This is such a touchy
subject and no matter what I say, what I think or how I
personally feel about this subject someone, perhaps many
will object and condemn me for my thoughts and opinions.
I canít help that. This article is not meant to
offend or to hurt anyone and is written with love and with
I am not a homosexual but I am well acquainted with people
who are and they are just as easy to like and befriend,
maybe more so that a lot of heterosexual people I am
acquainted with. However, I believe homosexuality is not a
healthy lifestyle and God condemns the act of same sex
sexuality; therefore it is wrong. It is a sin.
God says it is an abomination. However, it is the
sexual act God is referring to and not the person.
God loves the person very much, just as much as He loves
those who are violently condemning the homosexual persons.
Sin is sin and our condemnation and behavior toward
homosexuals as people is just as sinful in Godís eyes as
the sexual acts being carried on by these couples.
God said No and God meant No.
Is homosexuality a sin? Yes, God said that it is a
sin so it is a sin. He also condemns not honoring
God, putting anything before God, worshipping idols and
that includes money, not keeping the Sabbath, gluttony,
drunkenness, child abuse, spousal abuse, elderly abuse,
bullying, lying, cheating, foul language, envy, jealousy,
disrespect of parents, misuse and abuse of the earth,
hoarding, greed, murder, abortion, adultery, having sex
before marriage, divorce, with a couple of exceptions, (God
has specified specific rules for divorce) stealing,
laziness, slothfulness, un-cleanliness, vanity, pride
(self-righteousness) and the list goes on; these are all
sins and when we condemn another person, start pointing a
finger at someone else we have three more pointing right
back at us. When we as Christians behave in this
manner we are no different than the Pharisees that Jesus
reprimanded for their self-righteousness and the way they
Whether or not you choose to believe in God and what the
Bible teaches is your personal choice. I am sure
there are many who will disagree with my opinions here but
I am not condemning the person, I am only condemning the
act. It is the act that is the sin and we are all
sinners whether we believe in God or not. I donít do
everything right either but I deeply believe God is and
that His laws are perfect. I sincerely desire to
follow Jesus and I sincerely believe we will each be held
accountable for the choices we make in our life, right or
wrong and I believe God can and will help us overcome all
the wrongs in our life and forgives us through Jesus and
that includes homosexual acts.
Sin is doing anything against the will of God, His law, His
rules for how we should best live our life and I firmly
believe there is no such thing as a little sin, one sin is
just as black and big as the next sin and none of us, no
not one of us has the right to condemn another person.
That is Godís job. We may condemn the sin but not the
A homosexual can love God just as much as any other person.
No matter how much we love God we all still sin even if you
donít want to admit it and to all of us who would condemn
that soul that sins whether it is through homosexual acts
or any other sin, remember your own sins first. You, who
are without sin, cast the first stone. Jesus said
that and not one stone was cast. The Bible says that
we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. It
Can I accept homosexuality as being okay? No, I
cannot. I cannot because God said No and I believe in
God and trying to do my best to do Godís will, however, not
a day goes by but what I commit some sort of sin and so do
you. Can I accept smoking, drinking alcoholic
beverages until we are out of control, drugging,
promiscuity, political deception, religious piety, breaking
the laws of the land just because we disagree with them,
twisting and changing what the Bible says to satisfy our
personal doctrines and traditions as being okay? No,
I cannot. God says those things are wrong, therefore
they are sin.
I believe homosexuality is a sin, an abomination according
to God. It is not unpardonable however. The
only time it is not pardonable is if you refuse to confess
it, deny it as a sin and refuse to accept Godís pardon
through Jesus and try to change the behavior. We will
not get away with calling God a liar and that is what we do
when we refuse to admit something is a sin that God has
clearly said is a sin and that includes homosexuality.
God still loves you anyway despite the sin but He has
warned us that the wages of sin is death, complete and
eternal separation from God, the creator of our being.
God still loves the person and He provided us a way out of
sin, redemption for and salvation from our sins, all sins.
Do I hate homosexuals? No, of course not, I have no
reason to hate them. I know some very kind and good
people who are homosexual and in homosexual relationships
but being kind and good does not make any of us sin free.
