- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
6:9 Idolatry is here placed between fornication and adultery, because they generally accompanied it. Nor the effeminate - Who live in an easy, indolent way; taking up no cross, enduring no hardship. But how is this? These good - natured, harmless people are ranked with idolaters and sodomites! We may learn hence, that we are never secure from the greatest sins, till we guard against those which are thought the least; nor, indeed, till we think no sin is little, since every one is a step toward hell.
1Co 6:9 The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God. The glorious kingdom of which the church is the earthly type. The church is God's kingdom on earth, and its faithful members "inherit" the heavenly kingdom (Mt 25:34). Be not deceived. Let no one make the mistake of thinking that any unrighteous man shall be an heir. Effeminate. This and the next phrase refer to a shameful crime quite prevalent among the heathen, the first submitting themselves to the foul sensuality, and the second actively "abusing themselves with men", contrary to nature. Both are Sodomites. None guilty of any one of the list of vices given can be an heir of heaven.

Is it possible to resist all the sins without being filled with the HOLY SPIRIT?
If no, how do I submit myself to GOD? Can I submit to Him unrighteously?
Because I am afraid without true submission, being filled with the Holy Spirit if fairly impossible.

I am responding to Terrance's comment / question
which is : "Is homo***uality really a sin?" Yes-
it most certainly is a sin. I truly sympathize that you are struggling with it , and it is joyful
that you believe God will deliver you from it in the future . Rejoice , because Christ declared that He will NOT turn anyone away who comes to Him . If you seek forgiveness , healing , and a new life - go to Christ with a penitent heart , and He will not turn you away !!! You are NOT alone , Terrance !!! MANY people struggle with all
kinds of sins , including ***ual immorality . I do
too - but I know that God is reforming me , and will complete a work He has begun in me . I have the same hope for you as well ...!! Don't take the sinful state for granted , but do remember the
theif on the cross who was forgiven ALL his sins and promised by Christ that he would be in paradise with Him that very day ... !! God bless you , Terrance !!!

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you, James 4:7.

Is homosexuality really a sin? I have been trying to change but I really struggle with it, I know one day God will deliver me from it.
