So much misunderstanding and misinterpretation exists relative to Gay-Lesbian issues.  The Bible does not even begin to say about Gay-Lesbian people what most preachers and ministries would try to suggest.  In an effort to foster and encourage a better, more Scriptural and godly understanding of Gay-Lesbian issues and people, Pastor Charles Morrow has spent years researching and writing the following list of articles. 

The following articles and Bible Studies have mostly been written by Pastor Charles Curtiss and are designed to assist GLBT believers find faith and reconciliation.  Any articles by other authors are clearly credited to the actual authors.  These articles and studies are affirming in nature, so the reader needn't fear that they are being lured into reading something on one premise, only to be sideswiped by material that is homophobic, hateful, or demanding change on the part of the GLBT individual.  We hope you are blessed and helped by this material which represents over a decade of serious thought, prayer, and writing on the part of our pastor.   For further reading on this important theological issues, please consult our suggested reading list for books, articles, website's, etc authored by a number of men and women from a variety of theological backgrounds and viewpoints.
