We must train our roving eyes not to fixate on tempting sights. These books emphasize the necessity of immediately "bouncing" your eyes away from anything or anyone who has an erotic or seductive effect on you. This can require almost constant wariness and effort in this sex-saturated culture! King David prayed, "Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way" Psalm Each of us must decide to not look lustfully at anyone, regardless of gender. In both of these books, the authors are sympathetic to those who struggle with SSA.
Their views are compatible with Scripture. They discuss various factors that commonly contribute to SSA. They emphasize that change is possible and point out that many people with SSA have dramatically changed their orientation as well as their lifestyles.

Their message of hope is very encouraging. They of course recommend seeking help from counselors with a biblical perspective. The organization they recommend is Exodus International www. We humans tend to feel sorry for ourselves. Each person, regardless of sexual orientation, tends to think his problems and temptations are unique, overwhelming and unbearable.
However, consider what Paul said, "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it" 1 Corinthians Paul is partly saying that we have much in common.
We all have human nature that exerts a constant downward pull toward decadence. And no matter what the temptation or trial, there probably have been millions of people with similar temptations and trials.
Realizing this can help us out of self-condemnation. And it can encourage us to learn from the experience of others rather than our learning the hard way by ourselves. We also have the same Creator who knows each one of us inside and out. And He is the Healer who knows how to repair us no matter how broken we are. No temptation will overwhelm us if we will quit trying to do battle by ourselves—if we will persist in crying out to God for help.
