Where does it say in the bible that same sex marriage is a sin?
I just want to know where it says in the bible that same sex marriage is a sin. I haven’t found it in there and so if you could give me some insight that would be great. Thanks.
There are several places where it condemns homosexuality, using the words of that time (of course, a homosexual can quit what they’re doing and be forgiven).
One is in the apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans, the first chapter, verses 24-27:
“Therefore God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, gave them up to uncleanness, that their bodies might be dishonored among them, 25 even those who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and venerated and rendered sacred service to the creation rather than the One who created, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature; 27 and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error. ”
And again, briefly, in Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, chapter 6, verses 9 and 11:
“What! Do YOU not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men, 10 nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit God’s kingdom. 11 And yet that is what some of YOU were. But YOU have been washed clean, but YOU have been sanctified, but YOU have been declared righteous in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God.”
