Did Jesus Address Same Sex Marriage?

Written By: Dr. Daniel Akin  |  Posted: Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

           Today it is popular among those promoting same sex marriage to say that Jesus never addressed the issue, that He was silent on the subject.  Those who affirm the historical and traditional understanding of marriage between a man and woman often are admonished to go and read more carefully the Bible.  If we do so we are told we will see that Jesus never addressed the issue.  So, the question that I want to raise is, "Is this assertion correct?"  Is it indeed the fact that Jesus never addresses the issue of same sex marriage?

            When one goes to the gospels to see exactly what Jesus did say, one will discover that He addressed very clearly both the issues of sex and marriage.  He addresses both their use and misuse.  And, as He speaks to both subjects, He makes it plain that issues of the heart are of critical importance.
