I am a homosexual Christian and the attitude of Christians who can not accept me as a gay affects me. Why they can not understand that I was born so and that this thing does not come from me and it can not be changed?
You can not be a Christian and a homosexual
Anyone who has read the Scriptures knows well that homosexuality is a categorically condemned sin and God stated this truth many times both in the Old and New Testament. As light and darkness are incompatible, as righteousness and sin can not be put together, so you can not be a Christian and a gay. If you choose to be a Christian, you leave sin and therefore you will leave the homosexual practices that are against the nature, as the Apostle Paul wrote in the Epistle of Romans when he writes about people who are in bondage of sin:
<sup class=”xref” value=”‘(A)’>Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. (Romans 1:22-27)(NASB)
So, homosexuality is the result of people choosing to depart from God.
About inheritance through heredity
The Bible says that all people have inherited sin through heredity, but this is not an excuse for anyone to remain in sin and perish from the Face of God. As you consider that you were born with the predisposition to homosexuality, just the same others were born with predisposition to theft, drunkenness, drugs, etc. Then do they also need to make an excuse out of this and say they must be accepted as they are and do not want to change through the Gospel? Do not excuse, do not tolerate sin in your life. Do not be deceived by those who make homosexual propaganda or maybe have seduced and molested you when you were a child and so they got caught you into the clutches of this degrading passion.
You can be freed from homosexuality
Do not believe the lies of those who say that you can not be freed from homosexuality. The city of Corinth was famous in antiquity for debauchery and homosexuality has spread there in the worst forms destroying human lives. But, when the Apostle Paul came and preached the Gospel, many homosexuals have been cleaned and released, becoming holy men. After his departure from Corinth, the Apostle wrote the Christians from Corinth:
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 word “effeminate” meant ”soft” and it referred to effeminate men who prostituted themselves by offering sexual services to homosexual men for money. But, when they believed the Gospel both of them were washed, were sanctified and were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and if you come to Him in faith and repentance of heart, you will receive the same forgiveness, cleansing and sanctification.
Positive Alternative to Homosexuality (PATH) organization has published evidence of over 3,000 cases of homosexuals who have been freed of this bondage.
