Debunking Misinterpretation of Scripture: Jesus Never Affirmed Same-Sex Lover


In a recent quote, a misinterpretation of Matthew 8:5-6 has led to a false conclusion about Jesus affirming homosexuality. Let's examine the scripture and its context to uncover the truth.

The Greek Word "Pais"

The word "pais" (translated as "servant") indeed means "child" or "young slave." In this context, it refers to the centurion's servant, not a gay lover. The centurion, a man of authority, shows concern for his loyal servant, just like Nehemiah's relationship with the king (Nehemiah 2:1-2 NKJV).

A Call to Faithfulness

Jude 1:4 NKJV warns us about ungodly men who twist the grace of God into lewdness. The serpent's deception in the garden of Eden and Jesus' temptation in the wilderness (Matthew 4:3) remind us to stand firm in our beliefs. Apostle Paul cautions us against corrupting our minds from the simplicity that is in Christ (2 Corinthians 11:3). The Spirit expressly warns us about deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons in the latter times (1 Timothy 4:1 NKJV).


Let us remain faithful to the scripture and its context, rejecting misinterpretations that lead to false conclusions. We must stand firm against deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, holding onto the simplicity that is in Christ.
