The fact of the matter is that we live in a hedonistic and worldly culture. As Christians, we need to understand the difference between the life that we are given by God through faith in Jesus Christ and a life that is void of God. If we have our ears tuned into the world more than God’s Word, then slowly and surely we will see that our so-called Christian culture will not be distinguishable from today’s hedonistic culture. For the purpose of conciseness and focus, we will be addressing three areas of our current pleasure-seeking culture, mainly “Sex, Drugs, and Rock-N-Roll”. Thus, we are getting real about this topic, and will deal with a biblical response to today’s “Sex, Drugs, and Rock-n-roll” culture.
Sermon Description: As much as the other two issues, sex and drugs that we have addressed, can be discussed directly and concretely, the issue of media is a more elusive issue. However, in reality, it may be the most important issue to address, because it influences our mindset, and thus our decisions when it comes to sex and drugs, as well as other matters in our life (how we view what we have, how we spend our money, etc.). Our interest in various forms of media should be directed by a deep desire to know God more and live to please Him.
