Telling them you are praying that they change, or that they will likely "straighten out" as they get older, will only distance them from you. Put others' opinions aside and focus on how God would lead you specifically. His sexual orientation didn't change, and he became addicted to drugs and eventually died of an overdose. Reparative therapy can cause depression, anxiety, drug use, homelessness and suicidal ideation. We all were!
Our son used a related video presentation by Matthew Vines addressing these six verses to his home church, as his way of communicating his belief that his orientation was not condemned.
Matthew Vines, author of " God and the Gay Christian ," has attracted more thanviews on YouTube for a lecture he gave challenging the argument that Scripture bars same-sex relationships. It is simply foolishness to continue to read Scripture with eyes of the first century. While we love others, God is at work in ways we can't see. The tragedy could have easily driven the Robertsons from the church.
Cling to God in this time, and you will discover something wonderful -- for you and your family.
