Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.(NIV, Romans -27) As with many Bible topics, there are uncertainties and different opinions about how the Biblical evidence should be interpreted.Jesus never mentioned homosexuality, but He did condemn all forms of sexual immorality: What comes out of you is what defiles you.For from within, out of your hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?Homosexual acts are mentioned in seven Bible passages: The first mention in the Bible is in Genesis 19:1-13.The wicked men of Sodom attempted a homosexual rape of two messengers from God who had come to visit Lot.The challenge of accurate interpretation is to determine what message was originally intended, how it was understood by people of that time, and how the lesson should be applied in our own time.
In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.As a result of this and other widespread wickedness, God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in a storm of fire and brimstone. (NKJ, Leviticus ) Life was harsh in early Old Testament times.The next two mentions are in Leviticus You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. (NKJ, Leviticus ) If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. The Old Testament prescribed the death penalty for the crimes of murder, attacking or cursing a parent, kidnapping, failure to confine a dangerous animal resulting in death, witchcraft and sorcery, sex with an animal, doing work on the Sabbath, incest, adultery, homosexual acts, prostitution by a priest's daughter, blasphemy, false prophecy, perjury in capital cases and false claim of a woman's virginity at the time of marriage.There are two other New Testament mentions of homosexual acts, in Romans -27 and 1 Timothy 1:8-10.In this passage from Romans, again in the context of idolatry, Paul mentions women who "exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones." This is the only mention of lesbian acts: They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-- who is forever praised. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.
