Homo sex dating
By Sam Allberry It is a surprise to many people to discover that there are only a handful of passages in the Bible that directly mention homosexuality.Yet despite its infrequent mention, where the subject does come up, the Bible has some very important things to say about it.We need to understand them if we’re to avoid the twin mistakes of homophobia and thinking God is indifferent about how we use our sexuality.The first two passages that directly mention homosexuality come from the Old Testament, the other three are from the New Testament.
Although the Hebrew word for “know” () can just mean to “get to know” someone (rather than to “know” them sexually), it is clear from the crowd’s aggression (and Lot’s dreadful attempt at offering them his daughters as an alternative) that they are looking for much more than social acquaintance.
Hence what happens next: the angels warn Lot that judgment is imminent (v.13).
In the New Testament, Jude adds an important insight: ..as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
(Jude 7) What happened at Sodom is clearly meant to be something of a cautionary tale.
Jude makes it clear that their ungodliness involved sexual immorality.
