God's truth for today's world

While growing up in Ohio, Sarah Mourer kept a secret she refused to divulge to anyone: she felt like a boy trapped in the wrong body.

Although those feelings eventually dissipated, the sensation of gender confusion and being different didn’t.

“I felt like something was terribly wrong with me,” Mourer says.

On the surface, Sarah seemed to have it all together as a straight-A student who finished first in her class. No one at the local Assembly of God church she and her family attended had a clue that the girl involved for three years in Junior Bible Quiz as well as youth group had serious problems.

As early as her elementary school years, Sarah battled suicidal thoughts. In high school she went binge drinking with friends. When she began injuring herself in college by cutting, friends convinced her to seek medical treatment.

In counseling, a psychiatrist prescribed antidepressants. However, Sarah didn’t reveal the homosexual feelings behind her struggle. Her parents, Duane and Marla Mourer, never suspected anything amiss.

Having same-sex attraction is not a sin in the Bible, rather it is simply a temptation to sin. Sin occurs when the temptation is given in to and homosexual behavior is engaged in. Just as a single heterosexual person must resist temptations to be sexually active, so must a person with same-sex attraction. Those, however, who engage in a homosexual lifestyle cannot be saved unless they repent.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NIV)  Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders  nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

The good news is that Jesus Christ can set people free from homosexual behavior and often from same-sex attraction.

1 Corinthians 6:11 (NIV)  And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
