The Bible on Homosexuality
by DaySounds, 2015
The Bible message on God, human beings, and God's love--with its consequent
moral code-- is supra-cultural. The Old Testament ceremonial code was
fulfilled by the Messiah, Jesus.
"And Yahweh God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being."
"And Yahweh God said, 'It is not good that the man should be alone; I will
make him a suitable helper.'"
"And Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam; and, while he was
sleeping, He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. And from
the rib, which Yahweh God had taken from the man, He made a woman,
and brought her unto the man."
"And Adam said, 'This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She
shall be called woman--because she was taken out of man.'"
"Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave
unto his wife and they shall be one flesh."
(Genesis 2: 7, 18, 21-24)
"You shall not lie with a male as with a female. It is an abomination."
"If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed
"Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory
of the incorruptible God into an image made like the corruptible
man, like birds, quadrupeds, and reptiles. Therefore, God released
them into uncleanness, into the lusts of their own hearts; so, they
dishonored their own bodies between themselves, who changed
the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature
instead of the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
"For this reason, God released them into vile affections, for even their
women changed the natural use into that which is against nature; and,
likewise, also the men leaving the natural use of the woman, burned
in their lust one toward another; men with men doing that which is not
suitable, and receiving in themselves the recompense of their sin.
"And, since they didn't choose to pay attention to God, God released
them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things that are not good;
being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness,
evil; full of envy, murder, quarreling, deceit, and malignity; gossips,
backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, arrogant, inventors of evil
things, disobedient to parents, fools, unfaithful, without natural affection,
implacable, unmerciful; who knowing the judgment of God, that they who
commit such things are worthy of death, not only do them, but have
pleasure in those who practice them."
(Romans 1: 26-31)
"Don't you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor
homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor
revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the Kingdom of God.
"And such used to be some of you, but you have been washed, you have
been sanctified, you have been justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and
by the Spirit of our God."
(I Corinthians 6:9-11)
"Let no sin, therefore, reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in
its lusts; neither yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto
sin; but yield yourselves unto God, as those who are alive from the dead, and
your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin will not
have dominion over you; for you are not under the law, but under grace."
The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is a choice of human beings, and
that that choice is a serious mistake (sin), which is comparable to any other
serious conscious, premeditated errors listed by Paul in the aforementioned
epistles to the churches of Rome and Corinth.
We, as Christians, should love every human being, regardless of their behavior.
When we love someone, we should kind and urgently let them know if they are
walking on a trail leading to a cliff; then, we should guide them to the trail which
will take them Home--if they allow us to do it.
If you, dear reader, are entangled in an addiction, whether it be homosexuality
or another one, turn to God with all your heart, mind, and soul, with all your
strength. Tell Him you want to leave that lifestyle, put your entire life in His Hands.
He will be there for you and help you. He loves you.
Brake any friendships or relationships, any ties to the addiction. Read the Bible
on a daily basis--if you can; meditate on it; refuse to entertain sinful thoughts.
Talk to God as what He is: your loving Father, the Creator of the Universe. Sing
to the Lord, eat healthy foods, enjoy the outdoors, make friends that love God
with all their hearts and live just for Him.
Note.- Some people think, and try to make others think, that if a man likes
flowers, bright colors, is kind and soft-spoken, loves rainbows, doesn't like
football or soccer, it means that he is homosexual. That is faulty logic, based
on socio-cultural stereotypes. Please don't lead someone into a sinful,
destructive path through your repeated jokes, comments, and behavior.
