4 Things Jesus Never Said About Sexual
The following are 4 things Jesus never
said about sexual sins, along with what the Bible does say.
1. If I didn't specifically speak
against something, even though it has been specifically spoken
against everywhere else in the bible, then it must mean I am okay
with it and you can feel free to use that as an argument to live a
Jesus mainly interacted with Jews prior
to his crucifixion, so certain subjects like premarital sex and homosexuality
were not issues he would have come across. Paul, on the other hand,
dealt with Gentiles who did have these kinds of issues in their
Paul says, "Or don't you know that
the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don't be
deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor
adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor
covetous, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor extortioners, will
inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 WEB)
Yea, that includes homosexuality
and premarital sex. It's still a sin.
Jesus does say, "but I tell you
that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed
adultery with her already in his heart." (Matthew 5:28 WEB) It
would be hypocritical for Jesus to make this comment, but then say
that homosexuality and premarital sex (both sins like adultery) are
On the contrary, Jesus says that even having lustful
thoughts is sinful!
2. Your Sins are forgiven, feel free to
continue leading a sinful life.
It's more like, "From now on, sin
no more." (John 8:11 WEB)
3. Premarital sex is okay, as long as
it's between two consenting adults who love each other.
Nope, premarital sex is still a sin.
It's still sexually immoral.
4. Has no man condemned you? Then
neither do I condemn you. Now go, and do whatever makes you happy.
In John 8, a woman is accused of
adultery and is about to be stoned. Jesus says to her, "'Did no
one condemn you?' She said, 'No one, Lord.' Jesus said, 'Neither do I
condemn you. Go your way. From now on, sin no more.'" (John
Sin no more...that's definitely not the
same as go and do whatever makes you happy.
The Temptation of Sexual Sin
Paul says, "No temptation has
taken you but such as man can bear. God is faithful, who will not
allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the
temptation make also the way of escape, that you may be able to
endure it." (1 Corinthians 10:13 WEB)
James says, "Let no man say when
he is tempted, 'I am tempted by God,' for God can't be tempted with
evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each one is tempted, when he
is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. Then the lust, when it
has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, brings
forth death." (James 1:13-15 WEB)
It is important to realize that we are
tempted by our own lusts. Claiming that God made us a certain way is
the same as saying that God is tempting us.
