Noah’s sermon from 12.30.18 “Beyond the Sexual Purity Battle” includes his testimony as well as a walk through 1 Corinthians 6:12-20.
Here are two contrasting cultural beliefs for you to consider: Sex is the best thing on the planet…Heaven is full of the best things we can imagine…So if both of these things are true, why does the Bible tell us there won’t be any sex in heaven?
It’s a line often heard in well-intentioned lessons on sexual purity:God created sex. It’s His. Pornography and premarital sex are just distortions of what God made that is good: sex within marriage. Those sexual desires you feel are good, you just need to channel them into marriage. (Or as often said, “toward your wife.”) All of the above is true and I have taught most of it myself in bits and pieces. But there are some major shortfalls to this type of teaching and mindset.
We crack open the mailbag in episode 12 to answer questions about fearing God and if God is always disappointed in us.
We spend time in Matthew 3:16-17 for guidance on how to spend daily rhythm time with Jesus.
And the topic of the episode centers around knowing what The Best Thing is.
We discuss if, when, and how you should tell your wife about your porn problem. We also look at Psalm 51:1-2 as a tool for finding from Jesus what we’re looking for from sexual sin.
