What does God say about homosexuality?

zxcThis post is going to be hard to do for several reasons. One of which is the fact that I could very well upset some people and possibly lose friends over. I don’t know if it will happen, but I feel the need to get this off my chest regardless of what others think.

To start off with, I’m getting so fed up with people calling us bible believing Christians “haters” for speaking out about homosexuality. Just because we say we don’t believe in the homosexual lifestyle it doesn’t mean we hate homosexual people. I really wish people would understand that instead of just accusing us of hating homosexual people. Most Christians will tell you that they don’t “hate” homosexual people, and that is probably true. I don’t hate homosexual people. I just don’t believe it is natural. It clearly says in the bible that it is an abomination and I understand why.
God created us, humans, to marry and pro-create which is to have children.

  • “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:27,28
  • “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Genesis 2:24

Clearly you can see that God created us male and female for a reason. It’s plainly obvious that two men or two women cannot have children together. It’s physically impossible.

Here is what God says about homosexuality. Please be aware that these are NOT my words, they are God’s. I am not the one condemning people or judging people for their lifestyles. I am merely trying to let people know what God says and to hopefully open people’s eyes to the truth. I am not doing this out of hatred for anyone. I am saying it because I care. There are serious repercussions for people who continue in this lifestyle and I just want to show people so they can, hopefully, turn their lives to God, repent, and be free.

  • “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22
  • “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.” Leviticus 20:13
  • “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 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. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Romans 1:26-32

Take note of what God says about abominations, ie homosexuality etc.

  • “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Revelation 21:7

God sees homosexuality as an abomination and the abominable end up in the “lake which burneth with fire and brimstone.”
It’s certainly not a place I want to end up, and I don’t want to see people I care about end up there either.
I can’t make anyone change their lifestyles, but I’m hoping that by reading this, someone will take notice and realise it is not ‘natural’ or ‘normal’ and no matter how many celebrities “come out”,  and no matter how many singers sing about how people are ‘born this way’, it does not make being homosexual right or natural.

The enemy is having an absolute field day by turning people away from their creator. He has made it so that the traditional family unit has disintegrated to almost nothing. Look how many people are divorced, children born out of wedlock, people working 7 days a week to earn more money for their toys, which in turn takes time away from their family..
The enemy has made sin look good and good look evil.

It really upsets me to see people spew such hatred out of their mouths about Christians who are merely trying to do as we are told, which is to spread the gospel and show people God’s word. Yes, a lot of people are full of hatred towards homosexual people and this is not right, certainly not from a Christian.
I am not doing this out of hate, I am doing it because I care. I don’t want to see good, decent, caring people go to the lake because they don’t want to listen to God’s word.

Please consider all I’ve said with an open mind and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

God Bless.

I feel the need to post this one last scripture: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;” 2 Timothy 3:1-4

  1. What is “natural” or not natural isn’t decided by belief, it’s decided by science. You can say homosexuality is not Christian or not following Christian principles, but not that it’s not natural.
    Natural means the collection of occurrences that happen and can be observed in nature. In that regard, homosexuality has been documented in nature in 1500 species.

    • Maybe I should have been more specific. I don’t believe it’s natural for people. (I used “natural” instead of the word ‘normal’ because I didn’t want to sound like I was being nasty, which I wasn’t.)
      It’s not how God created us. It goes against one of the very reasons He created us.

      • Narth is an anti-gay hate group that promulgates studies by a fraudster called Paul Cameron who had his licenses and membership in all official medical associations and psychological associations revoked.
        It’s interesting the you would mention pseudo-science to support your prejudices without doing proper research.

