Well to answer that, you got to first look at people who are gay. Is it something they can change about themselves? Well, this has been the topic of many studies for a good couple of decades by the scientific community. Through all of the studies that have been preformed and research that has been done, almost all scientist, psychologist, and experts in general on this subject have all agreed that being gay is something that can not be changed about a human, when a person is gay, they're gay. There is no going straight or "curing" them. So if God all made us who we are, that would mean God made some people gay. So if you say "Its a sin to be gay" then you're saying that God made a mistake with the creation of gay people. If I remember correctly, God is perfect, and makes no mistakes. So saying its a sin to be gay is illogical if you are a Christian. It doesn't make sense at all. To even think that having natural attractions toward someone that you can't help is wrong, just because of that persons gender is crazy.
yes, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (NIV). Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." (NIV) Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." (NIV)
No, but to a lot of Christians, it is a sin. Love is love. It doesn't matter what sexual orientation you go by. Love is free and it has no limits, unless a 14 year old is dating an 18 or 19 year old... then love DOES has its limits. Too many people rely on the bible, and you know where that gets you? You're soon gonna be shoving Christianity down your kids' throat, just like what my father did to me. I can tell you this... it's freedom to not be a Christian anymore.
Of course it's a sin.If you knew GODs word you wouldn't have to ask.Sounds like you question it but already know the answer.If you have conviction,then you already have the answer.But you should not go on letting any man or woman saying whats right or wrong but the voice of our ALMIGHTY GOD.Don't let or accept anyone bring judgement to or down on you.GOD is our JUDGE and HE alone is the only one that can let us know what is right.Don't let this man or any other person or persons tell you if your sinning. we're all sinners saved by HIS GRACE.World would be a way better place if we left the judgein to our FATHETR.
GOD IS THE LAW-GIVER AND DETERMINES WHAT IS SIN. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 -" Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people - none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God." Yes, according to the Bible homosexuality is sin. "Jesus died for all sins including homosexuality, adultery, and even murder," I am not passing moral judgment on anyone. Jesus' death on the Cross was the propitiation for all behavior that is considered sinful in the Christian faith.
What, are you just going fishing for religious zealots? Well you caught a bunch of them, too bad they're not marketable. Of course it's not a sin, what ever that is. Quite frankly, I can't figure out why these supposed religious folks are so concerned with the sex thing. It's sex, not a big deal, two people touching each other. Yeah? Seems to me like people who aren't comfortable with it are jealous of those who are comfortable with it. Like everything else, if i can't have it I'm gonna make damn sure you can't have it. I get so weary of all that malarkey.
I believe it is. It is said in the bible that being gay is an abomination to you. Not trying to start an argument, just stating what I know and believe in. Not going to judge, because that is also a sin. Soooooo..........I'm done.
Yes...1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (NIV). Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."

You see, many ppl make the claim that homosexuality is a sin b/c the bible says it is. But what else does the Bible say? Well, the bible also says that animals have no sin and that they cannot sin. yet, even in the animal species, homosexuality itself has been found. with this being, if homosexuality is a sin, then these animals are obviously taking part in something sinful. but as the bible says animals cannot sin, then this means that its not a sin. thus, making a contradiction in the bible itself. all i can say is... stop relying on the bible and actually believe what you want to believe

