What Does The Bible Say About Homosexuality? by chocodaviva(f): 1:52pm On Jul 31, 2016
Gay marriage is still under debate in many countries. In the Unites States, however in 2015 the supreme court declared gay marriage to be legal nationwide. Thereafter, internet searches on the topic skyrocketed. one of the most popular questions asked was "What does the bible say about Gay marriage?"
The Bible does not specifically comment on legal rights involving marriage between people of same sex. a more fundamental question is What does the bible say about homosexuality?
without closely examining the bible, many people think that they know the answer-but their answers are contradictory! Some say that the bible is clearly anti gay, others claim that the Biblical command to "love your neighbor" supports any and all sexual lifestyles. Roman 13:9.
which of these statement would you consider to be true?

1. The bible condemns homosexual acts?
Answer: TRUE .The bible says: "Men who practice homosexuality......will not inherit God's Kingdom." ( 1 Corinthians 6:9-10) ( Romans 1:26) same applies to women.

2. The Bible condones homosexual acts.
Answer: FALSE. The Bible teaches that sex should be engaged in only by a male and a female who are married to each other (Genesis 1:27, 28; Proverbs 5: 18,19).

3. The Bible promotes homophobia (a hatred of or prejudice towards homosexuals).
Answers: FALSE. Although the bible condemns homosexual acts, it does not encourage prejudice, hate crimes, or any other kind of mistreatment of homosexual. Romans 12:18.

Christians strive to follow the Golden Rule by treating others the way they themselves would like to be treated.

Note that the bible does not say that a Christian will never experience an improper desire, rather it says that he or she will choose not to carry out that desire, rather bring such desire under control. A person who has homosexual leanings cn control what he/she allows his mind to dwell on, just as he would control any other wrong desire, including leanings towards anger , adultery and greed. 1 Corinthian 9:27 , 2 Peter's 2:14,15.

Leviticus 20
13 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.

i think that quotation sould suffice.
