I. INTRODUCTION

A. TODAY'S SUBJECT:

1. REFERENCED OVER 400 TIMES IN THE BIBLE.

2. CONSTITUTES ONE OF THE GREATEST STRUGGLES KNOWN TO
MAN.

3. CAUSES PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, RELATIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL
PROBLEMS FOR THOUSANDS TODAY.

4. BEING TALKED ABOUT IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES WITH THE
WRONG CONCLUSION.

5. BEING IGNORED BY MANY WHO SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT IT.

B. THE SUBJECT IS SEXUAL PURITY.

1. THERE IS A MORAL FAMINE IN THE LAND TODAY.

2. THIS FAMINE HAS INVADED THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY.

C. TODAY WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT SEXUAL PURITY OPENLY
AND SCRIPTURALLY.

1. THERE ARE MANY PASSAGES DEALING WITH THE ISSUE BOTH
IN THE NEW TESTAMENT AND THE OLD TESTAMENT.

2. TODAY'S PASSAGE COMES FROM I CORINTHIANS 6:15-20.

D. WE WILL DEAL WITH:

1. THE PERCEPTION.

2. THE PROBLEM.

3. THE PREVENTION.

4. THE PROMISE.

II. THE PERCEPTION

A. THE DARK AGES:

1. SEX IS DIRTY AND UGLY AND NEVER TO BE MENTIONED.

2. GOD CREATED US, BUT OUR SEXUALITY IS NOT FROM HIM.

B. THE AGE OF PERMISSIVENESS.

1. TODAY, THE ATTITUDE IS FAR DIFFERENT.

2. THE PENDULUM HAS SWUNG THE OTHER WAY.

3. NOW, THERE ARE FOR MANY, NO PARAMETERS.

a. ANYTHING BETWEEN TWO CONSENTING ADULTS NO MATTER
THEIR RELATIONSHIP SHOULD BE OK.

b. THE ATTITUDE IS "A PERSON'S PRIVATE LIFE DOESN'T
REALLY MATTER."

c. THIS ATTITUDE HAS CAUSED MANY PROBLEMS FOR WHICH WE
ARE REAPING THE CONSEQUENCES TODAY.

C. GOD'S VIEWPOINT.

1. GOD DOES NOT CONDEMN SEXUALITY NOR DOES HE CONDONE
SEXUAL PERMISSIVENESS.

2. GOD'S VIEWPOINT OF EXPRESSED SEXUALITY COMES IN THE
CONTEXT OF MARRIAGE.

3. HEBREWS 13:4 SUMMARIZES BEAUTIFULLY GOD'S PLAN FOR
SEXUAL EXPRESSION. MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE IN ALL, AND THE
BED UNDEFILED."

4. I CORINTHIANS 6 EXPLAINS THE IMPORTANT OF SEXUAL
PURITY.

III. THE PROBLEM. IT IS A TWO FOLD PROBLEM WE WILL
DISCUSS TODAY.
