It is. God created sex for a very particular place - marriage between a man and a woman. Anything outside of that, whether it's a threesome, fornication or homosexuality, is a sin - something that is in contradiction to how life was created to be.That doesn't mean there's no empathy or even sympathy for people struggling with it, the same as someone struggling with incest or a desire for someone other than their spouse. As long as we live in a world full of sin we will have desires that don't align with what should be, and sexual desire is no exception
Casual sex, masturbation, blowjobs and any premarital sex is a sin too.
@hise-DepartmenT what do you think fornication means? LolAs for masturbation, it's lust that's the sin, technically. It's just normally highly unlikely to manage the former without the latter
Exactly! Any type of sexual activity that doesn't result in pregnancy is a sin?
@pad879 What? Where did I say that?
I agree that gay sexual intercourse is a sin according to parts of the Bible but it is no more significant than other sins heterosexual people commit daily!
You didn't, the Bible does more or less does though.
@pad879Ever known a woman who had casual sex want to keep her casual sex partner's baby? It's all about pleasure with them, not family.
@pad879 No, it does not. I've heard that rhetoric a million times before at land it's no more true now then it was the first time. The very fact that you have to say "more or less" reveals how certain you even are yourself that it bears any resemblance to the truth.What does calling homosexuality a sin have anything to do with the sins of anyone else? Does that make it any less a sin?
I'm not saying it's any less of a sin. I am saying that it is not seen as a worse sin than other sins the majority of people make. I know that this doesn't necessarily mean homosexuality isn't a sin but it's unfair that so much attention is drawn towards it being sinful and wrong when millions of people are sinning every second in other ways and they don't have to feel ashamed...
In Christianity those behaviors are treated as sins as well. But which draws more attention? Being called a bigot for not hosting a gay wedding or a sermon about fornication?
It's just what you see in the news.
Fair point. Thanks for the answer
@pad879 Glad to be of help
I do believe it's a sin buuuut I don't believe it should be more shamed than any other sin like you're going to be executed for it or something. People's decisions on who they love is their choice, not their peers. I feel like I kinda strayed off the subject though, lol
I understand you. There is no bigger emphasis on committing gay acts than being drunk for example in the Christian bible and people get drunk all the time...
that's cause you are both young and don't see the affects of what's going on
1) GOD EXIST END OF STORY EASY TO PROVE 2) gay people try to turn others gay that's more people in hell3) its is part of satans plan Genesis 3and GOD said to satan one of eves kids is gonna kill you so how can you stop that from happening? convincing people they are gay 4) being born gay a lie by the people, no one is born gay 5) gay people run on feelings, the heart is corrupt and in sin, are feelings do not matter in generaland I can keep going
No, we see it even in animals, them being "bisexual/gay" in nature. So why not humans... my male dog would hump other males. We see this in other animals too. Females with females, males with males. Something people need to understand too... being gay, lesbian, bi, whatever... isn't all about sex... their attraction is mentally... emotional too.. they're attracted to the same sex, or whatever in a way more than sexually. I don't believe there is a god an sin... in the sense of needing his forgiveness. But, people do bad things of course. No, it's not a sin, not wrong, not odd, not anything bad. It boils down to this, we have one life, be yourself, be with who you want, an be happy... an don't care what people say on it.
Animals are guided by instincts. They don't possess a moral conscience of right or wrong, so don't compare humans to animals.
@Hispanic-Cool-Guy I will say what I want to, anytime I want to. I will make any comparison that I want to, when I want to. And there was no comparison, my comment states that I said we are the same. And animals do have a sense of right an wrong. Animals mourn, get sad, cry, get angry, feel ashamed, fearful, happy, jealous, you name it. My point was... animals have sexual attraction to their own sex/gender... there is no god... who made us different than animals is my point... it's not wrong, not a sin to be gay, period. Who the hell are you to order me to not say something? dream on.
@Hispanic-Cool-Guy That's what I thought, now stfu.
No. I don't believe God would make you that way just to damn you. I believe our only damnation is the good/evil we put out into the world. Why can heterosexuals get married and divorced within hours (divorced used to mean you would get stoned to death) but gay couples who have been together for years are "ruining the sanctity of marriage?" Doesn't make sense to me.
yes I believe it is a sin and should be shamed gay people are lost either by accident or on purposeGOD made them man and women and yes I will be abusive in my statements cause the truth is out nowall Glory has been given to my Lord Jesus Christ above the dome, LGBT AND THE STRAIGHT PEOPLE THAT SUPPORT THEMare now without excuse anyone who makes the choice to follow them it just means they are stupid JOB 37:18hast thou with him spread out the sky which is strong and as a molten looking glassthe reflection of the sun and moon show the power of my GOD the waters above the dome show his judgementand the old testament shows his love Glory to my GOD above the watershttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAcp3BFBYw4
Unfortunately, it is a sin in the eyes of God. He describes homosexuality as an abomination. Also, who ever thinks it’s okay to do something just because animals do it must also have some pretty low standards. Lust is another sin as mentioned above.However, you should keep in mind that all sins are weighed equally in the eyes of God. If you’ve broken one then you’ve broken them all. We’re all sinners and his commandments are there to remind us that left to our own devices we fall short of righteousness, but with him we are forgiven and are given strength to persevere and know a new freedom and peace.
