Conversion therapy (also called reparative therapy) describes various methods to ‘cure’ people of homosexuality as used by Christian and non-Christian psychiatrists and health workers. In recent years, there has been strong opposition to any form of ‘converting’ homosexuals into heterosexuals. Any techniques are considered psychologically and emotionally harmful, and various governments have legislated against any efforts to help these people. Thus, Christian counselling that seeks to help those wanting to escape this ungodly lifestyle are guilty of breaking these human laws. This shows how far society has drifted away from God's standards when it is illegial to help people return to the way He established for sexual union of one man and one woman (Gen 2:24; Mt 19:6; 1 Cor 7:2).
