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.

Seventh-Gay Adventists

Growing up Adventist means knowing you belong. And being Adventist is about much more than a set of beliefs--it's a close-knit community not easily left. Faith, identity, and sexuality collide in this raw and moving documentary about the challenges and spiritual journeys of three Seventh-day Adventists who love God and their church and are also gay.

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.

Did you know — the word "Homosexual" was added to the Bible in 1946?

1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted a Culture is a new documentary that investigates how the word “homosexual” was entered into the Bible, how one man tried to stop it, and how a team of researchers recently unearthed evidence that challenges deeply held beliefs about LGBTQ+ people and their place in God’s kingdom. Stay tuned for more information about its release and opportunities to hear directly from the creators.
