Identity and Sexuality

I’ve posted this link before on Facebook, but I think it’s worth posting again. This is a very good conversation on the subject of homosexuality and biblical sexuality, especially the conversation on “identity” beginning at 32:10. One of the things that is often repeated when it comes to sexuality issues is how one’s identity is wrapped up in their sexuality or in the things they do; and it shouldn’t be. In Christ we are new creations. Our identity is found in Him. To define yourself according to sexuality and the things you do is to place yourself under the yoke of cultural, spiritual, emotional, and mortal bondage. In Christ you are more than your sexuality. You are an adopted, reborn, image-of-Christ bearing, kingdom-of-God-inheriting, holy, sin-killing child of God.
