I think it’s perfectly ok! Because if God wasn’t ok with it then why would he make people that way?

Actually, God didn’t make people that way; It is often the result of dysfunctional families.Its very often because they have a bad father/mother figure. If you think you are gay/lesbian ect., it is definitely something you can overcome. Just like any other sin, many have worked and prayed to overcome it and have found their natural gender instincts come back to them. Yes, God still loves gays and lesbians, but their sin does not make him happy. The Bible says to repent of our sins and believe in Jesus and then we will be saved. No, nobody is perfect, but if you make an effort to become right with God because you believe he loves you and you want to be saved; you should work on getting those sins out of your life; with God’s help and amazing patience.

The Bible says “Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.”-Romans 1:26-27

I’m pretty sure that it’s biological. Not everyone has a dysfunctional family; it’s just the way some people are. It’s something present in over 1,500 species, so it’s obviously not based purely on dysfunctional families.

I agree with daughter of the king. Also, I know a girl who dated the wrong kind of guys all her life, so she finally got so sick of it she figured she might as well “switch”. I don’t know if thats just her or what…. Anyways, I think daughter of the king pretty much hit the nail on the head :]

God loves you no matter what, and to Him sin is sin. Being gay is no better than lying to your parents. It’s againts what He wants for us. I think the reason people are gay is not because they’re born gay (there would be entire gene pools of gays), but because they’ve been mislead.

Everyone is born different. Some more than others. When you’ve been pushed into being an outcast, you start to think “Well maybe there’s something else…maybe there’s a reason i’m so different”. It’s hard breaking the mold, especially in school. From the time you’re a preteen to mid twenties, you’re in what Piaget calls “Identity Vs. Identity confusion”. This means you’re trying to find yourself and where you really belong. In this time you’re also going through puberty and you really feel awkward and out of place. Somewhere along the lines you realize that the “difference” you’ve been feeling is actually homosexuality.

There are gays in my family and I don’t love them any less. I don’t think people are born gay, I just think it happens. It’s something that can be overcome by prayer. We all do things that make God unhappy, but if you’re strong enough in your faith God will get you through the storm.

I think God might have something against it but it’s not caused by dysfunctional families. I believe God makes us a certain way for he has a plan for all of us!

I have some friends who are gay and lesbian and bi but I don’t know what to say. My friends all say it’s ok but my parents disagree strongly. I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place.

To be honest, I believe it is perfectly fine. People are Christian and date the same sex. No, God may not be completely happy with your decision but he will forgive you, you are His child, and he loves you no matter what or who you are.

Breezy, If God is not completely happy then it is not perfectly fine. I do agree that he will forgive, though.

God loves every single one of us, no matter what interests we have. Sure, this was not how we were made to be, but God will always want to make you happy, even though we are sinful. This is a really good point, because not most people believe that Christians can be gay or lesbian. There’s nothing wrong with liking your same gender as long as your respectful to others, yourself and of course, Christ.
Personally, I’m straight, but that does not stop me from encouraging others to be who they are, and finding acceptance through our wonderful Lord. I hope that you can over come the barriers that you need to in order to find happiness, though always remember, be respectful about it and never go overboard.

As for whether God approves of it or not, I think that question is answered quite plainly in the bible verse that daughteroftheking gave.
