Jesus and Homosexuality

Piers_morganDuring the recent Duck Dynasty flap, Piers Morgan, CNN’s bombastic broadcaster from Britain, challenged Christian author and radio host Dr. Michael Brown to cite just one instance in Scripture where Jesus condemned homosexual practice.

Dr. Brown, a Messianic believer and biblical language expert, cited not one, but three instances of Jesus affirming sexual relations only between a husband and wife.

  • First, he cited Matthew 5:17, where Jesus said He came not to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it. In other words, even in Jesus’ day, the Old Testament was in force and He affirmed it, which includes condemnation of homosexual practice, in the book of Leviticus (18:22).
  • Second, Dr. Brown cited Matthew 15:19, where Jesus stated that all sexual acts committed outside of marriage defile a human being.
  • Finally, Dr. Brown cited Matthew 19:4-6 where Jesus states that marriage, as God intended, is the union of one man and one woman.

Homosexual practice is unnatural, unhealthy, and—according to Jesus—unholy.
