Homosexuality through the Teachings of the Bible

As generation passes by, traditions and culture also changes. Different practices are also being made and even the trend continue to change. Think about homosexuality. What do you think about it? Nowadays, people regard it as normal. However, when we base it from the teachings of the Bible, homosexuality is a sin. What is homosexuality, then?

For example, when a man is sexually attracted with another man, that is homosexuality. The case is not only about man-to-man relationship. It is also applied in female-to-female relationship. Why is it that these things are happening today?

According to the teachings of the Bible, God forbade us to commit sexual immorality and homosexuality. Even if a person is attracted to the same gender as his, he must not let himself commit that kind of sin against God. Where did this kind of sin originated from? In the old testament times, at the time of Lot who lives in Sodom and Gomorrah, the people were very wicked.

At that time, in order to warn Lot and his family so that they can escape from the disaster that God will bring upon Sodom and Gomorrah, God sent His two angels. So, they came in human likeness. God said that the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin is so grievous. So, when the two angels arrived at Sodom, Lot saw them and invited them to his house.

However, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom, both young and old, surrounded the house of Lot and called out to him to bring out his visitors so that they can have sex with them. Now, is there any difference? It’s totally the same sin being committed by the people.
