What does the Bible say about same-sex (homosexual, gay, lesbian) practice?

Updated: Jul 22

The Bible defines marriage in as a union between one man and one woman. Genesis 2:24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. In passages that contain instructions regarding marriage, such as 1Cor. 7:2-16 and Ephesians 5:23-33, the Bible clearly identifies marriage as being between a man and a woman. This clearly means any sexual union should only be between a husband and a wife. Same-sex practice is specifically highlighted as sinful a number of times in Scripture. In God’s Law, for example, condemnations of same-sex practice are given in Leviticus 18:22 and Leviticus 20:13 - If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. Further references are made in the New Testament. For example, in Romans 1:24-32, amid echoes to the Genesis creation account, both male and female same-sex practice are treated as sinful. Further references to the sinfulness of same-sex practice can be seen in - 1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men - 1 Timothy 1:10
