Refuting the Book “Born That Way After All” and
the Compromised Preachers Who Support it
by David J. Stewart | January 2017
James 1:13, “Let no
man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of
God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.”
I was surprised today while listening to a sermon by Pastor Steven Anderson (website). There is an ungodly book (published in 2015) titled, “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL,” authored by Dr. David J. Nixon and R. G. Hamm. They also have a website at BornThatWay.org. The book is unscriptural and promotes a wicked philosophy of tolerance for sin. What surprised me is that the website lists Dr. Bob Gray Sr. and Pastor Jeff Owens, as being supporters of the book and ministry. The book is an ungodly perversion of the Scriptures!!!
I am trying to understand why Dr. Gray and Pastor Owens would approve of something evil like this. Both of these good men have counseled tens of thousands of people combined throughout their church ministries. So I tread lightly and don't want to criticize them in my article, this is not my intent. However, I will voice my opinion of this ungodly book “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” and their ungodly “BORNTHATWAY.ORG” website. The book is clearly a sinful attempt to bridge the gap between the ungodly homosexual community and the New Testament Church. Dr. David Nixon and his co-author are trying to straddle-the-fence on the issue of homosexuality. As far as I'm concerned, they are pulling on the same rope as the Devil.
David J. Nixon and R. G. Hamm base their strange doctrine on Matthew 19:12, “For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.” Being a eunuch from a mother's womb simply means, for one reason or another, that a man is born impotent. The Greek word for “eunuch” in Matthew 19:12 is eunouchos, meaning, “a castrated person (such being employed in Oriental bed chambers); by extension an impotent or unmarried man; by implication a chamberlain (state officer).” Here's some helpful Bible commentary on the topic, “EUNUCH.”
The Bible mentions eunuchs, who are born “THAT WAY” from the womb, which is equivalent to castration. This is not homosexual lust! A eunuch “FROM THE WOMB” cannot procreate, that is, cannot have children. A homosexual can procreate (with a woman if they so choose). Obviously, homosexuals do not come “FROM THE WOMB”! And as I will evidence to you later, many people who profess to be “heterosexual” admit to committing homosexual acts at times. This tosses a monkey-wrench into David Nixon's retarded hypothesis! Homosexuality is a sin, and Christians won't be able to help sodomites unless they address the issue as such. God only saves THE UNGODLY (Romans 4:5-6). It is evil to tell homosexuals that there's really no problem, because God made them “THAT WAY AFTER ALL,” intending for them to become celibate as eunuchs for God. That doesn't solve the problem, which is, HOMOSEXUALS ARE SINNERS in need of the new birth. Unless a homosexual is willing to confess to God, “I AM A SINNER,” they cannot be saved. You've got to admit that you are a sinner to believe the Gospel. You need to know what you're being saved from!
On their “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” website, they say...
“The gay community is not the battle field, they are the mission field. They are not the enemy, they are the mission itself. We are in a spiritual battle, but if you view them as the enemy, you are fighting the wrong war (Ephesians 6:12). Our book “Born That Way After All” explains God’s unique design and purpose for those who are not attracted to the opposite sex.”
Although I agree that the gay community is a mission field, from a soul-winning perspective; I totally disagree when such reasoning is used to silence Christians about the evils of homosexuality which is targeting, recruiting and hurting America's children. Hugh Hefner's perverted Playboy business could be called “a mission field” too. We could say that the dirty magazine business is not the enemy as well. But does that mean preachers and Christians should be silent about such evils? Of course not. Now, more than ever, pastors and Christians need to expose the evils of homosexuality in our society. Silence is not golden, it is yellow cowardice. The false idea that exposing homosexuality as a filthy sin will hinder reaching the gay community for Christ is a big lie!
Homosexuality Is A Filthy Deathstyle (homosexuals account for 75% of all Syphilis cases!). Placing an adopted child into the hands of two homosexual parents (perverts) ought to be considered criminal child abuse! But our nation's ungodly courts disregard God's Word. Americans can legally commit adultery, film themselves in bed having sex and upload it to the internet, get drunk, murder their children by abortion, homosexuals can marry and children are forced into their care by adoption, et cetera. In eternity, God will hold people accountable for even their words (Matthew 12:36).
The insane notion that believers will never convert homosexuals to Christianity by calling them “perverts” is totally untrue. When the rich man in Hell begged Abraham to send Lazarus from the dead to warn his five brothers, “lest they also come into this place of torment” (Luke 16:28). Abraham plainly said that if people won't listen to the Word of God, THEY WON'T GET SAVED, even if they see miracles and supernatural signs. “Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead” (Luke 16:29-32).
