There is no difference between a married man who is strongly tempted by another woman and a man who is tempted sexually by another man. They both fall into the same sin called lust. Marriage brings 2 people of the opposite sex together by real love. Then follows sex when it is awaken when they both make their Covenant vows. We usually as sinners rush the relationship into marriage because of the rush of sex. The rush will always bear fruit unto selfishness which will have to be contained through the dependency on God’s power, to sustain the relationship in TRUE love.
Gay sexualism is a temptation when undue focus is put on it. And it’s still a choice as a married man has a choice in temptation with another woman! But lust does become an obsession between men as it does between a married man and a single woman. They both can deal with the lust and return to their rightful places, the man with his covenant wife and the woman with her singleness! Society is partly to blame in stigmatizing homosexuality to the point when men or women indulge in it they feel trapped in their feelings and therefore become convinced they are born that way. Many indulge in it just for the love of it and proclaim they are born that way. But it’s a lie, just as lust of its own right is a lie to say it’s a righteous thing to indulge in. But in the end lust has a terrible cost.
We cannot give special favors and classification to these people who want to be known by their sexual behavior. We must never enable perversion in society but instead assist those who want and need help in redirecting their focus from their lust for the same sex. Lust is the problem whether directed and attracted with the same sex or not. To be a real man or woman requires standing as a man or woman and resisting temptation as everyone else does. We FOCUS on the truth and not on what we need to resist with God’s supernatural help! Resisting lust has been around as long as marriage has; it’s been around for thousands of years.
Incidentally, on the subject of marrying, I wish to add that marrying another person of the opposite sex by only sexual attraction and lust clouds-out what real love could have tied the couple together. To marry because you both are good at sex proves there is no real love and patience in your love. To judge each other’s love by how good you are by doing the act of sex is a lie for both of you. And that lie will be the bedrock for a forthcoming rocky relationship. Let the truth explode your preconceptions right here, right now!
Whether or not our attractions to love evil are strong or weak it’s all the same: This is the judgment on you, me, and everyone else! That we all have the strong tendency to love deeds of evil leading to sin rather than choosing to love righteousness and wisdom! Ref: John 3:19.
* Why Christ came the first time!
John 3:17-19 “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. (18) “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (19) “This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
