The Christian group behind the Instagram account TrueLove.Is.Sg faced a huge wave of and backlash from the local LGBTQ community after it touted itself as trying to “ Christians with unwanted same-sex attraction”.

The group is linked to the 3:16 church led by Pastor Ian Toh.

Last week, TrueLove.Is.Sg posted videos where Pastor Toh sat with four Christians who “struggled with same-sex attraction” or “SSA”.

The Instagram account places same-sex attraction, depression and suicidal thoughts in the same vein, and says, “Don’t just come out, come home”.

The account also captions their post with things such as,” “I was introduced to a church which believed that homosexuality is no longer a sin. But I knew it was a lie and I wanted to stay in that lie”, and ““I no longer identify myself as gay…The truth me free.”

Members of the LGBTQ+ community have since rallied on the social platform to call out what they see as a form of “conversion therapy,” a widely discredited pseudoscience devoted to changing sexual orientation.

Many even reported the account to Instagram for inappropriate content.

Yesterday, TrueLove.Is.Sg shared the photo of their banner and wrote, “There have been deliberate efforts to spread online falsehoods that TrueLove.is practices so-called “conversion therapy”. Many have shared this post of a photoshopped image that is false. Swipe for original artwork printed.

TrueLove.Is does not practice “conversion therapy” nor does it condone “electroshock therapy”. The ministry provides Christian stories, resources and a safe community to help Christians with unwanted same-sex attraction.
