Keep it in context:
"Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man not to
2 But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own
wife, and each woman her own husband.
7 I wish that all men were as I am. But each man has his own gift from
God; one has this gift, another has that.
8 Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay
unmarried, as I am.
9 But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is
better to marry than to burn with passion."
Paul clearly states married life and celibacy are both acceptable life choices.
And the gay:
LEV 18:22 "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is
No option here.
LEV 20:13 "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them
have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will
be on their own heads."
And Paul on gay, murder, divorce et cetera:
1CO 6:9 "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of
God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor
adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers
will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were
sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by
the Spirit of our God.
1TI 1:8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly.
9 We also know that law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers
and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious; for those
who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,
10 for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers-
-and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine"
Black and white. And Paul mentions that Christianity is open to all, but changing the doctrine is not.
I took your tangent but the point to your OP is that Christianity is what it is as defined by the Bible. Take it or leave it.
