Is Bisexuality a Sin?

[Posted on December 13, 1999]

Rev. Turner:

I want to know: Am I a sinner if I like to be bisexual? Thanks for your response.

Dear Child of God,

In a word -- NO! The gender of who we are attracted to in a sexual way is not a sin. However, how one handles their sexual practice can be a cause for sin. When we are having sex with no consideration for the other person and meeting only our needs, then we are participating in an abusive act.

Bisexuality simply means you are capable of falling in love with and maintaining a sexual relationship with either gender. Which gender you develop a committed and loving relationship with is your choice and theirs.

God Bless,

Pastor Paul
