Answering Pro-Gay Theology
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Argument: “The original words in this Scripture passage refers to other forms of immorality; such as male prostitution, not to loving, permanent gay relationships.”
Response: In this passage Paul is broadly condemning all homosexual acts, not just prostitution. If Paul was condemning only one kind of homosexual activity here, and by implication allowing others, he surely would have been more explicit.
The Bible never speaks positively about homosexuality or any other sexual practices outside a lifelong heterosexual monogamous commitment. Difficult as this standard is to obey, it is the calling of Christ for all His followers, including those with same-sex attractions and desires.
