Adam Hamilton Sermon Series

I just watched Adam Hamilton's sermon entitled "Sex in the City" as part of his "What's Love Got to Do With It?" sermon series. I highly recommend taking the time to watch this. It is approximately 43 minutes, but worth every bit. Parents, it would be good to encourage your teenagers, or even pre-teens to watch this.

Sex permeates our culture in television, internet and movies and many Christians feel the way to combat this, is to avoid it; however, it is in our daily lives as well. We tend to not teach our kids anything or simply to avoid all issues thinking that will be a quick fix, but it seems to create more of a problem as things that are taboo are often the most desirable. On the other hand, we sometimes are too permissive with our attitudes. Adam address the issue of sex in a beautiful and biblical way.

He also chases a "rabbit trail" on dealing with sin in the church. We all know of things that go on in people's lives and it is generally handled in church settings in one of two ways - gossip or ignoring. Both are wrong and harmful. I believe he gives an excellent response to dealing with the issue of immorality in the church with the love of God.

Don't miss how sex is like duct tape!
