Does the Bible condemn homosexual status (yes) or behavior (no)?

  • Homosexuality Is Sin

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

  • Oh, big time.

    Lev. 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

    Lev. 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them.

    1 Cor. 6:9-10 - Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    Rom. 1:26-28 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.

    Not only does God dislike homosexuality, it's a punishment that warrants hell for eternity, and a very short, painful life (if your village is practicing the religion truly).

    So the creator who made you how you are is so against the way you are he'll have the rest of us beat you to death so you can burn for all time thereafter. Yeah, I'd say he's pretty against it.

  • Yes it does.

    In the bible it is pretty clear that you should not lie with a man as you do with a women. This is in terms of sexual activities so the bible is very clear about it. Its strange how these words are now getting twisted by the church to say no its okay as they are hemorrhaging members because of their stone age beliefs.

  • The Bible says nothing about it

    There is like one passage from Leviticus that says that men should not lie with other men. And you know what's also in Leviticus? Working on the Sabbath, getting tattoos, cutting your beard, mixing fabrics in clothing, and other things that hardly any Christians actually follow. So unless you're going to follow those rules, then don't preach about how homosexuality is wrong. Christians are only required to follow the New Testament.

  • You shall not lie with a male

    Judging by those biblical words, the Bible condemns homosexual behavior, not the status. But it seems like the status is being denounced as heavily as the behavior is. If religious scripture does not say it castigates homosexual or bisexual status, but specifically forbids same-sex activity, then it basically is saying merely being homosexual is an abomination.
