Ethics of Sex



Adult Bible Study

Sundays 9:15-10:15 a.m. in the Church Sanctuary

Human sexuality is a deep mystery acknowledged by the Bible, by many religions, and by science. We shouldn't take it for granted or think that we can do whatever we want with it. Sexuality can be beautiful or ugly, healthy or unhealthy, productive or unproductive. This class will examine the Biblical and natural understanding sexuality so that we might use it in the way God intended and find the blessings that God wants us to have through it.