The ungodly book effectively attempts to silence Christians to the evils of homosexuality, portraying sodomites as a needy group who ought to be ministered to (informed that God really made them to be eunuchs) and otherwise left alone. So while naive preachers are spending the rest of their life reaching out to gays with the Gospel, America's children are being homosexualized. If churches must become worldly to attract the homosexual community, then they're coming to apostate religion, not Jesus Christ.
Although I disagree with Pastor Steve Anderson's lack of love for the homosexual community, I must say that Brother Anderson COMES MUCH CLOSER TO BEING RIGHT than today's compromised preachers who hobnob with gays and won't preach against them!!! HOMOSEXUALITY IS EVIL. You're NEVER going to win sodomites to Christ by tolerating their sins. A fundamentalist preacher ought to be a balance of grace and truth, of strength and beauty! Jude 1:22, “And of some have compassion, making a difference.” John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” The Word of God condemns the sinful world. That's why gays reject the King James Bible, changing it into a lie (Romans 1:25). All of the modern PERversions of the Bible completely remove the word “sodomite.” The unscriptural website “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” says they “do not necessarily endorse the term... 'homosexual' for several Biblical reasons.”  These are wicked people, who are trying to silence fundamentalist Christians about the evils of homosexuality. The idea that preaching and standing against open public wickedness, is a form of hate, is as satanic as can be!!!
The Big Problem in America Today is Tolerance, Not IntolerancePastor Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) said the following very true words in 1942:
Men talk much of tolerance. The world is not suffering from intolerance. We are suffering from tolerance. We tolerate most anything. There was a time when women who had bad names were put out of society, but that isn't true today. We talk about the mantle of charity which we throw around the shoulders of fallen people. It isn't charity. It is a tolerance of evil. Sin doesn't look as black as it used to look. Men are wondering if there is after all such a thing as sin. Many people have ceased to believe in Hell. That is because they don't believe in sin. Sin always produces hell. No; we are not suffering from intolerance. We should love sinners, but hate the sin. It is all right to love gamblers, but we ought to hate gambling. We should love drunken “bums” and pity them, but we should hate the liquor traffic. We should love and pity fallen women, but we should hate their sin.

Dr. Bob Jones Sr. is 100% correct! Our problem today in our churches is tolerance!!! Trying to convince homosexuals that their sodomite feelings are acceptable, because God MADE THEM THAT WAY AFTER ALL, is wicked!!! The “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” ministry is tolerance for sin in the name of loving the sinner, which is sinful compromise. I have no problem with a ministry that addresses homosexuality as a filthy, dirty, sin, while trying to lead homosexuals to Christ with the Gospel. What Dr. David J. Nixon, Johnny Nixon, Joshua Agan and R.G. Hamm are trying to do is convince homosexuals that there's NOTHING WRONG WITH THEM! But there IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG WITH THEM... THEY ARE DIRTY, FILTHY, ROTTEN SINNERS... JUST LIKE YOU AND ME, AND EVERYONE ELSE!!! They need to get saved, but you cannot lead them to Christ unless THEY ADMIT THEY ARE SINNERS!!! So don't dare talk about evangelizing homosexuals without telling them that THEY ARE SINNERS. 1st John 1:10, “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”
Dr. Bob Jones Sr. wrote the preceding comments about the problem of tolerance for sin, back in 1942, before Americans owned televisions. In 1946 only 6,000 American households had a television. Only wealthy people could afford them! Albeit, by the year 1952 Americans owned 22,000,000 TV sets! Dr. Jones saw way back then in 1942 that “sin doesn't look as black as it used to look.” Today in 2017, we are surrounded by all manner of filth and wickedness, and people have grown totally accustomed to it. What homosexuals need is to be told that they are ungodly sinners in need of the new birth in Christ Jesus. Tolerating their filthy deathstyle won't help them, it will CURSE THEM!!! If a man won't come to Christ as a guilty sinner, receiving the gift of eternal life from a loving holy God, then He cannot be saved any other way.
Biblically, there is no middle ground, there can be no compromise. The homosexual community even criticizes the book, at TheGaVoice.com website. They criticize the book because they want to be accepted as they are, that is, proud homosexuals. This is all really strange. We've got fundamental Baptist pastors meeting the ungodly homosexual community halfway. The truth is that there will NEVER be true harmony between Bible-believing Christians and ungodly homosexuals. Proverbs 29:27, “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.”
