How to Care for Teenagers with Same-Sex Attraction

by Ben Holden on November 18, 2021


Our culture is increasingly trying to normalize same-sex attraction and issues surrounding LGBT+, a counter-biblical view of sexual and gender identity. As parents, we want to help our kids have a true and healthy identity in Christ that aligns with God's Word.

Jared Kennedy provides help in how to respond to our kids if this is something that they are walking through. He gives great insight into how to lovingly care for them while pointing them to the truth of Scripture.

Kennedy writes:

We can persevere with faith, knowing that we share in Christ’s sufferings so we may also share in his glory (Rom. 8:17). For those who do not shrink back, God has prepared a great reward. We do not belong to those who shrink back to destruction but to those who persevere and are saved (Heb. 10:36-39).