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.
If rebellion against God is the definition of sin, you only have to ask, does God have an opinion regarding our sexual behavior? Yes. Married sex alone is allowed, as that both creates life, and provides protection for the growing child. If you want to do anything outside that, it's sin. Of course, almost everyone does "stuff" outside that. So, what you do with your failures will depend on your religious instruction. But from God's perspective, his command was to fill the earth and multiply, and marriage is part of fulfilling that command. Homosexuality appears to be a way to ignore God's command, which is a command before Abraham and Moses, thus one to all men.
It is a sin to have a sexual relationship with a person of the same sex. Otherwise there never would of been a need for males to be created in the first place since it is females that bear children. They would have just all been created females with fertile eggs.
...forget about the sinful nature of it! How about common sense and humanity? Why pleasure yourself by causing someone "you love" (male or female) great physical pain and psychological discomfort? Sounds like selfish love to me! PS. my coworker visits her doctor a lot because her husband likes his anal sex so much, and if she stops giving it to him, he threatens to divorce her and leave the kids behind. Now she can't hold it for long and soils her panties, and her professional life is a mess too because of that. (try explaining to your kids why mommy is in diapers! -- "oh, daddy wants to love mommy in the wrong place?" ((i would kill my dad for that, if he would have done that to my mom, or at least hated him for the rest of my life as a selfish perv)))!)
No. God made u like that. People's sexuality is sacred, it's a part of who u are, part of ur essence. Honestly, I think the reason there isn't acceptance of homosexuals in a church is because of the devil...the reason women aren't aloud to speak and are told to shut up, is because I think the devil is working from inside the church. Remember, the devil sits in high places. Trying to control. Control what people see, hear, think, say. Just work on building a personal relationship with Jesus. Talk about this, with him. Remember god is a loving god and he loves u no matter what. Believe in jesus's salvation and God Bless :)
To me, Love is what makes us human and much more that we are still trying to understand it. i know what the bible says but I do not care what the bible says about this "gay word", if two beings LOVE each other let them love and be happy. Love is too strong to make it a sin anyway.
It is a sin, however it's not so severe that "YOU WILL BE CONDEMNED TO ETERNAL HELLFIRE!!!!!" No, its just as bad as any other sin, and looking at it this way, you could say that it naturally occurs. I don't believe anyone is born gay but this is a reasonable enough explanation for me.
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, NOR MEN WHO PRACTICE HOMOSEXUALITY, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:8-10; emphasis added)
"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination." (Leviticus 18:22)
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. - Zack
In the beginning God told Adam he was going to give him a helper - that helper was Eve not Steve. The Bible clearly outlines that sleeping with one of the same sex goes against what is in the Bible (1 Corinthians 6:8-10) That is not my teachings but what has been printed in the Holy Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16). Also - You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination." (Leviticus 18:22)

WOW! I cannot believe how STUPID people are!!!!!!!!!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! BLIND ORGANIZED RELIGION!!! God is ALL KNOWING and all LOVING!!!! He DID NOT write ANY of those bibles! Those bibles were written during a time of what??? _________ During a time of a religious WAR!!!! When every religion wanted the people to join their church/religion. So they wrote things in the bible (untrue things,) that scared people into joining their religion.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!
It's been HOW many years since that religious war????
And to further you education just a little............ Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, & Transgender people do not CHOOSE to be that way, it is not a choice! It is actually caused from something called... "Cell Memory"
Read Sylvia Browne if you would like to know more.
Let's just say this: Being homosexual may not have been what hid wanted but I don't want anything to do with a God who would kill them for loving differently. And we certainly shouldn't judge others for this We all have a sword and we can choose to swing it and break someone down or we can choose to put the sword away because maybe it wasn't ours to swing in the first place.
Well GOD said you were sinned if you are gay because of some type of demond/evil spirit type thing was inside of you. But honestly in my opinnion i dont belive GOD will send you to Satan just because you are gay. Hope that helps. :)
Definition of Gay: A Noun Describing A Same Sex Preference Person (Homosexual). Another Definition: A Person That Is Happy, Joyful. If You Are Referring To The First Definition Shown Here, According To Scripture, God Calls Homosexuality Wrong. Scripture Has Been Quoted Here Supporting This. I Will Not Call What God Calls Wrong, Right. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Resolution Recommended: With An Open and Sincere Heart A s k God To Right A Possible Wrong. Give Him An Opportunity. Satan Continues To Say To People... 'Don't Listen To The Voice of God, The Bible.' But Don't Be Fooled. John 10:10
PeruvianPanda, many have given their answers, based on what they believe or what they know based on what they read. You've shared that most of the scientific community agrees that gays can't change. That is not considered "scientific proof" and with many years of DNA testing, there still is No Evidences that a person is born gay. To answer your question - if a person accepted Christ as their Savior and is practicing homosexuality, then that person is committing a sin. God does not hate the sinner, He hates the sin. Everyone in this world has a free will to do whatever we choose.
in my eyes its not a sin becuase I believe no one should tell other who they can and can't love just becuase they disagree with it or because their religion says its wrong but then again I'm not a very religious person
Many would say that God created those who live a homosexual lifestyle that way; or that God is love and therefore loves everybody. 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 tells that not only will homosexuals not inherit God's kingdom, but adulterers, fornicators, and the list goes on and on. Verse 11 of that same chapter is pretty telling for it says: "And yet that is what some of you WERE. BUT you have been WASHED CLEAN." With the implication that such practices are unclean. God would not MAKE people homosexuals, fornicators, adulterers, etc. and then condemn those to death for practicing such behaviors that he views as acceptable.
Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." What is this telling us to do? It's from the Bible. WHAT IS IT COMMANDING?? To MURDER PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF GOD. Stupid book. Should be outlawed.
