Many people with same-sex attractions choose not to identify as homosexual, lesbian, gay or bisexual. Instead, their primary identification comes from their faith in Jesus Christ.

Many people with same-sex attractions choose not to identify as homosexual, lesbian, gay or bisexual. Instead, their primary identification comes from their faith in Jesus Christ. They identify as Christians, followers of Jesus and God’s children. And they choose to live according to biblical truths and values, reserving sexual expression for marriage between a man and a woman. We understand that this may be a difficult struggle, requiring help and assistance from other Christians.

The following articles demonstrate Focus on the Family’s support for those who choose this path and help explain some of the struggles that those with unwanted same-sex attractions encounter. For those making this journey, and for their families, friends and churches, these articles also give wisdom and point to other helpful resources – articles, books, support groups and counseling referrals.
