Is bisexual a sin
Rather not! Woman and woman, man and man
Or: What a seafood salad has to do with homosexuality
Homosexuality, gay, lesbian - these are modern terms that the Bible does not know. In Leviticus it says: "If anyone lies with a man as with a woman, it is an abomination and both should die." (Leviticus 20:13)
In the same 3rd book of Moses it is written: Eating living beings out of the water without scales and fins, for example mussels or scampi, is also an abomination. (Leviticus 11, 10) So whoever orders a Frutta di Mare platter while on vacation in Italy should die of death? Blood sausage is also one of the atrocities - bad news for the Hessian slaughterhouse! (Leviticus 19:26)
In interpreting the Bible, homosexuality has often been equated with temple prostitution, rape, or love for boys. Same-sex love has nothing to do with this, however.
The apostle Paul assumes that women and men turn to their own sex out of godlessness (Romans 1:26). Man only love himself. That is a sin. This is how Paul understands homosexuality. A woman loves a woman. A man loves a man. Not out of self-love, but because the other is different - that does not appear in Paul's worldview.
However, the Bible recognizes strong affection between people of the same sex. So Ruth says to her mother-in-law Naomi: “Wherever you go, I want to go too. Wherever you stay, I stay there too. ”(Ruth 1, 16) Amazingly, these words are popular today for bride and groom from woman to woman as wedding words. David also shows strong feelings, he weeps over his deceased friend Jonathan: "Your love was more miraculous to me than love for women." What kind of love is meant by this remains open.
