Is Homosexuality Sin?
Is it shown to be wrong by the Bible and overall harmful by medical science?
Most assuredly YESNote that by "homosexuality is forbidden" what is meant here is that same-sex attraction is one of the disorders resulting from man's disobedience to God, and that homosexual relations are only condemned wherever they are manifestly dealt with in the word of God. For God made man and women distinctively different yet uniquely compatible and complementary, and only joined them together in marriage - as the Lord Jesus Himself specified. (Mt. 19:4–6)
Yet there is still room at the cross for all who will come to God in repentance and faith, and trust in the Divine Son of God sent by the Father, the risen Lord Jesus, to save them on His accounThanks be to Godt, by His sinless shed blood, and thus be baptized and live for Him. (Acts 10:36-47) Thanks be to God.
Gen 2:24 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” [The word “wife” here (ish-shaw', naw-sheem') is found 776 times in the Old Testament, and when used in reference to a person(s) it always refers to either a women or a wife (singular or plural), but NEVER TO A MAN. Likewise the word for wife (goo-nay') in the New Testament (cf. Mat. 19:5). Neither is there any sanction anywhere in God's Word for any homosexual union of any type.]
Lev 18:22 "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." [homosexual relations controvert the natural order established by God, and are morally perverse and anatomically (etc.) incorrect.]
Leviticus 20:13 "If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death: their blood shall be upon them.." [The severity of this sin, along with others, is seen in the penalty it requires. No nation has escaped Divine judgment for sanctioning it.]
Genesis 19:5 And they [the men of Sodom] called unto Lot and said unto him, "Where are the men who came into thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them." [the word "know" in this context is contextually demonstrated to mean sexually (see v.8), as it is in the reference below].
Judges 19:22 "Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about and beat at the door, and spoke to the master of the house, the old man, saying, 'Bring forth the man who came into thine house, that we may know him.' [They then sexually abused a women to death (V.25).
Jude 1:7 ".. even as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, in like manner giving themselves over to fornication and going after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." [From the climatic sinful practice of Sodom comes the term "Sodomite" to describe those who practice sexual acts with "strange flesh,” as it is abnormal for men to have sexual relations with men rather than with women. Only the latter act is morally sanctioned in marriage.
Romans 1:26, 27 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men, working that which is unseemly [shameful], and receiving in themselves [in their own bodies] that recompense for their error which was meet." [A full reading of this chapter reveals that the sin of men "leaving the natural use of the woman" to engage in sexual acts with each other is the last stage of a number of progressive steps of degeneration. God warns and history reveals that when a nation yields to such it's demise is not far behind. The only hope for redemption is to repent and surrender in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ, "who loved me and gave Himself for me" - Gal. 2:20]
1Corinthians 6:9 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, ..”
1Tim. 1:10 .. the lawless and disobedient, ... them that defile themselves with mankind .. [male-copulator; laws are necessary against such]
Rev. 22:15 .. without [the Heaven city] are dogs [synonym for homosexuals], and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
See Homosexual relations and the Bible for a comprehensive treatment this issue.
Medical studies reveal that the overwhelming majority of male homosexuals have sexual relations with a multiplicity of partners through the course of their lives (even if “married”) resulting in a greatly increased rate of disease and premature death (by up to 30 years).
Among other things, the unnatural sexual practices of homosexuals generally result in:
A much greater incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STD's).
Greater incidence of infectious hepatitis which increases the risk of potentially fatal liver cancer.
Increased rates of many types of bowel diseases [the male is not designed for sex with men. as with women]
Substantially reduced life expectancy [1,000 times greater chance of dying from just AID's alone], and or dependence upon very costly drug “cocktails” to prolong life.
Much higher rates of death by suicide.
Even worse, an increasingly reprobate mind that will not/cannot yield to Christ.
God's laws are holy just and good (Rm. 7:12) and to our benefit when obeyed. We dishonor God and help no one by justifying sin (such as sodomy) which is demonstrably shown to be overall harmful physically, mentally, and spiritually. Only by admitting your sinfulness and guilt and turning instead to the Lord Jesus can you be saved from sin to follow Him!

Jesus can set you free
There is a God, your Creator, who has created you to know Him and who has given us both good things and good laws. Yet “All have sinned” (Rm. 3:23), breaking His good laws and misusing the good things which He has given us for our benefit.
Sin has separated you from God, the Source of Life, resulting in Spiritual Death (Gen. 2:17; Eph. 2:1). Man tries to satisfy the emptiness in his soul by making created things or persons his god. Whether it be the "lust of the flesh" [sensual pleasure], "the lust of the eyes" [possessions] or "the pride of life" [prestige or power] (1 Jn. 2:16), it is all a vain and sinful attempt to find security and fulfillment apart from the True and Living God. Neither can we justify sinful choices by saying “I was born that way.”
You were were created with the capacity to know God, but nothing sinful will be, or should be, allowed into God's Heavenly City (Is. 59:1, 2; Rv. 21:27), If you die in your sins you will not enter Heavenly bliss, but will end up in a place that is just the opposite of Heaven, a real place called the Lake of Fire (Mt. 25:41 ; Rev. 20:15; 21:8).
The Only Way you can have your sins forgiven and know God is through the Lord JESUS CHRIST, whom the Father sent to save you (Acts 4:12; 10:43; 13:39; 1Jn. 4:10, 14).
It is this JESUS, the Son of God, who came down from Heaven to live a completely sinless and perfect life, revealing God's grace, truth, love and righteousness,.. Yet after doing everything “right,” it is He who took responsibility for all we have done wrong, paying for our sins with His own sinless blood on the cross of His death. Having done all, it is this JESUS who rose from the dead to Heaven as Savior and Judge (Act 10:39-43). God now calls you to turn to Him from sin and receive His Son, Whom He “hath made both Lord and Christ”. ( Act 2:36-47; 13:16-41).
What you do with Jesus, “God manifest in the flesh,” reveals what you ultimately love and where you will spend ETERNITY. If you die without Christ - if you have not turned to God from sin and cast all your faith upon the Risen Lord Jesus to save you, and had all your sins washed away by His precious blood - then you must face the just punishment which your sins require.
I pray that instead of sin and a sure Hell you will choose Christ and His Life today! Humble yourself as a sinner before God, decide you want Jesus instead of sin and humbly and honestly ask Him to save you. Then be baptized and follow Him with a Bible-believing/preaching church. Those who have truly received Christ are made spiritually alive (born again) by the Spirit of God and want to serve Him (despite persecutions)!
Grace and peace through the Lord Jesus Christ +++++++++++++
