With all the recent battles over the issue of homosexual marriage, I thought that it would be good to share a presentation that I made a few years back entitled "What the Bible Really Says about Homosexuality." In this 45 minute lesson, I examine the biblical teaching regarding homosexuality in light of fifteen different verses which specifically address this topic. From those fifteen verses, I conclude that the Bible warns all governments that they have a responsibility to criminalize homosexual activity.
If you would like to read my responses to two challenges that I've received regarding the content of this lesson, be sure to read my articles "The Meaning of Arsenokoitai" and "The Apostle Paul and Homosexual Love." I've also written A "Brief" Response to Matthew Vines to answer some of the claims made in the book God and the Gay Christian.
Here is the outline for this lesson:

The Sermon was good, but not complete. What should matter most is to stress how God thinks about this Wicked Sin to the 2021 Christian via the New Testament. 2 Peter 2 is how God STILL VIEWS this very Wicked Sin by pointing us back to the "Old Testament" Sodom and Gomorrah. The Same comparison can be made in Jude 1:7 and onward. This is what the Christian should be keeping in mind when the idea of "acceptance" is discussed. THIS is what GOD still thinks about this very Filthy Sin in the "New Testament." Sodom and Gomorrah! God doesn't Change or Evolve to do any kind of "rethinking." MAN does that - and it's a SIN to "second guess" or "stand in judgment" of God Almighty.
