There are too many passages to

list

It is a mistake to think that there is little about homosexual practice in the Bible. It is not just the passages that speak directly about homosexual practice. Passages that deal with the following subjects are all connected to this issue: Sexual morality Marriage Honouring God (worship, pleasing God, obedience, etc) Righteousness Sin (temptation, conviction, submitting to or resisting temptation etc) Judgement (Heaven and hell) Jesus the Saviour Faith Repentance Salvation, forgiveness, mercy, grace Transformation (being, and living as, new people in Christ; dying to sin) The Holy Spirit’s sanctifying work Healing The correct use of the scriptures and submission to the Word of God. False teaching and false teachers The Kingdom of God Hope And there are probably many more related topics. There are, of course, many passages that speak about related topics such as: Love (including love for enemies) Care for the marginalised Compassion Forgiveness Truth Blessing those who persecute us Evangelism and mission Relationships within the church Church discipline Many of these will be addressed in the sections about the gospel and homosexuals, and how the church should relate to homosexuals. In the meantime, let us consider a handful of particularly relevant passages: Gods’ design at creation (and Jesus’ and Paul’s confirmation of that) Porneia passages Related pages
