Is Homosexuality a Sin?
The Bible clearly teaches that homosexuality is a sin. There are several verses (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9) in the Bible that deal with this subject, and Romans 1:26-27 shows that it is one outcome of disobeying God. This passage states that when people continue in rebellion against God, disbelieving God and refusing the gift of salvation, God allows them to experience more fully the weight of sin and wickedness in order to show them the despair and hopelessness that life apart from God truly is. According to 1 Corinthians 6:9, those who indulge in homosexual desires will not “ inherit the kingdom of God.”


Common Misconceptions
Some people believe that those with homosexual desires are born homosexual, they can't help it and are therefore not responsible or are somehow excused. But the Bible teaches that sin is the cause of homosexuality. In Romans 1:24-27, it is clear that people make their own choices about how they will live, and when they consistently choose sinful lifestyles, they become more and more ingrained in sin. Although it is possible that some people are born with a tendency toward homosexuality, just as some people are born with a predisposition to alcoholism, violence or other traits, this does not excuse the individuals from obeying God's commands.

Christians sometimes sound as if they believe that homosexuality is somehow a greater sin than other sins. At least this is often what the homosexual community thinks is being said. In truth, homosexuality is no greater than any other sin. The Bible makes it clear that God hates all sin. James 2:10 states “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. When a person repents of (asks forgiveness and turns away from sin) homosexuality it will be forgiven by God, just as other sin is forgiven. For those who trust in Jesus Christ for their salvation and are struggling with homosexual feelings or any other sin, God also promises to make a way out of all temptations, to give strength to resist temptation or a way to escape it. (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Philippians 4:13)

  • hey Cary how can I get a copy of  coming out of homosexuality: New freedom for men and women?

  • How can a person struggling with homosexuality get help?

    • You can get help through many ways . . .

      • Getting closer to God through Jesus
      • Read the Bible and ask Him to speak to you through His word and Spirit
      • Pray and talk to God
      • Go to a Bible based church in your area and ask for support
      • Make "Christian" friends here and at church and ask others to pray for you and hold you accountable to God's word.
      • Read the Recommend Resources that I listed in the article above.

      Hope this helps. If you need anything else Shelman please don't hesitate to ask -- you are amongst brothers in sisters of Christ :)

    • A person struggling with sin and wanting help need but ask the Lord for help, and He will bring people and programs (?) into your life that can help you. I'm a counseling pastor and personally would like to talk on these things with you- just message me. There are also several agencies previously quoted in Brother Cary's writing on the subject. The point is, mainly, that if you open your eyes to the Grace and faithfulness of our Lord, all the help you need will come pouring into your life.

  • Brother Cary,  I want to thank you for posting this, especially the Bible references.  One of my nieces (not recognizing religion) asked me on 2 separate occasions why I was against same sex marriage and homosexuality.  The first time I did not answer, mainly due to the fact that I had attempted to use my Concordance and could find nothing (due mostly to my ignorance of what to look for).  The second time she did not only ask me on FB but she asked the general population.  By that time, I had read your article and knew where to find your references.  I responded to her first by giving her the references and explained that she needed to look them up.  I explained to her that I believed with my entire heart in the Bible and what it says, and though I make mistakes, I do my best to live it.  If I make a mistake, I explained to her that I asked GOD'S forgiveness and I know that I have been forgiven.  Once I explained to her that I believed these passages and that GOD most certainly did not make any mistakes, HE did not cause anyone to be "born that way", I was pounced on, not so much by her, though she did disagree with me, but others, friends of hers and her mother (my sister-in-law who I love dearly).  I didn't know how to respond to their responses, so I simply told them I would not argue about it, that if they were willing to read and then discuss it without anger, then I was there.  I did, however, tell my sis-in-law that regardless of her feelings or my niece's feelings or beliefs, I loved them and would continue to do so along with praying for them for all that I had been praying about and about this.  That is the way I left it.  I don't know if I handled it correctly or not, but I at least was given the Bible references by you to be able to give them to study. For that I thank you.

    • I believe you handled it the right way Terry and I'm very proud of you because I know God is proud of you :) The most important things you did was to be truthful to God's word and to be compassionate and loving. Many people will try and argue but as a Christian we cannot do that because there is NO VALUE of arguing in God's kingdom.
