#3 in the series "Fifty Shades Of Gender"
There is a kind of reasoning that is easily missed if all we notice is Paul's blunt, universal, creational condemnation of homosexuality. It is that, to be sure. But it is also much more. And its crucial the church gets the gist of Paul's divinely inspired thinking. Society is in a huge rush to celebrate the breaking down of creational genders. Our opening text will explain why that is so. Only God's Word can shed light on our culture's present feeding frenzy on flexible gender categories. You see, the church has gotten used to playing up to the acceptance of our culture. That's where the cool churches live. We don't like feeling the sting of our cultures distaste or hearing their accusations of intolerance or irrelevance. And we have long lost a willingness to be against anything. We've actually started to believe what they say about us - that moral absolutes are rude and true doctrines are arrogant and red-necked. Surely Jesus cant honestly expect His followers to be at odds with the philosophic life view of Miley Cyrus or Taylor Swift.
