Maybe you could explain Tom what the crux of this issue is I think this one's a difficult one to discern. Most Christians might think well of course you know were falling we have desires for wrong things in some heterosexual Christians have desires for adultery are lost and so forth. How is that really any different than a Christian who has homosexual desires and it that's just who they are, how to answer that goes back to the question of identity and he was in Christ is a new creation old things passed away.

All things become. This is Paul's language to a subsequent inspired so that that the issue is in what way are Christians, made new. How are we made mood that the newness mean that we go ahead and live with the sand remains in us having signed a peace treaty with it because that's just who we are or do we live with remaining sin in us saying we declare war on that sin. And we're going to mortify the deeds of the flesh and the lust of the flesh so that we might live in and not die because we don't we will we will die this. The sand remains a Christian is of the same quality of that which used to dominate us before we were Christians and so we have to continually declare war on it and put to death the deeds of the flesh up by the power of the spirit, this question is a naughty one, and it can be difficult, especially you get into the deep weeds pretty quickly with but one way to bring clarity is to substitute other types of sin.

Or you could just take other types of sexual deviancy for same-sex attraction so we say are on the same-sex attracted Christian and I expect you to accept me in my identity.

That's how God made what we feel comfortable not to hear someone say you know I am just a PDO celiac Christian, and I'm a man who wants to have sex with children. That's my desire but I'm a Christian and I'm not act on that on but that's who I am.

Don't try to change me rhyme up on the steel Christian.

I'm a man wants to have sex with with the animals, but that's just who I am. Those are my desires are here in me. Of course, we wouldn't ugly we automatically see still at this point. Give us 10 years. We may not. But at this point we still see that that is perverse that that is sin against nature is a violation of the turning on its head.
