New Research: Fewer Americans Believe Homosexuality Is a Sin
Following President Obama's affirmation of same-sex marriage in May of last year, LifeWay Research released data showing the public was split on the issue of whether homosexuality was a sin.

Today we have released new, updated data showing the percentage of Americans who believe homosexuality is a sin has decreased significantly over the past year. There is little doubt that the President's evolution on homosexuality probably impacted the evolution of cultural values. This is a real and substantive shift, surprisingly large for a one-year timeframe-- though this was hardly a normal year on this issue.

From the release:

A November 2012 survey of adults in the United States found 37 percent affirm a belief that homosexual behavior is a sin - a statistically significant change from a September 2011 LifeWay Research survey asking the same question. At that time, 44 percent answered, "Yes." ...

Frank you are right,.. you cannot ignore the tenets and responsibilities of the faith and then claim the benefits.
I agree with your entire comment and it goes well with my thoughts regarding Lordship Salvation. If Jesus is Savior, then He is Lord. If the Holy Spirit isn't guiding and directing us, then we aren't in the faith. I also agree this is sometimes difficult to pin down with certainty, but that doesn't detract from your points. It would be like saying we are in Christ, but don't love the brethren, etc.

If someone practices sin without godly regret, confession and repentance then they are not in the faith; that is your point and mine as well.

In the Netherlands within the Protestant Church congregations (except the conservative or strict ones) the conformation with socially and worldly accepted opinion on homofily is widely spread. There are even gay reverends. Many believers subscribe the non biblical opinion that the love of Christ will justify the act of two persons of the same sexe living together as husband and wife and sometimes even suggest that those passages in the Bible handling about homofily, are culturally determined and thus oldfashioned and outdated. It is not seen as sinful anymore. For most non believers and a very great minority of believers homofily is socially accepted but not always full hearted. So in the churches it is a great struggle, also because there are a lot of church abandoners. In order to win back lost terrain, there is a tendency to act socially accepted. But this goes on the expense of losing the Biblical foundations and the great risc of becoming a false church.
In the Netherlands the number of active believers as well as in Protestant and Roman Catholic churches is decreasing increasingly fast. The numbers of closed down churches are increasing every month.
I don't know how this is in the States, but the Netherlands are secularizing at a great pace. With all consequences...

Frank you are right,.. you cannot ignore the tenets and responsibilities of the faith and then claim the benefits. I think the core issue is two fold. One,... is the person a believer,... repenting of all sin. Two,... are they growing more Christlike. I know that that is not easy to pin down, but they are essential. Some would make the distinction with behavior and thought, but Jesus tells us that if we lust, we have committed adultery. So again it comes down to has Jesus claimed you and as Romans 8 talks about pardoned your sin. Then are you walking toward or away from your sin. Are you repentant or justifying it? Finally, we cannot and dare not try to tell a HOLY GOD what he meant. He said that having relations with the same sex is sin. There is no appeal. If Christians end up in the 1% with God on this, we are still in the MAJORITY. Truth does not change due to popular opinion. That being said, we must have compassion and love toward those who are struggling to follow Jesus with this attraction, it must be an immense and confusing burden. Pray for them!
I agree on that. Those people are sinners, just like you and me, and burdened with a huge load. But also for them is grace. Keep in mind that we all have our own full backpacks..

It is appointed unto men once to die, and after that the judgment. It doesn't matter what ANY American thinks, in the last day we will all stand before the Lord Jesus and it is His judgment that will matter.

Yes, Frank and James. They are so afraid of what other people think...I'm not and will speak out about this or that no matter where I am, no matter what company I'm in. They happen to be Roman Catholics so they are going against their own church on this. In my experience, the motto of most RC's is: keep to yourself and don't ruffle any feathers.
Really frustrating since they are passing this on to their children because they care so much about what others think of them. They will be held accountable for what they have taught their children, and their parents will be held accountable for what they taught them...

Yes, C000, that is a problem, you have families strongly against divorce until some of the members of their families are involved in that. It is still a sin No matter what the percentage of people think queerness is ok, there is actually a majority of One when He says something that is it, The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin

Most pastors don't speak to this issue. Check out their websites to see where they are on homosexuality. These days it's not so much what your pastor (like Giglio) says but what he omits that matters.

I really fear for what they are allowing their youg elementary school children to grow up believing. They don't seem to care what the Bible say about it bur do seem to carw what others think about their opinions. This is really fruatrating for the childrens sake. They call them "partners" now amd ask the parents if they are partners when they see two girls or two guys together.
I agree Christopher, but I will take your thoughts one step further. If they don't think homosexuality is a sin, then they aren't in the faith. I think it sort of boils down to them loving the world and desiring not to look foolish or hateful in its eyes. Either way,they are denying the Savior!

Luke 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and [in his] Father's, and of the holy angels.
