Soma: 1 Corinthians - Divorce, Marriage, and The New Dance

Divorce, Marriage, and The New Dance

1 Corinthians 7:6-16, Matthew 19, Deuteronomy 24

How should Christians view divorce and marriage? There is no better place to start than Paul’s letter to a young church in Corinth.

What did Paul say about divorce? Well, to understand Paul requires understanding Jesus, and understanding Jesus requires understanding two well known Rabbis, but understanding those Rabbis requires understanding Moses and the Torah…

It’s about to get very “meta” in here.

Sex & Soma

1 Corinthians 6:12-7:6

Here’s the thing: sex is all around us. People talk about it, laugh about it, it’s the overarching theme in movies, books and Top 40 - it’s everywhere. And people are fine to talk about sex… until the conversation gets too serious. And then it gets awkward.

But if sex is such a big part of our lives and our culture, shouldn’t we talk about it seriously? Shouldn’t we hold some conviction? And shouldn’t God have something to say about it?

Well… considering the the length of this sermon, apparently God has quite a lot to say on it. What the Bible says about sex is shocking, radically counter-cultural, and good news for those with ears to hear it.

Also, we sort of used fake Twitter to do Q&A… it was fun.
