I was going to use a poll for this but I think I would rather read responses than numbers. The recent events concerning the SBC pastor got me to thinking about this question: Is homosexuality biological in nature? I will give several "sample" answers. Feel free to chose one or to give your own. Sample Answers (Note that the answers all assume homosexuality to be a sin) : 1. No. It is a choice people make plain and simple. 2. No. It is a choice people make. However there maybe psychological and sociological factors that influence that choice. 3. Maybe. The action of homosexuality is a willful choice. However there maybe be biological, psychological, and sociological factors that influence their choices. This is the result of the fall. 4. Yes, it is biological (to a great degree). However this does not mean that God approves of the behavior. They are "born that way" because of the fall. It is, in effect, a birth defect. My view? I tend to favor view number two. Clearly certain psychological and sociological factors in our lives can influence (not cause) the things we do. That does not excuse sinful behavior, however, since we have a moral will and are accountable for our actions. I have seen no evidence to support the idea that there is any biological factors. However if such evidence would arise, and I doubt it will, I would agree with position three. However at this time I am in agreement with position two. So what is your answer? PLEASE don't just reply to my answer. I ask you to answer the question for yourself then, if you wish, reply to my answer. Keep in mind all of the above positions agree that homosexuality is a sin. In Christ, Martin.
