Articles on Homosexuality from Desiring God

Here are a collection of articles from www.DesiringGod.org that I recently appreciated about the issue of homosexuality:

 

Homophobia Has No Place in the Church

This first one is written by a Christian man who experiences same-sex attraction. I really appreciated the ways he pointed out that many of us Christians might be homophobic without having realized it before. He emphasizes the need for love rather than fear.

 

Every Part of Us Needs God

This is a video by a Christian woman who experiences same-sex attraction.

 

Why Homosexuality is Not Like Other Sins

Quotation referring to 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – “It’s not the only sin mentioned, but it is different from all the rest, at least right now. At this moment in history, contrary to the other sins listed here, homosexuality is celebrated by our larger society with pioneering excitement. It’s seen as a good thing, as the new hallmark of progress.”

This article also criticizes both the American political left and the American political right, which is refreshing.

 

Is Homosexuality Really the Worst Sin?

This one is written by John Piper. It’s similar to the above article in pointing out good reasons for the Church to be talking about homosexuality today even though other sins are more devastating to more people.
