Top 7 Bible Verses About Homosexuality

Homosexuality is a hot button issue in the world today. From the issues surrounding gay marriages, to the activism and gay pride parades all around, it’s clear that it won’t just go away. Unfortunately, due to these issues, tensions have grown between the homosexual community and the Christian community. And, it’s sad to say that many Christians have not just disagreed with the gay lifestyle, but have vehemently attacked and mocked them in an ungodly way. While it is true that the Bible speaks against homosexuality, it also speaks against the mistreatment of others. In fact, the Bible promotes a selfless love that, while not tolerating sin, will be able to confront people in an appropriate and godly way. Thus, it’s vitally important that all people go to the Scriptures to clear up any confusing regarding homosexuality. So, here are 7 bible verses about homosexuality.

“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. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

“For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.” Romans 1:26-28

 “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Mark 10:6-9 

“The sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, in accordance with the gospel of the glory of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted.” 1 Timothy 1:10-11 

“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.” Leviticus 20:13 

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22

“The two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and bowed himself with his face to the earth and said, “My lords, please turn aside to your servant’s house and spend the night and wash your feet. Then you may rise up early and go on your way.” They said, “No; we will spend the night in the town square.” But he pressed them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house. And he made them a feast and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” Genesis 19:1-5 

Bible Verses About Homosexuality

Conclusion

Although Homosexuality is a big issue in today’s world, people can learn a lot if they only dive into the Scriptures. Yes, the Scriptures do list homosexuality as a sin; however, everyone must realize that there are many other sins as well—including those committed by heterosexual people. A homosexual is no more a sinner than the guy and girl who have casual sex together. It’s good for Christians to be concerned about homosexuality, but not to the point where they are pinpointing that one sin and placing it above all others. Christians must reach out to homosexuals in a non-aggressive way, as Jesus would; they must be completely loving and truly care about the person. They need Jesus as much as anyone else does—including you!

        My Uncle died of AIDS, he probably had it for years not even knowing it infecting maybe 10-20 other people…I had many Holiday dinners with my Uncle as did my kids, we did not reject him, but he knew where I stood, if you don’t recall your recent history, AIDS kills…and that is hurting other unnecessarily.

        • http://newyorker.com/books/page-turner/science-fiction-classic-still-smolders Isaac Edward Leibowitz

          Christianity has killed more than AIDS. So let’s use your “logic” and outlaw it. Yeah, baby.

    • TJ MC

      Why is it a sin?

  • Marshal Phillips

    In my view, what is a sin is to deny science, reason, and common sense about gay and lesbian people. It’s makes as much sense as trying to brand left handed people as sinful. Why use religion to harm the lives of others? If you’re not gay or lesbian, you know someone who is… perhaps in your own family, or among your friends, associates, and neighbors. Live and let live.

    • thushjz

      My Uncle (whom I cared a lot about and had several holiday dinners with even though he was gay) died of AIDS, so, I conclude from that. his lifestyle and behavior was dangerous and destructive, which I also taught my kids, even though they TOO ate several Holiday meals with him over the years…

      • Marshal Phillips

        AIDS is a virus not a lifestyle. I’ve known many people in my life who have died of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes etc.
        Today AIDS is a manageable disease; in Africa it affects mostly straight people.
        I conclude that if one of your kids was gay or lesbian you would accept and love and want to have a full life of romance and marriage just like if you had a straight kid?

        • Michael Herring

          but the gays got it first aids and they spread it around and they didnt care who got it. according to the bible plaques is given if you break gods laws most disease are from sin like cancer is usallly cause from unforgiveiness or envy and africa they usually practice witch craft so they deserve to have their kids cursed

          • Ali Khan

            I agree with you Michael. It’s only after the discussion of facts and statistics that these people turn away in shame and live according to their delusions. God help them if He chooses to.

    • Caleb Saruk

      Ha! Denying science is a sin, in what dictionary do those definitions fit? But yes in your incorrect view, not by definition.

      • Marshal Phillips

        Of course denying the reality of science, biology, medicine, psychology and common sense is not only missing the mark it’s being stupid as well.

        • Caleb Saruk

          None of what you said is the definition of sin as you claimed. I was commenting on your incorrect word usage.

