Is Homosexuality Wrong?


It isn’t for us to state whether homosexuality isn’t right. Who are we that we can decide the norm of ethical quality? It is our Creator alone who has the position, right, and insight to set the laws to oversee our lives. Accordingly, we should go to the Word of God for extreme direction on this significant issue.

Homosexuality is taboo in a few Bible sections, for example,

“You will not lie with a man, likewise with a lady. That is abhorrent.” (Leviticus 18:22, WEB)

Promptly following the law against gay intercourse is the denial against brutishness:

“You will not lie with any creature to pollute yourself with it; neither will any lady offer herself to a creature, to rests with it: it is a corruption.” (Leviticus 18:23)

Engaging in sexual relations with similar sex a lot with creatures are sins that justified capital punishment under the Mosaic pledge (Leviticus 20:13, 15-16). Under the new agreement for Christians, individuals who submit extramarital perversion and decline to atone won’t enter the Kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). All in all, they will be condemned to everlasting passing. This is a never-ending capital punishment.

Here is one entry that specifies both male and female homosexuality:

“Consequently, God surrendered them to disgusting interests. For their ladies changed the characteristic capacity into that which is against nature. Moreover likewise the men, leaving the common capacity of the lady, consumed in their desire toward each other, men doing what is wrong with men, and accepting in themselves the due punishment of their blunder. Indeed, even as they would not have God in their insight, God surrendered them to a criminal psyche, to do those things which are not fitting.” (Romans 1:26-28, World English Bible)

Plainly, Yahweh God through the missionary Paul showed His dissatisfaction with regards to gay conduct and way of life. Homosexuality is “improper” and “not fitting.” Its interests are “abhorrent” and “against nature.” There is no more grounded jargon to show God’s extraordinary dissatisfaction with regards to gay practice.

In any case, you may have the accompanying complaints:

Complaint 1: Paul’s letter was routed to individuals numerous hundreds of years back, so his letter isn’t pertinent to us.

My reaction: “Jealousy, murder, struggle, double dealing, fiendish propensities, mystery slanderers, backbiters, disdainful to God, ill bred, haughty,” and proud were all unsuitable and unsatisfactory conduct and activities in Paul’s day (Romans 1:29-30). Does that mean these practices are fitting and worthy today? What wasn’t right isn’t right today and will not be right tomorrow. God’s ethical quality is all inclusive and ageless.

On the off chance that you believe that Paul’s letter isn’t pertinent to us, at that point you ought to likewise imagine that the vast majority of the Bible, particularly the Old Testament, isn’t applicable to us; so why perused the Bible in any case? Why learn history? In the event that the obliteration of Sodom and Gomorrah, for instance, simply applied to individuals in those towns of that age, at that point for what reason would it be advisable for us to pay regard to the story? For what reason would Yahweh God remember it for the Bible? In actuality, the Bible says that what befell the devilish urban communities is a model for us: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the urban communities around them, having, similarly as these, given themselves over to extramarital perversion and followed abnormal substance, are gone ahead for instance, enduring the discipline of interminable fire.” (Jude 1:7)

We recount our set of experiences to gain from it, to perceive what went right so we can reflect it, to realize what turned out badly to dodge similar errors. So Paul’s letter, albeit routed to first-century Roman Christians, sets a direction for sexuality to us too. God doesn’t have to compose another book about our occasions; His heavenly Word stands for eternity. Thusly, Biblical standards actually apply to our life right currently to time inconclusive.

Protest 2: Paul didn’t state which gay acts are censured.

My reaction: If I state, “Strawberries are bad for you,” okay say, “I can drink strawberry smoothie since Shirley didn’t state drinking strawberry smoothie is awful for me”? Similarly, Paul didn’t have to spread out the particulars. At the point when homosexuality isn’t affirmed of, it implies homosexuality in its whole sense, regardless of how much or how little of it individuals practice, isn’t permitted. Most importantly, when Paul didn’t give particulars, it all the more plainly exhibits that homosexuality as a rule is “disgusting” and “wrong.”

Complaint 3: Many gay circumstances depend on adoration. How is it possible that you would deny two consenting grown-ups to cherish one another and get hitched like any other individual?

My reaction: “Straight individuals reserve the option to focus on each other in adoration, in marriage. For what reason right? It’s out of line!” is the normal dissent from gay people.

“We likewise have love and need to show that adoration,” says the gay network.

Yet, that affection is childish love. While the affection for each other may not be egotistical in itself, it is narrow minded on the grounds that it shows that you love yourselves and each other more than you love Yahweh. At the point when we love ourselves more than we love our very Life-Giver, out of the blue, we are narrow minded. Conflicting with Yahweh’s desires is acting childishly.
