It is evident from the parallel structure of these ordinances that the term "dog" is here used as an equivalent to "sodomite." Since homosexuality is an "abomination" in God's sight (Leviticus 18:22), it is understandable that Paul should warn Christians to "beware of dogs" (Philippians 3:2) and that, in describing the inhabitants of the New Jerusalem, the Lord Himself says that "without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie" (Revelation 22:15).
