    God made them with free-will as He did Adam and Eve. When Eve and Adam sinned, sin nature became something that was passed down the line. So if you want to say they are born with a sin nature, then yes I will give you that, but they can choose to not live in sin as well. However, if you intentionally live in sin, you cannot be saved as there is no repentence.

    After reading the Bible, I tend to think people who use the phrase "not according to the Bible" are full of crap. It is inconsistent within itself. It was not meant to be a literalistic rulebook and the people who try to use it that way inevitably embarrass themselves because they don't live by the underlying themes but they expect everyone else to live up to their particular interpretation of the specific parts they feel are important. I can honestly say I love the book because it brings out the glorious absurdity of people judging people for being people while at the same time trying to claim they are a better type of people.

    Homosexuality is not listed as a sin in the bible. Jesus did love the downcast and persecuted. He'd more likely march in a Pride parade than protest gay marriage.

    Then you clearly don't understand the Bible.

    Actually it is called an abomination.

    Is it OK to be gay so long as you remain closeted and celibate?
    or are gays condemned regardless of what they do with their sexual orientation?

    Just wondering.
