Given the consequences of the Fall and the effects of human sin, we should not be surprised that such a causation or link is found [for homosexuality]. The discovery of a biological factor would not change the Bible’s moral verdict on homosexual behavior.

If a biological basis is found, and if a prenatal test is then developed, and if a successful treatment to reverse the sexual orientation to heterosexual is ever developed, we would support its use as we should unapologetically support the use of any appropriate means to avoid sexual temptation and the inevitable effects of sin.
