Here is another short take Christian worldview with David Weeden at the beginning of time. God designed two sexes in the sacred sanctified means of sexual intimacy by which a man and a woman could be unified as quote one flash and bear children within the exclusive covenant of marriage.

However, because of our corrupted sin natures men and women reject the framework of biblical marriage for sex and instead seek to gratify and worship themselves in all manner of sexual perversions and abominations, including pre-and extramarital heterosexual sex same sex, homosexuality, adult child sex bisexuality, pornography, transgender is him and much much more that one of the most effective temptations that Satan uses to destroy men and women from honoring God is through sexual immorality.

Here Satan's lie, God's restrictive expand your freedom and gratification by experiencing sex outside marriage, which only results in regret ruin, slavery, disease, discontent, divorce and God's judgment, to name a few of succumbing to sexual temptation. Here's the good news though sexual temptation as it says in first Corinthians 10 is quote common to man." God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it will start out very basically, today talking about some definitions in God's standard for sexual intimacy God standard is basically two things. Pure thoughts impure actions.

Christ said in Matthew chapter 5, he said, I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart, so Christ is taking it much beyond even the 10 Commandments says thou shall not commit adultery to even looking and lusting for a woman that's not your wife as committing adultery with her in his heart and beyond pure thoughts.

There's pure actions. Of course, Hebrews 13 for says marriage is to be held in honor among all and the marriage bed is to be undefiled for fornicators spurs the sexually immoral and idolaters, God will judge idolatry always goes with sexual immorality is a form of idolatry, worry, we worship ourselves our own desires, rather than worshiping God and of course the marriage in that particular passage in Geneva need to be mentioned but is one man one woman marriage so sexual purity are God's standard is sexual intimacy that honors God. It's intimacy within one man one woman marriage. Now to the very opposite of that is Satan's standard do whatever you want with whomever you want.

So this is sexual immorality that dishonors God that will be defined as any sexual thoughts or actions with someone that's not your wife or husband. Whether it's premarital sex or extramarital heterosexual sex same sex, homosexuality, adult child sex, bisexuality, pornography, LGBT Q transgender is all the different things that we hear so much about today, it's important to remember to talk about the definitions that God gives the gift of sexual intimacy with only one boundary nets within the confines of the boundary of marriage.
