For this reason God gave them [the ancient heathen] over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error (1:26-27, NASB).

1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous[b] will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,[c] 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. 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.

Christians shouldn't be hateful about it. Christians need to be willing to have an open conversation so that we can come to the truth.

Mitch, Do you believe that 15 and 16 year old kids who are gay that God gave them over to degrading passions?

I think they are born that way. I have never met a gay person that wanted to be gay. They didnt choose to be gay.

No, people are not born gay. All of us are sinners, and we choose to sin. God doesn't make us gay any more than He makes us gamble, overeat, cuss, use drugs, lust, and the list goes on and on and on. Homosexuality is a choice and a sin which must be overcome like all the sins listed above. The fact of what you just said, that you never met a gay person who wants to be gay, should be the only indicator one needs to know it isn't right. Do you think God would make someone that way just so they could be unhappy their entire lives? God wants only good things for all.

No genetic "condition" is ever condemned in the bible. For example baldness is not evil. Having red hair or being left handed is not evil. To understand "God gave them over to degrading passions" you have to look at earlier verses. You see they knew God but they thought they knew better than God. Sounds familiar. God gave them up to their wisdom, idol worship and immoral lusts. To me (what I think) matters less than (what I know) the bible teaches. Either the bible is God's word or its not. I am not saying once a person gets wrapped up in any sin it's easy to change. I have my own sin that I struggle with. I'm no better than anyone else. I get just because some guy thumps a scripture that all sin is not healed. It's a struggle but we first need to acknowledge what sin is.

Romans 1:21For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. 24Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. 26For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Yes they will. At least I hope they are. It would be boring without them.

No they won't. Homosexuality is a sin. Heaven will be a sinless place. the bible states who will and who will not be there. Your salvation completely depends on if you have repented of your sins and accepted Christ as your Savior. A person who has accepted Him will not continue in what they know as sin, no mater what the sin. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin and if you are continuing in the lifestyle, but you aren't being brought under conviction, you need to check to see if you have the presence of the Holy Spirit.

It's not ever going to happen! Hell not Heaven is the destination for ALL unrepentant sinners.

You can't say that it isn't genetic cause there isn't conclusive proof either way. However, there is more proof of it being genetic than anything else. Stop being naive.

Unrepentant sinners will not gain entrance to heaven, its not my opinion but God's stated fact.

You can try the argument "I was born this way and thus would not/could not repent" on the day of Judgement if you feel so inclined......

You folks will come up with anything to justify behaviors, crimes, etc.....

How about accepting some responsibilities for your choices and cease trying to blame it on someone or something.

God will not nor should the courts be entertaining any of this garbage about lack of self control!

Not sure how you can say we were born sinners. Sin requires a deity and you have presented bumpkis to support that one exists, much less that you know what that deity thinks.
Not sure how you can say people are not born gay. Could you show some group of guys who were 100% not-gay, lets say until they were in their 30's, who then suddenly 'decided' that vagina just wasn't fulfilling their needs and 'decided' they were attracted to penis.
I think what you will find is that although gay people may not have realized they are attracted to the same sex until the same time other people discover they are attracted to the opposite sex, they were nonetheless wired that way from birth; just like you were wired to like women.
jUST BE SURE THAT PEINS IS A CUT PENIS.

I find it interesting that - according to your theological system of belief- the only unforgiven sins are apostasy and blasphemy, and everything else is equal in the eyes of god. Yet so many of your like hold up signs denouncing gays while eating cheeseburgers.

I neither support or condemn the gay lifestyle. Just reading lunatic comments from right wing religious nuts. It wasn't that many years ago that you people, primarily Southern Fried Baptist, could not deal with the Harry Potter books. Science has already confirmed that your religious beliefs are entirely in the arena of fantasy. Science never made it its mission to support or condemn religious beliefs or concepts. You people are all nuts.

Well if you believe that way, then Christians must be doing something wrong to have had so many of their children grow up to be gay.
