Abstract: In 1Cor. 6:9-10 Paul gives a warning to those who will not enter into the kingdom of God. Among them are the arsenokoitai. Who are they? Eighteen (18) of the southern Ghana mother-tongue translations of the text were studied. Fifteen (15) of them say the arsenokoitai are “men who have sexual relations with other men,” while two (2) say they are “men or women who have sexual relations with other men or women”; and one (1) say “men who arouse themselves sexually”. The study is limited in that it does not look at how the term is translated in the other Ghanaian translations, namely in Nzema, Sefwi, and some of the northern languages into which the full Bible or the New Testament or portions of it has been translated. However, in the wake of media reportage about homosexual activities in Ghana, which of the three strands of the translation of arsenokoitai best fits the Ghanaian scene?
