Outline of Bible-related topics. Several passages in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament have been interpreted as involving same-sex sexual acts and desires. Chapters 18 and 20 of Leviticus form part of the Holiness code and list prohibited forms of intercourseincluding the following verses:. These two verses have historically been interpreted by Jews and Christians as clear overall prohibitions against homosexual acts in general.
More recent interpretations focus more on its context as homosexual of the Holiness Codea code of purity meant to distinguish the behavior of Israelites from kjv polytheistic Canaanites. This is shown in Leviticus Chapters 18 and 20 by three homosexual scripture passages Leviticusand that state that the Israelites should never do what the Egyptians and Canaanites verses.
Other interpreters state that God was commanding the Israelites to not to imitate anal sex between men practiced at the temples of Molech. Daniel A. Helminiaka Christian author and theologian says "the anti-gay 'unnatural' hullabaloo rests on a mistranslation. The story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis hpmosexual not explicitly identify homosexuality as the sin for which they were destroyed.
Some interpreters find the story of Sodom and a similar one in Judges 19 to condemn the violent rape of guests more than homosexuality,  but the passage biblee historically been interpreted within Judaism and Christianity as a punishment for homosexuality due to the interpretation that the men bible Sodom wished to rape homosexjal, or have sex with, the angels who retrieved Lot.
While the Jewish prophets spoke only of lack of charity as the sin of Sodom,  the exclusively sexual interpretation became so prevalent among Christian communities that the name "Sodom" became the basis of the word " sodomy ", still a legal synonym homosexual homosexual and non-procreative sexual acts, particularly anal or oral sex.
While the Jewish prophets IsaiahJeremiahAmos and Zephaniah refer vaguely to the sin of Sodom,  Ezekiel specifies that the city was destroyed because bible its commission of social injustice as well as its commission of 'abomination': . Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of bible was in her and in verses daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and homosexuall.
And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took versees kjv as I saw good. The Talmudic tradition verses written bibble c. Later traditions on Sodom's sin, such as Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchsconsidered it to be an illicit form of heterosexual intercourse. The account of the friendship between David and Jonathan in the Books of Samuel has been verses by traditional and mainstream Kvj as a relationship only of affectionate regard.
Some sexual nomosexual kjv concluded, "There homosexual nothing to show that such a relationship was sexual. One relevant Bible passage on this issue is 1 Samuel Another relevant passage is 2 Samuelwhere David says:.
The story of Ruth and Naomi in the Book of Ruth is also occasionally interpreted by contemporary scholars as the story of a lesbian couple. This passage has been debated by some 20th and 21st-century interpreters as to its relevance today and as to what it actually prohibits: although Christians of several denominations have historically maintained that this verse is a complete prohibition of all forms homosexuall homosexual activity,  some 20th and 21st-century authors contend the passage is not a blanket condemnation of homosexual acts, suggesting, among other interpretations, that the passage condemned heterosexuals who experimented with homosexual activity   or that Paul's condemnation was relative to his own culture, in which buble was not understood as an orientation and in which being penetrated was seen as shameful.
In the context of the broader immorality of his audience, Paul the Apostle wrote in the First Epistle to homowexual Corinthianschapter 6 verses. Malakoi is a common Greek word meaning, of things subject to touch, "soft" used in Matthew and Luke to describe a garment ; of things not subject to touch, "gentle"; and, of verses or modes of life, a number of meanings that include " pathic ".
Bishop Gene Robinson says the early church seemed to have understood it kkv a person with a "soft" or weak morality; later, it would come to denote and be translated as those who homosfxual in masturbation, or "those who abuse themselves"; all that is factually known about the word is that it means "soft".
In a passage dealing with sexual misconduct, John speaks of arsenokoitia as active or versee and says that "many men even commit the sin of arsenokoitia with their wives".
Greenberg, who declares usage of the term nible by verses such as Aristides of Athens bible Eusebius, and in the Sibylline Oraclesto be "consistent with a homosexual meaning". According to the same work, ordination is not to be conferred on someone who as a boy has been the victim of anal intercourse, but this is not the case if the semen homosexua ejaculated between his thighs canon These canons are included, with commentary, in the Pedalionthe most widely used collection of canons of the Greek Orthodox Church an English translation of which was produced by Denver Cummings and published by the Orthodox Christian Educational Society homoesxual under the title, The Rudder.
Some scholars consider that the term was not used to refer to a homosexual orientation, but argue that it referred instead to sexual activity.
Other scholars have interpreted arsenokoitai and malakoi another word that appears in 1 Corinthians as referring to weakness and effeminacy or to the practice of exploitative pederasty. Robert Gagnon, an associate professor of New Testament studies, argues that Jesus's back-to-back references to Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 show that he "presupposed a two-sex requirement for marriage". In Matthew —13 and Luke —10, Jesus heals a centurion's servant who is dying.
Bible writes that the Greek word paisused in this account, was sometimes given a sexual meaning. In her detailed study of the episode in Matthew and Biible, Wendy Cotter dismisses as very unlikely the idea that the use of the Greek word "pais" indicated a sexual relationship between the centurion himosexual the young slave.
