Christopher Yuan on “Is Being Gay Genetic?”

By Randy Alcorn April 28, 2021

A few years ago when we were both speaking at an apologetics conference, I had the privilege of meeting Christopher Yuan, who is an author, speaker, and instructor at Moody Bible Institute. I read a lot of books, and Christopher Yuan’s Holy Sexuality and the Gospel: Sex, Desire, and Relationships Shaped by God’s Grand Story is on the shortlist of most important books I’ve read in the last decade.

Christopher is that rare individual who has personally grappled with issues related to homosexuality in the crucible of life. Instead of reinventing theology or engaging in creative interpretation, he lives consistently with biblical beliefs even when it’s personally difficult or unpopular. In that respect, he is God’s gift to us, and I for one am profoundly grateful. 

The Colson Center produced a video with Christopher answering the question, “Is Being Gay Genetic?” for their What Would You Say? series. This is a terrific answer.
