In his latest Stand to Reason blog post, the Christian apologist Greg Koukl writes of the “born-that-way” debate over homosexuality:

“Christians find themselves in a fight they did not choose—facing overwhelming odds and fierce opposition—with a culture demanding we abandon the Bible on homosexuality and instead ‘celebrate diversity.’

“Unfortunately, believers often oblige. Faced with an apparent dilemma of fidelity to faith or fidelity to friends, they choose their friends. They may not abandon Christ, but they reject the Bible, at least on this issue, making it easier to compromise again on other inconvenient truths.

“With controversial issues, you have to start with facts before you start giving opinions.”

I encourage you to log on to Greg’s post in which he and Alan Shlemon provide empirical and scientific evidence on:

• Birth of the Born-That-Way Theory

• Choice to be Gay?

• Heterosexual Development in Males

• Homosexual Development in Males

• Biology and Gender Identity

• Homosexual Development in Females

• Is Change Possible?

• The Best Hope

And they provide insight into how to maneuver through the issue with tactical wisdom and grace.

Theirs is a must-read post for those on both sides of the issue, but especially for those who honestly seek to follow Jesus Christ but are confused by the way events and decisions are trending in our culture.
