The Bible & Gay Marriage

What does the Bible say about same sex marriage? Consider the following: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22) And again, “For this cause God gave them up to vile affections: for even their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature: and also the men, leaving the natural us 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 is meet.” (Romans 1:26-27) See also 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 1 Timothy 1:8-11.


These passages are all crystal clear. So why is it that so many of our religious leaders today say differently? Why is it that for centuries these passages were clearly understood by Bible readers but now are discarded? Well, the Bible answers that also. It’s the culture. Paul put it this way: “The god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not.” (2 Corinthians 4:4) And again, “The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lust shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)


People, even religious leaders, allow the modern culture to blind their eyes to the obvious truth.
