Choose Purpose Over Popularity (Sermon by Arnold Deknatel, transcript in link)

"The majority of Americans believe that homosexual behavior is just an alternative lifestyle, not a sin.  The majority of Americans believe that if some high school boy decides on Tuesday that he identifies as a girl, he should be permitted to undress in the girl's locker room on Wednesday along with your daughter.  Don't think I am kidding about this.  I mention this just to illustrate that what people might be saying  can be wrong.  What they say about you can be wrong.  To listen to them can get your knickers in a bunch."

Notes

Although the church staff list includes women, the denomination policy is that "women ought not hold the authoritative teaching office in the church, that is, the office of pastor". The denomination is not listed on the church website, but it was found in the denomination's database.
