The Bible has very clear views on how we as the church should approach sex and money. Will we be able to live up to this standard in such a pagan world?

The Church Meets Sex And Money

The Holy Spirit lives within us and every time we sin, whether the sin of greed or sex what do we do? We grieve the Holy Spirit that lives within us.

“Our ways of living must really be different from the world around us. Because of what we are, and what we have become to believe, we must have a specific way of living. We are to live as a Christian. We are to live a Christian life which is opposed to the pagan life around us. We shouldn’t be conformed to the world around us although we still live in this world- in this pagan world. Remember, we are God’s new society, we are precious to him.”
