First and foremost, Mr. Jacques, in answer to your plea for help, I (or anyone else, for that matter) cannot possibly help
you; only God can, and
He can only help as you are willing to submit to His Will and obey.  it appears to me (considering
your background and knowledge of scripture,) you are not willing.  Instead you are reaching out to other men, who in the
final analysis, can only tell you what you appear to have heard already and, therefore (to a degree) know.  No Christian
teacher, minister, servant, or lay person of any understanding and discernment will ever attempt to do more or less than to
help you directly form and through the Word of the Living God, Yahweh (Jehovah) Elohim, Hayah.  It is He with whom you
have to come to terms.  You cannot bypass or circumvent His Will as expressed in His written Word.

Nonetheless, forsake of putting together another article for our websites, which may in the end prove beneficial to someone
else, let us entertain these notions of yours.

First let’s list your claims:

1)        you are a married man (I shall assume, to a woman), “…I believe I am gay.”
2)        You are attracted to men by nature
3)        You accuse of God creating you this way, and you wish to know why
4)        You are well aware of the biblical teaching that all such men ( and women) are an “abomination” in the Eyes of the
Almighty
5)        You accuse God of giving you these desires for “men”, and you wonder why, if He sees you as abhorrent (and He
does!)
6)        You were brought up in a “Christian” home (which as a certain way of not meaning a whole heck of a lot in today’s
terms), in South Africa
7)        You know and you love God
8)        You are confused and want guidance
9)        You do “…not want this feelings” (great!  That at least is a step in the right direction.)

Gay Men/Gay Women:
None created by God

Please note up front that God did not create you homosexual.  You should therefore, be careful of making accusation such
that He gave you your desires for other men.  God cannot Himself be tempted to do evil, nor will He ever tempt any man to do
evil or, to go against the grain of His own word (
James 1).   Rather, as you know, God created the basis only for
monogamous, heterosexual, relations
:  a man is to leave his own father and mother and join with his wife (a woman), so
as to form what in God’s Eyes, amounts to one complete human being, although they are in fact two separate individuals.  
The reason for this, I am sure you realize, is because when God first created man—Adam, the father of all humanity—He did
so by packing all the ingredients into one body.  That is, this Adam appears to have had all the parts of a woman in his own
body, originally (including the
DNA coding)—i.e., everything necessary to bring about the human race was within himself
(thus, as bizarre as it sounds, it seems he was both male and female, simultaneously).  However, God decided that this should
not be.  The two sides should be separate (If this sounds like an after thought, it is not.  Remember, God planned and
engineered all this before He ever constructed the first particle, upon which He then built the entire universe.  Thus, this
surreal route through Adam to get to, i.e., to create the woman was part of the game play from the very beginning).  Hence,
during the deep slumber put upon him, Jehovah removed that side or that part which was female, and a rib, and constructed
the woman Eve.  Please note two things:  
1) God did not start from scratch, that is, He did not stoop down and pick up a
fresh fist full of dirt, over which He in a chant shouted “presto whipto” in order to fashion the helper fit for Adam, nor
2) did
He ferret out of Adam, two different versions of maleness (shall we say), to be unionized by sexual relationships; that is, He
did not make a “buddy”, or another man to fill the bill in recognition of or, in terms of what He knew Adam lacked (which is
probably among the best of indicators that men on men and female to female relationships are by no means kosher, in His
Eyes—they are not normative, inasmuch as they are not meant to be).  Rather, for and from the one man He created initially,
He, with the parts He removed, created one woman (made from him, different; not the same), following which creation
He
issued a declaration
:  the union of these two, a male and a female individual, is how the one original body I built will once
again be realized as one flesh.  Please observe that
there was and is no alternative solution to God’s resolution to the
relationship dilemma.  The companionship expectations, sexual desires, of both were to be gratified by persons of the opposite
sex.  
God therefore created a situation such that a man’s attraction and affection demands require satisfaction from a
woman, and vice versa, a woman’s craving for affection and her need for sexual gratification must be met by a man.  
Consider
Genesis 1:26-31; 2:19-25:  1) God created two similar, yet entirely different individuals from one, 2) in bestowal of
blessing, He issued an injunction to them—the male and the female—enjoining that
they should enjoy intimate interaction so
that they could produce more like themselves (not so that they each could subsequently have same-sex partners, but so that
the reproductive process could continue until the earth was fully populated (a feat obviously in no wise attainable through
same sex unions); in so many words, their male/female actions and interactions were to set the example or tone for all their
offspring),
3) God observed and examined thoroughly everything that He had made and determined that it was “very
good”
(in every sense of the word), just the way that all was made—which of course, includes male/female relationships.  

