Homosexuals Are Absolutely Not Born That Way
For all gospel preachers saying it doesn’t matter if gays are born that way (that they didn’t choose their orientation/desire) but they have to abstain anyway, that is a big, big mistake. This is giving up a very important truth – that homosexuality is unnatural (Rom 1:26-27). Gays are not born that way – they choose it just like any other sin.Personally I agree that even if a person were born that way, they must abstain, but many will not accept that argument. Instead they will consent to the argument that if God gives a person a desire, there is always a lawful way to fulfill that desire. And that will lead to brethren accepting gay marriage. It is certain to.Our approach on this heinous sin should be the same as Paul described in Gal 2:5 – “To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.” The Bible teaches both points – homosexuals are not born that way, and they must quit their practice (I Cor 6:9-11).
