Nuptially Challenged: Challenge of Sex 2

As with anything else in life, God’s way is the best way. That’s true for sexuality, too. Our world thinks they have mastered this issue, when in reality, our world has twisted it, corrupted it, and damaged it. But God can still redeem it. God doesn’t just want to redeem your soul for eternity. He wants to redeem your life now. Your whole life. Including your sex life. But He can only redeem our sex lives if we’re willing to apply His principles instead of listening to our culture.

Nuptially Challenged: Challenge of Kids

Children are a blessing from the Lord. We honor that truth, even if our culture does not. We live in a culture that talks about unplanned or unwanted pregnancies. A culture that often views children as a hindrance, an obstacle, a problem.

The series is called Nuptially Challenged. We are going to spend 8 weeks talking about marriage. Because let’s face it…a lot of us are nuptially challenged, aren’t we?
