This Sunday, we will hear the Word of God from Leviticus 18 on “holy sexuality.” Our sexual lives are important to God. We often make two very different mistakes in this most intimate part of our lives. On the one hand, we view sexuality as a negative, unclean aspect of our lives. This is not the biblical view of the body or of intimacy. On the other hand, we view sexuality as an appetite that must be satisfied or the essential way to define our identity. This is a dangerous view of self that leads to disappointment. We will explore the rich biblical counsel of Leviticus 18 as God’s wisdom for a holy sexuality. God’s people are taught not to imitate the society around us lest we self-destruct. This is one of the key Scriptural passages that help us navigate the context and implications of our current cultural debate on homosexuality.
