I've said it before and I'll say it again, even though many sincere people will hate me for it.. and be wrong.

Really don't mean to be offensive, but with all due respect ..you Sir or Miss were born a sinner just like me, and you were not born gay no matter how many like-able people (or any others) tell you that you were. It's a choice, and there's no scientific proof that you were. In fact, I have an ex-gay (totally forgiven) relative that I actually had the privilege of leading in a prayer of repentance to faith in Christ ..and who has lived free from all homosexual sins for decades now, who has been happily married to a wonderful person of the opposite sex even.... they full-on rejoice together with their beautiful child that they together were blessed with.. and this person would attest to all that I am saying here. 

Also, for straight folk.. choosing to have sex outside of marriage in fornication or adultery ..those are also lame choices that God also calls wrong and sinful. Sure, read the whole Book (Bible). I didn't come up with all this on my own. This is what God clearly says in His Word, so if you have a beef with that please don't get all mad at me or call me "homophobic" (cuz I ain't a hater or afraid). I could just as easily say to the name-caller: Don't be Bibleophobic, Godophobic or 

Christianophobic. Simply go take it up with Him one on One if you have a problem about it. And if you're confused on this stuff, just know that the inerrant Bible and it's perfect Author.. the holy God who deeply and selflessly loves you.. the One who, YES, wrote the Bible without any errors via flawed men ..is not confused at all. He has never been, and never will be.  

I also want to say, even though I personally used to drink like a wild coy fish just for the effect instead of for the taste that.. alcoholism has never been a biological disease though many people will tell you it is a disease. It's simply an uber-lame choice just like the choice or choices involved with abusing drugs or people. Please don't abuse em. Are there people out there who have a propensity, an inner predilection or inclination to favor, or a tendency towards.. or a habitual proclivity for these sins that I've mentioned above? I would say, Sure there are. We know this to be true, but we all make our choices just the same and we will be held accountable for each one. People wouldn't have such if Adam and Eve (two real individuals - the first people God made) didn't make their bad choices and fall in the Garden and then try to hide. People didn't have such before that time, therefore it's not God's fault if people do today. Many blame God, but He's never sinned or had any darkness in Him. God is light and He's not even shadowy any day of the week. He lives outside of time and doesn't change. 

We've been clearly warned for our own protection's sake. Also, Christians are not called to go accuse sinners of their sins, or to go browbeat them, or to ever talk down to them, or to try and reform sinners (which just doesn't work). They might just change idols to worship as some do. We aren't called of God to comfort, to enable, or to even encourage them in their sinning i.e., "There, there. You really are a good person inside and everything really will be okay." We don't know that. Can we encourage them to ditch their sin-habits via biblcial repentance and faith in the Lord. Absolutely, with humble gentleness, with the holy fear of God inside, with discernment and respect for them as a human made in God's image having great value. Christians are called to walk in the spirit, to love all people, and to uncompromisingly minister the Gospel of grace to them.. for decisions. Duh! Jesus exampled this and He is the only one who can save us sinners.

So, no matter what your pet sins are, there is a viable Solution and He has a name, Jesus Christ (the Bible Jesus). He hung on the Cross for you and died. He also came out of that borrowed tomb as He said. Turn from the wrong-doin's today and put your fully trust in Him alone. 

I was asked about all this, so here's the clear response (see verses in their context below [there's more when you have time]). This is God's stance and therefore I chose that it'd be mine as well. 

"Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin." (Leviticus 18:22 nlt)

"If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense." (Leviticus 20:13 nlt)

“Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people-none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11 nlt)

“Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine..” (1 Timothy 1:8-10)

“And don't forget Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion. Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God's judgment.” (Jude 7 niv)
