“They do not choose their homosexual condition;for the most of them it a trial.”

This statement is saying, correct me if I’m wrong, that God makes humans (not all of them, a few of them) to be homosexuals, is it not? I believe that God gives us our own individual trials, and yes, persons with homosexual tendencies should be “accepted with respect,compassion,and sensitivity.” But I think it is very contrary to say ‘God gave me the trial of homosexuality, therefore it must be okay’, rather, ‘maybe God gave me this trial of homosexuality so that I can witness the truth to them (John 14:6), and bring other homosexuals close to Christ’. Jesus says it best in Matthew 28:19-20a, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.” My husband has a very close friend at his college who has battled with homosexuality his whole life (still questioning it to this day). But, at the end of the day, my husband’s friend and every, single, one of us must ask ourselves (not just with homosexuality, with everything), ‘are the actions I do on a daily basis, not only pleasing to God, but reflecting God’s glory and making other people thirsty and hungry for Christ?” THAT, my friends, is the ultimate question.
