Homosexuality is a Detestable and Unnatural Act
Yes. Men having sex with each other is an abomination and condemned by God. Women having sex with each other is also an abomination and condemned by God. This isn’t new news, it’s not like all of sudden Christians have come on the scene proclaiming sodomy is a immoral act and a sin in eyes of God.
23 The man 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.” 24 For this reason, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
“Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”
Scripture is crystal clear on the subject of homosexual behavior, same-sex marriage, and all sexual immorality.
God is also clear on marriage. Marriage is between one man and one woman. Hard to twist Genesis 2:23 & 24, right? There’s nothing in these two verses about a man marrying a man or women be joined with a woman is there?
“Amoral” – lacking a moral sense; unconcerned with the rightness or wrongness of something.
The Bible is crystal clear on the subject of homosexuality.
Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.
Romans 1:27 And the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
Romans 1:28-32 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them.
Enemies of God
What God says about homosexual behavior or any other subject is absolutely meaningless to the LGBTQ crowd. As believers, we need to step away from the rhetoric and focus solely on sharing the gospel with the lost world. Until a lost person comes to the knowledge of Christ they are blinded by Satan and an enemy of God. (Romans 8:7)
3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 in whose case the god (Satan) of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:3,4
Because the carnal mind is enmity (enemy) against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
But a natural (unsaved) man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised (discerned).
2 Corinthians 2:14
A person that practices homosexuality is just as ungodly as any other human being that is lost has no knowledge of the gospel of grace or has rejected the gospel.
A “SINNER” hearing the good news that Jesus Christ died for their sins, was buried and rose again from the dead. Has a choice to reject the good news or believe the good news. It’s the individual’s decision that determines where they spend eternity. Not their *sins! All mankind are already sinners and headed to a lake of fire because of Adam’s disobedience. (Romans 5:12)
So get off the rhetoric-train and focus on the main thing “the gospel”.
We need to share the gospel with as many people as we can every day all the time, everywhere and anywhere. That’s where our energy must focus and remain on sharing the gospel of grace.
Of course, as believers, we recognize that a man having sex with a man is disgusting and sinful behavior but it’s not our job to judge. We’ve all already been judged. Our “ministry” is to share the gospel with the lost. That’s it. If we take a stand, we take a stand on the gospel, not the sin of homosexual, lesbian lifestyle or same sex marriage.
Born Sinners Not Born Gay
The LGBTQ crowd pushes the narrative that a person is born gay or born with same sex attraction It would be laughable if it were not so serious. No one is born gay that’s just stupid talk. But we are ALL born sinners and all under the curse. (Romans 5:12,18) Same sex attraction, same sex marriage, transgender, homosexuality, or a lesbian lifestyle are all products of sin and the curse.
The combination of a demonic powered “sin nature”, rejection of the gospel, destitute of faith and a deep hatred for God, is a recipe for abject wickedness and a reprobate mind. Which is on full display all over the world manifesting right in front of our eyes and growing more wicked by the day.
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
But God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for the ungodly. (Romans 5:6) Take a look at what Paul writes to a group of people that were steeped in all kinds of sin including homosexuality but God saved them.
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
It’s All about the Gospel of Jesus Christ
The amazing mercy and grace that God has poured out on mankind is mind-boggling. When judgment comes to those that rejected His free gift of salvation it won’t be the fire that torments the lost for eternity. It will be the full knowledge of the truth…that God loved them in spite of their sin and all they had to do was believe the gospel.
If you’re reading this and you are living a homosexual or lesbian lifestyle God has already forgiven you and reconciled you to Himself through His Son Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Colossians 1:19,20,21)
God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for all your sins, past, present and future, He was buried and rose again three days later. Because of God’s great love for you, He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die in your place to pay for your sins. All He asks is that you believe by faith in the gospel and you will be saved. Only resurrection power can nail your SIN NATURE to the His cross and you will become a new creation, old things are passed away and behold all things have become new.
‘Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. ‘
2 Corinthians 5:17
But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.
That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
19 Namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
2 Corinthians 5:19-21
There is nothing else you have to do but believe by faith in the gospel. Then God will take over and do a work in you, and make a new creation. The Creator of the universe loves all mankind so much in spite of our sins that He sent His own Son to die for all. And all He asks is that you believe Him.
That’s a God of love.

*a person’s sins while they were on earth will play a role in punishment in the lake of fire but does that really matter? (Matthew 23:14, Luke 10:14-15, James 3:1, John 19:11)