Gay Men/Gay Women
Homosexuality:
Dangerous living; the only cleanser:  abstinence or death

It is for these reasons, then, Jacques, that your assertion and charge such that God created you gay, and that He gave
you your desires for other men, is
wrong, biblically unsustainable, and just plain vile.  In light of His express prohibition
as stated in the Law of Moses,
God is no more responsible for the desires of homosexuals who long for same sex
relationships
than He is for the desires of murderers (of whatever genre) to commit murder, or thieves to commit theft, or
of adulterers/fornicators to commit adultery or fornication, etc., etc., and so on and so forth—you get the picture.  Moreover,
in that and to the degree you claim that you love Him, and yet accuse Him of making you what you are and of giving you
those desires for men, to the same degree
you actually make Him a Liar!  Observe that in Leviticus 18:22; 20:13 and in
Deuteronomy 23:17-18, which spell out and sum up God’s attitude toward this wickedness, we have not just a portrayal
of a practice that He finds loathsome
, a detestable thing, abhorrent or disgusting, but, notice that God also demonstrates
that disgust by the issuance of
a prescription for dealing with homosexuality:  any man (or woman) known for having
sexual relations with another of the same sex, as when one does so with a woman, is to be served the same
capital
punishment
meted out for murder, and adultery, and for other sins calling for this drastic measure (such as male or female
sex with animals)—
the homosexual or lesbian was to be put to death; period!  This same theme was played out almost
450 years earlier when God destroyed
Sodom, Gomorrah and three of their neighboring cities, indicating or suggesting that
while this evil had begun perhaps in one of the cities, it had spread and was no doubt in danger of spreading beyond that locale
and, of course, along with it and its filth, the disease of the aids virus as well.  Interestingly, having settled in the Land of
promise, and having grown fat with complacency and sin, certain cities of the old Israelis also lapsed into this same base sin
of
sexual degradation and debauchery (most likely picked up in part from the obnoxious, depraved practices of the
remainder of
the seven nations they were commissioned to demolish, upon entering the Holy Land, inasmuch as they too
were hated by God for among other things, homosexuality), in which case God responded with the same remedy employed at
the site of
the five cities of the plains of Jordan:  He had the Jews and their 11 brothers destroy them, to thwart and
stop the spread of
homosexual deviancy.  Certain other peoples and powerful cultures who flourished in the distant past (not
knowing God) are also now known to have engaged freely in this practice.  Interestingly, they are either no longer with us, or,
they are only here in some capacity such that they are barely, if at all recognizable.  No doubt, their demise too is per the Hand
and Will of the Almighty Himself.  

Side Bar
[
Wondering why God needed to use so drastic a measure to quell the homosexual crisis?  First and foremost, He hates it,
He cannot stand the thought of it, given that it goes against the grain of His original plan for mankind, i.e.,
He didn’t create
gays
, but consider:  In 1981, the aids virus was discovered. By 1999, 90% of all cases were linked to homosexual men and
drug users who administer highs using needles (needles, needless to say, are not a “cause” of the virus, being as they are only
one method of transfer). It is now a recognized fact however that,
this deadly virus for which there is, even in these
modern times,
no cure, does not stay where it started (it is also said to be known for mutation, which suggests that it has
been known to build up immunity to all known potential cures).  While the number of gay men in any given community may
be relatively small overall, even a minor segment of that infected class who hide their shame under the skirts of unsuspecting
wives and girlfriends—who in turn being affected by their gay lovers’ dangerous choices, pass that infection on by way of
additional partners (promiscuously, or through marriage), breast feeding, intravenous drug use, etc.—can trigger a kind of
rough, jagged exponential increase of an “outbreak” that can in time have horrific consequences.  Thus it is, it is said, that 60-
70% of HIV cases today occur among heterosexuals (its roots, birth place however, is still the homosexual male).  
The
disease is on the move.
 What began as a consequence male on male sexual intercourse—and while its transmission rate is
high in infected normal vaginal sex cases—is ten times more likely to be transmitted sex through acts among men involved or
intimate anally.  

