Made in a Gay Pad


Jude

Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

 

Two major themes in Jude are warnings against false teachers and warnings against apostasy. The text about Sodom needs to be considered in the light of the major themes of Jude. When one understands the history of people going to temples and having sex with male prostitutes as an act of worship to idols, one can see how same-gender sexual activities would have been seen as an act of turning away from God. A gay couple who has a loving sexual relationship is not engaging an act of worship of idols or pagan gods.

The phrase "strange flesh" is not well defined. Because the term is not defined, we are left guessing what the term actually means. According to the authors of the HarperCollins Study Bible the Sodomites attempted to have sex with angels. The John MacArthur Study Bible indicates Jude verse 6 is about angels who cohabited with women. While MacArthur believes verse 7 is about homosexuality, it could be about humans wanting to have sex with angels. Any sexual union between angels and humans could be viewed as "strange flesh."
