The True Meaning of Change

In this fantastic secular article Tim Wilkins explains that the goal of therapies attempting to resolve same sex attractions is not to convert to heterosexuality.

Society in general and churches in particular mistakenly believe freedom from homosexuality is marrying, having 2.3 children and a dog in the back yard. As I wrote earlier, the term former homosexual is inadequate if not inappropriate.......We mistakenly think a person who has found freedom from same-sex attractions is now heterosexual. The former homosexual man or woman may now experience heterosexual feelings, but heterosexuality should never be his nor the churches’ goal.
Many gay men ask me how to cultivate a romantic/sexual attraction to women. I tell them that is not the issue; the issue is a distorted/broken image. (I have often thought how devious our adversary is. He not only confuses men and women regarding their sexual identity, he also confuses them and the church as to what healing really is, thus compounding the problem.)
By dealing with the primary issue, gay men begin to see themselves as masculine and lesbians begin to see themselves as feminine; the same-sex attractions diminish and in many cases opposite-sex attractions occur.

සමලිංගිකත්වයෙන් මිදුණු පුද්ගලයෙකු විවාහ වී දරුවන් හදීම අනිවාර්ය නොවේ.  මානසික උපදේශනයන් නිසා පුද්ගලයෙකු විරුද්ධ ලිංගිකයන්ට ආකර්ෂණය වුවද, මානසික උපදේශනයහි මුලික අරමුණ "විෂමලින්ගිකත්වය" නොවේ.
