Answer: In some people’s minds, being homosexual is as much outside one’s control as the color of your skin and your height. On the other hand, the Bible clearly and consistently declares that homosexual activity is a sin (Genesis –13; Leviticus ; ; Romans –27; 1 Corinthians ).

    Homosexuality in the Bible. Interview With Authors of Exegetical Work. ROME, 12 FEB. ZENIT. Three exegetes have published a new book in which they conclude that the Bible clearly teaches homosexual practices are wrong. I grew up convinced that the Bible is clear on homosexuality as wrong. I made it very clear to a friend just two years ago that I believed his behavior was against God's will. Yet, I also know that Jesus talked more about not judging than he talked about not sinning.

    Does Homosexuality Exist In The Bible? When we read the scriptures, we see homosexuality (same sex relations) first in the Book of Gene with the story of Lot, Abraham’s brother’s son i.e. his nephew (Genesis ). In the scriptures Homosexuality is called Sodomy Here we see acts of homosexuality in the land of Sodom and Gomorrah. However, Mike Haley's book Frequently Asked Questions About Homosexuality may be just such a book. Though not as in-depth as a psychological or medical analysis of the subject might be, this book is definitely solid in regard to biblical stances on homosexuality, and the response and position congregations should have and take on this very 4/5(8).

The bible is a neutral object. It only "says" something when we act upon it. This is why we as actors must use this prop in a Shakespearean manner and not improv it as so many do : Joel L. Watts. by Matt Slick. The Bible doesn't speak of homosexuality very often; but when it does, it condemns it as 's take a look.