          • Marshal Phillips

            “Sin” is a flexible word and can mean different things in different contexts. http://www.onelook.com

          • Caleb Saruk

            Dude you stated your opinion of what you think sin means and I stated mine. Saying it is flexible does nothing for either argument. Stop trying to get others to accept you who don’t. I for one never will and you’re just going to have to deal with that. I’m not trying to change you so stop reacting to my comments as if I am. Do as you want it’s your choice. No one does what they believe unless they have a basis for that belief. I do not wish to waste the rest of my life arguing with you as to why each of us believes the way we do. I know you won’t let this go because you have a need to feel justified about your choice outside of yourself. I simply am not giving you anymore of my time because this issue is not that important in my life. I separate myself from gays and always will, based on what the words of God say, not on your take of those words as I am not you, duh. Now I separate myself from you by removing myself from the email alert I received on your responses. Have a nice life

          • Marshal Phillips

            Relax and consult a dictionary.
            I’m NOT trying to change your mind; this is a public thread for ALL to read.
            “I separate myself from gays and always will”, while Jesus says to love your neighbors as yourself.

  • Joe Craig

    Not everyone in the world believes in the same religion as Christians. Because all they have is a BELIEF, and nothing more. You cannot deny other people freedom to live their life because YOU think its wrong or sinful. Not even your own congregation can agree on what is a sin and what is not, nor can they agree on how to interpret bible passages. Most Christian’s don’t live by any part of their bible, but expect other to live by it. I say organized religion should be outlawed and followers sent to prison for life, this way they stop harming society and the world will finally find peace and love.

      You’re want to put 2 billion Christians, 1 billion Muslims, 900 million Hindus, umpteen million Jews, Buddhists, Sikhs and miscellaneous believers in jail? Good luck with that. It’d be easier for everybody else

      • Joe Craig

        Haha. Religious people are doing a fine job destroying themselves anyway. After they burn their faith to dust I will still be here. Logic, reason, common sense, science, will win in the end.

        • thushjz

          That’s what they said in the first century after Christ, the second century after Christ,the third Century after Christ, the fourth Cent….well, you get the idea

  • Andrew

    Modern understanding sexual orientation did not even exist come about before the nineteenth century. To say that any part of the Bible is about homosexuality is ludicrous.

    • Frank6548

      To claim that committed homosexual relationships did not exist in the ancient world is ignorant. All homosexual unions, romantic and or sexual are sinful. Always has been and always will be. No getting around that.

      • Andrew

        They existed, sure. I’m not really convinced Paul was writing them.

        Your surety that homosexual unions are sinful is just a selfish way for you to justify the way they make you uncomfortable.

        • Frank6548

          There just is no way to claim any homosexual relationship is not sinful. None. It has nothing to do with my comfort.

          • Andrew

            There have been many Christian theological arguments that do just that, not to mention tons of secular ones, and it is disingenuous of you to suggest otherwise.

            “A righteous man hates lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and comes to shame.”

          • Frank6548

            Some have tried, all have failed. My statement stands.

          • thushjz

            My Uncle was gay and died of AIDS, we had many holiday dinners with him, his behavior was destructive, it killed him in the end, my family did not reject him, but he knew where I stood.

  • http://newyorker.com/books/page-turner/science-fiction-classic-still-smolders Isaac Edward Leibowitz

    It’s disingenuous to suggest the Bible teaches against the mistreatment of gays. It actually says to murder them, and provides a lame “godly” excuse for the mistreatment.

    they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.” Leviticus 20:13

    I think we can dispense with an ancient middle-eastern text to clear up much of anything about morals.

    Just treat them as you would want to be treated. It’s called the ethic of reciprocity. Jesus taught it as the “Golden Rule,” but Confucius taught it to, and now evolutionary biology has confirmed other social animals operate with the same ethic.

    My dog is a better moral guide than the Bible on how to treat folks.

    • Marshal Phillips
    • Ali Khan

      If your dog knew anything about morals, you would’ve sound more believable. An animal doesn’t know the first thing about ethics, or what is right and wrong.

  • Guest

    Sexual perversion is adultery, which is to adulterate: to corrupt or make impure.

