Skip to comments.Lesbianism in the Bible (help)
Posted on 06/26/2003 1:09:25 PM PDT by netmilsmom
I need help from those who know the Bible. Could someone please tell me the exact quote in the Bible against Lesbianism? I am in an argument with my lesbian sister who says she will change her life if I can come up with an exact quote. Help and pray she sees the light.
"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination" (Leviticus 18:22).
1:24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.
1:25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
1:26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,
1:27and 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 error.
1:28And 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,
1:29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips,
1:30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
1:31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;
1:32and 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.
Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.
Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.
THE CONSEQUENCES OF BREAKING THE LAW
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 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 recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
30 years ago, gay meant "happy", if I recall.
If she can't accept that fact, she doesn't even want to be convinced. You're probably wasting your time.
What you said is correct. But she will never see the Truth unless our Lord opens her heart and mind to it. As you see in the Roman verses, God has given them over to their vile affections. Pray and seek the Lord with your whole heart and study His Word so you may be quick to tell others of the reason for the hope you have.
1Pe 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and [be] ready always to [give] an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
To God alone be the glory!
By His grace and for His glory!
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, 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."Strange flesh" is (transliterated Greek) porneia. Porneia not only refers to fornication in general, but forbidden sex in particular: homosexuality, bestiality, incest. Others have provided you with plenty of passages that deal with homosexuality. Pay attention here to the use of Sodom and Gommorha as examples, and the duration of punishment (eternal fire).
Note: God did not create "Adam and Steve," and He didn't create "Amanda and Eve."
The intent of His creation of Adam and Eve was to make a male and a female who "corresponded" to each other.
Gen 2:20 " The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him." the idea of "suitable" is "one who corresponds to" or "one who helps." In case anyone hasn't noticed, males and females are constructed differently from one another, but they are also constructed in a way that makes them compatible...they correspond to one another. In fact, "man" is truly defined as a "male" and a "female" together. "Man" is only complete, all that God meant for "man" to be when there is a male and female together.
Gen 2:24 " For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh." The "one flesh" means that they are "one" in the eyes of the Creator. God mandated that "man" be fruitful and multiply...and impossibility for Amanda and Eve.
