Truth: Homosexuality In The Bible

A Times poll sited by Christian Concern has said that 64.5% of the Church of England pastors think the church “should abandon the biblical teachings that homosexual practice is incompatible with Scripture” -WND. Many churches in the United States have split over the same issue. But what does the Bible really say?

First of all, the Bible clearly says that homosexual behavior is a sin.

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.”-Leviticus 18:22

 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination;” – Leviticus 20:13

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change 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 working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” – Romans 1:26-27

“We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,  for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine” – 1 Timothy 1:9-10

The Bible is true as it is; we don’t get to change it to match our behavior!

Can this sin be forgiven? Of course. Jesus forgives all sin, while we are still alive! But like all sin, it does require repentance. Which as we know, means both “sincere regret” for our sin, as well as a true commitment to change.

Jesus loves each one of us and wants to bring us all to Heaven. It’s up to each one of us to accept His invitation 🙂
