Concerning Our Transition from Exodus International to Restored Hope Network

A Christian, who is faced with a decision whether to attend or not, processes through many questions with heartache. ...

Brokeback Mountain Brokenness

This is a difficult article to write as I have lived my own version of Brokeback Mountain. It was in 1982. It was mischievous, deceptive, sinfully alluring, shameful, painful and not without huge consequences to my life and also for the man with whom I was involved. Our families were deeply hurt and continue to deal with the shame of our choices from over 24 years ago. Th...

Any believer would welcome that in a crisis or during a difficult decision time, but the walk of faith with Christ doesn’t work that way....

Directed by Difficulties, Transformed by Trouble

Proverbs gives us a long list of sins that get us into trouble, such as impatience, dishonesty, selfishness, a hot temper, and even talking too much.

Trapped In Deception

"God created us this way," the gay priest told me, "and He loves us just the way we are." Sex became a distorted issue for me at an early age. I was molested about age six by a male friend of the family who was baby-sitting me. I was also exposed to some pornography at the same time. The porn was heterosexual, yet very devastating to my understanding of real love and God...
