Effeminate in the bible
The Bible is clear in its condemnation of effeminate men. According to Corinthians (6: 9-10), the effeminate would be excluded from the kingdom of God, and puts them on the same level as adulterers, thieves, drunkards or scammers. However, the biblical text does not expressly consider sin the fact of a man being or having effeminate behavior, but the fact of a man being actively homosexual.