The basic premise of the “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” book and website is that some people are created by God with no desire for the opposite sex. Therefore, they say, Christian parents and leaders ought to counsel professed homosexuals (whether they be children or church members) to accept their homosexual feelings, as a sign from God that they were created to be eunuchs. This is as silly as it is unbiblical. Think about what they are claiming. It is absurd. If a person is made by God to be a “eunuch,” then why would they want to have sex at all? Why would God give them homosexual desires? Obviously, homosexuals are not eunuchs!!! This stuff is so evil. I'm really surprised that any independent fundamental Baptist preacher would support this garbage!!! Look at the long list of churches, names and ministries who support this filth!!!
On the Roman Catholic Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), a few years ago, I saw Priest John Corapi teach that if a person thinks they are a homosexual, God is calling them to a life of celibacy. Although I don't want to speak for Dr. Gray and Pastor Jeff Owens, I think this is the idea that they are supporting. However, that is not what the book and website are claiming... they are claiming that God makes some people homosexuals, as a sign that He is calling them to be a eunuch. They claim that homosexuals are “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL.” There are numerous problems with this errant claim.
Mainly that God is a holy God Who doesn't tempt men to sin, nor does he create adulterers or homosexuals. God does create the natural desire for sex, and create the natural bodily ability to fulfil that desire in a sacred marriage; but God does not make men abuse that gift and ability, so that unholy men can rape, commit adultery and homosexuality, violating His Word. God does not create homosexual lust!!! To say that God makes homosexuals is akin to saying that God makes obese people. If you are 700 pounds, did God make you that way? No, unless you have a serious health problem, you did that to yourself! Homosexuality is ABUSE... Romans 1:24, “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves.”
Sexual desire is not a sin. “Lust” is the Bible word for sinful desire. It is not a sin to sexually desire one's own wife or husband. The Bible condemns lusting upon someone who is married to another person. That is adultery. Matthew 5:28, “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” The Bible also condemns sexually lusting upon the same sex...
Romans 1:25-28a, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind...”
The Word of God calls homosexual lusts “vile affections” and a “reprobate mind”! Notice the first thing that Romans 1:25 says... WHO CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE!!! That is exactly what the homosexual community has done, corrupting the truth into a lie. That is exactly what the book “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” and the website “BORNTHATWAY.ORG” have done, changing the truth of God into A LIE!!! It is a big lie that God creates anyone with homosexual lusts. Our text verse says in James 1:13, “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.” God NEVER created anybody with homosexual lusts. God cannot be tempted, nor does He tempt anyone. God didn't create the sin nature! God created Adam upright, but Satan seduced Eve to sin, and she did, and so did Adam in full knowledge of what he was doing against God. If God created homosexuals “THAT WAY,” then He would be violating James 1:13.
God in His omniscient wisdom and omnipotent power, designed and created the wondrous human body. Sexual desire is a creation and gift of God. Genesis 1:27, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Sin is taking that which God created to be used for good, and using it for bad instead. Sex is a good thing, but only within the proper boundaries of a marriage commitment. Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” God honors heterosexual marriage! That's a man and a woman. All else is sexual perversion!!! Unbridled lust is sin. Unstrained or uncontrolled lust is a sin.
God Created Sexual Desire, But Not the Sin Nature
God doesn't make sinners! Ecclesiastes 7:29, “Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.” The errant notion that God creates someone with homosexual desires is wicked!!! NO, THEY WEREN'T BORN “THAT WAY”!!! A person sins when they are drawn away by their own lust...
James 1:13-15, “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
Homosexual lust is in the same category as adulterous lust, pedophile lust, pederast lust, bestiality lust and all sexual perversion!!! Without the guiding moral compass of the King James Bible, anybody is capable of committing anything!!! Contrary to some of the preaching that I've heard, animals DO commit homosexual acts. They are behaving on impulse. I have seen two female dogs try to mate. They are doing what feels natural, and without the presence of a male dog, while in heat, they will attempt to mate. They are acting LIKE ANIMALS. Literally, homosexuals are behaving like animals!!!
God doesn't create humans to eat themselves to death. There are more overweight obese people living in America than any other country. We are an undisciplined society. Americans are reckless in everything. People are in big debt from their uncontrolled credit card spending. Americans are obese from eating without restraint, abusing the bodily appetites. Americans are sexually depraved, lacking moral restraint concerning the fleshly appetites. This is why the U.S. abortion industry has thrived since 1973, the year abortion was legalized in all 50 states. Americans don't have the character, morality or decency to raise the children that they conceived while committing immorality. We are an out of control culture of death, decadence and debauchery.