Furthermore, Jacques, one need only look at
the Africa continent, aids epidemic capital of the world (?), to see in modern
times, in living color, the devastating consequences of not controlling and eliminating deviant sexual behavior.  25 million+ of
the worlds estimated 45 million+ carriers are believed to live there, with most living in
South Africa.  13 million Africans have
already had their lives snuffed out by the disease.  Among nations, South Africa was the frontrunner, until it was recognized
that
India with an estimated 5.1 million infected souls, being “out of control” and in grave danger of getting only worst (and
that quite rapidly), has caught and passed them.  Thanks to philosophical and ideological assumptions and such which present
barriers to identification, education and treatment, in no case is either, or, similar situations expected to get better any time
soon.  Thus one can well understand, the urgent need for radical containment during those early years of man, when today’s
knowledge, scientific methods, analysis and tools were altogether unavailable, and the world’s population in general as well as
that of local communities was no where near as robust as today’s.  Directly, or indirectly, entire communities could have been
wiped out by an epidemic aids out break.  In addition, millions upon millions are expected to die in the coming days and years
because of the apathy and lethargic of these two nations alone (needless to say, if you were born and raised in South Africa,
you then know very well the situation there)
.]  

Gay Men/Gay Women in Heaven:
All invited; None will be welcomed in

Moving on then (to further enlarge upon your question as to whether gays have a place in heaven), knowing and
understanding as we do that
God’s attitude, distaste, and disdain for the gay lifestyle expressed and dramatized in the
Old Testament
(that men the world over, throughout the millennia might know)—while never expressed with the same
drama in the New—let us bear firmly in mind that His OT Mindset is not the lest bit abated in the New Testament.  He Who
wielded the Finger, engraving the OT Laws written in stone—God in Spirit—is the same Individual Who—having lived and
played out a Life in the physical among men, then—laid down that Life in flesh to establish His New Covenant, written in His
Blood.  This same Jesus, sir, being resurrected, ascended, reassigned, reaffirmed and re-established in His former role as God,
by God the Father—albeit, while the Father and the Holy Spirit are Spirits in Being, He being Eternal Flesh and Bone—would
have us not arrive at
the Judgment ignorant of the fact that no gay man or lesbian woman will ever enter into the
Kingdom of our God
.  That is, if you will not heed the call to a change of heart, to think differently about your gay
inclinations, and to turn away there from (i.e., repent), then you need not expect to be among the saints bowing, and throwing
crowns at
the Feet of the One seated as Judge at the Bema celebration, and awards ceremony.  Rather, while He will
not slay any homosexual out right today, Jesus Himself has given assurance that such wickedness and rebellion—together
with all other forms of sin, rebellion and rejection of God—will be dealt with at
the Great White Throne Judgment,
immediately following
His Millennial Reign over a still Christ rejecting, cantankerous, but temporarily, compulsively,
submissive mankind
[(we the risen, resurrected saints, at His side!  How sad, is it not, that there are actually professing
Christians—ministers even
—who do not believe that there will be such a Reign, or an after life, choosing rather to think
that this life is all that there is!  Even more sad when there is mounting scientific evidence in support of the Word which says
this world cannot possibly continue (consider what might be thought of as warning signs:  Greenhouse Effect; Global
warning; Ozone depletion; El Ninio).  The more man utilizes and maximizes the potential of his environment, the greater the
depletion of key components necessary for our safe survival here, or so it seems—in addition to his own prevailing, mounting
and increasingly difficult to contain potential for self-annihilation.  One way or the other, this world will end, even as t
he “life
after” in hell
, with all its guests  (demonic and human; all practicing, non-repentant homosexuals—male or female—and
heterosexuals; all “Christians” who chose the way of the world over God’s), will continue forever.)

Gay Men/Gay Women:
There is Hope, even for one so loathsome

In light of the foregoing then, you can well understand, can you not Jacques, how your assertion that you both “know God
and I love Him!” is ludicrous
, at best, given that you obviously do not know Him, you definitely do not understand His
Word and you do, like so many others, wantonly and randomly disregard same in deference for your own fleshly appetites, as
at the same time you twist and distort other scriptures out of context, to make them fit your perverted, aids-infested, filthy
desires/lifestyle (let me hasten to interject here that while you have not specifically stated that you are actively involved in any
sexual relationship, with another man, or with other men, it is strongly inferred in one of your questions in your first e-mail.  
For this reason, I have been going on the assumption that you are in fact intimate with men, as well as with your wife.).

