Baptists Preaching is a new column from the Baptist Standard. It is not an effort to advance any one theology or style but to present what a collection of Baptists considers a word from God. Likewise, Baptists Preaching offers a repository of Baptist preaching for future study and research.

John Whitten II: Distorted Sexuality (Genesis 2:25)
John Whitten II, lead pastor of the gathering, a ministry of Pioneer Drive Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas, talks about God’s design for sex, likening it to a banquet rather than a starvation or fast food diet. Sex is a difficult topic to address in a sermon because of sex-related hurt, and John reminds those listening that God doesn’t desire secrecy and shame but wholeness in Jesus Christ. This sermon was delivered during the morning worship service at the gathering on August 19, 2018, as part of a series of sermons titled “Counterfeit Gods.”
