Today people say that homosexuals and lesbians are born that way. While we do not wish to offend anyone it must be pointed out that when we study the Word of God we find that these lifestyles have a different origin. (See below)

Romans Chapter 1:18-32  “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

Below the Apostle Paul, while under the anointing of the Holy Spirit(in other words he was not speaking his own ideas but God was speaking through him), was addressing the Church of Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11  “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”

The above shows that even people who have practiced a variety of lifestyles, including homosexuality, have come to Christ and have renounced previous practices. God is no respecter of persons. What He does for one He will do for another. Since our focus at this time is on sex, for more on those who once practiced homosexuality but are now living as heterosexuals please visit exodusglobalalliance.org and hear about such wonderful transformations.

Exodus Global Alliance is comprised of folks who once lived as homosexuals and lesbians but have since renounced those lifestyles and are now living heterosexual lifestyles, “Proclaiming that change is possible for the homosexual through the transforming power of Jesus Christ. Equipping Christians and churches to uphold the Biblical view of sexuality but respond with compassion and grace to those affected by homosexuality. Serving people affected by homosexuality through counseling, support groups and other services.”

For anyone burdened by any type of sin(s) please read the scriptures below.

Romans 3:23  “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

Romans 6:23  “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 5:8  “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 10:9-13  “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

If you truly ask Jesus to forgive you and repent(turn away) from your sin(s) He will in fact forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.

Jesus loves you.
