Out Of The Woodwork
Humans are unique in a way that we have the power to make choices. We choose to build or destroy our character. It's the choice that a person makes that defines his noble or deviant behavior.
I once owned a queer dog or rather an AC/DC dog that was un-trainable because he would try to mount and hump just about anything. I had to get rid of him since nobody was safe around him. My pet was unable to control his behavior.
Many of us choose to live just that way. Being, what we are and unable to control our desires.
I have spent years around folks who would be considered "oddities" but are not gay. Can read about them at : www.xyxo.org/isgi/index.html .
Known as the Turner's Syndrome, an error in cell division results in cells with different genetic codes (XO), this causes people to be born with oddities (intersexed).
What caught my attention while visiting this website was an article titled "Under This Rock" and the claim this person made saying, "My Rock is Jesus". Noticed a stark comparison between these folks and the gay community.
These are the people with ambiguous genitals, born that way from their mother's womb, but making a choice to control their behavior and desires. Even though many have confusing drives because of the balance between being a male or a female, yet most know deep inside if they are one or the other.
You would be amazed to know, as at how many XXY males and YYX females are unaware of their predicament.
But even in these cases it does not mean that XXY males or YYX females are gay. It's all a behavior choice.
God has a design and purpose for His oddities, who had no control whatsoever over their physical self, when they came into this world from their mother's womb. But once in this world, can control their choices and make a decision to follow God (Acts 8:27-38) or follow their desires.
God has a purpose for His creation and Jesus made this very clear while addressing His disciples: Matthew 19:12"For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it."
Paul was a Eunuch by 'choice', joined entirely to the Lord by 'choice' and remained unmarried by 'choice'. Although to be part of the Jewish senate one had to have a wife, but it seems obvious that Paul's wife dumped him when he chose to follow Jesus.
Can not apply this to gay people, their choice is rebellion. God never designed anyone to be a rim shooter of sexual behavior with the same sex. Does not mean that people will not have confusing drives, just a matter of who or what governs their behavior. This is a choice animals do not have, can go to the zoo and see queer monkeys. However, monkeys were never given a choice and the sense of right or wrong, but God has bestowed this gift to man.
That's the difference between a man and an animal.
People, who make a choice ignoring the sense of right or wrong, are lust driven rather than God governed.
Turner's Syndrome = When a person has a Y chromosome in some cells and not others, the resulting condition is called xy-Turners, Mixed Gonadal Dysgenesis, mosaic XY/XO, or simply XY/XO.
