12 Well-Known Pastors and Leaders Respond to the Question: “Is Homosexuality a Sin?”

12 Well-Known Pastors and Leaders Respond to the Question: “Is Homosexuality a Sin?”

Observation:  Churchleaders.com has collected a set of 12 Pastors and Leaders who answer the question in an interview with media: Is Homosexuality a sin?  Having watched several of the interviews,  the media and I would say driven by the LGBT community progress and work to the develop the debate in their favor.  While Pastors and Leaders defend positions on the hot-button issue of Homosexuality.

However,  whether the Church or Body of Christ call Homosexuality a sin or capitulates to the  Homosexuality agenda. The LGBT idea is advanced by the notion of an individual struggling with Homosexuality or many sins cannot convert by the power of the Gospel.  The world successfully advances the idea that it is cruel and inhumane to keep people from enjoying life- when quite the opposite is true. Anyone trapped by sin is clearly unhappy and the suicidal statistics bear this out. The scriptures bear out a sinful lifestyle do not equate to happiness, joy, and peace.  So it stands to reason condoning and accepting sinful behavior will have a little effect on the suicidal rate- an argument perpetuated by the LGBT.

Pressure is applied getting the Church to exchange God’s love for the love of the world and the lusts to deny the power of God through trickery. If some Churches capitulate to Homosexuality where will it finish and those Churches lose their effectiveness as salt to the world.  Where is the bold speech that the Gospel becomes the power to transform peoples lives?  There is often talk of unity but when will the Body of Christ say in unison in the face of controversial hot-button topic issues dealing with sin; At the root, the real sin is an unbelief and rejection of God His Majesty and Holiness and His great power to transform the individual grappling with sin.

Wickedness and evil are at the root of rebellion towards God and what God has blessed.  Christ has the power to forgive and to heal. With the Power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His  Word, all things are possible with God.  Through Christ, believers become crucified with Him and raised into a new Creation- transformed by His Power- putting to death a sinful nature that would otherwise keep the sinner trapped. In a world that chimes all love is love and Love Wins! Christ matchless Love Wins when the sinner is changed through the power of God!


These pastors and leaders all spoke out publicly on their views about homosexuality and same-sex marriage. We believe it’s important for pastors and leaders to have an answer ready on this hot-button cultural issue. So we invite you to watch how these well-known pastors handled themselves in the public […]

1. Joel Osteen

In this clip, Joel gets grilled about homosexuality on live TV. He does state the Bible calls the practice of homosexuality a sin, but he demurs and tries to change the direction of the conversation as well.

2. Rick Warren

As a guest on Piers Morgan, Rick answers the question directly and stays strong on his biblical stance–even though Piers is convinced he will wear Rick down one day.

3. Tim Keller

In this conversation at the Veritas forum, Keller offers a response focused on loving our neighbors–whether our neighbors come from different religions or sexual orientation. He does call homosexuality sin, but he digs a little deeper into the constructs of sin in relation to salvation.

4. Franklin Graham

In this chat with Piers Morgan, Graham stays strong on the fact that God defines marriage, not government.

5. Kirk Cameron

Kirk believes that marriage was defined by God and that homosexuality is a sin. “It’s unnatural, it’s detrimental and ultimately destructive…”

6. Tony Evans

In this interview with Soledad O’Brien, Evans doesn’t budge in the importance of following God’s Word and not changing with the direction of culture when it comes to homosexuality and gay marriage. However, Soledad is clearly not convinced.

7. John MacArthur

In this Larry King interview John MacArthur discusses the biblical approach to homosexuality as he sits next to a homosexual man. The interview is tense and emotional.

8. Carl Lentz

In this HuffPo interview Lentz makes it clear he doesn’t believe it’s the church’s role to make bold political or cultural statements on private issues like homosexuality. This view is consistent with Hillsong’s overall perspective.

9. John Piper

Piper goes a step further to explain “Why” homosexuality is offensive to God and to be avoided.

10. Perry Noble

In a sermon series at NewSpring, Perry shoots straight with the church on this issue. He boldly declares that he doesn’t hate homosexuals and they’re welcome at the church, but it is a sin and he hopes they find freedom through the Gospel.


11. Matt Chandler

This clip is longer (running 37 minutes) but it’s a valuable Q & A on culture and theology–and Chandler covers the issue of homosexuality in the first question.

12. Mike Glenn

In this clip, Pastor Mike Glenn of Brentwood Baptist Church shares his perspective on the issue of homosexuality and how their church handles it–compared to other sins.
