Homosexuality and the Bible

  1. Introduction
    • Jesus reaffirmed the original design (Mt. 19:3-5)
    • Yet there is an estimated 1-3% (not 10%) who live contrary to that design...
    • And seemingly endless efforts to "normalize" homosexual behavior and alter public perception.
    • But what does the Bible say about homosexuality?
  2. Patriarchal Law
    • The Lord described the sin of Sodom & Gomorrah as "exceedingly grave" (Gen. 18:20)
    • That sin exposed... (Gen. 19:4-5)
    • "These indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh" (Jude 7)
  3. Mosaic Law
    • Specifically condemned. (Lev. 18:22-23; 20:13)
    • Related sin... (Dt. 22:5)
    • Notice the consequences... (Lev. 18:24-30)
  4. New Testament Law
    • Remember the words of Jesus. (Mt. 19:3-5)
    • "Those who practice such things are worthy of death" (Rom. 1:24-32)
    • "Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?" (1 Cor. 6:9-11)
  5. Conclusion
    • Like every other sin, homosexuality is something from which one must repent and for which one needs forgiveness to please God. (1 Cor. 6:11)
    • So how do we respond?
      • With truth. (Jn. 8:32; Eph. 6:17; 1 Pet. 3:15)
      • With compassion. (Mt. 9:36; 1 Cor. 6:11)