    2 Kings 22:26
    With the holy one thou wilt be holy, and with the valiant, perfect.
    With the elect thou wilt be elect, and with the perverse thou wilt be perverted.

  • Gregory Peterson

    It’s called defamation to group the law abiding minority people in with thieves,

    enslavers, liars, perjurers, swindlers etc. Not to mention that unlike with drunkards under the influence of alcohol, people can safely operate heavy machinery while under the influence of Gay.

    I doubt that Gay men lay with a man as with a woman. Why would they want to do that? A straight man might under extraordinary circumstances, I guess. I’ve seen “Kiss of the Spider Woman.”

    In any case, the contexts of Lev. verses are lists would appear to be about what the ancient Egyptians and Canaanites did in worshiping fertility gods, gods similar to Moloch. Don’t do what they did…especially tossing first born male infants into sacrificial fires. As a first born child, I’m especially adamant about that…

    If memory serves, one ancient fertility cult sacrifice ritual was for a man to lay with a cross dressing priest, who would then help facilitate the acquisition of, and except for the god, the man’s “seed” sacrifice. Sperm was apparently sort of thought of as an unformed child. (They didn’t know about sperm cells and the mammalian egg, modern era discoveries, so they understandably thought that sperm was the sole stuff of life. Conception was when the womb accepted the unformed child and began to knit it into shape.)
    Mark 10:6-9 is not about minority sexual orientations, but about who can divorce whom…which is pretty much nobody. It doesn’t condemn legally recognized, civil same-sex marriages. Matthew 19 goes on to make clear what Jesus was doing, which was to discourage men from marrying at all. Do you like like a eunuch because of the reign of the heavens? (I wouldn’t go as far as Origen did, however.)

    Genesis 19:1-5 isn’t about minority sexual orientations, but is instead, apparently about gang rape… pretty much the ultimate in inhospitable behavior. I worry about people who can’t tell the difference between mutually consensual adult relationships (of which I find few in the Bible) and gang rape. Gang rape is about terrorism and enslavement. Mutually consensual adult relationships are about love and pair bonding.

    “Reach out to homosexuals.” I haven’t met a homosexual since the early 1970s, which oddly enough, was about the same time that Negroes disappeared. I suspect the primary reason behind the disappearances is that minority people got tired of being labeled and defined by people of obvious ill will, and presumptuously decided that they would call themselves what they pleased to call themselves. So if you’re going to “reach out to homosexuals,” you won’t find many. Gay people aren’t “homosexuals,” a rather pejorative and obsolete clinical word. You don’t show love when you don’t call people what they call themselves… you show condescending bigotry instead.

    “Homosexuality” is a now much abused,
    modern-era social construct with a lot of scientific baggage. If your
    Bible has the word in it, I would wonder about the presumptions and competence of the translators. What other rather obsolete Victorian era scientific words are used in Bible translations?

    “Homosexuality” is a social construct which didn’t exist in Biblical times. They had other social constructs, usually constructed upon very sexist foundations of patriarchal dominance and feminine submission. Bible translations should not disguise it. The very idea of a free man sleeping with his equal of either sex was a very subversive threat to patriarchal society. Moral people today just don’t care.

    Slavery has been abolished, little thanks to conservative white Evangelicals, and women’s rights movements, from women’s education, to women’s suffrage, to anti-discrimination laws have made their mark on society, to the better, and with little thanks to white conservative Evangelicals.

    And… why did so many Bible translations start using the word “homosexuality” back when the Gay rights movement began to get traction?

    Probably not a conspiracy, but of presumptuous, unempathetic minds lacking in a moral imagination. There is little excuse for that anymore.

    • Guest

      That’s a long long-winded dodge but it’s never allowed to be homosexuals.

      • Gregory Peterson

        Minority people get to pick their own community names and self identities these days. And Gay people generally have chosen “Gay,” which has a long historical slang resonance.

        • Guest

          Whatever. It’s still not allowed.

          • Gregory Peterson

            I don’t understand the point you’re making. Sorry.

          • Guest

            Then you must be very stupid. It has nothing to do with ‘fertility cult rituals’, no one is ever allowed to be a homosexual under any circumstances. It’s wrong and immoral. Is that clear enough for you now?

