Albert Mohler Endorses Reason over Revelation: Homosexuality is Genetic?


This article presupposes that psychology, biology, and genetics are somehow "value" neutral "science". The fact is the philosophers of science have long been saying that academic and peer authorities in scientific circles operate much like a magisterium. In short, science, like every other human endeavor is biased. It is quite unbiblical and illogical to assume that reason somehow gets the last word over Scripture. If Scripture says that the ultimate source of homosexuality is in fact rebellion against God and idolatry (Romans 1:18-32) then we ought to accept the theological explanation over and above any assertion of reason or science. Simply because sinful human beings who are born guilty of Adam's Original sin and are corrupted through and through in their human nature or being by sin does not excuse the sinful thoughts and behaviors of anyone. The root cause of all sin is not biological or genetic but the the sinful nature. To excuse homosexuality while condemning fornication and adultery is just silly. Men and women are born for fornication would be about as logical as saying someone is predisposed to same sex attraction. So what? We are all born with an attraction to sin. What makes homosexual attraction or transgendered dysfunction some "special" exception to God's law?
