Did Jesus Ever Say Anything About Homosexuality?
If homosexuality as we know it today is so evil and of such huge importance in Godís New Testament message to us, why didnít Jesus himself ever mention it even one time during His stay here on earth with us? It is my understanding that God sent his Son Jesus to earth to share with humankind His love, His very nature, His wishes, hopes, dreams and concerns for His creation. And He seemed to cover all the subjects that were important to Him while He was here. He even made a whip and drove the money-changers out of the temple which I believe is a good example of what Jesus did when the behavior of humans really bothered Him. So then why did He not ever, not once, talk about homosexuality if it is so evil? Maybe the answer is that the subject of two men or two women loving each other in a lifelong relationship just wasn't a priority to Him since He considered it covered any time he talked about love.
In his book, Living in Sin?: A Bishop Rethinks Human Sexuality, John Shelby Spong says that this "does suggest that those who consider this Ďthe most heinous siní must be terribly disturbed that our Lord appears either to have ignored it completely or to have said so little on the subject that no part of what he said was remembered or recorded." (1)
And furthermore, if homosexuality as we know it today is so evil and of such huge importance in Godís eyes why out of all the 31,173 verses in the Bible are there at most only 8 passages that even remotely deal with it. And yet the word love appears 319 times in the Old Testament and 232 times in the New Testament in the NIV Bible; so much for having our priorities in order.
