I was wondering if you could tell me what people Jesus was talking about when he spoke of natural born eunuchs.
The Lord Jesus Christ spoke of three types of eunuchs in Matthew 19:12:
- Those “which were so born from their mother’s womb” (i.e. the “natural born eunuchs,” which do not possess the proper and fit sexual organs for the marriage state from conception; they are born without them, or without functional ones).
- Those which are “made eunuchs of men” (i.e. castrated men; some examples of this kind of eunuch are the prophet Daniel and his three companions, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah; see Daniel 1:1-7). [And, see today’s sermon posted later today on www.godhatesfags.com.
- And those who “[make] themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake” (i.e. they choose to be celibate willingly, like the Apostle Paul who was never married; see 1 Corinthians 7:8).
Thanks for writing.