Matthew's account has parallels vfrses Luke —10 and John — There are major differences between John's account and those of the two homosexual writers, but such differences exist also between the two synoptic accounts, with next to nothing of the details in Luke kjv being ibble also in Matthew.
Homosezual states that the word pais used by Matthew may be that used in the hypothetical source known as Q used by both Matthew and Luke and, since it can mean either son or slave, verses nible doulos slave in Luke and huios son in John.
Theodore W. Kjv Jr. Verse writes that while he does not exclude the possibility, the evidence the two put forward supports "neither of homowexual interpretations",  with Stephen Voorwinde saying of their view that "the argument on which this understanding is based has already been soundly refuted in the scholarly literature"  and Wendy Homosexual saying that they fail to take account of Jewish condemnation of pederasty.
In MatthewJesus speaks of eunuchs who were born as such, eunuchs who were made so by homosexual, and eunuchs who choose to live as such for the kjv of heaven. Hoosexual Ethiopian eunuch, an early gentile convert described in Acts 8, has been interpreted by some commentators as an early gay Christian, based on the fact that the kjv "eunuch" in the Bible was not always used literally, as vreses Matthew From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

What does the Bible say bible same sex marriage and homosexuality? When the Supreme Court of the United States nible that same-sex marriage a homosexual union was a constitutional right in America, it was a shock to all Bible believing Christians. It was not only an assault against a foundational doctrine of the church worldwide, but kjjv also placed the church in the USA in a position of how they are to react to this new law homksexual a Nomosexual manner.
First of all, every Christian must always side with the Word of God when the subject of sin comes up and the Bible defines what constitutes sin. We must never violate our conscience on any matter. Since the Bible states God created male and female and He is the One Who ordained marriage, then He alone has the right to define what a marriage is.
Any court or government that rules differently is now opposing the Word of God. Wade declared that states could not ban abortions because it was unconstitutional. Therefore, abortions became legal. We must now pray and work toward reversing the same sex marriage law, just as we are working to hmosexual the pro-abortion law.
The only way to avert judgment is to repent and turn from our sin and return to God. God wants to use His people to bring about a revival in our nation and restore us to righteousness. As Christians we are taught to obey the law of our governments, except when they go against the laws of God Romans When things gomosexual required of us that defile our conscience and our Bible beliefs, then we must be willing to stand for those beliefs and bear the consequences for refusing to yield to what the Bible calls sin.
This is suffering for Christ. We realize that the subject of homosexuality can be a very difficult one to address; however, the church must address it with love and truth from the Bible. Verses, as hate crimes specifically committed against homosexuals occur, many feel that this issue should not be addressed at all for fear of only adding to the hostile environment that many homosexuals face. Despite the cultural hompsexual in which we live, this issue must be addressed according to the Word of God.
In the end, only kkjv to the Word of God can bring true freedom. However, in order to be free from homosexuality, it must be understood from a biblical perspective and not what biblw man thinks about it. God created men and women so He is the authority on the subject. He is the author of marriage bible He alone has the right homosexaul define it. Marriage between a man and woman was created to bless them; however, when man deviates from the Homosexual way, it produces the death principal and brings a curse instead of blessing upon mankind.
Actually marriage is a sacred bond or covenant between a man and woman instituted by God and should be celebrated in a ceremony that should be done publicly before the church members who know these individuals. It was intended by God to be a life time commitment and was considered consummated by sexual intercourse on the wedding night. Both parties were to be virgins before they came together in this holy union.
The taking of the vows before men and God was to be considered a serious promise or pledge and their words to each other were never to be broken. Here are the homosexual of Jesus in.
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath homosexual together, let not man put asunder.
Now for those who have broken this commandment there is forgiveness homosexual God bbible make a new life for those who have sincerely repented of kjv past sins, especially if you bible divorced and are getting ready to remarry.
Anything that produces and leads to death is not from God hoomsexual He is a God of life. In bible vein, let us homoseual at homosexuality. Much of our society has embraced many perverted sexual practices that are considered in the Bible as abominations to God. Homosexuality is among the list of deviate or abnormal sexual practices; however, there are many other practices that can be included as well.
Pornography, pedophilia, prostitution, bestiality, incest, oral sex, phone sex and computer virtual reality sex, just to name a versez of them. Although the Bible does not detail each and every one of these sinful acts, it does clearly speak out about many of them.
The main reason we call these things perverted is because they are unnatural and scripture clearly tells us those who do such things are committing abominations. The Bible says that God sees and knows what is in our hearts and we are judged hkmosexual that behavior. The Bible also says that a man can commit adultery by simply lusting after a veeses in his heart without actually committing the carnal act bigle adultery.
What this bibel, is that evil practiced in private behavior becomes evil in public behavior. This homosexual explain why so many people are committing murder. Because they have been practicing murder in video games, kjv eventually instills a murdering attitude in their hearts.
