Wrestling with sex (#sermon #podcast) March 5, 2014

This was the final sermon of our Wrestling series a couple of weekends ago. We went through a whole lot of scripture to try to understand where the Bible is coming from about sex. Paul provides us with three excellent principles for sexual ethics in 1 Corinthians 7: 1) “free[dom] from anxieties” (love of self), 2) “promot[ing] good order” (love of neighbor), 3) “unhindered devotion to the Lord” (love of God). So we looked at how these principles applied in various different scriptures, including the question of homosexuality as a concern of promoting the good order of society.
