how can you call something a sin if its natural and uncontrollable?? should gay people just suppress their feelings forever? regardless of what you may think, it is not possible to change your sexuality. try it. can you make yourself gay suddenly? physically attracted to the same sex? no, you cant. neither can gay people. how can that possibly be unnatural and hated by god??
Supposing that something existing naturally is God’s stamp of approval doesn’t really work out. We’d have to apply that same logic to all naturally occurring phenomena including cancer, lying, per-marital sex, and polyamory.
The Christian boasts of nothing that is merely possible. We believe in a virgin birth and a Resurrection from the dead. Impossibility is the basis of our entire faith.
With that being said, we believe in transformation and regeneration through Christ Jesus that enables us to transcend what is natural, normal, and possible, and enables us to live the impossible life that is pleasing to God.
It is arguable that every single thing that God in His righteousness calls us to abstain from is natural and a normal part of human nature. But that doesn’t make it okay. When Jesus rebuked Peter at Matt 16:23 His reasoning was that Peter’s mind was on things of men, or things that are limited to the human experience.
My point in all of this is that we don’t get to use the existence of our sin nature as an argument in favor of our sin nature. When we knelt at the cross and surrendered our lives to Jesus, our lives became His. We are now dead to the flesh and our own desires. It is now Christ who lives in us.
The world can live however the want to live. It should be expected that they will. But the Christian doesn’t have that option. All who bear the name of Christ are responsible to no longer live for ourselves and what makes us happy. We have a responsibility to die to ourselves for the sake of our king. Suppression? no. Self Denial? The bearing of one’s cross? The dying to one’s self? Absolutely. The difference? With man we are limited to the natural, but with God all things are possible.
