translations

Someone posted in LJ that the Bible no where condemns homosexuality. I quoted to the individual First Corinthians 6 verse 9 as one place of several in the Bible that clearly teaches homosexuality is a sin. The individual shot back and said I was quoting a translation of the Bible that did not match up with other translations of the Bible. Below I quote from several translations of the Bible on 1 Corinthians 6:9. To me I am not into following the opinions of men, but the eternal truths of the Bible. I remember these verses from Revelation, "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and muderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood" Rev. 22:14,15.

My supreme desire as a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ is to be faithful to His Word. I know people out in the world hate the Bible and its teaching on the sin of homosexuality. I can either go along with the wicked or be faithful to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by confessing His Word in the face of the hatred of the world.

"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites" 1 Corinthians 6:9 [New King James translation/version]

"Do you not know that unrighteous people will have no inheritance in the kingdom of God? Do not deceive yourselves: there will be no inheriting the kingdom of God for fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, or perverts" 1 Corinthians 6:9 ["An Expanded Paraphrase Of The Epistles Of Paul" by F.

"You know perfectly well that people who do wrong will not inherit the kingdom of God: people of immoral lives, idolaters, adulterers, catamites, sodomites" 1 Corinth. 6:9 [The Jerusalem Bible] catamites meaning "a boy kept for the purpose of sexual perversion"

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals" 1 Corinth. 6:9 [New American Standard Version/translation]
