kept on reading their newspapers or looking the other way. When the couple finished, they lit up a cigarette. This was too much for the passengers who complained to the conductor, “This is a non-smoking train.” When people are more offended by public smoking that public sex, something is wrong with society.

Thesis: There are many truths that support God’s seventh principle for living. Point out 3 of them tonight.

For instances:
1. At the heart of the issue is marriage.
A. God wants sex kept sacred, because marriage is sacred to God.
B. In a woman’s magazine, an article “Reasons to commit adultery.”
1. Adultery is exciting. If your life is dull…
2. Adultery makes you a well rounded person. A wide range of experiences. Improve technique, etc.
3. Adultery is fun.
C. In order to have a decent society, we agree that “You shall not kill,” You shall not steal,” etc.
D. But when we start talking about sexual values, the culture says, “Wait a second. That’s not public concern. That is a private issue.”
E. At the building block of a family is a marriage. The cement that keeps a marriage couple together is their differences. God made us different physically and socially for a reason.

H. The permance of marriage.
1. More than procreation. We are different. Praise God!
2. Together, one mate, for life.
3. Marriages work because two people realize that it is for a lifetime. They invest in each other.
4. Studies have proved time and time again in every area that those who have good marriages have better lives.
5. (Mal 2:14 NIV) You ask, "Why?" It is because the LORD is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth, because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.
6. When God is Lord of our lives, He is also Lord of our marriage. When things get difficult, do we just say Bye Bye Lord.
7. Commit to each other from this day forward.
8. Get up before God and friends and family and say that you will be committed to each other. How good is your word?
I. Intimacy of marriage.
1. Sex involves sharing more than just one flesh. Sharing of life. Sex shares your body plus so much more.
2. One flesh, however, it also implies oneness in other areas. Things are going well in a marriage when the couple
