A total of 31,233 verses exist in modern-day translations of the Bible. Of the verses attributed to Jesus, He never addressed the topic of homosexuality in any of them.
Only a scant 15 Bible verses purportedly touch on the subject of homosexuality, according to renown Baptist theologian Dr. David P. Gushee.
In fact, Romans 1 makes the only unequivocal reference to homosexuality in the Bible. Cryptographer Michael Wood studied the Apostle Paul’s mention of the subject in Greek, and said Paul makes clear in his passage—despite modern translations to the contrary—that homosexuality doesn’t prevent a person from entering heaven.
Wood, Gushee and Dr. John Boswell all concur that other Bible verses—which many people interpret to condemn homosexuality—are modern mistranslations of the original texts and instead denounce selfishness, unloving and unjust activities.
Boswell is the author of “Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality”.
Jimmy Carter on Jesus’ Teachings
President Jimmy Carter perhaps said it best: “Homosexuality was well-known in the ancient world well before Christ was born, and Jesus never said a word about homosexuality.”
“In all of His teachings about multiple things, He (Jesus) never said that gay people should be condemned,” Carter added.
