I’M BORN THAT WAY…..REALLY???
IT’S NOW THE STANDARD; NOW THE NORM; FOR MOST OF THE SECULAR WESTERN WORLD TO SAY, “HOMOSEXUALS, LESBIANS, TRANSGENDER PEOPLE, ARE BORN THAT WAY.”
WELL DOES SCIENCE REALLY BACK THAT POSITION UP?
YOU MAY BE SURPRISED TO HEAR IT DOES NOT!
HERE’S JUST ONE OF DOZENS OF STUDIES DONE——
Identical Twin Studies Demonstrate Homosexuality is Not Genetic - Neil Whitehead, Ph.D.
Eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia during the last two decades all arrive at the same conclusion: gays were not born that way. “At best genetics is a minor factor,” says Dr. Neil Whitehead, PhD. Whitehead worked for the New Zealand government as a scientific researcher for 24 years, then spent four years working for the United Nations and International Atomic Energy Agency. Most recently, he serves as a consultant to Japanese universities about the effects of radiation exposure. His PhD is in biochemistry and statistics.
Identical twins have the same genes or DNA. They are nurtured in equal prenatal conditions. If homosexuality is caused by genetics or prenatal conditions and one twin is gay, the co-twin should also be gay. “Because they have identical DNA, it ought to be 100%,” Dr. Whitehead notes. But the studies reveal something else. “If an identical twin has same-sex attraction the chances the co-twin has it are only about 11% for men and 14% for women.”
Because identical twins are always genetically identical, homosexuality cannot be genetically dictated. “No- one is born gay,” he notes. “The predominant things that create homosexuality in one identical twin and not in the other have to be post-birth factors.”
The predominant things that create homosexuality in one identical twin and not in the other have to be post-birth factors.
Dr. Whitehead believes same-sex attraction (SSA) is caused by “non-shared factors,” things happening to one twin but not the other, or a personal response to an event by one of the twins and not the other. For example, one twin might have exposure to pornography or sexual abuse, but not the other. One twin may interpret and respond to their family or classroom environment differently than the other. “These individual and idiosyncratic responses to random events and to common environmental factors predominate,” he says.
The first very large, reliable study of identical twins was conducted in Australia in 1991, followed by a large U.S. study about 1997. Then Australia and the U.S. conducted more twin studies in 2000, followed by several studies in Scandinavia, according to Dr. Whitehead. “Twin registers are the foundation of modern twin studies. They are now very large, and exist in many countries. A gigantic European twin register with a projected 600,000 members is being organized, but one of the largest in use is in Australia, with more than 25,000 twins on the books.”
A significant twin study among adolescents shows an even weaker genetic correlation. In 2002 Bearman and Brueckner studied tens of thousands of adolescent students in the U.S. The same-sex attraction concordance between identical twins was only 7.7% for males and 5.3% for females—lower than the 11% and 14% in the Australian study by Bailey et al conducted in 2000.
In the identical twin studies, Dr. Whitehead has been struck by how fluid and changeable sexual identity can be. “Neutral academic surveys show there is substantial change. About half of the homosexual/bisexual population (in a non-therapeutic environment) moves towards heterosexuality over a lifetime. About 3% of the present heterosexual population once firmly believed themselves to be homosexual or bisexual. Sexual orientation is not set in concrete.”
Most changes in sexual orientation are towards exclusive heterosexuality.
Even more remarkable, most of the changes occur without counseling or therapy. “These changes are not therapeutically induced, but happen ‘naturally’ in life, some very quickly,” Dr. Whitehead observes. “Most changes in sexual orientation are towards exclusive heterosexuality.”
The number of people who have changed towards exclusive heterosexuality are greater than current numbers of bisexuals and homosexuals combined. In other words, ex-gays outnumber actual gays.
The fluidity is even more pronounced among adolescents, as Bearman and Brueckner’s study demonstrated. “They found that from 16 to 17-years-old, if a person had a romantic attraction to the same sex, almost all had switched one year later. The authors were pro-gay and they commented that the only stability was among the heterosexuals, who stayed the same year after year. Adolescents are a special case—generally changing their attractions from year to year.”
