What does the Bible teach about same-sex practice? Here are some verses that talked about homosexuality.

Is homosexuality a sin? what is your interpretation of these verses that warn against homosexuals.

 

1. Leviticus 18:22 - Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.

2. Leviticus 20:13 - If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.

3. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 - Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat peoplenone of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

4. Jude 7 - And don't forget Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion. Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God's judgment.

5. Romans 1:26-27 - Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

even if it is a sin you shouldn't force them to not be gay, "love thy neighbor" means everyone not people we just like, forcing someone to not be alive is as wrong as saying that someone shouldn't be gay

1. the original word was "kid" not man
2. many translations instead of "homosexual" say man, see 1
3. many bibles instead of "or practice homosexuality" have "nor abusers of themselves with men" which probably refers to suicide
4. People who lived in these plains areas were known to be especially cruel to travelers and beggars. They enjoyed making these people suffer greatly. There are many accounts in which the people of Sodom and Gomorrah have been recorded raping, murdering, and torturing innocent people. Do i need to explain why they were destroyed?
5. see 1
