When do homosexual or lesbian temptations become sin?

At the same point when heterosexual temptations become sin. The book of James sheds light on this important question: But each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin. (James 1:14-15) There is always a time gap between conception and birth. A homosexual thought occurring in our mind can be either killed or nurtured. If it grows, it gives birth to sin. That is where our ability to choose comes into effect. We make the choice whether or not homosexual thoughts (temptations) will become sin. All Christians deal with inappropriate sexual feelings and attractions. Those addressing and overcoming same-gender attraction are not unique and do not belong in a different subclass than the rest of the Church. Sexual struggles are a part of being human.
