The American Psychological Association has come out with a statement reporting what we all knew anyway: there is no gay gene. Genetics plays no role in a person's sexual orientation. Homosexuals are not 'born that way.'
A publication from the American Psychological Association includes an admission that there is no "gay" gene, according to a doctor who has written about the issue on the website of National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality. NARTH deleted their original statement published since the late 1990's: "There is considerable recent evidence to suggest that biology, including genetic or inborn hormonal factors, play a significant role in a person's sexuality" and instead have revised it to state the following, according to A. Dean Byrd, the past president of NARTH:
"There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles. ..."
Byrd goes on to say: "Although there is no mention of the research that influenced this new position statement, it is clear that efforts to 'prove' that homosexuality is simply a biological fait accompli have failed," Byrd wrote. "The activist researchers themselves have reluctantly reached that conclusion. There is no gay gene. There is no simple biological pathway to homosexuality."
What does this mean, in an end times context? The bible says (which means God says) homosexuality is a sin. (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Romans 1:26-27) The bible also says that its prevalence would be so entrenched in society in the end of days that Jesus refers to them as an end times sign as the Days of Lot (when rampant homosexuality on the streets put every person walking alone in peril) Despite decades of experts attempting to normalize this behavior, including saying that its proclivity is genetic (hereby suspending the choice aspect), it is not normal and it is a choice.
Therefore, it is a choice to sin. And sinful choices - all of them - will be judged harshly by Jesus when He returns. (Romans 2)
It is good news also for the repentant gay person: they no longer need to feel that they are locked into a biological certainty. Anyone who is privately wondering about their homosexual orientation and its deplorable and empty lifestyle, can simply (and always) turn to the One who gives peace that passes all understanding. They can know they simply need to make a different choice, the best choice. They can pray for forgiveness and strength through the Holy Spirit to overcome this sin, and dwell forever in purity and joy with Him who made it all possible.
But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him. (Psalm 37:39,40)
