|By the grace of God|
|“I am not what I ought to be. I’m not what I want to be. I’m not what I hope to be in another world. But still I am not what I once used to be and by the grace of God I am what I am.”
— David Upton quoting John Newton
David Upton testifies to being saved from a homosexual lifestyle that consumed his life for 27 years. In his current view, the real love, the real joy, and the real contentment can only be found in being made right with God through Christ, through Christ’s work on the Cross. He also seriously questions whether someone can be born a homosexual and suggests that anyone who thinks homosexuality is normal should examine himself and realize that what one feels as normal is really the sinful pleasure that one is enjoying. All these sinful desires can be taken away by Christ who can make person a new creature with new desires. Sin is pleasurable for a season but eventually that season ends and person remains without hope and going to pay for that sin.
