1. Homosexuality and Same-Sex Marriage: An Apology, an Answer & an Assignment

Todd Wagner

People who claim to be followers of Christ have had two equally unloving responses to homosexuality: Either we have condemned homosexuals and told them to clean up their sin on their own, or we have enabled a sinful lifestyle in the name of tolerance. Here is an objective look at the Bible's teaching on homosexuality and an appropriate, loving response from those who follow Christ. http://www.watermark.org/media/homosexuality-and-same-sex-marriage-an- apology-an-answer-an-assignment/457/

4. Homosexuality: Why Isn't This Taught?!?! [WARNING: Explicit content]

Ricky Chelette, Jonathan Pokluda

Is someone who struggles with same-sex attractions just born that way? Is change possible?

5. God, Love, Sex, and Homosexuality

David Marvin

Whether through marketing slogan or cultural values, TV, music, movies, and media flood us with messages about life, our world, and ourselves. When it comes to homosexuality we are capable of listening to these messages, which tell us either that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality or that homosexuals are “freaks". In this episode we examine what God has to say about homosexuality and how we are to respond to it. Do we listen to God's message or to grace and truth. http://www.watermark.org/media/homosexuality/2132/

6. Same-Sex Bonding

Ricky Chelette, Jonathan Pokluda

In this episode, we hear the story of one of the leading authorities on the theology of homosexuality. This is a must-listen for all parents and anyone who struggles with sexual sin. This is also a great resource for anyone who has loved ones in the gay lifestyle. Ricky Chelette does an excellent job explaining that nature of sexual struggles and their origin. He has an amazing message of hope and shows, from the scriptures, God's design for sex. http://www.watermark.org/media/same-sex-bonding/1980/

7. Same Love

Jonathan Pokluda

In this message we tackle the hit song "Same Love." We explore the difficult topic of homosexuality, examining what God has to say about it, where the church has missed God's instructions on how to approach it, and where we all must change and conform more fully to Christ's embodiment of grace and truth. http://www.watermark.org/media/same-love/3206/

9. Seminar on Homosexuality

Matt Chandler

It seems this is increasingly becoming a difficult subject to handle well. Some pastors harp on this issue in a disproportionate, condemnatory way. Others, swinging the pendulum in the other direction, donʼt want to appear insensitive or right-wing and thus avoid it altogether. So it takes courage to tackle it head-on without being a jerk. http://www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/justintaylor/2010/06/23/matt-chandler-seminary-on- homosexuality/
