The Bible nowhere directly mentions bisexuality. However, it is clear from the Bible's denunciations of homosexuality that bisexuality would also be considered sinful. Leviticus 18:22 declares havi...

First of all, don't let modern day nomenclature confuse the issue. "Bisexuality" is the liberal term used to disguise the real issue. If you rephrase the question to get at the heart of the matter, it might look like this, "Is it okay for me to indulge in homosexual sin ever?" Does this help clarify the situation?

The answer is no. Bisexuality, also classified as part time homosexuality is always a sin and is never acceptable in the eyes of The Lord. By the way, the word "homosexuality" isn't in the bible either. However, it is perfectly described in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. Leviticus 18:22 says that a man will not lie down with (have sex with) a man as he would with a woman because it is an abomination to God. Romans 1:27 says that men gave up natural relations with women and burned with passion for other men and committed shameless acts with each other.

Full time homosexuality and part time homosexuality (bisexuality) directly rebel against God's plan that provides for one man and one woman, period. No, bisexuality is never okay.

As a note, be alert for attempts on the part of "progressive" groups trying to redefine issues. For example, pro-choice is the liberal method of disguising pro-death in the abortion debate.

What does the Bible say about bisexuality? Is being a bisexual a sin?

Well! I have not come across in the Bible, where it actually mentions bisexuality. However, let us look back to the beginning of creation. God made A woman and brought her to the man. That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his WIFE, and they become one flesh. 

God created the man, and later created a woman to be the man’s wife. God did not made a man to be a man’s wife. Moreover, bisexuality was not actually mention in direct words. However, ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS. 

God’s Creation was with a perfect purpose. Then man came along and decided to do things his way. Gay marriages happen and so on. Just like the forbidden fruit. God created the beautiful life for man to live and enjoy, gave man free excess to all trees except this tree in the middle of the Garden. God specifically told them to stay away from it, not to touch nor eat. However, man wants to do things his way and to live life his way. Therefore, he disobeyed God and failed.

Bottom line, we are all sinners in many different directions. So there for, we all should watch our own steps and not to watch other people’s steps, and how they live their lives. We cannot control what other people do, but we can control what we do. 

Let me conclude by saying: 
We all need to pray the Tax Collector’s Prayer and not the Pharisee’s.: 
The Pharisee prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’
“But the Tax Collector, He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and prayed, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
