One verse answer (Jesus and Homosexuality)

Settling every Bible based question or studying every Bible based topic can hardly be resolved with a single verse every time, but there are times when a single verse is so clear and concise in what is being said, the point cannot be missed by any honest Bible student.

For example, take the question and topic of Jesus and homosexuality. It is often said by homosexuality advocates, especially when the advocates believe the behavior is not sinful, that Jesus never said one negative thing about homosexuality. Other than the fact that this viewpoint becomes null when one simply realizes Jesus never said anything positive about homosexuality, the fact of the matter is that Jesus’ thoughts on homosexuality can be known by simply reading John 10:30 when he said, “I and my father are one.

Jesus never directly mentioned homosexuality because the will of God had plainly been given through the Law of Moses, and Jesus endorsed the will of the Father that could be found in the scriptures – a will that said marriage and sexuality involved a man and a woman (Matthew 19:4-6) and that homosexuality was as sinful as other sexual perversions including the infidelity of married heterosexuals.

In the New Covenant, Jesus introduced a standard in regards to the use of righteous judgment when it comes to the condemnation of sin, including those of a sexual nature. This standard means we can repent and find forgiveness with God through his mercy (John 8:11); but nonetheless, a sexual sin is a sin that can and will cost us our soul, and, as John 10:30 reveals, Jesus’ viewpoint can be known about each of them.

Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4 NKJV)
