Interpreting Deuteronomy 23:17-

18

Objection: This passage doesn’t refer to homosexuality

The argument is that it is difficult to know exactly what the phrases used here refer to. The fact that the NIV translates them as male and female prostitutes shows that they may have nothing to do with same-sex relationships. Response On the other hand, they might and there is good reason to believe they do. (See above.) Even so, this passage reinforces that sexual immorality is disgusting to God and is to have no place amongst the people of God. Related pages Read the passage
