Coming out of the closet

Think a minute…An airplane pilot came on the speaker system to the passengers:  “This is your captain speaking. We’re flying at an altitude of 35,000 feet, and the speed of 600 miles an hour. I have some good news and some bad news.

The bad news is we’re lost. But the good news is we’re making great time.” There are many people who are making great time in life living in the fast lane. But they’re lost and going the wrong direction.

Homosexuals are encouraged by many people just to come out of the closet and not be ashamed of who they are. Some people say that they didn’t choose to be homosexual; God made them that way. But the fact is that there has still not been one scientific study which can prove that homosexuals are born that way. In fact, it is just the opposite. All the research and studies have shown that homosexuals can make the choice.

If people are born with any homosexual tendency at all, it is no different than any personality tendency like someone born with a bad temper. Do we say it’s OK for that person to lose control of his temper and murder people because he was born that way? Of course not! He’s  still free and able to choose not to kill people, even though he may have a naturally quick temper.

In the same way, even if someone might have the slightest natural tendency toward homosexuality, he’s still free and able to choose not to become homosexual.

If homosexuals were born that way and God made them with no choice, then why does He say homosexuality is so wrong and condemn it as sin? Throughout the whole Bible, God strongly condemns homosexuality as sin which is opposed to the clearly natural, right way He created us humans to live and reproduce. Remember, God created us Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.

Just like we are born free to choose whether or not we will be adulterers, murderers, thieves, liars, alcoholics and vicious gossips, we are also born free to choose whether or not we will become homosexual.

But the good news is that even if you already have chosen to become a homosexual, Jesus will still forgive you and give you a new life if you sincerely ask Him to start changing your heart. So won’t you come out of the closet and into the light of Jesus forgiveness and truth, so He can start setting you free today? Just Think a Minute…
