Non-sequitur. From Latin which literally means, “does not follow.” It’s a logical fallacy where one argues that “If A, then B must follow.” Sometimes, A does lead to B. For instance, if you jump off a 10-story building, you will fall and get seriously injured. It is possible to escape this outcome, but it is highly unlikely. This makes sense and is demonstrably true.
People like to argue that Jesus never mentioned the topic of homosexuality. The implied logic is that since Jesus never mentioned a specific topic, it must not be morally significant. Here are a couple of such examples:
This is easy to refute because there are an infinite amount of topics that Jesus didn’t address. No one would claim that since Jesus never mentioned pedophilia, it must not be a big deal. This is an example of non-sequitur logic. In order to determine if an action is sin, we examine the entirety of Scripture–not just Jesus’ actual words while he briefly walked the earth.
