A.I.D.S. and This Church

I Corinthians 6:9-11

Tonight I would like for us to begin to talk about a subject that is really not very enjoyable to discuss. The subject is A.I.D.S. I am sure that we have all heard about it, and that many of us have formed some opinions concerning it. However, I believe that it is time for us to consider it as a church. A.I.D.S. is coming to Grace Baptist Temple, what will we do when it arrives?

Note Some Statistics:

Now, you might say "What does that have to do with me, and what does it have to do with a Bible study at Grace Baptist Temple"? The answer: A.I.D.S. is coming to church, what will we do when it gets here?

I. We have been commissioned to go into all the world and to every creature.

II. We have established a purpose for this church and a covenant for its members.

III. Did we mean what we said, or was it just something that sounded good on paper.

IV. How would Christ deal with the sickness and suffering of A.I.D.S.?

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God."
