How were you converted out of homosexuality?
I wasn’t. I was converted out of unbelief. There’s no conversion from gay to straight. The conversion that is relevant in the Bible is from a heart that was at enmity with God to a heart that is at peace with God. “Regeneration makes a new head for knowledge, a new heart and new affections for holiness (2 Cor. 5:17),” says Thomas Boston in his outstanding Human Nature in its Fourfold State. The Christian answer to the issue of homosexuality is not a heterosexual relationship but holiness, as Bible teacher and author Christopher Yuan has so powerfully said. And sexual holiness is fidelity in marriage and chastity in singleness.
The church hasn’t always gotten that right. Anyone who is a Christian has to give up everything, and what God gives back is up to Him. Some people have a harder cross to bear. For people who are struggling with same-sex attraction and are faithful believers in Jesus Christ, please do not give them a greater cross to bear.
