Lust is a problem. A big problem. Our sexualised culture, promising freedom and pleasure, is creating a terrible cocktail of abuse, pain, despair, and suffering. The problem is not simply our actions, but our sinful desires. But there is hope. Christ is more powerful than any lustful desire, any temptation. He has defeated death and sin, and his way leads to true freedom.
People all around us are seeking wholeness and happiness and acceptance. These are good things to seek. But if we seek them in the wrong places, we will surely reap calamity. This is just what’s happening today regarding the LGBTQ movement. People are being told that if they follow their heart, their deepest instincts and desires, they’ll be whole and happy and affirmed. But this is not true. Gavin Peacock and Owen Strachan delve into what God’s Word says about gender identity and transgenderism.
God made sexuality. It is a gift and stewardship from God. But there is much more to human identity than sexuality. We were made for eternity, where the church will be married to Christ. Let us look at the words of God about homosexuality and run straight into the arms of Christ, the Savior who welcomes repentant sinners of every kind to a kingdom not built with man’s strength, but with the very power and grace of God.
