Same-Sex Attraction: A Man's Perspective

Our western culture encourages us to embrace and encourage same-sex attraction as normal, appropriate, and just as “right” as any other sexual relationship. But is it?

In this transparent and sometimes emotional interview, Dr. Chuck F. Betters talks with three men and their Harvest USA counselor about their struggles with same-sex attraction. No question in the interview was considered "off limits," and listeners will hear these men address such issues as: How people who loved them treated them, even though they disagreed with their life choices; how their churches responded; and ways they were hurt by people who claimed to be Christians.

They talk about their greatest misconception about God’s view of sex and homosexuality, and how same-sex attraction is similar to other sinful choices.

Listeners will be encouraged to hear scriptural principles that will help guide relationships with loved ones who identify themselves as gay, and how parents can create a safe place for their kids in order to talk to them about same-sex attraction.

Like all of our Help and Hope resources, this interview goes beyond a discussion of this life crisis, and digs deep into how each of us can grow in our own walk of faith as we process and face the challenges of living by grace in our messy world.
