III.  MY CONCLUSIONS

A.    Remember the distinction between same gender attraction and same gender sex.

B.    Does the Bible teach that same gender sex is a sin?  I believe it does.

a.     Same gender sex is never affirmed.

b.     Male and female are establish as the intended order.

c.     The references to same gender activity are always negative.

d.     There are arguments to be made on the other side and they carry weight, but to my mind they are not persuasive.
