What Did Jesus Say About...

This is when a Facebook post becomes a blog post. I decided after posting this on Facebook this morning that I needed to post it somewhere more permanent.

It upsets me that if you type "What did Jesus say" into Google the first thing to come up is "about homosexuality?" He didn't say anything. All four gospels, not one word from Jesus on homosexuality. 

However he did say "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” (Mark 10:21-22) Jesus was much more concerned with whether or not we were spiritually healthy, cared for those less fortunate and treated each other with kindness. He made it abundantly clear that it is not our job to judge those around us for their actions, but simply to love. 

"Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law." (Romans 13:1)
