So, why do you think God keeps creating homosexuals, Suzanne?Someone wants to know where the word homosexual is in the Scriptures, for it does not use the word homosexual, but if you read these verses, it explains that this is what it is talking about. Most of the forum do not like Scriptures, but this is our Authority and the only Authority that my family and friends go by. If you have a Bible, this is found in the New Testament in the Book of Romans Chapter 1 verses 24-28 and I quote: "Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves; Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is Blessed forever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections; for even their women did change 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 one toward another; men with men working that which is umseemly, and receiving in themsselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient."
Some of the most ardent anti-homosexual people (Kimare) believes that homosexuality is a physical characteristic that is related to biology. It's not a choice.
I can tell you from personal experience that I did everything in my power to change my orientation. I did this because I knew about how people hated gays. I knew that my parents would likely disown me. I knew that my friends would likely drop me. I knew it would interfere with my schooling. I knew that I would be subject to ridicule and violence.
So, that's why I wanted to "change". It wasn't because I hated myself or who I was attracted to.
I finally had a very long and good discussion with God about the matter. And He left me with NO DOUBT that He made me gay; that He did not make a mistake.
I don't know why He made me gay. I still don't know. I have some ideas about why He makes gay people. But I can't substantiate them.
I just live by my faith in God and His words directly to me.
I believe that God speaks to people. Do you?
And I believe that if God wanted me to be straight, He would have answered my years of BEGGING to be changed by creating a path that would have made me heterosexual.
See, I don't have to convince you of anything. I KNOW what my experience with God has been. NOTHING you say; no words from scripture, no words from your pastor or church--NOTHING--can change my relationship with God.
