Matthew 5:27-30

In this passage Jesus addresses the matter of sex and sexual sin the consequences of sexual sin. Contrary to what many may believe, God is not against sex - he created sex and in its right context, it is a marvelous gift. What Jesus' words reveal is that sex, if not handled as God intends, will destroy lives, and that those in whom the gospel has taken root will be men and women who take drastic steps to root sexual sin out of their lives and seek to honour God in the area of their sexuality.
