and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us..." [Hebrews 12:1]
Some people were once gay but are no longer.
Some people have been changed.
Some people consider themselves refugees from the LGBT subculture.
Are people “born gay?”
Is it true that “gay is good?”
Can people change their patterns of sexual behavior and attractions?
What does “gay” even mean?
These are some of the questions our witnesses answer.
If you wonder about yourself or a loved one, get acquainted with these people. Read their stories. Look up their ministries. Consider their testimonies.
