Are gay people really born that way? After several encounters with friends who claimed that God made them gay, one particular conversation sent author Sandra Cloud on a journey of biblical discovery. What God shared with her was an unexpected, uncommon response that has rarely been explored in Christianity today, but this word from God begins the dialogue that needs to take place as believers face the subject of homosexuality. The Forbidden Fruit is Cloud's explanation of the answers that God brought to her spirit as she searched for His wisdom. Her mesmerizing work takes you to the origins of homosexuality that are found in the Book of Genesis, beginning in the Garden of Eden and the fall of man, when homosexuality first entered the world through Satan. With scriptural support and a unique perspective of biblical events, Cloud explores what really happened when Satan tempted Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In this insightful book, you'll discover what the "forbidden fruit" in the garden really was, and this fact will transform the way you view homosexuality and the deceptive nature of Satan. As a work entirely backed up by Scripture, The Forbidden Fruit will sharpen your awareness of the spiritual darkness behind homosexuality. If you or someone in your life is struggling with homosexuality or desires to understand more about the origins of this lifestyle, The Forbidden Fruit will open your mind to the truth hidden within God's Word and His plan for ultimate restoration. Sandra Cloud was introduced to God at the age of five and has been in a relationship with Him ever since. She has been married to her wonderful husband for almost twenty-nine years, and together they have four adult children and one adorable grandchild. Twelve years ago, her family suffered a tragic loss with the murder of her oldest son, which caused her to turn away from the life she had known. Those eleven years spent in solitude as she walked alone with God birthed the inspiration for The Forbidden Fruit.
