We can control behavior

    Recent letters published in this paper should alarm us that so many believe we have no control over our behavior.
    Specifically, the belief has been expressed that God designed some people to be attracted to members of the same sex. Yet, the same God has given us a Bible which clearly condemns all sexual relations outside of marriage, including homosexuality.
    We should not be misled to think that God has not given us the freedom to choose our behavior. We are what we choose to be. Choice becomes a disastrous curse if we make the wrong choice.
    I do not suggest that we should not love those who have chosen to be sinful. However, we must not accept homosexual behavior, or we become guilty of paving the road that is leading to their destruction.
