Is Same-Sex Attraction a Sin?

Reader we learn something new everyday.  I will not lie I just discovered this a couple of months ago that there's a difference between homosexuality and same-sex attraction, just like there's a difference between sin and temptation. I didn't realize the term "same-sex attraction" even existed until then. I had not heard of the phrase "same sex attractions" (SSA) until I started doing research for something else. I have always known and do believe there's a big difference between temptation and sin. Our Lord and Saviour was tempted but nowhere in scripture does it say He sin:

Jesus was without sin. "And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin" (I John 3:5). Jesus was tempted. "For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:15). Therefore, being tempted is not sinful.
The world, even some Christians seem to think that because one is attracted to the same sex that they cannot be following Christ, in fact some churches teach this. While on the other hand some churches teach that having same-sex attraction in itself is not a sin against God but instead just misplaced desires.

What do you think? Does ANYONE believe that same-sex attraction is a sin?

  1. Miss Ann,

    "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." Matthew 5:27-28

    "But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren." James 1:14-16

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

    1. Dr. Gregg, how's it an abomination if no sexual contact has taken place? At this point it's only an a attraction.

  3. Yes Its An Abomination In The Eyesight Of The Almighty God. God made Male and Feamale. No in between. He made Adam and Eve not Eve and Yvette. And not Ray and Day. The body parts of same sex partners don't fit properly. It's UnGodly, Unholy,Unnatural Affection. It's disgusting. And anyone that's preaching or teaching that's its natural and that's it is OK. They are wrong and are leading folks toward HELL. They are teaching a false religion. That's goes against everything that the word of GOD the BIBLE states. And stands for. If they want deliverances from that Unholy UnGodly Spirit they could ask GoD to deliver them from it. The Blood of Jesus it still works. Yes it does. They needs to repent while they still have time.

  4. In HELL they will lift there eyes. Yes its an abomination in the eyesight of GOD. God made Male and Female. No in between. He made Adam and Eve not Eve and Yvette. The body parts don't even fit right between two people's of the same sex. Folks always trying to find a way to SIN and think that's its OK with GOD but it's not. Burn baby Burn not a Disco Inferno either. But HE HELL HELL YOU WILL LIFT YOUR EYES.

    1. Same sex attraction isn't a sin, just like opposite attraction isn't. It's acting out fornicating that's the sin.

  6. Scientist, atheists, philosophers will use this to validate homosexuality and many church people will give in to this demonic deception. This is some foolishness. Uh...But I'll say this, ain't nothing more beautiful than God's creation of the woman...haha.. I'm sorry ya'll, just saying....

  7. It is both, misplaced desires and sin. The elephant in the room that needs to be addressed is hypocrisy that treat homosexuals as greater sinners then those that lie, steal, gossip, commit adultery, etc. Those who are trapped under the thumb of homosexual living needs our same love and prayers as those who commit any sin. If we could pray for the pastor that commit adultery, fornication, have children out of wedlock, divorces his wife and marries another women. Surely we can pray for LBGT.

    The church must start treating all sin the same, the last time I checked the Scriptures, the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life.

  8. I'm confused, take away the homosexuality; if I desire somebody that is not my husband, but I don't pursue him in anyway. It is a desire that is not acted upon; I thought that was temptation? Am I missing something??

    3. Hello everyone. To Annisha, Drive By, Marshall K Johnson, and Ms. Ann. Eph 4:27 Neither give place to the devil. With the climate of where we are now, with Hollywood thinking it's cute for us to give the very hint of an individual being attracted to one's same-sex, playing around with the very idea, the doorway will give way and open up to this as a positive thing. That's exactly what's going on now. So Annisha, when you say, "take away the homosexuality," that's like cranking a car up with no gas, they both go together. So again, when that small slightest hint of this same-sex attraction thing that's happening right now is talked about, in today's society, it's look upon as, "you're open minded and you're not a closed minded individual." Especially if we say we're Christians in this day and age, the last thing we even need to entertain is saying something crazy like, "uh, is it a sin to be attracted to the same-sex?" smh. That's the furthest thing that needs to be on our minds and if that spirit feels as if it's creeping up upon you as a Christian, serious fasting and praying is definitely in need. Like I said, this spirit is stronger now than it's ever been before. It's in commercials now. There's one Samsung commercial that was show (of all time during an NFL game) of a group of men sitting around a sofa with the WOMEN in the background. There's these very small instances of this same-sex attraction thing that satan is using to desensitize our minds and look at it as normal when it's all said and done. With the Superbowl right around the corner, I can't image what commercials they're going to try and slip in. They could careless whether it's children watching or a church group because these are the very groups they want to destroy, Period. And don't get me started with Lady Gaga being the entertainment piece they're going to use, I may just cut it off and wait for the game because that's all I concerned about anyway. Again, here in this day and age we must walk in divine wisdom because if we don't, the very subject matter we're discussing in this posting will turn your minds in not being able to recognize the deception of this.

    4. Sorry Marshall, you are correct. Sorry about that. When you said it's a sin, I 100% agree.

  9. Everbody who lives by that conviction/judgment is going to hell by that belief/logic. Sin, if it's in the heart is sin. Regardless of what the sin may be. Dont limit it to sexual sins. Iniquity abounds in the heart of man. Let God judge the very intent of the heart. Some things God allows, not to send people to hell, but to strengthen the body of Christ. Paul had a thorrn in his side. It was never said specifically what it was or if it ever went away. Guess hes going to hell.

    I feel sorry for the church today. Stuck in the past preaching death when Christ already gave life. The word is a living word. It grows as people grow in the relationship with God.

    Just pray and walk upright. Let your light shine so that people see it and glorify God. Leave people alone.
