3 A huge decision for us all: Change your views to accept God’s biblical truthORChange God’s biblical truth to accept your views?
4 The plan for human sexuality begins with humans: So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.Genesis 1:27 (NLT)
5 The perfect partnership: Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” So the LORD God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him. So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep.
6 The perfect partnership: While the man slept, the LORD God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’”
7 The perfect partnership: This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.Genesis 2:18-25 (NLT)
8 The divine directives: Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it…” ground.”Genesis 1:28a (NLT)
9 Summary observations: In the beginning…God created males and females.God’s solution to man’s desire for intimacy…was woman.God instituted the concept of marriage.God designed, blessed, and even commanded married sexAND IT WAS VERY GOOD…UNTIL THE ‘FALL’
12 Why porn is a problem:“You have heard the commandment that says, ‘You must not commit adultery.’ But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. So if your eye—even your good eye —causes you to lust, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.
13 Why porn is a problem:And if your hand—even your stronger hand —causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.”Matthew 5:27-30 (NLT)
14 Sexual sins of all types are a problem: If a man commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, both the man and the woman who have committed adultery must be put to death. If a man violates his father by having sex with one of his father’s wives, both the man and the woman must be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense. If a man has sex with his daughter-in-law, both must be put to death. They have committed a perverse act and are guilty of a capital offense.
15 Sexual sins of all types are a problem: If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense. If a man marries both a woman and her mother, he has committed a wicked act. The man and both women must be burned to death to wipe out such wickedness from among you.
16 Sexual sins of all types are a problem: If a man has sex with an animal, he must be put to death, and the animal must be killed. If a woman presents herself to a male animal to have intercourse with it, she and the animal must both be put to death. You must kill both, for they are guilty of a capital offense.
17 Sexual sins of all types are a problem: If a man marries his sister, the daughter of either his father or his mother, and they have sexual relations, it is a shameful disgrace. They must be publicly cut off from the community. Since the man has violated his sister, he will be punished for his sin.Leviticus 20:10-17 (NLT)
18 Sin is is…but seriously, run from this one!Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.1 Corinthians 6:18 (NLT)
19 Sin has serious consequences: Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NLT)
20 Clearly not God’s plan for human sexuality: Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin. A man must not defile himself by having sex with an animal. And a woman must not offer herself to a male animal to have intercourse with it. This is a perverse act.Leviticus 18:22-23 (NLT)
21 What happens when we continue to reject God: So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires.
22 What happens when we continue to reject God: Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.Romans 1:24-27 (NLT)
23 Again we have to decide: Will we change the Word of God to match our perspectivesORWill we change our perspectives to match the Word of God?
24 What we were and what we can become: Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.I Corinthians 6:11 (NLT)
25 Homosexuality’s “genetic” cause – sin: Sin comes from:Our genetic inheritence –our natureAND2) Our environment/community –our nurtureBut God transforms them both!
26 What we live and believe: There is room in this church & love for EVERY type of sinner.There is hope (grace and deliverance) for EVERY type of sinner.
