  1. Recently I read a great article which discussed the impact of using “purity” language with regards to sex, unlike any other form of sin. I wish I still had the link, but the short version was this: an impurity can not become cleansed. If a lamb wasn’t a good enough one to sacrifice in the Old Testament law, it’s not like you could go home and wash it off and try again. It was impure – a defect which could not be changed – and therefore useless for the purposes of God. When we insist that sexuality is a purity issue, unlike everything else, we are essentially saying that it is the one and only unforgivable sin.
