CIT Comment on Living Out's Repudiation of Therapeutic Support ...

Core Issues Trust does not support the position, which is now embraced by increasing numbers of UK evangelicals, promoting a category of ‘gay self-acceptance’ rather than hope of change. This ‘conservative gay-affirming’ position equates unwanted same-sex inclinations to ‘orientation’ regardless of whether or not these have been acted on.

    Exploring the Terms

    You may as a Christian have heard over and over that all we need to do in our lives with our ‘issues’ is pray about them or ask someone else to pray for us. If this is the case, you’ll also have found out that this has not made any difference in your situation. And so you try to fight those feelings; you try to struggle against the temptation to ‘act out’ or to think lustful thoughts about other guys or even to watch content on the internet which arouses you.

    Who's doing the writing?

    I was brought up in a Christian home and although through most of my teenage years the attractions and interests I felt were completely for the opposite sex, towards the end of my teens I began to experience a physical attraction towards other guys. This began a two decade battle against these feelings and 'interests'. Read more

About Core Issues Trust

Core Issues is a non-profit Christian ministry supporting men and women with homosexual issues who voluntarily seek change in sexual preference and expression.

It respects the rights of individuals who identify as 'gay' who do not seek change, and supports dignity for LGBT persons. It does not support gay "marriage" - usually considered an "equality" issue, premised on the belief that being gay is "biological" and is therefore unchangeable. Core Issues Trust offers one-to-one support for individuals voluntarily seeking to leave homosexual behaviours and feelings. Please read our "Statement on Prejudice". The Royal College of Psychiatrists (2014) has recently affirmed that human sexuality is fluid for some, and therefore changeable in some cases. Core Issues Trust promotes the idea that individuals are not "victims" of their sexual desires.
