Does the Bible condemn homosexuality?

Standard
It’s surprising to hear homosexuals attempt to interpret the Bible. They argue against the fact that the Bible condemns homosexuality. They read and interpret the scriptures with such bias that they refuse to see the obvious. Homosexuals reject verses that clearly condemn homosexuality in the old Testament.
The verses which clearly show that the Bible condemns homosexuality include Leviticus 18:22 (KJV) which reads; “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” and Leviticus 18:30 (KJV) which also reads “If a man also lies with a man, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
 What could be clearer. The Bible condemns homosexuality!  It’s easier to understand atheist homosexuals who openly profess a non-belief in God. To such, Biblical verses mean nothing since they deny the existence of the writer.What is more worrisome ,however, is to see these same atheists attempting to interpret the Bible they don’t believe in! What contradiction! The extremely absurd however are the so-called gay-christians.
Gay-christians and their atheist/agnostic counterparts put up lame arguments against the clear truth that the Bible condemns homosexuality. What could be clearer than the statements  “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” How about the statement that “If a man also lies with a man, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
But, does the Bible really condemn homosexuality? Yes it does. The lack of understanding of the differences between the moral and ceremonial laws exposes the pitiable ignorance of men and women who know lack understanding of  the scriptures they attempt to interpret! They make reference to prohibitions about food like shrimps, pork etc.
As a proof that the Bible condemns homosexuality, could you please take a look at the dialogue in Acts 10? ; “Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. 14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. 15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed,that call not thou common.”
This discourse clearly shows the difference between dispensational, ceremonial laws from eternal, moral laws. A quick look at exodus 20 reveals what is commonly knows as the ten commandments. Do you notice that “Thou shall not kill” remains eternal despite a dimensional shift from  the old to the new testament?
Whenever religious bigots tried to enforce old testament dispensational laws on new testament believers, they met with resistance from the Lord Jesus Christ.Such was the washing of hands in Judaism which Jesus quickly dispensed with in the statement Mark 7:10; “And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.”
Another principle in the interpretation of old testament scriptures is that while time-limited dispensational guides are dispensed with in the New testament, eternal truths are carried over, re-emphasized and re-established in the New testament.
Consider the clear command, “Thou shall not commit adultery.” In Matthew 5:27-28, Jesus teaches 27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
In like manner, the old testament commands; “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” How about the statement that “If a man also lies with a man, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” are eternal truths rather than time-limited dispensational guides. Why? They are re-emphasized in the New Testament as shown below;
Romans 1:27 (KJV) “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.”
Again, I Corinthians 6:9 (KJV) reads “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind”
Furthermore, Jude 1:7 (KJV) declares;”Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
One other principle in the interpretation of scriptures is the law of first mention.  An excuse given by homosexuals who claim that sodomites were destroyed for their lack of hospitality rather than their sexual perversion in Genesis 19. It is however foolhardy ignorance to accept that position because Leviticus makes it clear why the sodomites were destroyed. It was because of an abomination. Leviticus left us in no doubt of what that abomination was;  “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”
With that clarification and taking the Old and new Testament references together makes rubbish of insinuations that the new the new testament only condemned homosexual prostitutes or heterosexuals who practiced homosexuality. This has been referred to as ” unreasonable mental gymnastics.” A desperate attempt to “naturalize” an unnatural sexual perversion!
You can therefore choose what to believe, BUT the Biblical position is clear.
Bottom-line: the Bible condemns homosexuality. QED.
