God’s Greatest Gift?

Q

I was wondering your thoughts and feelings on Apple’s CEO coming out as being gay and saying it was the greatest gift God could give.

A

In an essay published by Bloomberg Businessweek Tom Cook, Apple’s CEO, said, ” I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.”

It’s clear that the Bible calls homosexuality a sin in both the Old (Leviticus 18:22) and New (Romans 1:26-27) Testaments. All sins came into the world because of man’s disobedience (Romans 5:12), not because God gave them to us. And if you know how God feels about sin, you know He wouldn’t give anyone a sin as a gift.

The gift God gave us is a pardon from the penalty for our sins, purchased with the blood of His son, and available to all who ask (Matt. 7:7-8).