How dare anyone blame God, attributing the homosexual deathstyle to Him. Jeremiah 7:8-10, “Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not; And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?” Literally, God says, “Will you commit all manner of wickedness, and dare come into my house, and blame me?” How dare any pastor attribute homosexuality to God!!! Just because God gave us hands, doesn't mean we were made “THAT WAY” to steal. Just because God gave us eyes, doesn't mean we were made “THAT WAY” to lust. And just because God gave us sexual desire, doesn't mean we were made “THAT WAY” to behave like animals.
Notice that the Scriptures says GOD ALSO GAVE THEM UP TO UNCLEANLINESS THROUGH THE LUSTS OF THEIR OWN HEARTS. Romans 1:24, “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves.” We read in Romans 1:28b, “God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.” What Dr. David Nixon calls “BORN THAT WAY,” God calls “A REPROBATE MIND.” There's a delicate, but definite, balance between loving the sinner and hating the sin which must be maintained, lest we dishonor God. The nearly unanimous trend today is to accept the sinner, while saying nothing about the sin, which is not love at all.
Again, Dr. Bob Jones Sr. (1883-1968) wrote:
We talk about the mantle of charity which we throw around the shoulders of fallen people. It isn't charity. It is a tolerance of evil. Sin doesn't look as black as it used to look. Men are wondering if there is after all such a thing as sin. Many people have ceased to believe in Hell. That is because they don't believe in sin. Sin always produces hell. No; we are not suffering from intolerance. We should love sinners, but hate the sin.

The worst and cruelest thing you can do to a homosexual is explain away their sin, convincing them that God made them “THAT WAY,” because they'll never be able to get saved until they acknowledge their sinnership! Homosexuality is a sin!!!
Leaving Out Bisexuals
The “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” book and website are very deceitful, because they leave out BISEXUALS!!! According to a 2016 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and a CNN article...
Bisexuality on the rise, says new U.S. survey
By Carina Storrs, Special to CNN
January 7, 2016
More women reported having had sexual contact with other women: 17.4% in the current survey compared with 14.2% in the 2006-2010 survey. And higher numbers of both women and men identified as bisexual, 5.5% of women and 2% of men, compared with 3.9% and 1.2% respectively in the last survey. ...
There is high correspondence between how survey participants identified themselves — whether straight, gay/lesbian or bisexual — and the sexual attractions and behaviors they reported, Copen said. For example, among those who labeled themselves heterosexual, 12.6% of women and 2.8% of men had had sexual contact with the same sex.
So how do the “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” ministry explain people who consider themselves heterosexuals, who have had homosexual sex? Were they “BORN THAT WAY” too? Clearly, this is a matter of lust and sin, and not being born a certain way.
In rare cases, some people are naturally born without fully formed male or female genitals. No one is 100% hermaphroditic (i.e., having both complete male and female genitals). They are impotent from birth. The Scriptures teach that God creates the human body. Psalms 139:14, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” God makes some people dumb (lacking power of human speech), deaf and blind. Exodus 4:11, “And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?” What a beautiful truth! There is nothing shameful about a person who is born a eunuch, or blind, or deaf or speechless. Romans 9:20, “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?” Glorify God for who He made you!!!
Homosexuals Were Not Born “Eunuchs”
Matthew 19:12, “For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.”
Here's some helpful commentary which I think well explains Matthew 19:10-12...
5. (Matthew 19:10-12) The disciples ask about marriage and celibacy.
His disciples said to Him, "If such is the case of the man with his wife, it is better not to marry." But He said to them, "All cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given: "For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother's womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it."
a. If such is the case … it is better not to marry: The disciples understood Jesus' teaching on marriage and divorce clearly. They understood that it was not a commitment to be entered into quickly or lightly, and considered that since marriage is so binding before God, then maybe it is better not to marry.
i. "It is not evil to marry, but good to be wary; to look ere one leap." (Trapp)
b. All cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given: Jesus recognized that celibacy is good for some, for the one who is able to accept it (such as Jesus Himself and the Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 7:7-9).
i. "If there be any who can receive this saying, who can without marriage bridle his list, and so live in a solute and single state as not to sin against God by any extravagancy of lusts, and impure desires and affections, and desire, and shall do so, that he may be more spiritual, and serve God with less distraction, and be a more fit instrument to promote the kingdom of God in the world, let him do it." (Poole)
ii. "But this is not every man's happiness; and where it is, the pride of virginity is no less foul a sin than impurity, saith Augustine." (Trapp)
c. For there are eunuchs who were born thus: The term eunuch was used figuratively for those who voluntarily abstain for marriage. Jesus here gave three kinds of eunuchs.
