Bearing Their Burden by Rev. Tom Eckstein
Some respond with hatred to people who struggle with same-sex attraction and teach that homosexuality is the unforgivable sin. Others affirm homosexuality by stressing either that Bible passages thought to prohibit homosexual behavior have been misinterpreted or that the clear biblical prohibitions against homosexual behavior simply have no authority over us today. In this book Pastor Eckstein shows how Scripture clearly condemns even consensual, monogamous homosexual behavior and that the biblical prohibitions against homosexual behavior still apply to us today. However, Pastor Eckstein also stresses that homosexual behavior is no worse than any other sin and that those who agree with God’s Word that their homosexual behavior is sinful and trust in the forgiveness provided for all sinners through God’s Son, Jesus, are holy in God’s sight and will receive strength from the Holy Spirit to say No to their homosexual desires and Yes to God’s loving plan for our sexual lives.
