Have Christians Become Gospelphobes?

Are Christians holding fast to God's commands or have we become "Gospelphobes"?

Before going through this study, please read the 1-minute introduction Are You a Gospelphobe? It explains our need to hold fast to God's principles and commands about sexual behavior.

Christians must not be shamed or pressured into conformity because sexual sins are especially damaging to people, families, and communities.

Bible Study

Are Christians holding fast to God's commands or have we become "Gospelphobes"?
1. Our attitude toward God's Word - both the easy parts and the hard parts - is an indication of our devotion to Christ.

Mark 8:38: For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in His Father's glory with the holy angels. 

2. There are times when sharing God's Word is easy and times when it's difficult.

2 Timothy 4:1-2: In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 

3. The prevalent attitude of people today is not unlike that in the time of judges: people did what they decided was right.

Judges 17:6: In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit. 

4. This is a good passage to memorize and remember whenever we feel pressured to bend to the views of culture.

Romans 1:16: "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile."
