Homosexuality: Is it being physically, or spiritually directed?

Posted in Wikinut>Writing>Columns & Opinions

This is a column that has been stimulated by me feeling the pain of someone not being themselves in their lives. The medium here was homosexuality. We must never stop ourselves from being who we really are.

Gay in body, mind, or spirit?

Some religious people still think that homosexuality might be a sin.

Is it really a sin though, or is this more involving an actual physical disposition of the position of the human that, then more or less, directs a person to follow this way of behaving?

What are the spiritual reasons behind it?


An homosexual orientation could be said to be a third position in humanity, in its sexual positioning.

The female and the male perhaps might be seen as being at either end of a scale, and maybe we could picture the homosexual as being somewhere in the middle, in this scenario.

This is not really true though, because really this scale of sexuality runs along the whole length of itself. Every point on it is an unique one. No point should be held up for ridicule because it is not situated close enough to some other point.

On it somewhere is a more female female for example, and at the other end, a more male male. There are of course also masculine females, and feminine males too. There is room there for everyone, and every disposition.


Along the scale, there are various positions for all people to fill, and the outer body will usually match the position that the spiritual body has chosen for you this lifetime.

Not always though.

Sometimes you will still feel strongly that you are in the wrong body. This could be a mistake on the one hand because you are resisting your soul's call for you.

On the other hand however, it might be more that you are actually ready to take on this next phase in this same body so that you essentially can then speed up the process so to speak, and live two lives in the one body.

Only a very special person can have the courage to do this, and grow past these outer limitations, by grabbing hold inwardly in order to be who they really in fact are growing towards, or who they are now already.

Here is a quote from that great American musician, singer, songwriter, and poet, Jim Morrison, (1943 to 1971).

"A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself."

It about says it all, doesn't it?

A poem on homosexuality

It may hurt you being gay, but it leads you to love, being adored.
In the end, love's fullness comes from you being yourself un-stored.
This's what's in store for you when love reaches deep to your core.
Love is really gaily given from gays to just amaze us all even more.

Homosexuals need to allow love to show them who they know they are.
They must know they're normal even in what seems an abnormal world.
They can still become their real selves in a world still mixed up.
This mix of love flies too fast past us when it's fastened to hate.

John was a silent man trying to be true to his own heart in part.
A friend of mine, he died recently, horribly disfigured from aids.
Trying to figure out why he was gay, left him in a painful disarray.
Sadly, he never accepted any real love of himself until his dying day.

Although really gay to his core old John was no more here for me now.
The knowledge needed to be him died in him trying to be someone else.
His life brought some knowing, but more hurting in his finality I saw.
Personal pride aside, John wasn't riding along on his own ride anymore.

Perhaps, he hurtled past love above himself now, fuming towards God.
John never understood that he always had the right to be his true self.
Anger and resentment at the building up of an homophobia towards him,
left him lost in limbo, feeling unloved, out lonely on his limb, always grim.

Love mints itself kindly daily anew, renewed in a new hope for tomorrow.
Love gives new scope by lending fresh love to a pain just borrowed today.
Having hope gives more scope to love mending a heart in its pained sorrow.
John died worn out through not healing the injustices of his lost youth.

Love creates different instances of itself throughout its many wanderings.
A homosexual is but another soul experiencing love in new, & old ways.
Love to be all real must appeal to itself from its own shelf of itself.
Love must experience itself through itself in itself always still itself.

Homosexuals are often crying out to God's love to be heard in this way.
These new ways remain true ways if not destroyed by other's cold emotions
Emotion is commotion, if love's still not kept above in its silent devotion.
Homosexuals really live in us all as much as any love cries lonely in itself.

To love within the silence means that love must remain as itself in you.
In the silence of itself, love never makes unnecessary noises to hurt you.
Emotional noises must not disturb love as its breathing life into yourself.
Love loved today is renewed tomorrow, because love now rejoices being itself.

most interesting but first of all we can choose which way we go in our relationships...always a free choice...then as I do know in one of my lifetimes I was gay and cruel and in this lifetime suffered in a relationship with the same person only this time he is gay. so what goes around comes around and whatever type men men women men women women it mattereth not at all in our spiritual growth...just a way to go and then those who are so bitterly against same sex involvement will come back and have to make amends for their judgements...oh oh oh...(hope you do not delete this long comment)

Well written. With more and more evidence that gender is a chemical function of the brain and not solely directed by reproductive anatomy, all these possibilities exist and then some. I like your approach.

that's alright Carolina.

