How can I help someone who has been influenced by homosexuals to think he is gay?

You can help your friend who has been influenced by Homosexuals to the point that he started to think he is gay by the following steps:

1-Show your friend that Scientific Research has proven that there is no such thing as a gay gene. This means that people are not born gay but rather they become gay by learning this behavior and choosing to become homosexual.

An example of such research: On April 14, 2003, the International Human Genome Consortium announced the successful completion of the Human Genome Project (“Human Genome Report…,” 2003, emp. added). The one piece of information that never materialized from the Human Genome Project was the identification of the so-called gay gene. Baylor University, the Max Planck Institute, the Sanger Institute, Washington University in St. Louis, and others have spent many hours of research and millions of dollars analyzing these unique chromosomes. The data allowed scientists to construct gene maps—using actual sequences from the Human Genome Project. Interestingly, neither the map for the X nor the Y chromosome contains any gay gene.

Another example of such research are those done in identical twins where one chose to be homosexual and the other heterosexual, showing that people learn to be gay and not by genetics.

2-People learn to be gay by association. Many people who associate with gay people learn to be like them and imitate what they see. So the most important thing to help reverse this situation is by choosing to associate with straight people rather than gay people. “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners” (1 Corinthians 15:33).

3-Your friend needs to see that homosexuality is a sin against God (Leviticus 18:22; 1 Kings 14:24; 15:12; Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 1 Timothy 1:8-10). While God forgives our sins, we have to acknowledge that they are wrong and seek forgiveness and grace to change.

4-While the Bible is clear that homosexuality is a sin, the good news is, like any other sin, the Lord not just forgives the repentant sinner but gives him total victory and deliverance from that sin.  God will give those that struggle with homosexuality a new heart and a new mind (2 Corinthians 5:17) . “For with God nothing shall be impossible” (Luke 1:37). And the believer will say “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
