Peer-Reviewed Study Adds Validity To Claims of Sexual Orientation Change
Many people who work in the field of psychology argue against the idea that a person can change their sexual orientation. But a new study published in the October edition of the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy reveals that some homosexuals who seek to change their sexual orientation may be able to do so with the help of religious mediation.
The study, conducted by psychologists Stanton L. Jones of Wheaton College and Mark A. Yarhouse of Regent University, examined changes in homosexuals who sought the help of Exodus International in trying to change their sexual orientation.
Researches tracked changes in the 98 participating subjects (72 men, 26 women) over the course of six or seven years through regular assessments....
1 Cor. 6:9-11 "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. AND SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU: BUT YE ARE WASHED, BUT YE ARE SANCTIFIED, BUT YE ARE JUSTIFIED, in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God."
Only the power of the Word of God applied by the Spirit of God can effectually call sinners away from their love for sin and grant a gratuitous love for Jesus Christ in all His offices. Enabling them to fight the good fight of faith against the temptations that come from the world, the flesh, and the devil. 1 Peter 5:6-9 "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world."

You mean return to being normal? Or conquer the sin? God would not have declared such iniquity as being abomination and unnatural if the conquest of such sin was impossible. By highlighting homosexuality as sin of the flesh, He directs the perpetrator to the solution, remove lust and be normal.
This isn't rocket science, if sexual orientation wasn't alterable, natural selection would have removed all the homosexuality out of humanity. People have sex with animals for crying out loud! This, born this way, nonsense is for the birds. People aren't born in sexuality buckets -) gay, straight or bi. How foolish
