God Defines Love, Sex, and Truth - We Can Trust His Definitions - 1 Corinthians 6:18

We must let God define sex truth and love, Morality
Don't be fooled by the World's definitions of Love and Sex...

Christians must speak the truth in love, but God defines truth and love. We don’t.

 In modern America:
  • 12% of the population are unmarried couples living together
  • 53% approve gay marriage
  • Pornography is more popular than ever
It's NOT Christlike to:
  • Use derogatory slang terms when describing sin and sinners
  • Treat people involved in these sins badly
  • Share God's truth in sarcastic, mean or violent ways
  • Share God's truth without a genuine concern for the sinner
But we must:
  • Know what God's Word teaches 
  • Get our values from God, not opinion polls or media
  • Speak God's truth in love when God gives us appropriate opportunities (1)
 It’s a “hate crime” to remain silent when people’s souls are at stake (1 Corinthians 6:18).

*****
A quick look at what God disapproves in sexual matters:
"we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ Ephesians 4:15 NLT
 
(1) Some people share God’s commands in arrogance, anger, and hate. This is wrong. But being ashamed of God's commands is also wrong.
(2) The Greek word used in this and several other verses is best translated "fornication" which means sex between two people who are not married to each other. This would include premarital sex and adultery.
(3) The verses about lustful thoughts apply to pornography because pornography involves unwholesome thoughts, inappropriate nude images, and glorified immorality/perversion.
There are more verses than these I've included. I encourage you to do further study in God's Word to see how clearly these sins are discussed.