Still, many misconceptions persist in the popular culture. Namely, that homosexuality is genetic – so hard- wired into one’s identity that it can’t be changed. “The academics who work in the field are not happy with the portrayals by the media on the subject,” Dr. Whitehead notes. “But they prefer to stick with their academic research and not get involved in the activist side.”
NOW WE SHALL SEE WHAT THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS INSPIRED TO WRITE ABOUT THIS SUBJECT—— ROMANS 1: 18-29
“FOR THE WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN [RIGHTEOUSNESS IS PSALM 119:172], WHO HOLD [BACK] THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. BECAUSE THAT WHICH MAY BE KNOWN OF GOD, IS MANIFESTED TO THEM; FOR GOD HAS SHOWED IT UNTO THEM. FOR THE INVISIBLE THINGS OF GOD FROM THE CREATION OF THE WORLD ARE CLEARLY SEEN, BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS THAT ARE MADE, EVEN HIS ETERNAL POWER AND GODHEAD: SO THAT THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE…… PROFESSING THEMSELVES TO BE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLS. AND CHANGED THE GLORY OF THE UNCORRUPTIBLE GOD INTO AN IMAGE MADE LIKE TO CORRUPTIBLE MAN, AND TO BIRDS, AND FOURFOOTED BEASTS, AND CREEPING THINGS. WHEREFORE GOD ALSO GAVE THEM UP TO UNCLEANESS, THROUGH THE LUSTS OF THEIR OWN HEART, TO DISHONOR THEIR OWN BODIES BETWEEN THEMSELVES…… FOR THIS CAUSE GOD GAVE THEM UP UNTO VILE AFFECTIONS; FOR EVEN THEIR WOMEN DID CHANGE THE NATURAL USE INTO THAT WHICH IS AGAINST NATURE. AND LIKEWISE ALSO THE MEN, LEAVING THE NATURAL USE OF THE WOMAN, BURNED IN THEIR LUST ONE TOWARDS ANOTHER; MEN WITH MEN WORKING THAT WHICH IS UNSEEMLY….. AND EVEN AS THEY DID NOT LIKE TO RETAIN GOD IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE, GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND, TO DO THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT GOOD. BEING FILLED WITH ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS…..”
THERE IT IS IN SIMPLE PLAIN WORDS, INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.
BEING A HOMOSEXUAL OR LESBIAN IS A CHOICE!
AND THAT CHOICE IS AGAINST NATURE.
WANTING TO BE HOMOSEXUAL OR LESBIAN, IS AGAINST NATURAL NATURE AS GOD CREATED IT. SUCH PEOPLE ARE A VERY VERY SMALL PART OF HUMANITY [THOUGH ON THE INCREASE]. THE SEXUAL DESIRE GOD CREATED, THE NATURAL DESIRE, WAS MAN AND WOMAN DESIRE EACH OTHER. ANY OTHER DESIRE IS MAN MADE.
THERE MAY BE MANY FACTORS THAT CONTRIBUTE FOR MEN TO DESIRE MEN, WOMEN TO DESIRE WOMEN, FOR SEXUAL FULFILMENT; CERTAINLY IT WOULD INCLUDE DEMONIC FORCES. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT SUCH A DESIRE IS AGAINST NATURE.
GOD HAS NEVER CREATED MALE OR FEMALE FROM CONCEPTION TO BE HOMOSEXUAL OR LESBIAN. THOSE WHO TEACH IT IS SO ARE TEACHING FALSE CORRUPT DOCTRINE AND LIES!
AND THIS IS WHY GOD WITH ANCIENT ISRAEL GAVE LAWS AGAINST THOSE WHO WOULD PRACTICE SEXUALITY WITH THE SAME SEX.
