2012 Courage/EnCourage Conference
Melinda Selmys gives gives an account of her life in which she lived the lesbian life style and then came to God and became wife and mother of six children. She goes on to give her assessment of the origins and ramifications of her same sex attraction, discussing whether it is intrinsic to a person’s nature as many would have us believe today, or whether it is simply a temptation for some people which can be resisted like any other temptation as part of one’s overall effort to conform their will to the will of God. She includes many references to philosophy, theology, psychology, and to her own personal experience to form an intelligent, Christian, broadminded view of a very complex issue.
