Sree, if you think that the testimony of one man sets the precedent for all, I am not sure what I can say to you. My point in providing this link was to show that God can change homosexuals, so much so that, like this man, they have a desire for the opposite sex. The Spirit of God can do this; they don't have to suppress their desire for the rest of their life. Dennis Jernigan is someone with a living testimony to this fact; there are others there on Youtube as well. But I am saying, let us not just settle for the occasional victory we see in our day. I believe God wants to release a mighty move of the Spirit that will release homosexuals on the same scale that has overcome thousands upon thousands of men and women in our day. Let us seek Him for it!And I am not contradicting myself by saying that I believe homosexuals are "born" that way. You are still misunderstanding me. I am sorry if I have not been more clear. I am not saying that this excuses them. But, for example, I know of a young woman (from a loving home, by the way) who has struggled for years with homosexual temptation. She has agonized over this. It is not willful sin. It is a "propensity" in her that has been there, I would say from birth. No, I don't believe it is genetic. But I do believe that sin in the hearts of all those born in Adam is a very deep problem that can only be met with God's provision, as outlined by Paul in 1 Cor. Ch. 6.11. Why is this provision so lacking in our day? That is the question I agonize over. I wish more Christians were doing the same.Because... how is this young woman to be treated? Lay down the law to her? Shun her? God help us if that is what we think. We must be seeking God earnestly for a return of the provision Paul had-- not the Name of the Lord Jesus alone, but the cleansing power of the Spirit of God, who comes in His Name to make manifest in power all that is in His Name.Please let us be careful not to misunderstand one another, Sree. I often appreciate your posts here on SI.
Below is something I found from my twitter feed. I watched a trailer on it and it points back to what I struggle with when it comes to men who are very feminine and women are are very masculine as well as those who are gay and it seemed evident that it is a part of them.This is supposed to be on PBS at some point I guess.Comments?The bible never addresses things like this. Only that man shall not lie with man as with woman.http://twospirits.org/TWO SPIRITS interweaves the tragic story of a mother’s loss of her son with a revealing look at a time when the world wasn’t simply divided into male and female, and many Native American cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders.
I like this testimony best because it addressed people who are born with gay tendancies.I believe the fallen nature we are born with can manifest itself in many ways. Some are born with leanings toward love of money, others lying, gossip, racism, while others lust and sexual perversions or whatever the manifestation maybe. The good news of the gospel is that Christ can free from all sin.http://youtu.be/0SRJSBzs1qc
