What the Bible says about homosexuality

A Time for Healing

We find that some people struggle to reconcile their identity with their religious up-bringing.  Many were raised in families or churches that preached that you couldn’t’t be queer and be a Christian.

Are you curious what the Bible has to say about homosexuality?

We invite you to examine a few resources that we believe will bring understanding and healing:

A statement on “Homosexuality and Christianity” by the Rev. Michael Piazza, Dean of Cathedral of Hope in Dallas, Texas.

The “Letter to Louise” by retired Southern Baptist minister Rev. Bruce Lowe, the first recipient of our Hero of Hope Award.  Rev. Lowe writes, “I wrote this letter to Louise, reflecting what I have come to believe is the truth about homosexuality, what the Bible says and what God wants us to think and do about it.”
