"What does the Bible say about homosexuality? Is homosexuality a sin?"
Answer: In some people’s minds, being homosexual is as much outside one’s control as the color of your skin and your height. On the other hand, the Bible clearly and consistently declares that homosexual activity is a sin, that's the main reason YaHuWaH destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:1–13.)
Leviticus 18:22, Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. KJV
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. KJV
Romans 1:26–32, 26 For this cause YaHuWaH gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 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, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain YaHuWah in their knowledge, YaHuWaH gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of YaHuWaH, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of YaHuWaH, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. KJV
1 Corinthians 6:9, Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of YaHuWaH. Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. KJV
Revelations 21:8 But those cowardly and unbelieving, and those having become abominable and murders, and those sexually illicit and sorcerers, and idolaters and all deceitful, their portion is in the Lake that is burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
When examining what the Bible says about homosexuality, it is important to distinguish between homosexual behavior and homosexual inclinations or attractions. It is the difference between active sin and the passive condition of being tempted. Homosexual behavior is sinful, but the Bible never says it is a sin to be tempted. Simply stated, a struggle with temptation may lead to sin, but the struggle itself is not a sin.
Romans 1:26–27 teaches that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying YaHuWaH. When people continue in sin and unbelief, YaHuWaH, “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from YaHuWaH. One of the fruits of rebellion against YaHuWaH is homosexuality. First Corinthians 6:9 proclaims that those who practice homosexuality, and therefore transgress YaHuWaH'S created order, are not saved.
A person may be born with a greater susceptibility to homosexuality, just as some people are born with a tendency to violence and other sins. That does not excuse the person’s choosing to sin by giving in to sinful desires. Just because a person is born with a greater susceptibility to fits of rage, that doesn’t make it right for him to give in to those desires and explode at every provocation. The same is true with a susceptibility to homosexuality.
No matter our proclivities or attractions, we cannot continue to define ourselves by the very sins that crucified Our Messiah YaHuWsHuWaH.
Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto YaHuWaH thy ALuHiYM.
We are not to be partakers with such homosexuality, in fact it is our duty to help them to trim from their sin and turn to YaHuWaH so they will be forgiven and redeemed.
We as parents must protect our children from the infuluence of homosexuality by educating our children and safe guarding them from thinking this is natural or accepted behavior in our homes. Teach them it's an abomination to YaHuWaH our Creator. If we as parents do not correct this behavioral attitude in our homes then school and friends will teach them it is acceptable behavior; then we as parents are just as guilty in promoting it and we as parents are going to be held accountable for not standing up for righteousness. Parents will be held accountable for being partakers of the homosexual sin if you do not speak out against it and allow that sin in your homes. MONGRALIZTION Clink Link SHaLauWM HaYAH ATaH
