Do you believe a person can have homosexual attractions and through God's graces repent and remain celibate and also be born again? Or would they only be born again if they somehow became heterosexual?

Homosexual attraction is a 'temptation' just as any other. An old hymn says 'yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin'.

There is no such thing as 'a homosexual'...just people who engage in homosexual behavior.

As,I read this verse ..And I admit I cling o 're thought that Mary is holy..it came to me
.
We are saved by FAIH in our Saviour ..could it not be that Mary..a,human as we are..in need of a Saviour as we are ..might have been the First person who
Received the Holy Spirit
Knew,Jesus within her as Saviour and Lord .
Might not this be the source if all the confusion
Not that Mary was a,perfect hUMAn..OR Immaculate Conception ....But was a saved human by reieving Christ as Saviour ..receiving also the gift of GrAce through that Holy
SPIRIT ..indwelling her.
THIS WOULD MAKE HER THE PERFECT VESSEL to carry our Lord.
ANOTHER MYSTERY that will be put to rest in heaven..along with her being he wife of Joseph.
Saved humans are encouraged to be wives and mothers .
He mire I think and pray on this
.the more her words make sense .
The dogma of immaculate conception cane out Not until the Mud 1800s
I'm sure CaTholic WOUKD be dissuaded ..that's not my point ..But if Mary was indeed sAved by the Spirit and he'd FAITH IN HER Saviour..She was indeed blessed among women . Carrying our Lord
He was her salvation as,He is ours,.
Just because the Immaculate Conception wasn't formally defined (pronounced dogma) until 1854, does not mean that it wasn't believed for centuries prior to that. It was. This is a common mistake most protestants today make as they don't really understand.

THE PROTESTANT REFORMERS ON MARY
Yet again the Immaculate Conception was a doctrine Luther defended to his death (as confirmed by Lutheran scholars like Arthur Piepkorn).

Mary was conceived the way all the rest of us were. There was ONE virgin birth...Jesus.
Kay, you are confusing the Virgin Birth with the Immaculate Conception.
They are two entirely different things.

The Immaculate Conception does NOT mean the Blessed Virgin Mary's parents didn't conceive her in the normal manner. Good gracious!

And apparently you only believe parts of the bible because you said ""MAKE UP LIES ABOUT ...MARY...CALL HER THE BLESSED VIRGIN.." even though it clearly says she's a virgin and blessed.

Mary IS blessed, and she WAS a virgin when she gave birth to Jesus.

As,I have said repeatedly.

Ask James who is mother was wen you see him

Other wise discussing the marriage bed of Joseph..who was told by he Angel of the Lord ...to take her to WIFE.....IS UNSEEMLY...

I learned one thing as a child ..but he more I read and learn..I believe it's possible Joseph and Mary were both obedient Jewish married people .

Another mystery

But on the rest of my post ..if you believe Mary's words ...SHE NEEDED A SAVIOUR...She received the Holy Spirit and acknowledged FAITH IN HER SAVIOUR ..

SO WHO DO YOU BELIEVE...MARY. OR A POPE 1800 ears later about an immaculate conception...here is your challenge..the scripture where Mary recognizes,HER SAVIOUR..it your Church..

Recently, our church got word from the Family Christian Stores here in Gaithersburg, Md. that Ayman al-Zawahiri is the only true and good gospel because He is Lord and Jesus Christ made Himself Ayman al-Zawahiri to clean up the world.

<quoted text>I remember when I first met Pastor Don. i9t was in 1983 just a few months after I was Saved. God was dealing with me to go to his church and I talked to my mom because I thought that God wanted me to preach that night and she gave me some advice. "just go and wait on the Lord' He will tell you what to do. and I wwent and sat in the back and a young woman wanted to be Baptised in the Holy Ghost, and twice people prayed for her and nothing happened and then the Lord moved on me and told me to go up and lay hands on her. and as I walked up, people moved out of my way and made room for me and I spoke to Don and told him that this time God would answer her Prayers.
and He did and she was filled with the Holy Ghost.
I said all of this to say this. to hank.
Christians still lay hands on other Christians(not this word) and they receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.
this Baptism doesn't happen by getting wet nor when sinners get Saved, He(the Holy Ghost) comes later with Power and Glory.
LOL.....

I like you too, Preston.....

And, you know I have to respectfully disagree with you on the laying on of hands.....

Galatians 1:10

10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

Simon even offered money to receive this ability, to NO avail....

Acts 8:17-19

17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

18 When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money

19 and said,“Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”

And, we all know what Peter told him.....

We receive the "gift of the Holy Spirit" (aka "the indwelling of the Holy Spirit")....we DO NOT receive "Baptism of the Holy Spirit."

So, is there like a list of sins God won't forgive, or people God cannot forgive? Curious, as I thought, being God and all, that He was all-loving and all merciful.
I mean, God loves everyone, I thought, but you seem to know otherwise.
GOD CANNOT/WILL NOT FORGIVE UNFORGIVENESS.
Mat 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
NOTE
Mat 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
So, if you don't forgive them, God won't?

Not sure where you're going here, GIF.

I think the deal is if they the sinner are repentant, God forgives them, regardless of what you or I do or think.

Rose,

If a person has been saved (baptized in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ,) they have obtained forgiveness of their sins.

BUT, if they <<<<<deliberate ly>>>>> keep on sinning, there is NO sacrifice for sin.

Hebrews 10:26

26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have *****received the knowledge of the truth,***** no sacrifice for sins is left,

***they received the knowledge of the truth*****

There is no such thing as 'a homosexual'...just people who engage in homosexual behavior.
Are you saying a person cannot be celibate? That's not what Jesus and St. Paul said.

I don't believe people are "born that way". I believe there are many societal and early developmental factors involved, however, I think the jury is still out on whether a person, who has from their childhood had same-sex attraction, can change it.

It is a 'temptation' for a born again heterosexual man to look with lust on another man's wife. He and doesn't act on it, he repents and asks the Lord for forgiveness. The homosexual does the same. Does God judge one differently than the other? Are all men and women who have same-sex attraction headed for hell no matter what? Even if they don't engage in homosexual behavior?

no one on here has ever claimed that mary was not a virgin when the angel came to her.

but the Bible never claims that she remained a virgin, especially when the Bible is clear that Jesus had other brothers and sisters.

SHE WAS A VIRGIN .conceived by the Spirit of God ..

She was a Blessed Virgin ..most surely.
