Take 5: A Christian Point of View

Stuart and Jill Briscoe

Tolerance of all beliefs and acceptance of all lifestyles is becoming the norm, and God’s values are viewed as antiquated, if not with derision and scorn, by many in our society. There’s strong pressure on Christians to reject their own beliefs in order to get along with others.

How do you form genuine relationships in the hopes of winning others to Christ, but also remain set apart and holy, so you can stand firm against godless attitudes and activities that surround you? How can you, in practical terms, be “in the world, but not of the world”?

Stuart and Jill tackle these questions and offer a Christian point of view on five hotly debated issues:

  • Sex
  • Women
  • Politics
  • Environment
  • Money

Messages From This Series:

If we want to think seriously about living as Christians in this world, we have to address the issue of sex. What Scripture teaches and what our society accepts as normal aren't even close. 

In this message, Stuart begins in Genesis and shares what God, the inventor of sex, has to say on the subject. And it's more complex than you might think. The question becomes: Will we as believers embrace God's purposeful and strategic design for sex, or continue to pursue worldly sexual pleasure?

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6:12-6:20

A woman's identity is revealed in Creation, obscured by the Fall, but renewed in Redemption.

What does that say about her role in the home, family, church, and workplace? Jill offers a Christian point of view on this hotly debated issue.

Scripture: Genesis 1-3

The world in which Christians are called to live is clearly political. Politics affect Christians, but how should Christians view politics?

Scripture: Romans 13:1-13:7

The world in which Christians live includes the environment in which they physically exist. Until recently many believers have shown little concern for the environment, although others have shown considerable interest. How should we view it?

Scripture: Romans 8:18-8:27

Everybody has an interest in money. But attitudes to it differ widely. Paul wrote, "We brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out." That's a good place to start.

Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:6-6:19
