Every genuine disciple of Jesus Christ the Lord and faithful believer in the whole of Scriptures do not need scientists from Harvard or MIT to tell us there is no such a thing in all of the human gene structure as a homosexual gene. Every true believer ought to have always known the sexually immoral, sexually perverse, sexually deviant and abnormal behavior is a matter of choice.
No different the Adam and Even choosing to be disobedient to God and their will and desires be done over the instruction of God Almighty. They listened to the beguiling lies of the devil over the life-giving words of God the Father.
Sadly, there are growing numbers of those claiming to be Christians who are bowing to the perversions and abominations connected to homosexuality. Allowing them to enter into the church. Embracing the sin. Excusing the sin. Ignoring the sin and not mentioning the need for repentance and to cease such sexually immoral practices.
Let each of us pray fervently, diligently in faithfulness and compassion that those professing to be Christain and preaching or allowing such come out of the darkness, out of this world and into the light and truth of God’s word.
Let each of us pray fervently, diligently in faithfulness and compassion for those who have made the choice to disobey God, dishonor their bodies, practice unnatural and perverted sexually immoral acts have their hearts and spirits pierced by the truth of God’s word and they, too, come out of the darkness and sin they walk in and enter into the light and truth of all of God’s word.
Seeking to please, honor and obey Jesus as Lord over their own desires and lusts.

Harvard and MIT Scientists: There Is No Homosexual Gene

The “born that way” crowd has been searching for the homosexual gene for well over 30 years.
Well, they can call off the hunt. Scientists from Harvard and MIT have now concluded it does not exist.
The research was published in Science, hardly a propaganda arm of the vast rightwing heterosexual conspiracy. The study used information from two data banks containing the genomes – that is, the entire genetic makeup – of 477,500 people who had signed up with the UK Biobank project or the genetics company 23andMe.
Researchers identified five specific genetic variants that were found to be “associated” with (note: not “the cause of”) same-sex behavior. Altogether they accounted for less than 1% of homosexual behavior. (Emphasis mine throughout.)
Ben Neale, an associate professor in the Analytic and Translational Genetics Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, said, “There is no single homosexual gene, and a genetic test for if you’re going to have a same-sex relationship is not going to work. It’s effectively impossible to predict an individual’s sexual behavior from their genome.”
I’m guessing this will be a relief to many in the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender and queer movement, who secretly did not want a homosexual gene to be found. This is because, with advances in prenatal genetic testing, they feared that many homosexuals would be aborted before they were ever born. You can ask Down’s syndrome babies all about that.
But on the other hand, they had searched relentlessly for the homosexual gene because it would serve as an excuse for their non-normative sexual behavior. It’s not their fault, they would say, because we were born that way. You can’t blame us for our behavior, it’s in our genes. Like the scorpion said to the turtle when he stung him halfway across the river, “I can’t help it; it’s my nature, it’s the way I am.”
Well, MIT and Harvard just shredded the “born that way” excuse. David Curtis, honorary professor at the UCL Genetics Institute at the University College London, said flatly, “This study clearly shows that there is no such thing as a ‘homosexual gene.’ There is no genetic variant in the population which has any substantial effect on sexual orientation.”
Even Zeke Stroke of the pro-sodomy organization GLAAD was forced to admit, “There is no conclusive degree to which nature or nurture influence how a homosexual or lesbian person behaves.”
I was a guest on Alan Colmes’ program a few years ago, and he wanted to know if I had ever experienced homosexual urges. Now I’ve never experienced a homosexual urge in my life, but I told Alan that what particular kind of urges I have experienced is irrelevant because all of us experience temptations to engage in sexual activities we know are wrong, whether it’s pornography, prostitution, immorality, or adultery.
Perhaps, in the end, this will be the best thing that ever happened to the homosexual community. This gives them reason to accept personal responsibility for their sexual choices and stop using the genetic code as the culprit. Maybe they will realize that if indeed, sexual behavior is a choice, they can begin to make different and better and life-affirming choices.
The bottom line is that the impulse to engage in homosexuality is an impulse that can and must be resisted, like any other sexual temptation. And with the help of Jesus Christ and his sovereign power, it can be done.
