Homosexuality is a Choice

Posted on February 12, 2012


When it comes to homosexuality, someone recently said this about one of my articles…

“Your liberal use of the word “choice” is disgusting.”

I do not know about you, but I am pretty sure our God of love has made it clear that homosexuality is a sin.  This does not mean we should run from those who have embraced this lifestyle… we need to do what Jesus would do and seek to save those who are lost in this lifestyle.

The Word of God says this about homosexuality…

Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor abusers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Cor. 6:9, 10)

Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves. For they changed the truth of God into a lie, and they worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this cause, God gave them up to dishonorable affections. For even their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust toward one another; males with males working out shamefulness, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error. (Romans 1:24-27)

God so loved the world that He sent His Son to seek and to save the lost from themselves.

The Bible defines homosexuality as a “choice” that causes a person to be lost and unable to enter into eternal life with God (see above).  Look at the list in 1 Cor. 6… fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, abusers, thieves, covetous, drunkards, and homosexuals.  These are all sins that people choose to activate in their lives.  God does not force us to sin… in love He sent Jesus to die our forever death on the cross so to give us the power we need – here and now – to have victory over all sin.

Homosexuality is not natural.  Through the wonderful power of Jesus, a person can surrender his or her lust of the flesh to the Creator.  Just like any sinful addiction, being free of homosexual desires can be accomplished immediately or over the course of years.  The main thing is that we surrender all to Jesus.  Like it or not, we must choose to walk the straight and narrow no matter how difficult it may be.
