    So, Jesus not having mentioned homosexuality was not an inadvertent omission, but was a part of the divine plan. What does that tell you about the subject that started this thread?

    Actually that is a pretty big spin. The Bible also says that not all of Jesus quotes were recorded. That being said, he did not have to list every sin in his words, it was not necessary seeing as it is in other passages clearly.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Excellent.
    So, anyone can attribute to Jesus anything that he wishes he had said. Jesus said it, but it wasn't recorded in the Bible, but it still is divine truth.

    How can anyone possibly argue against logic like that?

    In your opinion. And that isn't possible if you believe in free will. It contradicts free will completely.

    Also not what I said.

    Yes, it does. You cannot say that God ensured that everything in the Bible was inspired by Him, unless you take away free will from those who wrote, translated, edited, and put together the Bible.

    Unless by inspired you mean told them what to write.

    No, even "inspired". You cannot prove that they were "inspired" by God and that none of their own ideas entered the Bible or their own interpretations or biases went into it as long as you believe in free will.

    And if their free will was to choose to write what God told them to?
