Study the following table:

[6] Sex with close relative                                 [10] Sex with your neighbour’s wife
[7] Sex with your mother                                   [11] Sex with your father’s wife
[8] Sex with your father’s wife                           [12] Sex with your daughter-in-law
[9] Sex with your sister                                      [13] Sex with a man

It is clear from the above table that homosex is a sexual sin.  Other sexual sins are incest, adultery and bestiality.  A further sexual sin mentioned in the Bible is prostitution.  Pro-homosexual proponents like to utilise slavery, women in church ministry, divorce/remarriage, and long hair for men as analogies as to why homosex should be tolerated in the church community.  Yet none of these even hints in the direction of being sexual in content.

Surely the best analogies for comparison must at least be sexual by their very nature and comparable to the salient features of the biblical view of same-sex intercourse:

  • Sexual behaviour
  • Proscribed in both Old and New Testaments
  • Pervasively within the Testaments
  • Absolutely, severely and consistently judged as sin

Obviously none of the normal analogies used in the debate (slavery, women in ministry, long hair, etc) qualifies when the above is considered.  From the table above one can logically deduce that comparable analogies, being sexual in nature, should be incest, bestiality, adultery and prostitution.

A further point in case is that none of the normal analogies used in the debate (slavery, women in ministry, long hair, etc) is judged to be a sin that would exclude the practitioner thereof from the kingdom of God and thus from the community of the saints (church).  Paul is adamant that those who partake in and practice homosex, incest, prostitution and adultery will not see God, but experience His wrath and exclusion from His kingdom. (Gal. 5:19-21; Col. 3:5-7; om. 1:28-32; 1 Cor. 5:1-5; 6:9-11)
