Bible not only describes homosexual behavior as detestable,
but it also calls for the punishment of those involved (Leviticus
20:13). Their unrepentant attitude caused God to destroy Sodom
and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:24-25). As homosexual conduct has
been punished in the past, it will also be punished by God
in the future.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NIV): "Do you not know that
the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be
deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters, nor
adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor
thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers
will inherit the kingdom of God."
Homosexuality is also referred to as the sin of sodomy. This
reference comes from an account in the Bible of two exceedingly
wicked cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, which the Lord destroyed.
Sodom was known for its rampant homosexuality and unrestrained
sexual lust, as well as other sins such as arrogance, haughtiness,
and disregard for the poor. When the Lord sent angels to warn
Lot who lived in the city that it was about to be destroyed,
the men of the city actually wanted to rape the angels! Genesis
13:13: "But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners
before the LORD exceedingly."
the Old Testament the penalty for this sin was severe. 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." Today the penalty of death comes in the form of
AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. It also brings
death to the soul and spirit of man because the life of God
is pushed out by indulging in something that is an abomination
to God. God wants to deliver all who are trapped in this unholy
practice and He will if anyone calls out to Him with a sincere
has spread beyond the homosexual community to affect many
innocent people who are suffering with this disease through
no fault of their own. God's wrath is not directed to those
who have innocently contracted this disease, but rather to
the sinners who are spreading it through their sinful conduct.
There is hope for the homosexual. God forgives and cleanses
a person who repents and turns from their sin, including the
sin of homosexual behavior (1 Corinthians 6:11). As well as
forgiveness, God's grace brings with it the power to live
a life that is pleasing to God (Romans 6:6-7).
'Liberal' churches espouse tolerance of homosexual behavior
in the name of 'love'. They plug for the acceptance of homosexual
conduct as normal, 'because they can't help it'. They are
not only wrong in this thinking, but they are actually not
being at all loving towards homosexuals, because, contrary
to the Bible, they reduce the homosexual person to the level
of an animal, driven by instinct. In removing moral responsibility
from the person, they dehumanize them, whereas the Bible says
we are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27), with the
power of moral choice. More accurately, they liken homosexuals
as less moral than animals, because even animals know better
than to degrade themselves through such unnatural and immoral

race and impairment all relate to what a person is, whereas
homosexuality relates to what a person does."
