Do churches have to carve out a new category for SSA (Same Sex Attraction), as well as every other type of sexual attraction Same Sex Attraction. (Mrs. Jones Sex Attraction. Sibling Attraction, Animal Attraction. etc. etc.) and pretend that these heart-oriented attractions are sinless, autonomous, and neutral territory? We revisit the Dordt College discussion briefly, but spend most of the time analyzing the latest Christian Reformed Church report on homosexuality. What is the difference between temptation and “natural attraction?” Is it okay to have a heart that defaults on a desire for that which God has expressly forbidden? Must Christians be labeled as with these orientations, identities, or attractions? Why must we always use the psychological terms the world has come up with, instead of sticking with biblical truth and biblical categories? When the world gives us a label, now we have to live down to the label!
