    Default Being gay a choice or genetically born that way?

    I have found nothing but theories when people try to prove gays are born that way. Leaving me to believe its a temptation and a choice like any other sin that tempts us. https://www.trueorigin.org/gaygene01.php

    Being gay is definitely a choice. It is not in no way hereditary..... They can't reproduce. Not even the theory of evolution supports homosexuality considering humans have to adapt to the environment based on natural selection aka survival of the fittest. Then they would say well the Earth is over-populated so we need less people, like if that is somehow a justifiable answer, God told Noah go and replenish the Earth. Humans cannot "evolve" if they can't even populate.

    Genesis 1:28 - And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

    Genesis 9:1 - And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

    Homosexuality is in fact abominable and can lead someone to hell IF they don't have Christ. All forms of LBGT are INFLUENCED by spiritual things not hereditary by a gene code. Nobody puts a gun to they head and tells em become gay or else you will die.

    Leviticus 18:22 - Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.

    Romans (1:27-28) - 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 unseemly, and receiving in themselves 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;

    1 John 5:7 - For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    To the OP...Unbelievers have to resort to opinion and theory. We should not.

    if homosexuality is a genetic trait, it must be recessive, and since homosexuals don't in general procreate, i.e. there is no 'passing down' of any genetic material..

    .. well ..

    think about it.

    But what about transgender? Is it from genes or choice?

    It's a choice, unfortunately many homosexuals use the "born that way" excuse to justify their sin
    Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    Acts 3:19 - Repent therefore and turn to God, so that your sins may be blotted out, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
    Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

    I am aware of that quote it's still a choice regardless.
    Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    Acts 3:19 - Repent therefore and turn to God, so that your sins may be blotted out, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.

    All LBGT ( Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Gay, Transgender) are viewed the same so to say you want to be trans then it means God made a mistake in making you either a male or female. The biblical God is perfect, no errors, no sin, he is all righteous so it is not a mistake but the individuals purpose into being born w.e gender God decided to make you. To this day being transgender is classified as a mental illness, this is probably a bad article to use but im sure you can google other results. So yea it is a most def a choice.

    Yes some struggle with food and obesity while others are tempted sexually to the rebellion against the natural order of creation. Still a choice but that doesn't mean the choice is easy. I believe peoples football addictions can turn sinful and I bet its mighty hard to turn away from football for a year for many people. A choice some must make.

    God doesnt make gay babies. Its a choice that sometimes happens subconsciously and demonically

    Exactly. Demons can effect physical bodies. We have very little understanding or knowledge about how the spiritual world works, that was shut off from us by God at the fall.

    Im glad to have good understanding of the spiritual realms. It helps a lot at times. Demons use many things. Most infiltration's start while the child is in the wombor in the first few years of life

    I believe this to be true as well. Also abuse at a young age is a key factor.

    As followers of Christ we should already know that we are tempted by beings we cant see that want to destroy us in their own wrath for what is coming to them. The Lord tells us they are violent and wicked, and have come to steal, kill and destroy.
    I believe any Christian who does not take those teachings seriously places more faith into the understanding of men than the Lord.

    Being gay is both a choice and not a choice. We are all tempted, whether we want to be or not. I am tempted daily, as are all of you, whether or not its the exact same temptation doesnt matter.

    The evidence of gay genes is not really evidence, its all statistics that could "suggest" evidence of a gay gene. Many many people claim its been entirely proven that its genetic, but it actually has not been proven at all : p

    The temptation for homosexuality is real, and like anyone whos been tempted with sexual urges before, it can be frustrating. But it is a choice on whether or not you follow the Lord, or follow your pleasures. That makes it a choice. We are not forced against our will to follow what urges us.

    Many Christians deal with these urges. Sadly some fall to it, and follow earthly teachings to justify themselves and to feel safe in living for their flesh. And some continue to walk with the Lord, denying their urges. As Christians, we should absolutely stand in support of those who chose the Lord over their flesh, even if the world hates us for it.
    I am a strong supporter of followers of Christ who struggle with the lbgt lifestyle. If you are struggling in faith with this like I do, feel free to contact me for support, encouragement or even for a friend. Or to give me your much needed support and encouragement as well

    I have a music page for stuff I write. And sometimes I even post on it.
