What Did
The Risen
Lord Jesus Christ
Say About
Homosexuality?

In August of 2003 the Episcopal Church made church history by ordaining as a Bishop a practicing, openly confessed homosexual man. FOX News interviewed two leaders of the Episcopal Church, who were greatly in favor of the action. During the interview they were asked, "What do you believe about the Bible's teachings on the subject of homosexuality?" The response was that "Jesus never said anything about homosexuality." Therefore, the inference was that since Jesus was silent about the subject, homosexuality must not be on the "list" of sins that we are to avoid. The interviewer being Biblically illiterate, as are most reporters, bypassed the statement and went on to ask some other inane questions. Since no one seems willing to answer the question, I thought that I would through the means of this tract.

Over the last few years Episcopalians, when questioned about the validity of ordaining an openly practicing homosexual (Sodomite in God's terminology), defend Robinson with the idea that we need to be tolerant and respectful of others opinions and practices. These are the same folks who are intolerant and totally disrespectful of our beliefs. In April 1996, Scott Southworth was virtually shouted down by a mob of sodomites chanting various epithets against his attempt to articulate his Biblical beliefs that sodomy is wrong and eventually the church service was invaded by hooligans shouting such 'tolerant' things such as, "2-4-6-8, we don't want your Christian hate." In many other incidents Christians have had their lives threatened, and churches have had their property destroyed by hate mongering sodomites. It is quite clear that tolerance and respect are not part of their stand against those who would uphold Biblical standards of morality.

However, the reason for this tract is to examine what Jesus Christ had to say about the subject of homosexuality. In order to properly do this we must first of all examine who is Jesus Christ. The only historical record to be trusted about the Lord Jesus is the Bible. Man's opinions about Him change from year to year. So in order to properly examine this subject we must turn to the Holy Bible. What does the absolutely perfect, totally trustworthy Bible say about Jesus Christ?

To summarize these three Scriptures that are totally compatible with the rest of the Bible, we see that the Word was God was in the beginning with God, and that Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. The Word is one with God so that God the Word and God the Son are the same. Jesus Christ Himself declared by His words and His works that He was "God manifest in the flesh."

So by His words and by His works He testified that He was God manifest in the flesh.
1Timothy 3:16 - "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." If your Bible doesn't read like that get a real Bible - the KJV.

The testimony of His disciples and other believers over the centuries, even unto death, has always been that Jesus Christ the Lord was and ever shall be God manifest in the flesh. Not only do His words and works declare that He is God, His attributes testify that He is God. Only God has these attributes:

In view of the incontrovertible facts that Jesus Christ possesses these five divine attributes of God, He is God, and since God does not change, anything that God has said is what Jesus has said. Therefore, whatever God has said about sodomy and other unnatural sexual relations between a man and a man or between a woman and a woman, Jesus has said the same thing. Ergo, Episcopal Bishop Robinson is not only a sodomite; he is grossly in error when he says that Jesus Christ is silent on the subject of sodomy. God the Son, God the Father and God the Holy Spirit has (note the singular verb) much to say on this subject.

Jesus said,

It is quite apparent that the Godhead, God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus had much to say about the sin of homosexuality. Therefore, anyone who is practicing such a sin is not following the tenants of the Bible, or the teachings of Jesus Christ the Lord. Episcopal Bishop Robinson is not qualified to be a leader of a church, nor should he be looked upon as someone who has any qualifications to expound the Scriptures. He is living in sin, and Jesus Christ soundly rebukes religious leaders who dare to openly repudiate the Scriptures and live in sin.

Bishop Robison's only hope, as is the only hope of any sodomite, is to repent of his sins, trust Jesus Christ as Saviour and be born again. That is the only hope of all of us. Have you been born again? If not, trust Jesus Christ today before it is too late.

John 5: 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Webmaster's note: Jesus died that all may be saved including homosexuals, God hates sin but loves sinners. Please understand every true Christian desires that every unsaved person avail themselves of the gift of eternal life.
