Sermon Series Introduction: How does a “Follower of Jesus” identify truth in a fallen world of mixed messages? The obvious answer is God’s Word and what the “Follower of Jesus” believes about it. Is it truly God’s Word?
Introduction: The Bible clearly teaches that there are times when we are to believe and live counter-culture. This would include a defense of a Biblical worldview of marriage.
The Establishment of Marriage (Genesis 2:18-24)
- To experience the deepest relationship possible on earth (Genesis 2:25)
- To provide children with a secure, loving environment in which to grow (Deuteronomy 6:1-2, Deuteronomy 6:5-7)
- To demonstrate a tangible example of His relationship with us (Ephesians 5:22-32)
The Enemies of Marriage
- The Deceiver (Genesis 3:1-8)
- The Selfish (Philippians 2:3) (Ephesians 5:33) (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a)
- Co-habitation (Hebrews 13:4)
- Homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22) (Romans 1:24-27) (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) (1 Peter 2:11)
- Divorce (Malachi 2:16a)
Application: It is important that “Followers of Jesus” know how to counter the mixed messages of our day with the truths of God’s Word. Are you able and willing to take the Word of God and stand against the secular worldview to protect your marriage and the future of your children?
A Secular Worldview of Life
I will live my life according to these beliefs
God does not exist
It is just foolish to think
That there is a God with a cosmic plan
That an all-powerful God brings redemption and healing to the pain and suffering in the world
It is a comforting thought
It is only wishful thinking
People can do as they please without eternal consequences
The idea that
I am deserving of Hell
Because of sin
Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power
"The more you have, the happier you will be."
Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose
In a world with no God
There is freedom to be who I want to be
But with God
Everything is fine
It is ridiculous to think
I am lost and in need of saving
