WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE HOMOSEXUAL? IS IT INHERITED?
Three possible reasons why people may go through a phase of being interested in someone of the same sex could be curiosity, slower sexual maturity, or misguided messages from the media that approve of homosexuality. There is no conclusive proof that homosexuality is inherited. (Experts such as Harvey, Nicolosi, Whitehead, Rudegeair et al, say that it is more likely to be socially caused, e.g. by a non-loving parent and/or various other types of neglect).
NOW HERE IS THE REAL KICKER.
A pastor, who is very connected to God, tells a story. He asked God why it is that his brother was gay and yet hes was not. You will not find this answer in any psychology book.
God said that when his brother was in the womb, there were destructive arguments between the mother and the unreasonable father. His brother took the side of the mother, his more feminine side.
A combination of both biological and social factors combined mold people into who they are and determines the mindset of one that chooses to engage in criminal behavior. We are not saying that homosexuality is criminal, but there are similarities.
The social environment is the main reason why individuals commit crime, and, secondly, crime occurs and is fostered by biological traits that eventually lead to criminal behavior. So it is all about the environment: one’s peers are those individuals that tend to coerce or indirectly effect the decision making of another. It’s also all about the biological rejection of a parent from a child in the womb.
HOW DOES THE CHURCH REGARD HOMOSEXUALITY?
To have a homosexual orientation means to be sexually attracted to someone of the same sex. The homosexual act is an act of grave, but the tendency towards the act is seen by the Church as a disordered condition. Whilst never accepting the sin we must always love the sinner, always being ready to give a respectful account of the truth.
IS GOD ANTI-GAY?
Homosexual activity is condemned in the following passages of the Bible:
“In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” Romans 1:27
“We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine.” 1 Timothy 1:9,10
“Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 1 Corinthians. 6:9
“Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable. Leviticus 18:22
Gradually I began to understand that my sexuality was not something I owned, but something God owned in me, and that the clear witness of Scripture was to a dual purpose for sexuality. Sex, in God’s intention, is meant to do two things: provide for the procreation of children and build up husbands and wives in the love, respect, and life of each other. How did this square with the kind of sex with which I was most familiar, particularly in light of its inevitably transient nature? After all, homosexual sex is completely and unalterably divorced from the responsibility of procreation. Is this really how God intended we should use our sexuality?
Homosexual orientation is not a choice for most people, but being gay is, and it is this choice which motivates homosexual groups ranging from Dignity to Act UP. HENRI HOUWEN
IT’S MY OPINION!
‘I have a right to my opinion,’ says the modernist or relativist, meaning, ‘I have a right to expect you to treat my opinion as valid.’ Ironically, in a world where one person’s opinion is as good as another’s, those who insist that their opinion is the correct one are seen as rude, judgmental and hating.
“Whatever I do in my private life is nobody else’s business.” … Really!
We can believe what we choose. Unfortunately we are answerable for what we choose to believe.
What is the TRUTH? According to the liberal Christians or relativist, there are no absolute truths or absolute truths cannot be known. Relativism leads to ‘wishy-washy, airy-fairy, feel-good’ Christianity.
There is already a moral code which is built into us. Every social animal needs a set of social rules – ways of behaving that allow communities to defend, protect and support one another. Yet, their thinking is like the analogy of a man walking through fog. Everything distant is soft and fuzzy but everything close up is clear: steal his car and a moral relativist suddenly KNOWS exactly what right and wrong is.
When you engage such culture-bound people in conversation, you will inevitably hear them express notions, which appear absurd even under their own dim lighting. They have an inability to articulate any moral position at all: the only response they can muster is that “people should be able to do what they want.”
Some see religion as being too stoic with a lot of don’ts. They turn to the new age movement for answers; this makes no demands on you. You are not required to change: no sin – no judgment. Heaven has been redefined: it is here on earth. You simply align yourself with the universe. To make things worse, they have a vocal disdain for the moral authority of their church and God.
There will always be an unconscious search for the meaning of life. God has built this propensity into His creation. It can be likened to a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip imbedded into our brain. This yearning is not unlike thirty-something women anxious to find husbands and have children. Ironically, the hole, which we try to fill in life, keeps on getting bigger no matter what success you experience. There is really no way to fill this spiritual hole in the material world.
When persons in conscience have the courage to face the more serious questions of human existence-particularly questions related to the purpose of life, to suffering and to dying-they come to the same realization of St. Augustine: “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee“: excerpt from Confessions. “All are yours, and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s” 1 Corinthians 3: 22 or, the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours if you wish.
Few people spend time thinking about God. They blame God for everything that they dislike. They even profess an utter disbelief in God and they think God will go away, by saying, “There is no God!”. Whist! Just like that! They pronounce the magic words and God disappears in their mind. Yet, their hateful heart deceives the mind.
What is the TRUTH? Let us return to the original question. If you want to know what people say is the truth ask the ones that were on the Titanic. They boarded it on opinion, they disembarked very unceremoniously, some never to know and some never to forget.
THE TRUTH: the Titanic was sinkable. So the wisdom of a decision rests on the outcome of the decision. So decisions should be based on the eternal truth that never changes rather than man’s opinions that constantly and frequently change. Jesus said, “Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.” John 17:17
“He does what is right and just, he shall preserve his life;
since he has turned away from all the sins which he committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die (in eternity).” Ezekiel 18:27,28
“We know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28) so apparently suffering or problems work out for God’s purposes and your ultimate benefit.
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19) because “the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil”. 1st Peter 3:12 So it seems that we can’t solve this on our own, but we have God’s own guarantee.
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.
Walk with Me.
“I love you.
Some teach that homosexuality is not a sin. It is very clear in the Bible that every homosexual act in sinful, and marriage of two of the same sex is a horrible sin. Do not accept what society is teaching you because today, most governments follow the evil one and they have rejected Me.
There are some who know that they tend towards homosexuality but as they are My followers, they will remain single and never have any sexual relations with another person of their own sex. From the very beginning with the creation of Adam and Eve, marriage has been between one man and one woman. No one has the right to change this.
Help to form many of these communities in the places where you live and support them. If you are isolated, you will not survive. If you only go to Church on Sunday and there is nothing during the week, you will fall away. You need support from other believers in order to survive and grow.
Do some charitable work such as visiting the sick at home or in the hospital. Visit the elderly and help them in their loneliness. Be men and women of prayer who spend time alone with Me and who go to church and receive Me in Holy Communion.
Walk with Me and the faith will be strong in your communities. I bless you.”
The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:
Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.
HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?
Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.
2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?
After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.
Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!
Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
