What does the Bible say about homosexuality? (Rom. 1:27)

The Bible says that it is an abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman, or a woman to lie with a woman as with a man (Lev. 18:2; 20:13). The Bible says because of certain abominations such as homosexuality, a land will vomit out its inhabitants (Lev. 18:25). The apostle Paul called it “shameful,” the result of being given up by God to “vile passions” (Rom. 1:24-27).

In the Old Testament, those who practiced these things were removed from the congregation of Israel by execution. We are told in the New Testament that those who practice homosexuality will not enter the kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9, 10). The apostle Paul shows homosexuality as a final order of rebellion against God. When people exchange the truth of God for a lie, and begin to worship the creature instead of the Creator, they are given up to evil. When values are turned upside down and moral anarchy appears, men burn with lust for other men and woman burn for women, and they will receive in their own bodies the punishment for their actions (Rom. 1:22 – 27). From a biblical standpoint, the rise of homosexuality is a sign that a society is in the last stages of decay.
