It's good that Christian leaders finally understand enough about the origins of homosexuality to be able to give out advice that will hopefully be early enough to save this boy from a life of degradation and shame.
If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17
He goes on in Ephesians 4:23,24 to say this:
"put away the old man which is being corrupted in accordance with the lust of deceit, be renewed in your mind, and put on the new man which is created in righteousness and true holiness."
The old man can be overcome and Paul says we are to put him on. I was a drunk and drug addict for ten years before God woke me up this Scripture. I had to make a choice to give it up and with His help became an overcomer. All sin is the same and can be overcome through Christ.
I can do all things through Christ who stenghthens me."
