Is homosexuality acceptable to God?

Ron Rhodes

By no means. The Bible emphatically states that “neither fornicators ... nor homosexuals ... will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9 NKJV). The Scriptures repeatedly and consistently condemn homosexual practices (see Leviticus 18:22 and Romans 1:26). God loves all persons, including homosexuals, but He hates homosexuality. The Bible condemns all types of fornication—which would therefore include homosexuality (Matthew 15:19; Mark 7:21; Acts 15:20,29; Galatians 5:19-21; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; Hebrews 13:4).
