Is Homosexuality A Sin? What Did Jesus Say?

“Is THIS what God calls ‘good’?”

Is this the new building block for CIVILIZATION?
Is this the new building block for CIVILIZATION?

First, I do not believe there is such a thing as a homosexual community. I believe there is such a thing as a community that practices homosexuality. While the point seems minor, it is an important delineation. Is it possible that the tiniest fraction of the human population is curious or drawn to these practices? Perhaps. After all, animal populations show this deviation. But not in the percentages that the human population is now displaying. And we are NOT mere animals. We are soulful beings with minds & hearts to go along with our physical bodies. And we belong to a Maker to whom we owe obedience. Regardless of our personal desires or temptations. God states very clearly that he detests homosexual practices. This is stated clearly in both the Old and New Testaments. And while most homosexuals deny that Jesus spoke against the practice, he did. Jesus specifically defined marriage as between a man and a woman. NOT because of historical ‘norms’ that need special interpretation in today’s culture- but because God created us as man and woman. No historic or cultural understanding needed.

(Matt 19:3-9) “3 Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” 4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’[a] 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” 7 “Why then,” they asked, “did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?” 8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

This passage makes it clear that ALL sex outside of marriage was sinful. And marriage can only be a man and a woman. Thus, homosexuality is automatically outside the bounds of marriage and thus, sinful in Jesus’ eyes.

I believe this is why you will almost always find that those who practice homosexuality also claim that either God is non-existent or that the Apostle Paul & Timothy (who wrote most of the New Testament and condemned this practice) was a false prophet. They fail to take Jesus’ rather clear statement into account.

Guess what? Since God is King, he sets the rules. After all, people are also tempted to cheat on their spouses, steal, lie, kill, etc. And because God forbids it, we don’t get to do it. Practicing homosexuality is the same- God said, “No.” So the answer is no!

If this community was not ashamed of their behavior, why are they all so interested in negating the Bible’s words on the matter? Why, if they are so convinced that God approves of their behavior, can’t they exist peaceably with Jesus and those who follow him? Why the rabid hate?

As for Gay Marriage, I view this as purely political. It is a means used by Progressives to destroy the family unit. Why? Because the FAMILY unit is the number one way that any society can properly teach, disperse resources and raise functional and independent citizens. Wreck this and you will get a new population that will be mentally crippled and dependent on Uncle Sam for everything. This is the number one goal of the Progressive movement: to gain complete power over its citizens by making them dependent on it for basic needs.

And Gay Adoption? This is purely and simply child abuse. In every way possible way. Sexual identity and sexual role modeling are almost 100% learned in the home as children soak in everything between their parents. They decide what they want to be as a man or woman and what they don’t want to be- all by watching their parents’ interactions. Uncle Bob or Auntie Kathy will NOT be able to put in the face time to fill this role in any child’s life. Without this type of daily learning, a child must struggle terribly to understand themselves as a man or as a woman. As sexual identity is one of the most important ways in which we define ourselves, I believe this is intentional child abuse and should NEVER be allowed. Are there children whose parents have died? Yes, and it’s very tragic & tough for those kids. But why would we intentionally put children in this situation? Adoption rules are extremely strict- they discriminate on income, home cleanliness, education & age. Homosexuality should also be a discriminatory factor.Many, many lukewarm Christians have never read their Bible and so are not armed properly for spiritual warfare. Thus, they condone that which they should not. They actually help satan destroy souls- and our country. Many will claim (because they heard it somewhere- kinda like ‘separation of church & state’) that the Old Testament Law is DEAD. Completely false. That is about the most irresponsible paraphrase of Apostle Paul’s deep thoughts concerning Jewish laws that made people DO rituals to make themselves righteous before God again. He merely stated that the old rules about sacrifices, cleansing rituals, eating rituals, priesthood rituals, etc, were no longer necessary because Jesus was the final sacrifice that would clean us and make us righteous before God. Jesus’ body & blood were so far more superior as a sacrifice to God than any number of beef shanks or birds, or cups of wheat could ever be. His sacrifice of himself was so magnificent in God’s eyes that it SUFFICED for all of us, for all time. THAT was Paul’s point. NOT that the entire Old Testament, which displays God’s personality and views on moral/ immoral behavior, is somehow negated! Jesus was EXTRA clear on the matter when he said,

