There are some that think it is not possible to get into heaven without being baptized but I'd like to present to the example of the thief that accepted Christ as he was dying on the cross and Christ stated to the man that he would be with Him that very day in paradise. Now I don't think the man had time to come down off the cross and get baptized.
Now I think that we must be baptized but don't say that it is impossible for one to get into heaven without baptism. With God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
If no one gets into Heaven because they were not baptized, no one got into Heaven until the time of John the Baptist...some 6000 years after Creation!!!!!

hey Tony, thankyou for sharing that teaching on Romans 1. i didn't see anything that implied people were born gay and that was my original question, and no, married 30 years never would do that.

maybe the prayer deliverence that gif was talkng about was that you were not made that way? Love you, blessings.

There are those that say that God does not make mistakes and I know that he doesn't. But I have a question. Are hermaphrodites a mistake that God made? Also in Genesis where it states that it grieved God that He had made man on the earth. Is that implying that God consider that a mistake that He had made man? Questions that make you go Hmmmmm.

That verse is found in Genesis 6:6 where it states that it REPENTED the Lord that He had made man. If God knows what will happen before it happens,why would He do something that He would repent of and regret?

There are many mysteries that we do not understand at this time and I think there is more to this being gay than we can fully comprehend right now.

There are those that say that God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Well if God didn't make Steve then how the heck did Steve get here because there are a lot of Steves in the world.

My physolophy is Gpd made Adam and Eve and and then He told them to make Steve,LOL,LOL.

I know there are many things we don't comprehend fully but from my own experience we as christians are made new in Jesus, so He found a way for us to conform to Him, lol,...and that would be His design for us, done by His power, we consent?

So if it's biological ( and there is strong scientific evidence that it is) would it still in your view be a "sin"? And just what did David from scripture mean when he stated that Jonathan's (Saul son ) love to him was better than the love of women? Better than the love of women? Makes you go hmmm,lol.

I disagree with my mentor of some things. There is diagreement on many things between differing denominations. There are even some Pentecostal groups that think women should not wear pants while yet another Pentecostal group thinks it's okay for women to wear pants yet they call themselves Pentecostal. Honest disagreement is okay.

So if a Hermaphrodite ( one that has both male and female genitalia) chooses to be with a man is he/she sinning? Or if he/she chooses to be with a female instead is he/she sinning,LOL.

To date, no evidence of a "homosexual gene" has been found. All evidence supports the fact that homosexuality is a lifestyle choice, not a predetermined genetic trait such as being right handed or left handed, or having a specific skin color.

As a matter of fact, according to information provided by Ben Rast at Contender Ministries, "A British psychologist has had enormous success in providing 'reorientation' therapy to homosexuals who want to change. This is not a surgery or a medical treatment, but it is effective. How could it be effective if the cause of homosexuality is physical? Well, it couldn't be. Homosexuality is a choice, not a genetic predisposition."

I can full well understand, because of some quirk, birth defects that, could produce both physical and biological abnormalities...once or twice in a "blue moon"....but that is not what is happening....its a lifestyle....

A hermaphroditic organism is one that has a complete set of both sex organs. Only animals such as snails and worms can be hermaphrodites.

Humans are NOT born with both sets of sex organs, that is a common MYTH. There are people who are born with some mixture of male and female tissues though and they are more correctly identified as "Intersex(ed)". There are dozens of intersex conditions. They range from not visible to ambiguous.

In order for it to be a choice then that would mean that EVERY man and woman would have to be bi-sexual. They would have to be attracted to both sexes and have to make a choice between one or the other sex having an attraction for both. Then it would a choice. In a gay person's situation that is not the case having no attraction to the opposite sex. Therefore it is NOT choice. If you are not and never have been attracted to a man you didn't make a choice. You were attracted to females but not to males so saying that it is a choice is an erroneous statement.

But your bible does quote Jesus as quoting the scripture and saying that 'God said'.

So is this this what you would tell those young gay people that did everything they knew to do to include praying about being gay, asking God to change them only to end up makking a choice to commit suicide over the fact that they were gay weren't able to change even after praying to be changed. I don't think situation can be reduced to oh just pray and God will change your nature.

And people like to compare gays to Sodomites but frankly I don't think God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah simply because they were gay. I think He destroyed those cities because they were to wicked to live.

There are gays that actually love the Lord God and are some opf the best people you'd ever want to know. So never let me hear anyone compare todays gays to those Sodomites.

You're right to a point.

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/artic...

In the health care industry we refer to them as ambiguous genitalia and in some cases the sex organs are so developed that a genetic dna test has to be done to determine exactly what sex the infant really is. Their genitalia can sometimes be so developed as a male and or female that the parent has to make a decision as to what sex they are gonna raise the child as.
