Romans 1:26-27

26 Amen. Therefore God gave them up to vile affections; for even their women changed the natural use to that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, 27 leaving the natural use of the women, burned in their lust toward each other, men with men working filthiness, and receiving in themselves the just recompence of their error.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10

9 Know ye not, that the unjust shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, 10 nor sodomites, Nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor revilers, nor the rapacious shall inherit the kingdom of God.

James 4:12

12 There is one lawgiver that is able to save and to destroy: Who art thou that judgest another?

1 Timothy 5:8

8 But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own family, he hath denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.

Matthew 7:1-29

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, 2 ye shall be judged, and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote in thy brother's eye, but observest not the beam in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote from thine eye, and behold a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother's eye. 6 Give not that which is holy to dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turning, rend you. 7 Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. 8 For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened. 9 What man is there of you, who if his son ask bread, will give him a stone? 10 And if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him? 12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in thro' the straight gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are that go in thro' it: 14 Because straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leadeth to life, and few there are that find it. 15 But beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruits ye shall know them. Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 So every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, and in thy name have cast out devils, and in thy name have done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I declare to them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these my sayings, and doth them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock: And the rain descended, 25 and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell not; for it was founded on a rock. 26 But every one that heareth these my sayings, and doth them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it. 28 And when Jesus had ended these sayings, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching, For he taught them as one having authority, 29 and not as the scribes.

Matthew 19:11-12

11 But he said to them, All men cannot receive this saying, but they to whom it is given. 12 For there are eunuchs, who were born so from their mother's womb, and there are eunuchs, who were made eunuchs by men; and there are eunuchs, who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Galatians 3:28

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 5:14

14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, in this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

1 John 4:20

20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar; for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God, whom he hath not seen?

Matthew 7:1

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge,

Romans 13:8-10

8 Owe no man any thing, but to love another; for he that loveth another, hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, thou shalt not covet, and if there be any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no evil to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Romans 1:32

32 Who knowing the righteous judgment of God, that they who do such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in those that do them.

Jude 1:7

7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities about them, which in the same manner with these gave themselves over to fornication, and went after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Romans 1:26-28

26 Amen. Therefore God gave them up to vile affections; for even their women changed the natural use to that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, 27 leaving the natural use of the women, burned in their lust toward each other, men with men working filthiness, and receiving in themselves the just recompence of their error. 28 And as they were not careful to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them up to an undiscerning mind, to do things not expedient, Filled with all injustice, maliciousness, covetousness, wickedness:

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Know ye not, that the unjust shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, 10 nor sodomites, Nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor revilers, nor the rapacious shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
