Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 6/3/2018

Sunday’s message in the Hot Button Topics series was called Homosexuality: Caring for those who experience same-sex attraction, taken from 1 Corinthians 6:9-11. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. Show compassion
   A. We are all created in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27)
   B. We are all sinful, just in different ways (John 8:7; James 3:2)
   C. Love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:39)

II. Speak the truth
   A. Homosexual relations are unnatural (Genesis 1:27; Romans 1:26-27)
   B. Homosexual practice is sinful (Leviticus 18:22; 1 Timothy 1:8-10)
   C. Homosexual sin is forgivable (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
   D. What about marriage?
      1) Marriage is to be honored by all (Hebrews 13:4)
      2) Marriage is between a man and a woman (Matthew 19:4-5)

III. Provide supportive friendships within the church
   A. We are all family in the body of Christ (Matthew 12:49-50)
   B. Be devoted in love; practice hospitality (Romans 12:9-13)
   C. Encourage each other towards love and good works (Hebrews 10:24-25)
