It is commonly believed that efforts to help people change their unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA) are unsuccessful. The problem is that professional therapy outcomes are lumped together with outcomes of accountability, prayer, and pastoral counseling. Consequently, if pastoral counseling and prayer appear to have no effect on a person’s attractions, it’s declared that people can’t change and all efforts to help someone change are ineffective. This has led to a lot of confusion. That’s why the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity (ATCSI) is taking action to clear up this confusion. They are the leading scientific group of psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians, and other licensed clinicians who help people with unwanted SSA and/or other related psychological symptoms.
It never ceases to amaze me, how many people treat sinners as non-people. We are all sinners! We can and should believe that there are things that are absolutely wrong, but to forget that we are all made in the image of God is yet another sin.
Treat all people with love and kindness, but just because a person is generally nice, doesn’t mean that they are right about everything.
