Desires Can Be Corrupt

In trying to justify sin by saying that a person can desire people of the same sex, but just as long as they don't act upon it, they are ok, they help those people continue in their enslavement of sin. A Christian cannot be enslaved to sin, having an unnatural desire for those of the same sex. It is the result of not honoring God as God:

Rom 1:21  For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

The speculations people come up with and believe are not according to sound doctrine and words of Scripture, either. Speculating that God didn't create all things in six literal days by the power of His Word, they speculate long ages and other types of evolutionary theories. That leads to speculation about creation of Man and sexuality. One is linked to the other and if one has an unsound--speculation--of the Beginning--it will lead to more speculation, like about sexuality, marriage, etc.

Desires that are contrary to sound doctrine & Christ ARE corrupt and thus sinful:

2Pe 2:10  and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires and despise authority. Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties,

From G1937; a longing (especially for what is forbidden): - concupiscence, desire, lust (after).

2Pe 2:18  For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error,

Rom 1:26  For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,
Rom 1:27  and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

From G3713; excitement of the mind, that is, longing after: - lust.
