APA revises 'gay gene' theory

From the "no surprise here" department:

"The attempt to prove that homosexuality is determined biologically has been dealt a knockout punch. An American Psychological Association publication includes an admission that there's no homosexual "gene" -- meaning it's not likely that homosexuals are born that way.

For decades, the APA has not considered homosexuality a psychological disorder, while other professionals in the field consider it to be a "gender-identity" problem. But the new statement, which appears in a brochure called "Answers to Your Questions for a Better Understanding of Sexual Orientation & Homosexuality," states the following:..."

The article can be read here...

Of course, there is no "gay gene". Never has been one any more than there is one for lying, lusting, stealing, coveting, failing to put God first, idolatry, killing or any other of the commandments.

Homosexuality is an expression of fallen sinfulness. It is the final judgment on a society that has abandoned God, per Romans 1. And it is a part of a list of those sins which betray the reality that a person is lost.

Ever lied? Stolen? Lusted after someone not married to you? Before God, that would make you a lying, thieving adulterer and that is only three of the ten commandments. Say you only lied once so you're not a liar? It only takes one rape for us as a society to call a person a rapist, no?

See yourself as a man before a judge. A just judge. You've been found guilty of some felony and you know you are headed for prison. What are you going to do? Ask him to forgive you? Based on what? You waxed his car? Would a *just* judge do that? Of course not! He must judge based on the law.

But Jesus, the righteous Judge Who created all things by Himself and for Himself and upholds all things by the Word of His power, came around to your side of the bench and paid the penalty for you, bearing the righteous judgment and wrath of God. "He Who knew no sin became sin for us, that we may become the righteousness of God through Him". (2 Cor. 5:21).

He paid the penalty for me. And he paid it for all who will repent and trust in what He did.

Turn from your sin and trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ, as you would trsut in a parachute! One day, you will have to jump from this "plane" called life!
