Should someone pursue love with someone of the same gender?

The question has been asked, “God created me to love, and I, as a man, love another man. If Love is from God, should I not love?”

The fact is, God has said homosexual sex is sin. As such, it does not matter if you were created as a homosexual (through hormones, medication your mother took while pregnant, or genes), or if you became homosexual before your conscience personality was formed (through unknown abuse or hormones or medication or environment), or if you later discovered homosexual desire. How you came to desire sex with the same gender does not change whether it is something to be pursued.

God has said to not commit certain sexual acts with certain people. For the full list, you can read Gen 20:1-7; Ex 22; Deut 5;  Lev 18; Lev 20; Deut 22, Deut 27;  Mt 15:18-20; Mk 7:20-23;  Rom 1:19-32; 1 Cor 5:1-13; 1 Cor 6:9-10; 1 Cor 6:18;  1 Cor 7:2; 1 Thes 4:3-8; Heb 13:4; Rev 21:5-8.

So the question becomes when is it inappropriate to pursue love with someone. 

Basically, the answer is: if one person is too young, if the person is related to you, if one person is too unhealthy mentally, if one person is married, if the other person is not of the same religion as you, or if both people are of the same gender.

Some people want what they want regardless of the consequences, and regardless of what God says. I can do nothing more than suggest they not pursue love in the conditions God said not to, or that are unhealthy.

For those who want to do what God says, you do not pursue love when God says not to simply by relying upon God and controlling yourself. It will be hard, but you can do it.

I knew a woman who loved a man who was married. She stopped the relationship before it got further out of hand. 

I know a woman who thought herself lesbian. She no longer believes this and is happily married – she is my wife.

Just because we think something is, does not make it so. Just because something seems like it will never change does not mean it will stay the same. Just because someone loves does not mean it should be pursued.

  1. personnaly i don’t belive in the whole “god” thing.
    I think if you really are lesbain or gay and you love someone of the same gender,go for it “god” isent going to strike you down for doing so.

    The only person who can tell you what to do is you.

  2. You’re certainly free to believe what you want.

    What we believe has no bearing on the reality of the matter at hand. You can believe something and it not be true.

    Beliefs have consequences. For instance, if you believe that its OK to repeatedly have unprotected sex with someone who has AIDS, you will get AIDS. If you believe you can step off a 1000 foot cliff and not die because there is no ground beneath you (or because you think you could survive such a fall), you will be dead shortly after hitting the ground.

    The same is true for an after life. If you believe there is no God who loves you and wants what is best for you, yet allows you to make your own choices, and you choose to not believe Him, when you die, you will truly die a second death in the lake of fire.

    I pray you will ask God to show you if He exists. Read the book of John from the Bible. If you truly look for God, you will find Him.
