Sexual Confusion #7

Thinking clearly, acting gracefully.

Genesis 1:27; 2:24 “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” “For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.”

As a Christian, the answer to the question of origination is found in the Scripture. These verses from Genesis answer the question as to “How we were made.” Therefore, the natural progression and procreation of humanity was specifically designed to reflect the life and nature of God.

So, when a statement is made that some people are born with certain bents, tendencies, or weakness, it is a deception and becomes an accusation as to God’s initial intent. To state that “homosexuals are born that way,” or more relevant to the Christian; “God made them that way” is a false assertion. This is the primary assertion of the homosexual agenda. It ignores, even rejects, the fallen nature of man. It denies mans fearful and self-absorbed view of life.
It is a misleading assumption that human weakness and their developed bents are a result of heritage rather than sin, of DNA rather than choice. The idea that sexual preference is not a result of social imposition and formation from a corrupt immoral environment but a natural human trait is merely a form of blame-shifting and selfishness. Mankind is broken! We need a Savior. Jesus is the only answer.

Now this approach has proven foundational for the ability of the homosexual agenda to convince a majority of Americans that homosexuality is no longer a moral issue involving behavioral choices but rather a civil rights issue involving someone that is simply born “different.” This has resulted in their lobbies (public schools, liberal media and legal formations) successfully elevating so-called “sexual orientation” to the same category as other inherent human characteristics such as race and gender. This one issue alone seems central to the current false and misleading teaching plaguing our churches today. Given the pervasive influence of the homosexual agenda on our culture and now even the church itself, it is absolutely essential that we know and be equipped to respond with the facts. Therefore, our ethics are drawn from reflecting on the Genesis account and Jesus affirmation in Matthew 19:5.
