Continuing along with the theme of sexuality, I’m sure that I’ll hear from some one claiming there was a study done where “they” found a gene responsible for homosexuality. That study was debunked. But what if a genuine and unbiased scientific study finds incontrovertible evidence of a “gay” gene?
It still doesn’t make homosexuality all right. Many folks have tendencies toward excessive violence. Does that make it all right? Many spouses are harmed by their partners but can those people claim it’s just in their genes? And what of alcoholism, gambling addiction, or drug abuse? Would any of us excuse somebody for breaking into our homes to steal money to buy booze, drugs, or to keep on gambling?
According to the Bible, nobody is good. Psalm 14:3 (KJV) states plainly, “They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
Neither can we earn our way into heaven. Look at what Isaiah 64:6 (KJV) plainly states. “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”
The only way we can be righteous before God is to accept the payment Christ made on the cross for all who repent and yield control of their lives to him. 1 Peter 3:18 (KJV) says, “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”
I’ll be writing more on this subject in my next book called You Think You’re Going to Heaven? Contrary to what we might think, we all are aware of God. As Paul aptly wrote in Romans 1:20 (KJV), “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they (meaning humanity) are without excuse:”
