Men’s One-Day Study: “How to Constructively Deal with Homosexuality”

This material was also presented as a part of our twice a year Men's One-Day Study.  As with previous efforts in this series, it was originally designed for preachers, but is open to any men interested in studying God's word in a more advanced way.  This particular study was specially written and delivered to help preachers, elders, deacons, and fathers deal with the subject of homosexuality in a constructive and productive way.  The session topics covered are: Thinking Through Homosexuality; Adolescent Motivations for Homosexuality; Homosexuality and the Bible; and Constructively Dealing with Homosexuality.  An Appendix of additional resource articles (both true and some that are included only for illustrative purposes) is also included.   After you download it, but BEFORE you decide to print it, please understand that this is a Word file consisting of 51 pages (over 24,500 words).
