No Christian Church should accept Gays. As it is wrong and they are ednorsing it.....you dont hate speech them as the bible tells you not too. You treat them Kindly like any other human being , however , you dont endorse their actions. You tell them it is wrong , you dont say its a Gift from God ...because it isnt.
e Bible tells us everything we need to know about God. If you read the Bible...you know our God.

It's not implied. It's a scientifically proven fact that gender attraction preference is influenced by genetics, hormones, and environment. It can be disputed, but you'd be going against empirical data that says otherwise. I'd recommend having your own data to back up your argument if you want to have a logical debate about it. I've reference the studies in previous posts if you're interested in reading through them.
A preference does not mean that you are locked into a specific sexual ID though. You can go against your preference. The right/left hand argument applies here. If you want to try using your non-preferred hand, then you absolutely can choose to do so, but it won't feel natural and it may take a lot of practice to become dextrous with that non-preferred hand. THAT is a genetic pre-disposed preference as well. You don't LEARN to use the hand you do because you were taught that way. You use it because you preferred it and it was easier. It felt natural when you put a crayon (or for some of us, chalk), in that hand and you went that direction. Humans are very good at choosing the path of least resistance. We're geared to try to make our lives easier. Sometimes we go against that, but it's relatively rare.

You are very perverted, disgusting and spiritually dead.
Just because our Bible doesnt bend to your idea of how things were created , doesnt mean the bible is wrong , you could be just as wrong as the Bible. If you are wrong , im sure you know what the Bible says about that.
Tell me in which ways my Bible is flawed? Ill correct your view.
And i can tell your heavily into the Occult
