Dr. Bruce Northam - Senior Pastor
As we have seen, most of the idols in the temple of pleasure are God designed good things, perverted and elevated to a position they were never meant hold. God’s designed gifts usually have several purposes and are pleasurable. Tragically God’s gifts often end up becoming God’s greatest competition. It happens when the gift becomes more important to us than the giver. When God’s gifts become our gods, then the gods become tyrants and we become enslaved, and they become destructive instead of the blessing they were designed to be. This morning we will examine the god of sex who like the other gods in the temple of pleasure, promise satisfaction and fulfillment, but lead to death…the death of dreams…the death of joy…the death of relationships.