    • It is NOT natural nor is it healthy. You apparently are not concerned about your destination. Well, if this life is all you have got to look forward to …better pay attention to the risks involved in the here and now. Go to factsaboutyouth.com, a project of the American College of Pediatrics and read about the health risks of the homosexual lifestyle. (When the page comes up, click on ‘health risks’.) Gay and bisexual men lose up to 20 years life expectancy. “Common sexual practices among gay men lead to numerous STDs and physical injuries, some of which are virtually unknown in the heterosexual population. Lesbians are also at higher risk for STDs.” Open your mind and read all the serious health risks and then ask yourself, is it worth it to violate God’s natural order of creation? If this life is all you have, then I would think you would want to investigate these facts ‘decided by science’. If we truly love ‘gay’ people, we will tell them the truth, even if it goes against the political correct thinking of our day…even if we are called ‘haters’. Those who would encourage people in this lifestyle are the real haters, IMHO.

        • The information I referenced for you in my post above had nothing to do with Paul Cameron, whoever he is. It came from the medical community…from doctors who daily deal with the health consequences of the ‘gay’ lifestyle. You can choose to ignore the information, continue feed on the propoganda of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and go blissfully on your way…but time will prove who is right on the health risks associated with sexual practices which are contrary to God’s created order.

          • No, it didn’t come “from the medical community”. It came from a fraudulent study by Paul Cameron.

            Time and real science have already proved that you’re wrong. You’re peddling fraud and that’s disgustingly dishonest. It’s bad enough that there are con men coming up with this garbage it’s even worse when idiots spread it around.

          • I would ask that you please refrain from name calling. There is no need for it. Nobody has called you any names.
            It doesn’t matter what anyone says, you are going to disagree and argue.
            Are you a Christian by any chance?

          • That’s beside the point. The point is, I’ve specifically said I don’t want any name calling or abuse on here. It serves no purpose and only makes the person doing it look bad.
            If you so vehemently disagree with what is said on here, don’t read it.
            I am not going to change my stance on what I’ve posted, and I doubt many Christians would, especially when the person on the other side gets nasty and starts with the accusations and name calling.

          • pinkagendist: For some reason there is no reply button under your last post so I will reply here.I have never even heard of this Paul Cameron whom you are so obessed with. If you would take the time to go to factsaboutyouth.com and read the ‘About’ page, you will see this project is done by medical doctors. Their names are listed…no Paul Cameron.
            “The Facts (about youth) project makes no moral judgments about one’s sexual orientation. It presents a science-based perspective concerning the development of non-heterosexual attractions among school-aged children. It is from an interest in the optimum health and well-being of these children and adolescents that Facts operates. Its intent is to prevent their innocently wandering into a lifestyle that may not be of their choosing and that has been shown to carry serious health risks. For those older adolescents and adults who, after much personal reflection and without school encouragement or coercion, identify as homosexual, we offer no objection except to point out the health risks of this lifestyle.” So you see, this group is not passing moral judgment on the issue at all…just giving the scientific facts of the health risks. No agenda as you accuse.

    • pinkagendist,

      The Bible defines what is natural in Romans chapter 1, “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 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”. The word ‘natural’ in both verses is defined as ‘produced by nature, inborn’; we are born with the desire for opposite sex until we suppress the truth of God’s word and choose otherwise. Sexual behavior is a choice we all make, whether heterosexual , bisexual, homosexual, pedophilia, or bestiality. It is a choice made by the individual and acted out by that individual. Homosexuals act as though their choice in same sex activity is different than that of the heterosexual…not so. Christ clearly teaches in Matthew 15:19 where sin originates, ‘For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:these are the things which defile a man’. Heart means ‘the soul or mind, as it is the fountain and seat of the thoughts, passions, desires, appetites, affections, purposes, endeavours’. He speaks of all sexual sin, including homosexuality when He says ‘fornications’, which means ‘adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, intercourse with animals etc.’

      Almighty God has forbid homosexual sex, and all sex outside the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman {Genesis 2:24}; He is the creator of all things and He determines what laws apply….not man and his science.

      God has been gracious to me, he saved me from the bondage of lesbianism 10 years ago. Christ sacrificed Himself on the cross and rose from the dead to reconcile sinners back to God who is holy. I used to deny God and His sovereign rule until He poured out grace on me and opened my eyes to my sins against Him. You have no hope past this life, it is indeed a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. May He be merciful to you, may He be gracious and save you.