“17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

Thus all Old Testament laws and statements that judge homosexual sex as sinful remain standing as they had nothing to do with purification or priesthood rites to obtain righteousness before God. In addition, IF the Old Testament ‘Law’ were all dead, so would the ten commandments be. Nonsense.

And here are the laws about homosexuality written in several books of the Old and New Testaments:

Romans 1:18-32 “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 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 people 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. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Timothy 1: 8-11 8 But we know that the law is good if a man use it lawfully,
9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 for whoremongers, for those who defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjurers, and for whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine
11 according to the glorious Gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

Leviticus 20:13 13“‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

Leviticus 18:20-29 20 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife and defile yourself with her.
21 “‘Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.
22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.
24 “‘Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. 25 Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. 26 But you must keep my decrees and my laws. The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, 27 for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. 28 And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you.
29 “‘Everyone who does any of these detestable things—such persons must be cut off from their people.

Duet 22:5 5 A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this..

Judges 19:22-24 22 While they were enjoying themselves, some of the wicked men of the city surrounded the house. Pounding on the door, they shouted to the old man who owned the house, “Bring out the man who came to your house so we can have sex with him.”
23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, don’t be so vile. Since this man is my guest, don’t do this outrageous thing.

1Kings 15:11-13 1 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.
12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol and burned it by the Brook Kidron.

2 Kings 23:4-7 4 And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels that were made for Baal and for the Asherah pole and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
5 And he put down the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places round about Jerusalem, those also who burned incense unto Baal, to the sun and to the moon and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.
6 And he brought out the Asherah pole from the house of the Lord outside Jerusalem unto the Brook Kidron, and burned it at the Brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people.
7 And he broke down the houses of the sodomites that were by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Asherah pole.

  1. Hello, hope you’re having a good day.

    I’d like to inquire specifically about your views on gay adoption. You state that having gay parents is akin to child abuse because children get views from their parents, which would make them gay and therefore sexually deviant, correct?

    Not only is this inaccurate, overlooking the fact that gay parents often raise straight children (and that straight parents raise gay children), you also state that allowing gay parents to adopt is intentional child abuse in that it causes children to have no good role models. I just can’t wrap my head around what you’re trying to say here- are all gay people absentee parents? Are gay people nonexistent, perhaps? Would a gay parent, ultimately, be worse for a child than a straight parent that happens to be abusive or addicted to drugs? Are they unable to teach their children morals, and therefore, are all sinners unable to properly teach their children? “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard,” says Paul in Romans 3. So in your view, nobody is worthy of raising children, since all humans sin and are therefore abusers and bad role models?

    “You may think you can condemn such people, but you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself.” This verse in Romans 2 might have been referring to Jews, but it applies here as well. Sin is not ranked in levels, there is no sin that will make someone more or less evil than other people, and therefore a homosexual parent would be just as sinful as you yourself, since all humans commit sin.

    You can’t just focus on one sinful action in this view. Either all sins invalidate all humans as parents, since all commit sin, or homosexuals should be allowed to adopt because one type of sin does not make them more unworthy of being parents than others who also commit sin. Make up your mind.

    • Hi Izzy, If your logic about the Bible was valid concerning sin, then there could be no qualifications for any parents who wish to adopt children at all. We should just let any drug abusing, illiterate, no income, sexually deviant, homeless person adopt children, right? After all, sin is sin, according to the Bible under your understanding of it, right? In fact, why should we even have laws where we punish anyone for anything, according to you and your understanding of that Bible verse? Why should be put thieves in jail? After all, we are all sinners, right? We should put all of us in jail, right? Isn’t that what that verse means?

