When confronting, accusing, and attempting to correct contemporary homosexuals - be they homoeffeminate or homosodomites or both - the use of The Big Three anti-homosexual Scripture verses is typically mis-explained away then both casually and mindlessly dismissed by the adversarially-impenitent homoperverts who clearly refuse to comply and accommodate to the obvious and plain intentions of generally-accepted translation of those verses used against them.
The Bible verses referred to - each word of which can be looked up in a typical Webster's dictionary for reasonable and common-sense definition - are the following:
Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural,
Romans 1:27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
First Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the non-righteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [Gr. malakoi], nor sodomites [Gr. arsenokoitai],
10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.
Quoting the aforementioned anti-homosexual and anti-homosexuality verses to homosexuals espousing effeminate or sodomite or or a combination of both types of sinfulness will typically incur a negative retort of something like: "The meanings of those passages are considered by many to be difficult and obscure, and probably relate to ancient idolatry and heathen ceremonial ritualistic customs.
An accurate dictionary definition of effeminate is: willfully exhibiting characteristics of the opposite gender for erotic purposes....and an accurate definition of sodomite is: non-heterosexually-human erotic connections with animate or inanimate objects (which also includes self-sodomizing masturbation, bestiality, same-gender genital insertions or other diverse same-gender bodily connections....but not heterosexual fellatio, regardless of participant ages involved).
Elaborating further on Leviticus 20:13, some pro-homopervert pseudo-theologians will proceed to impose a warped and twisted variety of diversionary mis-associations to adiaphoric-and-outmoded ceremonial rituals of pagan male temple prostitution.
Wrangling about the exact and best meaning of the word "unnatural" in Romans 1:26-27 will also be committed (and not "performed") by froward-homo mis-expositors.
Second Peter 3:14 Therefore, beloved, since you wait for these, be zealous to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.
15 And consider the forbearance of our Lord as salvation. So also our beloved brother Paul wrote to you in accord with wisdom given him,
16 speaking of this as he does in all his letters. There are some things in them hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other scriptures.
17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, beware lest you be carried away with the error of lawless humans and lose your own stability.
18 But grow in the grace and [anti-homogay] knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
Exclusionary misapplication is involved when they irrationalize the words of First Corinthians 6:9-10 as they infer and insinuate that the words "might" refer to mere young call-boy paederism related to ritual paganism of the long-gone culture against which that particular Bible verse applied to previously. Also, such mis-expositors take advantage of the differing mis-translations of First Corinthians 6:9-10 of various and thus rather-discrepant-against-each-other English renditions found in the KJV, RSV, NIV, and so on.
Second Corinthians 4:2 We have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways; we refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
First Thessalonians 2:13 And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of humans but as what it really is: the word of God, which is at work in you believers.
Second Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Second Peter 1:20 First of all you must understand this, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one's own origin,
21 because no prophecy ever came by the concoction of humans, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
Second Peter 3:3 First of all you must understand this, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own passions....
The anti-homosexual and anti-homosexuality missionary is tempted to wonder, therefore, whether quoting any one or all of The Big Three verses cited above does any good at all in trying to rightly reform homosexuals with the honorable intention of bring them to repentance and conversion.
The answer is: Yes!
Remember, the Bible itself of itself states:
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
It does not instead state:
"In the beginning were The Interpretations....," "In the beginning were The Ritualistic-Custom Cultures of the time....," "In the beginning was the Context (or Contexts)....," "In the beginning were The Explanations....," "In the beginning were The Re-Editions of Faulty Bible Translations...," or "In the beginning were The Irrationalizations...."
Ecclesiastes 7:29 Hey, this alone I found, that God made man upright, but they have sought out many devices.
Bypassing their off-on-a-tangent diversionary misassociations and exclusionary misapplications rhetoric, just continuing to quote the Bible verses verbatim to them using properly-translated correct semantics is quite sufficient and adequate, because it is the Word of God which abides forever -- not the selectively-aberrant additional philosophical or metaphysical meanderings of deceitfully-deviate homo-theologians.
Beyond that, words alone will be supplemented by actual physical actions of coincidental circumstances in their environment, whenever and wherever and however. Added to that, Acts of God will supplement the descriptive words of the Bible verses whether for correction and/or punishment of sundry types and severities, because as it states in Holy Writ:
Proverbs 29:19 By mere words a servant is not disciplined, for though he understands, he will not give heed.
Understandable antagonism and retaliation from authentic Christians of necessity is sooner-or-later expressed in human-statutes legal prohibitions and court adjudications enforced by government agents and officials.
Way beyond that, The LORD has a thousand and one innovatively-creative ways to inflict righteous vengeance on relentlessly-impenitent homo-theologians and their cohorts, and Judeo-Christianity has lasted for millennia and continues to thrive in spite of apostate homo-depot heretics and their ilk who have done their damndest to despise and unravel it.
