From the Pit to the Promise – My Journey Out of Homosexuality & Into the Promises of God
As a child, Chris Anthony Delaney felt different from other boys. As he grew into adolescence, he found himself in a pit battling fear, rejection, sexual abuse memories, abandonment, self-hatred, rage, anorexia, bipolar disorder and major depression. After living the gay life for twelve years, God directed him to 1 Corinthians 6:9-13. The words in verse 11, “and such were some of you…” brought Chris Anthony hope. God promised Chris Anthony that if he would follow Him and His ways, He would radically transform him from the inside out.
Chris Anthony shares how God delivered him from the demons attempting to destroy his life and into His promise of wholeness. He will also help you learn:
• Causes of homosexual attraction and the difference between our feelings and behaviors. • What the Bible says about homosexual behavior and ten steps to freedom. • How the church can respond effectively.