      Clearly, something is wrong with your interpretation, don’t you think?

      Izzy, you are misinterpreting the Bible quite severely. Every human is covered in sin- that is our NATURE. However, we create LAWS of society that dictate which sins must be punished BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE SEVERE THAN OTHERS. Our laws form a justice system which is upheld by Paul in Romans 13 (below) when he said that kings are God’s servants in that they met out ‘justice’ on this earth. This is one way that God pays back ‘revenge’ for our sins.

      “1Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. 4For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.”

      Thus, there is the matter of our inherent sin which must be resolved through the blood of Christ and then there are our ACTIONS on earth which can also be governed through God’s ministers on earth which is the government and its LAWS.

      You are trying to conflate the issue by saying they are one and the same.

      Obviously, they are not. We must have some form of order in our society. That order must DEFINE THE BEST OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR, not the worst. That is the very definition of law. Even God’s law. Thou shalt not steal, kill, commit adultery, etc. Our laws are based on God’s laws. Of course, our laws can’t measure the sins of the mind and spirit. They can only control those of action. Now, when it comes to adoption, we must likely set laws that will provide the BEST situation for babies, not the worst. It is based on this assumption that I call gay adoption inherent child abuse. I base this on basic science and logic. The overwhelming number of babies will be heterosexual. Therefore, they need guidance on how to develop into heterosexual adults. Homosexual parents CAN’T provide that- BY THEIR INHERENT BEING. That’s just a fact. Thus, one of the most basic needs of the child can’t be met in that household. That is even more important than whether the couple can provide a nice home. And yet, the ability to provide a nice, clean home is one of the reasons an adoption agency can deny a couple adoption rights. Did you know that Korean agencies can deny adoption to Americans if the couple is overweight? Adoption agencies also cut off a couple based on age, income level, education level, etc. There are so many reasons that various countries and adoption agencies can discriminate against a couple. And why? Because the situation is deemed as less than ideal for the rearing of a child. So, I ask you, how can the lack of proper sexual role modeling not be one of them?

      While people want to give ‘rights’ to the adult couple who want the child, are their rights more important than the rights of the poor baby whose life is about to be ruined? No. Emphatically no. And it is incredibly selfish of the couple to demand it. But then again, I have only ever seen incredible selfishness from the gay community. They seem only to think of themselves. The logic of this argument is rock solid but they don’t want to hear it because it stands in the way of THEIR happiness. They want a baby like they want a puppy. Whether or not the baby will be ok is of no consequence to them. Science be damned. What can I say?

  2. John 8:7 (Jesus is even talking about sexual immorality here, how dandy is that), “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Unless you are perfect, and have never sinned, you have no right to comment on someone else’s lifestyle, especially as it doesn’t affect you in any way, unless someone else being gay suddenly means that your Christ-centered marriage (if you are married) is no longer valid. Whether or not homosexuality is a sin is for God to judge when the time comes, not for you to decide and not for you to degrade a whole society that is part of our world today.
    Thank you from An LGBT+ accepting Christian🙂

    • Hi Jasmine, what you are saying is that as Christians, we should never speak about sin. At all. Ever. That we should just go about our lives and never address the sins of this world. We should never condemn murder. We should never condemn greed. We should never condemn adultery. We should never condemn molestation of children. We should never condemn rape. We should never condemn mass suicide. We should never condemn massive government corruption. We should never condemn mass genocide. We should not condemn the Holocaust. We should not condemn Pol Pot’s regime. We should not condemn the terrorists that flew their planes into the twin towers and made people jump to their deaths below. We should not condemn parents that starve their children. …

      Are you getting the picture? What you are saying is not valid. You want it to be valid in order to suit your wish to live a happy go lucky Christian life. Unfortunately, as Christians, we do bear a responsibility to point out the sins of our world. We don’t do this to condemn or judge, but to instruct. My article is to correct a grave misunderstanding in our culture. It is to give biblical evidence of the truth that concerns all Christians, even you. Where do I condemn?

