What the Bible says about homosexuality and same-sex marriage
The American Bible says that homosexual conduct is “a detestable, abhorrent and detestably wicked act.”
It says that “every male who looks on a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
It also says that those who do not obey the commandment of God “shall surely be put to death.”
These teachings are part of the Bible’s teaching on homosexuality.
But the Bible doesn’t have a complete list of sins for homosexual behavior.
According to the American Association of Christian Counselors, there are several sins that are considered “offenses against the natural law” and are punishable by death or life imprisonment.
There is also a prohibition against homosexual behavior that is not specifically mentioned in the Bible, but which is explicitly mentioned in Leviticus 19.
These prohibitions include adultery, bestiality, sodomy, and incest.
However, there is no explicit reference to homosexual behavior in Levitical law.
For example, there’s no mention of homosexuality in the Old Testament.
There are several passages that speak about homosexuality in scripture.
For instance, the Old and New Testaments both speak of homosexual activity and the sexual acts between men and women.
These passages are found in Lev.
19:20-23, the sexual act between a man and a woman is referred to as an “adultery,” and the man and woman are referred to in Genesis 1:26 as “men and women.”
According to Biblical scholar and author David S. Hodge, these passages are in direct contradiction to what Christians in general believe about homosexuality.
Huddle says, “These passages clearly show that homosexuality is a sin.
The Old Testament clearly shows that homosexual behavior is a detestables, abhorrence and detestsably wicked practice.
Yet, in Levitanic law, homosexual conduct was a sin punishable by the death penalty.”
Hodge argues that, in fact, homosexuality was not mentioned in Genesis until Leviticuistic law was written in the seventh century BC.
For many centuries, many biblical scholars believed that Leviticiistic law contained the first official legal definition of homosexuality.
Yet Hodge says, there was no direct reference to homosexuality in Levutical law until Levitual law was recorded in the sixth century AD.
Huddles work, The Law of God in Ancient Israel: A Study of Jewish Law, was published in 1998.
According, Hodge explains, “The Bible is the most reliable source of biblical law, because it is based on a large body of oral tradition.
As a result, the Bible is full of laws and regulations that are based on what the people themselves actually observed, observed, and practiced.
And these laws are the basis for many of the legal rulings in the Christian law tradition.”
Huddle is the author of many books on Biblical Law and his work has been used by countless Christians to understand how God operates.
The Law is not the only book in the bible.
Hoyle says, In the Bible there are many laws, regulations, and statutes of the Lord’s Day.
These laws and statutes have to do with matters of human welfare, morality, and law and order.
