There are a number of reasons why Scripture and traditional Christianity oppose this. God designed sex to be enjoyed within a committed marital relationship. To remove it from that context is to pervert its use and severely limit its enjoyment.”
Nagel also talks about homosexuality, and settles that using this quarrel one can hardly call homosexuality perverse, since two persons of the same sex can certainly have complete communication (Nagel, 16). Though in this way he emphasizes his prior declarations about fetishism, bestiality, and sex with more than one pair of partners. Conversely, Nagel makes no room for masturbation, regrettably not addressing it at all. Regrettably because masturbation is so normally called into question in the dialogue of what constitutes sexual perversion. Nagel’s
Heterosexuals deal with lust as much as homosexuals. To have a thought is not of itself sinful. How that thought is entertained will determine whether that thought becomes sinful. Will I give in to my lusts or will I bring them captive to Christ? A person can identify therefore as homosexual but not give in to their lusts and live a godly life, just as a single man
Therefore, Devlin would have thought the same for polyandry. Polyandry conviction should be held only when its violation become intolerable and Devlin argues that majority view in morality still prevails but in R v Bisgop finally it was held that homosexuality was an amputation against character. Nevertheless, Devlin would have thought that majority will think polyandry to be immoral
Homosexuality as a very controversial issue in many societies, there are many viewpoints that people need to ponder as there are many factors that affect a person’s outlook. Social and religious insights are taken in to consideration. Since then it has been a subject of many debates and discussion as some view homosexuality as immoral. In the Bible there are many passages that talks about homosexuality as it is sexually immoral. Seeing in a religious view God designed men and women with their specific function and the concept of man is for woman and woman is for man only, as they are both complementary (Grudem, 2013).
It is very common for those of the Christian faith to sin and goes against the word of the bible. According to the Washington post by the age of 20 on 12% of people had married but 77% had already had sex before marriage. (Walton, D., 2010). People pick and choose the standard at which they hold sins, and this point strengthens Michaelson’s argument. As long as same sex marriage is not directly affecting society marriage should be allowed.
Jacqueline Murray, an expert in Medieval studies, discusses about the relationship about men and sexuality and how during the Middle Ages society used to perceive men’s sexuality. Sexual relationships between a man and woman was natural, only if both the man and woman were married, however, self-stimulation was considered a sin. In the Middle Ages, man, were seen as superior, they perceive man’s body as a creation of God, and it signified grace(pg 1)1. These interpretation were influenced by religion, and it also had a very large influence regarding sexual morality during the Medieval Times, because of Adam and Eve (pg 2). Murray illustrates that masturbation was considered a temptation by the devil and ,as described by the philosopher Augustine, it was considered lower than an animal's appetite (pg5).
Christian theologists believe sin to be as an act of offense against God. This can be done by hating His people and Christian Biblical Law, or by injuring others. It is also defined as making a choice that is morally wrong. St. Augustine of Hippo classified sin as a word, deed or want in opposition to the eternal law of God (127). Other Christian theologists, such as Pelagius, define sin as a loss of love for God and an increasing love for one’s self.
Unfortunately, in the book of Genesis, the sin of consuming the forbidden fruit is what most remember Adam and Eve for doing. Due to this sin, they conceal their bodies from their natural state, which confiscates part of their sexuality. However, before their sin, they never thought of their sexuality as embarrassing or wrong. In “Children of Adam,” Whitman employs this idea of sexuality as a natural part of life to support that sexuality should not be viewed as a negative aspect of our society, yet celebrated. For example, the lines, “Such-like I love—I loosen myself, pass freely, am at the mother’s breast with the little child,” compares sexual sensuality to a necessity.
It means that homosexuality has an element that is not perceptibly different from each other, although the limits are quite distinct. Romans 1:26-28 states that “26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error 28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be
