Untouchables – A Biblical Perspective on Four Cultural Hot Issues – Homosexuality (week 2)
Welcome to a New LifeGroup Session!
Before we jump into our study, let’s take a moment to remember that there are THREE things we want to see happen every time our LifeGroups gather:
– Movement towards Each Other
– Movement towards God
– Movement towards our Community
Our questions follow this same format. All of the questions are designed towards movement. We hope you enjoy your time together in your LifeGroup.
**Remember, our goal is to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. Use the questions that are help and skip the rest.
CURRENT SERIES: Untouchables – A Biblical Perspective on Four Cultural Hot Issues
In our Cancel Culture environment today, there is fierce opposition against any stance that is in defiance of what is viewed as acceptable norms in our godless society. However, scripture is clear that followers of Jesus do not live by the standards of this world. (1 Cor. 10:2) In light of this truth, we will look at four hot button issues from a Biblical perspective and worldview.
**OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL SESSIONS WE WILL BE DISCUSSING SEVERAL TOPICS THAT MAY HAVE VARYING OPINIONS. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL IN YOUR DISCUSSION, YOU MAY NOT KNOW EVERYONE’S STORY. REGARDLESS OF OPINIONS, THE BIBLE IS THE FINAL AUTHORITY. GRACE AND TRUTH. GRACE AND TRUTH.**

Two Weeks Ago: Memorize James 1:19 and Proverbs 16:24. Use them this week in your conversations and see what God’s Wisdom will do.
