Sin and choice

One of the great ways to look foolish is to argue a silly point that is irrelevant to your larger thesis. You are likely to be backed into a corner – you do not want to surrender the point for fear of looking like a dolt, your energies are spent far from your thesis, and you look a fool to the rest of the world. Yet this is what happens when Christians argue about whether homosexuality is something a person is born with or whether it is simply a matter of choice. The true issue to be addressed is whether homosexuality is a sin. When Christians are sidetracked, you are likely to end up with Christians looking ignorant.
