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).

    • I agree with you about people not writing about other sins God has listed. But i have to agree with the Bible Gods word is quite clear. Divorce and remarriage is acceptable but was not 60 yrs ago. Gossip in the church is all rampant. I believe we are called to stand in unity as the bride groom. Not all thiese separate believe systems. This makes us divided and Jesus warned about that. I honestly believe we are called to love the person and hate the sin. But we are to speak the truth of God’s word. Take the women at the well. Jesus said go and sin no more. He didnt say your forgiven continue living as you were. If that were the case why would he die on the cross.

  1. Please pray for my granddaughter. She left home about a year and a half ago and married a woman who I believe has manipulated her and controlled her and she has nothing to do with her family she will not even give us her phone number or address or anything. I have tried to reach out to her I have sent her cards at her job and I have asked her to please call me that I love her I don’t care if she’s a lesbian I still love her even though I do not believe she is really even gay but I guess I need to just turn the page
