    Biblical Viewpoint of Homosexuality When viewing homosexuality from a Biblical perspective, it is easy to see that the practice of having sex while being gay or lesbian is a sin.

    Homosexuality has existed throughout history. Writings from ancient greek authors, poets and philosophers provide evidence supporting the idea that homosexual behavior was not uncommon. From an evolutionist perspective, this presents a paradox. Homosexuality goes against the idea of reproductive success as an adaptive measure of human evolution.
