Glorify God with Your Body: The Christian Sexual Ethic in a Post-Christian Culture  

Scroll down for the videos of the seminar

Seminar Focus

From the earliest years of the Christian faith, the sexual ethic of Jesus followers has been a distinctive identity marker. Greco-Roman culture’s loose sexual mores were at obvious odds with the self-controlled conduct of the early disciples.  These Christ-followers consciously strove to obey the apostolic command to “glorify God with your body” (I Cor. 6:20), contending that sexual expression was reserved exclusively for monogamous heterosexual marriage.  As Christianity became dominant in the Western world, its sexual principles became the standard for regions that came under its good, yet imperfect, influence.  As a result, some of the worst exploitative practices in human history faded away in its wake.  In recent years, however, the modern West has challenged the historic Christian teaching about sexuality and now generally views it as narrow, oppressive, or even hateful.  This seminar will helped individuals and churches refresh their understanding of biblical sexuality, preparing them to answer friends, family members, and fellow believers who have rejected it.
