“But among you there must not be even a HINT of sexual immorality..." (Ephesians 5:3)
Purity matters. We fight for pure water and clean air, but there's one area where we generally don't seem as concerned about purity - that is SEXUAL PURITY.
In Part 5 of Spiritual Sweat II, we tackle the sensitive topic of sexual purity and look at it from God's perspective. We'll see that sexual purity is a lot more important than we may realized and the consequences of disobedience in this area, are greater than you may have thought.Read More

Mainstream media has long been pushing to normalize and romanticize pornography and sexual addiction and make it a part of everyday life.

Get ready ladies and gentlemen...it's time for "THE TALK." Yep, you know what this talk is all about. It's the talk that you never had with your mom or your dad. It's the talk you are avoiding having with your kids as well. It's the talk that you DEFINITELY never heard in church before...until today!
In this week's message, Deacon Michael Guirguis is back to share something you may not have known about sex and your sexuality. It's a message that goes against everything culture teaches today.
Culture teaches that sex is just physical, but God teaches that it's so much more than that.
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Matthew 5:27-28
What is God's standard for sexuality? How does He view sex? Is sex bad/wrong as many of us were brought up to believe? Or is it "no big deal" as society around us seems to suggest? Is it really possible to live in 2014 and beyond with the kind of a standard that Jesus speaks about above?
There is no area in life where God's standards and the world's standards seem to conflict MORE than when it comes to sex and our sexuality. It's time for us - the children of God - to return to a proper understanding of sex and a godly standard for our sexuality.
Find out how by watching this week's message, "Adultery of the Heart" - Part 2 in our latest series at The Well, God's Ethics: Realigning Your Moral Compass.
