What Does The Bible Say About Homosexuality?

One is correct when one says, "no one but God has the right" to judge someone's lifestyle. However, in the case of homosexuality, God has already expressed what His judgment is of this lifestyle. Leviticus 18:22 declares, "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination." So when Christians say, "Homosexuality is a sin," we are not judging other's lifestyles; we are proclaiming what God's judgment of this lifestyle already is! And when the Bible speaks clearly on a topic, not only is it appropriate for Christians to proclaim this, but it is our duty to do so (Ezekiel 3:18; Acts 20:26,27).
