Shlemon shows how Jesus confirms, exclusively, the Old Testament view of marriage, thus leaving all other forms of sex and marriage outside the biblical view. Furthermore, Shlemon suggests that it doesn’t make sense to have mixed feelings about Christians and the church and still think Jesus is “cool” on this issue, because the traditional view… Read More →Jesus on the Definition of Marriage
