Conventional wisdom and testimony say, NO!
THE WORD OF GOD ALSO SAYS, “NO!”
I’ve tried to explain my thoughts in this regard by first taking thenormal front ended route logically building stone upon stone, brick uponbrick and step upon step until, through a series of reasoning supportingwhy I think we do, the reader arrives at a reasonable logical conclusion.However, I think I send too much energy in supporting my position and notenough time explaining the thinking of God. I hope this time, I will doa better job in going from the position of God to man's thinking..
Do we choose to be gay or straight?
That depends on whether you are talking about a verb or a noun! Mostof the arguments I hear, the opponents are not defining which they aretalking about!
First, I wish to avoid the pitfalls abundantly evident in the discussionsand arguments to date. I will define my terms. (See GLOSSARYof CORRECTED TERMS)
Speaking in terms of Gay or Gai being noun, God revealed that He didnot create heterosexuals, bisexuals and homosexual but one man each withhis own individual characteristics, capable of loving and being loved!As such, there are no heterosexuals nor homosexuals. That is a particularcondition engaged in at a particular point in time. Everybody is bisexualof gai with his or her own unique, individual personality and characteristics.
As far as Gai or Gay being a verb, my answer was a resounding, “I hopeso! I sure as hell hope no one is forced!”
This is not to diminish the fact that scientist, not associated withthe fanatical religious fundamentalists say we are born the way we are.For those interested more in the thinking of God verses the hatred of man,I might also add that God says so Himself.
God said in affect, he didn’t create heterosexual nor homosexual butone bisexual man with his own unique personality and characteristics capableof loving and being loved. That’s as much to say, you were born the wayyou are, attracted to a member of either gender but you can change yourbehavior any time you want or be changed. To change a person against hiswill, by intense indoctrination or with only tacit approval is the samething as rape which is against the Laws of God.
A person can change or alter his or her behavior, but he or she willnever be able to change his or her nature. It is societies job and responsibilityto become educated and be supportive of all of God’s children, e.g. yourspiritual brothers and sisters!
THAT IS ALSO CHRIST'S COMMANDMENT, e.g. THE SECOND GREAT COMMANDMENTOF GOD!
36 Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thyheart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour (sic)as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Read Verse 40 again. “On these two commandments hang all the law andthe prophets,” which is to say that ALL THE LAWS and ALL THE PROPHETSsince the beginning of time were given to man for the expressed purposeof teaching and getting man to adhere to these two commandments only! Allother verbiage is simply commentary, some of which are the commandmentsof men he teaches for doctrines of God!
Without obeying the second commandment of God, you are violatingthe first Great Commandments, i.e. the individual does not love Godbut shows his disdain for God.
1 John 4:20
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth (sic) his brother, heis a liar: for he that loveth (sic) not his brother whom he hath seen,how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
You show your true love of God when you show love for all of God's creation!
