Malakoi

Paul condemned those described with the Greek word “malakoi” in I Corinthians 6:9. (the word is translated “homosexuals” in the NKJV)

John R.W. Stott defines this word in his 1985 book “Homosexual Marriage” – “It meant males (not necessarily boys) who played the passive role in homosexual intercourse.”

This word (Strong’s #3120) is defined as:

· Arndt and Gingrich (“among the most highly respected dictionaries of Biblical Greek,” Wikipedia) – … effeminate, especially of catamites, men and boys who allow themselves to be misused homosexually

· Wigram-Green – effeminate (specifically as of homosexual males)

So I Corinthians 6:9 condemns homosexual relations.  As verse 10 says – they shall not “inherit the kingdom of God.”
