They speculate that Paul was specifically addressing Greco-Roman culture, in which homosexual behavior took the form of male prostitution and pederasty (the practice of adolescent boys selling themselves for sex with older men); thus Paul’s condemnations (Rom.

; 1 Cor. ), they argue, had more to do with lust and exploitation than. The Wesleyan Church’s stance on gender and human sexuality is biblical, historical, theological, practical, and deeply convictional.
