Greetings In The Name of the Lord:
1 Corinthians 6:18 (NLT)
18 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.
We live in a culture that is redefining what is sexually permissible. Earlier this year in the United Kingdom, Peter and Hazelmary Bull were found guilty of discrimination because they allowed only married couples to share a bed at their small hotel. A homosexual couple sued the Bulls because they would not allow them to stay in a room with a single bed. As cultural commentator Al Mohler pointed out, what makes this case particularly troubling is the nature of the judge’s decision. Judge Andrew Rutherford ruled that the Bulls would have to sacrifice their Christian convictions if they intend to own and manage a hotel. The real bomb in the judge’s ruling was in this statement: “Whatever may have been the position in past centuries, it is no longer the case that our laws must or should automatically reflect the Judeo-Christian position.” This is a growing view all over the world. The fact is that even though the world may view the Bible as antiquated and outdated, Christians must stand firm on biblical truth. God has defined what sexual sin is, and we must not allow the world to re-define it to fit any and every perversion.
