What Does the Bible Say About
Homosexuality is unnatural.
Homosexuals cannot reproduce. It takes a male and a female to make a baby. Human bodies are naturally designed for the physical union of a man and a woman. The LGBT lifestyles are against nature (Romans 1:26-28). God designed this relationship both for reproduction (Genesis 1:28) and for pleasure (Proverbs 5:18-19). However, He made clear laws (1) that this physical union was to be between a man and a woman, (2) that this union was for life, and (3) that any sexual relations outside of this union is a sin (Hebrews 13:4). See and consider what Jesus Himself said about marriage and God’s original design for it (Matthew 19:1-9).
Homosexuality is a sin.
Leviticus 18:22 – “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”
Sin, by definition, is to break God’s law (1 John 3:4). Any time we live in a way that goes against God’s law, we sin, and we are separated from a relationship with a Holy God (Isaiah 59:1-2). There is a term today called “sodomy” which refers to a homosexual relationship between two males. That term comes the Biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah, cities which God completely destroyed because of their wickedness, not limited to, but including homosexuality (Genesis 19).
God loves the homosexual, and He wants him or her to repent and come to Jesus.
Homosexuals are not worse sinners than any other sinners, and God loves them like He loves everyone else. But sin, any sin, will bring about the wrath of a Holy and Just God. Therefore, because He loves the whole world, He sent Jesus to die for the sins of the whole world, so that whoever comes to Jesus and believes in Him will be saved (John 3:16). Homosexuals can be forgiven and restored to Jesus if they repent, just like any other sinner.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 – 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, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 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.
