Societal attitudes toward homosexuality vary greatly across different cultures and historical periods, as do attitudes toward sexual desire, activity and relationships in general. All cultures have their own values regarding appropriate and inappropriate sexuality ; some sanction same-sex love and sexuality , while others may disapprove of such activities in part. Many of the world's cultures have, in the past, considered procreative sex within a recognized relationship to be a sexual norm—sometimes exclusively so, and sometimes alongside norms of same-sex love, whether passionate, intimate or sexual. Some sects within some religions , especially those influenced by the Abrahamic tradition , have censured homosexual acts and relationships at various times, in some cases implementing severe punishments.
And some Christians, including some national church leaders, have wavered on the issue, even recently. But sadly, when people refuse to acknowledge the sinfulness of homosexuality—calling evil good and good evil Isaiah —they do so at the expense of many souls. How should you respond to the success of the gay agenda? Should you accept the recent trend toward tolerance, or should you side with those who exclude homosexuals with hostility and disdain? In reality, the Bible calls for a balance between what some people think are two opposing reactions—condemnation and compassion.
