#metoo movement

Speaker: Grant Agler


#MeToo is a fantastic admission by our culture
Sex is powerful
Men should not use power for sexual fulfillment
Sexual exploitation is bad
 
#MeToo creates problems
Masculinity is considered toxic
There is no redemption for the guilty
It doesn’t identify the root problem
 
For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.  These are what defile a person.
Matthew 15:19-20
 
#metoo doesn’t recognize the heart problem that we all have
 
At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures.
Titus 3:3
 
We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.
Titus 3:3
 
But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.
Titus 3:4-5
 
He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
Titus 3:5
 
whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
Titus 3:6 -7