I don't know how anyone here can go against scripture and say it’s not a sin based on humanly justifications. For those who say people are born gay or born feeling like a boy/girl/frog, how do you explain how a vast majority of those who consider themselves homosexuals tend to have the same characteristics, mannerisms and flamboyant nature? Because these are learned traits, not something someone is inherently born with. I’m straight and I can say certain men are attractive, doesn’t mean I’m gay. A lot of it has to do with your upbringing, environment, circumstances and more. I know some who have said they were born gay and later on became bisexual and eventually straight. Our minds are a peculiar thing.
No. Some of the kindest people I have ever met were gay. It is not a sin for them to be attracted to whomever they are attracted to. Nobody gets hurt.Imagine how horrible it must be to have other people calling it a sin when you're attracted to someone. To have society comparing it to bestiality.The only sin is the religious people who are responsible for so much hatred because they choose to blindly follow scripture that was written in a more ignorant age than today.
No, because people are born gay. I grew up with a lot of kids around the block and one of my best friend who was very feminine from a young age told his mom he was attracted to other boys at the age of 11. He told me after that crying asking if we could still be friends. He didn't chose to be gay... he was literally just born like that. How can we say that someone is just a sinner because of the way they were born when it's completely out of their control?
If God wanted me to be straight he wouldn't have made me attracted to girls 😂
I assume you mean guys? 😂
Nevermind, I'm new to the app and didn't realise you were a girl
God didn't create you. Creation was finshed in Genesis.
Yes because it's a choice to rebel against God's sexuality He placed upon all creatures.It's amazing how people believe if you're born homosexual, then it must be right.People are born male and born female too. Does that mean it's not right to be a transgender? You're not born a transgender.
Thank you. I was born with a tendency to be kinda violent does that mean is ok if I give into my desires to like to fight?
I can see where you're coming from but is it not unfair that heterosexual people can love anyone they want without being judged but gay people can't for being born a certain way? They don't choose to be gay- if they did it would be crazy because they would just be putting more stress on themselves for example coming out and not being accepted.
But the thing is no study can 100% verify it's an orientation rather than a preference.That's why some say sexual orientation and some say sexual preference.
From my understanding they don't choose to be attracted to the same gender but they DO choose to act upon these feelings.
Yes it is. It's unnatural of the order God created. God made man with a penis and a woman with vagina for them to have sex with each other and enjoy each other's body. Not a penis to be inside a man mouth or butt or a woman licking another woman's vagina etc.
Fair point but you are also admitting that oral and anal sex are wrong.
Even between a male and a female
It's not a sin between a man and a woman. Only for those of the same sex that participate in sodomy.
But heterosexual people have anal sex too?
As well as oral which are both considered selfish and they do not have connection to procreation!
It's not about procreation always. God made man and woman to enjoy their bodies sexually how they see fit for themselves and what they like.
And what if it turns out they only like it with the same gender?
I don't know if this is what you meant but I'm not
I do not believe it to be a sin, but then I'm also not religious.Apart from that, I also don't find it unnatural, even if I am Heterosexual myself.
Lol no. If your not hurting anyone else then so your thing.
Im atheist so not a sin really but in an apocalyptic scenarios we would all have to do our part
Sinning is a concept created by the church. It doesn't actually exist.
Omg I agree. I believe the Vatican has changed so much throughout the years. What I would give to get my hands on their archives!
no its not. Being gay is cool. It is not a sin if you are created like that
No. Because who you are atteacted to is caused by chemicals in your brain.
Not hurting anyone, not a sin
No. Sin is a manmade concept.
I don't know, what does it even mean to “be gay”?
To be attracted to the same gender...
No, it’s not a sin to be attracted to people of the same gender. Lust is a sin. So acting on that desire or attraction is the sin.
But don't most 'straight' heterosexual people also act on lust?
And? I’m sure they do but what does that have to do with the question? The question was about being gay. Your answer was that gay is being attracted to people of the same sex. That in itself isn’t a sin. “Gay” people can also procreate with people of the opposite sex. That also is not a sin.Straight couples can do one thing gay pairings cannot. Procreate, which isn’t a sin.
Very good answer! Thanks
Here’s one thing a lot of people both Christians and atheists fail to understand. We have all sinned at one point or another. The point is that we accept our burden to always work for something better. Rejection of people that have sinned is called judgment. Only God judges. The rest of us must follow the example of Jesus Christ. No one is worse than me, we all are sinners, and we should all have love for one another. That includes accepting people that we may not necessarily agree with. That is the Proper Christian way.
Ever thought of doing a TED X talk or being a pastor? 😂
Nope, only the religious nuts think it is
Not at all
