Same-sex attraction is a struggle that many people, both inside and outside the church, face in today’s world. We want to equip you with the biblical answers you need so you can encourage others and be empowered yourself.
Coming to the Creation Museum this spring is our popular Answers for Women Conference. At this conference you will be equipped and encouraged to provide biblical and yet compassionate answers to the hard questions people are struggling with today. One of the speakers at this event is Dr. Rosaria Butterfield, who will be using her own powerful testimony of redemption to help others help those who are struggling with same-sex attraction.
Here is an excerpt from AiG speaker Dr. Georgia Purdom’s blog about the upcoming event:
I am very pleased that Dr. Rosaria Butterfield, speaker and author of The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert: An English Professor’s Journey into Christian Faith, will present her testimony about her conversion from a homosexual lifestyle to pastor’s wife and homeschooling mom saved by the wondrous power of Christ and His Word. She will also be sharing how to help those struggling with same-sex attraction whether personally or a family member or friend. This is what Rosaria had to say about her testimony and ministry:. . . This life I live now, Christian homeschooling mom and pastor’s wife, is light-years away from where I was when the Lord claimed me for his own. Sixteen years ago . . . Back then, I was Dr. Rosaria Champagne, tenured professor of English and Women’s Studies at Syracuse University, scholar in 19th century literature and culture (and advocate of Freud, Marx, Hegel, Darwin), author of a book in feminist theory and articles in queer theory, partnered to a woman, and a proponent of LGBT civil rights. My conversion did not come easily, and I lost everything but the dog when Christ claimed me for His own. But my conversion left me clearheaded about God’s authority and holiness and the integrity of the Word of God. My conversion left me clearheaded about why God demands sexual purity and what the purpose of sexuality is. My conversion left me clearheaded about how repentance is the threshold to God. My conversion left me clearheaded about how I am to befriend my gay neighbor and advocate for a Christian world and life view today. My conversion left me clearheaded about how dangerous it is to measure life by anything but scripture. My conversion left me clearheaded about what God intends for women. My conversion left me clearheaded about how there is no shame in this life I live now for Christ alone.
