Sexuality: How to Live in Your Body
History: Sexual Revolution, 20th century ----- Sexuality is one of the most beautiful and destructive drives that humans experience. To look at the issue of sexuality, we will start with Paul's words to the Corinthians as he helps them to navigate between complete sexual freedom and total sexual repression. Then we'll look at the sexual revolution of the 20th century to see how sexual fulfillment has come to be seen as a personal right that is necessary to wholeness. Finally, we will ask how we as individuals and as a church can live and teach healthy attitudes about sex.
Scripture References: 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
From Series: "The Skipping Stone of the Spirit"
Following Christ is difficult in any culture. Every culture presents new challenges to following the unchanging Christ in a changing world. In this series, we will investigate what it means to follow Christ in the light of six themes that are particularly challenging in our culture. Like a stone skipping across a pond, we will start with Scripture, continue with church history, and finish in our own time, always asking what it looks like to follow Christ in the changing times of culture. Each message will begin with the foundation of Scripture, looking at what God has revealed to help us navigate these issues. We will continue our journey by looking at another time in history when this theme has been particularly significant to find out how followers of Christ in that age addressed the issue. We will complete our journey in our own culture, asking how we can follow Christ through the many questions that face us today.
