What does your religion say about homosexuality?

The Atheist Perspective

Naturalists abide by what scientific methods establish from empirical observation and study. In other words, we follow the actual facts. And from those facts we know that homosexuality is a natural and healthy variation of sexuality that is harmless to society and even socially beneficial, while attitudes and behavior hostile to homosexuality do physical and emotional harm without any benefit and are therefore immoral.

The Christian Perspective

The Bible makes it very clear that homosexual behavior is in direct opposition to God's commands for us (1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:10; Romans 1:26-27; Genesis 19; Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13).

The Bible also makes it clear that everyone is born with a predisposition toward sin (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:10-23, 5:12).

However, God offers His forgiveness to those who will repent and turn to Him, homosexual and heterosexual alike (Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9-11; John 1:12; 1 Corinthians 6:11).

If you have been caught up in the sin of homosexuality, or any other sin, these actions are the very reason that Jesus, God the Son, bled and died on the cross. He took on the penalty and judgment for our crimes against the holy and perfect Creator (Romans 3:25; Hebrews 2:11; 1 John 2:2; 1 John 4:10). He did this so that, if we put our trust in Him, our sins would not be charged against us (Psalm 32:2; Romans 4:8).

He now calls on all men everywhere to repent and turn to Him (Acts 17:30). That includes you.
