Homosexuality- The two essays by Carl Pether
“The function of a good book is to stand like a signpost directing the reader toward the Truth and the Life. That book serves best which early makes itself unnecessary, just as a signpost serves best after it is forgotten, after the traveler has arrived safely at his desired haven. The work of a good book is to incite the reader to moral action, to turn his eyes toward God and urge him forward. Beyond that it cannot go.” A W Tozer, Most books written about homosexuality and the Church discuss the issues of Biblical authority, social reform and how to change unwanted sexual attractions. REVIVAL AND HOMOSEXUALITY discusses these same topics but points to the One who brings those changes to the Church, society and in individual’s lives. These sort of radical shifts in understanding and changes in people’s lives have been called revival’s in the past but never before has anyone linked these subjects in the way REVIVAL AND HOMOSEXUALITY does. The A W Tozer quote above is an example of how REVIVAL AND HOMOSEXUALITY looks at these topics in the light of teachings about church renewal and intimacy with God.About the author: C J PETHER discusses how personal this subject is to him. As a Christian who was attracted to the same sex, the author opens up his entire life through sharing testimony and personal insights throughout. You are taken on a journey of rediscovery of Biblical truths and a journey back to faith. As a former youth minister of a Church and Bible college graduate the author rejected his faith when he found his sexual attractions to strong, both lonely and feeling misunderstood, Christianity didn’t seem to have the answers. But when he came back to faith through the loss of a loved one the author had to find answers because the reality of God was too strong for him to deny. Because of this personal experience he speaks with authority, wisdom and love always directing towards the feet of a merciful Jesus who with love says, “Go and sin no more.”This book is written as a word of wisdom for any church leader looking for answers on its subjects. It is a wakeup call to a sleeping church. And a love letter from God to the LGBTQ+ community as well as a guide to those with unwanted same sex attraction.
