    Homosexual behaviour is wrong. This thread is not to discuss the issue. I just wanted to get an idea of who believed homosexuality is a sin in whatever circumstance.

    If you think I am wrong, then keep it to yourself, this isn't a thread to discuss it.

    SO, if you agree that it is wrong, just add your name and perhaps the strongest Scripture you know of that supports your belief.

    In practice, it is wrong.

    Homsexuality is perversion, Which is wrong in any language or way or in any gender.

    It is an ABOMINATION TO GOD!

    Homosexuality is a sin. The Bible lists the homosexual as an unrighteous person in I Cor. 6:9, along with liars, adulterers, fornicators, etc.

    How do people here define "homosexuality"? Is it the actions (including lustful thoughts) only, or does it also include the tendency/inclination?

    Another way of asking: Is the "gay" person who is celibate (or even occasionally stumbles but asks for forgiveness) because of his faith a "homosexual" or something else?

    I have known plenty of people who had homo-
    sexual tendancies, byut they kept them in
    check--did not follow through with the ten-
    dancy (as far as I know). Such persons, in
    my opinion, are no more sinners than an
    adolescent with raging hormones who
    chooses celibacy.

    However, the intelligent adolescent with such
    raging hormones, who determines not to give
    in to them, will not place themselves purposely
    in a position in which they will be tempted. Sso
    will the latent homosexual who is a believer.

    If either of these are sitting about, bemoaning
    what they are missing, letting their imaginations
    go wild, whether or not they are participating in
    direct sin with another, they are sinning, and
    such thoughts are likely to lead to disaster.

    This is why I wrote that if they are not homo-
    sexual in practice, they are not sinning.

    Yes, "Sir-ree Bob" you bet your bottom dollar its wrong--sinful, sick, perversion. Romans 1 about rounds out the top of the list--plus, the verse(I don't know the exact location--but it says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as thou do with womankind." But I suppose some Lillie-livered Liberal will come along and mock me and say something like--"OH! But Blackbird! That's what Moses' law said. We ain't under that law!" Well, that may be so--we are under Jesus' law now and He carries it to the extreme when He says, "Go, and sin no more!"

    Your friend,
    Blackbird

    It's definitely wrong - as is all sin.

    Lev. 18:22 "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination."

    My sentiments, exactly [​IMG]

    I regard the activity as sinful, and the orientation itself to be empirical evidence of the Fall, as per Romans 1.

    What has always bothered me about homosexuals and homosexuality is their DEMAND that we MUST accept them and even applaud them and their lifestyle, OR ELSE!

    I remember when I was growing up, you never heard of such things as homosexuality. Maybe I grew up in a rural, sheltered life or something, but such things were never discussed. Today, you cannot get away from it!

    Give me the days when it was never discussed openly, and if it did happen, it happened quietly in the privacy of someone's bedroom where no one else had to see it. Now, it is all militant and "in your face." That is what turns me off to it all, in addition to what God's Word says about it.

    Call me old-fashioned, but one's sexuality is a private matter between the person and God, and should never be flaunted (and that goes for heterosexuals, too). If you get in my face about it, then you are about on the same level with me as those vegan nuts, who are always whining and screaming about how evil I am because I eat hamburgers. Just live, and let live.

    It is sin.

    Romans 14:23b ...for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

    James 4:
    17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

    I'm with Hank D. It is sin. "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet." (Romans 1:27).

    The Bible says it's an abomination. You can't argue with the Lord. I mean you can, but it won't change anything.

    I personally have had many friends that have been of this persuation. I love them. But, I don't condone their choices. And when someone says to me that it's not a choice, it's biological...that's the new arguement. I just say "everything in life is a choice" Doesn't mean the choices in life are easy. But nevertheless.

    God said it is an abomination. That doesn't sound like a grey area to me.

    The bible says homosexual activity is a sin. THe rest of the stuff we discuss on the subject is fluff.

    The Scriptures declare homosexual behavior to be sinful. Period.

    It is sin both because it is declared to be so by scripture and because it is not affirmed by scripture. The liberals in the other forums try to make a distinction between some homosexual activities and others (such as "committed relationships" or "marriages"). This attempt fails because scripture never affirms such relationships but does affirm heterosexual marriages throughout.

    Also, I believe there are implications in the term "orientation" that are both unbiblical and dangerous. All sin starts in our thought lives. When we allow our minds to dwell on the appeals of sins, we will eventually find a way to justify some type of sinful action. Affirming an "orientation" may give someone the excuse they are looking for to fantasize etc. about a same sex relationship. This is sin in and of itself but may also progress to a real incident.

    As with any sin, homosexuality must be purged from the mind and heart through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. Simply reforming behaviour will always fail.
