We do not need Scriptures about homosexuality to know it is a sin

We just need Scripture verses on marriage. It is a bit of a misunderstanding of the nature of Scripture to only see homosexuality as a sin because of Romans 1 and 1 Corinthians 6, and parts of the OT Law. Genesis 2.24 describes what marriage is, and because of what marriage is, everything outside of God’s design is sin:

For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.

We know this is meant to be a paradigm for marriage, and not just a description of the first man and first woman’s marriage, because they had no father and mother. God’s design is that one man and one woman hold fast to each other in marriage, until God ends the marriage in death.

If that is God’s design, then all of the homosexuality controversy in the U.S. today is only one click over to the left from where the U.S. already was. Anyone who thinks sexual morality in America was ok before now, but now that certain laws are passing is in despair, just was not thinking rightly to begin with. Biblically speaking, the moral climate in America does not feel that different than it did five years ago.

Do not pray against homosexuality; pray against all forms of sexual immorality. And remember the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. And also remember that Jesus’ blood can cover every kind of sin that man commits.