      Now, you say you ‘accept’ LBGT lifestyles even in the face of God’s and Jesus’ words? Then you defy your own King. And that is on you. I fear for you. But as you say, that is between you and Jesus.

    • Hi Jasmine, scriptures (all scripture is God-breathed) on sexual immorality are as clear as the sun in the summer sky; it IS sin. Throughout the Old and New Testament, God chose prophets and His people to condemn sin & preach repentance in love, to trust and obey Him, and to follow the One whom He has sent (Jesus, who was and IS the Word of God). Christians are not to sit idle but to stand and deliver the truth God gave us through the Word, not condemn the person but the SIN. I’m content that God has that righteous position to judge, and we will all give an account. It’s not cruel to warn impending danger with correction, but rather cruel to not warn. It’s true love that cares enough in the face of adversity. Remember, Jesus said to the sinning woman, “Then neither do I condemn YOU. Go now and leave your life of sin.”

  3. Hi Susan,
    I’m looking to raise a few issues I have with this post of yours. I would like to start by stating that I am a Christian who has no issues with the LGBT+ community as I believe that God calls us to love and accept everyone regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation.
    Firstly, do you wear jeans? Or shorts? Or have you ever worn a cotton dress or shirt with leather shoes? Have you ever eaten shrimp?
    If you wish to take the Bible word for word in it’s interpretation with no relation to today’s society and values (and likely no regard for the context) then Deuteronomy 22:5 states that, “A woman must not wear men’s clothing.” Therefore, if you have ever worn anything other than a dress or a skirt, you have sinned.
    Leviticus 19:19 (also mentioned in Deuteronomy 22:11) says, “Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.” Every outfit you have worn and will ever wear must be the same material, or you have sinned.
    I am bringing these points up to highlight how many Old Testament laws, including those condemning homosexuality are quite outdated in today’s society.
    If you wish to believe that all Old Testament laws must be taken without interpretation, then God says that all sins are equal in his eyes, and so, if you believe that homosexuality is a sin, then you are just as bad. I am not saying that I am perfect, for I know that I have sinned and have asked God for forgiveness and for his grace.
    In the New Testament, Jesus says (in regards to sexual immorality) in John 8:7, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Therefore, you may only judge and condemn those who may be gay if you are perfect and had never sinned in your life. Unfortunately, God says that no one but him is perfect and by result, you cannot cast a stone at the “sins” of homosexuality.
    As well as this, Jesus mentions (in Matthew 19: 11-12) how “some are eunuchs because they were born that way.” In this time period, the word eunuch referred to someone who was either castrated, someone who was celibate, or someone who “had many feminine, emasculate qualities…. These men had little to no interest in sexual relations with females.” (religioustolerance.org) In the context of this passage, Jesus is talking about groups of people who are excused from heterosexual marriage. He is accepting them and even saying that they were born that way and therefore made that way by God.
    Therefore, Jesus doesn’t condemn those who are gay, but rather says that they are natural and a part of the kingdom of God. He also says that someone who has sinned may not judge others.
    I appreciate your view on this topic and I hope that you take my view to heart. Thank you.

    • Jasmine, I appreciate you effort in this matter. I’ve heard it many, many times before. Your entire argument is that you feel that I and others like me fail to take into account the context around the verses I brought up in my article. But you are gravely mistaken, Jasmine. There really are times when context is important when interpreting the Word of God. I think the full richness of the Word can only be understood by understanding the culture in which the Word was given. That being said, I also believe that most of the Bible is culture independent. But you are right, some verses must be seen in context. Now, you want to bring up these three verses.