I was just hinting here that sometimes(perhaps all times) it is our soul that has placed us onto this path as being gay this time around in this lifetime.

As the physical being we need to contact our higher self to receive an explanation about why and who we really are this time around, if we are interested to do this like I am, it really helps us to live our life here with more understanding and meaning I feel.

There is no "might be" about it, homosexuality is a sin, it's an abomination in the sight of God and I could quote you many scriptures to back that up. There is no third position in mankind, God created a man (Adam) and a woman (Eve) and God told them to mate and reproduce. No where in the Holy Scriptures will you find God ordaining male - male, or female - female relationships.

I wonder how you would explain homosexuality in animals.

I am just trying to understand it and why it occurs.

dear spirited ..
I confess I don't have all the answers ...but I do have a compassionate and loving Saviour ...who willingly gave His own life and a sacrifice ( replacement ) for All mankind , and for ALL our sins .
We are all born into sin , because of the fall from grace by Adam and Eve , but God loves us so much He had a plan to redeem us from Satan's grip ...Hence Jesus paid the price for us ...
God hates... adultery , greed , idolatry , hate , sodomy , fornication , lies, and every other form of sin imaginable ...BUT HE Loves mankind ..and it is not His will that any perish , but that we should all receive His forgiveness and a new , clean heart ...washed of our past and going forward , with the help of the Holy Spirit in those who are Born-Again ...until we reach Eternity and home .
This is my stand on such matters ..It is not judgemental , just truth based on a forgiven heart and God's own words .
Many blessings to you my friend .

A controversial subject indeed!

Thanks for your contributions Stella

To me a sin is anything that keeps you from loving. It's that simple.

A man can love another man.

I leave it up to God to judge whatever else might take place between them.

I agree though lust is never love.

God hates sin , dear Carolina ...but He doesn't Hate sinners ...
He loves us enough to pay the ultimate price to save us from Hell and destruction ...
Would any of us lay down our lives for our enemies ? .. I think not ..
But , Jesus did that for us .' While we were yet sinners , Christ died for us .
That is Agape love ...God's love for all , if we receive it .
Many do , but sadly many don't .
Blessings

God never hates I think, (in the sense of stopping loving us) but he does hurt in some way when he sees his children separated from him by their own choice or by their thoughts and ways of behaving. God rejoices when such a soul returns to him again.

Some people believe that when they lust after another person , whether it be opposite gender or the same , that they are truly LOVING ... whereas God says that all forms of fornication , lust and adultery are sins, spirited ..and He is the ultimate Judge ...so who are we to argue with Him or His Word my friend ?

I cannot believe that anyone can say God Hates...it is impossible and only reflects what so called bible and christianity teaches...hate, punishment, judgement non of which the Lord Jesus taught...it is the perversion of those who wield power through shaking a bible stick in the air...I am speechless that anyone can say God Hates...

For someone who is speechless, CN, you sure can run your mouth spewing nonsense--I think you do it just to hear yourself talk. Typical for someone who apparently read the Bible or understand what God's Holy Word teaches.

God is love, even the bible says that. It is impossible for God to hate as much as it is impossible for him to fear.

Perfect love has no room for either hate nor fear within itself

I am glad that there are things that God hates my friends ...because that frees me to hate them with a passion also ...
I hate cruelty and torture in every form to mankind or animals ..
I hate child abuse in every degree of the word .
I hate bullying , spite and slander ..
I hate what drugs and excessive alcohol abuse does to lives .
I hate dictatorship, dominant control , and evil manipulation of people over the lives of others .
My list could go on ...and on ..
So let's be real .
We are in a fallen , sinful world ...living alongside fallen and sinful people , and if it wasn't for God's Love , Grace and mercy ...we would all be consumed .. so , let us accept that God is love , but He hates evil and one day He will judge this world for all the evil committed in it ...
We best make sure our sins are forgiven , and by God's grace we are living as best we can ,( with His help ) until we leave this planet behind .
Heaven is real and so is Hell..
I hope I see you all in Heaven my friends
Love Stella ><

and yet the bible says you will not make it into heaven if you are still hating. Only those who are perfect in love, and love perfectly will make it, "Be ye therefore perfect even as God is perfect," Jesus said

Perfect love is just the energy of love loving. God does not hate, I believe, because there is no opposites in him. Duality, splitting of negative and positive only exists here on earth. Hate is an energy that destroys, it doesn't build up. God's plan is for perfect love to stay perfect, I believe any hate he leaves up to sinners to do, I feel...

