Can One Be Homosexual And be Truly Born Again?

It is kind of fancy to say one has a gay friend these days. In the eyes of the intellectual elites, the speaker is probably seen as a forward thinking open minded individual. Truth be told, I am an advocate of human rights and I don’t think anyone should be denied of their rights, especially that of association. I am never comfortable with discussing one’s sexual preferences. I mean nobody wants to know the details of what happens behind closed doors (well, maybe a few would) but if most people shared we would find the details equally gross.

I love to listen and reason but I have come to understand that reason doesn’t work for the things of the spirit. I read of many touching stories of people that felt trapped inside themselves, the ones that contemplated suicide a couple of times. These stories bring tears to my eyes at times, I wonder at the depression and struggle every day presents to such individual but then so are stories of rape victims who become prostitutes. We all have excuses for being who we are. Good thing is the scripture brings hope. No situation is hopeless, so it is rather befuddling when one hears of homosexuals that became born again and are seeking for acceptance within the Christendom.

It is no one’s place to judge another person but some things are clearly stated in the bible. The scripture says when you turn a new leaf, behold old things are passed away and all things have become new, meaning we are not supposed to be the same once we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.

Back to our subject of discourse, I am not going to say one sin outweighs another, I will rather say we all need to acknowledge our errors when we are wrong and ask for forgiveness accordingly. I read on the internet some time ago at different times of gay pastors and I am like ‘Is that even possible’. Can we choose the parts of the bible that we want to believe to rule our lives? Is there such thing as partly saved? Are we going to remain in sin and ask for abundance of grace? Are we so blinded by our human sexual desires think we have no power over it? So, if one constantly feels the urge to have sex with a horse, does that make it right?

God is no author of confusion, the bible is clear on homosexuality
"If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them." Lev20:13

"For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 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. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper." Rom1:26-28.

I am not passing judgment over anyone, I am just thinking aloud and asking that we all do some soul searching.
