Introduction - Some frightening statistics
The sex industry is a 14 BILLION DOLLAR a year industry, more than the NFL, MLB, and NBA COMBINED!!!
90% of teens and 96% of young adults (18-24) are either encouraging, accepting, or neutral when they talk about porn with their friends. Only 55% of adults 25+ said they believe pornography is harmful and wrong.
A majority of teens and young adults believe that not recycling is worse than viewing pornography.
Nearly 27% of teens have received “sexts” and 15% are regularly sending them. 57% of teens search out pornography at least monthly.
51% of male students and 32% of females surveyed reported having first viewed pornography before they were 13 years old.
We live in a sex crazed world very much like the 1st century world of Corinth that Paul writes to. He offers us some suggestions on how we can combat this harmful cultural norm.
1 Corinthians 5:1–13 NKJV
1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles—that a man has his father’s wife! 2 And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you. 3 For I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed. 4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5 deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 6 Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7 Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 9 I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. 10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person. 12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”

God expects His people to be HOLY

Our holiness is reflected in our COMPANY

Constantly be on guard and purge sin from your life

Call brothers and sisters to repentance, and the lost to new life
