We’ve all watched TV and movies where actors engage in immorality about as often as they eat dessert. After awhile, we get immune and shrug off sex outside of marriage. Not good. In Genesis one, God created male and female and gave them a commission to have children and fill the earth. So it’s very clear from the beginning that sex and children go with marriage and family. God designed sex for marriage.
We can’t allow ourselves to be duped into passivity on this topic. Many problems we face today come from separating sex from marriage and children. What kind of messages are we passing on to our offspring/the next generation? (Remember it takes one generation to lose the truth.) More than that, we need to compare and contrast cultural messages with Scripture. Stepping outside of God’s design brings unpleasant consequences.

Can we trust the Bible? Many skeptics today say we can’t because the words have been translated too many times.
The cry of the Reformation was solo scriptura, which means scripture alone. Dr. Martin Luther refuted the writings of the popes and councils, relying only on the text of the Bible as the authority in life, morals, and salvation.
For those who base their eternal destiny on the words in the Bible, this is a huge issue. I Corinthians fifteen says that if Jesus has not been raised from the dead, then our faith is in vain.
But what if the very words of the Bible came from shysters who wanted to fool innocent people? How horrible to learn we’d been duped for years. If the Bible wasn’t accurately translated, we have no hope.
