“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Matthew 18:6Yes, there are a few verses in the Bible that express condemnation of homosexuality. There are other verses too, all of which can be easily cherry-picked to make a point. Take for example the verse above, which speaks to me of people who teach young children to hate, like Pastor Jeff (see previous print). These words were said to have been spoken by Jesus after he drew a child to himself and told his disciples that they must become like children to enter the kingdom of heaven. In this passage he says that stumbling blocks to faith will happen, but “woe to the person through whom they come.”
On a technical note, this print was made with three simple blocks, shown below.
Sometimes I enjoy a break from doing a lot of intense carving.
