First, all things are not equal in Gods eyes. He clearly says “I have raised some up for destruction”. The gay person is not hated by God but his sin is because like all other sin it is unacceptable in Gods eyes. It is no different than being a person who is attracted to children. And maybe even though you have never molested a child, to have that sort of relationship with a child is wrong no matter how much you try to justify it. And to have that sort of relationship with a person of the same sex is just as wrong. I know gays that realize the wrongness of their desires and they pray and they have taken up a commitment with God to be celebate unless He decides to change them. God understands desires whether they are right or wrong and He will help you with them even though they may never go away. Then I believe He will reward you for the decisions you have made. “Behold I come quickly and my reward is with me” I have things going on in my life that I simply can’t embrace and have a right relationship with God so I give them up and most importantly, I took a stand against sin. I will undoubtedly fail from time to time but He is always there to pick me up and brush me off so I can start again.
