Angels and Animals

by Johnson Bowie
God’s original design for the gift of sex didn’t include pornography, but the enemy loves to take what God intended for good and use it for evil.
Sermon Notes

1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 NLT
God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin.
Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness
and honor—not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know
God and his ways. Never harm or cheat a fellow believer in this
matter by violating his wife, for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we
have solemnly warned you before. God has called us to live holy
lives, not impure lives. Therefore, anyone who refuses to live by
these rules is not disobeying human teaching but is rejecting God,
who gives his Holy Spirit to you.
Matthew 19:8 NIV
“… it was not this way from the beginning.”
God’s ORIGINAL INTENT for SEX didn’t include PORN.
• More than 50% of those engaged in online porn lost interest in
sexual intercourse. 1/3 of their partners lost interest as well.
• Porn use increases marital infidelity by more than 300%.
• Sexual addicts are 23x more likely than others to state that:
“Discovering online sexual material was the worst thing that
ever happened in my life.”
If porn is an ESCAPE, then why doesn’t it ever lead you to
Porn isn’t just an individual moral problem. Porn strikes at the heart
of what it means to be human.
Angels & Animals
We are not ANIMALS.
Angels & Animals
We are not ANGELS.
Angels & Animals
We are HUMANS, made in the Image of God.
Genesis 1:27 NIV
So God created mankind in his own image, in the IMAGE OF
GOD he created them; male and female he created them.
How I treat the CREATION reflects how I feel about the CREATOR.
1 John 4:20 NIV
For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have
seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.
Ephesians 1:4 NLT
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ
to be holy and without fault in his eyes.
Psalm 139:13-14 NIV
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my
mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made …
John 3:16 NIV
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that
whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
