The Two Spectrums To The Biblical Response to Homosexuality

It seems like everywhere I turn these day I am seeing stories about A&E’s response to suspending the guy from Duck Dynasty about his comments about homosexuality.  Apparently the breaking point for A&E was how he compared homosexuality to beastiality.  It seems like often when Christians speak out against homosexuality that go for the shock & awe treatment and make big bold statements like that.

The problem with shock & awe statements is that they can give an attitude of self-righteousness even if that is not the intent.  What is often missing from the conversation is the fact that homosexuality is just as sinful as lustful thoughts and premarital sex.

The Pharisee and the Tax Collector

9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 10 “Two menwent up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ – Luke 18:9-13

Homosexuality does not hold the market on sexual sin.  All sexual sin is equally heinous before God.