      • The bible is an archaic book written and compiled by ignorant middle easterners in a time when people barely lived beyond 30 years old.

        They were so ignorant they thought the earth was immobile and regularly died of food poisoning and other diseases we can now cure with a single pill.

      • Well said. I am with you all the way. Bless you for standing up for the Truth. God made Man then made woman to be with Man in the first instance, if God had intended man to procreate with man he would have done it a different way. But as procreation is part of the joining together of man and women to increase the population of the planet and thereby fulfilling his first commandment to mankind – to go forth and multiply – this would not have happened had it been two men or for that matter two women. God’s order and way fo living is the best way and only way for safety and healthy and for coming back to the Father with Joy and rejoicing in the knowledge that Gods Word is sound and is able to bring healing to both the mind and body, when you reach out to God and Trust His word and His precious Son Jesus/Yeshua there is nothing that cannot be accomplished when God is on our side. We are all created in Gods image and therefore we all have the way back to the Father inside each one of us, it is up to us when He calls you that you respond either positively to His call or negatively – if you choose to turn your back on God then the path is very clear it is death and destruction – as we can see througout history – when Man turns his back on God the whole of society goes into disarray – with wars, debauchery, whoremongering, witchcraft, devilworship, occult practices, drug addiction, and all the other addictions that are ungoldy. There is much in the Word of God to teach all mankind on how to treat his fellow man. The ten commandments are a good place to start and when you are checking out them you can see very clearly that when we fulfill Gods commandments there is no room for enemies, hatred of vile behaviour because we would all be treating each other as we would be wanting to be treated ourselves. God gave us His precious Son as our redeemer and Gave us His teachings and Yeshua followed HIs fathers teachings so that we would have a perfect example to follow. Gods word is TRUE AND CAN BE TRUSTED. I would not trust anyone that would come with any other doctrine that that which is in the Word of God, not even those in the pulpit who are offering a different path to that which is laid down by Christ and His disciples and the prophets of old. If by following Gods word is seen a stupid in the eyes of the world – that is just as Christ said it would, we have nothing to fear because the way has already been made very clear – death and destruction to those who chose to live any other way other than Gods way.

  2. Thank you for taking a stand and a risk to speak the truth. There are so many beliefs out there that have separated people from the God who created and loves them. It is sad to watch our society melt away; its populace chasing after what ever seems right to them at that moment. We are warned that this will happen, everyone doing what is right in their own eyes and we see its effect. Sad they are missing out on knowing God – the one true love – Christ who died to give them forgiveness and knowledge of the mighty Creator and Father.

    Greater love have no man than this; that a man lay down his life for a friend. John 15:13

      • Pink, you will find out which God, there is one true God. You may be very intellectual, (The Bible says “futile in your thoughts”) but God will have the final say.

        For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 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, 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.
        Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Romans 1:18-23

        • The bible also says a lot of other garbage, like that the earth is immobile, that someone lived in a whale and some people live for hundreds of years. Fortunately science demonstrates all of those things are ridiculous.
          Christianity is a con-job used by pastors and churches to make money off of gullible people.

          • You can choose what you want to choose. I cannot and will not try to force you to change your mind. Only the Holy Spirit can do that.
            I choose, after a life of not believing, to believe in God and the bible.
            For many years I was into tarot cards, drinking, partying, and even wicca. Thankfully, the Lord eventually led me out of that self-destructive lifestyle and chose me. I will be eternally grateful for his grace and mercy.
            I only hope you can find the same. 🙂

          • So you went from believing in one form of superstition (tarot) cards to another form of superstition (christianity). They are equally forms of superstitious nonsense.
            If you need a superstition to make yourself behave in a positive and productive way, you’re passing the buck and not taking responsibility for your own actions.

