What Does God Say About Homosexual Acts?

I am writing from the Old Testament book of Leviticus, chapter 18.

I want to be clear, I am not trying to pick on any particular group of people, and since Leviticus 18 does not start with homosexual acts, I will not start there either.

The chapter begins with God’s proclamation, “I Am The LORD”, and the warning not to walk  in the ordinances of Egypt, from which He brought Israel out or of Canaan, the land to which He was leading them, but rather to walk in His statutes and to follow His judgments.

So, what are His statutes?  Well, for starters, we are not to uncover the nakedness of another person, if you want the complete list you can read verses 6-18.  But rather than looking for loopholes, I would say that the safest course is to just not do it!

Next, God warns against lying carnally with your neighbor’s wife.  This would include the sins both of fornication and adultery.  These are sins, and the one who take part in them defiles himself with them.

God also warns against sacrificing children to Molech, a truly horrid practice whereby a child was placed into the hands of a metal idol that was heated to the point where it was glowingGods-hand-of-judgment hot.

And then God says:

 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. (Leviticus 18:22, 23)

And the people are warned that not only do they defile themselves by such acts (Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. Leviticus 18:24) but the land itself is also defiled, therefore the LORD visits the punishment for their iniquity and the land vomits out its inhabitants.  

Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God. (Leviticus 18:30)
