gymleaderoscar said: Maybe you were never gay to begin with. I mean seriously. Homosexuality isn't a choice and can not simply be "banished" from an individual. I just don't see why you are so against it, aren't we all human in the end?
I can totally understand where you are coming from. If our positions were reversed, or like it was 5 years ago, I would have said that too. You are absolutely, 100% correct: homosexuality cannot be banished from an individual. Sexual identity goes deep into the very core of a person and is an integral part of the self. In fact, anyone who tries to imply that someone can choose not to be gay simply has no idea what they are talking about. I would NEVER advocate that kind of message.
What I am talking about, what happened to me (see http://thevindicatedword.blogspot.com/) and what has happened to others (see http://transformedbyjesus.blogspot.com/) is nothing less than an absolute, incredible, amazing, total miracle of God. I could not have changed myself anymore than a man born blind could make himself see, but God had mercy on me and changed me, and has caused me to love Him more than life itself.
We are all born into sin, every person is a sinner of his or her own special brand, destined for God’s judgment. Christ died for us so that we might be re-born, be made into a “new creation” and have everlasting life. While Jesus walked on the earth He raised people from the dead, gave sight to the blind, opened the ears of the deaf, and healed the lame. That is what he did for me too—no less miraculous.
