then it stands to reason that the initial homosexual feelings that one would want to act on, are born in them. Many people say it's not having gay feelings that are the sin...its ACTING on them.
So, people are in fact BORN gay....but when they act upon that which they are naturally inclined to be, it is a sin.
One cannot say that being gay is a sin then. It's simply the acting on those feelings, is that right?

I feel like yes acting on those feelings is a sin. Getting angry and physical with someone is also a sin. Yet studies have shown over and over again and aggressiveness is something people are born with. Same with alcoholism. You can't use the excuse "alcoholism is in their genetics" to support someone who is an alcoholic

I think we all have our own temptations. And it is not a sin to be tempted. But we can be led into sin, when we let our minds fantacize and entertain acting on the temptations. I think this verse answers that question.
"But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death." James 1:14-15. The New Living Translation says it this way, "Temptation comes from the lure of our own evil desires. These evil desires lead to evil actions, and evil actions lead to death."
Now this verse is talking about ALL types of sin. Our sins come from our own desires inside of us, and when we are enticed or when we flirt with them, it will lead us to sin. We ALL have desires that can lead us into sin.
