The list will make more sense along with the message which I will link to here once it becomes available.
|Table of Costs of Sexual Expression outside of God's Will|
|Act||Description||Cost (cumulative moving down)|
|Desire||includes same sex attraction||Not sin|
|Lust/Fantasy||Dwelling on the desire to imagining||Sin. Everything else down in the table is sin. Real guilt, adultery in heart|
|Pornography||Any visual media depicting nudity for its sexual appeal||See people as sexual objects, desensitized|
|Experimenting||Huge category: Everything short of intercourse, heterosexual or homosexual||Steadily increasing guilt; law of diminishing returns|
|Pre-marital sex||Pre-marital sex||Drastically increased emotional engagement: plays havoc on internal well being and sense of self, increased danger of pregnancy and/or disease|
|Adultery||Any sexual contact leading up to and including intercourse||Potential destruction of marriage, creates jealous rage|
|Subordinate||Sexual contact between a supervisor and someone within his or her responsibility||Always coercive, so increased damage to victim plus potential loss of job and legal ramifications|
|Abuse||Any sexual contact adult to child||All of the above plus horrific damage to child and others|
Forgiveness: Through grace and repentance real guilt before God can be forgiven, but that doesn't remove consequences.
