Title
Developmental and Ethical Issues in Homosexuality: Pastoral Implications
Abstract

The contemporary church has been challenged to legitimatize homosexuality and even to ordain homosexual persons. Yet scriptural concepts lead the church to approve sexual expression only within the framework of heterosexual marriage. By exploring concepts of sexual development and examining the church'€™s ethical stance on homosexuality, the authors show how homosexual orientation can be approached within a supportive Christian ministry while adhering to the church'€™s traditional values. Specific pastoral guidelines on the issue of homosexuality are offered.
