To what extent is homosexuality innate? (the testimony of the Bible)

After I published the article Is homosexuality innate? (Brain study results) has started a controversy among readers. Some insist that homosexuality is innate and some people are born with a predisposition to become homosexual. Other readers say that it is not.

The Bible teaches us that all men were born sinners and inclined to sin. When King David was repenting for the sin committed with Bathsheba, he said:

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me. (Psalm 51:5)(NASB)

By this he emphasized the truth that we all are born sinners with predisposition to sin and homosexuality is not an exception. It seems that some people are born with greater predisposition to become alcoholic, thieves, bandits, immoral, etc. But there is no excuse for anyone to live such a life just because he was born with such a predisposition.

God calls all people to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to repent to be delivered by the power of sin in their lives. And homosexuals are not an exception, God worked miraculously and brought great transformation in the lives of many gays and about those from Corinth, Paul wrote:

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)(NASB)

The biggest problem is that with the help of such “research” as the one made by Simon LeVay, gays want to eliminate this practice from the category of sins and they present it as a virtue and normality.

Thieves, drunkards, drug addicted persons and prostitutes know that what they are doing is wrong and they do not try to convince us that it is ”normal” what they are doing or join together on principle of sin as to promote their practices and to impose them on society.
