The temptation to engage in homosexual behavior is very real to many. Those who struggle with homosexual attraction often report suffering through years of wishing things were different. People may not always be able to control how or what they feel, but they can control what they do with those feelings ([url=https://biblia.com/bible/esv/1 Pet 1.5%E2%80%938]1 Peter 1:5–8[/url]). We all have the responsibility to resist temptation ([url=https://biblia.com/bible/esv/Eph 6.13]Ephesians 6:13[/url]). We must all be transformed by the renewing of our minds ([url=https://biblia.com/bible/esv/Rom 12.2]Romans 12:2[/url]). We must all “walk by the Spirit” so as not to “gratify the desires of the flesh” ([url=https://biblia.com/bible/esv/Gal 5.16]Galatians 5:16[/url]).
Finally, the Bible does not describe homosexuality as a “greater” sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God. Without Christ, we are lost, whatever type of sin has entangled us. According to the Bible, God’s forgiveness is available to the homosexual just as it is to the adulterer, idol worshipper, murderer, and thief. God promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation ([url=https://biblia.com/bible/esv/1 Cor 6.11]1 Corinthians 6:11[/url]; [url=https://biblia.com/bible/esv/2 Cor 5.17]2 Corinthians 5:17[/url]; [url=https://biblia.com/bible/esv/Phil 4.13]Philippians 4:13[/url]).
Does the Bible approve of some homosexual relationships?
Is homosexuality a sin? Is there hope for forgiveness?
There absolutely is hope for homosexuals. God can cleanse and purify all persons from sin. As many scriptures as there are that address sin, there are more that speak of forgiveness and redemption. He is able to give deliverance to any who sincerely desire true freedom and salvation. Such is demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 6:11 (KJV): "And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." This verse says “some of you were,” meaning they became past acts.
We are offered the empowering Spirit of God to help us turn from our sins. Coming out of drug addiction, homosexuality, pornography, or other sin isn't always easy but God will provide the way. Christians are to "love" into the kingdom, those who desire repentance and to live by His natural plan.
Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again the third day. He desires that we repent and be forgiven of our sins by coming into a personal relationship with Him.
