A dumb excuse from people who wants to pet the sin of sodomy, “the word homosexual is not in the bible!” Yes its not there, so is the word computers and there are computers. The word homosexual didn’t came into use until 1892. If you have the right Bible its translated 1611. The AV (Authorized Version) used the term “sodomites” (refering to people of sodom which is full of abominable acts, Gen. 18-19). All around scripture that word is used.
Gen 19:5 “And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.” (emphasis added) The AV uses word “know” which in the context would mean to make physical relations. And as proof continue in verse 7&8 it says “And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, I bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. Lot sets out a bad deal with this people, he would allow his daughters to lose their purity (thats what not knowing a man meant) and have them rape his daughters; just to get the men of Sodom off the feet of his guest. The passage clearly states the atrocities these people are capable. The main reason why God destroyed the city and many other of the same degree.
The Bible also uses other terms to describe and point out how much an abomination sodomy (homosexuality, some people don’t want to called a sodomite but that’s what the bible use so I’ll use it). Example is in 1 Cor. 6:9 “…Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind” in the next verse it say’s shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Effeminacy means men acting like women. In Romans 1 which is the most definitive text God gave on the subject. It is repeatedly mentions “God gave them up”. but to what, verse 26 of Romans 1 “to vile affections”. God in his wrath gave them over to do that which the bible calls unseemly. People who does not heed to what God says will end up in this road; to which often times is hard to do a 180 turn. Continuing on the study in Romans 1:26 its “against nature” women with women, in verse 27 “their error” men with men will receive a recompense.
Homosexuality (Sodomy) is in the Bible, like we have looked through, but like many other sin it can be forgiven. Jesus Christ did not die in vain, He shed His blood so that all sin will be forgiven and taken away. Even sodomy, murder, lust, fornication, adultery and idolatry. But you have to make a decision to Repent of your sin (means to turn from your sin to God). And put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Receiving the Gift of everlasting life.
