What Does God Say About Homosexuality?

We've read enough about what the Presbyterians, the judges, the president and Hollywood thinks about homosexuality. What does the Bible say about it? In the end, He will have the final say after all. Unlike what "they" would us to think, the Bible says a lot about homosexuality and none of it is good. In the Old Testament in Leviticus 18:22 it clearly states, "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination." The word "abomination" according to Webster's means "extreme hatred and detestation." That's what God thinks about it. Leviticus 20:13 says, "If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them."

Just for clarification, the sin of homosexuality is the sin of sexual affection for a member of the same sex. The act of sex between two males is called Sodomy. That is why God destroyed Sodom in the Old Testament and exactly where we get that word. Of course, the homosexuals would have us to believe that God destroyed Sodom because of their "lack of hospitality."

1 Kings 14:24 says, "And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel."

Here are some more references to it in the Old Testament.

Deut 23:17 "There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel."

1 Kings 15:12 "And he took away the sodomites out of the land,…"

Job 36:14 "They die in youth, and their life ends among the perverted persons."

In the New Testament, it is mentioned in several places. One of them is in Romans 1:18-32, "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, (19) because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. (20) For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, (21) because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. (22) Professing to be wise, they became fools, (23) and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. (24) Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, (25) who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (26) For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. (27) Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; (29) being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, (30) backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, (31) undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; (32) who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

That is some pretty strong language. Did you notice that part which says that as a result of their sin they are "receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which is due"? Here are some recent statistics from the Family Research Institute which prove this point. "The average age of a homosexual man dying with AIDS is 39. The average age of gays dying of all other causes is 41. (The average heterosexual married man lives 75 years.) Only one percent of men who practice homosexual sex lives to be 65 or older."
