Jesus blessed only one form of marriage


So, the issue of same-sex “marriage” rides on the question, “What would Jesus do?” (Frank Wessling’s editorial, April 16). That would be funny if it wasn’t so frivolous and beside the point. It’s not up to our own individual musings, nor even a collective vote. We already know exactly what Jesus did: He blessed and sanctified one and only one form of sexual union (John 2:1-11). 

If the church has told us somewhere along the line that we no longer have to follow Jesus, I must have missed it.
