What Does The Bible Say About Homosexuality?

In Podcasts
Scripture: Romans 1:24-27
Topics: Culture & Politics, Doctrine of Apologetics, Doctrine of Common Grace, Doctrine of Man, Doctrine of Sin, Contributor: Joel Webbon

Some Evangelical Christians might say that due to the heinous sins of abortion, divorce-on-demand, and sodomy, America is on the brink of receiving God’s judgment. However, according to Romans 1:24-28, America is most certainly already under God’s judgment. When a society chooses to joyfully engage in rank sexual perversion and mass murder, the people of God can be sure that this society has already been handed over to “impurity,” “degrading passions,” and “a depraved mind.” Romans 1:24-28 is clear, when a society willfully chooses to reject God’s truth in exchange for the lie, as well as reject God’s glory in exchange for the glory of the creature, God promises to hand them over to their sins and the horrible consequences which will inevitably follow.

It is of the utmost importance that we remind ourselves that although we should resist the temptation of politicizing everything, everything is still being politicized by someone. Suppose we believe that policies (including what kind of bans should be enforced during a pandemic) flow downstream from morality and that morality flows downstream from theology. If this is the case, Christians …
