Is Homosexuality a Sin?

44 posts in this topic

I've been in multiple debates recently about God and homosexuality, I want to get more people thinking about it and want to know about other people's thoughts.

Is the psychology of it (having the attraction towards the same sex) a sin in itself? Is just the acting upon the attraction the sin? Or is none of it a sin at all?

 

Another point, is that some non-Christians accuse Christians of not liking homosexuals and thinking of them as bad people. This really annoys me, how people can so easily generalise us. I myself do not understand or agree with homosexuality...but that doesn't mean I think homosexuals are bad people! We are ALL bad in the eyes of God.

 

What say you on these matters? =)

Homosexuality is a spiritual stronghold.  It is a sin, to be sure, but it is a stronghold.  It is more than addiction or an attraction.  It is a spiritual problem, that essentially has a hold on someone that nothing but the power of the Holy Spirit can dissolve.

 

Too often, our opposition to homosexuality is seen as hatred of homosexuals, and nothing could be further from the truth.  They need the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  He is their only hope.  We must love them enough to tell them the truth about their sin and point them to Christ who is the only remedy for their spiritual sickness.