      You said, “If you wish to take the Bible word for word in it’s interpretation with no relation to today’s society and values (and likely no regard for the context) then Deuteronomy 22:5 states that, “A woman must not wear men’s clothing.” Therefore, if you have ever worn anything other than a dress or a skirt, you have sinned.
      Leviticus 19:19 (also mentioned in Deuteronomy 22:11) says, “Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.” Every outfit you have worn and will ever wear must be the same material, or you have sinned.”

      and, ” Jesus mentions (in Matthew 19: 11-12) how “some are eunuchs because they were born that way.”

      Let’s take them one by one, shall we? As to the women dressing like men. Where your argument fails is to state that dresses are for women and pants are for men. When this was written, no one wore pants. Everyone wore ‘dresses’. They all wore robes. So, that’s clearly not what is meant. It meant, whatever is understood to be ‘male’ clothing vs. whatever is understood to be ‘female’ clothing. And I’m quite sure this crosses cultures. I believe this equates to cross dressing, not specifically pants. As I said, pants and jeans didn’t even exist then- so your example is meaningless. This is yet another confirmation that God intended the sexes to be different- male and female. Even from the beginning, people were having same sex relationships and men were acting and dressing like women. This was displeasing and angering to God even then and so, is addressed even in the early Bible. This shows how old God’s feelings on these matters are.

      In the second verse you brought up concerning the mixed types of materials. Neither you nor I can understand the cultural context of this command and thus, I don’t think either of us can speak to it. I don’t understand why that was considered a sin back then. I don’t know what it represented to the culture then. It must have represented something sinful to do that back then and so, God forbade it. If we could understand the cultural significance of what wearing two mixed materials meant back then, then we could understand what it might equate to today. But since we are clueless (unless you know more about the culture and can enlighten us?), we must remain unenlightened. But I do know that it really has nothing to do with actually wearing certain materials because of what Apostle Paul told us. Also what Jesus told us. Works don’t save us. Rituals don’t save us. Voo-dooh and magic don’t save us. Wearing certain fabrics won’t save us. Thus, that can’t be the meaning of the text. Furthermore, even if it was a ‘religious’ practice that was instituted by God as part of his impossible LAW, then Christ freed us from the rituals of the Law, but not from the morality of it. It is not a sin to wear different fabrics today. Thus, it is not a sin to wear different fabrics.

      As to the food you bring up- ie, shrimp. That was abolished by two things: first, by Jesus when he said, “11 What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” 12 Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?” 13 He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. 14 Leave them; they are blind guides.If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” 15 Peter said, “Explain the parable to us.” 16 “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. 17 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? 18 But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. 20 These are what defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them.”

      Why do you think the Pharisees were offended? Because they adhered to the Law. They believed ALL KINDS of foods and behaviors could make a person unclean and therefore, Jesus’ claim that nothing that was put into the mouth could make a person unclean was absurd! blasphemy! But Jesus knew the difference. HE had come to free us all from the LAW. He came to fulfill it utterly and thus, lift the terrible burden of it from our shoulders. We begin to LIVE in freedom with Christ.

      But, Jasmine, don’t believe for ONE MOMENT that we are freed from the MORALITY of the law. All that was defined as sin is still a sin. But the ritual is gone. The cleanliness requirements are gone. The food requirements are gone because they had everything to do with cleanliness. Anything to do with sacrificing is gone. Why? Because the final cleansing and sacrificing has been fulfilled by Jesus! The priesthood is done! Because Jesus is the final and ultimate priest!

      But Jesus said that he didn’t come to CHANGE the law, not even one pen-stroke- he just came to utterly fulfill it. So, what could be fulfilled is fulfilled. But God’s commands concerning sexual immorality is not something that can be ‘fulfilled’, is it, Jasmine? No. That is just a definition of sin that he gave. It is moral guidance. And it is still valid. And I have written an article here that gives you both God’s and Jesus’ words on the matter. And they are in context both to their time and to today’s time. Where is the cultural context that is missing in your mind? It was wrong then and it is wrong now.