LIVING THAT SEXUALITY IS AGAINST NATURE! 99.9 PERCENT OF NATURE TELLS YOU SEXUALITY IS BETWEEN A MALE AND FEMALE. THE UN-CHRISTIAN WORLD TELLS YOU SEX WITH THE SAME SEX IS NOT NATURE; THEY DO NOT NEED THE BIBLE TO TELL THEM THIS—— NATURE TELLS YOU SEXUALITY IS BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE.
GOD HAS LAWS FOR SEX!
THE BIBLE OVER AND OVER TELLS YOU ADULTERY [SEX WITH SOMEONE OTHER THAN YOUR MARRIED MATE] IS SIN!
THE BIBLE OVER AND OVER TELLS YOU FORNICATION [SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE, OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE] IS SIN!
SOME MEN [MOSTLY THE MALE BECAUSE OF A MUCH HIGHER SEX HORMONE THAN THE FEMALE, BUT CAN ALSO BE THE FEMALE], ESPECIALLY UN-CONVERTED FROM CHRISTIANITY, DESIRE AND DO PRACTICE FORNICATION. TODAY WITH THE BIRTH-CONTROL PILL ETC. WOMEN ARE ALSO PARTAKING MORE AND MORE [MAYBE CLOSE TO THE NUMBER OF MEN], IN FORNICATION.
WHEN THE SEX HORMONE KICKS IN, IT IS LIKE A RAGING FIRE FOR TEENAGERS AND THOSE IN THEIR 20s. AS STATED FOR THE MALE, WITH A TEN TIMES HIGHER HORMONE THAN THE FEMALE, IT IS A FIRE.
IT CAN BE CONTROLLED TILL MARRIAGE; MOST DEDICATED CHRISTIANS CAN CONTROL IT TILL MARRIAGE. MAYBE SOME DO NOT, BUT USUALLY IT IS NOT A WAY OF LIFE WITH THEM. THE UN-CONVERTED WORLD DOES NOT HAVE A SPIRITUALITY TO CONTROL THEIR SEXUALITY, SO FORNICATION, IS TODAY A WAY LARGER NORM THAN IT WAS BACK IN THE 1950s WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER. SEXUAL MORALS IN THE WESTERN WORLD BACK IN THE 1950s WAS MUCH HIGHER, WAY HIGHER, THAN IT IS TODAY.
WHEN YOU HAVE NO MORAL COMPAS SEXUAL SINS OF FORNICATION AND ADULTERY, BECOME PRETTY COMMON PLACE.
AS THE MORAL COMPAS STARTED TO DISAPPEAR IN THE 1960s, AS THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL WAS INVENTED, AS MEDICINE WAS INVENTED TO COUNTER SEXUAL DISEASES, MORE AND MORE TEENS AND YOUNG PEOPLE GOT SEXUALLY ACTIVE BEFORE MARRIAGE.
AND WITH ALL THE ABOVE ADULTERY ALSO BECAME MORE COMMON PLACE.
THE FACT IS TO FOLLOW GOD’S LAWS ON SEXUALITY, CONTROL IS NEEDED!
WITH CONTROL COMES CHOICE!
YOU CAN MAKE A CHOICE TO LIVE A CERTAIN WAY!
SO THE BOTTOM LINE IS—— WHATEVER SEXUAL DESIRE YOU HAVE, BE IT TOWARDS THE OPPOSITE SEX OR SAME SEX, YOU HAVE A CHOICE.
YOU CAN CHOOSE TO LIVE, PRACTICE, AS A WAY OF LIFE, SEXUAL SIN, OR NOT PRACTICE SEXUAL SIN.
ONE WAY TO NOT PRACTICE SEXUAL SIN, IS DO NOT PUT YOURSELF IN THE LITERAL SITUATION WHERE IT IS EASY TO FALL INTO PRACTICING SEXUAL SIN.
NOW YOUR LOGICAL COMMON-SENSE MIND SHOULD BE TELLING YOU THE MANY SITUATION THAT WOULD MAKE IT EASY TO GET INTO PRACTICING SEXUAL SINS.
NO ONE IS BORN A FORNICATOR, NO ONE IS BORN AN ADULTERER; AND NO ONE IS BORN A HOMOSEXUAL OR LESBIAN.
