You'll need to hang in there with me on this one.
God loves gays and lesbians. Am I saying that God is ok with a homosexual lifestyle? No, quite the contrary. God, through the Bible, clearly states that homosexual behavior is wrong. The Bible also lists quite a few other wrong behaviors those of us non-gay folks are plenty guilty of indulging in.
If homosexual behavior is wrong, then it must be a choice and not just a way someone is born, right? I mean, why would God create someone with a sexual orientation that is contrary to his divine purpose? I don't know the answer to that.
I don't know if sexual orientation is a genetic makeup, a result of psychological damage as a child, or just an choice made for selfish reasons. I'm not gay so I can't relate. If I had to guess, I would guess all three are true.
So lets assume that sexual orientation is sometimes or even often a result of genetic makeup. That does not change the fact that God says very clearly in the Bible that this behavior is wrong. So why would God create a person genetically predisposed to a lifestyle that he opposes? Where's the love in that?
The truth is that we are all predisposed to living a lifestyle that God opposes. We are born wired for greed, jealousy, addictions, fits of anger, etc... Why did God make us this way if he loves us? Let's turn the question around. If God created us with the inability to do anything he opposes, would that be love?
What does this mean to you if you're gay? God loves you. If you want to experience God's love, a love you can't even imagine, seek him. What if you're gay and you say you already know God? I didn't write the book brothers and sisters. Seek him.
What does this mean to you if you're not gay? God loves you even though you too are incapable of living a life on your own that God approves. If you want to experience God's love, a love you can't even imagine, seek him.
