Homosexuality and the Bible: What is at stake in the current debate

Ann: Honor Thy Father?

It was a trip I had been dreading. Driving down Main Street, I knew I was getting close. Turning onto a quiet side street, I saw a squarish, dark-red building surrounded by a tall, barbed-wire fence. That’s when the reality of the situation hit—my father is a prisoner.

One of my pet peeves is when my husband and I are at home at the end of the day, catching up with each other, when the phone rings in the middle of what I am saying and he answers it. I wish he would set better boundaries and protect our time together from interruptions. What do you think?

Good communication is like the blood of relationships. Every facet of the living organism of your relationship hinges on good, healthy communication. If your blood circulation gets impeded or cut off to any part of your body, that part of your body begins to change color, tingle, or even go numb. If it continues, the part will begin to die, and eventually be forever harmed.

We’ve been married for about six years. I expected by now we would have worked out the kinds in our marriage. Yet, we are steadily growing apart. How can we get back on track?

Marriage is one of the most challenging relationships to manage, because it’s the closest relationship for most people. And, while opposites tend to attract before marriage, opposites tend to repel after marriage. To avoid drifting apart you must be purposeful each day about growing closer together through the power of God. To grow apart in marriage you don’t need to do anything. To grow closer, you must intentionally break the following patterns in your marriage relationship.

Why get married? Isn’t it better to just live together instead?

As people of faith living in a world without moral boundaries or constraints, it is essential to ask ourselves what norms we are living by and why. For Christians, the Bible is theoretically the guide used to determine what is appropriate or not. Yet, if we are honest with ourselves, we must admit that many are making decisions about important aspects of their lives based on what they see in the movies or read on social media. But the Bible shows us a better way.

What’s the big deal with homosexuality? The older people in my church often refer to homosexuality as a sin. Why would it be a sin if God made a person that way? Isn’t God and the Bible all about love? So why should it make a difference who a person loves? Does God really expect someone to live without love for their entire life if they were born homosexual? This doesn’t seem fair. What do you think?

Is being homosexual something that you are born with (genetic)?

This is a question to which science has not been able to provide a definitive answer. However, we have this inspired counsel from Ellen White: “Those who put their trust in Christ are not to be enslaved by any hereditary or cultivated habit or tendency. Instead of being held in bondage to the lower nature, they are to rule every appetite and passion. God has not left us to battle with evil in our own finite strength. Whatever may be our inherited or cultivated tendencies to wrong, we can overcome through the power that He is ready to impart.” (Ministry of Healing, pp. 174, 175).

If I love someone, what’s wrong with expressing that love through sexual intimacy, regardless of being married to them or not?

The Bible says decisions whether to have sex before marriage and when to have sex in marriage are not based upon how you feel; don’t make decisions based upon your emotions, and never underestimate the power of feelings. There are feelings that are misplaced and there are feelings that are misinterpreted. Misplaced feelings are giving God-ordained passions the wrong assignment.
