Human beings are inherently sexual creatures, created male and female, in the image of God. It should not surprise us, then, that revolt against God is expressed in decidedly sexual ways.
The kingdom of God is a common culture of Christ that reflects the scriptural understanding of human persons in their earthly existence as image- and office-bearers. When clergy reject the plain teaching of Scripture on human sexuality, they presume upon their position in the kingdom of God.
When the church chooses to follow the changing tides of culture, rather than hold forth the unchanging Word of truth, it sows the seeds of its own destruction.
Our broad thinking of life doesn’t just shape our view of human sexuality. Our view of human sexuality shapes the rest of our thinking. This book is about why the Western sexual worldview has changed, how injurious it has been to our culture, and what Christians can do to reverse it.
In this lecture, Dr Boot shows how modern political liberalism no longer seeks justification or legitimisation for its vision of justice and morality in anything other than an evolving social contract. As a result sexual morality has been politicized and immorality and vice are rationalized by declaring immorality to be moral, injustice to be the new justice, and sin to be a human right.
