If you watch TV or just pay attention to anything going on in the world today, you’ll notice homosexuality is not only being promoted within the mainstream world, but by a lot of churches.There is no way around it, homosexuality is like every other sin, hated by God. Some say that it’s a lifestyle choice, or determined by genetics and when confronted with Romans 1:18-32, some people will say that these words were only meant for the culture of the day. When dealing with the Old Testament passages condemning homosexual activity (Lev 18: 20:13) the same arguments are also made. But what’s a clearly moral issue in both the Old and New Testaments cannot be applied only to the past like it’s just a cultural law. The Bible condemns this conduct because it goes against God’s plan for a natural sexual relation between a man and a woman in marriage.

As with any sin the action of homosexuality can be forgiven, and it’s temptations can be overcome. God will forgive and accept anyone who wants to be set free fro the bondage of this sin. And one believer can accept another one no matter what their background if they want to make a change in their lifestyle and live for God. Remember, this is not an unforgivable sin and we need to reach the lost in any situation to turn their lives back over to the Lord and become cleansed of their sins.Don’t hate the sinner hate the sin. Pray them back to a Godly lifestyle.


Romans 1:18-32

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[a] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 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.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
