Born Homosexual from a Homosexual Gene?

Is There a Homosexual Gene?


When tackling the question of whether some people were born gay, it makes sense to inquire about the possibility of inherited homosexuality. Spiritual truths are almost always easier to understand when compared to natural truths. A person whose mother and father are Japanese will not, and can not be born African, Caucasian, Latino, Arab, or any other ethnicity that does not respond to the physical appearance of the Japanese people and other Asians of similar appearance. An African cannot be born with blond hair and blue eyes anymore than a Caucasian can be born with brown skin. Certain gene pools simply will not allow certain physical characteristics. And, outside of drastic measures such as plastic surgery, there is no way to escape the physical traits produced by inherited genes.

There is, however, no such thing as a homosexual gene that causes a person to be born homosexual. It simply does not exist. Therefore, there is no such thing as inherited homosexuality as far as the natural world is concerned. But, is there such a thing as spiritual genes that can cause someone to be born homosexual? No, there is not. How then do we explain someone being naturally attracted to the same gender from a very small child?

Spiritually Inherited Homosexuality


Eyes, hair, and skin can be touched. They are physical things whose traits are determined by physical genes. Those genes dictate who will have red hair naturally and who will not have red hair. They drive what is to be a person's physical nature. On the other hand, hatred, wickedness, and homosexuality cannot be touched. They are not physical things. They are spiritual things whose traits are determined by "spiritual" genes that indeed are inherited at birth. What do we mean by this if there is no such thing as being born homosexual?

The infallible Word of God reveals that all of mankind is born a sinner. Man is born with a sinful nature that is inherited from Adam and Eve's disobedience to God, also known as the fall from grace in the garden of Eden. This means that it is perfectly natural for a person to sin. We read, "...By one man's disobedience many were made sinners..." (KJV, Romans 5:19).

The word "many" does not mean that not all were made sinners. It simply drives home that all of the people in the world are many and that those "many" people were born sinners by only one man's sin. Every single person is born a sinner. The only exceptions are Adam and Eve who were created in righteousness, and the Lord Jesus (God incarnate). We read, "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" (Rom. 5:12).

King David whose parents were followers of God, understood this truth very well. He wrote, "Behold I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me" (Psalm 51:5). David was not conceived in adultery or fornication. He is simply reminding himself that he was born with, or shaped in iniquity (sin) from the womb. He was born a sinner, because he was the offspring of Adam and Eve from whom he and his parents inherited a sinful nature. When we say things like, "He is who he is," we are referring to his nature, the way he is built, his very make-up.

Just as there are genes that affect the characteristics of the natural body such as eye color, the sinful nature, or "spiritual genes" affect the characteristics of the spiritual body such as sexual orientation. Man is a three part being consisting of a physical (natural) body, a spiritual body, and a soul/mind, or thought life (2 Thess. 5:23). This is a most important truth to remember when considering the claims that some people are born homosexual.

In the natural world, genes can "shuffle." Some are recessive, others are dominant. No one knows before birth just what "hand" will be dealt by the shuffling of the genes in the gene pool. Likewise, the sinful nature can deal any hand. But, every hand that it deals is one that is in opposition against the Lord. One person might be what some would call born homosexual, while another might be born with a very unforgiving nature. Still another person might be born with a very rebellious spirit. But, they all have one thing in common. They all come from having inherited the sinful nature.

God gave his only begotten Son, Christ Jesus, to make a way for every sinner to escape the sinful "genes" of the sinful nature. In the natural, we cannot do anything to change our genes. We are the gender and the ethnicity that we are. We can undergo plastic surgery and even an operation to change our gender, but none of that will change the genes we have been dealt.

In the spirit realm, however, even the most corrupt nature can be changed, if the individual will live in obedience to Jesus, who will literally swap out the sinful nature and replace it with a divine nature. This is why the apostle Peter taught, "...Jesus our Lord, according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue; whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises that by these ye might be partakers of the DIVINE NATURE, having ESCAPED THE CORRUPTION..." (1 Peter 1:2-4).

Come to Jesus as You Are


No person was born homosexual. He or she was simply born with a sinful nature just like "straight" people. The sinful nature or spiritual "gene pool" dealt homosexuality to some people. It dealt to others the tendency to be hateful. It dealt the tendency to be envious to some, and a craving for pornography to others. The list of other ungodly spiritual characteristics dealt to people is a very long one, and is found in the Bible. Everyone has his or her battle or "cross to bear" to continually live in obedience to Jesus.

This truth should never be confused with messages that preach a need to "clean" ourselves up before Christ can accept us as His servants. Man cannot clean himself up from any sin. Only Jesus can do that. But, Christ requires obedience and total submission. Our obedience and full submission to Him is rewarded with a new spiritual gene pool that allows us to have a divine (Christ-like) nature. Remember, those who walk in obedience to Christ are His brothers and His sisters (Mat. 12:50).

Natural brothers and sisters share genes, which is why they often physically resemble one another. The family of Christ also shares spiritual genes, which is why spiritually they also resemble one another. And, all of them resemble Christ.

There is no such thing as a homosexual gene or inherited homosexuality. YOU WERE NOT BORN HOMOSEXUAL. You were born a sinner. But, you can choose to be born all over again through faith in Christ Jesus.
