    Default Why is Homosexuality a Sin?

    I get that it's wrong to have sex with others of your gender, as it states so clearly in the Bible. But what it doesn't clarify is why marriage between two of the same sex is forbidden. What damage will it do, or what good will it not do that a normal marriage would? I'm not LGBTQ myself, nor do I believe that homosexuality is anything but a curse laid on mankind, but I want to understand why it's a bad idea in God's eyes.

    Its demonic. It brings hard spiritually, mentally and physically in the end one way or the other. It brings a curse with it. It is disobeying Gods will and command from creation. Its a lot.

    Im not trying to be rude but I am wondering.. Did you ever read the bible and try to understand Gods view on this? Did you ever study it yourself? Or ask God to help you understand?

    Well simply because it reverses Gods created order. God instituted marriage between a man and a women and therefore the context has been set and one of Gods means of blessing is through marriage.

    Also with that being said God has done it like so because anything more or less than that opens us up even more to harm and damage. Marriage as God as the bedrock acts as a refuge against sin, especially sexual sin.

    SO concluding with that marriage also entails a spectacular reward that is reserved only for a newly wed husband and wife. That is the intimacy and the expression of love between both the man and the women. This in essence reserves both great joy and pleasure without breaking Gods commandments. Something you cannot do as a homosexual because it is not recognized by God as an expression of love but rather lust because it goes against what God instituted.

    You said you get why its wrong to have same gender sex so you should understand why its wrong for people of the same gender to get married. In marriage, you have sex with your partner. As you said, homosexuality is a curse on humanity. You pretty much answered your own question. Its wrong in God's eyes because he created male and female for each other and that's how he wants it. That's how he always wanted it. If God wanted gays to be together you would be seeing men being impregnated by other men. God doesn't like it when men are feminine and he doesn't want a woman acting like a man. Sorry if my answer sounds basic or rude.

    Hmmm. I'm content on knowing homosexuality is a sin because God says so. It's enough reason really.
    As far as same sex marriage, well marriage is not a legalistic thing made by man. Marriage is not made by a contract or license issued by the government. A marriage is made between a man, a woman, and God by affirmation of an oath or vows. Then the two become one flesh. Generally part of becoming one flesh is the man parts marrying to the woman parts and then multiplying. This is all in the first 2 chapters of the bible. How could it not be clearer? Some, God gives the gift of marriage, others he does not. Some, God gives the gift of offspring, others he does not.
    We don't need to know why God wants it this way, just that is what he wants. Just have faith that God is right and has our best interest in mind.

    This is got to be the 100th homosexuality thread this past 3 months.

    Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

    When a man and a woman marry,God sees one flesh,therefore He does not see sin,and looks at the marriage as love.

    God does not see homosexuality as love,but lust,especially when God did not design people of the same sex to be together like that.

    Also God designed the body parts for a certain function,and for the men,God did not design that part of the body for that purpose.

    Okay, straight up time... lol.. Marriage between two of the same sex is wrong, because two men have no business shooping each other, and two women have no business shooping each other. A man's penis was made for a woman's vagina, and vice versa.. A man's penis wasn't made for the poop chute of another man. And a woman's vagina wasn't made for another woman.

    Having sex with your same gender is wrong. God says it's wrong. The bible says it's wrong. And COMMON SENSE (which is rare around here), should tell you it's wrong. What damage does it do? Well, it does spiritual harm, put's your salvation at risk, not to mention your health. STD's, and also a man's rectum wasn't made to have a penis put into it.. NO ONE'S rectum was made to have a foreign object put into it.. JMO, but it should be clearly obvious why God don't like homosexuality.

    Adam had eve in him. They were 1 and God separated them so they weren't a singular being.. She was the physical manifestation of the attributes he already possessed.. No one understands the 'trinity'... Adam and eve as one were made in their image... Marriage, you return to that as close as its possible... 2 of the same gender cannot

    Your profile says you're a Christian, and you've been on the forum for a year and a half.

    Surely you've heard this discussed before... there's an active thread about this on CC almost every day.



    * So why don't you tell us what brought this up?
    * Why did you suddenly feel the need to come on CC, on Christmas day, and start a new thread, about homosexual marriage?

