Romans 1:26-27

26 Therefore God gave them up to infamous passions: for even their women changed the natural use into that which is unnatural, 27 and the men likewise, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust to one another, men with men committing shame, and receiving in themselves the recompence of their error which they deserved.

Romans 1:1-32

1 Paul a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, 2 separated unto the gospel of God, (which He had promised before by his prophets in the holy scriptures) concerning his Son, 3 who was of the seed of David according to the flesh, 4 but powerfully declared to be the Son of God, according to the spirit of holiness, by his resurrection from the dead, even Jesus Christ our Lord; 5 by whom we have received grace and apostleship to preach the obedience of faith for his name's sake, to all nations; 6 among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ; 7 to all that are in Rome beloved of God, called and holy: grace be to you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 8 And first I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is celebrated through the whole world: 9 for God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, how incessantly I make mention of you always in my prayers, 10 intreating if I may now at length have a prosperous journey by the will of God, to come unto you. 11 For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, that you may be established: 12 that is to say, that being among you we may be comforted together by the faith of each, both yours and mine. 13 And I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that I often purposed to come unto you, (but have been hindered hitherto) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among the other Gentiles. 14 For I am a debtor both to Greeks and barbarians, both to the learned and the unlearned: 15 therefore am I ready, as much as in me lies, to preach the gospel to you also that are at Rome. 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, both Jew and Greek: 17 for the righteousness of God is therein revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith." 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who withhold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 for what is to be known of God is manifest among them, for God hath manifested it to them. 20 Inasmuch as from the first creation of the world, the invisible things of Him, even his eternal power and Godhead, are, if attended to, clearly seen in his works: 21 so that they are inexcusable; because having thus known God they glorified Him not as God, neither were they thankful; but were infatuated by their own reasonings, and their heart being void of understanding was darkened. 22 Pretending to be wise they Became fools: 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God for an image like to corruptible man, and birds, and beasts, and reptiles. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to impurity, in the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves; 25 who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature instead of the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 Therefore God gave them up to infamous passions: for even their women changed the natural use into that which is unnatural, 27 and the men likewise, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust to one another, men with men committing shame, and receiving in themselves the recompence of their error which they deserved. 28 And as they were not careful to acknowledge God, God gave them up to an undiscerning mind to do things that were not fit to be done: 29 being filled with all injustice, lewdness, wickedness, covetousness, malignity; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and every evil habit; whisperers, 30 slanderers, haters of God, injurious, haughty, proud, inventers of mischief, undutiful to parents, void of understanding, 31 covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, and unmerciful: 32 who though they knew the just judgement of God, (that they who commit such practises are worthy of death) yet not only do these very things, but also countenance and encourage others in the practice of them.

Hebrews 13:4

4 Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed is not defiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10

9 What! 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, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor rapacious persons, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 6:1-20

1 Dare any of you, having a matter of complaint against another, try it before the unjust, and not before the saints? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? And if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy of judging the smallest controversies? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? what! and not worthy of judging the affairs of this life? 4 Therefore if ye have controversies about the things of this life, do ye set them to judge, who are despised by the church? 5 I speak it to your shame. What! is there not one wise man among you, that is able to judge between his bretheren? 6 But one brother goeth to law with another, and this before infidels. 7 Now there is certainly a fault among you, that ye have law-suits with one another: why do ye not rather endure wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? 8 But ye do wrong and defraud, and that even your brethren. 9 What! 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, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor rapacious persons, 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. 12 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be under the power of any: 13 meats are for the belly, and the belly for meats, but God will destroy both it and them. But the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And as God hath raised up the Lord, so will He raise up us by his power. 15 Know ye not that your bodies are members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them members of an harlot? 16 God forbid! What! know ye not that he who is joined to an harlot is one body with her? for these two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 And he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee from whoredom. Every other sin, that a man committeth, is without the body; but he, that committeth whoredom, sinneth against his own body. 19 What! know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which ye have from God? 20 and ye are not your own, for ye are bought with a price. Glorify God therefore in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

1 Timothy 1:10

10 parricides, murderers, whoremongers, sodomites, kidnappers, liars, false-swearers, and if there be any thing else contrary to that sound doctrine,

1 Corinthians 6:9

9 What! 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, nor sodomites,
