"Does Your Biology Match Your Theology?
I Corinthians 6:13-30
Have you ever said to your child, or been out with a group
of folks and somebody said, "Shh! Here comes the preacher!"? I

every possible need that man would have by principle in His scripture.
He has also been very explicit. One of the areas He is very explicit
about, is out sexual behavior. I would like to deal with that from
the Word of God about keeping your bodies as a vehicle for Christ
and not a tool of the devil.
Let's begin first of all by looking at four great biblical facts
