Real Sex: Honored
1 Corinthians 6:12-20
The primary point of this passage is found in 1 Cor. 6:19-20
- Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit (6:19)
- Glorify God with your body (6:20)
This passage is built around three sayings the Corinthians used to rationalize their sin.
- “All things are lawful for me” (6:12)
- “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food” (6:13-17)
ONE FLESH RELATIONSHIP
PHYSICAL ONENESS: AN EXCLUSIVE SEXUAL COMMITMENT
SPIRITUAL ONENESS: GROWING TOGETHER IN YOU LOVE FOR JESUS.
EMOTIONAL ONENESS: COMMITMENT TO EXCLUSIVE FEELINGS.
MISSIONAL ONENESS: GOING IN THE SAME DIRECTION AT THE SAME TIME FOR THE SAME REASON.
- Every other sin (or every sin) a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body (6:18)
FIGHT THE NEW DRUG
This is not a Christian site. It is a researched cite with several articles about how porn affects the brain like a drug, how it affects sexual tastes—many porn consumers get aroused by things that used to disgust them, why porn causes a person to need an ever-increasing dosage, how porn kills love, how porn leaves consumers lonely, how porn fuels sex trafficking. Disclaimer: I have not read every article. You may not agree with everything written. And I am sure someone will not like the way it’s presented, or the research cited.
