First, conversion therapy has been around for centuries and was promoted by none other than the apostles.
Second, more than 10,000 studies show that homosexual desires for most people are temporary. mygenes.co.nz/summary.htm
Third, if someone has unwanted SSA this does not mean they were born this way, science and the Bible refute this. I had unwanted SSA too btw.
Fourth, the fact that ONE person claims that conversion therapy has hurt others is anecdotal evidence and should be judged according, I am referring to NARTH’s former director. Also, this individual himself was struggling with deep seated homosexual tendencies and decided to give in to feeling “true to himself” because of his SSA. This is the “banner logic” of the gay lobby and they have been very successful, but can never prevent a person from having severe guilt from taking a path away from God. This is why the gay lobby and it’s supporters need constant affirmation, as seen on thread like this.
Finally, to get to the question the first step is trusting what God has told us; SSA is not normal nor natural so while a person may not be sinning having SSA there is something wrong (many of those who suffer from SSA erroneously believe they can lust after others of the same sex and not sin, but this is a lie of course.) Therefore, with accepting that there is something wrong with SSA the next step is asking God for help. We know from Romans chapter 1 that the** rejecting God and being arrogant can expose someone to [size=]UNWANTED[/size]homosexual desires,** in fact this happened to me. Therefore, the logical and very successful solution is to reject self and pride and submit to Jesus Christ. This has been used over the centuries and when a person is sincere it does not fail.
Also, it is worthy to mention that those Christians who support the gay lobby generally reject the God of Abraham and St. Paul’s writing and will in principal automatically disqualify any legitimate research in the area of homosexuality done by an orthodox Christian and as such their comments should be judged accordingly.