    For the same reason eating a piece of fruit was wrong from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God said don't do it. When we do we are disobeying God. There are several things God asks us not to do this isn't the only thing.

    it is against God's design -- simple as that. God knows what is best for us so we should follow His plan and design instead of trying to fight against it. God does not like rebellion as you can easily see because of how satan ended up as a result of turning on God.

    In the end, life is filled with all manner of temptations and homosexuality is just another one of those that some people have to face. But, we all have temptations whether it is homosexuality, fornication, adultery, money, desires, food, or whatever -- there is always going to be something.

    I would say that homosexuality is high up on the list of difficult sins to deal with, but there are plenty of people who make a decision to seek God and marry properly instead falling into homosexuality. I have a lot of respect for those that can do this. Another example would be women who have been raped and because of their beliefs refuse to have an abortion because they don't want to murder a child. Tough choices and strong convictions -- its impressive and will be rewarded.

    Let's be real, life is unfair, but life as we know it is only temporary -- time passes so quickly and in a blink of the eye this world will come to completion. Remember satan's goal is to distract us so that we don't spread the gospel, so our desires, worries, and everything else of this world is just there to pull us away from our real purpose, which is to help bring others back to God.

    Anything outside of God's word is sin, its not the act itself, the issue is that whoever is doing the sin is agreeing to and submitting to something outside of His word... as a child of God that,s like bowing your knee to the wrong kingdom.

    Why is homosexuality a sin according to God? Here are some verses which reveal why God says it is wrong for men to have sexual relationships with men and women to have sexual relationships with women. Something our culture does not understand and also does not want to understand at the same time. They can sometimes agree with the rest of the Bible but usually not this because they have a skewed view due to the darkness they are a part of and do not understand and/or know what love is according to God and not sinful man.

    Genesis 2:18-24

    The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”


    Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.


    But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.


    The man said,


    “This is now bone of my bones
    and flesh of my flesh;
    she shall be called ‘woman,’
    for she was taken out of man.”
    That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

    Genesis 19:1-15

    The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.”


    “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.”


    But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”


    Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”


    “Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.


    But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. 11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.


    The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”


    So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the Lord is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.


    With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.”

    Judges 19:20-28

    “You are welcome at my house,” the old man said. “Let me supply whatever you need. Only don’t spend the night in the square.” So he took him into his house and fed his donkeys. After they had washed their feet, they had something to eat and drink.


    While they were enjoying themselves, some of the wicked men of the city surrounded the house. Pounding on the door, they shouted to the old man who owned the house, “Bring out the man who came to your house so we can have sex with him.”


    The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, don’t be so vile. Since this man is my guest, don’t do this outrageous thing. Look, here is my virgin daughter, and his concubine. I will bring them out to you now, and you can use them and do to them whatever you wish. But as for this man, don’t do such an outrageous thing.”


    But the men would not listen to him. So the man took his concubine and sent her outside to them, and they raped her and abused her throughout the night, and at dawn they let her go. At daybreak the woman went back to the house where her master was staying, fell down at the door and lay there until daylight.


    When her master got up in the morning and opened the door of the house and stepped out to continue on his way, there lay his concubine, fallen in the doorway of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, “Get up; let’s go.” But there was no answer. Then the man put her on his donkey and set out for home.

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

    1 Corinthians 6:9-11
    Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

    There are many other verses in the Scriptures that condemn homosexuality as well as other sins. God bless you. Have a Merry Christmas and a blessed morning, day, and/or night.

    It tears apart family every which way. It destroys the person himself/herself every which way. (Life expectancy lowers by 1-2 decades because of legitimate health concerns -- AIDS IS a homosexual disease. That it has entered into the hetrosexual community means that there are bisexuals too -- and the degradation needed to pursue such encounters and being so unsure of yourself that you cannot identify with your gender is so bad it often leads to suicide.) And it destroys society. In the course of history, every civilization that ever accepted homosexuality was already on a path of death.

    A better question is why should we boister up two people in serious need of mental and emotional help to get them to marry someone equally as dangerous to themselves? How can that ever become a healthy marriage? How can that be healthy for a family? How can that be healthy for society?

    God's law makes sense.
