Homosexuality is now accepted in our country as something no one has the choice over. It is supposedly all about “love.” This is simply not the truth.
The Myth of the Gay Gene
Yes, it is a myth. There is no such thing.
The idea of such a gene is, first of all, wishful thinking among gay activists. It is backed up by three studies, none of which are scientifically sound in the least.
The most scientific of the three studied 35 men. (You must have 1500 to have totally reliable statistics. The closer you are to that number, the more correct your answers are likely to be.)
Some of these were gay and had a different brain structure than the others. But wait a minute… of those who were “straight” several died of AIDS. It is very difficult to contract this disease unless you are;
- A drug user (which the men were not),
- A woman having sex with a positive man, or
- A gay man.
This study was done in San Francisco. It is obvious that those “straight” men who died of AIDS and had “normal” brains simply lied about their lifestyle choice, meaning that some of the gay men had different brains and some didn't.
Even if the study were big enough and accurate enough to prove a difference between gay and straight brains, though, it only would have proven that gay men’s brains were different. It did nothing to prove cause and effect.
("Correlation is not Causation," in other words, just because two events happen at the same time doesn't mean one causes the other. For example, did you know that 80% of people who have been in car accidents ate green beans the week before? Does that mean that green beans cause car accidents? No, of course not. 80% of Americans simply eat green beans at least once a week, car accident or not. Did you know babies who are breastfed survive car accidents better than bottle fed babies? Scientific fact! Why? Mommies who breastfeed are more diligent to properly fasten their babies in properly installed car seats. Seems breastfeeding and surviving car accidents have the same cause. Neither causes the other, though.)
A study that came out the same day as the one I am discussing proved that psychotherapy changes the structure of the human brain. In other words JUST TALKING changed the brain!
IF gay brains are different (which is iffy at best) it is likely because they choose a gay lifestyle. It is the effect not the cause.
"I was born that way... so it's OK" (Josef Fritzi, "gays," and us)
Let’s just suppose that there was a gay gene, though, just for arguments sake. What does that mean?
Where does alcoholism come from? It is commonly believed that the tendency to alcoholism is inherited. Does this excuse an alcoholic? Make it OK for him to drink? No. Of course not. He is still responsible for his own behavior.
What about someone who is sexually attracted to children? Or violence such as rape? Should society allow them to live as they “were born to?”
The fact is that we are ALL genetically programmed to sin. We like sin. It feels natural to us all. No one is dragged into sin. Some of us have a genetic/ environmental/ cultural tendency to lie, some to steal, some to cheat, some to be self-righteous, some to be gay. It is normal and natural for us. This is called “Adam’s nature.” Does this mean we all are going to hell?
"All have sinned and come short of the glory of God." -Romans 3:23
"The wages of sin are death…
…the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord (Boss)." -Romans 6:23
- Heaven is a gift to each and everyone of us. A special gift from God.
What good would it do you if I put a million dollars into a box, wrapped it up and set it on your doorstep? Not any good at all.
For it to profit you, for you to use the gift, you must pick the box up and open it. You must receive it.
It is the same for salvation. You must accept Christ as you Boss in order to receive the gift of Heaven. The gift is there, waiting for you, but you must receive it.
- The Bible says:
- Don’t let anything be more important than God.
- Do not steal.
- Do not envy.
- Do not murder.
- Do not engage in drug use or witchcraft.
- All liars go to hell.
- Do not be a hypocrite.
- Do not have sex with people you are not married to.
- “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman.” Leviticus 18:22, 20:13
- “Because of this idolatry, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations (man fits with woman like a puzzle) for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.” Romans 1:26-27 (NIV)
- “Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders … will inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10 (NIV)
The Purpose of Sex
Sex was designed to produce children and draw a married couple closer together. That it is fun is the wonderful side effect.
Marriage was designed to produce godly children and to reflect the relationship between God and the church. That it provides companionship and fulfillment is the reward.
Homosexuality is sterile. It cannot produce children (anyone who understands genetics knows this proves it is not genetic in and of itself), much less godly children.
Homosexuality does not reflect God’s relationship with the church. God is the husband and the church is the wife. The church does not just need another church, nor will another God do for God. In order to reflect God’s purpose, marriage MUST have one biological male (XY chromosome) and one biological female (XX chromosome). Anything else is a mockery.
Now, gays, like all sinners, can repent. They can turn around from their sin. Due to damage done by this sinful world, they might not be able to become “straight” (some ex-gays can, some can’t), but they can stop living a sinful lifestyle.
We all need God’s help to live a righteous life. None of us is strong enough by ourselves. But God is there for EVERYONE!
God loves each one of us and wants each of us to be with Him in heaven. Sin can not exist in the presence of God and sinners can not go to heaven.
But Jesus’ blood washes our sin away…
If we will let Him.
