CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVES ON SAME SEX MARRIAGE by Pastor Femi Okanlawon
Bible reference – 1 Corinthians 6:9 – 10 (NLT)
9. Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, 10. or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
Romans 1:26 – 27
26. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
Hebrew 4:15 – 16
15. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same TESTINGS we do, yet he did not sin. 16. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
