As the weed of secularization continues spreading its roots through the belly of western civilization, Christians must be active and vocal when discerning the damaging effects on our societys sexual ethic. Confused, disoriented, and unable to draw a straight line between wrong and right our cultures moral compass is spinning out of control. 2017 granted us no shortage of examples to demonstrate that society is altogether ignoring scriptures warnings about licentious sexual behavior. Undeniably, we are drunk and lost at sea in a ship named Moral Relativism.
Moral relativism, collateral damage from secularization and postmodernism, looks past Christianitys objectivism and appeals to the culture to govern its morality and sexuality. It fantasizes were more informed than our prude religious ancestors. Empirically, weve grown and evolved into a superior version of our species. Add to that a growing list of gender and sexual orientations and even science is now unable to accurately define someones sexuality. The metaphorical doors of the sexual revolution are open wide enough for almost anyone to fit inside except Jesus.
The exclusivity of Jesus sexual ethics and person stands in stark contrast to the inclusivity of the sexual and moral revolutions. Jesus requires holiness and warns of judgement for anything less. Many liberal Christian denominations are rejecting the demands Jesus puts on His church in the name of love and inclusivity. Nevertheless, the only objective source (holy scripture) by which we can understand Christs message on sexuality is clear: sex is reserved for the marriage bed and only to be between a man and woman. Without exclusivity in our sexuality and morality, we risk misrepresenting the gospel and the person of Jesus. It is the duty of the church to preach this truth boldly in the darkness.

Yeshua is a wave that is taking over the world.
Long but a good read.
Thanks for posting this.
I wish we could come up with a new name for the homosexual rainbow flag. Can’t find any good prefixes using six now for the number of stripes. I swear I found sex as a suffix for six once. Homosexuals would probably love it if we called their flag the sexbow flag.
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
Yeah; it'll be FIRE! next time!!
New International Version
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