You “…do not want this feelings!”, you say, my friend?  You want “…guidance…” over the “…confusion…” you now
feel?  You insist that you “
…love God…”?  Well, all I can say, or do is repeat what you doubtless already know:  insofar as
you should realize by now that you really do not know Him,
get to know Him, obey his call to repentance, accept His
generous offer of forgiveness
and, assuming there is at least some love lost between you and your wife, continue to love
her and cherish her (and for Pete’s sake, for God’s sake!, c
onsider well the consequences of living a dual life, and the
possibility of destroying that of your wife and family—presupposing ya’ll, somehow, have kids—should you contract
the HIV and AIDS viruses and pass those on to you family—the assumption here being that perhaps you haven’t
already
.  It could easily happen.  I remember reading in the papers some time ago, when I lived in the city of Chicago, IL,
here in the US, about
a very young family of three, all dying because of the AIDS virus.  While no mention was made as to
how it was contracted, the possibility of sexual impropriety was definitely not ruled out.  So
think, Jacques!  Give your
family a chance.).  If indeed you do “love” the Lord, then submit to His authority and to His command:  repent!  While His
love for you is no greater than it is for me or anyone else, and
while gays of either genre are not some special hardship
case requiring special treatment
or handling along the road to salvation, the fact remains, Christ died for you just as He did
for all non-gays.  
Whatever demands have been placed upon us, He expects of youno more, no less.  Remember the
Lord Jesus’ admonition in
Revelation 21:7, 8 & 27; 22:15, where three times—for stress, and to emphasize the urgency--He
repeats a laundry list of the types of people who will not ever enter the Kingdom of Heaven.  Among that listing of persons—
a)
who will be thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, b) whose names will not appear on the Lambs Scroll of Life, and c) who
will be denied access to the Tree of Life—is a group referred to variously as
1)the disgusting, detestable, abhorred
ones
”, those guilty of 2)making abomination” (a most likely reference to anything that garners and controls ones
appetites, attention, and affections—including sexual perversion—on a level belonging only to God, more so than simply or
strictly to gays), and,
3)dogs” (men ungodly to the point of extremity, having minds and habits dedicated to impurity &
immorality to the lowest levels):  knowing well that
the Jesus Christ of the New Testament is the God of the Old (and
that, but for His physical condition now, He has not changed), one should have no trouble seeing in these designations those
guilty of all manner of sexual perversions, including that of homosexuality and lesbianism.  To reiterate, you will not be
allowed into the presence of God the Almighty, as such, having lived life unrepentantly, under either banner.  Paul the apostle
cites a similar list in
Romans 13:13, following which (:14) he urges his readers to submit themselves and their minds to
the authority and control of the Lord Jesus Christ
.  In another listing of the same sort (I Corinthians 6:9 & 10), this
same Paul offers the reassurance that no unjust persons (unrighteousness) of any kind will ever be welcomed into the
Kingdom of God, including the
effeminate (culpable, reprehensible “soft” men having unseemly female characteristics and
mannerisms) and
the sodomite (homosexual:  men or women desiring and seeking out same sex sexual partners and
companionships).  Moreover, Paul is careful to note that some of them, the Corinthians, were formerly persons of this sort.

So, there you be, Jacques!  If “
guidance” and a way out of your clouds of “confusion” are truly what you crave, then be
assured, it
“don’t git no better’n” the Word of the Living God.  Clearly, He did not make you homosexual, nor did He give
you your thirst for other male sex companionships or, you gay tendencies.  
Are gays bound for an eternity in hell fire and
sulfur?
 You bet they are!  Can they be saved?  No doubt about it!  Just follow exactly the same protocol laid out for all of
us who have sinned and fallen short of the glory of the God who Lives, and who really does Exist:  repent (have and exercise
a change of heart; turn away from that lifestyle; God commands it of all men—
Acts 17:30, 31), believe, put all your faith,
trust and confidence on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be forgiven, and saved; washed from the stain of all your sin by
His precious blood, shed on behalf of all mankind.  To as many as will exercise this faith, this trust, this confidence, to the
same He will give the right to be called sons of God.  For, His love for the all men is great and so strong, that He gave the only
Son He ever had so that all who will believe in Him will not perish (in eternal hellish fire), as rather they will be rewarded with
eternal life in Heaven in the presence of Almighty God, the Lamb of a Son, and all the holy angels (
John 1:12, 29; 3:16).  We
can all now be liberated from the condemnation to which the unbelieving world is already hopelessly consigned (
John 16:17-
19; Romans 8:1
).  Being as God is not a respecter of persons, anyone believing (including homosexuals, as we just saw) in
the Name of the Man from Galilee can and will granted remission of his sins (
Acts 10:34 & 43).  Trusting confidently in
His Name for the forgiveness of all wrongs clears the way for justification
(a declaration that one is now righteous in the
Fathers Eyes)
through faith from everything (inclusive of sexual perversity and homosexuality) from which he could not
have been justified otherwise
; not even by the Law of Moses.

I realize I have been a bit “long winded”, Jacques, but trust me, I am ordinarily “a man of few words”.  This, however, is a
subject I thought to be of utmost importance—and I am certain, it is near and dear to the Heart of the Father—hence, in my
estimation, it needed to be given thorough treatment.  Let me know if it is at all beneficial to you, will you?  Thanks.

In Service to Him Whose Blood bought remission of sins for all (including repentant gays/lesbians),
