Homosexuality! Is it a sin According to the Bible?

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 1:26-27teaches 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 6:9proclaims 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.Homosexualityis just one of the many things listed in1 Corinthians 6:9-10that 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 am a bit confused. The readings are not about homosexuality in the chart. The chart is about “marriage”. How does this chart and homosexuality connect here? Plus, I disagree with your statement that the bible does not make homosexuality a greater sin. Yes, yes it does because the verse in the bible clearly says that the person that practices homosexuality will not inherent the Kingdom of God. This is a falls under ‘mortal sin’, not venial. There are different levels to sin, look it up in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

    Homosexual activity. No matter how you look at it. If you prefer that lifestyle then you’re going against God and what his plan for your life is.

      Did you read this article at all? You don’t sound like you did. If I may ask, what specifically did the writer postulate that made him sound ignorant?

    I believe that homosexuality is a sin. And that sin will keep you from inheritance of heaven. I don’t believe god made you that way it is a choice that you,and you alone make. There for with the practice of this sin. You exclude yourself from the riches,and blessings of heaven. It is your choice. Make it a blessed one. Thank you…and Amen.

    I suppose you’re going to call God ignorant and a bigot when He doesn’t let you in.

    homosexuality is an abomination to the Lord. it’s a greater offense than other sins.
