We live in a time of great change in some core moral beliefs in North America.
For example, Barna research has documented that over 40 percent of self-described practicing Christians now believe that it is a good idea for people to live together before they are married (cohabitation).
One of our 10 disciple making affirmations at Discipleship.org is that the Bible is the authoritative, reliable, and ultimate standard for discipleship and life (2 Tim. 3:16-4:2).
So, when the Bible clearly teaches that sexual immorality is sinful, we stand, as disciple makers, with the Bible. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 states it succinctly: “Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Teachings like this are hard teachings to believe and uphold in our day.
The best way to do it is by Jesus style disciple making. Let me explain.
