  • "Considering that nothing in the Bible says "homosexuality is a sin", its open to interpretation...


     


    The Bible interprets itself pretty well: Leviticus 18:22; 1 Cor 6:9; Rom 1:26-27 .... All of these are clear, if not read them with a Biblical dictionary on hand. Lying with the same sex is an abomination.

  • sorry I don't know what church that would be unless it is a non denominational one I mean most churches believe as well as I believe that it is wrong for a man to lay with another man and wrong for a woman to lay with another woman its even worded that way in the bible somewhere can't recall where but its in there

  • I belong to a non-denom church and we teach and preach that homosexuality is a sin. We love the sinner but hate the sin. Sadly there are churches that do teach homosexuality is not a sin and an excepted lifestyle.. some but not all united methodist, episcopalian etc.. have homosexual priests and ministers. It's sad but the Bible says things like this would happen.. many will fall away, there will be false teachers, the very elect will be deceived. That's why it's so important to not just listen to what people say or there opinions.. but open up the Bible and seek the truth of the word. For me I love the person who is a homosexual but I do not agree or support their homosexuality. The bible calls it an abomination therefore for me that is the final word on it.

  • There are churches that do, I've even have seen tv ads for one of the local churches that show a same sex couple in the pew and they make it very clear that they don't care! It's just right of the top of my head I can't think of the name of the church....but I can picture the ad.
