Default Born that way

Some say people who are attracted to people of the same gender are born that way and can not help it. The truth is whatever our gender preference we are born with sin as part of our nature whether it manifests as lust, violence, lies, hate, meanness, wanting what is not ours, addictions, self centeredness, gossip, wanting to see our enemies get "what they have coming to them", etc. the only way any of this changes is to be born again by receiving the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us on the cross and letting His blood cleanse us and make us new. For some people that new birth means an immediate change, Clean talk instead of cuss words, gentleness instead of violence, loving those who have hurt them instead of wanting to see them "get it", purity instead of lust for whichever gender, truth instead of lies. For other people the changes have to work from the inside out but if the person has really been reborn and now desires to please God because they love Him not because someone says they have to do/not do things the change will come.
