George Carneal grew up in the ’70s, raised by a Southern Baptist minister in the ultra-conservative Bible Belt where his world revolved around the church, country fried chicken and trying to fit in with other boys. As disco music pulsated through the speakers in his bedroom, he plotted his escape from the misery and boredom of Southern suburbia before landing in Los Angeles; a city of glitz and hedonism. Much like Alice as she traveled through the looking glass, this is George's journey through a queer culture fantasyland filled with drag queens, drugs and dangerous situations before discovering healing, joy and peace in Christ. This true story details his struggles in a religious world at odds with, and often hostile toward, homosexuals.

About the Author

For years I struggled with my Christian faith and homosexuality. Raised in the South (the Bible Belt) by a father who was a Southern Baptist minister, I wanted to share my painful journey through a secular world at odds with homosexuality and a religious world that is hostile to homosexuals. Perhaps sharing the journey through the eyes, and mind, of a confused child dealing with homosexuality will give some insight into the pain and difficulty of navigating these two worlds. I eventually spent approximately 25 years immersed in the world of homosexuality and will briefly share the pitfalls of that life. This is not an attack on, nor am I a spokesperson for, the LGBT (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender) or Christian communities and my story is not a representation of what all LGBT individuals experience. This is merely my journey and what I learned along the way. Thank you for reading.

This is a short, readable biography.
The enemy of our souls led George Carneal along a brutal path by means of lies.
But Jesus, who is the truth, set him free.
I hope this book gets into the hands of many, to be set free from whatever lies they believe.

I read the book in 3 days, could of read it in 1 if I had the time, I didn’t want to put it down. The writer did an amazing job and didn’t mince words but came from a place of no judgement, just love and honesty. I highly recommend this book for anyone struggling with SSA or if you have a loved one who struggles, I also think every pastor needs a copy in his library....thank you Mr. Carneal for sharing your story.

Some parts of the book made me uncomfortable,
It definitely opened my eyes into a different culture. I thought it was extremely brave of him to lay his sins bare for all the world to see!
Even though I personally disagree with the authors free will and choice,
I think this book could help other individuals or their family members in the same situation, regardless of your individual religious beliefs or if you have non religious beliefs.

What is TULIP in Calvinism? by Matt Slick

The TULIP of Calvinism is the acronym which represents the five primary points which represent Calvinism : Total depravity, Unconditional election, Limited atonement, Irresistible grace, and Perseverance of the saints. Hence, they are called the five points of Calvinism. The five points "emerged from the Synod of Dort (1618– 19)." 1 "The system of Calvinism adheres to a very high view of scripture and seeks to derive its theological formulations based solely on God’s word. It focuses on God’s sovereignty, stating that God is able and willing by virtue of his omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence, to do whatever He desires with His creation. It also maintains that within the Bible are the following teachings: That God, by His sovereign grace predestines people into salvation; that Jesus died only for those predestined; that God regenerates the individual where he is then able and wants to c

Medical theories on the cause of death in crucifixion Matthew W Maslen and Piers D Mitchell

INTRODUCTION Crucifixion may be defined as a method of execution by which a person is hanged, usually by their arms, from a cross or similar structure until dead. It has been used in many parts of the world and in many time periods; but is perhaps best known today as a cruel method of social control and punishment in the Roman Empire around 2000 years ago 1 (pp 22-3). In modern times, the medical profession has shown considerable interest in crucifixion. The typical aim of articles by this group has been to determine how crucified individuals actually died; and they often focus on the case of Jesus of Nazareth. Since Stroud's book of 1847, 2 at least 10 different theories have been proposed ( Table 1 ), and many more articles have been published suggesting various combinations of these theories. The 10 examples referenced in Table 1 have been chosen merely as representing the wide difference of opinion in the published literature: it is not an exhaustive lis

Testimony by Thomas Harron

My name is Thomas Harron and this is my testimony. I was saved on the 19 July 1998 in the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle Church Belfast, under the ministry of Pastor James McConnell a man that I have grown to respect and love over these years under his ministry. My testimony did not begin on the night I was saved , when I look back to my youth I realize that if it had not been for GODS Grace through HIS beloved SON The LORD JESUS CHRIST I don't know where or what state I would have been in today . As Christians we have two testimonies. The first GODS Grace before we where saved, in that our previous life did not consume and destroy us before the glorious moment of our salvation through our SAVIOUR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. And secondly HIS keeping GRACE in that he has promised never to leave us nor forsake us, HIS HOLY Word tells us HE is the Alpha and Omega the Beginning and the End, our life in and through GODS SON our SAVIOUR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST is comple
