Is Homosexuality Against God’s Word?
Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or encouragement.
I am not pro-homosexuality but have come in contact with several homosexual people in my life, and I must admit that they, in general very nice people. That is not the problem; the problem is that God considers homosexuality a sin.
The media has given a lot of attention to homosexuality in the past number of years. See if you can see the light about what God has commanded us on the topic of homosexuality. Homosexuality is no worse than any other sin in the eyes of God. If you are in a homosexual relationship and are interested in discovering a new way of life, please call 1-800-633-3446. Do not be mistaken; anything against God’s will is considered a sin. ~ Bill Greguska

What Else Does The Bible Say About Homosexuality?
The Bible teaches that homosexuality is a sin but also that pride is a sin, jealousy is a sin, hate is a sin, and evil thoughts are a sin. So I don’t think homosexuality should be chosen as the overwhelming sin we are doing today. ~ Billy Graham
1 Corinthians 6:12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything,”—but I will not be mastered by anything.

What Do You Know About Homosexuality?
The message many gays and lesbians his ear is that God hates them. See why this is not true. What does the Bible say about the topic of homosexuality? Do you feel being a homosexual is a personal choice to be made? Did God create people to be homosexual? There is a good chance of knowing someone gay or lesbian at work, school, or community.
The question is not whether homosexuality is right or wrong for you. But the real problem is what God says about homosexuality and whether it honors Him or not. Yes, the Bible tells us that homosexuality is a sin, yet many people forget that fact is no different from stealing, lying, rage, witchcraft, etc. All sin is an offense against a Holy God and causes a separation between God and us. Jesus Christ died for all of our sins, not just some.

Is Being Homosexual A Genetic Thing?
Do Not Hear Me Wrong!
I am not saying that homosexual people can not be good people because I believe that a substantial percentage of them are decent people. I am saying that the Bible instructs us to flee from all sexual immorality. 1 Corinthians 6:18
Let us stop pointing our fingers at others because three fingers are looking right back at you when we do that. God calls us to love one another. If we are aware that homosexuality is a sin, and if we love one another, we will share that with them in a caring and loving way, without passing judgment on them because each one of us has our sins that Satan uses to try to destroy us, but rather pointing them to what God’s word says about homosexuality.
It would be unloving not to say something to someone who thinks homosexuality is perfectly fine; my point is that the truth about all sins needs to be exposed to the light of God’s word, not only the sin of homosexuality. ~ Bill Greguska
God Has Given Us The Bible As The Reference Point
To be wise, we must follow God’s will. Otherwise, there are often consequences for doing things our way. God isn’t punishing us. All He is doing is protecting us from ourselves. When we do things our way, things don’t function as well as doing things His way.
If people waited to have sex until they were in a committed, loving marriage, there would be far fewer sexually transmitted diseases, abortions, unwanted pregnancies, and children growing up without two parents in their lives. Sex has gotten out of control.
A Quick Reference Guide About Homosexuality
Galatians 5:19-21 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
God’s Way, Or Satan’s Way?
God intended sex to be a beautiful thing between one man and one woman for keeping the world populated. Our sinful world has attempted to change what God meant for good. Here are a couple of definitions of how sex has gotten distorted and evil.
Definition of debauchery = extreme indulgence in bodily pleasures and especially sexual pleasures: behavior involving sex, drugs, alcohol, etc., that is often considered immoral
Definition of lewd = crude and offensive in a sexual way. “she began to gyrate to the music and sing a lewd song.”
Definition of lascivious = filled with or showing sexual desire: lewd, lustful, lascivious acts/thoughts
Homosexuality Is Not Another “Alternative Lifestyle.”
In the Hebrew-Christian Bible, there are multiple times in both the Old and New Testaments where homosexuality is. Other immoral activities are also explicitly condemned as dishonorable to God and the natural order (the way things were designed to work) and destructive to those involved. An entire chapter in the Old Testament lists specific activities and calls them “detestable,” stating in no uncertain terms, “Stay away!” The New Testament uses five terms to describe male and female homosexual conduct: “unnatural” and “indecent.” Scripture throughout forbids us to be sexually involved in seven areas: with parents, with children, with brothers and sisters, with another spouse, with animals, with dead people, and of the same sex. These never change. Homosexuality is no greater or less of a sin than any other sin. If you are in a homosexual relationship and you want to get out of that way of life, then please feel free to call 1-800-633-3446

Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. 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.
Romans 1:26-27 ESV
For this reason, God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Jude 1:7 ESV
Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

1 Corinthians 6:9 ESV

1 Timothy 1:10 ESV
The sexually immoral men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,
Romans 1:26-28 ESV
For this reason, God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.
Mark 10:6-9 ESV
But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore, a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
Romans 1:26 ESV
For this reason, God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;

Romans 1:18-32 ESV
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools.
1 Timothy 1:8-10 ESV
Now we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine.
1 Corinthians 7:2 ESV
But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
