20 Best Bible Verses About Homosexuality Found In The Bible
There’s no sugar-coating Homosexuality. I’ve never understood how anyone could choose a homosexual lifestyle. I personally have family members and also worked with people who have lived this lifestyle. Do I agree with a gay lifestyle? Absolutely not! However, it’s NOT my place to judge one’s homosexual choice. Judgment belongs to God alone, not me. What I can do is list scriptures from God’s word about Bible verses about homosexuality.

I’m far from perfect nor have I ever claimed to be. The only perfect individual who ever lived is Jesus Christ himself. He lived a sinless life, died a criminal’s death on the cross, and was resurrected three days later so you and I can be made righteous before God.

God placed the topic of homosexuality in my heart quite some time ago but I kept pushing it far from my mind making excuses to not write it. Anyone who knows me understands how much I hate controversy hence the reason this post hasn’t been written…yet. Obeying God always wins with me…Period!
I’m extremely picky about who I allow writing a guest post for me. Plus I’m the one who writes and formats their posts before they go live. Most of the time I don’t have to change much if anything.
Needless to say, a few days ago I received another request. I asked them to give me the name of their website so I can take a look and see if their writing/morals match mine.
Friends, I was floored by this Christian website. I’m not going to name the website because that would be gossiping and condemnation. As soon as I landed on their Homepage there was a post front and center about Homosexuality, Gays, and Lesbians, and they approved of it. What? Say it isn’t so? I wish!
Why Are People Gay?
I have absolutely no clue. It’s foreign to me I suppose because I lived a very sheltered life and at the time I hated it. Now, as an adult, I’m very thankful for it.
How Would YOU Answer The Following Questions?
BE SURE TO PIN FOR LATER
My answers are at the bottom of the post.
- Is being gay a choice?
- Can gay people go to heaven?
- Can someone be both gay and Christian?
- Is homosexuality a sin according to all Christians?
- How should Christians respond to people who identify as gay?
Now, I don’t know what Bible they’re reading but I will list numerous bible verses about homosexuality for reference.
The website on the surface looked great and had outstanding posts but I had to decline due to the ONE article on homosexuality. It goes against my morals, principles, and convictions.
Most importantly it does NOT align with God’s word at all…EXCEPT to love your neighbor as yourself. I LOVE everyone!! It does NOT matter your race, origin, nationality, color of your skin…etc
We ALL bleed red. The thing is you LOVE the PERSON but HATE the SIN. Just as our Heavenly Father does. No sin is less than or greater than another. In God’s eye, it’s all the same.
Abortion is another hot topic. Just because you had an abortion doesn’t mean I think less of you. I love you and would see you as God does. It’s between you and God to repent and seek forgiveness.
What Is The Greatest Commandment?
But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together. Matthew 22:34
One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him. Matthew 22:35
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” Matthew 22:36
And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37
This is the great and foremost commandment. Matthew 22:38
The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:39
In the beginning, God created man, and then he created a woman to be his helpmate. God makes no mistakes and His intention for humans was also very clear.
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18
“That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”
So, let us go straight to the source…The written word of God…The Bible! Allow God’s words to speak for themselves…NOT Angie.

If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them. Leviticus 20:13
Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire. Jude 1:7
Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had arrogance, abundant food, and careless ease, but she did not help the poor and needy. Ezekiel 16:49

Homosexuality In The Bible
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals. 1 Corinthians 6:9
Nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:10
Such were some of you, but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11
For this reason, God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural. Romans 1:26

Realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers. 1 Timothy 1:9
Immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching. 1 Timothy 1:10
The Bible Verses About Homosexuality Are Very Clear
The Bible prohibits homosexual behavior and is against God’s natural law with severe consequences. You can be forgiven of any sin, including homosexuality.
If you want to be forgiven of any sin, you must first admit you have sinned, pray to God and ask for forgiveness, and turn away from the sin and do it no more. If you find yourself struggling find a mentor or life group member.

My Honest Answers On Gays and Lesbians | Homosexuality
I already know I’m gonna catch a lot of brutal attacks on this post as well as possibly being shunned and that is more than OK with me. Some people may even say Christians pick and choose what scriptures in the Bible they want to.
I’d rather obey God now while I still have breath in my lungs, than wait until I’m standing before Jesus Christ on judgment day having to give account for not obeying His will.
Is being gay a choice?
Yes. There’s no such thing as being “born gay” it’s a 100% choice you chose to make. I don’t believe it has anything to do with genetics, hormones, or the environment at all.
Can gay people go to heaven?
No. A Gay/Homosexual/Transgender/ etc…can not go to Heaven being Gay. Again, you must repent, seek forgiveness, and turn away from your sin.
Can someone be both gay and A Christian?
No, absolutely not! God hates sin and can not look upon it. If you say “I’m both Gay and a Christian there’s no way you can have a relationship with God until you repent, seek forgiveness, and turn away from your sin.
Is homosexuality a sin according to all Christians?
If you claim to be a born-again follower of Jesus Christ homosexuality should be a sin to ALL Christians. The sad truth of the matter is it’s becoming more and more accepted and this isn’t biblical.
How should Christians respond to people who identify as gays And Lesbians?
Born-again followers of Jesus Christ should respond with genuine love as Jesus showed love to everyone and His followers should do the same. Again, it’s not my place to judge or condemn those who chose these lifestyles.
Unless you repent, ask for forgiveness, and turn away from it, you’ll be standing before God and receiving His righteous judgment. You may not like it either.
I’ve given you many scriptures to think about and to seek God in prayer about. This is not a hate message towards homosexuality, gays and lesbians transgender, or anyone else. It’s me obeying God pouring my heart out to you to seek and study the scriptures for yourself. I LOVE YOU and hope God convicts your hearts to seek repentance and ask for His forgiveness.
