Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

As simple as black and white

A Christian said "Homosexuality is a choice." An atheist responded "It is not a choice in the same way that you can't choose to be white. You were born black. Gay people are born gay."

We are all born with the potential to become homosexuals. This is because we have inherited a sinful nature that loves to do wrong. We can (and do) choose to lie or steal, covet or blaspheme; and any one of us at any time can make a moral choice when it comes to our sexuality. We can choose to become a pedophile, a fornicator, an adulterer, or a homosexual.

However, there is a big difference between someone having pedophilia desires and being black or being white. One is a moral choice, and according to society at the present time, it is morally wrong. The other is not a choice. See if you can figure out which is which.

"Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 9-10).

P.s. After reading this post, some have asked if I would endorse the killing of homosexuals--quoting Old Testament verses, from Hebrew civil law. Of course I wouldn’t. Why would I (living in the United States in 2010), advocate the sentence given under the civil law of nation that existed 3,000 years ago?

Also, I have a question for those of you who were obviously angered by what I have written. Why have none of you suggested that pedophiles are born that way, and they have rights, etc.? All I have done is given you the biblical perspective, and warned you of who will not enter the Kingdom of God. Again, if I didn’t care, I wouldn’t bother.

P.P.s. Individuals have responded with: "Pedophiles don't have rights because they are CAUSING HARM. They are harming children. Consenting adults HARM NO ONE. Again, it's pretty clear cut." "Said act harms children. End. Of. Story."

Therefore pedophiles that have pictures of semi-naked young children on their computers are okay? No one is being harmed. Why then is it illegal? The "I was born like it . . . it doesn’t harm anyone" doesn’t cut it in civil court. Neither will it on Judgment Day.
