Summary

How do Christ-followers live faithfully among the messages that our culture sends us about sexuality? In the fourth week of Uncompromised: Holding to Christian Convictions in a Cancel Culture, John Elmore shows us the key differences between biblical sexuality and cultural sexuality, and what our role is as believers in a world that conflicts with Scripture on this topic.

Key Takeaways

  • Gender fluidity has caused us to live in a world with the feminization of men and the masculinization of women.
  • Jesus came to seek and save the lost. He isn’t angry with those who are confused about their sexuality, rather, He would be pursuing them if He were here in the flesh today.
  • Those who live outside of God’s will need shepherding instead of shouting.
  • The goal is not heterosexuality; the goal is Christ.
  • Biblical sexuality is simple, life-giving, and unchanging.
  • Sex is a good gift from a good Father but using it outside of His will brings destruction.
  • Cultural sexuality is complex, life-taking, and ever-changing.
  • Our role as Christ-followers is to follow truth over trends (Ephesians 4:15a), disciple before the culture does, and be against the movement but for the person.
  • Be honest early and often.
  • Bring order to chaos.
  • No one has come to Christ through condemnation and shame, but through love.
  • Strive to be someone’s truest friend rather than their best friend.

Discussing and Applying the Sermon

  • From what sources have you developed your view of sexuality?
  • What opportunities do you have to disciple those who need to develop a biblical view of sexuality?
  • How do you interact with those around you who might not have a biblical view of sexuality, and how can you more lovingly engage them without compromising your core beliefs?
  • Who is someone far from the Lord who you could be their truest friend? What are the ways you can be their truest friend this month?