      Your Lord Jesus tells you this, “17“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” – Jesus Christ, the Son of God recorded in Matt 5.

      Jasmine, I hope you see that I have taken your arguments seriously. I am your sister in Christ and so, love you. I am not hateful and don’t hate those who have fallen into this homosexual lifestyle. I write what I write in order to help them. I also write to help Christians who don’t understand what their Father in Heaven and what their Lord in Heaven has already instructed on this matter. There are many liars and yes, haters, in this world who might mislead. I wanted to give real proof, from the Bible. This is to give people real choices, eyes wide open. The number one question I get is, “What did JESUS say about homosexuality?” Many people considering this lifestyle have been lied to. they have been taught that Jesus was silent on this topic, but he wasn’t. I want them to have the truth before they decide. Most are extremely young when they make their first foray into this lifestyle. Did you know that young people who begin a homosexual lifestyle are four times more likely to have been sexually molested? (Boys, by men and girls, also by men) Did you know that they become sexually active years earlier than heterosexuals- as early as 13 years old? Again, due to sexual abuse? Did you know that youngsters, if left alone, will almost 100% naturally choose heterosexuality even if they were curious earlier? If this is a true stat (and the John Hopkins recent report says that it is), then all this social pressure and ‘encouragement’ is actually leading young teens purposely into a population group that is fourteen times more likely to kill itself than the rest of the population?

      Why would we push people into a population that by all stats, is so very unhappy? I know you probably don’t believe me, but the study is a medical one done by John Hopkins. It was released this year. Another study was released by Denmark which shows the same results. And they are very accepting of homosexuality. It is just an unhappy lifestyle. Heterosexuals are just happier. If this is so, then leave kids alone. Don’t celebrate and encourage troubled, young teens to gain popularity in school by ‘outting themselves’ and having early sex just to prove themselves. It is very troubling to me, Jasmine.

      You may feel you are doing good in your life. But your emotion of ‘loving’ may actually be doing great harm to people. Have you considered that God might know the human body, mind and soul better than you? Better than your friends or even society? Maybe he knows what truly makes us happy? Maybe he doesn’t just make ‘rules’ about sexuality to be mean, but because he knows what truly makes people happy? People always think they know better than God. But you must grow up and realize that God really does know the pots he created.

  4. I shared this on FB and I was called a hater,a bigot and a few other unnecessary names. A family member recently told me he was bisexual and has been for a few years, I had no idea. I’m surprised so many friends and relatives are ok with it. It truly grosses me out by the thought of it. Most people who know me shouldn’t be surprised by my Christian values and where I stand with it. I spoke with the person that recently told me they were gay (grandson) and told him that I love him and accept him but I can’t agree with his life style when it goes against Gods word. He understood but it has definitely changed our relationship and of course my relationship with one that side with a gay lifestyle. I’m still shocked, hurt and angry, wanting to blame someone. Any advice?

    • Jesus was called ‘Satan’, Joyce. And all he did was heal the sick, raise the dead and bring the good news to people. He told us that we, as his followers, would also be called, ‘satan’. He told us that if they killed and persecuted him, we should expect the same. In case you don’t read your bible, let me give you his words so that you can have comfort:

      “16“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

      21“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 22You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 23When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

      24“The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how much more the members of his household!

      26“So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. 28Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.b 30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

      32“Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.

