The Blueprint for human sexuality

Genesis 1:27,31 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.

Although religious homosexuals argue that God "created" or "made" them "gay", the Creator's blueprint and intention sharply disagree. Genesis (which means beginning) clearly reveals, without question, that God did not "create" homosexual relationships. God created people and those two people were created in His image. God's image is holy whereas sexual immorality is the image of the unholy. Nothing in scripture indicates, alludes to, or remotely suggests that God created anything other than what is mentioned in the beginning. In the beginning God created a man and a woman, encouraged that man and woman to enter into a sexual relationship and declared that it was "good".

Sin orientation
I'm sure you've heard it before. "Sexual orientations" can't be changed. What you may not know is that the sexual orientation theory is built on the false premise that one is born with an unchangeable desire for one or the other sex. Or any type of sex. Or no sex. Or both sexes. This is highly problematic even from a logical standpoint. Of course, "professionals" in the mental health fields aided this theory by removing homosexuality from the DSM in 1973 under heavy intimidation from gay activists, and without any shred of scientific evidence to justify removing it. It was all an emotional steam roller.
However, biblically speaking, God created one orientation. The man was oriented towards the woman. Any other so named orientation is an acquired one due to that aforementioned fallen nature. To be clear, anything except the original orientation is not of God. Its a phony.

I've fallen, how do I get up?
Then where does homosexuality come from you may ask? Homosexuality as well as other forms of deviant sexual conduct are a result of the fallen nature of man. Fallen points to the fact that man's sin caused him to "fall" from his original state of holiness and relationship with God. Out of this state of fallen human existence comes rebellion and deviation from the Creator's intent for his creation. This is why God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn it, but to save it. This has become known as the "plan of salvation". God actually had a plan before there was a problem. Salvation is free to man, but came with an immeasurable cost to God's son. Salvation (redeeming from an unusable state) requires admission of one's sins to God and acceptance of the sacrifice of Christ as the "payment" for those sins.

When homosexuals refuse to acknowledge that their sexual proclivities are sinful, they tragically exclude themselves from Christ's otherwise inclusive "whosoever will" invitation. Jesus' powerful invitation is followed by a stunning pronouncement to those who reject the conditions of salvation offered exclusively by Him.

John 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

Accept Christ, repent of your sins and you are forgiven.
Reject Christ, refuse repentance and you are condemned.
