We are in our 3rd week of our series series American Idols. And no, this doesn’t involve Simon Cowell, J Lo, Ryan Seacrest or any of the American Idol wannabes. However, we are going to talk about some of the idols that we have created in America, and the strongholds that they have created in our lives, even as Christians.

What is an idol? An idol is simply a false god. That person or that thing that you think fills you, completes you, provides for you, makes you happy, etc. It is anything that puts a barrier between you and the one true source, which is God. How do you know if something is an idol in your life? That person or thing that you can’t let go of, that you refuse to give up, that you rely on outside of God, etc. Those things are idols. It can be people, substances, feelings, material things…whatever. We use these things to fill voids that only God can fill, and that He wants to fill.

In this 3rd episode we are going to talk about the idol of FORNICATION. The term "sex sells" has been used for many years, but what exactly does sex sell? Particulary sex outside of marriage? Today we're going to look at the dangers of having sex outside of the context that God created. Sex is more than an emotional or physical connection, it's a spiritual connection. If you've ever wondered why you just can't seem to let go, why you're sprung, or how you became "whipped," tune in here!

We're going to explore what the Bible says about fornication in 1 Corinthians 6:15-20, and allow God to reveal to us what "real sex" really is.
