Love the Homosexual : A Message to the Christian Church
Love the Homosexual: A Message to the Christian Church is a manual designed to educate the Christian church and bring a perspective from an ex-homosexual on the complexities of engaging homosexuals in the Christian church. This manual discusses the trial and tribulations, victories and defeats of the Christian church over the past decade in regards to homosexuality. In 2004, the Christian church appeared resolute in its belief on homosexuality and same-sex marriage (SSM). In less than a decade, the Christian church became divided on its beliefs; some favored SSM and others opposed but both used tenets of the Christian faith to affirm their position. The splintering of foundational beliefs and with the advancement of the homosexual agenda, the Christian church seemed to be dazed and confused. Ms. Linda addresses a few reason why the church lost its way and relented on what it believed for centuries. In addition, Ms. Linda shares her personal experiences as a homosexual, as an ex-homosexual, and her experiences as a mentor to other ex-homosexual.
