I was brought up in a mixture of religions tho my momma had me as roman Catholic now my uncle who I believe was protestant who was also my godfather in his late 20 I believe is when he left his wife n children to move in n make a life with his boyfriend.. most the family turned against him n his children Neva Eva talked to him again..Amen, all things are possible through God.
While not every believers in the doctrine of Total Depravity, most will agree
that mankind is messed up. Even people who will say that mankind is good
at the core and just need a little loving, are the same ones who will have
cameras in their home and own a gun for protection because deep down in
their hearts they know that people are evil and many will do bad things
if they think they can get away with it or if no one is looking.
On the gay topic, I will say as a professional that 90% of all the clients
that I've worked with who have identified as gay have some type of trauma
such as being molested as a child, or growing up without a male in the home,
or being abused in a way which turned them off to the opposite sex.
So the data supports that this issue (as we know if very spiritual) also has
a strong social/environment component meaning people weren't born that way,
but ended up pursuing that lifestyle after those events (abuse, trauma, etc) happened.
Also another thing that people confused is feminine males and homosexual males.
A man can be feminine but that doesn't mean he has to be attracted to other males.
The role of society is to shape boys to be men and girls to be women, but we live
in a society where they want to have gender neutral toys and everyone using
the same bathrooms, and changing pronouns, and when you have abuse
on top of that, no wonder we have so many people confused with gender identity issues.
With all that said, I agree with you OP, Jesus can change anyone.
Love and God bless.
After yrs of being with the dude dude died from cancer I believe n my uncle well his life was turned upside down... Once he was a man who kept a impeccable clean home very organized become very disorganized n unable to keep house so to say.. he had no friends n only 2 of us would go n check n help as much as we could which Neva seemed it was enough... But I do believe in my heart of hearts that he turned his life back to YH...
I remember our last conversation like it was yesterday I can see it too He said even Yeshua had forgiven the prostitute...
He was so filled with sorrow it had just broke my heart...
Ova his lust he gave up his family friends n children n wife n he saw that I believe....
I've learned not to judge on outward appearances we don't know how broken n scarred the one next to us are..
N Neva Eva pass a judgement on a person cause we don't know if they will accept Christ on their death bed..
For what we do to one of YHs we do unto YH Himself