You can pick any scripture and use it out of context to prove anything you want to prove, spirited. Stella is right and you are wrong, and if you really believe you are right, then you are "dead wrong." You need to get down on your knees and ask God for his forgives, repent of your sins, and make Jesus the Lord of your life. Please don't tell me that you are a born again Christian, spirited, because I know that you aren't born again because if you truly were you wouldn't write things contrary to God's Holy Word. I'll pray for your salvation, spirited.

Nobody has the correct interpretation of scripture. Nobody owns it. Only a personal relationship with Jesus can reveal its meaning in our minds, I believe.

You have your own personal relationship with him Jerry, and I respect that, I also have mine.

Jesus was once tempted by the devil in the desert

His answer to this type of attempted poisoning of him was simply not to let it bite him, or enter him. Let the poison stay where it is, it then affects only the person who has it in them.

What you write doesn't reflect or demonstrate that relationship, spirited. The Holy Spirit leads a believer into the right interpretation of the scriptures if the reader truly believes in the Lord Jesus Christ and has Him dwelling in their heart.

I cannot judge, nor point the finger. I know that long before puberty came along I knew it was the little girls who floated my boat. I suspect it is like that for us all. As for sin, are we not all sinners?

Good point Utah, we are all indeed sinners in a way, especially when we judge others from something that prevents us from loving them just as they are.

You are as gay as you want to be. Fact is the rectum is not a sex organ, its a waste removal part and not with an inward movement.
Sadly people use this for sexual fantasies and try to make it to gayism. Fact is that there is just male and female created on this planet.
The gay orientation is but a choice.
Honestly it causes a high risk for HIV and the truth is that it is very different from norms of regular reality and not something that is practiced based on the heavens law.

With my full respects to you spirited and please accept that I mean no offence to you personally whatsoever in saying this...I truly think the subject of homosexuality should be avoided at all costs on this site.. because the comments ALWAYS turn into a war of words and it just becomes ugly.

thanks Mariah,

a war of words is better than a war with real weapons, but if God is love and I believe he is, nobody should fight with words in a war-like way. We need to build up not cut down.

Yes you are right spirited and my concern is that people on the site could be emotionally wounded by harsh comments resulting from the controversy that the subject of homosexuality brings to the surface here.. it's always the same result when posts of this nature are published, it becomes heated, very unpleasant and personal, therefore I don;t think it serves any favourable purpose and for that reason, I think it's best avoided.
I hope you understand my intentions are well meaning in saying this spirited.

"A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself." What a great quote! And on the other hand to be a friend you should accept your friend the way they are regardless of sexual orientation. It's not my place to judge nor any other human!

It is easy to love a friend , spirited ...most people do that
Loving an enemy , or even liking them takes a bit more graciousness .
That's when the rubber meets the road my friend .
I have commented twice more higher up today .
God bless you all with His peace.

yes, love your enemies, but hate the crime or at least do not agree that sin is right or that the crime was justified. I agree with the sentiment, it's just a difference in interpretation of the word hate.

Thanks Stella you have some strong opinions about all of this. God bless you for sticking with what you believe.

When Cain killed his brother Abel , spirited ...we are told that sin was standing at the door ...and the sin talked of here was the kind of hatred that would result in murder if not curtailed .
That is the kind of hatred God speaks of ...the kind that is murderous in intent .
That is of the devil , and in him there is no love .
He came to Kill, steal and destroy ...and he is still doing just that through people who do not have the abundant life of Jesus in their hearts .John 10 v 10.
We have to be careful what we teach others my friend , as we will be judged accordingly .
God bless you with His peace and understanding today .
