At the intersection of church life and secular culture there is an ongoing discussion regarding sexual identity, human and civil rights, the definition of marriage, and how we understand what is moral and what is immoral. Since the June 26, 2015, Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage in all 50 states, people of faith are examining once again what we believe, and why.

Homosexuality is in the spotlight with regard to all of these questions, both inside and outside of the church.

Today's message is meant to clarify what the Bible has to say regarding homosexuality, and in light of God's Word to us, how we ought to live and respond as followers of Jesus Christ.
