Repentant vs. abandoned

We’re all hypocrites who fight ongoing battles with sin. Many Christians struggle with homosexuality and desire to be clean of it. On the flip side, many homosexuals claim to be Christians but say that God made them the way they are. Therefore, they can continue practicing their lifestyle.

There is a major difference between these two types of homosexuals. The former is a sick but repentant patient in need of God the physician (join the club– this is the condition of all Christians). The latter is abandoned to homosexuality and pretends that what the Bible calls a grievous sin is “natural.” This is putting one’s own system of righteousness in place of God’s righteousness as revealed in Scripture. It dismisses the clear Biblical teaching that God’s path — and thus the best path– is that the only acceptable sex is inside a man/woman marriage.

It doesn’t matter whether you are born with homosexual urges or they came from environmental factors, because God calls us away to better things. We are tempted to do many things, perhaps things that tempt us much more than others, but that doesn’t mean that we have to actually do them. And it doesn’t mean that we should pretend that it’s really all right. Also, there is no point in using the actions of some anti-homosexual buffoon as an excuse. Your argument isn’t ultimately with people, it’s with God.

Homosexuality is only one of many sins and isn’t by a long shot the most widespread sin in the culture. However, it is a sin that many people today have convinced themselves is not really sin. And not only that, it is shamefully aided by a support network in many churches “who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death… approve of those who practice them” (Rom 1:32).
