What does the Bible say about LGBTQIA+ people?


We believe the Bible does not condemn same-gender orientation, nor does it address transgender identity. Many Seventh-day Adventist Christians, from laypeople to seminary professors, have studied the biblical texts related to same-gender sexual acts and have concluded that what the Bible doesn't say is as important as what it does say.
 


You can believe the Bible and
welcome the LGBTQ community

Pastor Colby Martin researched the 6 texts that are traditionally used to condemn LGBTQ people. He shares both his research findings and his personal journey of growth. Kinship is sharing this book free to all. We believe it does an outstanding job of explaining the original context and how we can have more inclusive communities today.
