Tye Tribbett, award-winning gospel recording artist, shared recently that although he agrees that homosexuality may be “natural,” he does not believe it is “God’s best for our lifestyle, according to the Bible.”
Speaking exclusively to Sister 2 Sister magazine about his observations on how some churches approach dealing with congregants who may experience same-sex attraction, Tribbett said he agreed with the interviewer’s suggestion that homosexuality was “natural,” but made it clear that he does not believe God approves of it.
“There are lots of things that are natural to us that may not be God’s best for us,” he told the publication, which is featuring his interview in its April issue. “That’s my only thing. I’m not saying that homosexuality is not natural. I agree with you that it is. There are several things that come naturally that’s not God’s best. Children 2 years old, ‘Did you eat that cookie?’ ‘No.’ Lying came naturally to them.”
He added, “Nobody taught that kid how to lie. It came in the flesh package, but that’s not God’s best. There are certain things that can trigger the not-so-great natural in all of us. But is it God’s will or God’s best for us, period? And I don’t condemn homosexuality, but I don’t believe it’s God’s best for our lifestyle, according to the Bible.
