Does God send gay people to hell?
The simple answer is NO. The enemy conflates having “natural gay feelings” with God creating them the way they are but sending them to hell. First of all, God does not send someone to hell for being gay or having same-sex attraction.
Gay sex is sin; feelings are not, though it is deceitful. Lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans, and queers have a choice. If they repent, God’s grace abounds, and they are transformed in Christ.
- Having gay feelings may not be a choice, but having same-sex with someone is.
- The Bible calls “gay sex” immoral. Like wine, you do not become a drunkard by being attracted to wine.
- The wicked and immoral people will go to hell. Gay or not, we are destined for hell because of God’s wrath on those who disobey Him.
Gay feelings is not a choice, but having same-sex with someone is.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who submit to or perform homosexual acts, or thieves, greedy, or drunkards, verbal abusers, swindlers—will inherit the kingdom of God.
Gay people who are in Christ
God, rich in love and mercy, sent His own Son as propitiation so we may escape hell. In short, sinners who reject Christ will go to hell because they have no hope except the fearful expectation of fire that will consume the enemies of God. (Hebrews 10:27)
sinners who rejected Christ will go to hell.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us, 5 made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. You are saved by grace!
6 Together with Christ Jesus, He also raised us and seated us in the heavens, 7 so that in the coming ages, He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace through His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— 9 not from works so that no one can boast. 10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
God loves the sinner but not the sin is not in the Bible
Jesus said only God is good when a disciple called Him “good teacher.” It implies that if God is the only one who is good, the rest of us are sinners who will face God’s judgment.
The face of the Lord is against those who do evil which He will cut off from the earth (Psalm 34:16). Therefore, it is not the sin itself but the sinner who will be accountable to God.
You are saved by grace, not by what you do
The bottom line, whatever one’s struggle is, real change is possible by asking Jesus to transform you. At the end of the day, it’s choosing between what we want and what honors God.
