Can a gay person become a straight Christians?
Becket lived a happy gay life and there was no guilt until he saw a Bible, but somewhat as an enemy. Similarly, Jackie liked girls at age 5. At 19, she had her first girlfriend, until Romans 1:26 convicted her. Likewise, Rachel traded her lesbian relationship after googling Jesus. Living a straight life today, Becket, Jackie, and Rachel still have same-sex attraction.
“A lot of how we talk about sexuality doesn’t come from scriptures but from stories,” says Jackie Perry. Gay homosexuals and lesbians are alienated because many Christians say homosexuals will go to hell. They insist on conversion, but can the Bible make you straight?

Being tempted is not (yet) sin
Before sin is a temptation (James 1:13-15). If you give in, the penalty is death (Romans 6:23). Jesus became a man and He was tempted on all sides, yet He did not sin (John 8:11). Jesus overcame sin as a man (John 16:33). Consequently, we too can overcome “sexual sin” if our mind is set on things of God (Colossians 3:2), and it begins with “repentance.”
True meaning of repentance
Repentance has been misunderstood as becoming “sinless.” Christians or not, we still sin and are saved because of what Jesus did, not on our own merits (Ephesians 2:8-9). Furthermore, repentance (to sin) comes from the Greek word “Metanoia” that literally means “change of mind”. This kind of repentance is not about regret or shame; it is making a decision to turn around and face a new direction towards Christ. In other words, it is having a new mindset.

Jesus said, “sin no more”
A huge crowd wanted to condemn Mary Magdalene because her sin was prostitution. Jesus said, “Didn’t even one of them condemn you? Neither do I. Go and sin no more” (John 8:11). The issue goes beyond sin itself. Like Magdalene, Jesus didn’t dwell much on her immoral behavior but on “sexual purity.” In fact, God will remember our sins no more (Hebrews 8:12). Jesus calls you to be holy because we were created in Him and through Him. (Colossians 1:16)
