Hello, this debate is for Christians that think that Homosexuality is okay, therefore since we are both Christians I will use biblical reference. This is my first so I don't know really the understand how everything works so please understand my beginners errors.

Round 1) Introduction
Round 2) Argument
Round 3) Response to Argument
Round 4) Closing Statements


I assume round 1 is for acceptance.
Debate Round No. 1


God's plan for natural sexual relationships is his ideal for his creation. Unfortunately, sin distorts the natural use of God's gifts. Sin often means not only denying God, but also denying the way we are made. When people say that any act of sex act is acceptable as long as nobody gets hurt, they are fooling themselves. In the long run (and often the short run), sin hurts people - individuals, families, whole societies. Because sex is such a powerful and essential part of what means to be human, it must be treated with great respect. Sexual desires are of such importance that the Bible gives them special attention and counsels more careful restraint a d self-control than any other desire. One of the clearest indicators of a society or person in rebellion against God is the rejection of God's guidelines for the use of sex.

Homosexuality was as widespread in Paul's day as it is in ours. Many pagan practices encouraged it. God is willing to receive anyone who comes to him in faith, and Christians should love and accept others no matter what their background. Yet, homosexuality is strictly forbidden in Scripture (Leviticus 18:22). Homosexuality is considered an acceptable practice by many in our world today - even by some churches. But society does not set the standard for God's law. Many homosexuals believe that their desires are normal and that they have a right to express them, but God does not obligate nor encourage us to fulfill all our desires (even normal ones). Those desires that violate his laws must be controlled.

Male prostitutes refer to those who practice homosexuality. The temple of Apollo employed men whose job it was to fulfill the sexual desires of male and female worshipers. Some attempt to legitimize homosexuality as an acceptable alternative lifestyle. Even some Christians say that people have a right to choose their sexual preference. But the Bible specifically calls homosexual behavior sin (again see Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Timothy 1:9-11).

In a permissive society it is easy for Christians to overlook or tolerate some immoral behaviors while remaining outraged at others. We must not participate in sin or condone it in any way, nor we may we be selective about what we condemn or excuse. Staying away from more "acceptable" forms of sin is difficult, but it is no harder for us than it was for the Corinthians. God experts his followers in any age to have high standards.
