Why would God make someone gay and then deny them a loving, committed same-sex relationship?

This question assumes that God made someone gay. So the first point is that it's not been proven that people are born with same-sex attractions (see FAQ "What causes same-sex attraction?"). Secondly, the question ignores the biblical truth that we live in a fallen world where every one of us has desires that God calls us to deny.

Rob’s Story - Growing in Grace

Where to start…my name is Rob and I’m now 24 years old, well in fact soon to be 25, so cue mid-life crisis! Although I'm not from a Christian background I did grow up in a loving family with a nice upbringing. I listened intently to Gospel messages when I was 10 years old and started going to the church youth group and other services. I experienced God's love and started to grow in faith.
