“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications (includes homosexuality), thefts, false witness, blasphemies: 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.” Matthew 15:19-20

Jesus used the word “fornication” 3 times. “Fornication” includes, involves every single or the many specific forms of sexual deviancy. Bestiality, adultery, necrophilia, and incest are forms of fornication, sinful sexual deviancy. See sexual laws in Leviticus 18.

The Bible records 6 times that Jesus uses the sin and word “sodom” which was destroyed for homosexuality (Matthew 10:15; 11:23; 11:24; Mark 6:11; Luke 10:12; 17:29).

We’ve heard people say that God’s Word, the Bible, doesn’t record any words of Jesus about homosexuality, and therefore they conclude that it must be acceptable to God. Yet, the Bible does not record sayings of Jesus about a number of other specific sins either. To suggest that Jesus approved of homosexuality simply because He did not use the term “homosexual,” or “sodomite”, is to imply that He approved of necrophilia, pedophilia, incest, and bestiality. Of course, we know better.

Jesus used the word “fornication” which includes ALL forms of deviant sexual behavior – anything outside of a man and woman in holy matrimony.

“Male and female”

“And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female
Mat 19:5  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 
Mat 19:6  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” Matthew 19:4-6

“Marriage (man and woman only/male and female) is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers (all deviants) God will judge.” Hebrews 13:4

The only sex God sanctions, blesses, approves of, and will not judge is that between a male and female who are married in His holy eyes.

The whole counsel of Scripture is where we derive sound doctrine – not matter who the human writer (2 Peter 1:20-21) It simply doesn’t matter if Jesus or Moses or David or Paul or John or Peter said it because of the canon of Holy Scripture we read that “ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Timothy 3:16)