          • Gregory Peterson

            Yes… I now know exactly what you are.

          • Guest

            I doubt it, but it’s good that you at least understand
            your heresies are rejected.

            Only christians are bound by the rules of christianity. I’m not a christian, so I don’t care that I’m violating the rules of your club. I’m not bound by them, and nobody in your organization, not even the boss you worship, has the authority to do anything about it.

            Bosses have authority, that’s what boss means, it means they who are in command.

        • Caleb Saruk

          The name has to fit the act bud. You can’t change the definition of a word.

          • Gregory Peterson

            Gay isn’t just about sex…and claiming that minority relationships are just about sex, as I once heard about interracial relationships, is defamation.

          • Caleb Saruk

            You claimed that not me. You don’t really expect me to believe that when someone loves someone they won’t consummate that relationship. That means sex at some point which at that point describes what I’m explaining. I’m saying the definition of being a Christian is following Christ’s teaching, God who is Christ never supported homosexuality period, something which we will find out on the day of judgement. Until that day let the gay be gay and the straight be straight and leave it at that. God speaks of intereligeous relationships as wrong and tells the Jews that if they want to marry a gentile they are to have the gentile do as a Jew would, but I’m sure that you are trying to argue that God is defaming gays.
            I’m done talking to you, try to convince another you’ve failed here.

          • Gregory Peterson

            Of course a couple will be intimate. But you’re sexualizing Gay relationships in the same way that racists sexualized interracial relationships. But, love is love, regardless .

            God isn’t defaming Gays…you’re defaming God in the same manner as those condescending, rictus smile faced, bigots warning me to do as they said, or God have no choice but to consign me to Hell.

            You don’t speak for God, you speak for a reading of the Bible which you think privileges you at the expense of others. Is it an ego thing? That heterosexual privilege thing not working out for you, so you think that you have to double down to make it work?

  • Carol Lynn Thomas

    Ugh. I say to myself, “read some blogs on the evangelical page” and the first two I see are condemning gays. My daughter is gay and Christian, but it is people like you who have pushed her away from the church. I’m going back to the progressive Christianity page.

            Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself. Judge not; but if you do… you yourself will also be judged.

          • Marshal Phillips

            Gays are not sinners for being who they are.
            No trouble for them; the “trouble” is when Pharisees judge and condemn them. Live and let live and let whatever god or gods you believe in do the “judging”.

          • Michael Herring

            wrong it says they are sinners we all have sinned where are you getting your crap from? he who says they do not sin are liars oh your saying gays dont sin only christ himself was with out sin and we do have the right to judge cause christ jesus said to test every spirit to see its of god You are not the spirit of God

          • Caleb Saruk

            He didn’t teach anal sex with your neighbour bud, he called that sodomy and destroyed the city named so after the act for committing it. Yes that was the same God.
            You also omitted on the judging part, he said in the same manner that you judge you will be judged. So that reads if you judge to deny God’s law, he too will deny you. Gods law speaks against homosexuality calling it an abomination equall to sex with animals.

          • Marshal Phillips

            Actually Sodom was destroyed precisely because the inhabitants were inhospitable to strangers; had nothing to do with gay marriage equality or even lesbian commitment ceremonies.
            Do you know what the word “abomination” means in the original language written for the Jews?; and what Other Things were ALSO abominations in the same context?

          • Caleb Saruk

            Uh no. Killed for in hospitality yet God commanded to go into the promise land and wipe out the inhabitants, God does not deny himself or his commands. By the way referring to sodom, the men at the door according to you did want to be hospitable to the 3 Angels. You believe want you want, but Christ was not gay or a promoter of gays. Something you know already I’m sure. The meaning of abomination means exactly that, something abhorred or hated, a detestable act. You can try and spin it whatever way you want to please yourself but from the beginning God made them male and female and blessed them and said to them be fruitful and multiply. You can’t multiply in the context referred to there if your gay. Gays are funny in that they forget that if the whole world were gay the human race would become extinct if they stick to their so called nature and don’t do wait straits do, have sex with the opposite sex. You don’t have to justify yourself to me bud your views are for you, but I will never lie and say that God taught that a man should have sex with another man.

