Bible verses about "homosexuals" | WNT

John 8:7-11

7 When however they persisted with their question, He raised His head and said to them, "Let the sinless man among you be the first to throw a stone at her." 8 Then He leant forward again, and again began to write on the ground. 9 They listened to Him, and then, beginning with the eldest, took their departure, one by one, till all were gone. And Jesus was left behind alone--and the woman in the centre of the court. 10 Then, raising His head, Jesus said to her, "Where are they? Has no one condemned you?" 11 "No one, Sir," she replied. "And *I* do not condemn you either," said Jesus; "go, and from this time do not sin any more."

Matthew 22:39

39 And the second is similar to it: 'THOU SHALT LOVE THY FELLOW MAN AS MUCH AS THYSELF.'

Galatians 5:16-25

16 This then is what I mean. Let your lives be guided by the Spirit, and then you will certainly not indulge the cravings of your lower natures. 17 For the cravings of the lower nature are opposed to those of the Spirit, and the cravings of the Spirit are opposed to those of the lower nature; because these are antagonistic to each other, so that you cannot do everything to which you are inclined. 18 But if the Spirit is leading you, you are not subject to Law. 19 Now you know full well the doings of our lower natures. Fornication, impurity, indecency, idol-worship, sorcery; 20 enmity, strife, jealousy, outbursts of passion, intrigues, dissensions, factions, envyings; 21 hard drinking, riotous feasting, and the like. And as to these I forewarn you, as I have already forewarned you, that those who are guilty of such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God. 22 The Spirit, on the other hand, brings a harvest of love, joy, peace; patience towards others, kindness, benevolence; 23 good faith, meekness, self-restraint. 24 Against such things as these there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their lower nature with its passions and appetites. 25 If we are living by the Spirit's power, let our conduct also be governed by the Spirit's power.

Matthew 19:11-12

11 "It is not every man," He replied, "who can receive this teaching, but only those on whom the grace has been bestowed. 12 There are men who from their birth have been disabled from marriage, others who have been so disabled by men, and others who have disabled themselves for the sake of the Kingdom of the Heavens. He who is able to receive this, let him receive it."

Romans 13:8-10

8 Owe nothing to any one except mutual love; for he who loves his fellow man has satisfied the demands of Law. 9 For the precepts, "THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY," "THOU SHALT DO NO MURDER," "THOU SHALT NOT STEAL," "THOU SHALT NOT COVET," and all other precepts, are summed up in this one command, "THOU SHALT LOVE THY FELLOW MAN AS MUCH AS THOU LOVEST THYSELF." 10 Love avoids doing any wrong to one's fellow man, and is therefore complete obedience to Law.

Galatians 5:14

14 For the entire Law has been obeyed when you have kept the single precept, which says, "YOU ARE TO LOVE YOUR FELLOW MAN EQUALLY WITH YOURSELF."

Matthew 7:12

12 Everything, therefore, be it what it may, that you would have men do to you, do you also the same to them; for in this the Law and the Prophets are summed up.

Mark 7:20-23

20 "What comes out of a man," He added, "that it is which makes him unclean. 21 For from within, out of men's hearts, their evil purposes proceed--fornication, theft, murder, adultery, 22 covetousness, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, reviling, pride, reckless folly: 23 all these wicked things come out from within and make a man unclean."

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Do you not know that unrighteous men will not inherit God's Kingdom? Cherish no delusion here. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor any who are guilty of unnatural crime, 10 nor theives, nor avaricious people, nor any who are addicted to hard drinking, to abusive language or to greed of gain, will inherit God's Kingdom. 11 And all this describes what some of you were. But now you have had every stain washed off: now you have been set apart as holy: now you have been pronounced free from guilt; in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and through the Spirit of our God.

Romans 1:23-28

23 and, instead of worshipping the imperishable God, they worshipped images resembling perishable man or resembling birds or beasts or reptiles. 24 For this reason, in accordance with their own depraved cravings, God gave them up to uncleanness, allowing them to dishonour their bodies among themselves with impurity. 25 For they had bartered the reality of God for what is unreal, and had offered divine honours and religious service to created things, rather than to the Creator--He who is for ever blessed. Amen. 26 This then is the reason why God gave them up to vile passions. For not only did the women among them exchange the natural use of their bodies for one which is contrary to nature, but the men also, 27 in just the same way--neglecting that for which nature intends women--burned with passion towards one another, men practising shameful vice with men, and receiving in their own selves the reward which necessarily followed their misconduct. 28 And just as they had refused to continue to have a full knowledge of God, so it was to utterly worthless minds that God gave them up, for them to do things which should not be done.
