While titled “The Bible on Manhood and Womanhood,” this page is broader in that it has links on character, sexuality, marriage, divorce, and remariage.
It’s important to remember that sin, all sin, is abhorred by God. While there are many definitions of sin, I am drawn to the one by Dr. Frank Kemper, former professor of Pastoral Care at Claremont School of Theology:
“Sin is any form of human self expression that disaffirms
the infinite worth of myself or of my neighbor.”
We were created in the image of God, and therefore are of infinite worth. One of our bible studies here at Orcutt Christian Church was “What The Bible Says About Sin,” which can be downloaded here, and is a penetrating study on what constitutes sin.
One of the areas of sin that is definitely tied to the concept of “worth,” is how do men and women treat each other? How do we express our sexuality?