I can still accept the person and I know the homosexual can
be just as productive and caring a member of our society as
anyone else. God through Jesus taught us to love all
of Godís children regardless of their sins. That is
what Jesus did. God loves us despite our self.
We should do no less toward each other.
We are all sinners, even Christians sin each and every day
and if you say you do not then you are a liar. Their
sexual orientation is a situation to be settled between
them and God. God is, was and always will be and we
will all stand accountable for our sins, the choices we
make one day. There will come a day of judgment before God.
Do I believe homosexuality is a sin? Absolutely, yes,
I do but their sexual orientation does not hinder me from
loving the person. I donít condemn anyone because
they are different from me whether it is for the color of
their skin, their eyes or their hair, their ethnic or
cultural origin, whether they are male or female, their
political or religious views or their sexual orientation.
I may not agree with their lifestyle or what they do, what
they believe or all the choices they make but I can still
be tolerant of the person.
My problem is not with the person but with the behavior.
Jesus had to come to earth to teach and live among us to
show us how to live and then die and live again so we may
live also and all because none of us know how to behave
according to Godís will. We are all born unto sin.
We all sin, even ďChristiansĒ and homosexuality is just as
much a sin as any other sin because it is against Godís
purpose for our being and His will. In the beginning
God created the heavens and the earth and all that is in it
including humans. He created the male species of
humanity first and made humans stewards over the earth and
then God said that man needed a help-mate and God created
from man another person, woman (the female of the species)
to be manís partner, his helpmate and united them as a
couple. Then God told them to be fruitful and
multiply. That is how you and I got here.
Sex is supposed to be between a man and a woman. Yes
there is pleasure in the act which makes it attractive and
desirable but its purpose is for propagation not just fun
and games or a means of expressing our love one toward the
other. When God created a help-mate He didnít create
another male. The first humans were not two males or
two females. It wasnít Eve and Alice or Adam and
Steve. It was Adam and Eve, a man and a woman with
all the right body parts for each to make them compatible
with each other. It just isnít that way with two
people of the same sex. God created us male and
female and one cannot work without the other. We need
both in a relationship. Same sex is not what God had
in mind, bottom line. God said so. Two males or
two females are not how God planned it and God said it was
not to be that way. Anything we do against Godís plan
for His creation, against His will is a sin and that
includes how we relate to each other as humans and
homosexuality. Pornography, pedophilia, free sex,
open marriage, sexual abuse of any kind is equally as bad.
I donít know what causes a person to live a homosexual
lifestyle. Iím not a doctor or a psychiatrist.
I donít understand what makes them tick and draws them into
that kind of a lifestyle. I donít know if it is
something that they are born with that turns them in that
direction, some chemical imbalance in their brain,
misguided hormone development or some other cause,
something that affected them in early childhood or some
other sort of orientation or experimentation developed
during their growing years. I donít know the cause
but I do know God forbids it.
God forbids the act but God still loves the person.
Same sex relationships, sexual relationships between two
males or two females are wrong in Godís eyes. It is
an act that is against the will of God and is not what God
created us for or to be. It is a sin according to my
understanding of God and what God has taught and my beliefs
as a Christian. My issue is with the act and not the
persons. I believe that homosexuality is a choice and
I am convinced by the word of God that it is a sin. I
have no problem with same sex couples having equal rights
under the law of the land. They should have the same rights
as every other human and the same responsibilities as well.
They should have equal housing, equal education and
employment opportunities, equal healthcare and be accepted
in any Christian church congregation just as much as anyone
else. Jesus came to save the sinner not the saint. We
are all sinners. We all need to confess our sins and
then work, through the help of God, to overcome those sins
in our life.
As Christians we need to show compassion, understanding and
a willingness to help others including those we know to be
homosexual. We need to set an example for others to
follow and we need to admit that we also are not perfect
yet. You cannot convince me that from the moment you
accepted Jesus gift of salvation you have never committed
another sin. I know that is not true. I know I
sin and I know you do to. We canít help it.
That is why we have Jesus. I donít intentionally go
out and commit a sin in any way but I still sin and so do
you. It is okay for us to condemn the sin but it is
not up to us to condemn the sinner. God said we are
to love our neighbor and that means all of them, not just
those who believe as we believe and do as we do.
Homosexuality is just one sin among many.
