Le Vay, the researcher and gay activist mentioned previously, made an interesting observation about the emphasis on the biology of homosexuality. God’s Word still makes no provision for any type of sexual activity except that found within heterosexual marriage between one man and one woman.
Research has shown that men and women living homosexually are at substantially higher risk for some forms of emotional problems, including suicidality, major depression and anxiety disorder, conduct disorder and nicotine dependence.
There are several areas where the average homosexual differs from the average, normal, "everyday” heterosexual.
Will we accept the so-called norms created by our society or seek God and His Word to guide us in our lives? But when we trust that God knows what’s best for our lives—and follow His commands—we can receive His blessings and live an abundant life . Maybe the biggest possible reason is this: If the world was convinced that some people are indeed born gay, then some would feel there is a need to protect homosexuals by the government as a designated minority class status, such as African- or Native-Americans. Laumann, and Gina Kolata, (Little, Brown and Company, Boston: 1994), p. Our actions--good and bad--have consequences that impact us, our society and every single living person that comes after us until eternity.
Slowly but surely, it seems the government is embracing this view and granting special rights to the homosexual community for what is a behaviorally based identity rather than a true genetic one. The truth matters because it means freedom for all who believe it and abide by it.
” the conclusive answer is there is no support in the scientific research for the conclusion that homosexuality is biologically determined.
In recent years, several mainline denominations have abandoned traditional interpretations of Scripture and have embraced the "Gay-Christian" movement.
However, this study actually provides support for environmental factors versus genetics!
If homosexuality were in the genetic code, then both of the twins would have been homosexual 100 percent of the time, yet this was not the case. D., “A War of Words,” Boundless, September 30, 1998.
Yet, if you think about it, this reasoning is unintelligent. Devastation occurs when the lines between right and wrong are blurred, erased or reversed. Pollak, “Male Homosexuality, Western Sexuality: Practice and Precept in Past and Present Times”, ed.
For instance, 10 to 15 percent of Americans suffer from alcoholism, but we don’t accept this behavior as normal or healthy. In 1993, a respected research journal, Science, published a study by Dean Hamer that ignited an explosive “born gay” myth. Today, culture is moving further and further away from biblical teachings about sexuality and gender.
In our brokenness of human nature, we have an undeniable inner craving to be whole.
