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.


Earlline says:
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.
Shar Thompson says:
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.”
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.
Denise Queme says:
There are many Christ follows that are so judgmental. Did Christ stone the woman at the well? No but said go and sin no more. Let GOD be the judge. His only son Christ is the Messiah his right hand. Furthermore the Old Testament has many many dos and don'ts and we Christ followers tend to pick and choose what best fit us, us being the judgmentalists. I say take the log out of your eye so that you may see the splinter in others.
Pastor Tobias says:
I like the fact that Pastor Vanessa Estes says that being homosexual is a sin and that they are doing what they want. But it's a matter of wanting... It's part of them, they can't change because of it, nor be be forced by others... It's in our nature! You are all looking at the worst aspects in everyone and that is not following the God's words, that's blasphemy! In the bible it's said "As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions." (Romans 14:1-4), “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;" (Luke 6:37)... We are suppose to love everyone despite the differences or mistakes or preferences! A man or a woman can be homosexual and still be loving and wonderful and caring human beings and it will not be acceptable to harm them in any way or offend them just because of an orientation that does not harm you in any way. What Pastor Vanessa Estes said is indeed sinfull, working against the well being of living beings for an act just because of her own vanity.

Kathleen E Stiebler says:
The Bible is clear on sin period if it’s being gay or smoking cigarettes that harm the temple God gave us. We all fall short including me but the difference is i have a repentance heart. The Holy Spirit convicts me.. gay people try to make their desires right in Gods eyes and all he wants is for you to admit it is against his plan of a man leaving his mother to cling to his wife. That’s his order. We must all go to God and confess our sin and ask him to help us overcome. It does not mean God does not love you or your going to hell. It’s about being honest. The problem with this type of sin is it effects all of society. I do not approve of the behavior but I do love the persons. You are either a Christian or you are not. I am not judging the Bible is so stop saying Christians are judging. The word of God is so deal with God about it. It’s between you and him. You have free will and when you become a Christian you do everything you can to honor God with your life. When gay people die 100 years from now the dna will show man or woman. Just because something feels good does not make it right. Society is trying very hard to making trans, gay and all all other perverse acts to be accepted and I for one will not accept it. It’s wrong in Gods eyes and it up to these people to deal with God one on one to be set free. Many deceiving spirits influence the people in the world and this is a prime example
Joshua Christian Watson says:
Perverted, Sinful, Unnatural... eesh. I am not homosexual and I am a devout Christian studying theology. To all the Christians in this comment section trying to address homosexuality, I don't see or feel much love. Hehe excepts for you, o'll Tobias. Ben has a point though as well on the naturality of things. I know many people who are gay who didn't choose to be. What an unloving God if he made people gay and said it was sinful. There is a lot of foundation out there as to why homosexuality isn't sinful. Do yourselves a favour. If you want to understand it better, hear out those foundation's perspectives as well. You might learn a thing or two. You can start with Dale B. Martin, a retired professor from Yale. And maybe, just maybe, you guys can stop making Christianity such an awful religion which it doesn't have to be.
Jeff Buehler says:
"Actually, Jesus addressed all sexual disorders" is such a blatantly manipulative and biased precursor to the point that follows. It presumes and declares that the entire idea of homosexuality is "a disorder" before it bothers to meaningfully consider and present what is known of Christ's position on the subject. Christ in no way ever suggested or even intimated that homosexuality is a disorder, even by clarifying the combining of a man and a woman as fundamental. Suggesting he supported homosexuality by omission is as ridiculous as suggesting he saw it as "a disorder" by omission. I'm neither gay nor Christian myself, but from my learning it seems to me that Christ was about inclusion, tolerance, and love whenever possible. It seems to me he reserved judgement and anger for exploitation and abuse of rational ethical violations, such as banking and lending abuses, not for the kind of inflexible or arbitrary rules of conduct many fundamentalists like to interpret as Gods will without recognizing the blatant hypocrisy of assuming to know what that is while acknowledging that an omniscient creators will cannot be known by man.

