the words of a pastor in England who remains same-sex attracted but who renounces those attractions and lives a celibate life. He said that Jesus requires the same thing from all of us—namely, everything—and that He Himself is enough for us. This man's witness speaks volumes to all of us.
Would you reject the One who died for you if you came to the conclusion that He did not approve of same-sex relationships? Would your homosexuality come first and Jesus come second?
I know these are terribly weighty issues, and I don't write things lightly. In fact, as God Himself knows, it is love that compels me to write, and I do so with pain in my heart.
Will you take these things prayerfully before the Lord? We are praying and interceding for you!
