Ask Kevin: What about Scholars Who Deny that the Bible Condemns Homosexual Practice?

A biblical view of homosexuality

What do you recommend? The first step in delegitimizing what the Bible says about homosexuality is to suggest that the Bible hardly says anything about homosexuality. As I mentioned in the introduction, in one sense this is true. The Bible is a big book, and the rightness or wrongness of homosexual practice is not at the center of it. We looked at most of them in part 1 of this book.

The Bible defines marriage in Genesis as a union between one man and one woman. Jesus Christ upholds this definition of marriage in Matthew , as does the Apostle Paul in Ephesians Further to this, same-sex practice is specifically highlighted as sinful a number of times in Scripture. Further references are made in the New Testament. For example, in Romans , amid echoes to the Genesis creation account, both male and female same-sex practice are treated as sinful. Further references to the sinfulness of same-sex practice can be seen in 1 Corinthians and 1 Timothy The Scriptures are, therefore, consistent in their prohibition of same-sex sexual activity, across different periods of salvation history and within different cultural settings.