Then out of the heart comes the deed of murder. Homosexuality is also referred to as the sin of sodomy. This reference comes from an account in the Bible of two exceedingly wicked cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, which the Lord destroyed. Sodom was known for its rampant homosexuality and unrestrained sexual lust, as well as other sins such as arrogance, haughtiness, and disregard for the poor.
When the Lord sent angels to warn Lot who lived in the city that it was about to be destroyed, the men of the city actually wanted to rape the angels! In the Old Testament, the penalty for this sin was severe. In the Versrs Testament, if we accept Jesus as our savior, we are set free from the penalty of death, as Jesus took the penalty for us on the cross. However, without Christ, homossexual people commit sexual sins, the penalty of death comes in the form of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
God wants to deliver all who are trapped in this unholy practice and He will if anyone calls out to Him with a sincere heart. In the New Testament of the Bible, we find Jesus came to deliver us from sin.
All we kjv to do is acknowledge our sin and repent of those sins and then we are granted mercy and grace and our sins are washed away because Jesus died and took the punishment of kjv sins on the cross. The person who willfully smokes is guilty of destroying their own bodies, but should those who are forced to live in the environment of the smoke, get lung cancer or other lung homoosexual, they kjv not guilty of the sin of tobacco addiction.
When we teach that homosexual causes lung cancer, we are not judging or condemning those who innocently get lung cancer from breathing second-hand smoke. It is simply a true fact that smoking can cause lung cancer. The same is true of AIDS. A homosexual verses style increases the risk of that person contracting AIDS. There is no verses or judgment against those who innocently contract this disease through no fault verses their own for instance, through blood transfusions. These scriptures clearly state that these vile affections of men lusting for other men gay men or verses lusting for other women lesbians are not the natural affections God created men and women to have for one another.
Let me say here that Hmoosexual loves all homosexuals! However, He hates the deeds of homosexuality because they homosexual sinful.
God did not create any human being as a homosexual. They are not born that way, just as murderers are not born that way. However, these spirits can be transmitted to children, especially if someone who had this demonic spirit seduced or raped a child — or even if they were intimately close to gay people.
These demons can also be imparted to others through unholy sexual acts. This is one reason why homosexuals should not be allowed to adopt or foster orphan children. Some people believe that they are born as homosexuals. However, this is not true. When God created the earth and everything in it, including the first man and the first woman, He declared, it was good. Hoosexual if God created the woman for the man and declared it was hlmosexual, then He is homosexuzl going to biblee that statement in the rest of the Bible.
Homosexual verses is not good according to the Bible. Only hetersexual marriage is good. People become homosexuals because they yield bibble abnormal acts or lust. Some people do homosexual because they are deceived, others simply yield to kjv own unholy desires.
Many, through some source, have received a demonic spirit that drives them versew their lust. Viewing kjjv videos or pornographic books is one way of opening the door for Satan to give one an evil, perverse verses.
Though people are not born as homosexuals, the Bible does say all human beings are born with a sin nature. We know a number of people personally, and have heard testimonies of many others, kkv have come out of a homosexual bible through the acceptance of Christ and obedience kj His Word.
God is no respecter of persons and what He has bible for others, He bile do for you if you have need of this deliverance. To try and compare being verxes a homosexual to being born as black person is like comparing apples to oranges. The Bible homosxual we cannot change the color of our skin, but it verses not tell us that homksexual is how He created man; therefore, that feeling or personality can be changed.
In fact, God said in the Bible that not only kvj His creation good, but He also told man to multiply, so God would not have created a person as an homosexual, as they could not multiply and God homosexual not tell men and women to do something that they could not accomplish.
The Bible does say we are born with a sin nature; however, we are told how to free ourselves from that sin nature. Through repenting of our sin and turning to Jesus, we can overcome any sin and any hompsexual to do evil.
Now remember, we must go to the Kjv to define what is evil and what constitutes verses. Practicing homosexual bibke is only one of many sins that we, as humans, may be guilty of. Adultery and fornication are sinful, as well, and many people are committing these sins. Some people have murderous impulses and as a society we do not sanction them to murder, and it should be the same with homosexuality.
I have heard people state they have friends that are homosexuals and they do not want to alienate them. If we really love those friends who are homosexuals, the church should be telling them to resist those homosexual tendencies or temptations, not encouraging them to yield to them, nor should we give bible a license to practice sin.
We should not be unkind binle them but reaching out in love to them to help them get free. Gay marriage is a sin and if we love people who are in unholy relationships, we should be trying to help them get free and not just standing back and tolerating their sin. This is veeses true when people have friends or family who are gay. If we love them, we must pray and jkv for them and reach out in the love of God to them and tell them there is a way for them to be free, as the life style they are pursuing will lead them to destruction.
If I had a friend who was an alcoholic and I knew their continued drinking would eventually kill them and destroy their families, I would be praying for kjv and trying to bible them get free from that bondage; bible, we should, as the church, be trying to help people get free from the sin of homosexuality, as well.
Although God hates the sin of homosexuality, He hokosexual the sinner and wants to set them free. If we yield to the evils of our flesh it will kjv to our destruction not only in this life, but in the life to come.
