What does the Bible say about homosexuality? Is homosexuality a sin?Subscribe to our Question of the Week homosexuality sin, homosexuality Bible Question: "What does the Bible say about homosexuality? Is homosexuality a sin?" Answer: The Bible consistently tells us that homosexual activity is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Romans 1:26-27 teaches specifically that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying God. When people continue in sin and unbelief, God “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin in order to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from God. 1 Corinthians 6:9 proclaims that homosexual “offenders” will not inherit the kingdom of God. God does not create a person with homosexual desires. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin (Romans 1:24-27) and ultimately because of their own choice. 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. If a person is born with a greater susceptibility to anger/rage, does that make it right for him to give into those desires? Of course not! The same is true with homosexuality. However, the Bible does not describe homosexuality as a “greater” sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God. Homosexuality is just one of the many things listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that will keep a person from the kingdom of God. According to the Bible, God’s forgiveness is just as available to a homosexual as it is to an adulterer, idol worshipper, murderer, thief, etc. God also promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Philippians 4:13).

Enough with your bullshit.
. . . Mr. Friday . . . that post really is golden.
I only have a filter for people who do not consistently beg to be belittled, ridiculed, insulted, and demeaned.
I may believe people, as a whole, should be treated fairly but I also believe those same people are idiots.
I thought the story goes Jesus died to forgive mankind of our sins.
Well, at least it mentions other sins equated to it. Here's a list of sins in the Bible:http://wogim.org/sinlist.htmI wonder why Christians don't hit so hard on all sins but just specific ones? Especially if they all mainly are equal to each other in how bad they are. Of course even the Bible doesn't seem to project them as equal since the one's Christians focus on are also focused on in the Bible.-Nam