          • Marshal Phillips

            Of course, the story is a parable, not literal. But at any rate Lot offered his daughters up to be raped. How’s that for family values!? Later his daughters got him drunk and had sex with him. Wow! Some family! “Gay” is NOT something that was known in the Iron Age of knowledge. The biological and scientific understanding of sexual orientation and gender issues was something that was wasn’t discovered until the 18th century. “Gays are funny…” In my experience gays and lesbians come from straight parents and are NOT “funny” but fellow human beings, neighbors, friends, colleagues, even extended family members if not family members.
            God didn’t teach “sex”. Humans discover their sexual orientation: straight, gay, bi, lesbian, transgender.
            You’re so busy judging and condemning something you know NOTHING about. Educate yourself.

          • Caleb Saruk

            You people need to learn who’s judging as those are not my words and I can’t take ownership of them. Therefore I am only passing on the words, just like a passenger tells you when you are speeding, the passenger didn’t make the law he only said what the law contained.
            Not a parable, and clearly you missed what I ment about funny. You and I will not decide what is said by God’s word but at the Judgement day there won’t even be an argument to be made simply a casting in to the fire of the unfaithful ones. I commit the Judgement into Gods hands, on that day The Lord will rebuke the disobedient ones, the rest is just opinions

          • Marshal Phillips

            You might educate yourself as to biblical exegesis AND common sense about Lot offering his daughters to be raped and later the daughters getting their dad drunk and having sex.

          • Michael Herring

            wrong again the man asked to get to know the angels which is of sexuall content get a concordiance bible and a study bible that is why they were destroyed!!!
            before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that _before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.” Genesis 19:1-5 .” Genesis 19:1-5

    • Caleb Saruk

      You can’t be a gay follower of Christ as he taught against homosexuality, so in being gay you aren’t following him, or dying to yourself as he put it. What’s that old saying? If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it’s a duck. Your not a Christian if you don’t obey Christ. If your gay you’re breaking god’s law and lawlessness is sin. If that is who you are then your nature is sin, just like the devil who does what is in his nature to do is a sinner. Do as you wish, but stop lying about it already! It’s the lie people are correcting you on.

        They know about their genitalia and still they persist in their minds that they were meant for this monstrosity. That is a clear indication of a mental disorder which is why they are plagued by so many STDs that are getting worse even as I write this. God was right in the first place when He told us specifically to put them to death.

      if she practices being gay then she according to the scriptures dont believe in the gospel of glory she needs to repent lots of love to you and your family

    so…why are Christians still using the old testament to support their views? We do not follow the Old Testament/Covenant, but the New. The Old Testament, for Christianity, serves as a history book, a record of the prophecies, and a reminder not to forget our origins in the Jewish religion. We follow the New Testament, the one where Jesus tells us to love everyone and judge no one. I have seen a lot of judgement coming from the “Christian” community and very little love.

    Interesting that not one of those bible quotes is from Jesus’ own lips. Not one. Meanwhile, I suggest we start stoning adulterers, since adultery is included in the same list of condemnations.

    Thanks for posting this. The problem with so-called Christians is their arrogance after interpreting bible quotes. If you believe being gay is a sin, is your sin “better” than his/her sin? Are you friendly with the couple next door, knowing that it is their second marriage & he left his first wife for his second wife? Jesus taught us to love one another, not judge each other.

      Jesus taught us to preach the gospel and the Word judges them, not me. Love means you speak the truth and what the Bible says and let God be their Judge.

        Exactly right.

        Everyone has the record of God’s Word to refer to so we shouldn’t have to listen to so many opinions disturbing the peace all the time when so many questions were already decided in the past by the Judge of all judges.

        People without Jesus though are always breaking the peace with their objections just like little kids throwing tantrums except these are adults that never grew up.

        Some people don’t want to grow up and they need to go play in their own sandbox with people like them if they want to throw sand all the time.

    1 Cor 6 lists a number of sins. Is anyone on this thread going to propose to that idolatry be outlawed? that my Hindu neighbors not be allowed to have a polytheist temple in their home? That my gay neighbors not be allowed to marry? that my adulterous neighbors have a law literally making it illegal to commit adultery? There is a serious lack of consistent logical scriptural thinking in in trying to select certain sins as matters of public policy and leaving others to personal choice.