- Those who are born without the capacity for sex and marriage.
- Those who are made by others without the capacity for sex and marriage.
- Those who are choose to live without sex and marriage for the kingdom of heaven's sake.
i. Paul said that the one who is unmarried because of calling should be holy both in body and in spirit (1 Corinthians 7:34). Therefore these eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake should come to peace with their celibacy both physically and spiritually; it should not be a consistent torment to them in either aspect.

Matthew 19:12 has nothing to do with homosexuality. Being born without the capacity to have sex is not homosexuality. The crazy social trend in America today that is intended to confuse young people is not Biblical. All across the country public school teachers are being forced to stop referring to children as “boys” and “girls,” lest they offend transgendered children. Toy stores no longer have “boys” and “girls” sections with toys, lest they ostracize transgendered children. We've lost our minds in America!!! Only Luciferians could wreak so much havoc! And don't be fooled for one second, to think this is a mere social trend. Luciferians are behind the scenes, pulling all the strings, making this insane stuff happen!!!
Do you really think Taylor Swift wanted to put this filth in her music video? Some sicko degenerate told her to do it. That's why Miss Swift's net worth is soaring now over $200,000,000. If a young woman stuck something in her private area in a local shopping mall performance, as Taylor Swift appears to be doing in her sick video, “WILDEST DREAMS,” she'd be kicked out immediately. Yet, because it is a YouTube video viewed in the privacy of one's home, she gets away with it. This is disgusting, vile and as unholy as anything ever seen!!! My God, what are they teaching young girls today??? Miss Swift openly promotes the homosexual agenda. These are perilous and wicked times!!! American television has hit rock bottom, filthy to the core!!! The internet is much worse!!! This is all leading to the total moral breakdown of America, and complete moral abandonment of faith in the holy God of the inspired King James Bible. Satan is preparing the world to embrace the man of sin, who is the Beast, the Antichrist (i.e., in place of Christ).
The book “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” is of the Devil
I love Pastor Jeff Owens and Dr. Bob Gray Sr. I promote their sermons and ministries, because my heart's desire is to help others in the Lord. I don't throw people away because I disagree with them on something. I don't stop promoting someone because they don't agree with me. My faithful web visitors know that I often promote and expose someone at the same time. Most preachers won't do that. Dr. Hyles invited Dr. R. G. Lee to preach at Pastor's School in Hammond, knowing that Dr. lee was in the compromised Southern Baptist Convention. Dr. Hyles didn't demand that someone agree with him 100% on everything, to be his friend. I like that! There's not one man that I promote whom I agree with on everything. I want to help others. If I find something that helps me, I want to share it with you also, to help you too. YOU are my Epistle. YOU are the book that I am writing. 2nd Corinthians 3:2, “Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men.” YOU are my treasure!
Having said that, I love the preaching and teaching of Dr. Bob Gray Sr. and Dr. Jeff Owens. Albeit, I do not agree with them in their support of the “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL” book and “BORNTHATWAY.ORG” website, where they are listed. I am 100% in agreement with Pastor Steven Anderson on this issue, because I believe Brother Anderson's position is 100% Biblical. Romans 1:24-32 plainly condemns the homosexual deathstyle!!! No one is born with a Sodomite tendency. Homosexuality is abnormal, against nature. We are all born with a sin-nature. If the sin-nature is allowed to flourish, uncontrolled and unbridled by moral restraint, anything evil is possible. America was doomed the day in 1963 that the King James Bible was removed from our nation's classrooms.
All human beings are born with a sin-nature. Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” We are ALL sinners by nature and by choice. A child doesn't have to be taught to steal. They have to be taught to be honest. Children must be trained and taught the Word of God. And yet, even having grown up in the best home, with the most faithful Christian parents, enrolled in a great Christian school, attending a strong Bible-believing church—They may still ruin their lives and choose to go into a reckless deathstyle of sin. Having good Christian parents does not guarantee godly children. Certainly, training up a child in the admonition and nurture of the Lord stacks everything in their favor when they become adults, but they are still sinners by nature and by choice. What a proper upbringing DOES give a child is a strong FOUNDATION for the rest of their life. So if the house of their life burns down one day, it can be rebuilt!!! Amen!
No one is “BORN THAT WAY AFTER ALL.” I am not trying to be mean or unkind to anyone. If you are not saved, you'll never get the victory over sin. Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” If you have homosexual desires as a believer, then there is a Bible verse for you. 2nd Corinthians 10:5, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
