Is someone born gay? Does God create homosexuals?

No, someone is not born gay or created by God to be homosexual.  God does not tempt anyone with sin or evil (James 1:13-15), such as the sin of homosexuality (Romans 1:24-32, Genesis 19 , Leviticus  18:22 ; 20:13, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Galatians 5:19-21, Ephesians 5:3-3 , 1 Timothy 1:9,10 , Jude 7).  Just as there is no genetic excuse for anger, murder, lust, adultery, greed, theft, or lying, there is no genetic excuse for homosexuality or any other sin.
Everyone is born with inherited sin with both guilt of and inclination towards sin (Romans 5:12, Jeremiah 17:9, Psalm 51:3-5).  We all then choose to sin against our Creator by failing to treasure and value God above any other thing.  We all morally rebel against God’s commands and will be held accountable according to His perfect, Holy standard (Romans 3:10-12, 23).
Our family and cultural environment may influence us toward a particular type of sin, but sin is ultimately a personal choice of law breaking that we make.  We should not be surprised or shocked when non-believers do not understand God’s truths or yield to obey His plans.  Such ongoing submission to and choice of sin as their practice and identity reveals their lost state.
