Archives For homosexuality

My title is a much debated question in our world today. But not so debated if you are accepting all the popular press on the issue that says homosexuality is an inborn trait.

But what if there is no research to back up that claim of a genetic cause of homosexuality?

What if homosexual identity and behavior is developed under certain conditions in a person's life? What if it could be prevented or healed?

A couple weeks ago I had a chance to speak at one of the most timely and powerful conferences I have ever attended. It was called.... Parent Pipeline Project.

Ricky Chelette of Living Hope Ministries was one of the presenters who literally had a crowd of parents on the edge of their chairs tackling one of the most controversial questions of our day:

How is gender identification formed in children?

As I took copious notes, I knew I had to share what I learned with my fellow parents....even if some may not agree/like this message.

I came home and found a vimeo link so you can learn what I learned.

Christian parents, we may not want to learn about this issue. But we have no choice! 

So many families are being affected by homosexuality, lesbian experimentation and gender confusion that we must ask ourselves the tough questions and then make the necessary adjustments to our parenting priorities to guard and protect our children.

In this seminar, I learned that my sons and my daughters need certain things from Doug and me in order to develop healthy gender identification and healthy sexuality.

Please invest the time and watch this teaching. Be warned, it is forthright and not for your children to view with you. 

My heart is to help you and your family as together we navigate this sexually confused generation. I am so grateful that our Father forgives and heals our families from even the most complex issues. If this video hits you in a convicting way or causes you to need prayer and support, please email me or call. I would count it a privilege to intercede for your family!

In this vimeo link, Ricky only briefly talks about the female version of this story. The full teaching on the issue of female gender development and the theory of lesbian sexuality are taught in this fuller DVD resource: Why? Understanding Homosexuality and Gender Development in Females.

Teaching What is Good

My son Lucas was angry. He emailed me this article that had made him furious.

At first I was having trouble recognizing the problem until I looked deeper at what he was saying.

"Mom, this is deceptive, horrible journalism and people in my generation are not going to recognize the problem!"

And he was right. This article's title did not even agree with its content. There was no "gay gene" found, and yet the whole slant of the article implied a genetic discovery.

Parents, we cannot expect our kids to sort through this hotbed issue of homosexuality without our help. Never have I seen one issue shipwreck more people's faith.

What are you doing to assure that your kids are not confused by the indoctrination happening on a daily basis?

Here are 3 big reasons are kids are getting confused, and the tools you need to set the record straight in your home.

1. Born gay is taught as fact.

A genetic origin has never been proven. In fact, it has been disproved when looking at identical twin studies.

2.  Homosexual relationships are portrayed as beautiful.

The media is not portraying the whole story, but our kids will not know any better unless we tell them. Our kids deserve to know the whole story. And the story is not pretty!  Read Larry Tomczak’s article Why Homosexual Love Stories Don't Have Happy Endings. It lays it out straight. (It is graphic and clear. Let the Lord lead you as to how to share this data.)    Also read Bert M. Farias’s The Raw, Naked Truth About Homosexuality.

3. The church is now sending a mixed message.

The attempt at changing the "sexual rules" that have stood for all Christian history is really just the old idea of revisionism. Do your kids understand this concept that has been tried on many different issues since the foundation of the church? 

If you need more help talking about the issues that are shaping this generation's worldview, check out our resource Not Open: win the invisible spiritual culture war. We have videos, audios, and discussion guides to help open the conversation in your home.

Can a homosexual person change?

If you ask the LGBTQ ...they say no.

If you ask many physicians and counselors....they may say no.

And if you even ask some Christian leaders, they may say no!

But is that what God says about these issues?

Or can He change, deliver and heal?

In this day when the issues of sexuality are dividing our nation and splitting the church, we must venture into these questions with a searching heart. Our children deserve to have some answers!

This week I am going to share with my readers 3 important testimonies from 3 special friends of mine who are living healed and free.

 I encourage you to consider sharing these stories with your family and friends. They may never have heard these kinds of stories.

Please let me be clear. I am in no way wanting to minimize the pain and suffering from those who find themselves trapped in unwanted same sex attraction. Sexual addictions and sexual wounds are amazingly complex.

Yet these problems are not too hard for God. It is so important to offer hope to those who need help!

Our God is mighty. And merciful. And loving. He yearns to pull His children out of the pit of destruction!

I was one of the about 100 people at the meeting reported on in this recent trending story online.

Linda's story needs to be shared.  Will you join me in praying for her as God is opening doors for her to share compassion and hope?

I have heard this thought from parents from one side of the country to the other…

…Christian parents who have told me at Christian events that their kids are being shaken at their roots by the LGBTQ agenda.

Is it cool to be bisexual? I guess that depends on who you ask!!! (And surely you know my answer!)

Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, recently blogged about this article: Bisexuality on TV: It's Getting Better.

When I first saw the title, I was encouraged. I thought maybe the Christian side was winning for a change...  I was wrong.

If you can stomach it, I suggest you look at a portion of this article.  This agenda to move sexual boundaries is very organized and intentional. I learned a lot about how the mindset works by reading this perspective.

Thank you, Dr. Mohler, for referring us to this Atlantic magazine article. I needed to read how my opposition sees this issue.

I needed to understand how people are literally interested in brainwashing my kids. I needed to see clearly so I can clearly respond to my children from a position of truth.

I am intentionally observing this from a distance so I can more effectively help my kids navigate these tactics. But I refuse to watch these shows or allow them into my home’s airwaves!

Parents, I know reading this stuff is no fun. But if we do not wake up now and recognize our enemy's tactics.....when will we????

I heard from several of you concerning our transgender issue in our local university. We are still working on the issue, but......

Now we must consider the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).  This is a new, very real threat to our families poised in our US Senate. 

Though this is of concern to all Americans, we in Illinois are being asked to address this by the Illinois Family Institute.

“If passed, no public elementary school or small business owner will be permitted to refuse to hire a man masquerading as a woman,” says Laurie Higgins in her post for IFA here.

I am so sad to report that both of our Illinois senators are among the 55 co-sponsors the bill.

Here’s what NBC reported about ENDA:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that the Senate will vote on a bill to expand gay rights in the workplace before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Sen. Harry Reid says the senate will consider the "Employment Nondiscrimination Act, which would provide work against discrimination on gender identity."

In my post last week I raised the question as to whether our school children would soon be taught by the gender confused among us. I did not know how near we are to seeing this threat realized.

I urge you to contact your elected officials over this critical matter.

We have consulted our state representatives over our local university's policies on allowing a self -proclaimed transgendered male in our women's locker room. The representatives were alarmed and said they were not aware of the problem but believe it must be resolved in the courts of America.

If they didn't even know of the issue, perhaps step one of our solution is to tell others about this move by a radical minority group to invade the privacy and safety of our families!

Are you up to date on this new definition of transgender?  I posted about this here, quoting from the GLAAD Media Reference Guide:

Transgender An umbrella term (adj.) for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from the sex they were assigned at birth. The term may include but is not limited to: transsexuals, cross-dressers and other gender-variant people. Transgender people may identify as female-to-male (FTM) or male-to-female (MTF). Use the descriptive term (transgender, transsexual, cross-dresser, FTM or MTF) preferred by the individual. Transgender people may or may not decide to alter their bodies hormonally and/or surgically.

Please comment on this post, and let us know what you are doing in your community to protect children from this threat.  If you are reading this by email, click here and scroll down to comment.
