VAN ZYL, Hermie C.. Romeine 1:26-27: Evaluering van eksegetiese en hermeneutiese argumente in die debat oor selfdegeslagverhoudings. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2016, vol.50, n.2, pp.1-13. ISSN 2305-0853.

Romans 1:26-27 plays an important role in the same sex relationships debate. The present study is a review article and focuses on all the important pro same sex relationships arguments vis-à-vis this text, that is, those exegetical and hermeneutical arguments that relativize the relevancy of this text for the debate. Furthermore, in this debate a sharp distinction is not always drawn between exegetical and hermeneutical insights. The article aims at rectifying this deficiency. First the true exegetical arguments are identified and evaluated, and thereafter the hermeneutical insights. The conclusion is that, in this case, it is not the exegetical arguments that are decisive, but the hermeneutical insights.
