On March 19, I kicked off a sermon series at my church, Redemption City Church, called “Sex Matters.” This series is our brief attempt at helping Christians understand God’s plan for sex and sexuality.
Titled “Sex Matters: Why Our Bodies Matter to God,” I preached specifically about what the Bible teaches about homosexuality and gender identity conflicts related to transgenderism. You might ask yourself: Why talk about homosexuality and gender identity issues under the category of sex?
Because both issues speak to fundamental questions: Who is man? Who is woman? And how did God make us and what does he expect of us in how he made us?
These are very complicated issues in our culture, but I hope the message you find below is one that is both compassionate and convictional.
