Posted by stjohnsdiamondcreek in Not In Polite Company, Sunday@6

"Male and female he created them" says Genesis. Unfortunately, a persons gender is not that clear cut.

(spoiler: respond with love!)

Not In Polite Company - Romance

The Bible says heaps about love, and we hear lots of messages about loving God, and loving your neighbour (rightfully so, as they're the two greatest commands). Did you know, though, that there's a whole book of the Bible about romantic love, and sex? 

In this talk, Kirk looks at romance, dating and finding your "soulmate" from a biblical perspective.
