Does The Bible Condemn Homosexuality?

There are those who say that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality. They say that verses are cited out of context and really don't condemn the loving, honest relationship between two people of the same sex. But is that true? Are Christians completely misrepresenting the Bible as the homosexuals say? Of course not. The truth is that the world wants to change God's words to suit its sinful desires and the fact is that the Bible condemns homosexuality as a sin. Let's look at what it says.
Lev. 18:22 (King James Version), "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: IT IS ABOMINATION."

Lev. 20:13 (King James Version), "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, BOTH OF THEM HAVE COMMITTED AN ABOMINATION: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

1 Cor. 6:9-10 (King James Version), "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."

Rom. 1:26-27 (King James Version), "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."

Homosexuality is not only condemned in the Bible, but it also goes against the created order of God who made Adam, a man, and Eve, a woman -- not two men, not two women -- to carry out his command to fill and subdue the earth (Gen. 1:28). Homosexuality cannot fulfil that command. It is, therefore, an opposition to God's stated desire.
