What Does The Bible Say About Homosexuality? Is Homosexuality A Sin?

The Bible consistently tells us that homosexual activity is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Romans 1:26-27 teaches specifically that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying God. When people continue in sin and unbelief, God “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin in order to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from God. 1 Corinthians 6:9 proclaims that homosexual “offenders” will not inherit the kingdom of God.

 

God does not create a person with homosexual desires. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin (Romans 1:24-27) and ultimately because of their own choice. A person may be born with a greater susceptibility to homosexuality, just as some people are born with a tendency to violence and other sins. That does not excuse the person’s choosing to sin by giving in to sinful desires. If a person is born with a greater susceptibility to anger/rage, does that make it right for him to give into those desires? Of course not! The same is true with homosexuality.

However, the Bible does not describe homosexuality as a “greater” sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God. Homosexuality is just one of the many things listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that will keep a person from the kingdom of God. According to the Bible, God’s forgiveness is just as available to a homosexual as it is to an adulterer, idol worshipper, murderer, thief, etc. God also promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Philippians 4:13).

  1. It is very simple what the bible states about same sex lifestyles…but again who are we to uphold those commands unless directed to do so. Christians know when we read the bible we receive its full counsel and any one part is cut out to suit us.

  2. Daniel Tessa god made Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve. But of course we should love the sinner and hate the sin. So let’s help those people to live a happy life. Remember the discussion last year we had after church with our priest? After reading the Bible verses he told us, I can now better understand what he meant. Just look up the bible and you will find answers

  3. Well the commandments do say that, “thou shalt lay with man, as man would lay with woman” with that being said it’s God to do the judgement not us, and it’s the sin not the sinner. I do say it’s a sin, but everyone sins everyday, what is in important is our relationship with God first foremost. We are perfectly imperfect and that’s how God wanted us to be, free will. His love for us does not alter, so therefore in all honesty it’s not for me to say because I am only a child of God, not God himself.
