What relationships does God forbid

The Bible contains teachings that guide us about good and bad things and today we are going to talk about the relationships that God forbids men in the world.

We all know that there are some things that God forbids us to do, depending on whether or not we follow God's word in our lives.

The Bible makes it very clear which are the relationships that God abhors and those that God supports so that we, his children, can do to tarnish his name.

Relationships that God forbids

God forbids any kind of immoral relationship, which is not in line with respect for the partner, adultery, cheating relationships, homosexuality, relationships between family members and abnormal fetishes.

Everyone is free to do as they please, but in the eyes of the Lord, certain actions can be wrong, and the Bible makes it clear that people who do wrong things will not go to heaven.

Based on the verse of Leviticus 18, God establishes a series of rules to be followed about which relationships are prohibited and which are accepted.

1. God forbids homosexuality

Despite being a very controversial subject nowadays, it is mentioned in the Bible that God forbids homosexual relationships. That is, same-sex relationships.

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor passive or active homosexuals, neither thieves, nor covetous, nor alcoholics, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the Kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

After reading the above verse it is quite clear that the bible forbids homosexuality as one of the relationships forbidden by God.

Each religion has its own opinion on this matter, and we are just quoting what the Bible says and not our own opinion on the matter.

“You shall not lie with a man as with a woman; it is bomination. Leviticus 18: 22

Same-sex relationships are not tolerated by God as it is something that breaks what he has said about his creation. As the above verse makes clear.

2. God forbids relationships with family members

The Bible makes it very clear that God forbids any kind of relationship between people of the same family, no matter if people are of the same blood or not.

No man will come near to any of his relatives to uncover her nakedness. I am the Lord. (Leviticus 18:7-18; Leviticus 20:11-21)

In several verses the Bible mentions that God forbids relationship with people of the same family and even God forbids seeing these people naked.

The family refers to people of the same surname, father, mother, grandmother, cousin, sister, brothers-in-law and any family designation.

3. God forbids relationships with animals

God abhors relationships with any type of animal, and this is quite explicit in the Bible, and the verse below can reach.

nor you you will lie with an animal, to defile yourself with it; nor shall a woman stand before an animal, to mate with it; confusion is. Leviticus 18: 23

The Bible makes it clear that relationships with animals are forbidden for both men and women.

4. God forbids adulterous relationships

Adultery in the Bible means betrayal by both woman and man. God forbids, abhors any kind of betrayal that can be committed in marriage.

But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:28

In this verse we see that the bible is more rigid and says that God forbids even coveting a woman, even without having relations with her it is already a sin.

God abhors and forbids that both men and women have lovers.

6. God forbids intercourse with a menstruating woman

Few people know, but the Bible makes it clear that God I call abhors relationships with a woman who is menstruating.

And thou shalt not come near the woman during the filth of her menses, to uncover your nakedness. Leviticus 18: 22

From the above verse it is clear that this is something abhorred by God and man must respect this process and wait for it to end.

7. God forbids prostitution

The Bible also makes it clear that prostitution is an act totally forbidden by God. Prostitution is the act of exchanging money for relationships.

Thou shalt not defile thy daughter by making her play the harlot, lest the land play the harlot or be filled with wickedness. Leviticus 19:29

In this and other verses of the bible, it is made clear that the practice of prostitution is forbidden and abhorred by God.


After digging through the bible, we found some verses that can help us find some answers to find out the answers.

Based on the verse Leviticus 18, God lays down a series of rules to be followed about which relationships are forbidden and which are accepted.

God leaves the sexual relationship with our husbands to our discretion, but we must always remember to always do the right thing, and not fall into temptations.
