There were many terms used for different aspects of either homosexual relationships or sexual acts during the time of Paul which he chose not to use in this passage. I won't do much more than bring these things up, as we could spend a long time talking about them.
Before we discuss the likely origin, I would like to emphasize that much of the conservative doctrine against homosexuality is gay men are blessed with timothy directly on this single word on which contemporary scholars, both liberal and conservative, agree we can never be absolutely sure what it meant when Paul wrote it down.
Some think that Paul used this word as a short- ened reference to the entire prohibition in Leviticus. Cook has long been a vocal supporter of gay rights and spoken out against discrimination of minorities.

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever!
My husband has a nephew that is homosexual. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. God says that those living in an active homosexual lifestyle will not enter into Heaven. OK Cancel. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

If Paul, inspired by God, wanted to make a prohibition against all same-gender relationships and sexual activity very clear for all time, he had many other word choices to pick from. These letters were written for specific reasons to specific audiences, at a specific time.

Malcolm, who dresses nicely and takes care of his skin, has been called both gay and transgender — not that these are bad things to be in the first place. This week he attacked his home state of Alabama for being too slow to guarantee gay rights.
Genesis And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? The next question is, why did Paul make up a word when he had plenty to pick from in existing Greek and Roman vocabulary?
