Genesis 38 - Judah - How Far Can You Run From God?




Sometimes we fail God miserably. It isn't long until we are caught in a web of our own sin where it feels impossible to break free. Sometimes we are far from God for years. Will God ever take us back after our miserable failings? As we study the life of Judah—the brother of Joseph, we see how far away from God a person can walk and still be restored by God's grace.

Genesis 24 - Marriage




In 1970, 36 percent of Americans were single. Today 50.2 percent are single. People aren't getting married. it is easier to live together, sleep together and break up when things get difficult. Sex used to be reserved for marriage. Soon it became for those who were dating. Eventually it was for friends—with benefits. Craigslist and Tinder made anonymous sex possible so people don't even need to know one another. Where did it lead? Today, 40 percent of children go to bed without a father. A third of all children are born to unwed mothers. Those are the results of dating and marriage American-style. Clearly, it is not working. In Genesis 24, as we study the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah. We study what marriage looks like God-style. We learn the right choices we need to make and the guidance God promises to provide that will make dating and marriage a success.

Genesis 19:30-38 - Daughters




Pennsylvania police say John Forehand signed up for Facebook to track a daughter he hadn’t seen in ten years. They say he was interested in a different kind of touching reunion as he sexually propositioned his 13-year-old girl. Police say he arrived fully prepared for what he thought would be a sexual encounter but what turned out to be his arrest by police. In Genesis 19, we find a similar demented scenario. Lot was incestuously raped by his own daughters so they would become pregnant and bear his children. What led Lot to such parental failure that he fathered his own grandchildren? In this study we will look at questions every father should be asking to raise their daughters to love Jesus and marry well.

Genesis 19 - Sodom




Jessa Duggar, the 22 year old reality star of the TLC series
19 Kids & Counting, took to social media with an unpopular post. She warned her fans about God’s judgment. She warned that many justify their lifestyle by believing in a loving God who doesn’t judge. She cautioned that God will not hold back judgment forever. The hours of our time on earth are ticking away. She especially warned those living in fornication, adultery and sexual sin that those who practice these sins are the very kind of people that will face hell. While her post was shocking and unpopular, it was true. In Genesis 19, we find a sample of God’s judgment for sexual sin plus his undeserved kindness to one man and his family in spite of their sin.

Song of Solomon 4:1-5:1 - Good Sex God's Way



In 1992, John Gray made a ton of money from his book,
Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Overnight he was proclaimed an instant expert on male and female differences. His book touched a chord in our culture. Men and women are wired by God to approach life differently. One of the places this is most clearly seen is in marital intimacy. At this point in the book, Solomon and his bride will finally enjoy the wedding night. We learn they approach that night differently and what makes for good sex, God's way.

Song of Solomon - God, Sex and Culture


(manuscript will post by Wednesday, January 11,2012)

When you think about the topic of sex, what comes to mind? Is it something dirty? Is it something from which to protect yourself and our children? Since this topic is so volatile, before we study the Song of Solomon, we are taking a week to learn how both the culture
and the church have twisted our understanding of sex. We cap the study off with a God centered picture of how to express our sexual identity.
