Girls who have boy qualities are called Tomboys and grow up to be soldiers, doctors, and lawyers etc. Boys who have girl qualities are called gay and grow up to be dancers, hairdressers, artists etc. Society creates this role for a man and then they punish him, for taking on this role.
The reason that we cannot stand the fact that someone is gay is because their sexual desires are unnatural. If all gay men were celibate, then no one would ever have any trouble with them having feminine characteristics.
We must also recognize that sexual desires between two people of the opposite sex can also be unnatural (rape, incest, and other sexual abuses). Not only that, but men and women that have a sexual relationship (not only physically but mentally) outside of marriage is also considered a sin (adultery). But mankind decided that because it is natural for men and women to have sexual desires for each other, that when these desires get out of control, it is not as bad as when two people of the same sex have sexual desires for each other. The Bible agrees that God did not create two people of the same sex to marry, because part of the point of marriage is to multiply and fill the earth and to keep sexual desires from getting out of control. If two people of the same sex come together and form close friendships, they donít have to be involved in sexual relationships or have children, to be successful. The way that God created the womanís body and the manís body shows that woman and man are meant to go together and not those of the same sex.
Besides society creating men who donít fit in, God has also allowed it to happen physically. Science has shown that men have x and y chromosomes whereas women have x and x chromosomes. Every once in awhile, someone will be born with an extra x chromosome. So their combination can be, x and x and y, causing some confusion as to which two chromosomes will determine the sex of the child, and in some cases, some children of these children will be born with both sexes. Their sexual desires arenít sure which way to go.
So either nature or society has created something we call unnatural.
Matthew 19:12 for there are eunuchs who were born thus from their motherís womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heavenís sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it.
The last would be men who chose the life of celibacy out of their Love for God.
If society creates a gay man, then God can come into his life and undo all the damage society has caused and heal the wounds. You will find many testimonies of gay men who have changed their lifestyle and married woman and even some have had children.
But what about those that from their chromosome nature, are gay. Let's look at another physical disposition of some people. Consider those who are born with an alcoholic disposition. Unlike most people, alcohol is like a poison in their bodies and once they get started it is very hard for them to quit. But like all physical conditions that we may be born with, it is possible to overcome. What God wanted us to experience, was that no matter what has a hold on someone, with His help, it can be overcome. So the choice becomes; ď Do you want the life God planned for you or are you content to live out this life the way you want and then be done with life after that?Ē I canít tell you why God gives us burdens that seem impossible to bear, but I know that people can tolerate different levels of burdens and come out fine. God knows what each person can bear.
So before we pick up stones and pass judgement on the lifestyles of the gay community, let us look at our own sins. In Godís eyes all sin against mankind is equal. If we can bring the Love and Wisdom of God into the life of anyone, then our Lord Jesus Christ can heal all things. Jesus never forced Himself on anyone, He just wanted all of Godís children to come to Him. If we deny people into our churches, homes and schools, because of their sins, then we better go all lock ourselves up in closets and the first person that does not sin, can come out.
I am not saying that we should allow sins in our churches, schools and homes. We are always to make a stand against sins. We must be perfectly clear on this point. Our sins will always remain under the law. What I am saying, is that we need to find a way to reach all people and bring them to the Love of God and that their sins against mankind are no worse than ours.
19Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
God's Righteousness Through Faith
21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
Adultery in the Heart
27 "You have heard that it was said to those of old, "You shall not commit adultery.' 28But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
4they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?" 6This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.
7So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first." 8And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, "Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?"
11She said, "No one, Lord."
And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more." 12Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."
