JESUS IS THE MORAL AUTHORITY OVER SEX & MARRIAGE- Tonight at Crossfire, Pastor Paris Ragan reads Matthew 5:17-20 & 28-32 & 48. The law gave rules and regulations on how to live. Jesus gives power to obey these rules, and goes a step further by changing the desires of the heart. Our standard of righteousness is no longer trying to keep the Mosaic Law or the manmade laws of the good people around us; instead, our standard is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Pastor Paris gives an analogy of how our sinful actions before marriage can affect the marriage relationship God has designed for us. Laying sexual bondages at the Cross is sometimes violent and is a decision that must be made to live out a victorious Christian life.
