Did Jesus Really Say Nothing About Homosexuality?by Jim Barringer
Unless you've either taken a vow of silence or have never ventured outside the house, you've probably had a talk with a non-Christian about the way we view sexuality. Sooner or later in the course of these discussions, someone will inevitably trot out the line, "Jesus said nothing about homosexuality," the implication being that if he said nothing about an issue, you can do whatever you please. So let's deconstruct that statement in three parts. First, we're going to look at what Jesus actually taught regarding gender and sexuality. Second, we're going to look at the reasons why "Jesus said nothing" is bad logic. Third, we're going to examine the pattern of Jesus' moral teaching to try and answer the question of why he said nothing about this issue.

God's Plan A and Plan B for Humanityby Max Aplin
Deeply ingrained within all of us is a sense that just punishment and mercy are good things. The Bible portrays God justly punishing people and also showing mercy to people, and it is not a surprise that a good God would act in these ways. When God punishes, he does so with regrets, but when he shows mercy, he has no regrets.
Are the Old Testament and New Testament Portraits of God Contradictory?by Max Aplin
There are many who say that in the Old Testament God is portrayed as a God of judgement and in the New Testament as a God of love, and that these portraits are contradictory. In fact, in both the OT and the NT God is portrayed on the one hand as a God of love, mercy and kindness, and on the other hand as a God of judgement and punishment. God's mercy is not inconsistent with his punishing.
