Our oldest is a christian, me & him disagree on Homosexuality..in one aspect anyway...in how they handle it... He believes they are born this way... but he feels it is wrong behavior so therefor these men should hold their lusts and struggle to be sexless.. I do not agree with this... if it is not hurting anyone..they are consenting adults... I feel only a cruel God would expect them to live like that, if they were born this way...
That'd be like us trying to lay down our Romantic passions towards the opposite sex, we are wired that way....some things are just too powerful !! ...Might as well hang that one up...it's going to have it's expression in us.
....A child molester is different (he is wired to lust after young children for some reason) some things need restrained.. of course..
As far as sin, if we want to go there.... we all sin... what of gluttony...boy is some of us guilty of that one!
I do not understand many things...why God allows children to be born "Intersexed" (Physically neither male nor female OR both & Doctor plays God & corrects) Intersex - Wikipedia
, WHY Children are born with down syndrome (seems so unfair)...
I know nothing about what some claim about DNA strands, etc. I lean towards alot of grace towards these people. (unless they are willing spreading Aids with careless behavior... but I would feel that way with anyone, drug abuser, heterosexuals, I would see them all in the same light.
Also I QUESTION the original words & translations in the Sodom & Gomorrah story pointing exclusively to "Homosexuality", it definitely was other sins also....which rarely get pointed out for some reason.....
In Ezekiel 16:49-50, it says ....."Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit."
It was also .... 1) Pride
& 4) Not caring for the Poor
The New Testament also speaks of "the sins" of Sodom and Gomarrah in Matthew 10:12-15; Mark 6:10-11 & Luke 10:10-12.
