Hard Teachings of Scripture

Hard Teachings From Scripture Are Just As Important As Easy Teachings
Many believe God's commands against premarital sex and homosexuality are "hard" teachings. 

They disagree with Bible passages that define homosexuality as "unnatural" and sinful (Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-13). They disagree that sexual intimacy should be confined to marriage (Hebrews 13:4; 1 Corinthians 6:9-13).

When people think God's teachings are "hard," it's because they don't understand the wisdom, goodness, love, and purpose of God (Psalm 33:4).

In John 6:25-70, Christ talked symbolically about His death, and many of His followers said, "This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?" 

They didn't trust Christ's love or purposes, so they left Him.

Afterwards, Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, "Do you also wish to leave me?"

Our country has approved sexual immorality and our courts have protected it (Romans 1:16-32).  

And we must make a choice: to be ashamed of God's words (Luke 9:26), or to lovingly defend truth and expose darkness (Ephesians 5:11).

Christ is asking, "Do you also wish to leave me?"

How will you answer?