      34“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35For I have come to turn

      “ ‘a man against his father,
      a daughter against her mother,
      a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
      36a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’c
      37“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

      40“Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. 42And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.” – Matt 10

      As you can see, Jesus knew we would have this type of reaction when we told the truth about God and Jesus. But he also said he would bless those who preached in his name and curse those who failed to acknowledge him. Joyce, there is no one to blame except Satan and of course, the people who treated you badly. Each of them is responsible for their own actions. If they are Christians, then they are doubly to blame as they are supposed to love you even more as a brother and sister in Christ. But the very best way to handle this is to rest in the comfort of WHY you shared the article. I’m sure you shared it because you cared about the people in your life and even about strangers. That is why I wrote the article. I wanted to instruct, not condemn. So many people in our country and culture believe that only the Old Testament said something about homosexuality. But that’s not true. The New Testament does also. AND Jesus does too. It’s critical for people, believers and non believers, to be equipped with the TRUTH before they make their choice to sin. That is why I wrote the article and I’m sure that’s why you shared it. It was done in love, not hate. Rest in comfort. That is the refuge I take when I encounter false accusations online. Only God knows my heart- and he knows I blog out of love. HIS opinion is the only one that matters, Joyce. It took courage to share the article. Someday, someone will thank you for it.

  5. Thank you. I was beginning to worry about the immorality of society and how it is corrupting our youth. I have children and trying to raise them to believe and follow the path of God (as it is my responsibility to do so). But when you have schools and society teaching them differently, and teaching them that their parents are wrong, it proves difficult.
    Anyhow, thank you.

    • you are welcome! It’s important to know that this subject is addressed in the New Testament and also by Jesus. Many try to say that it is only addressed in the Old Testament and therefore, is ‘no longer valid’. Then, some try to say that ‘only Paul, who wasn’t a true Apostle’ said something about it in the New Testament, and so, it is not valid. So, I wrote this article to show that it is in the Old, the New and that Jesus himself addressed it. The facts need to be out in order to properly instruct and so that those considering this lifestyle can make the informed choice.

  6. I know you probably will not post this but I stumbled upon this website from facebook and Im bothered. Im a gay male but do not act as the men in the picture you posted. I was raised that homosexuality was a sin and believed it. I wasnt happy trying to lie to women. I wanted to be with a woman so bad. I want a family. I cried growing up not understanding why I was so sick. I prayed and prayed. I couldnt have sex with women because i could not become aroused enough to partake. I wanted to. Does this mean I can never love? Ill never spend my life with anyone because I couldnt committ like most men. I dont want to be this way. You compare it to lying, stealing and adultry like its the same. You can choose not to do those things and still live a normal life. I cant. I can chose to be alone or be with a women that I cant lay with because there is something wrong with me. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but you act like you’re an expert on this. You dont know the feeling as a child begging to be normal because you know something is wrong with you. At the end you dont have to agree but its not your place to judge.

    • Hi David, I’m not judging you. I’m just telling you the truth. My heart aches for you and for the story you tell. I’m not sure what your physical issue is. Or even what your emotional issue is. I don’t know your family history; I don’t know if you were abused by your parents. I don’t know if you were sexually abused by a man when you were young, but somehow, I get a feeling you might have been. There are so many things that could have happened to you as a young boy that could have produced these feelings within you. None of which you would feel free talking about with a stranger online. But I do know this: God did create us man and woman and he did intend for us to be happy with one another. He is not a cruel God. He doesn’t intend for us to be alone. Are there people who might be asexual- in other words, not really interested in sex at all? I think so. But are there people who MUST be with the same sex naturally? I don’t think so. I really don’t, David. I think these people are created through abuse or by choice. The statistics show that homosexuals are 4 times more likely to have been sexually abused that heterosexuals. Also, that they enter into sexuality years earlier than heterosexuals. They also are many more times likely to be abusers of alcohol and drugs than heterosexuals. Also, that they end up 14 times more likely to kill themselves. This study was just released by the John Hopkins Hospital which is the foremost medical group on transgender & homosexual studies in the world. The homosexual population is an unhappy group that has been, by and large, abused by people in their lives. This tells me alot, David. This tells me that perhaps kids that might otherwise have gone on to lead normal, happy lives were abused by their parents, uncles, strangers or others in their lives and were waylaid somehow in their development. Rape or even sexual conditioning by more mature adults can lead to this as well. Nowadays, even culture is pushing youngsters as young as 10 and 11 to make these choices when they might merely be curious or feel unpopular. ‘Coming out’ is the newest way to become an instant star at school! But it is also an instant way to become part of the most unhappy group in the world.

