Lesson 95: Idolatry and Immorality, Part I (Luke 16:18, Romans 1:16-32)

(Part I) Jesus’s one sentence on marriage and divorce in Luke 16:18 is grounded in so much more truth than He chose to share at that individual moment of teaching. Daniel brings further context to the topic through a look at Romans 1:16-32. The passage begins with a picture of great hope through the gospel and then explains why we need such a great hope by illustrating how mankind has chosen the path of degeneration through every form of idol worship. In this two-part sermon on this passage, Pastor Daniel emphasizes the central idea that “Your immorality began with your idolatry.” Coursing through the passage, two key points are highlighted. 1) Idolatry is rejecting God and worshipping ourselves, and 2) Immorality is the result of and God’s judgment on idolatry. Finally, he finishes the second sermon by returning to the beginning of the passage, maintaining that, “The gospel is God’s provision of righteousness for idolaters.”
