I received the following question:

Are Sodomites signifying gays in 1 Tim. 1:10? “for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,”

Yes. That is not the word used in Greek, though, but is based on the English use of “Sodomites” as meaning homosexuals. The Greek word is arsenokoitēs, from arsen, meaning a male, and koitē, meaning a bed, the marriage-bed, or sexual intercourse. It basically means a man who has sex with a male as opposed to a female.