      The foremost doctors at John Hopkins are warning that we should not be celebrating and encouraging such young children to make these types of proclamations at such young ages. All studies show that if we just let children alone, they will almost all choose heterosexual lifestyles on their own. This is a good thing. And it proves that people aren’t ‘born that way’. It proves that people CAN be highly influenced to make these decisions and then, be trapped by them. Doesn’t it?

      David, as I said, I don’t know enough about you history to understand how you came to where you are but I do know God. And I trust in him. He is not a cruel God. I BELIEVE every word you said. I believe you don’t feel attracted to women. I believe you feel only attracted to men now. But I don’t believe you started out that way. I believe you were affected by someone or by several people in your life. I believe you were injured by people, frightened by people. Perhaps even by those who called themselves Christians.

      Here is what I know: I wrote this article for YOU. I wrote it for everyone to at least know the truth. God is REAL, David. And so is Jesus. If you think giving up sex is so hard, how hard do you think it was to decide to allow himself to be beaten, mocked by all those people in the streets, carry that heavy wooden cross in front of everyone, have that thorny crown shoved upon his scalp until he bled, nailed hand and foot onto the cross and then have his body heaved up, up and up until finally his body slammed into position as the cross came to rest in the dirt? How hard was it to have his Children look at him with hatred- the very ones he came to save? To have them all doubt him, laugh at his naked and bleeding body and be GLAD he was suffering? David, do you think that was an easy decision? Do you think it was an easy decision for God to allow his only Son to do that for us? No, it wasn’t. I think Jesus knows a thing or two about sacrificing a thing or two for the greater good. And in this case, it is for YOUR greater good- for your soul.

      David, there is a God. And you know it. Jesus came to die for you and for me. And the only thing standing between you and Jesus is what? sex? Is sex that important to you? I would give up sex in two seconds for what I have in Jesus today. I know you think, “sure you would”, but I would. As Apostle Paul said,

      I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

      22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.”
      Romans 8:18

      But then again, I know what I have and you don’t so it’s easier for me to say. I have the joy already. But I can witness to what I have, can’t I? I can TELL you about what I have in Jesus and I can tell you that it is worth the sacrifice, can’t I? The joy I have in this life FAR exceeds any kind of sex or relationship I could find on this earth. Even my loving husband and children can’t compare to the joy I have in Christ. the joy I have in God is white hot- it is more than I can handle sometimes. I have to back away in prayer sometimes because I feel I might explode into little pieces. My body can’t handle the joy. That is how great it is. I know why our bodies must be remade before we can enter heaven, David. It is because we literally can’t handle the joy and the magnificence that is God. David, no amount of sex or human love can compare to that. Your eternal life with God is worth EVERYTHING you have. It is true- better to cut off your arm than to lose your soul.

      My advice to you, my dear brother, is to STOP having sex with men right now. God doesn’t fault our minds. He faults our actions. Just repent for your actions and ask for forgiveness. It is easily given, my dear brother. Then, come to church and just rest in Christ for a bit, why don’t you? Take a load off and stop worrying for a while. Read the Bible and find all the promises of God. Stop focusing on only one issue. Take a break from this one sin. You can do this. Pray and talk to other Christians. Find other Christians who have walked your same walk. Everyone sins. This is the truth. There is forgiveness for all.

  7. Dear Susan,
    I stumbled across your website while reading through the bible. Was doing a little research while in the book of Chronicles. Went down this rabbit trail regarding false idols. I specifically found your post on Homosexuality posted in March of 2013. This is an amazing write. You are very gifted in your ability to teach the truth about Gods word. Since I found this post on my cell phone I went to your website to print this article. I can’t seem to find it. Is it available to print? You are in my prayers now. May God bless you and keep you and may His face continue to shine on you.
