IS TRUE DELIVERANCE FROM HOMOSEXUALITY POSSIBLE?
To begin, we are only talking about homosexual sin — not homosexual feelings. Someone who has strong homosexual feelings is a product of one’s environment. Allow me to explain:
A pastor who was very close to God asked Him why he was not gay yet his brother was. His response was that when his brother was in the womb the father was being very unreasonable toward the mother and the brother took the mother’s side –hence more feminine. You will never read this in any psychological studies.
Too often, especially in the church, the subject of homosexuality and deliverance causes deep misunderstanding and painful rifts. To someone struggling with homosexuality, different churches can present different confusing message. Some insist that a repentant homosexual renounce all ties to the homosexual lifestyle and live out his or her days in celibacy. Others believe that since no one chooses to be homosexual, the only compassionate solution is complete acceptance. Neither viewpoint takes into the fundamental reality of every person’s need for love and acceptance.
There are those who are conscientious about their faith, and who really desire to live as God wants, and who are terrified of what the Bible says about their sexual desires which don’t go where they are supposed to. Such people would be left with an even greater burden because not only are they remaining part of a persecuted minority, but now they have failed as Christians too.
Francis MacNutt is a sincere and respected Christian healer takes the view that homosexuality has definite causes and can be healed. He claims Jesus Christ can transform the homosexual’s restoration: this healing will last and be fruitful and ultimately change the whole situation.
