  2. 2. 1 Timothy 1:8-11  8 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.
  3. 3. Introduction  Said often, “You can't legislate morality.”  Truth – Morality is all that can be legislated  Today – Let everyone “do their own thing”  Doctrine is important to God  Doctrine includes our moral values  Immorality comes from three threats
  4. 4.

  5. 5. Threat 2 – Immoral Choices  1 Timothy 1:9b-10 for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,  Murders − Slay parents − Taker of human life  Fornicators  Whoremongers − To sell, prostitute − Homosexual acts, Sodomy
