I love your Bible versus but I dislike this one and not sure how it is linked to recovery.
Sexual orientation is definitely not a choice, trust me, I battled it for a long time and if I could have made it go away I most certainly would have.
I am in a faithful, committed relationship with another man, I respect women too much to force myself in to a relationship where their whole life would be based on my lies, I’m sure God wouldn’t want that either. At 34 I am only now really able to be proud of myself and my guilt and shame contributed a lot to my drinking.
Not a bible quote but here’s a quote on how I feel about it:
“I’m sure God didn’t put us on this earth to be sad or to create fear and confusion, so there’s one thought I’ve had, he made us all, Black or white, straight or gay, love thy neighbour he said, and he made us this way”
