Abstract

This is the first of two contributions that are asking how the New Testament can be used in a responsible manner in the debate about homosexuality. It is clear that this is a complex issue which is driven by subjective opinions about the phenomenon itself, and by the selection and analysis of passages chosen for the chosen viewpoint of the individual. Different arguments are steering the debate: emotional, societal pressure, biological-psychological, biblical, theological, and technical arguments all find their way in different
contexts.
