Practicing homosexuality is forbidden in the Bible. (Leviticus 20:13)  Our hearts go out to those struggling with these feelings. Those dear ones will need to lead a celibate life. (Please recognize: many heterosexuals are also celibate. Celibacy is practiced for a variety of different reasons.)​

However, all of us are sinners and Jesus died for every single man, woman, and child. When we approach God through the merit of Jesus' blood, His sacrifice can cover our sins. "Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one, the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life," Romans 5:18.

Does this mean we do not need to fight against sin? No. We need to stop our sinful behaviors and work on our sinful thoughts for the rest of our lives. ​

"Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not! Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you. Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living…And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in death." Romans 6:15-18, 21(NLT).​

Therefore, we all need to work to obey God, daily. "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, 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," 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 (NLT).
