Why is it Wrong to Be Gay? (Hear Me Out!)

In Genesis God says, “Let us make man in our image.” (“Our” meaning that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are One). The Father God and the Holy Spirit and the pre-incarnate Jesus are not “people.” He has no gender such as male or female. He is LOVE and does not need love from anyone; He is self-sustaining. He does not have sexual relations with anything or anyone.
So, there is no same-sex attraction physically, spiritually or emotionally with God.
So, since we are made in His image (eternal beings) there is love and there are relationships. He does love us and we do love Him, but His perfection and completeness are not dependent on whether He receives human love from us.

In Genesis it also says, “He made them male and female.” The first two beings created by God in His perfection were different sexes. He also commanded Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply.” This means to reproduce by way of natural sexual relations/ desires given by God within the confines and covenant of marriage between a man and a woman. Humans cannot reproduce- nor were they created to- when two of the same sex are involved. This is by God’s design from the beginning. All through the Bible, it’s man and woman, and in the covenant of marriage.

Despite what you may have been told or how you may feel or the earliest recollection, you were NOT “made that way.” God calls homosexuality, lesbianism, transgenderism and bisexualism an abomination (the Greek word means “detestable”). This is a word for a very strong sin that God hates and forbids. God will not and does not create beings which are contrary to the His laws governing holiness and perfection. God loves you. God hates sin. He does not create you in sin. Our sinful nature which we have inherited comes from an initial act of disobedience. Don’t forget that any kind of sexual sin outside the institute and commitment of marriage as God laid out so clearly from the beginning is wrong whether it involves heterosexual fornication or whether it is homosexual.

The Father is loving and merciful, forgiving and patient, compassionate and faithful. He wishes that all should come to repentance. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:13 that “the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.” This is why He regards sexual sin which involves the body so particularly heinous. Romans 1:18-25 explains it this way, “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.” Please continue to read verses 26-27.

So you see, it IS wrong and shameful even though many no longer see it that way. You were NOT born that way. And you CAN be restored, as can we all no matter the state or intensity of our sin. As Jesus and John the Baptist both started their public ministries by declaring, “Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand.” You must heed this warning. Jesus paid the price your sins incurred. He wants to reconcile you to God so that you may be wiped clean and live in newness of life. John 3:16. God bless you.
