"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman,
both of them have committed an abomination ..."

I. Although homosexuality has in these last days become more and more acceptable to society, it is nonetheless evil and wicked in the sight of God.
II. When God created man and woman He intended that there remain a respect within His people for the distinction He had made between the two sexes.
A. Homosexuality became widely practiced in Old Testament times.
B. It was still common during the time of the first century church.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
C. Scripture even indicates that, in the end times, the homosexual way of life will become openly practiced and generally accepted by society as a whole.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
III. How serious an offense is it?
A. Under the Law, the act was considered "worthy of death."
B. Scripture clearly says those guilty of this transgression are unfit to inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9
IV. It is an abomination to God.
A. The sin is self-defiling.
Leviticus 18:22, 24
B. It is unnatural (Romans 1:27, 31; 2 Timothy 3:3), and to accept or encourage this way of life is "contrary to sound doctrine" (1 Timothy 1:10).
C. God abhors it!
Leviticus 20:13, 23
D. Believers are expected to "put aside" such evil practices of their former way of life.
1 Corinthians 6:9, 11
E. Because they refused to abandon their wicked ways "God gave them up." (They became reprobate.)
Romans 1:24, 26-32
V. It is possible to be set free from the bondage of this offense. The sin is not unforgivable.
1 Corinthians 6:11, 9-10
