3 Myths About Being Gay
Myth #1 : Homosexuality is normal and biologically determined.
Myth #2 : Homosexuals cannot change, and if they try, they will suffer
great emotional distress and become suicidal. Therefore, treatment to
change homosexuality must be stopped.
Myth #3 : We must teach our children that homosexuality is as normal
and healthy as heterosexuality. Teenagers should be encouraged to
celebrate their same-sex attractions.

Over the years I have had many loving people tell me that Christians need to love gay
oriented people. Of course this is true! It is about time that Christians realize God calls us
to love others! The problem that I find is the differing 'opinions' on how we should express
this love!
All too many people are under the misunderstanding that loving someone means lying to
them! How this came about I can only guess. Society is disordered, so why not believe it is
more 'loving' to tell a gay their lifestyle is normal then to tell them; "the truth in love"
(Ephesians 4:15).

The following is some information that might help people really love men and women with a
disordered homosexual tendency.

Do not misunderstand me, please.. Being attracted to people of the same sex is not a sin.
“A homosexual orientation is not morally wrong just as no moral guilt can be assigned to
any inclination that a person has. However, based on natural moral law, the Church
believes that homosexual acts are contrary to human nature and therefore morally wrong.”
(Dr. Kenneth Howell)


There are basically 4 proofs that being Gay is a disordered Lifestyle.
Scientific
Medical
Logic
Religious

SCIENCE
According to scientific research being Gay is not biological. It is a Lifestyle choice.
However there may indeed be biological factors that contributed to that choice.            
The Innate-Immutable Argument Finds No Basis in Science

MEDICAL
Up until the mid-1970's there was no concept of "homosexuality" as being a normal
Lifestyle by the American Psychiatric Assoc. (APA).
The information I have read shows that the medical community who spearheaded the
appeal to remove homosexuality from the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual", did so
because, at the time, psychoanalysis had little or no effect on the disorder of
homosexuality. The reasoning was that if change isn't possible then why put anyone
through the trauma of trying.
Modern research has shown that many homosexually oriented individuals can change to
heterosexuals!

So there is a move to place homosexuality back on the disordered list. However there is a
political movement with tremendous financial backing that wants to stop the truth from
getting out!

LOGIC
Logic dictates that homosexuality is disordered.
When a man and a woman lie naked side by side, the body parts fit, to a purpose of life.
When 2 men or 2 women lie naked side by side we see no such comparison.

RELIGION
People, try to defend homosexuality by telling me that since homosexuality is a 'religious'
issue, I should not impose my religion on everyone else.
First: All rules and laws are based on moral codes of one sort or another. For example
Murder is against the Law, as taken from; "Thou Shalt Not Kill".
Second: Homosexuality can be taken out of the religious realm, as seen by the above
information.
Third: In the Bible it is quite clear that living a homosexual lifestyle goes against God's
Law. (Genesis. 19; Leviticus. 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; Jude 1:7 etc.)


I am not saying that you have to be straight for God to love you. God loves all mankind
equally. He also desire all men to come to the knowledge of the Truth. There is 'One"
Truth, not many. What I am saying, is that, actively engaging in a gay lifestyle is a sin. I am
also saying, being gay is a disorder of the mind.
You need to, with God's Grace, actively seek to control that part of your life, to the extent
that is possible for you.

St. Paul tells the Ephesians to 'share the truth in love' Ephesians 4:15 true love is truth.

A Natural Response to Homosexuality
Q:
It is easy to show Scripture condemns homosexuality. Can a case be made without
referring to Scripture?

A: One way is by showing how homosexuality violates natural law. Many people have a
basic ethical intuition that certain behaviors are wrong because they are "unnatural." For
example, virtually everyone would agree that bestiality (sex with animals) is unnatural. We
perceive intuitively that the natural sex partner of a human is another human, not some
lower animal. If one can argue in this fashion, then one can also argue (drawing on the
same intuition) that the natural sex partner of a man is a woman and of a woman, a man.

This is also supported by considering the nature of reproductive organs. It is clear that in
nature some things have inherent functions (called teleologies by philosophers). In the
human body the function of the heart is to pump blood, of the teeth to tear and grind
substances (usually food). Reproductive organs also have teleologies which can be easily
discerned. The physical design of each organ, as well as the process of human
reproduction, is geared for this function. To violate this arrangement is to engage in an
unnatural act--thereby offending God, the author of natural law.
Lord Jesus, please pour your Grace
upon the gay community. Heal the brokenness
we have absolute confidence
that you can bring your people together
we give you absolute permission to move
Amen