          • If this is your opinion, and truly, that’s all it is, then why do you frequent Christian blogs? What is your purpose, after all, no true follower of Christ is going to be persuaded by your man-made opinions to leave Christ. The God of the Bible has given you proof of His existence, it is in His creation; the majestic mountains, the rivers, lakes and streams, the stars, the moon, the sun, the rainbow in the stormy sky, the changing of the seasons, the birth of all life, the provision for and maintaining of all that you can see. If God were to stop the rain, shut up the skies and withhold His grace, food would cease to grow, water would evaporate, and all of mankind would perish. If God were to withdraw His sustaining power, your very breath would leave you and you would fall to the ground…lifeless. You are who God speaks to directly when He says ‘A fool says in his heart, ‘there is no God!’ Psalm 14:1. Sinful pride causes sinners to vehemently deny a Creator, therefore sinners foolishly think they will not be held accountable because there is no God who rules over them. Sadly, you are in horrific error. Your argument is NOT against those who defend the God of the Bible, your argument is against God Himself. You will indeed get your chance to stand before Him, and when you do, your arrogance and ignorance will be seen as such.

      • There is only one real God. Hindus, Muslims, Persians etc all worship/ed false gods. Possibly they are demonic personalities that started off a lot of what they believe but still not the real and true living God.

        Not everyone will believe in Him and many will ridicule those that follow Him (even other so-called believers).

        The reason one so many people fight tooth and nail to ignore, reject, or disprove the Judeo-Christian God, is because the notion of them being accountable for their life and what they do is terrifying and undesirable. They will fight and argue and complain that it is unfair to say homosexuality is wrong or that believe that sex should be only for marriage is prudish, or that abortion is a woman’s right to do as she pleases. It is all just rebellion against what is actually right and written on the heart of man.

        They will find out one day that everything the Bible said is true and it will be too late by then. The same as those misguided muslim hijackers who flew planes into buildings and killed thousands – they now know that the Christian God is real and that they believe in a false god before without any power. It is too late now for them.

          • Pink, we can’t allow the lies of men done in the name of God determine whether or not He is real. He is. I for one no longer attend church because of the things going on inside them. That is my decision. However, the false teachings and lies of these people has not caused my faith to falter. In fact, I have a greater understanding of the bible and of my Lord than I did when I attended church on a regular basis. This is because I search and the Lord meets me in my need to know Him thru His word and the power of prayer.

            You said – Judeo Christian god? That’s a contradiction. Either the Jews are right or the Christians are right. They can’t both be correct.

            Jesus Christ came to earth as the Messiah for the Jews. Many rejected Him and still do to this day. However, many others believed and were later given the name “Christians”. One day the eyes of the Jewish people will be opened and they will see the truth. It isn’t a matter of who is right, it is a matter of faith, of belief.

            There are many scriptures in the bible that are twisted by people who do not understand and used as a way to prove fallacy. Repentance and careful study of the word removes this way of thinking. The Lord is faithful to all who call on Him and thru Him will be saved.

          • There are 38,000 Christian denominations, that means the odds are that 37,999 to one of a Christian choosing the right one.
            If we take into account individuals interpreting on their own the odds of being wrong are even higher.

          • “There are 38,000 Christian denominations, that means the odds are that 37,999 to one of a Christian choosing the right one.
            If we take into account individuals interpreting on their own the odds of being wrong are even higher.”

            And you are basing truth of the Most High God on man’s presumed statistics? None of this impresses me. I know first hand what has been done in the name of God. Denominations are the result of people not studying the bible, but listening to men and women tell them what it says. This is not the way of it.

          • I’m questioning the statistical probability of an interpretation being correct for a book that can be interpreted in so many different ways.
            How can you know your interpretation is correct? After all I’m sure you’ve seen some people mould what they read to suit their agenda.