Anna says:
There is a big monster, evil aliens specie kind making war against humans , very destructive behind sexual immorality and specially homosexuality, it is a demonic possession
Rob says:
@ Ben Your comment or parting shot was: "fuck religion. You respect me, I respect you. Plain and simple." I just wanted to respectfully respond to this. 1st: Do you think your words respectful? 2: Is not the "you respect me, I respect you" an establishment of law, rule, or dare I say religion however plain and simple? Jesus's ultimate interpersonal law says, "treat others the way you want to be treated." Sounds similar to your established law. No matter what we believe, say or think one should or ought to do, it is the establishment of a form of law or religion whether secular or deistic. Honestly, the only way we can avoid this is to not think. Thinking establishes that we are moral creatures with a divine spark that believes one should or ought to do something or anything for that matter. So my respectful challenge to you is, either accept your own beliefs as religious in nature or adopt a more contemplative posture towards religion and the impossibility of operating in this world without some form of it. Jesus was most angry at those who would use religious means to gain money, power, and status. Religion is in the heart of every man and God has come to free us from our impulse to control others with our own sinful tendency to do so. He established the law to end all religious law and the good news that shares that dead religion and legalism kills, but the Spirit of Christ brings conviction and life.
Guy Murphy says:
Jesus teaches us to love one another. Any teaching counter to that I personally take to be counter to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Susan says:
Your first paragraph is incorrect and your second is your interpretation. Others view it differently. I am not gay, but nor do I believe that there is enough love in this world that we should deny it to people whose choices do not match our own.
Jason Sutherland says:
First things first .. I have been gay as far back as I can remember. Secondly, I'd like to first and foremost point out that I was raised in an Assemblies of God church in the Midwest. My life has faced many obstacles regarding this subject .. challenges in which were extremely difficult to get through. I have always had a relationship with Jesus Christ, and I'd like to consider it all a very close one at that. I have grown in my spiritual walk and have come to the conclusion that God has created all people equal .. despite gender, sexuality, or even who you choose to express your love with for that matter. I truly do not believe in the whole "gay people go to hell" bit. In fact, it's extremely implausible, now that I reflect back on my journey and all that I have been through in my life - leading me to this very point. God's mercy, grace and love is forever. People should simply just be who God created them to be, quit judging others for who they are, and simply walk and live in peace. If you look around in this day and age, I truly believe that God could give a hoot about who you choose to love. In the end, it was love. Look around however. It's how we treat others with compassion and kindness that will leave the best of lasting effects for generations to come. Think! Be kind. And simply just be you. Regardless of who wants to slam me on this thread for what I believe, as well as what I have come to know .. all I know is this. God is LOVE. And NOTHING can separate you from the love of God. Research, educate others. Live in love!
George Laceby says:
“Jesus is the ultimate author of the entire Bible”, Human beings wrote the bible not Jesus Christ. Isn’t the bible nothing more than a story book?
laurie says:
Im tired of the attacks on Christ that he spoke on homosexuality. This makes Him look bad. So enough. Jesus was loving and just asked people to love one another and be kind. you homophobes are FAR from what Jesus would ever consider loving and kind. Perhaps it will be you folks some day who find yourself at his feet begging for HIS forgiveness.
E.J. Fantone says:
God loves everyone but he does not save everyone-only those who want to be saved by Him and follow his will. Saying God is love also means there are things that make him angry-
Joshua David says:
Didn't one of the disciples say it is better to not take a wife? And isn't anything we desire something we are judged for in our hearts already? So trying to not be gay would be a pointless endeavor since it's still in your heart. Now to anyone that would claim that being gay is a choice I would ask, Did you DECIDE not to be gay? Was there a time when you wanted to be gay but you decided not to? Like, you genuinely desired some penis but were like `` as much as I would enjoy sex with a dude. I'm not supposed to do that so I guess I'm going to be with a girl instead even though I think they are gross`` did that happen to you? Did you actually make that decision before? No? Being straight just came naturally to you right? Then what would make you think it's something that a person chooses? You didn't choose to be straight you just are. I didn't chose to be straight I just am. So chances are that neither did the gay guy make a choice he just is....make sense?
Mike says:
The Bible (New Testament) clearly states that divorce is a sin. Why are Christians so much more gung ho about stopping gay marriage than making divorce illegal? Maybe it’s best we don’t legislate religion at all.
Matt McDonald says:
None of the above addresses the fact that many humans are born neither male or female... either physically, or mentally. Human anatomy has all kinds of variations... apparently thanks to your creator. Read up... Google "Intersex"... or go to YouTube and search for "intersex documentary.." This is the 21st Century, and humans generally are born with a brain, which is used to LEARN... so they can live and exist. Religions are man made... and vary depending on where and when you're born. Eventually enough people question the stupidity of religions enough for science to explore and explain life on Earth. Now let's see if this blog is brave enough to publish something other than what they want you to believe.
Timothy says:
God in the beginning created man and woman and told them to marry and procreate If he intended for gay partnerships, that would have been the best time
Nobody says:
Ultimately, it sounds like Jesus never said anything one way or another about homosexuality. As a fella who preached love and acceptance for all, I doubt he would have ever had a problem with homosexuality. People who have a problem with homosexuality need to take a step back and ask themselves "how does this affect me in ANY WAY whatsoever?" I doubt you'd be able to come up with a valid answer. It doesn't affect you, and hating on someone for being gay, or being trans, or being black, or anything, is extremely unchristian. If you have a problem with any of these things, the problem lies with you, not Christ.
