It's not surprising people think Christians hate homosexuals. They see the way we often treat them. Kyle's sad story was similar to others I'd heard. After 25 years of immersion in the gay lifestyle, he wanted out. His choice to follow Jesus meant a day-to-day struggle to stay celibate because simply becoming a Christian didn't change his same-sex desires.

With God's help, though, he was winning the battle. Kyle thought his church would be a safe harbor during the storm. But when he "came out" to his pastor and a counselor, both told him to never speak of his plight again.

His church forced him back into the closet. Fifteen years of celibacy later, Kyle came out a second time. Surely things have changed, he thought. It must be safe now. After all, everyone has struggles and temptations. This time he hoped his new church would come alongside and pray for him.

Stretching every day is not a civil right, nor is going to the gym, walking. Homosexuality: Know the Truth and Speak It with Compassion. Homosexuality is here to stay. So to know the truth isn't merely about the truth of homosexuality—whether it's right or wrong—but the truth of Jesus and His power to transform men and women.

We know it works. It's been tried and tested.