          • Pink, the bible isn’t all that hard to understand. It is accomplished thru the power of God thru the leading of the Holy Spirit, as Jesus taught in John 14, 15, 16. His leading blows false teaching right outta the water. It is a matter of context and intent, understanding the bible as a whole, not pulling it apart and using bits and pieces that sound good and fit my agenda at the moment. Read John 1. This is Jesus – it is amazing – He is the Word. 🙂

        • Absolutely dead right. God said, You shall have no other gods before me. Therefore God is fully aware that people have believed in other gods, these being the fallen angels that were kicked out of heaven – were sent down to earth along with Lucifer the devil, He being the adversary – the deciver of mankind. As God quite rightly pointed out that “if they will not obey my words and hear my words and follow me, then I will cause them to be in madness and they will be led to believe a great lie. For me when i have read Deut. I have had great blessings in realising that Gods word is powerful and without his blessing of His word and His commandments and His truth, then the world will be lost which is not what God intended, but God knows even that there are many who will not believe nor trust nor turn from their sinful lifestyles.
          It is such a shame when you read Revelations and see that there is coming a judgment on people who have chosen to turn their backs on God and the punishment is death and destruction and eternal damnation in the lake of fire.
          Perhaps becuase the so called “churches” have drifted into sleep that there is not one out here preaching as the Word is and How God and What Gods has said that now we who are women who are being encouraged by Gods Spirit to stand up and be counted and share the gospel as it is written no matter how much it hurts others to read it. As Jesus pointed out when he was here that there are those that are going to stumble over the very stone that can give them life. Christ gave his life for Us – He is the Word of God, He was and is and forever shall be at the right hand of the Father. Believe me, when I say I have trusted God to take care of me for over 30 years and He has never let me down, he has always led me to His presence and His peace and His joy no matter what life has thrown at me. Stand Up For Jesus and His Word You will not suffer loss, because God said that No weapon that is formed against you will prosper because He Himself will cut it down. He made the universe and everything in it. Even the disbelieving ones he created, remember God created those that were to be for honour, dishonour, some to live some to be destroyed, God knows those who will follow Him.

  3. Your use of “natural” was exactly right, and Biblical, which is truth.

    For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the NATURAL use for what is AGAINST NATURE.
    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.

    Romans 1:26-27

  4. I don’t necessarily agree that homosexuality is a “mental disorder”. I believe, from what I have seem gay people say, that a majority of them have been either sexually abused or mentally/emotionally abused by someone very close to them. In tragic circumstances like this, I believe it opens a doorway for the enemy to creep in and take root in a person’s life. Usually, from what I can tell, a spirit of homosexuality. So in that instance, yes, a person can be healed from the spirit through prayer, possibly fasting, but most of all, a genuine desire to turn their life around and follow God, the creator. Not these false gods that you speak of which were made by men.

    If you look at allah, he was just a man who allegedly received messages from an angel, which is what that particular religion is based on. A man made religion that follows a paedophilic moon god who married various young girls, as young as 6.
    Also, one who commands that people who do not follow/believe in him should be beheaded.
    Buddhism is also man made.
    So is Scientology and the list goes on. I won’t continue to bore you with facts that you probably already know, so I will end by saying that I believe in the bible, I will stand with the bible and I hope that you can somehow see the truth. It’s right there in the bible, in black and white.

  5. We start with what the Bible says, and go from there. It is sin. Unmarried heterosexual couples having sex are sinning. Sex outside of heterosexual marriage is sin. I am saying this now, in a relatively free country, because I do not believe I will have the freedom to say this in the future.

  6. For you ‘Pinkagendist’…

    ‘God is essentially invisible. “He dwells in the light which no man can approach unto, whom no man has seen, nor can see.” (1 Tim. 6:16.) When, therefore, he would make himself known to the sons of men, it must be by his works or by his words. The first way of making his power and glory known is beautifully unfolded in Psalm 19—”The heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or a word; their voice is silent in the skies; yet their message has gone out to all the earth, and their words to all the world.” This is the testimony which God gave of himself to the Gentile world, but which, through the depravity of man’s heart, has been universally misunderstood, perverted and abused, as the Apostle speaks—”since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.” (Rom. 1:19-21.)’ – J.C. Philpot
    Suppressing truth and verbally denying that truth hardens a heart and leads to darkness; if you only knew the terror of where such darkness leads!

  7. Bottom line is that it is the word of God for man and woman to be together and not man to man and woman to woman. Believe what you want. You heard the truth but if you refuse this truth then you will face God alone when you stand before him and then you will know truth for sure
