The answer to this question is clearly to the affirmative. There has been an effort by many in the liberalized media to attempt to reconcile homosexual actions with Christian beliefs. Such attempts are futile. There is clear evidence in the Bible forbidding homosexuality.
While we study this topic, it is important to remember that our actions should always radiate with charity and compassion. We should not attempt to condemn anyone, but rather to show them through logic and understanding the way of Christ. Homosexuality should be viewed the same way as we view every other sin. It is not sinful to be tempted by this sin or any other. Just as every person experiences different temptations to lust, vengeance, hate, greed, or deceit, some people experience temptations of homosexuality. Now to deliberately place ourselves in the near occasion of sin is sinful in itself. Those who experience the temptation should resist it and in doing so, they conform themselves with Christ’s will.
With charity and compassion, we now seek to understand the various places in scripture that forbid the practice of homosexuality. Consider Leviticus 18:22-30. “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; such a thing is an abomination.” In this chapter of Leviticus, we find an explanation, given by God Himself of the 10 Commandments, which He gave to Moses. We see from this verse that homosexuality is strictly forbidden.
In Romans 1:26-27, testimony is given against homosexuality:
“Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 shows us the gravity of sins such as homosexuality:
“Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor sodomites nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
From these passages, we clearly see that homosexuality is forbidden in the Bible, and the gravity of this sin. Let us not be deceived. Relativism and deceit are everywhere and it takes firm resolve to defeat them. When a person claims that immoral actions are not sinful, take up that cause and in charity reveal the truth to them.
