Did Jesus support gay marriage?
Today, with all the commotion created by World Vision and their turn around promoting gay marriage, I would like to provide you with some tools to answer gay activist. I would like to share with you how some to answer to those who say that Jesus never touched the gay issue, and rather, if he would be here today, he would support it!!
Here the main claims:
“…the Bible and Jesus say many important things about love and family, [but] neither explicitly defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
Miller says other things in the article about Jesus and marriage too, like:
“Jesus himself was single and preached an indifference to earthly attachments—especially family.”
“The biblical Jesus was—in spite of recent efforts of novelists to paint him otherwise—emphatically unmarried. ”
“Jesus never mentions homosexuality, but he roundly condemns divorce (leaving a loophole in some cases for the husbands of unfaithful women).”
“Jesus reaches out to everyone, especially those on the margins, and brings the whole Christian community into his embrace. The Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit priest and author, cites the story of Jesus revealing himself to the woman at the well— no matter that she had five former husbands and a current boyfriend—as evidence of Christ’s all-encompassing love.”
Quoting James Martin – a Priest… “…if Jesus were alive today, he would reach out especially to the gays and lesbians among us, for “Jesus does not want people to be lonely and sad.”
If you want to know how to answer this outrages comments, take a look at this website, where they are brought down, totally!!!
