Sorry, Elton John, Jesus Would Not Support ‘Gay Marriage’

avatar

As Elton John continues preparing for his own gay wedding, he’s speaking loudly about Christ’s views in the cultural debate that is leading even some mainline Protestant denomination leaders to defy the Word of God: gay marriage.

The Grammy-winning artist told Sky News‘ Dermot Murnaghan about his plans for a quiet wedding with his partner David Furnish, his feelings about Pope Francis (he thinks the pontiff is “wonderful”), and that he plans to talk with Russian President Vladmir Putin about gay rights in November.

As John sees it, gay clergy should be allowed to marry and celibacy for Catholic priests should be done away with. But the biggest bombshell comment was what Sir Elton, as many now know him, said about Jesus Christ’s views on gay marriage.

“If Jesus Christ was alive today, I cannot see him, as the Christian person that He was and the great person that He was, saying this could not happen,” John told Sky News. “He was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring people together and that’s what the church should be about.”

John got it halfway right. Jesus is loving, compassionate and forgiving. But Jesus would not support gay marriage today, He didn’t support it when He walked the earth and He’s not going to change His mind no matter how many denominations reject His truth. He’s the same today, yesterday and forever (Heb. 13:8).

Many gay rights advocates argue that Jesus did not say anything about gay marriage. Besides the fact that Scripture, which is breathed by God, forbids homosexuality and many other sins (see 1 Cor. 6:9), Jesus did make the design for marriage clear when he told the Pharisees:

“Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate” (Matt. 19:4-6). And that, Sir Elton, settles it.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
