One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. The Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?"
He answered, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions."
Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."
The principle here is that the Law (regarding the sabbath) was created as a benefit for mankind (we need a day off every week!) but the legalists had taken that to the nth degree such that it wasn't a benefit anymore, in fact it became a burden. By sticking to the letter of the law, the pharisees had entirely missed the spirit of the law.
I know most orthodox, conservative and evangelical believers will automatically claim that the principle doesn't apply. That sabbath observance is one thing, but sex is entirely another. But I just want to ask "Why?"
Can someone please explain to me why this principle doesn't work here?
If Jesus (not the written law) is Lord over sex, if someone has their relationship with Him right, then everything else should fall into place. If it happens to fall into the place of a loving, committed, faithful, homosexual relationship, where is the problem?
