Questions Part 3  (Sermon by Michael Fletcher). Listen started 22:53.

“Genesis chapter 1 verse 27: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."

It doesn’t say male and female and 'I’m not quite sure.' So there are two genders: male and female. Not male 'and I think female.' Not female 'and I think male.' … Now gender confusion is not uncommon in adolescent and pre-adolescent children. While the hormones are rushing through their bodies, they can get confusing signals—they don’t know how to interpret them. If they never act out these urges, then it’s not sin."

Questions Part 4 (Sermon by Michael Fletcher). Listen starting 24:50.

"The Greek word for 'marital unfaithfulness' is porneia. Porneia means illicit sexual intercourse. It includes adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, perversion of a variety of sorts."
