Some people argue that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality. Since Jesus was silent on the subject, they say, he was either neutral on the matter or He affirmed it. These same people try unsuccessfully to place Jesus and John (the disciple whom Jesus loved) in a homosexual relationship; they make the same attempt with King David and Jonathon.

 

Actually, Jesus addressed all sexual disorders by affirming marriage and gender distinctions as they were from the beginning. Matthew 19:4-6 records this interaction between Jesus and the Pharisees.

 

And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful to divorce one's wife for any cause?” He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

 

When asked a question about marriage and divorce, Jesus went back to the beginning. Creation not the culture provides the basis for His answer. His approach reminds me of how the FBI investigates counterfeit currency. They do so by making their agents study authentic currency until they know every last detail found on a real dollar bill. That way they can spot a fake easily. By reminding them of the norm established in the creation story about human sexuality and marriage, Jesus addressed all deviations of any kind including homosexuality and so-called “gay marriage.”

 

Besides, to say that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality assumes an incorrect view of Scripture. “All Scripture is inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:6). That means the Bible’s black letters are no less the inspired Word of God than the red letters. Jesus is the ultimate author of the entire Bible, including what it says about homosexuality in Romans chapter 1.

What scripture can you give a person that says where in the Bible that homosexuality is wrong
vincent Guzman says:
Corinthians 6:9 (KJV)numbers homosexuals & sodomites with the unrighteous as not inheriting the Kingdom of God. The list also includes fornicators, thieves, idolaters, etc. etc, because this is an unholy and rebellious way of life that is not glorifying or pleasing to the Lord.
MARK says:
Back when I was drawing up any act of gayness was considered a form oform a perversion and now they're making gay in gay people glorified and it's supposed to be something great when I know that it's not right it is man and woman and woman not man and man and a man or woman woman it's sick to me it's just perverted But that's just my opinion I thought it said in The Bible that being gay was wrong but I'm reading about it now but there are so many different different stories out there which one you're which 1 AM I to believe the 1 I feel in my stomach my gut feeling it tells me it's just a glorified perverted act done by 2 years 2 human beings of the same sex That is gross and horrible and despicable But it doesn't change the way I feel about that person that person I'll treat him just like I would anybody else but anybody else but my personal opinion is it's just an act of being perverted being a pervert and you know if they do to people in prison that are perverts even though the prisons are full of perverts It's just one big mess owing God can handle it can handle it so let's see how he rules he rules and a lot people do whatever they want he gave them the right to make their own choices so let's see what he thinks when the time comes......
Chris says:
You don’t actually reference Jesus’s teaching nor scripture where jesus says anything about gay marriage. And Corinthians isn’t about Nessus teachings but of his followers. So it’s just another persons interpretation of what is moral.

Hackle says:
If God had meant for man to be with man then wouldn’t he have created them to also multiply without woman’s seed? Read Romans chapter 1 vs 26 and 27, God Abandoned them to their shameful desires! Even woman turned against their natural way to have sex and indulged in sex with each other! No two women nor two men can have children without a man’s seed or woman’s egg! That is pure and simple science! The only way that a pair of women can conceive a child is through a doctor’s intervention with a man’s seed! No natural way. An ghat happen UNLESS God were to intervene BUT HE WON’T!
Mike Kerr says:
God, as Jesus, said to divorce and remarry is to commit adultery, to break a Commandment. Half of American marriages end in divorce. Most remarry, and most are Christian. Can't pick and choose the quotes you like. As far as what's "natural", God must intend for birth defects. We should leave them alone and let them suffer. If a doctor intervenes, it's not natural.
Ben says:
We should be free to love whoever we want. Humans have been on Earth for about 10,000 years. Christianity for 2,000. You don't think homosexuality hasn't existed long before religion came along? Now ask yourself this. If homosexuality is just a small percentage of the population, by religious peoples logic, it should have eradicated itself centuries if not millenniums ago. Here we are in the 21st century and yet we are still racist, discriminating bigots. Life is too damn short, spend your time with the one who makes you happy; fuck religion. You respect me, I respect you. Plain and simple.
Pastor Vanessa Estes says:
Jesus gives permission for someone to remarry when adultery has taken place. “And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”9 Here, the phrase “and marries another” raises the issue of remarriage. Jesus states that divorcing a mate on the grounds of immorality frees the offended mate to remarry without committing adultery. Paul upholds the idea of permanency in marriage10, whether it be to a believer or unbeliever, yet gives permission for a believing mate to separate if deserted by an unbeliever. Paul states, “Yet if the unbelieving one leaves, let him leave; the brother or sister is not under bondage (no longer bound) in such cases, but God has called us to peace.”11 According to Paul, because desertion severs the marital bonds an abandoned believer is not commanded to stay in this marriage. An implication of the marriage bonds being severed is that remarriage is possible, but we must acknowledge that remarriage is not specifically addressed by Paul in this passage Homosexuality is a sin. But at the end of the day, people are going to do what they want and have NO respect of God's Word. But one day, God will show Himself to all and they will know what they already know.
