We gays have been so abused by the masses using Scripture against us, that many of us are afraid of God’s Holy Word. The Bible is NOT our accuser. It is people who, in the spirit of wanting to obey God, have erroneously persecuted us. Let us make that distinction first, and then delve headlong into studying the Bible with all integrity and passion to find its TRUTH.

I must preface this Bible Look-Up with some critical information about the things that you may find using this search tool.

It may appear that God condemns homosexuals. When you read something that conveys this impression, jump right to the Christianity & Homosexuality pages or the page on the Clobber Verses for explanations of how these verses have been misinterpreted.

Be very clear that God DOES condemn homosexual (AND heterosexual) sex when it involves ritual impurity (idolatry), power or rape. However, the concept of orientation was only recognized about a hundred years ago, so the authors of Scripture could not have been referring to sex between people in a loving, monogamous relationship.
