Good & Right in the Eyes of God?
...is perhaps the only book available which not only clearly explains the problem of homosexuality (many do that), but also has a clear, consistent, and workable strategy for winning the sexuality war for Godly Biblical standards.
Biblical standards are 100% in line with the best of scientific studies on sexual behavior (see Homosexuality Library on the Road to Emmaus, and the Brochure Page).
Part I, “Creation”, gives the Biblical framework from which Judeo-Christians must work on sexuality issues;
Part II, “The Fall”, tells how America and the West got sexualized; and,
Part III, “Redemption”, gives the strategy for winning the public arena back for sexual sanity, and testimonies of those who have indeed won in their personal lives, coming out of the homosexual life-style.
Winning requires forthright discussion about homosexual behavior – the subject which pro-homosexual persons have managed to keep out of public view because it is so ugly and obviously unsafe.
No debate can be won if the primary issue is not clearly identified. The primary issue is behavior, that is what homosexual (and pansexual) persons want the public to approve. They are not really interested in “marriage” or other rabbit trail issues, other than to keep the issue before the public eye, and to undermine the foundations of Biblical belief.
Homosexualists are riding point for the much broader pansexual goal which says that no sexual behavior is any better than any other. All (‘pan’) are equal morally. These people understand that the Biblical worldview and Good News is the worst enemy of their attempt to destroy all moral boundaries regarding sexual behavior.
The behavior is practiced because it provides, for a passing moment, pleasure which sugar-coats buried and irresolvable pain and brokenness – just as any other addiction.
For the individual, finding helpful rather than self-destructive means of healing the brokenness is the key to success. Many ministries and medical personnel are engaged in such help. Go to Exodus & to NARTH.
In the public arena, the issue must be resolved by showing the good reasons why anyone with common sense would forbid such behavior, as we commonly do with smoking, stealing, drug use, etc.
There is no evidence to show that homosexuality is inbred, genetic, or biologically caused. It is, at best, a misguided attempt to fill those inner hurts with gender relationships – but which turn out to be terribly destructive.
This battle can be won with truth and grace. We can raise the painful issues in a helpful and graceful manner, with respect for all persons, inviting them into an honest truth-seeking discussion. If we are wrong, we want to know, and we invite them to take the same stand – put the discussion on the table for open investigation so that truth can be discovered.
