If Jesus opposed homosexual activity, why didn’t he say something against it in the Gospels?




John tells us that not everything Jesus did was recorded in the Gospels and informs us of the reason the Gospels were written: “Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:30-31).

At the end of his Gospel, John again reiterates in an exaggerated way that the Gospels do not contain everything Jesus did: “But there are also many other things which Jesus did; were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written” (John 21:25).

This being the case, it could be that Jesus did teach about the immorality of homosexual activity consistent with Old Testament teaching as well as later New Testament teaching and Sacred Tradition, but the Gospel writers didn’t record it.

    “This being the case, it could be….” Are you kidding? It could be? That’s the best answer you can provide?
    .
    It “could be” that Jesus would have reviled the idea of virgin, celibate clergy dressed in robes using shame, guilt and fear to control other people. After all his mission was against the clergy.
    .
    It “could be” that Jesus, if he truly existed masturbated on a regular basis like every other normal, healthy person.
    .
    It “could be” that Jesus would have promoted contraception if it had been available.
    .
    It “could be” that Jesus was a homosexual himself, given that it was more or less the duty of Jews to marry and have children to grow the strength of the tribe. That no mention is made of Jesus being married begs for an explanation.
    .
    In short, this is an amazingly weak and useless explanation. No wonder there’s no regular author listed!

    Jesus didn’t say anything about bestiality either. I think His audience was already aware of the different aspects of sexual immorality. He spoke in more general terms.

      I think so too! His audience was Jewish- and Jews at the time already knew the laws against sexual deviance!

    Why are you folks so angry about something that does not exist

    We hear so much about homosexuality and the Bible tell us it’s a sin. Well , so does being disobedient to your parents. But no one is stoning there children….? Is a sin a sin?
