I don’t know how people can come to the conclusion that homosexuality is okay with God, despite such a clear statement from God in the Bible: “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.” (Leviticus 18:22; NIV), or as another translation says, “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.” (Leviticus 18:22; NLT)
Homosexuality was sin.
Homosexuality is sin today.
Homosexuality will be sin in 857,512 years.
And since God does not change, of course, His attitude toward sin does not change (homosexuality is only one of many sins that we humans, unfortunately, commit). “I the Lord do not change …” (God in Malachi 3:6; NIV).
God always respects our free will (because free will is an essential attribute of God, according to whose image we are created in our true self, our spirit; see Genesis 1:26, Genesis 2:7). And God never becomes unfaithful to Himself (He doesn’t deny Himself; see 2 Timothy 2:13).

If someone desires to sin, they are not hindered with a lightning strike from God. He tells us more than clearly what is good and what is bad.
“Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.” (Romans 1:26-28; NIV)
- How can a loving God send people to hell? God doesn’t send anyone to hell; people make the wrong choice
Have you found Jesus? Your flawless sacrificial Lamb, who took the punishment for your sins and leads you away more and more from all sinful filth? We sin with more than just one sin; we need Jesus, who reconciles us to God.