Leviticus 26:16 I will do this to you: I will appoint over you sudden terror, consumption, and fever that waste the eyes and cause life to pine away. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it;
39 And those of you that are left shall pine away in your enemies' lands because of their iniquity; and also because of the iniquities of their fathers they shall pine away like them.
Jeremiah 28:15 And Jeremiah the prophet said to the prophet Hananiah, "Listen, Hananiah, the LORD has not sent you, and you have made this people trust in a lie.
16 Therefore thus says the LORD: 'Hey, I will remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you shall die, because you have uttered rebellion against the LORD.'"
17 In that same year, in the seventh month, the prophet Hananiah died.
Acts 5:3 But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back part of the proceeds of the land?
4 While it remained non-sold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your appropriation? How is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God."
5 When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and died. And great fear came upon all who heard of it.
First Corinthians 4:19 But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power.
20 For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.
21 What do you wish? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?
Second Corinthians 13:10 I write this while I am away from you, in order that when I come I may not have to be severe in my use of the authority which the Lord has given me for building up and not for tearing down.
As the reader can quickly perceive, there is no church-fellowship welcoming for homosexuals who come with their hardened-mindset homo-deviancy, and/or persist in their perverted misorientation and misbehavior.....but instead hostile and hateful wrath -- not only from genuine orthodox Christians, but even and much more from the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who to-be-respected-and-not-reviled anti-homosexual and anti-homosexuality bonafide believers are totally submitted to as Redeemer and Master.
II John 1:6 And this is love, that we follow His [anti-homosexuality/heterosexuality-only] commandments [not the perverted-lie-and-heretic-insinuation commandments of (apostate) homogay-supporting pseudo-"reverend" false-prophet "clergy" and their patsies!]; this is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you follow love [ for heterosexual saints who deserve love - not for disgusting and repulsive purveyors of homosexual filth who in effect virulently hate God and maliciously despise His religious-right fundamentalist anti-homosexuals].
7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world....such a one is a deceiver and an antichrist.
8 Look to yourselves, that you may not lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward.
9 Any one who goes ahead and does not stay in the [anti-homosexuality/heterosexuality-only] doctrine of Christ does not have God; he who stays in the [anti-homosexuality/heterosexuality-only] doctrine has both the Father and the Son.
10 If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into the house or give him any greeting;
11 for [he] who greets [him] shares his wicked work.
An appropriate summary of the above could include:
Job 34:4 Let us choose what is right; let us determine among ourselves what is good.
5 For Job has said, 'I am innocent, and God has taken away my right;
6 in spite of my right I am counted a liar; my wound is incurable, though I am without transgression.'
7 What man is like Job, who drinks up scoffing like water,
8 who goes in company with evildoers and walks with wicked men?
9 For he has said, 'It profits a man nothing that he should take delight in God.'
10 Therefore, hear me, you men of understanding, far be it from God that He should do wickedness, and from the Almighty that He should do wrong.
11 For according to the work of a man He will requite him, and according to his ways He will make it befall him.
12 Of a truth, God will not do wickedly, and the Almighty will not pervert justice.
13 Who gave Him charge over the earth and who laid on Him the whole world?
14 If He should take back His spirit to Himself, and gather to Himself His breath,
15 all flesh would perish together, and man would return to dust.
16 If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say.
17 Shall one who hates justice govern? Will you condemn Him who is righteous and mighty,
18 who says to a king, 'Worthless one,' and to nobles, 'Wicked man';
19 who shows no partiality to princes, nor regards the rich more than the poor, for they are all the work of His hands?
20 In a moment they die; at midnight the people are shaken and pass away, and the mighty are taken away by no human hand.
21 For His eyes are upon the ways of a man, and He sees all his steps.
22 There is no gloom or deep darkness where evildoers may hide themselves.
23 For He has not appointed a time for any human to go before God in judgment.
24 He shatters the mighty without investigation, and sets others in their place.
25 Thus, knowing their works, He overturns them in the night, and they are crushed.
26 He strikes them for their wickedness in the sight of men,
27 because they turned aside from following Him, and had no regard for any of His ways,
28 so that they caused the cry of the poor to come to Him, and He heard the cry of the afflicted --
29 When He is quiet, who can condemn? When He hides his face, who can see Him, whether it be a nation or a man? --
30 that a godless person should not reign, that he should not ensnare the people.
31 For has any one said to God, 'I have borne chastisement; I will not offend any more;
32 teach me what I do not see; if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more'?
33 Will He then make requital to suit you, because you reject it? For you must choose, and not I; therefore declare what you know.
34 Men of understanding will say to me, and the wise man who hears me will say:
35 'Job speaks without knowledge, his words are without insight.'
36 Would that Job were tried to the end, because he answers like wicked men.
37 For he adds rebellion to his sin; he claps his hands among us, and multiplies his words against God."
Matthew 25:41 Then He will say to those at His left hand (i.e. the immoral-majority left-wingers): 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels....
Second Thessalonians 1:9 They shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His might....
Jude 1:7 ....just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal [hell]fire.
