The Homosexual Lifestyle vs.
Biblical Christianity

The following is a conversation I had with Monique, a practicing lesbian who visited this website and took issue with the article, "Homosexual Marriage?". This conversation takes the form of several e-mail posts from January 26-27, 1999.

But the Bible teaches that any kind of homosexual activity is sin and an
abomination before God. God does not condone homosexual activity, even in
a so-called "marriage" arrangement. Man may condone it, attempt to
sanctify it through a marriage ceremony, and say it is all right, but
God's Word teaches that people who engage in this sinful lifestyle will
not enter the kingdom of God.

Leviticus 18:22
"You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an

1 Corinthians 6:9
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of
God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor
adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the
covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the
kingdom of God."

Romans 1:18-32
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because
that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it
evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible
attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen,
being understood through what has been made, so that they are without
excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or
give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their
foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools,
and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form
of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling
creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to
impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they
exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the
creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 

"For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women
exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the
same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and
burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing
indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their

"And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer,
God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not
proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil;
full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips,
slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of
evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy,
unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that
those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the
same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them."

Monique, the Bible plainly calls homosexual activity a sin, but
God can deliver a person from this sin. Such people need Jesus. They need
to repent of their sins, turn to Jesus Christ, and be saved. Saved not
only in the sense of going to heaven, but saved from the sins that bind
